I've got a $10 trade in gift card plus a 10% discount (I work for Target's ad company) plus my 5% RedCard.
Picking up Madden + FIFA + Uncharted 3. Selling Uncharted to my coworker for $40.
$120 - $10 (GC) - Discount = $93.50 for 3 games. Minus $40 for uncharted and I'm paying about $27 a piece for Madden and FIFA.
I'd buy Batman and keep uncharted 3 but I have yet to finish uncharted 1 (almost done) nor start 2 which I got for $20. I'm also still halfway through Arkham Asylum. So if I ever finish my backlog of PS3 games which I buy but take months to play (RDR, Heavy Rain, Uncharted 1&2, FF13, Batman AA), most of these newer games will be cheaper anyways.
It's tough for me to find lots of time to play. With sports games I can play one game and get my fix. Plus I get to enjoy a current roster which lines up fun with the actual football season. It sucks simply because sports games have a playing season which makes it easier for me to push off the more exciting, story based games...
