    INFORMATION ON BUYING PREOWNED CONSOLES FROM GAMESTATION:

    As the console you will be buying from any on the above list is preowned you are entitled to check the condition of the console and see it working instore before you buy it, every store should have a TV screen behind the checkout where the staff can quickly plug the console in and test a game on the console.

    You get a one year warranty with any preowned console you buy so the console can be returned instore at any point throughout the warranty and either sent off for repair (if after 28 days from buying the console) or replaced instore if within the 28 day period (I suggest if you find the slightest thing wrong with the console within the 28 day period that you return it for a replacement or for a full refund - this is your statutory right)

    In my experience though if I have ever had a problem with a console with the year warranty and after the 28 day period the store have replaced it instore or given me a full refund (This is the managers descretion mind but you could argue and usually get the console swapped anyway)

    Limited Edition consoles:

    I asked at Gamestation today if Limited Edition consoles would be reduced and I was told that more than likely as the company would want them sold, so I am guessing that you could expect about £20+ off a Limited Edition console.
    I most cases with the XBox 360 Limited Edition consoles you get 2 controllers so they are good value for money.

    Extras:

    Make sure to ask about extras, when you buy a console from Game or Gamestation 99% of the time there is a promotion where you can buy a game, gamer points or accessories cheaper when bought with the console (for example recently I bought a preowned console and got SSX Limited Edition on XBox 360 for an extra £25)


    Best Deals:

    In my personal opinion the best deals from the list above is:

    The Limited Edition Mario Wii Console (especially if it is complete) as they are quite rare now and perfect for collectors.

    *The Mario and Sonic London Olympics 2012 Blue console with Game as the game retails at £29.99 on its own and its a great game.

    PSP Base console at £29.99 as although there is no longer games made for these PSP's there is a massive catalogue of second hand games for this and they are dirt cheap so you will be entertained for a mammouth time.

    ...and finally the 160GB PS3 consoles at £129.99, alot of machine for not alot of money.


    *PLEASE NOTE: The Blue Wii console is not backwards compatible so cannot play Gamecube discs.

    UPDATE: We are now able to confirm the Ds Lite and DSI Console prices, with ths DS Lite's being £34.99, the DSI's at £49.99 and the DSI XL's at £79.99, all now added to the thread description.

    Also the 3DS console prices have been added to the description at £115.

    £20 for a DS? I'm totally going for it, even if it's the ugly fat one. Worth it for Pokémon alone which I haven't played for years (since Gold on Gameboy Colour).

    majority are unlikely to even be pre-owned - GAME & GameStation will shortly be closing down.
    clearing out brand new stock, as 'preowned' because they dont have to pay the maunfacturers, or some loophole like that and they have no funds to buy new games so essentially, use any credit you have with them or gamestation ASAP.

    Damn that's hot but it will be surprising if they have one.

    Is £129.99 cheap for an xbox 250gb. I am sure these have been £149.99 or £159.99 brand new in Morrisons of late?

    Sorry if this is irrelevant to the post but does anyone know the trade in price for a 3DS? I might pop down tomorrow. Do they still have the Vita trade in deal on??

    Honestly my local Ganestation store has loads of the PS3s and XBOX's.

    There will be literally thousands of these out there.

    What would be hard to find is the red Wiis.

    Personally I'd never buy second hand console hardware. Have had so many problems with brand new hardware that I dread to think what buying second hand must be like :L

    And only £0.99 for a PS Vita if someone traded it in !

    Use up any gift vouchers too because if things turn bad they will be worthless
