    Wii trade in price = £40
    games = 50p-£10 depending on game
    Accessories = £5 max

    Lets not be hasty here.

    LucasArt licenced lightsabre Wiimote hoobajoob, or general swordesque Wiimote disguise?


    If it's a lucasart one... I call dibs. [Even though I don't really use my Wii anymore...]

    I thought they stopped doing that?

    Or at least changed it so they only compare prices with certain places that are miles away, and therefore can't be used, or places they know are the same price/more expensive.

    Maybe it's an Essex thing... We have all 3 close to each other and they claim they only price match with people on their list. [Like Tesco/WH Smiths/Argos... all the places that charge the full RRP]

    Plus, it has to be the exact same thing, including any bonus crap they bundle.

    But, considering they all charge the most they can, which is the RRP, there's no point.


    And Amazon/play will always be cheaper.

    I've not used CEX stores (none anywhere near here) but have sold stuff via their web site before - prices comparable to a "reasonable" eBay sale, in my experience. Game under-pay imho.

    For what they are, they over charge.

    A reasonable price for second hand things should be about half what it is new. Not a couple of £'s less.

    Maybe that is why they give such a good trade-in price?!

    Modern Warfare 3 is £42 second hand in CEX.

    It's only £40 new in Game.


    Rip. Off.

    That's buying, and I will admit, I don't often buy from them (although DVD boxsets are reasonably priced, I find). Gareth was asking about selling. No reason the company you buy second-hand stuff from should be the same one you sell it to.
