CeX Only deal in pre-owned products which are purchased from customers for either cash or store credit. Having worked for Cex a few years ago while at uni they only purchase products with cash in the tills which are skimmed off to the safe every few hours and banked every few days once it reachs a certain target often several thousand depending on sales. When customers are told they cannot buy cash items at the moment this is true the till staff cannot, its not to say the store has no cash!

That's a take home and try experience which you can still do now. Game booths were an in-store try and buy.

Just been up town now on a doomed quest to get some other bits and bobs, and the GAME store here is closed - doors locked and handwritten signs up on the door.

The overall tone of that is 'there's pretty much no circumstance where we will give out any money, but if you're still stupid enough, you can still shop with us'.

You have to laugh at that "GAME - You can't lose" banner on their Farcebook page. Bit rich considering the sods won't honour their gamecards or loyalty cards.

It has been said, thus it is true.

Watched a clip on Sky last night and they were outside a GAME store. Barriers were pulled down there, had written sign in the door saying 'closed'. They said they managed to chat to a staff member earlier who said they were told to close the shop, and to say nothing to anyone about why.

Which is silly... Because we all know what's going on.

GAME/Gamestation are closing. [Gamestation was pretty decent.]
Places like ASDA/Tesco/whatever usually sell at RRP with really bad bundles [in my experience]
Amazon and Play... Well, they're good on price, but I'm not sure I trust them with a £XXX console. [YOOOOODEEEEEEEEEL!]
