Good morning everyone! Hope another week of the offseason hasn't been grating and you've been having fun doing...well whatever it is you do when you aren't watching football. Day 2 of Fooch's vacation hasn't brought anything drastic yet, so I'll knock on wood and hope this calmness can continue.
So I'm dusting off the cobwebs from Madden 16 so we can take a look at some of the ratings for the coming season. I bring this up here because the time will come when I turn it in to GameStop and get whatever I can for it before I have to pay them to take it off my hands. I found out that the game is worth $16 in store credit if you trade it in now, down $4 from a month ago. I'm just passing the friendly word along to those of you who are thinking of getting rid of your copy. That price is going to keep going down, and I wouldn't be surprised if it's under $10 by mid April. If you've done all you can, turn it in and get your credit now. $16 is cheap, but that at least gives you a nice discount on a new game and Madden games will go to 50 cents before long. Prices may vary (I was in a Seattle mall getting my quote), but I figured I'd pass the word along.
