For those of you who don't know, Amazon.com has a trade in program for many things including used video games. Every day they pick a different game, for almost all recent consoles in the last 10 years, and offer a higher than normal trade-in value for it that comes close to what you could get if you sold it via ebay or some other direct channel. Amazon.com pays the shipping with a prepaid UPS or USPS label so there's no hassle at all for the end user. Just a few clicks and your done. Once they get the game and verify it you will be credited with an Amazon.com gift card to be used for anything on their site.

Anyways, the meat and potatoes below:

Today's offer is $18 for Metal Gear Solid 4 for the Playstation 3. New this game goes for around $25 and you can find a copy on ebay for less than $20 so the Amazon offer is quite nice. My copy has been sitting on a shelf collecting dust so I took advantage of this offer already this morning.

To each his own. I play games, not collect them. As fun as MGS4 was I could never see myself going through another play of it....maybe Chapter 4, but that's it.

Either way, these Amazon offers are good to watch for as you can get close to used market value for the games and have to put ZERO work into it to get it.

Using sales / clearance / store discounts you can game for nearly free (after putting in a little bit of money to get the first few games) if watch for good trade in deals. I got the beatles full band game pre-ordered for less than $90 out of pocket using Amazons trade in deal of the day and some clearance games.
