[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.

Actually it can be less than that. I bought 2 gold controllers @ SDM for $50 each ($100) during redemption week (spend points, get points back). Without going too much into the whole SDM thing, their reward system generally have some promo going on and they actually have the controllers going on sale @ $50 quite often. Rather you combine that with weekly promo of 20x points, 18500, redemption, GC, etc you're basically getting the controllers @ roughly $40 + tax (could be less depending on the promo but even their worst weekly promo is basically $10 GC for $50+, which can be combined with 15x weekly personalized coupon if you have that).

Basically its like $45 SDM -> $50 EB GC (or pre-order something that won't be released till next year then switch your pre-order when you actually buy something, then you save the tax too).

Thanks, i think i might. But I can also get some credit
for the games and console as well right? Even if its $1-$3 a game, thats about $15-$45 extra i can get and maybe $5-$10 for the console? lol

for the standard color ones, like black, silver, red, etc., trade them in ASAP, but rarer stuff like gunmetal, green, gold, see-through colors, etc. , you could probably get $30 cash or higher if it's in nice shape.
My last and final digital game I purchased at PSN from those Sony Devils was on November 22, 2020 - Ban that Sorny!

Since in your Toronto I'd try to contract one of those retro video game stores (I believe there is one downtown) and see if they'll give a bit more for some of your games. The person that purchased mine actually had a small store like that.
