    Trade-in condition's a fucking lottery though; the games I got Friday range from near mint to looking like a tiger mauled them. I mean, the box for FEAR is scratched to fuck and the cover's stained, for fuck's sake! At least Gamestation run them all through the scratch remover...

    By the way - would CEX take my US Marvel Ultimate Alliance and guitar bundle version GH II? Don't want to use Fleabay.

    Gamestation for me generally for trade ins, Asda for new if just buying. I was a manager for Game and I can tell you now, the prices were and still are a rip off. The preowned pricing is a joke and they no longer do a returns policy unless faulty.
    Won't set foot in one now.

    I use eBay, Amazon, and Play more and more these days. However my local Blockbuster in North London has former a Gamestation concession which is good. The guys who work there generally know what they're talking about, the used console prices and bundles aren't bad, and if you scour the used game section there is usually at least one bargin. Also I tend to buy console accesories from there but the new game prices aren't paticularly competitive.

    I price match the trade-ins at Gamestation with CeX so I get great prices, I just have to deal with the utter idiots at Weston Favell [Gamestation]. Got to love being questioned on why I'm buying 2 x 4200 Microsoft Points and their reasoning for not allowing anyone to buy more than one of any one item - apparently because they're against profiteering.

    Game Group are now a charity/non-profit organisation?

    They don't let you buy more than one of anything? When I worked for GAME I often sold people about five points cards at a time :D

    Anyone know how much i'll get for the Far cry 2 collectors edition on 360? My save file corrupted and I CBA to start again.

    Any one of the 3 stores will do :)

    So I see you can no longer directly call up Game or Gamestation stores. You just get a generic Customer Service recorded message.

    They do still have phones that you can call, so if you already have the number you can still phone the individual shop

    Apparently Gamestation is the 25th best retailer in the UK. Maybe I'm in the minority, but this surprises me massively. They're not rude or anything usually, but in the top 25 best? Hmm...

    They are usually pretty good when I go in. Kind of a halfway house between the scripted drone in game and the minging plebs in CEX, so they seem professional and occsionally know what they are talking about.

    Gamestation wins. No question. Blockbuster are fucking awful second hand peddling gits. So are GAME.
