Default PS3 Slim for $50!.....Sorta

Found this deal for us canadian folk,not sure if it applies in the states as well...

Trade in your 60/80gig ps3 + 2 games and get the slim for $50. I'd say if they take ones that are NOT BC its worth it, otherwise no. I'm gonig to try and trade in my non BC one and see if it works. Since I imported all my RB1 songs into RB2, thats one game right there!

It's not worth if it's limited to BC models. Everyone I've talked to retail wise has stated the the BC systems sell for $400+ used because of how highly sought after they are. This is a prime example of Gamestop screwing over the consumer one more time. If the trade was for any model of ps3 plus 2 games then sure, but limiting it to the BC models AND requiring 2 games is ridiculous.

is there any earthly reason other than size issues to trade in an older PS3 for a new slim one?
