Get a Wii for £117.93 (well actually is cheaper cos u get quidco etc)

to get this for £117.93
you need to get some games to trade in

what I did

Buy 2 NBA2K7 for PS3 (cheapest at Choicesuk) 14.99
choicesuk.com/Pro…px/!826566

Buy 2 NHL2K7 for PS3 (cheapest at Play) 17.99
play.com/Gam…tml

Buy 2 Gundam Target In Sight for PS3 (cheapest at Play) 15.99
play.com/Gam…e=0

Buy Genji for PS3(Cheapest at Play) 19.99
play.com/Gam…tml

At BlockBuster / Gamestation you get £26 per PS3 Title

when u trade in all title u get £182.
they get a bit funny if u bring more than 2 of the same game. =) ive tried..

this works a treat I got a 360 last week for under £180

(if you rate bad please explain why)

Is a bit long winded but u cant get it any cheaper. hehe

If you are unsure about the deal go instore and ask how much trade in for the games before u decide to order them. Blockbuster and gamestation is linked. you can do it all in 1 go or you can do a bit at a time as they can create you an account to store your credit

Cool thanks.

I dig the sheer complexity of the whole thing!

Convoluted deals are *always* the best, since less people can be bothered to do it and that makes it more exclusive!

Respect

thanks for the ratings =)

Sounds like a good way of picking up a cheap wii.

The only problem comes if Gamestation's & Blockbuster's "trade-in" prices start dropping while you're waiting for your games to be delivered. :?

Voted Warm.

For a moment thought this is Spam :giggle:

Thanks for the effort zerowing

This deal is pretty good, voted hot. :thumbsup:

One word................. RESPECT !? lol



K

heck anyone voting cold on this must be a sadist,nice work lol.

voting hot for sheer effort.

just do it with the nba game and it will come to 104ish in total....do they say only 2 of the same game per customer ? if trade in prices start dropping just return the games or buy more games it still works out cheaper...the sites he lists are free returns anyway i think ?

I like your Style Heat + Rep .. Havat ! :thumbsup:

"Holy gametrading batman"

they had a sign behind the counter, saying don't take more than 2 of same game, so i went a few differnt days, when there were differnt staff..

but I been told no more NBA's from me.
as they wont take no more cos i traded 6 of them and they finnally clocked on.,
so I got my friend to swap em and get a wii.. as I used NBA for the 360

A true bargain hunter.... voted hot.... (but i think i will pass on trying this....)

Would t hey allow more then one copy of the same game if they suspect you are trying to game the system do you think the person at the till or manager could refuse it?

I've often gone to Gamestation and traded in two of the same game especially when Toys R Us have their BOGOF deals on and I've never had a problem at all:thumbsup:

this is loooooong but voted hot!

supadid - Choices did have NBA 2K7 for the PS3 instore for £19.99 with a £10 discount if you buy 2 games recently. I would call to check that promotion is still running though as it was a couple of weeks back

Good deal but I'm sure my blockbusters would catch on unless I put fake moustaches on etc :giggle:

Very time consuming and labour intensive, but voted hot for the sheer audacity:thumbsup:
Would it work with secondhand games bought from ebay ?

only may refuse on more than 2 of same game, i took 2 gundam into a branch yesterday no questions asked

for an xbox 360 premium for the price of £129.99 with a trade in, now the beauty of this is the games can be scraped to hell and the ps2 can be a piece of scrap (they dont test) the more games you have the cheaper the xbox becomes got mine for £117 also saw a few broken ps2 units on the bay for a couple of quid there was even one with fifty games for fifty quid so if you work the maths that would mean the 360 can be had for less than another £50

Would this work in both Gamestation and separate blockbuster store, we have both.

any ps3 title u get £26 so it would work as long as they ar PAL games!

Do you get £26 or £26 worth of credit?

Does anyone know if when you trade in a game at blockbusters it says the games name on the account, or does it just say "ps3 game"?? Already traded in a gundam, genji and NBA, was wondering if i try to trade the same again, will it come up on the system?

Massmail666 ... if u are worried, keep the games unopened, go in store and ask how much for trade in... then if it sounds good.. open then..
if not jus return to choices or play

Oh and voted hot as the greater effort means that this deal is more likely to slip under Blockbuster/Gamestations radar.

I love it! I'm suspecting this sort of all hinges on the games you order being factory sealed when they arrive? I've certainly had games delivered unsealed from the sites listed before.


PS Voted HOT and rep given!

I reckon Sony will begin to think their PS3 is a success with so much game sales :giggle:

jesus wept i have to say it but gary_rip does my kin head in.big style.

Ive just phoned my local gamestation store and he said bring in as many as you want! Hope my order comes soon.

If they do catch on, then they simply lower trade in values.
There's nothing illegal about buying games cheap, and selling them on at higher prices. It's exactly what they do to us!!!!
