For example, I traded in Call of Duty Modern Warfare (which I bought for £19.00 on ebay) and Left for Dead (which I bought for £19.99 online) to get £50 credit towards Batman Arkham Asylum, which was £39.99 - leaving me with £10.01 on a gift card for another purchase.

I think it is a pretty good way of getting rid of some games for decent money, considering there are a load of good titles coming up in the next few months including Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, Left for Dead 2 and Fifa 10. It's also pretty good money for some games which you can buy for considerably less on ebay and other online stores.

Hopefully this will help someone.

Ps they are offering what I think is good money for trading in Playstation 3. I was offered £160 to trade in my PS3 40GB - considering they are selling for around £180 on ebay with games and accessories, it seemed a pretty good deal to get money off the PS3 Slim.

do you reckon gamestation will match this with the ' we will not be beaten by trade -ins'?

So do you need to buy something with the credit there and then?

Not sure, as we don't have a gamestation here!

I think that if you pre-order a game there you get the money from the trade-ins put on to a store gift card. I am not positive though, just guessing from when Gamestop had a trade-in deal previously.

Very good offer. Will try it down in Birmingham, i had the MK Vs DC for 10 quid from play, can put it against Forza 3

How many of these stores are in the UK?

if theres a gamestation close to this shop then maybe, otherwise forget it mate, even then they will probably say because its a SPECIAL DEAL from game stop then it wont count:thumbsup:

I did a quick search on a few titles, a good deal I found was Ultimate Band for Wii - brand new at Game.co.uk - £9.99.

game.co.uk/Wii…687

It would be quite nice to get £50 for £20 spent!

I picked up FF4 on the DS for £4 this week, and they had more copys, shame there aren't any branches round here.

grrr read this as gamestation lol no gamestop near me. was just going to order the guitar hero for ds off hmv to trade in lol

Last year you didnt need to trade in and you got £30 nobody rated it hot as they didnt believe and guess who posted, im still so annoyed about that.

Get out more then.. :roll:

I work for Gamestop and can confirm this deal. I can also let you know its possible to pick up many of these games online for under £10 and trade them in for £25.

You can also trade multiple games against any preorder. (Not multiple copies of the same game at one time though)

For example if you trade in CO4 and COD world at war. you get £50 off any new release that is not out yet.


Thats how I paid for my presteige edition of MW2 :-D

Got the £120 editon for £45

Heat added.

i live about 45 mins away from one. And i remember the last time they did this, but they gave £30 for each game instead. The only problem was that when they got too many of one game they would no longer accept it, so the best advice is to trade in quick

Has the promotion already started and if so if anyone has their store magazine is there any chance they can scan the pages with the game names. Not that i dont believ you OP but just because i thought there were more games on the list.

more for the psp i meant

Can`t you send the games off like you can with Cex?

Brilliant deal.

To be honest i had been pretty underwhelmed by gamestop but looks like their finally trying to compete with GAME now.

Great Deal but there aren't any stores anywhere near london

cant see this lasting long now as they are gonna get fleeced

how bizarre to offer £25 trade in against some games you can get new for £9.99!

i thought this was only in america

Always nice when deals like this essentially allow consumers to make a profit. It more than likely won't last long, but it's hot for now.

philflak;6159707

1 in Chesire

Stockport, specifically. Which I only mention because that's far on the east side of Cheshire, and will be closer to those living in Manchester (seen as it is actually on the M60) than those living towards the west side of Cheshire.

You can see it that way or you can see it like they are selling a lot of brand new titles for £49.99 or whatever the price. Which normally they will struggle because people will wait a few weeks or months to get new titles cheaper.

I have to admit is a good deal as long as you want a new release and want to play it now. I know for me it would not be that great, I still have a lot of games to play so getting a new release will just go to the back of the queue in my list to play so by the time I get to play them I could have got them for £19.99 or less.

How many times has happened to you that you buy a game let say at £19.99 which is a really mega hot deal but by the time you get to play it the game (let say two month later) costs £9.99 everywhere. I know that this has happened to me a lot :x

The real question is when was the last time you paid full retail price for a game? I know I have not for a long time :thumbsup: (thanks to HUKD)

Either way Heat added, even that we don't have those shops down here in London :thumbsup:

how many games can be traded in at any one time? (all different games)

Fair point, and indeed I am in the same boat. I can't remember the last time that I bought a game on release (possibly The Orange Box), and due to the combination and always wanting to get the most out of my games and always having a few games in reserve I generally wait for months after a game is released before buying it by default. So yeah, I won't be taking advantage of this one, but it is a good deal for those that do like picking up brand new releases.

I think this offer might be over, there was a page about the offer on the site for the last few weeks, and its gone today.

Not sure its over, but just a word of warning to people buying dozens of cheap games online to trade.

What the situation with this? Is it still going?

Cant comment on the UK stores, but the Irish stores brought out a new list today, with apparently (i dont have the list myself) all the DS games are removed, along with anything cheap.

rats! ahh well

Has anyone got a list of the new games?

A new list would be appreciated. Guaranteed the two games I ordered yesterday for £10 each wont be on there now :x

and which ones were they?

bigup;6179863

Project Baja: Edge of Control
MK Vs DC Universe

Thought this was HUKD and not HIED
Heat added as good deal for NI'ers

I got a peek at the new list when i was in there today, there are no DS games although still some pretty easy to get hold of 360 titles.

I think MK vs DC might still be included but not 100% on that.
