The current list of acceptable trade-in titles can be found here (the list is liable to change from Friday 19 October).
With online prices for some of those games being what they are consumers simply need buy two of the cheapest games on the trade-in list, and use them as part of the deal, meaning Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Halo 4, Assassin’s Creed 3 etc can be yours for as little as £21.41 after all is said and done.
It seems like an incredible loophole, but the offer actually gets better if either a) you already own one the games required to trade, or b) you’re able to trade the same game twice – two copies of Neverdead (PS3) come to £16.68 + £0.99 makes each game an incredibly low £17.67. We’ll contact Game for clarification.
Update: Game has confirmed that consumers will not be able to trade-in the same title twice. So £21.41 is the cheapest deal for now.
Too good to be true? We’ll check with Game for clarification – but keep an eye on that tradeable games list for the cheapest titles.
