My supermarket has been selling games for decades...I don't understand your point...the Walmart higher-ups clearly know that people relentlessly and repeatedly buy this shit Wink

That trade-ins for PS4 deal actually sounds pretty good. I have a lot of clutter in my gaming collection.

This.

The article wasn't even about the promotion of Mountain Dew and Doritos for another CoD. It's just mentioning Wal-Mart will have a special event and notes people can get more credit for selling their games for CoD. Like Longo asked, what am I supposed to get upset about?
