Thinking of trading spiderman and monster hunter world for Anthem pre-order. Is it worth it even though it's priced at 79.99 now?

So I trade the 2 games in towards Anthem and pay the remaining and won't get charged tax on the 79.99?
I wouldn't trust BioWare again. Anyway, maybe an unpopular opinion, but Anthem has Destiny 3.0 written all over it, to me.

Does Platinum Edge card get us anything extra if we trade in one of these titles?
IT does not. I traded Spider-Man and Just Cause 3 at lunch and used my Platinum Edge and I got $40 and $15 respectively.

You pay tax on the outstanding amount.

Anthem has potential but to me, it's a wait and see type of game. I doubt it'll be a mess like Andromeda was but I find, it may not do well once released. Not because it's a bad game but I get the impression people are getting tired of the destiny formula or don't want to add another games as a service to their backlog.

To me, it looks like it may end up like warframe. It won't appeal to most but those who get into it, really get into it.

Edit: Ended up trading in Splatoon 2 since I was never playing it and it's primarily an online experience. Put it towards Final Fantasy XII for Switch (Dec 31, 2019 release date...basically no release date). May end up moving it to something else if an unexpected desired game shows up in the next year.

Since monster Hunter World ($25) plus Spider-Man ($40) would equal $65
Then $79.99- $65 trade in credit equals $14.99 difference
You would pay taxes on the difference ONLY
so $14.99 plus taxes = $16.93 out of pocket

I traded in Splatoon 2 for Super Smash! Thanks OP. With the credit + taxed saved, I got $51 dollars for my game.

I'm thinking of doing the exact same thing. Even though EA and Bioware have a bad rep, I've been watching some recent gameplay vids and it's reminding me of Mass Effect 3's multiplayer which I loved. Was gonna try the open beta first but don't wanna pass up this trade-in promo.

And I'm pretty sure you won't get charged tax for trade-in towards a pre-order.

Pretty sure a lot of people are calling Anthem the next Destiny...

It does not. It's one or the other.

Whatever the base value is just has to be over $10 for the trade 3 for 1.

It doesn’t stack but both promos are running

So if you have a game like Mario vs. Rabbids, it is not included in Trade Bump deal but is included in trade 3 get it free
So Mario vs. Rabbids would get a bump to $26.67 towards any $79.99 preorder title

Link with qualifying titles for trade 3 get it free https://www.ebgames.ca/Views/Locale/Con ... lue-en.pdf

I found an old copy of NHL 17 PS4 at home, I guess it’s not worth trading in, probably worth only $1?

It's probably worth $0.01, I'm pretty sure they cleared those out.
