Video games are commonly among the holidays’ most asked for must-haves, holding value for Canadians and used gaming retailers. Future Shop has announced an unprecedented used gaming buy-back offers, as well as deeply discounted used games among 10 of the most exciting titles of the year.
Effective today through December 24, 2011, Canadians will receive $50 from Future Shop in store credit in the form of a gift card this season in exchange for any one of the following three heralded titles:
• Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (PS3, Xbox 360)
• Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (PS3, Xbox 360)
• Unchartered 3: Drake’s Deception (PS3)
This is incredible value considering the above games retail new at $59.99 each. The $50 trade-in for the above used titles can be used for any product or services sold at the Future Shop stores across Canada or online excluding stores in Vaughan, Markham, Winnipeg, Kelowna and Nanaimo. Stores in Calgary provide a video game credit due to local licensing restrictions.
Additionally, those seeking relief on their pocketbooks this holiday will find considerable savings among 10 used gaming titles, considered among the top games of 2011:

Future Shop’s Used Gaming has its perks for Canadians who trade-in their used games towards credit to spend on anything sold at Future Shop. Those who buy the used games receive value, savings and peace of mind knowing each game sold has been tested for quality. Here are five reasons why Canadians love the experience at Future Shop’s Used Gaming department:
• Zero confusion of what is new or used – Used games are clearly marked with big, bold stickers so Canadians know the difference between used and new
• Big savings – With new games on Future Shop shelves, the used game, if available, will be placed beside it for comparative shopping. In some cases, Canadians can save 50 per cent off the retail price – see above examples
• More money – By monitoring the entire used gaming market in Canada, Future Shop ensures they provide the highest trade-in values. The values are in the form of in-store credit to use towards anything sold in store or online at Future Shop.
• Quality control – Every game traded-in or purchased through Future Shop goes through rigorous review at a central facility, including testing through a state-of-art machinery. All used games for sale are guaranteed to work
• Like new condition – After Future Shop reviews every used game traded-in, it is packaged in its appropriate jewel case with manuals, then shrink-wrapped and stickered, giving it a “like-new” look and feel
