[EB Games] Trade PS4 slim for NHL 2020 PS4 PRO ($250)

Hi, so I know there is another thread for the ebgames sale, but I think this could interest some people. So I traded in my PS4 slim for a pro. It doesn't say you can trade it in for the NHL bundle but when I asked they double checked the restrictions and said there weren't any and that I could get it.

I'm planning to sell the game, so let's say if I sell it for $50, then the cost for the trade would come down to about $230 total which isn't bad for the pro. YMMV though since some store associates might not give it even though there aren't any restrictions. I got it at Vaughan mills.
I think the last date for the trade offer is the 20th.

Keep the $250 and save for PS5 next year is what I thinking. ONLY potential problem is maybe the Slim wont be allowed for trade toward PS5 and only the Pro. But i would say it likely will, for example $200 for slim towards ps5 and something like $300 for Pro towards ps5. Basically i am gonna take a bet that the difference of trading a slim and pro for a ps5 will be less than just keeping your $250 and saving for ps5. I could be wrong, but that’s what i am betting

you think you will get 200 for a slim next year as trade for ps5?? I think there is a very slim chance there!

dont think they are even accepting launch ps4's for trade for these promos anymore

If you're planning on keeping your PS4 after the PS5 comes out this will get you a newer console that will last longer into the future, and a new warranty. I'm somewhat leaning towards keeping my PS4 (I already have a Pro) myself as it will allow me to have a console on each TV, plus I'm not entirely sure I want to get the first version of the PS5 that comes out given there will be revisions.

There's also an argument to be had that straight up buying a PS5 at Shoppers during a 20x event or a bonus redemption event, assuming they carry it, is better than trading in your PS4 for a PS5 once it comes out - if it's $499.99 like the Pro, you'll get almost $150 worth of points back during a 20x event, which is worth nearly 2 games or two controllers (plus the 150k points can be worth like $190 during a bonus redemption), or a bonus redemption event can get you $300+ off.

Ya guy above dream if he thinks he going to get $200 for slim next year. I think the ps4 price will go below $200 by then.

I did forget to mention - I'd wait to see what happens during Black Friday. If the Pro goes on sale (I can't see it not, the question is how much), there's a possibility the sale price + TIV at EB exceeds the $250 off they're giving here. The Slim is $200 base value anyways, so you're only getting a $50 boost.

The trade deal is cold. Even if you sell the slim for $150 that's $400 toward the PS5.

I did the trade. Just bought a cheap slim off Kijiji, it was in terrible cosmetic shape and I'm not even sure how well it worked. The guy was so clueless he didn't even know it was a slim. In anycase never had a ps4 so i got one for around $350. I also traded in all his games except red dead 2 (had a handful of games and I got the bundle for $125)

Oh plus NHL which I'll try selling or wait for a boost day at ebgames. Do those happen often?

They will want you to trade up to upgrade (more money for sales, also more units they say they sell at launch is more units to sell in general cus it'll look better outselling the xbox.) So I'm sure you'll be able to trade but the value will be a bit lower if anything. It cant be too much lower because then people won't want to trade.

So the deal includes a hard copy of NHL 20? So many times I see it does not with bundles. Also really with the game now down tp $59.99 in Canada on sale to the 20th and well it is past the $50 trade in worth thing eh really how much can one ever expect to get for it now? So hard to sell stuff used these days in my area and so if someone says $50 flat is what I should get eh no way. Anyway as for saving for a PS5 that does seem to make the most sense.

Oo I probably won't even get it at launch since not many games would be around, probably would cost a lot more and also honestly I'm definitely getting tlou2 when it comes out so I want to play that game at its best at that time (well before it comes out on the ps5)
