Tesco game trade-ins go nationwide
Friday 20-Aug-2010 10:45 AM Exchange games for in-store credit
Tesco has rolled its video game trade-in service nationwide after what must have been a successful trial back in February.
A number of print adverts are offering £12 for 2010 FIFA World Cup on PS3, £17 for Mario Kart Wii, £14 for Alan Wake on 360 and £19 for the 360 version of Red Dead Redemption.
The catch is that any money made from cashing in your old games can only be used in-store, but since 60 Tesco stores in the UK are now selling pre-owned games as well there's no reason you can't pick up some bargains.
This will probably rub the likes of THQ up the wrong way a bit. The publisher recently said it's looking to beat the pre-owned market with premium online content.http://www.computerandvideogames.com/article.php?id=261024
