UK game trade-in price comparison site launches

Ex-GAME execs launch Trade In Detectives.

A new UK price comparison website has launched that could help you find the best place to trade in your games.

Trade In Detectives is the brainchild of two ex-GAME execs and the result of gamer frustration at having to shop around for the best trade-in deals.

Always go to the same high street store? You're probably not getting the most for your money, Trade In Detectives says.

"Trade in and Cash prices change on a daily basis and can be likened to the stock markets - so you are best shopping around and frequently reviewing the prices to get the best deals," a spokesperson explained.

"Most retailers will beat or match competitors trade in offers - but you need to do the research first yourself, and show them evidence... That's where we step in."

As an example, you can currently get anywhere from £9 to £17 for an Xbox 360 copy of Call of Duty 2: Black Ops - depending where you trade it in.

The site checks store credit and cash prices for high street and online retailers - handy if you use services like Amazon or Music Magpie. Bricks and mortar shops such as CEX and GAME are also covered.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. Read our policy.
