Future Shop trade in deal
This Saturday to Monday, gamers can trade in any title for Call of Duty: Ghosts, Battlefield 4 or Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag.

It might seem too good to be true, but according to the Financial Post’s video game section, the Post Arcade, Future Shop and Best Buy are offering Battlefield 4, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and Call of Duty: Ghosts, for free if you trade-in any game.

Future Shop recently posted this statement about the first day of this sale on their official forums:

“Today, our unprecedented used game offer kicked off and attracted incredible responses at all our stores in Canada. This offer invited customers to trade-in any one game in exchange for a new copy of Assassin’s Creed IV, Battlefield 4 or Call of Duty: Ghosts. Boxing Day-like crowds came out in droves and walked away with a new game.

The response from customers has been amazing and far exceeded our expectations. With such a hot offer, our limited quantities ran out rapidly on day one resulting in some stores now being out of stock.

We want to also take a moment to thank Canadian gamers for visiting our stores and making our used games promotion a tremendous success!”

The deal runs from Saturday Nov. 9 to Monday Nov. 11 and is valid for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U version of the above games.

People lined up early Saturday morning to take advantage of the sale. Most stores are reportedly already sold out across the country.

Stranger gaming related sales have happened though when it comes to video game slaes. A few years ago Rogers offered a rather ridiculous buy-one-get-two-free sale on all video games.

Future Shop and Best Buy are obviously using this promotion as a way to promote their game trade-in program. Usually when someone wants to sell their video game to a store for credit, they think of EB Games.

Future Shop recently opened up a discussion thread on their website to answer questions about the deal. Red Flag Deals also posted the sale on their website as well. I imagine that while this sale is chain wide, some customer service representative and store managers will probably be unaware of it. Tweet me [MENTION=397]PATRICK[/MENTION]_ORourke and let me know if you’re able to take advantage of the deal at your local Future Shop or Best Buy and send me pictures of the long lines.

The stores not participating in the promotion are located in Nanaimo and Kelowna British Columbia. Vaughan and Richmond Hill locations in Ontario aren’t part of the promotion either. Pembina, St. James, and Garden City, locations in Winnipeg, Manitoba also aren’t part of this crazy deal either. S

Some people on twitter have got in contact with me and stated that all locations in Winnipeg are participating in this sale though.

I went to the sale myself and got BF4 and CoD Ghosts.. but sadly missed out on AC4 :( The guy in front of me got the last AC4 copy! :cry:
