    Venetica giving $45. Are they mad?
    Metascore 47 out of 100 & you can buy off eBay for less than #30

    EB have a deal at the moment where they give +50% on all trade ins if you trade towards a pre-order.

      Thats why EB trade prices are so low.... they fool you into thinking you are getting 50% extra, when all they have done is drop their trade-in prices!

      Dont be fooled.....

        It's not particularly hard to add the 50% and then compare with other retailers.

        I got $58.50 for Donkey Kong Returns and $39 for Bulletstorm and put it towards Battlefield 3 on PC.

        I was happy.

    I traded in Portal 2 on Ps3 at GAME this week and got $50 for it.. Not bad considering i downloaded the 'free' copy on steam

    Has anyone else noticed that GAME had the best trade prices and a better quality of staff? EB don't help at all of you hasn't a question our something, GAME bend over backwards to help...

      I've Noticed that the old staff at Eb's Marion used to be like that, their a bit better now even still a couple of weeks ago I stood at the counter from anywhere between 5 - 10 minutes before they even acknowledged me. Game are better but whenever I've been their they've never given me that much for trade-in's. I always shop at Gametraders Marion best shop I've ever bought games from their a lot cheaper then game and Eb's actually putting their games on sale unlike Eb's who just slap a price tag for double the games RRP and then put a 50% off sticker on there. plus Gametraders have a larger range, I saw a NES with cartridge with mario and duckhunt controllers and the gun all in it's original box for $300 I want to know how Gametraders aren't on here.

        Maybe game traders isn't on here because of the franchise thing??? Each one will give a different trade price where EB/ GAME/ JB will give the same company wide 9/10 times?

      Staff change form store to store.
      You can get good or shit service anywhere you go.

        Definitely true. I'm always disheartened when people come into my store and mention how much better our service was then one of our other stores. We always strive for the best at our own, but not everyone does sadly

    I find EB staff are much better and way more knowledged. The GAME staff closest to me at capalaba central in brisbane are rude and horible. The girl with the pink hair down there never even says boo to you and 15mins later it's up to me to ask a question cause there's no way she or anyone else is coming up to me to say hi or ask if I need help. EB with no problems will happily give you a 7 day refend if you don't like the game, but again at that GAME store at capalaba they treat you like you're just stuffing them around and basicly try to find an excuse to not return it. Whenever I've bought games from GAME i've regretted ever going in the store but at EB there's never a problem and always helpful service. EBFTW!

    there is a deal on jbhifi atm, u trade in 3 and get 1 free. I realy want resistance 3 and it is under one of the free games. Mabye I can get eough money from the trade ins to preorder battleifeld 3 realy excited about that.
