LocalFound 9th Jun 2016
Hi, I was in game Barnstaple about 10 minutes ago and heard them talking about extra trade in, they said if you trade in 2 games (I believe xone and ps4, but don't hold me
To it), they will give you an extra £5 trade in credit.

I'm looking to unload FIFA 16 so if I can find something else I don't want then this'll do nicely.
I asked them on Twitter if all stores are doing it and this was their reply

"Hello! That's correct, drop in your local GAME to get involved."

can't be used with other offers will mean can't price match cex, not sure if the extra £5 would make it better than cex price match, handy for people without a cex close to game.
Will probably still be rubbish prices. They offered me £20 credit for Doom last week but after price matching CEX they gave me £37. Handy as a seller was selling Dark Souls 3 for £33. If you don't have a CEX near to a Game by you I think you would probably do better on eBay.

Just going to use it for items that are pretty much worthless otherwise like NBA 2K14.Sure in a normal 'Game' styley way the trade-in values of the rest will have gone down by £2.50 mysteriously overnight on the 8th (how cynical
PLEASE make sure you check CEX's trade-in prices first before falling for this. In most cases an extra £5 won't make up for their poor trade-in prices compared to CEX.

For example, I'm looking to trade in Borderlands Handsome Collection and Trackmania Turbo.
Price matching CEX I'd get £36 trade-in at Game. Using Game's values + £5 extra, I'd get £31. So I'm still £5 better off!!!

Just a heads-up anyway

I also get game to beat CEX for blu rays, as with the extra £1 on top it makes it more worthwile
Not particularly a good deal considering trade in prices at GAME are generally a lot worse than CEX. Just get them to price match CEX and beat it by £1. Not voted either way.
Wow, that means I may get £7 for two games now. Lol.
Great, extra £5 credit to be put towards a game that's £20 dearer than you can buy elsewhere.... false economy right there. Each to their own though.
they have probably adjust their trade in price down by a few quid a game to compensate for the 5 quid extra.... that's what used to happen

(excluding FIFA 14 or FIFA 15)


Haha, I guess they don't want people bringing in about 500 copies of FIFA! X)
Oh good, now we'll get £7 credit.

Damn I just noticed your comment.
Says it all "excluding FIFA 14 or FIFA 15" . When will people stop buying those ripoff games every year.
Thanks for the heads up on this! Perfect timing for me
Happy with this. Exhausted all the single player content in Destiny but the trade-in price is rubbish (both at CEX and Game). At least this way I'm getting something back :-)

And for anyone whinging about Game's prices, you can always just exchange for PSN/XBL credit or wait for the weekly deals (Doom for £29.99 is currently on, for example)

Could you enlighten us by posting in the Freebies section please?
Shame it's only Xbox One and PS4, would've been a nice boost to the couple of 360 games I want rid of that are worth next to nothing
is it just ps4 and xbone games?

​game refund up to £70
How this can get hot is anyone's belief. At a guess, they'd probably give what £15-20 for Black Ops 3 trade-in? Ebay you get £23-30. In addition, GAME with trade in you have to spend it at their prices, bare in mind that their new prices are generally £50+ and used prices are rarely good value.

All I'm saying is, silly to trade in as you'll lose 40-60% of the cash in the process by the money you're getting + the price you're having to buy games at. It takes about 1 minute to list something on ebay and not much effort to post it.
GAME once tried offering me £0 trade in value for a one week old bundle copy of Need for Speed Pursuit on Xbox360 (worth aprox £25 at the time). I was getting a trade in quote for seven games all at once, he didn't tell me it was valued at £0 until I requested a breakdown of the trade in prices as the quote was disgracefully low.

GAME, fu****g, suck.

I think it depends how you use it. I only buy from Game when they are the best price around, for instance the current Doom offer with the 10% off code.

And it also depends what games you are trading in. Trading in recent releases, yeah, pointless. But I've got a copy of Sunset Overdrive Day One which is pretty much worthless (even on eBay you'll get **** all) and Broken Sword 5 (which the game trade in page says will give me £7 trade in). £10 for both games, + £5. So that's £15 which I could use on say, a reduced price Doom.

You have to be selective to get value out of it, but I think you can.
The fact that this went hot with GAME's rubbish trade in prices and high price points explain why the cost of gaming is so high.
They are reportedly on the verge of bankruptcy again so spend your credit quickly.
Game were offering £16 for DOOM on release day.

TOP KEK
I did a little test.Tried 2 decent but not recent releases: Fallout 4 and Halo Collection for Xbox one.
With price match at Cex these would make £9 and £11. With this 'deal' they would make £8.50 and £10.50. Both 50p less.Coincidence?
Think the only way for it to work is a 'worthless' game like NBA2K14 which on price match you'd get £2.50 and with the 'deal' £5.
Haven't read all the comments so might be repeating someone, but the Camden store just told me that they're doubling up only during any games that any UK/Ireland teams are playing +/-30 mins. Have a feeling they didn't know what was going on, but they said that's the case for the rest of the tourney
I just bought 174 copies of doom
