    There is the nice offer where they give an extra tenner if you trade in 3 games

    Fucking hell. That's decent! Anyone know if they are stocking The Witcher 2 for consoles on Tuesday?

    @Trigger, Yes I was being ironic.

    @ SolidSCB, the mailshot they sent me said yes.

    warning, might be only 360, ps3, 3ds and vita games

    so leave your spectrum copies of Disco Dan and Hungry Horace at home

    That's interesting, as I've had copies of Portal 2, Rage and Far Cry 2 I've been meaning to trade for some time. Might see what Game will offer for the three.

    The problem is, there is so little stock and even with the enhanced trade in, its cheaper to buy games off the internet and keep what youve got.

    Ive been in a couple of times now with games in hand and come out without trading. Theres just no way im paying 45 sheets for unchartered vita even with trade ins.

    Yeah those offers are bullshit really. Price matching instantly goes out the window so the actual trade prices a fucking dreadful.

    FCUTA!

    Was thinking of rebuying modern warfare 3 for a bit of spec ops after I saw it for 25 in tescos and had to smile when I walked Game an hour later and saw it for 44.99.

    It actually has. Every second tier game that was reduced pre-administration has been jacked back up to 45 sheets so they are actually even worse value, amazingly.

    I still think they are going down. They've just been given some retail morphine for now.

    Nice. In sale I picked up deadly premonition, alpha protocol, Beatles rockband and guitar hero Metallica for two pound each. Just traded them for twenty for pound.

    Game and Gamestation offer little value compared to some of the price points out there. Pre-owned versions of games with no online pass for 2 quid cheaper than their new price, yet still managing to be 13 more expensive than the new copy at Tesco/Asda.

    It is virtually impossible for them to compete at that level.

    Went to Colchester GAME this morning intending to make use of the extra 10 trade-in deal, hoping there'd be something worth taking away with me. Got 36 for Arkham City and three bits of tat. Looked around and saw nothing much of interest--there's hardly any new games on the shelves and I weren't paying over-the-odds for pre-owned--until I found a solitary new copy of Skyrim for 25. That'll do.

    Got 1200 LIVE points as well. Had Skyrim not been there I'd have just spent the whole lot on points.

    If Game Group are making any improvements I doubt it's in staff morale. Our local paper reported that all jobs had been saved (two out of three stores closed) but there's no sign of those stores re-opening, so unless they're asking those people to all work in the one remaining Game outlet (you know, the shop that was actually the worst of the three) or relocate, I can't see what they're doing.

    I got the opposite e-mail, GAME telling me to switch to Gamestation; odd thing is, though, apparently they've switched me from Cirencester to Swindon, despite me living in Gloucester. Admittedly, Gamestation is the remaining store in Gloucester, too, but they could have at least looked at what was nearest to my registered address.

    Personally, I think they should have taken the opportunity to switch to a "GAME Group" card that is usable in either store; that way, if they decide to rebrand completely to one or the other, they don't have to faff around afterwards.

    Gamestation fail to deliver a game next day delivery. Four days later they continue to do so, and don't even reply to my emails.

    Last time I will ever use that website. I had points to use which I had to use online, since it also seemed impossible for them to issue me with a new card despite requesting it three times.

    The GAME concession stores inside Comet might have re-opened. The one on the peel centre in stockport has. Spoke to a guy who works there and he said it had re opened about 3 weeks ago but because the company couldnt get any POS out nobody knew it had re-opened.

    Im no fan of GAME but at least the guys who work in that store have a genuine interest in games at least!

    So I went to Game the other day to see if they had any trade in deals coming up for 3DS vs. 3DS XL. They said sure, 20 deposit then only 95 for the XL. Er, ok. That doesn't seem like much of a deal, that just seems like me trading in my 3DS.

    But anyway, I asked what they were going to do about transferring data/games from my old 3DS to the new one. The girl I was chatting to said that it just downloads to an SD card so stick it your XL and you'll be grand. No, says I, that won't work for painfully obvious reasons, you need to have them both in front of you, hooked up to wifi and to a system transfer. She was quite surprised and apologetic and spoke to the other monkey in the shop who was busy reading a magazine. He said nah, don't worry mate it all downloads to the SD card, just stick it in the XL and you're grand - and anyway you can just redownload everything from your nintendo account. NO, SERIOUSLY GAME STAFF - You need to have them both in front of you! And by the way nintendo account? What the ACTUAL fuck? Again, the girl was quite "urk, that's a spanner in the works... we really should get something sorted for this." So now the most senior monkey shows up and the story repeats again. Again, the girl looks a little concerned and the guys look at me like I've grown an extra head. It was then that the newly appeared senior monkey says "Have you visited nintendo.com? It will tell you all you need to know!"

    At this point I felt had no choice but to slaughter every member of staff present at the time and raze the store to the very ground.

    I wouldn't convict you, mate. Get me on the Jury and you'll be fine :)
