Don't have a PSP or DS? You should totally go buy one.


Alright, so I'm going to make this quick and dirty. I dropped by my local EBGames today, thinking to pre-order Gears of War 3 so I could send a beta code out to a friend. No dice, since the codes are already all gone, but I figured that since I was there, I'd browse.

Now, I've had a PSP for a while. But my little brother's been bugging me for one, and I've been refusing because I've got the impulse control of a child already, and recklessly spending for one is generally my limit.

However, EBGames has on, right now, the greatest freaking deal of all time.

Pick up 2 used games worth $19.99 or more, and you get $50 off the console. Which, in layman's terms, means that if you pick up two games, the cost for the following consoles is:

Used PSP 1000 : $29.99
Used PSP 3000 : $39.99
Used PSP Go : $99.99 (yeah, fuck that noise)

Used Nintendo DS-lite : $49.99

I don't know what the price for a used DSi or DSi XL is, but take $50 off that and you've got your price. Honestly, I couldn't pass it up. My brother is now the proud owner of a used PSP 3000 as well as Phantom Brave. Once I used my EBGames Edge card on top of that, the whole package wound up coming to, like, ninety bucks tops.

Now, I don't know if this just applies to Canada. I picked this package up in a Toronto EBGames, so it might not even apply to GameStop stores and may be an EBGames brand-specific deal, but if you've been on the fence about portable gaming, this is your opportunity to give it a shot at a dirt cheap price.

Now if you'll excuse me, I've got a used copy of Duodecim to go play.

My name is meteorscrap.

Occasionally I'll post random thoughts and musings here which are too long, too detailed, or otherwise don't fit in the comments section. Given the length of some of the stuff I've left as a comment, you can well imagine what I consider long.

Do you like words? 'cause I got a lot for you.
