Some pretty kickass deals here - $19 for Prince of Persia or Star Ocean (360), $25 for the excellent Soul Calibur IV (PS3) etc.. Kicked off this morning, so I'd be quick.

More importantly, it's a chance to get 3 games to trade in at JB Hifi for something new & save yourself around $40-50 (as almost none of the titles on sale are on JB's exclusion list yet)

Does that trade deal include any 3 games on any system? or are they after selected titles?

Also which games do they have up for trade? i'm assuming only the ones pictured.

I'd be interested in Assassins Creed 2.

You have to trade games from the same system afaik - So 360 games for a 360 trade deal etc... I've abused JB's trade system before to get Wii Sports resort for a grand total of $40 (When EB did a 'buy 1 preowned, get 1 free' deal).

^ I've always thought they end up at some central clearing house for used games and then sold on to EB or the like for a pittance. There's always 100 copies of Dynasty Warriors for the 360 in the bargain bin.

They normally re-sell them for a fair chunk of cash. Getting to keep 100% of the profits too, which can generally end up making more money for them than selling a new title.

Vin diesel presents a vin diesel game starring vin diesel with characters based on characters played in movies by vin diesel

also things like this are frequent: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y0u_XpxSTY0

It plays like a poorly constructed, buggy, car focused GTA-4 without the "hey cousin, lets go do something a lot less fun than what you're currently doing"

and for some reason it is incredibly fun (for $20)

My neighbour used the JB trade deal on 10 compies of assassins creed 2 a couple of weeks ago......buy 3 $20 games from EB, trade them for Assassins creed 2 then trade it back to EB...........now he's trying to flog his $900 worth of EB Vouchers. I reckon there are easier ways to make $300.

The TRU Wii deal is if you've already spent $200 you can get a Wii for $199.99. So they still get 399.99 out of you.

In wheelman you play VIN DEISEL in VIN DEISEL's WHEELMAN.

You're an underground escape driver doing random jobs and making a name for yourself in a city with many factions of underground criminals. You're ballsy but good with women. You can bluff your way into and out of situations.

But none of that matters because once you are in a car, you can "AIRJACK". That is, you want a different car? F*** getting out, scaring people on the road and then pulling the person out of it GTA style. No f*** that to hell. You open the door of your moving car and you f*****g leap at someone elses car. You slam your feet through the window smashing them out their door and take over driving, with no loss of movement speed.

Once you are in a car, and you've got someone tailing you wanting to take you out, you use your special moves, and 180 your car, and then slow-mo to aim your gun either at the driver, the tyres or the fuel tank. You blow them up, either way and massive explosions everywhere.

Once you are on a bike, you're unstoppable. You cant turn for s***, but if a car comes at you head on, do a wheelstand and you'll 100% garantee yourself to be safe, but also launched in the air like a rocket.

Also in a car, you can use your amazing driving skills to pretty much cause anything to explode. You have buttons to slam other cars, you have buttons to shoot them you have buttons for NOS.

The game is honestly everything you ever asked for in a game, a f*****g hillarious main character, the ability to blow s*** up at the drop of a penny, and most of all its super fun. The storyline is pretty much on par with any other gangsta game, its seems to be set in england? So you get these semi pommy/latin/italian accents.

Everyone hates this game and i have no idea why. Play it. You'll realise its a s*** game which is really awesome. Its s*** because its not finished though, not because it's not fun. in fact you can pretty much glitch all over the place at times, occasionally events don't work right and overall the quality is a bit poor, but you'll forgive all of that as you start watching explosions while you are driving really fast.

Oh and its got vin deisel. No matter if you love him or hate him, this is exactly what you'd expect from the man. Either he's ironically tough, or maybe he really thinks he is. Who knows. But make fun of him or get in the spirit of it because its fantastic.

That's what i like about Skythra's repsonses: Attention to detail, no matter how brief the initial question is.

So yeah, Thanks.
