GameStop: Trade in Battlefield 3 for Modern Warfare 3

GameStop UK is offering a trade-in deal so utterly ruthless it borders on trolling, allowing customers to trade in Battlefield 3 and receive rival shooter Modern Warfare 3 for practically nothing. All you need to drop is ninety-nine pence!

If you buy DICE's gorgeous looking shooter before October 27, then buy Modern Warfare 3 before November 7, you can send Battlefield 3 back to get your GameStop account refunded -- save for a meager £0.99 charge. 

This is even crazier when you consider that Activision bumped up the price of all Call of Duty games in the UK, giving them an RRP of £54.99. So, if you wanted to essentially rent Battlefield 3 and keep Modern Warfare 3, this is a shockingly good deal. 

I'd have sympathy for EA but I keep remembering its insistence on using online passes. So screw 'em.
