Think the deal will be at GAME also, if you have one of them near. Hope this helps.

Hope it's at game too. Will off load some of te fire sale titles to them.

It takes me to some weird affiliate site and there is no mention of the deal you are referring to?

My two localish stores both closed too, good way off getting rid of worthless old games if you can find one that's open though

I can confirm its also at GAME

Its an in store deal James, not online.

I appreciate that Gabriel, I just wondered if there might be a link to confirm.

I've got one but its about 15 miles away, wouldnt want a wasted journey.

I shall give them a call though.

When they say any three games, are there any terms and conditions to that?

For-example, could I go and trade in three old pre-owned PS2 sports games and get their value plus £10 on top of that?

If so, what is to stop people from just buying GameStation's and Game's old stock and trading it back to them?

I uploaded a pic with the post, fairly new to posting on here though so not 100% sure if you can see it?

Also is it cash or credit?

It is on (Xbox360, PS3,Wii,Ds,3DS, and vita) as far as I can see.

Assume it's PS3/Wii/Xbox360/DS/3DS/Vita titles so this gen really but yeh if you've got three copies of Fifa 08 it'll probably work, just do it though if you have no plans of returning the staff will lose their rag.

Absolutely nothing, but the amount you get backin in trade-in (including the £10) probably won't cover what you buy them for in the first place.

Credit

Seriously? Sure, I could trade in 3 x £1 games and be left with £13 in store credit.. And spend it on what? Everything is so overpriced, I'd be paying £10 over the odds anyway..

Not as good a deal as it first appears.

Should really have put credit in the title...

Instore gift cards haven't been reactivated yet. Yes you can trade in against new games but you can't spend old stuff as far as i'm aware.

Think it must only mean if you are trading against new stuff.

Before going into administration they were doing an extra £5 per 2 games so the offer has improved somewhat.

Also interestingly my local shutdown for a week (it was closed the Saturday before the Group went into administration) but was re-opened 'due to popular demand'.

I was in game last week, I would have gone to GameStation but they closed it down (besides they are owned by the same people), they said if you want to redeem your points you can do it against pre-owned only, otherwise you'll have to apply to the administrators for your cash back (fat chance in hell there).

I'm expecting to see a lot close down as Neither are buying new stock yet and what they have left is overpriced and rubbish.

Luckily I spent all mine last month when Game hit the newspapers

I'll have to check my local

They are out of administration as of Monday.

Gift cards are also being re-activated from next week. Cracking deal here. Hopefully gift cards become active from Monday, will go in then and trade in some old games for the extra £10. Problem is they give such a low trade rate, most things aren't worth trading in. Hello Mass Effect 3!

Wait they want MORE of peoples old junk? Wonder if they'll still do the trade-in price match in conjuction with this, otherwise your probably only getting what they should be giving you to begin with (I would say there at least £3.33 per title under valued on trade-in compared to rivals)

Need to check this out

excuse the daft question - but does this mean you would get £10 + 30p for three old games - say Fifia 07,08,09? if so good deal

my local has closed down so i am going to miss out on this

Cold...My local Gamestation (Hereford) just shut shop no word or anything just went over night.

For a company recently in administration offering credit, I would avoid

Game and Gamestation now have new owners, it is not the game stores group anymore.

You have to trade in and out at the same time. No risk off losing credit. Im suprised they havnt resolved this problem yet. No good for the stores that are still open.

Just worth noting that the games will have a minimum value - they won't take FIFA games this time around.

Upload the image to imageshack or similar, and then use the [img] url in your post

Surprised they gave you £8.40 (plus the £20) for those 6, the sports games could only have been £1 max between them, and you can buy Gears of war 2 for sub £5 online (I checked amazon)

EDIT - so (taking out the £3.33 bonus) they were giving over £1 for old games??? I should have kept Tiger Woods 08 I bought off them for 50p in the sale............

Yes, i realised i had my own ftp which i've not used in many a year. They gave me £1 each for the football games, £5.40 for the other 3. Then the £20 for the 6 trades, i have many more old games, i must find out a date of when there stopping this offer to get them all traded in! Didn't see it worth while otherwise.

The reason i got told there doing this deal is to put abit of life into the store, as people think there closed now, also with the mad sales they had before they shut. They sold alot of stock so just want stock on the shelves, Loose money to make more money in the long run.

Personally, i think the games are well well overpriced, The FIFA's i traded in you can usually pick them up for 49p-99p but they were selling at £4.99 today! There was nothing in the store that i wanted, so i'm happy to take the risk on this to keep the credit on my store card until there are some newer games i want or if they have daft sales again!

Fair play to you. In GS today i had to trade in and out again. Game will be my new best friend offering these prices. There was still a few cheap games in my store to pick up.
