Best Buy Offering Incentives Against PS3 Trade-Ins
Best Buy has developed a unique strategy in order to avoid a deluge of customers trading in their current PS3s for the new PS3 Slim- the chain is offering both a free game and a price match, in lieu of the trade-in.
According to the gaming site Kotaku, which cited an internal company memo, the offer is not being advertised and will only apply to customers who enter the store and ask specifically for a trade-in. The games offered as part of the deal are Infamous, MLB 09 The Show and Killzone 2.
The PS3 Slim is scheduled for a Sept. 1 release, but has been seen in stores nationwide a few days early.
