    CeX are what they are. Like many things (cash converters, Music Magpie etc) they're there for people's convenience. If you prefer to go to more trouble not to use them, then that's your prerogative.

    Seems like those 20 years in tech didn't include the ability to use a spelling/grammar checker.

    Your message genuinely made my laugh!

    Good look forgetting. He made Vizzizi seem interesting!

    Question all.

    On CEX's website it says they will buy GTAV ps3 off me for 36 cash.

    I presume that will be the same in store?

    After i have bought some hand sanitiser that's 35!!

    Yep...that GTA5 price has been up and down all over the place the last week though. The highest I saw it was 42 mid last week and the current 36 is the lowest I've seen. It has been 36 before and gone back up to 40. CEX to appear to modify their buy in prices very regularly.

    I kind of like CEX, there's something old school about it.

    I used to get some good bargains in CEX years ago before I switched to using amazon almost exclusively. Much preferred them to GAME and their trade-in prices were usually better too.

    As minging as they can be, at least they sell games. Without them it would be Game and not a lot else..

    My partner got Skyrim for me last week for a fiver because, in her words, the spotty guy with glasses who smelt like a "melted shoe" said she was cute...

    Jokingly said "great now I've got competition" but she assured me I'm a pair of Adidas while he's a 2.99 pair from Tesco.

    Still got the game for a low price so I might send her to get me games from now on.

    The correct terminology for said footwear is Tesco Tearaway Pumps! Thank me later. :)

    CEX isnt the worse place.. yes some games are overpriced but for older titles its a decent place to go and as jonsaan said not many places left on the high street selling game anymore.

    Got home only to find my Bioshock Infinite PS3 disc was a promo copy despite picking up a full retail box. They showed me the reverse which was fine but I hadn't realized it was a promo.

    Are the promo versions 100% complete? As in all the campaign etc...

    @BizarreK

    From experience of working in Gamestop for a few years (incidentally, fucking kill me if I ever have to work in an environment like that again) in both buying, selling and even receiving the (very) occasional promo copy from the distributors, yeah that should be the complete game.

    Yup, just different print on the disc.

    Can't sell them on though, so bear that in mind
    Except you clearly can if he's buying it from a second hand shop.

    Big difference in "can't sell them on" and "can't sell them on to someone who's fussy about the label on the disc", captain fucking say what you actually mean.
  • Deleted user 9 November 2013 17:27:22
    As does pretty much every other CD, DVD and game in existence if you look at the disc closely, but it (rightly) doesn't stop anyone.

    As I said, I worked my way through Uni in one of these shitehole shops, no one on either side of the till paid a blind bit of heed to bundle or promo copy "restrictions".

    Personally i'd be pissed if I found out they gave me the promo disc instead of the legit retail copy, it will be the full proper game though BizarreK

    Never noticed this, where about is this on a regular retail disc?
