    [​IMG] Sony must have been really pissed when they saw that add. But if you read the fine print I don't think many people will be using this.

    That is the worst deal I have ever seen.

    Any particular reason you want that as a wallpaper? Fanboy much?

    Looks like Sony isn't the favourite anymore [​IMG] Not that they every really *have* been, but still...

    It's kind of weird that they put the PSP under the 'old' section, considering it is still fairly new... maybe Nintendo paid EB Games to do so [​IMG]

    Regards.

    What makes me laugh the most is their offering $60 for the DS phat and only $40 more for the psp. It looks like this is the end of the road for the psp.

    I agree with you on the fine print! NOONE will use this. Who has BRAND-NEW DS, PSP, or GBAs?? and even so how is willing to let them go at so cheap a price when ebay will get you much more! This is just a marketing scheme no more no less.

    Just imagine this same ad by Ford with the say mustang on top and a Ferrari trade in on the bottom? Silly?. Will Ferrari get mad if an owner is willing to give the car up for say $10,000? Will the add make the mustang a better car?

    Now I'm not saying that the DS lite is in the mustang category and the PSP on the Ferrari but you get the point that this is just a silly ad! READ the SMALL PRINT.

    What they mean by previously played systems excluded was that you can't purchase one of their used DS Lites

    The fine print is not saying YOUR trade-in has to be new, but that the credit only applies to BUYING NEW DSLITEs. Of course, you're still right that it's a rip off because you can get a little more on eBay maybe 50% more. On that note, don't ever sell your used games to Gamestop!!!!!

    I believe they mean you can't use your PSP/DS Phat or whatever to get $60 off a second hand DS Lite, and the offer is only valid when buying a new DS Lite.

    EDIT: Uh, yeah, what he said ^ Should read the whole thread before replying [​IMG]

    Is this still valid? I'll trade my psp that been sitting around for a $100 off a new lite.
