Pretty sure Trade 3 is ongoing. It's in their newsletters.

So who's watching the Superbowl?
HINT: It better be everyone

I despise both teams, but there should be a great game of football ahead. Go Patriots, I guess.

I didn't watch it, I don't follow any kind of sports. :razz:

Sorry, I meant the Apollo Justice preorder bonus, which was just announced a week or two ago- the keychain

i'm honestly not expecting EB to get anything, as has been shown by all the past Ace Attorney swag-less launches.

You best bet would be used CD stores in a big city.
I've seen lots in Toronto.

I don't suppose anyone got ahold of the Feb newsletters from Rogers/Blockbuster?


To answer my own question, Rogers has no advertised gaming deals this month, and Blockbuster advertised their Trade-4. :cry:

Trade 3 for 1 I belive is still on for
Turok, SSM Brawl, Devil may Cry 4. Burnout Paradise, Haze.

stores should still honor the Trade 3 for 1 for about 2 weeks past the release dates so if you still want to get those games after reading the reviews theres ur opertunity.

My own question:
Say for example I have a launch 60 GB PS3 and have the box and UPC code for it.
Can i use a recent reciept from a 40/80 GB PS3 to claim the Blu ray deal?

Probably not...the UPC's will inform them that it is from a 60GB unit. Though, it may be worth the try...you never know how diligent they are being, but I'm going to assume that the UPC's differ in some aspect. You should look at a UPC for a 40/80 and see how different the numbers are.

It all depends on the purchase date on the receipt, regardless of PS3 model. So if, a big if, the launch PS3 was bought after Oct 2007, it should be eligible for the promo. If the receipt says anything related to the model such as model name, UPC, etc, I would say you should not waste your UPC for nothing.

I heard someone actually photoshopped ineligible receipt and got the offer. He actually phoned the 1-800 number on the form and bluffed that the store he bought closed. The guy said they do not verify the purchase with the store. This is very YMMV, and might considered as a fraud. Is it worth trying for 5 bluray movies? It's upto you.

Has anyone seen nunchucks for less than $24.99? I don't imagine so, but I figure I might as well check.

Do they change the games ever so often?
Like, will there be one for GTA4?

Toys R Us had them for $19.97 a couple weeks ago. I think it's $19.99 on Amazon.ca: buy 2 for free shipping.

Has anyone seen Resitance: Fall of Man cheaper than MSRP in Canada? I want to buy this game but I refuse to pay full price for something over 1-year old.


I found Resistance at the Gatineau Loblaws (Maloney Blvd.) for $49.99. I think this is their regular price as it just had a normal shelf tag. Not a great deal but better than $60 at BB or FS.

Are there currently any stores selling the 2 pack official PS2 memory cards for less than $25?

I have a question about Wii remotes and nunchuks. This week Toys R Us has them at $5 off each. Do sales like that happen very often? I know Dell had the $54 bundle and the Wii Play + nunchuk for $49.99... besides those, have there been other deals in the past? Thanks.


Best wiimote deal I've ever seen was Wiiplay at zellers for 39.99 before christmas. Beyond that, the only deal on the nunchuk I have ever seen was the 5 dollars off you mentioned above, toys r us likes to do it every once in a while and I've seen the same price at other stores before. Guess they are just trying to pass off what the real price should be as a "sale".

This isn't really a huge deal...but I have found that Zellers currently has Wii Points cards for $19.99, which is about $5 off anywhere else. It's not a huge deal, and I don't think it's a sale (but I have seen it fluctuate between 24.99 and 19.99), but it is worth checking out. It's $5 savings.

Just a request for Ottawa-region CAGers:

If you, when shopping for your own deals/games, happen to spot a new copy of Bioshock Limited Edition for the 360, please give me a shout!

I've checked out plenty of stores, including the recommended EBGames. They told me that I'll have a very hard time finding it, and I'm inclined to agree. It seems this was actually "limited" unlike, say, Halo 3's "limited" copies.

So yeah, in the off-chance anyone does spot one, please let me know :)

Princess Zelda: I checked out the Kanata EB a couple of weeks back. Turns out they do still have a special edition Bioshock, but it's for the PC. I thought it was the 360 one when I saw it too, but alas, heh. Good eye, though, thanks.
