I Fancied looking for a new game and looked at CEX and to my surprise they had decent games from prices between £3 - £16

Could come in handy for some people and the prices are available in-store and on-line

That's it exactly what i done at got the cash :thumbsup:

It sort of sucks because i trade stuff in all the time for cash, then use the cash to buy similar stuff like games etc. But if you sell them too much the treat you as a trader and discount their advertised prices. When i bought a 360 i had about 30 old xbox games, i traded them all in so that bumped up what i had sold to them. They have some decent looking games pretty cheap for xbox, the stores are nice, but they should stop shafting people who trade regularly.

Where did you go?

Which store? i use them alot for trading in stuff and never got a discount

apart from the time when i traded in a PSP and the guy took all the extra accessories out which added a bit more cash on top of the voucher

LOL i am at the other end of the country

Thanks for the information mate

Leeds shop is bad

For the people who don't like going into the shops or are getting shafted by local rubbish trade-in/cash prices - you can buy online with free delivery (subject to them having stock available online), as well as sell to them online where you post it to them and get the trade in value shown online (so you know the exact price you're gonna get before going down there). I've bought a few 360 things online, like Live Vision camera for £16 delivered and Tomb Raider for £9 delivered a while back, and been happy as larry.

They are generally a bunch of arses instore though.

dont forget, gamestation price match CEX for trade in prices......

was that £146 for a trade in or cash?

Original Poster

Trade or it was around £120 odd for cash

worst store ever i bought a pda from there once and they said they would repair it in 3 days, it took them 2 and a half months

Forza 2 for £9.99 isn't bad...

Remember that all CEX shops are franchise's and are independent of each other.

The shop that i use in croydon, gives no no problems at all, nice bunch of people there.

Voted Hot.

Not bad at all Mate. Thanks a bunch. Voted hot!

I work for CeX. The only time we discount trade or buy-in's is if the customer is selling multiples of the same item or has done so in the past.

I dont think 'bad' is the right word....its is truely one of the worst places to visit ever, and the shop itself smells of urine..all the staff are geeks or just really bad mannered students who need to get out of their bedroom more.

Good find though - voted hot from me.

Purchased a phone from them a little while back. The first one the camera didn't work. Replaced it. Then I realised that the headphones (included says the box) were missing.

A little later I purchased an mp3 player. Got home and all the leads were missing. Couldn't use it. Took two weeks for the staff to find and send them out to me.

More recently, my wife purchased an MP3 player and guess what, no headphones.

:roll:

I know it's not all stores but some of the stores I've been too have staff who don't know what customer service is. the Southampton branch have a good team there from what I remember. :-D

Just my 2c. :whistling:

That;s good to know.
I've been to Bromley, Kingston, both London branches, and they've all let me down in one way or another.

Do they give you excuse like "we dont have cash - come back in a week?" when selling stuff to them?

D.

I have a question! the stuff you buy from them is not new is it ?

Not sure, but its definutly the same line I get in solihull and birmingham very often

I heard that a greater london store had all their staff fired. Can't remember which one it was?

Maybe they were mystery shopped?

Hmmmm. :whistling:

Same excuse at the leeds store all the time! :thinking:

PGR 2nd hand in Game for £4.97, FIFA 06 only £1.96.

I traded stuff with CEX in Hounslow & thought they were a joke, not very helpful & even tried to sell me a copy of Zelda on the Wii (boxless) for the same price as with a box. Jokers, I certainly wouldn't go back there.

The Bristol shop's really well run.
Staff always friendly and laid back (and an all emo/goth staff clothing policy).
No problem printing out a till receipt of how much they'd trade stuff for so I could take it to Gamestation if I was after a new release.
At least you can always know what you're going to get for a trade and if it's worth it from the website beforehand and if what you want is in stock.
Only traded games, with bigger electrcal stuff you never know why it's been traded in in the first place/how reliable it is.

better off using ebay. got burnout 3 for xbox dirt cheap... my old fav game

u mean they were going to give u less money? they tried this with me (edinburgh store) until i told them head office told me i can give u up to 9 items of one product. i usually do this after showing them one of the items first

The staff in the Liverpool shop make me laugh my head off every time I go in there....not in a good way though. They are always doing little comedy sketches and talking "gangsta" as if they are trying to impress some girlies, thing is though theres never any girls in the shop !!

Some decent games there, think i will pick up Prey for £5 and Live arcade unplugged for £4.

I second that-Wolverhampton Cex are a good bunch of people-always seem to want to offer good customer service rather than follow a company policy.

In contrast, i bought 2x games from Gamestation and neither worked, they said i could "look around and swap them for different games" (as they didnt have anymore copies of the games). I said no thanks and demanded a refund.

Thanks gotta get a pgr

Central or Church Street?

Got £26 cash off them yesterday for Resident Evil on the Wii. Only paid £21 on eBay so I was made up.

Only problem was had to visit them 3 times before they had any cash in! They couldn't even put the money on my bank card!
