UK video game shop has launched an online marketplace on which third-parties can sell their products.

GAME Marketplace sells new and preowned games as well as other game-related items, such as PC hardware, toys, memorabilia, books and clothes.

There are over 50,000 products from suppliers including Yellow Bulldog, Rarewaves, Bull Shirt, Venom and Fierce PC, GAME said.

A cursory glance at GAME Marketplace shows hubs for Star Wars, Marvel and Disney products, as well as tabs for T-shirts and graphic novels.

But further down are more buying choices, including one from Rarewaves, which is selling Destiny's shooter for just under £30. GAME has it listed for £49.99.

It's a similar system to that used by Amazon, which also offers more buying choices from a variety of third-parties.
