Has anyone tested this out and does it work? Considering cex trade in for alot better then gamestation then surely itss false advertising if they don't. I have never had the need to trade in games at gamestation but I want to trade in my wii collection and would get more at cex than gamestation.

Yea, I've used it loads before, but they need proof from whoever - so a print out from them, or something like that. Game will never give me printouts, but I often get Gamestation to beat Blockbuster / Chips prices.

They beat each item by £1... sometimes they try and say it's by £1 overall, but just say you'll trade each item in separately then... :thumbsup:

Will they take a printout from the CEX website?

Only I don't have one near me.

You have to have the store within 2 miles, so no, if you don't have a CEX near you, they wouldn't beat it.

well my cex is right opposite gamestation so they cant say its too far away. I'll have to give them a ring to ask as I know they probably wont honour it with the way gamestation is.

Cex trade in a wii console without a game for £128 (ie without wii sports). I've worked out all my items would trade for £238 at cex , so lets put gamestation to the test

Just go onto the CEX website, and go to the Sell to CEX section.

Add all your items to your selling backet, and then print out.

Take that to Gamestation, and you should have no problems...

Let us know how you get on :thumbsup:

i have used this in regards to GAME and gamestation, it always works but you need a print out

Tried it last week but they wouldn't accept it because they sold the games I was trading in for less than what CeX were buying them for. Probably didn't help that I was being served by the manager though.

I had a major falling out with gamestation over their 'won't be beaten on trade in's'. so much so i wont buy from them anymore.

Well I took the list to the store to check and was told that it should be ok to trade in at that price. Though I wasn't able to test it out as my girlfriends dad has had a change of mind and decided to buy it off me, which is better as that means I don't have to be stuck with selling it to gamestation, but at least I know I can do a trade in match as long as i have a print off.

Gamestation used to be great till they were bought out

I remember trading it Mario Kart on DS for £20 as I had 2 of them, then a week later tried to sell my other and was offered 50p saying that was how much its worth now.

And like 10p per dvd!

I just don't like the attitude of the staff i'm come across. Game are just as bad for trade ins but at least the staff in there i've come across have been helpful and friendly. Not started an argument with you and basically called you stupid :x

In my experience its mainly the other way around, Did come across one fantastic game store but the rest were either very rude or no help at all.

The ones in Gamestation are willing to chat to you and give you real advice and talk about their fave games console and what hdtv they use and say hello if they see you up town.

With game last year bought a PS2, it was broken and they refused a refund, phoned CS who contacted the store and when I went in the manager gave me loads of abuse for getting her and her staff in trouble and shouted at top of her voice, and customers were looking at her and a few left the store looking disgusted.

I was accused of trying to scam them, and just wanting to get the staff into trouble

Another store I asked the assistant manager who had been working there at least 7 years and started as an advisor what was the best console to get, ps2 or xbox(was a few years ago) and she said "why are you asking me, do I look like the sort of person who plays games" and walks off huffing.

Well when i was living in England the Gamestation Store i always went to in Woking Surrey has a manager called Mark and hes a complete ****ing a hole!Seriously this guy made my blood boil! Everytime i went to buy something i saw it cheaper he always argued with me and he said that 'We wont be beaten on price' He said they dont do that. But i insisted and i even picked up a DVD case with it being said on it and he said oh well i'll let you do it this one time, I was like wtf!? I seriously hated that guy!
