[EB Games] EB Games Trade Deal - $50 for PS4 controller, $30 for PS3 controller. August 11-13 only.

EB Games has a promo starting August 11 until August 13. Controllers must be in working condition.

Trade any Dualshock 4, get $50

Trade any Dualshock 3, get $30.


Perfect time to dump any old controllers you might have lying around. As always, remember to use the credit right away on something or put it towards a preorder to save tax.

Hi there,

I would keep those DS3 controllers for your PS3, they are hard to find these days. Unless you want to get rid of your PS3...

I have mushy buttons on my first generation DS4. It is still functional though. I think rubber pads are worn out. Can I still get full credit?

Pretty good deal if you have excess old DS4 controllers (not the newer model).

I was rejected on a PS4 system trade in because the stick had a tear in it. Im guessing it depends on the CSR and their mood, but I don't think they are supposed to take them.

Nice deal !

I don't understand the math with them making money by buying our PS4 controller for 50$ though ? Walmart standard price for those controller are 60$ and they fell at 50$ once in a while.

I'll change all my controllers to buy brand new ones for the price of the taxes !

Hmmm so if I trade in my two PS3 controllers on a system i no longer touch (have XBONE) i can get $60? I wonder what i can get on kijiji if i sold the whole system, two controllers and about 15-20 games? Does EB still give credit for PS3 games and console? Wonder if I can get about $100 or so if i just traded it all in...

I think they do but the value for games will be virtually nothing (i.e. like $1 or less). You might get something for your console but they'll probably want a controller with the console.

I'd do the 2 controllers asap. I sold a similar bundle (only about 10 games though) for $100 and that took forever to find someone.
