Awesome! I'll go to my nearby EB Games and see if it works out.
If you have the composite cable bring that with you just in case. Let us know how it worked out for you.

Whatever kido. Lots of people getting on this promo with out an issue guess why...because their controllers were in GOOD condition.

Nobody is acting like pricks..or treading you like a criminal, I find hard to believe TWO diferent locations denied your controller because they are douchbags like you called them. Again they are doing their jobs to screen the controllers and refuse the bad ones, you already accepted your controller has a slightly tear damage but you still want them to pay you full and come here insulting the employees and with all this drama show. "They treated me like a criminal" lol

I am going to trade 2 ps3 controllers will report my awful and traumatic experience later.
No this guy is right. When I walked into south common store the lady (who I think could have been the manager judging by how she presented herself) saw the controller in my hand and was already opening her mouth to speak. I looked at her in confusion. I just traded my USED controller into another eb games. Lol the way she reacted was like I had to buy a new controller, open it and trade that in. Just because some are getting good reps doesn't mean it's not happening.

The other eb store stated my controller was fine. Normal wear and tear from a controller taken care of for 4 years

Just got back from EB Games, here are my results:

-They accepted my 2 PS3 controllers no problem whatsoever. They didn't check it at all; I just went up to the counter, said that I was interested in their promotion and they took my ps3 controllers.
-For PS3s, they now only accept the 500gb model. They do not accept any other models older than the 500gb version.

Regardless of them not taking my PS3, i'm happy with the $60 trade-in. Gave them an extra $5 for 2 Google Play cards.

Canada,Eh!
For the PS4 controller, does anyone here know if they give the full trade in credit ($50 + tax) towards gift cards?

I'm looking to pick up a $50 Steam card to use towards a pre-order for Project CARS 2.

Since gift cards are tax free, theoretically I should receive a $6 store-credit here in BC if my controller is actually worth $56 in trade towards an immediate store purchase.

If you choose a tax free purchase, it's your choice/problem.

You will not get $6 back

Thanks. How much did they quote you for the 500gb model?

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.
I haven't traded in something in years, what do you mean use the credit right away to save tax?

Use right away and the value is taken off the sub total of what you are buying or ordering. Meaning before tax so you end up saving 50 plus tax. If you dont use it right away you just get a 50 gc.

Ahh nice, thanks!

Perhaps will pre order the Destiny 2 Pro bundle. Big time investment though

Like i suggested earlier, one alternative is order Ni No Kuni 2, which doesnt come out till Jan then if you find something you want to buy, cancel the pre order and use the credit on that. Odds are DS4 will go on sale during either BF or BD so its a decent solution for those who just want to update their DS4 for free (minus not actually having it until it goes on sale).
