UK-based retailer GAME are running what may be the first of a new breed of trade-in deals this week with Test Drive Unlimited 2, which launches on Friday. Those who pick up either the PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 version, both priced at £39.99, can redeem £35 of in-store credit if they trade it in before February 24th.
Effectively it’s a full-package (disc, box, manual) rental option, ideal for gamers who maybe want something to chew on before trading in and hunkering down on one of the month’s more prolific releases, including Bulletstorm and Killzone 3. It will be interesting to see how many units GAME are able to shift and if this promotion will be adopted by other outlets in future.
Note that buying a copy from GAME will also net you some exclusive goodies including a higher level cap and some sweet rides.
We’ll have our thoughts on TDU2 at midnight tonight.
