I prefer Game personally as they match and beat the price from CEX and tend to be quicker with testing.

Which xbox one is it btw?
#2
if you go to grainger games they will beat any price offered from cex and game
#3
Game all the time imo I only venture into CEX lately to trade in DVD and PC games (something Game don't do)
#5
While I tend not to trade in very often, when I do it'll usually be with GAME, unless there's a specific reason not to (such as if GAME won't accept it, for example due to being an old format) - they'll beat any price offered by CeX (by £1 for software, or 5% for hardware) and I actually find their store credit useful.

Yup, check cex prices then go to Game.

I usually sell on forums as I keep my consoles in good condition and the next owner can benefit without paying over the odds.

my local Grainger told me they no longer price match, i wonder if its branch specific.

Game from me too.
#11

Cex always beat any price offered by Game for me - and I trade a lot in. If you get on with the staff they will always give you the best price they can, and are less fussy than Game. Whilst Game say they'll price match, this isn't entirely true - I've been refused a few times just because they said their price was too far off Cex's. I've traded a few bits into Game in the past though and I will say that at least the stores are a bit less grubby!

If for some reason you have no photo I.D which my local game require then CEX is easier to trade in, no ID required.
#15
game, just a more pleasant experience overall,do price match for best price jobs a good one.

Having worked in CEX, can confirm you need ID to trade in there too. An account needs to be set up and ID of some sort provided.

More profitable to sell on gumtree for cash on collection.
#18
Everyone I know that trades uses Grainger

Yeah meant to say photo id, I used a bank card at the time

If going for credit, I wouldnt touch Game.

Their prices are laughable, only when they have an actual good sale (usually twice a year Black Friday/Christmas).

CEX will get most AA Game releases on the day, if not before (Pre-Release Media category).

Im not sure who is buying their new releases from Game for £55 - even with credit.

CEX no longer price match as that initiative has been removed from store.

However I concur with the above, if selling a mainstream console, I would simply sell on FaceBook Sell Pages, Gumtree, or even eBay with enough profit to cover their dirty fees.

Offer cash on collection in the description and a telephone number "for questions" and you may get someone offering cash on collection for a split of the fee.

Cex, purely because my Game store will not match them even though a Cex is nearby.

Plus my experience has been much worse with Game, staff always seem to p****d off and arrogant for some reason. At least at Cex I have a 50% chance of getting someone in a good mood X)
