Not bad.

The CE is probably going to be similar to the Halo 2 CE.


This is an attempt from a 2nd (or 3rd) tier game retailer trying to secure your purchase before the big guns roll out their marketing plans for Halo 3. Blockbuster is willing to take the loss to get you in their doors.


Your only risk is that you may not get it from Blockbuster on the day of launch. If that doesn't bother you it looks like a nice deal (especially if you trade Xbox, PS2 or Game Cube games).


I doubt the higher tier game retailers will make offers much better than this. They will likely be better suited to get you the game on the launch day but they have more to loose by offering deals. Still, waiting for better deals might be something to consider.

If it's anything like last time, there's a minimum trade in value for the games. They had a similar promo with Gears (and a bunch of other games), and the 8 Xbox/gamebube games I took in were all under their threshold. Ended up trading Kameo and Pd0 for gears (since it was 2 360 games at the time).


I'll have to stop by and check it out though-thanks for the tip.

Yes here's the catch. Talked to my friend who's a manager for the store here in Goderich. The games being traded in MUST give you at least $7.50 Canadian back in credit. However all xbox 360 titles and PS 3 titles register as $7.50 credit!


So here's my list. Chromohounds (not what I thought it would be) NHL 2K6, Mortal Kombat annilation and Halo 2 (don't need it with GOW and Halo 3!)
