    I wouldnt use gamestop, those shitheads are out for money, not your DS. Once traded like 8 new games for 8 bucks. I hate them.

    No one knows if they do yet

    Good ole Phoenix...
    If you live near a GameCrazy (Hollywood Video) you will get $90 trade in for you Lite. Only the 5-12th are they running that special. That is where I'm heading tomorrow [​IMG]

    Ah what part of Canada are you from? It's more like $100 off except you have to add in a DS game with a trade in value of $8 or more.

    I know it sucks.

    If I get a DSi I'll just ship out my phat DS to someone in the USA and get them to ship back the DSi. It'd pay, trust me.

    EDIT: $100CA is $120USA. $70CA is $56USA.

    If you come over here you'd be richer than in Canada, with us having a really bad economy and all.

    But don't worry Obama will save the world soon! Hurray! He'll save the economy and give everyone a free DSi.

    1. No, you would have just as much money to your name, or less.
    2. Obama isn't a Jesus-like figure.

    Also, Canada does suck. iPhone came a year late, no netflix, hulu, slacker, pandora, shipping from the states, lack of tech, I.E. some laptops, cameras, MP3 players, headphones, etc.etc.

    First, Obama IS a Jesus-like figure... to black people and minorities who think they fall in the same category.

    Second, Canada doesn't suck per say... there just isn't as much to do there as in the U.S.

    Third, I wouldn't want to trade in a DS Lite for a DSi.

    I might just be retarded but if you think about exchange rates then yes you could get more money. Example:

    1 Canadian Dollar = .90 Something US Dollars

    After Economy Problems,

    1 US Dollar = .5 Canadian Dollars

    Thus meaning it would take less of your money to get US Money.

    I guess it evens out if you take into account that prices might rise in the US.

    But if a canadaien dollar is 70 cents US, you still have the same amount of money, just using a different system. It's like comparing miles to kilometers.

    Why go to GameCrazy for 90$ trade-in if you can go to GameStop for 70$ trade-in? I don't get it :S

    Or does that mean if you trade in your Lite you get a DSi + $90 ? If so, that's awesome.

    EDIT: ok well i understand it more now
    if you trade in your DSL, you get 70 dollars off a DSi purchase?

    No, you trade in your DSL and you pay only $70
