there might be other fine print that the post didn't know about (minimum trade in values, etc).  deal certainly seems too good to be true...but who knows.

Wow. That's crazy if it's true. Just taking any old crap? Even if you don't have any on hand, you can always find crap at EB for $5. Hell, if you don't want to make the extra stop you can probably find something at FS/BB for ~$10.

Futureshop's Twitter confirms it, so it appears to be legit. Hopefully the employees on the floor are made aware of it by tomorrow.

So, if I go buy Assassin's Creed for $9.99. I can trade that in for Assassin's Creed IV?

You can trade in ANY game from this gen, go get a $1 game from another store.

I don't think there's a store in my area, selling current gen games for $1.

Regretting not picking up that copy of Bulletstorm for $2 now. I'm sure I can find something to trade though. Might get ACIV and then do the cheap upgrade to the PS4 version.

Defiantly doing ACIV, and then returning my unopened copy I pre-ordered with EB.

Gamestop has a few. Looking a Futureshop's website they have a ton of used $5 games.

So the game to trade in must have original case?

Someone over on RFD just posted this. Hopefully some more reliable information comes out on this deal. I don't want to look like an idiot tomorrow morning! lol

 

I just got a call from Futureshop from a girl who seemed to know what she was talking about. She said that Futureshop really dropped the ball on the information for the promotion. She contacted head office and they told her it has to be a game that they arr currently selling for $59.99, seems pretty stupid to me but take it for what it is. I also told her that there would be alot of negative fallout for Future Shop from this and she said she wouldn't be surprised if that happened. Just posting what I was told, and as I said she seemed to know what she was talking about and was aware of the promo.

I knew there was a catch, and someone else posted aobut that on the FutureShop forums.

Even if its for a game selling for $59.99 (has that been confirmed?)  Go pick up Splinter cell at shoppers for $19.99 and swap it for one of the three that you want.

...Shoppers Drug Mart?

Yes.

 

BUT it looks to me that it is ANY current gen. game and that employee has no idea what she was talking about.

 

FS has posted the details.   So if you don't have any games, go to EB and pick up something for under then go to your local FS and BB and get two games for cheap.  

 

I'll be taking my gf so I can actually get all three.

well, other people on FS forums are saying they "heard" its a 60$ game to trade-in as well. I'm hoping confirmation is coming out soon. Injustice sells for 60$ at FS so I'm taking that with me.

Did people really expected to get a new $59.99 game in exchange for an old game?

Does future shop accept all games? I know EB games stops accepting old sports games at a certain point so maybe that is the same with Future Shop?

That's what the article stated. Even Futureshop themselves stated this on their forum.

 

Hi everyone,

 

Yes, ANY current generation game will apply. There are no lists or restrictions on price or current availability on our website. It only has to work and with its original jewel case.

 

What I have been informed is that Manitoba is not participating due to local legislation (sorry, I do not have any further info on this).

 

Please note that I have ammended the original post and added some FAQs.

 

Thanks!
 

Jorge

It's confirmed. I called two Futureshops, and they both told me the same thing. ANY Ps3/Xbox360/Wii U game for these 3.
