In less than 24 hours, the hugely anticipated sequel to Red Dead Redemption will finally gallop onto store shelves. The official RRP is somewhere in the region of $99 - but there's a way to snap up the full game on PS4 or Xbox One for just $29. Here are the details!

EB Games is offering another tasty trade-in deal for Rockstar Games' cowboy simulator, Red Dead Redemption 2. If you hand over two used games with a minimum trade-in value of $10 each, EB Games will give you Red Dead Redemption 2 for 29 bucks. Depending on which games you trade in, this works out to a saving of up to $50.

The list of eligible games is pretty comprehensive and should include anything released over the past 12 months or so. Here's a small selection of games that are expected to qualify, courtesy of the guys at OzBargain:

  • Arms
  • Assassins Creed Origins
  • COD Ghosts
  • COD WW2
  • Dead Rising 4
  • Destiny 2
  • Far Cry 5
  • Final Fantasy XV
  • Forza Horizon 3
  • GTA5
  • Horizon Zero Dawn
  • Far Cry 4
  • FIFA 18
  • For Honor
  • The Last Guardian
  • Minecraft: PS4 Edition
  • Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
  • Metro: Redux
  • NHL 15
  • No Man's Sky
  • Uncharted Lost Legacy
  • Wolfenstein 2

If you don't own any of the games above, simply call up EB Games and list the games you do own to find out what they're worth. According to EB Games there are over 700 second-hand titles that qualify.

Naturally, this deal is only worth considering if you have games at the lower end of the trade-in scale. (Brand new releases can fetch up to $30 a pop, for example.) Definitely check the trade-in value before you make the swap.

With that said, if you have a few duds lying around (or games you're not likely to ever play again), this is a great way to score RDR2 on the cheap. The deal ends on November 1 so we suggest getting it this weekend (which we know you're all going to do anyway.)

Alternatively, Amazon Australia has it for $62. If you want to hold onto your existing games collection this is probably the best price you're going to get locally. The deal also includes free delivery.

    I went into EBs to trade in a bunch of games for RDR2. Due to this deal and the extra 25% you get from trading to a preorder, I ended up with RDR2, Diablo 3, Switch, Ride 3 and Big Bash Boom all paid for. Sweet.

    I've got a spare MGS:TPP disk as it was games with gold recently... just need to buy one of those other trade in games on the cheap for a bargain!

      Hunt our No Mans Sky in the 2nd hand stores. They seem to have plenty of copies. From memory they werent more than about a tenner from CEX.

      I'm probably that and GTAV myself. Got NMS when my PC was down (dont play PS4 version any more, back on PC), and flatmate has GTAV if I ever want to play it.

        Dang BF1 is gwg so I've now got 2 games spare but the deal ended on the 1st!

    Ahh ill be getting a One X bundle from JB-Hifi so I dont need eb games.

    Selling at a loss like this really screws any smaller retailers

    Head on over to their website and check the preowned price for whatever game you are considering trading. Divide the preowned price by 4 and that'll be roughly the trade in value

      Which makes trading games not a good deal unless you particularly hate the games you are trading

        Or get them free on gwg on Xbox! I've got 2 discs now that I can trade in!

    I took in CoD: Ghosts, Destiny 2 and Final Fantasy XV and the only one that qualified was Ghosts... what the actual fuck
