Hey everyone

To all the UK people, do you trade your games in at places like Gamestation and Game?

Yesterday i traded in NBA Street Homecourt and Colin Mccrae DiRT for the 360, as i have completed both and done all the achievements bar one for DiRT and didn't see the need to keep them, and i got 50 for them together. Considering i paid 18 for Homecourt brand new and paid 30 for DiRT brand new i got a great deal!

What deals have you guys got on your games?

I bought some third-party controller from Gamestation for 2 pounds, a few days ago my mum bought 3 wireless controllers for reasons I don't know, and I managed to trade the controller back in for 6 quid, which ain't bad really.

I also traded in my gamecube and 13 games in 2 months ago for 120 quid, which isn't bad considering you can buy a gamecube from 30 quid preowned and they have a 4 games for 20 quid offer down there as well. Sometimes I wonder how they manage to stay in business when they buy for more than they sell :p

I think GameStation give you slightly more credit than Game for instore trades. Both places completely rip you off though if you want cash for your games.

Also, I know Game do a little manual instore and there is also an online version on their website about their trade-in prices. It doesn't list all games though, just new games and popular games.

Tha's a damn great deal. But you didn't specify where you traded in the games... I've never had such a good deal from GAME or Gamestation though... :confused:

My G/F's son took a PSP, a Wii, a Crystal Xbox, all with a few games for each platform to GAME and got 329 trade in value, so he's getting a 360 elite.

I thought he got damn good deal. Can't remember what games though.

I got 25 trade in for Forza 2, which was pretty good cos I got it second hand anyway.

I remember trading in KOTOR at Gamestation for 1 more than I paid for it a couple of years ago.

my apologies, i traded them in at Gamestation!

i bought myself a Nintendo DS and Pokemon Pearl too as i traded in some old Xbox games and they gave me roughly 30 for them, so i only paid about 22 for the DS and Pokemon in cash :woop:

Just been to gamestation and traded in GRAW, TW06 and Superman Returns and got MotoGp 07 in return! Great deal i think considering how outdated the games are, and especially when they have sat on my shelf for 6 months without being used. :woop:

Thats not a bad deal really, at my local gamestation you can get first edition GRAW for 7.99, and Superman and TW06 in a 2 for 20 quid deal.

The gamestation near me is so stingy, they offered me 12 for gears of war whereas a shop close to it, called Discz (formerly Ross Records) gave me 20 for gears. Anybody got a Discz near them? cant beat their trade in values
