Default Maybe EA have a point?

Ok so I have been vocal on the whole "EA hates the pre-owned market" thing, but maybe they have a point about retailers ripping "everyone" off.

I got this in my inbox this morning from EB Games:


The link did not tell me what the list of 500 games were. But am I right in assuming that I give them one of my games and they let me buy Red Dead Redemption at the same price JB HiFi will sell it to me without a trade?

Knowing JB ... it will be $89 on the day of release anyway ...

Holy cow, I hope people don't fall for that. That is just plain daylight robbery.

Would be nice if JBHIFI give the 3 games and it's free option, I think that's not to bad and a good slap in the face of EBGames.

Pulsar Bendigo

Best place to buy games, unfortunately they only have a store in Bendigo now

RDR $79

That's actually expensive for them.

I refuse to buy from EB on principle, the more sales they get the more their prices go up.

Chief I clicked on your link and I got a Malware detection warning. It seems that web site has a redirection Malware site attached to it

Seems the issue is it is connected to coinurlredirection.com ???

Might be old news but I have just heard that EA is now going to charge people a fee if they want to play online with second hand games. Not sure exactly how it would work but an activation code is going to be needed.
