Anyone try to trade in the PS3 sixaxis controller (the one without rumble)? Do you get $30 trade credit?
i just tried today, sixaxis is ineligible for this promotion rep said, traded in my other DS3 for 30 though

I don't have an external HD, I don't mind re-downloading/installing my games but am curious if all the save data and trophies are automatically saved in the cloud? I do have PS Plus and I understand that's a feature included, essentially all I would need to do is reinstall my games from the disk or store and I should be good?
Saves should be auto uploaded if you have Plus. You can go to Settings > Application Saved Data Management and check the saves you have online there, and manually upload any saves you need to as well.

Just make sure to remove the account from the system and wiping it before trading it in.

Wow this is the worst promo ever...went to South Common EB Games and my DS4 controller was denied because of wear....I mean do they want you to buy a new controller, open it and then trade it? The sony controllers have ALWAYS been like that. After minimal use the analogs begin to fade. Mine wasn't even bad at all. A lot better than anyone else I know who has a PS4.

When I went in recent months, they told me they don't sell an actual EA Access card per se. They recommended I use my credit to buy Xbox credit, and then use that credit to make my purchase for EA Access.
Can you do that now? Previously MS would only allow you to buy subscriptions with a CC, not with credit.

Thanks op! Traded in one ds4 with a sticky dpad and one ds3 I got for free at a garage sale for $80. Picked up Nier for $50 and still have $35 credit for a ds4 when it goes on sale later in the year. Put it on a pre-order to keep the tax on the account.

This is why I try to avoid dealing with EB games if possible. Some people have no problems trading in their disgusting controllers, some people are offered less credit, and some people get denied like you for something minor. Try a different store, or go back when the rep that denied the trade is off.

At Ironwood EB in BC, traded 2 DS3s and 1 DS4 today. Was denied trading in a DS3 with a nub-less stick. Still pretty great promo.

First of all you should have called or actually read this topic before trying.

My launch controllers still have the rubbers on the analogs. You just didn't take care of your controller. Not EB Games' fault.

I am no fan of eb just like most of you here. However, gotta give credit when due, $50 for ps4 controller is fair. Condition of controller is solely dependent on you, possibly on Sony (if defective), eb has nothing to do with it. I traded launch ps4 controller that looked like new, so I had no problem. Wear and tear is just that, I wouldn't accept worn controllers either.

I had given a Dualshock (PS3) to a friend and only had a non Dualshock at home. Stopped by my friend's house, swapped controllers and went to EB Games. Put up the $30 against the (next) Uncharted pre-order. ;)

P.S. Friend didn't care, he barely plays anymore. Plus I had bought a 2nd PS4 controller just for the few times he comes around my place to play Madden.

I think he's mad because his 1+ year old used every day for 10 hours a day controller that probably went back in time to battle through WWII was declined by EB Games employees. Definitely don't think he's mad about EB giving $50 credit for controllers. Mad about not getting that credit luls.

For those looking for pre orders to save the tax, ni no kuni 2 wont be released till Jan so its a decent choice since you can swap it during boxing week or black friday week.

Was able to trade in 4 ps3 controllers and 2 PS4 controllers. For $220. Ended up getting a 3ds xl for $22 after tax. The store didn’t care about the condition of the controllers. Both PS4 controllers had serious wear and tear with damaged buttons. The 2/4 ps3 controllers had no anolog padding. None of the controllers had been cleaned or powered on for 5 years for ps3. And 2 years for PS4. Not even sure if they even work. Told the clerk that they are excess controllers that haven’t been used in years so not sure if they work. She said it s all good because the going in a pile anyways. Not sure what she meant by that. But I appreciate it that she was being anal about the condition of the controllers. If I knew that was the case I would of brought in my other PS4 controller that is missing a RT button. Thanks op for the heads up.
