So does that mean they will stop selling PS3/Xbox 360 and taking them for trade credit?

I am sure they will still take them in, they offered me like 5 cents for my Gran turismo 5 ps3, I didn't trade it.. But that's what they are now offering.

Bestbuy gives $1 per generic game, so that's a minimum (might change soon, who knows)

Anyone know why the sudden change in ps3 and Xbox 360 games? Will they no longer work soon or something?

***edit** they denied trade in to some people, guess it's YMMV or they really are no longer taking ps3 Xbox 360 games

Probably. Most are only worth 25 cents on trade now anyway.

Not as good as the deal last year when they were selling most 360/ps3 pre played games for like $1.70 each, but still a good deal.

I wonder though, are the two free games from a set list i.e. shovel ware and sports titles?

I guess they need the floor space for more Funko Pop and other memorabilia... Plus, with the next gen rumoured to come out in 2020, they'll want to try to get rid of their likely massive stock of last gen games before they become absolutely worthless.

Ah so the rumours are true.

I don't play my PS3 much anymore but I'll check it out anyways to see if there's anything worth snapping up.

Thx Op.
This is warm I'd say.
although ps3 and 360 are mainly a thing of the past now I'd have to say this is a good way for collectors trying to build up a collection for a great price.
Also I've worked for group home's for specialized kids-teen's and this is a great way to help afford games for these types of situations especially budget options.

Buy low sell high, always make a way to get what you want!💪😁👌

Wii U isn't really in the same generation as these consoles. The PS3 and Xbox 360 competed directly with the Wii, not the Wii U.

XB360 = 2005 release date
PS3 = 2006 release date
Wii = 2006 Release date

Wii U = Late 2012 release date.
Xbox 1 and PS4 = Late 2013 release date

Plus, Wii U games still command a good price, I just sold a copy of Splatoon on Kijiji for $35 without breaking a sweat.
RFD: Pick any two.

1) In stock
2) Low Price
3) Quality Product

Yes... you pick all 3 games and pay for the highest price game of the 3, making the remaining 2 games free.

Yes you get to pick any in stock games. It will be pay for the most expensive game of the 3 you pick and get the 2 cheaper ones for free. So try to pick 3 games close to the same price.

Exactly. And you never know what might be BC in the future, so don't limit yourself to whats available today if you are ok with taking a gamble.

There's also heavy rumors of the PS5 being a 'Play Everything' machine (PS1-5 inclusive).... but this would be a much bigger gamble obviously.

This isn't gonna happen. PS4 vs PS3 use very different CPU architecture, and above all, there's way too money to be made rehashing last gen's games in "HD remasters" for the current generation console.

PS3 games are basically coasters unless you have a PS3 console to play them on. X360 games are more interesting due to many of them being playable in backward compatible mode on the XBone.

Is their online stock checker accurate because every game I looked at wasn't available anywhere in Canada.
