WEEKEND UPDATE: Wow, what an amazing turnout for the trade in offer for one free game. Check out the Tech Yeah community forum to read the update about the promotion. A copy of it is below for easy reference:
Today, our unprecedented used game offer kicked off and attracted incredible responses at all our stores in Canada. This offer invited customers to trade-in any one game in exchange for a new copy of Assassin’s Creed IV, Battlefield 4 or Call of Duty: Ghosts. Boxing Day-like crowds came out in droves and walked away with a new game.
The response from customers has been amazing and far exceeded our expectations. With such a hot offer, our limited quantities ran out rapidly on day one resulting in some stores now being out of stock.
We want to also take a moment to thank Canadian gamers for visiting our stores and making our used games promotion a tremendous success!
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 8 UPDATE: There's been a lot of excitement about this trade in offer since this post was shared, including scores of Tweets. Some popular feedback worth noting:
- It's a limited time offer

This just in: The stores excluded from the program are:

Also, here's the official fine print on the program with a few comments from me in brackets:
Trade-in one game and get your choice of Assassin’s Creed 4, Battlefield 4, or Call of Duty Ghosts*
Original posting today:
You may have read about an unbelieveable trade-in offer available at Future Shop this weekend through Monday, November 11, 2013. It's true. Beginning Saturday, November 9 until close of business on Monday, November 11, 2013, Future Shop stores across the country are offering customer the opportunity to bring in one used game on a present generation console (Xbox 360, PS3, WiiU, Vita, 3DS) to trade for one his season's hottest titles*:
- Assassin's Creed IV
- Battlefield 4
- Call of Duty: Ghosts
*Trade must be for a present generation title. PS4, Xbox One and PC not included.
Here's how it works:
- Trade ANY one game on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, WiiU, PS Vita or Nintendo 3DS and get a FREE copy of Assassin's Creed IV, Battlefield 4 or Call of Duty: Ghosts (Xbox 360, PS3 WiiU versions only, excludes next generation consoles - PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, plus PC. Regular $59.99 versions only).
- That's right, bring-in any game title on the present-gen console or handheld and you get one of three of the holiday's hottest titles for free. Limit one title per customer per day - games must include cases - and no duplicates accepted.
- Of course there some legal limitations in some markets. Future Shop stores in Nanaimo, Kelowna,
Manitoba, Woodbridge (Vaughan), Markham and Richmond Hill are excluded due to local trade in laws.

Fight on behalf of a crippled nation struggling to survive in Call of Duty: Ghosts. The global balance of power is irrevocably changed after a devastating event and the nation's economy and government are destroyed. The once-powerful military tries to prevent a total collapse, and remnants of the nation's Special Operations forces, known only as "Ghosts," lead the fight against a new superpower.
Take no quarter, for fortune favours the bold in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag for Xbox 360. It's 1715, and pirates rule the Caribbean.

Anything goes in this wide world of grand adventure, mystery, and pirate plunder. Stations, lads. Hoist the Black Flag.
