You are pretty much guaranteed to get a better price selling on eBay than any in-store trade in.

I have quite a few old games that I would like to sell but I can never find anywhere that gives me more than $10 even if the game is relatively new. eBay is definitely the way to go or you could find a friend who would be willing to buy it for a little under store price.

I prefer Amazon over Ebay. I wish I had always sold and bought games on Amazon because you get so much more for less.

For a quick and dirty trade in, I heard that Blockbusters give pretty good credit for most games...

For the best cash value: Craigslist.

I think someone mentioned criagslist and I would agree with that. You could sell a bundle to someone in your area at a reasonable price.

Craigslist and eBay are always good. If you wanna go to a store though, avoid chains like Hastings and GameStop, as they give you the worst values. Tend to go to LOCAL game stores, as they'll always give you the best deals.

I agree it looks like eBay is the only place you can get how much you want for it.

Blockbuster had REALY good prices, but with them flirting with bankrupcy their trade in prices have gone down the crapper.

i used to do gamestop until i realized how dumb of me that was.
now i just keep games, or sell them to people if i really don't like the game.
that way u get cash and more than what gamestop would give u.

I use ebay, craigslist, and occasionaly when I can beat their system, Gamestop.

(Ex: their special trade in 6 games get 40% more, trade in 6 games each worth a trade in of $25 + 10% for having their edge card and that is $225 in credit ($37.50 each... not bad for a game that I usually get for $40 off ebay or amazon)

amazing to trade games on.
It works like this; you offer your games on the site as either disc only, disc + Maunal, or Full package and you get a que in line and hell you might even be the first person sometimes depending on the number of people that are also requesting that game and each game is assigned a certain number of points. Once you get a match on a game you can then send out your game to that person (their adress is revealed to you after you get a match with them) and you send it off, they give you either positive, neutral or negative feedback depending on what condition the game is in, and you get your points for the game which you can then redeem for other games it is sweeeeet. and if you have more questions go to the site and read about how it works and stuff.
and if your feeling extra generous when you sign up in the refferrer section... please put mah name down if you are feeling nice, it will only take a sec :woop:

Couldn't agree more, Goozex is the way to go if you want to get the most for your used games. But if everything else fails you can always put them up on Ebay for a quick buck. Stay away from GameStop.

Goozex has always been quality, especially when I used it. Sometimes the wait times are a little long, but the points are always in your "bank" or whatever.

A HUGE DISCLAIMER: If you are going to use craigslist, only offer for local pickup. The scammers on that site are ridiculous in numbers. I had two contact me to buy a 360 in a matter of days. They offered $100 the listing price to send it to NJ and Africa. Needless to say, they tried to fake a PayPal "confirmation" site. If I didn't know how PayPal worked, I would have gotten screwed and been $200.00 lighter.

I would definitely avoid gamestop, my friend always trades in his games there and it always takes between 4-6 games just to get 1 new one, not a very good deal if you ask me.
