CEX - Where do they stand on Boxed/Instructions etc?

Found 16th Jul 2008
I have some PSP games, and looking at the CEX site just gonna take em in and get a credit note for em as the exchange rates are pretty good!

Thing is, some dont have instructions, and some are UMD only

Do they accept these? And what sorta price do they do?

i dont think they will take them tbh

they take them but will give you peanuts matey

they definately won't take umd only but ii think they might take without instructions

They give the same amount for a game even without the manual , but they won't take UMD's on there own.

yeah they arent bothered about lack of instructions, but you have to have the box.

Yea, it's my new favourite shop for trade-ins too! I got £24 trade-in for Apollo Justice the other day - Gamestation, Grainger Games and Game offered me less for that and two other games altogether!

Yea, they accept them, but I sold the half that I couldn't play on here... I think some of them they would have give £4 exchange for! Doh!

Nevermind - you live and learn!

Only opened in Boro last week - I can see poor Chips struggling with the new boy in town....

Hehe! I used to the the manager of the Chips in Boro... think they'll struggle to compete now.

I got about £2 each, but postage was covered too Sold a few others I had aswell that I no longer wanted.

You get £11 trade for the Rambo UMD at CEX! Gonna keep my eyes peeled in Cash Generators for that one :thumbsup:

Not bad, il take this Amityville horror thats been 'haunting' me next time :thumbsup:

The prices on the exchange arent bad at all (Like £10 for my Colin McRae 2005 for PSP) - and the 'odd' thing is pretty cheap considering, got my eye on a few things when I got enough credit.

The best thing I found is, you couldnt really be shunned by the staff mispricing your goods, because they use the barcode scanner - very handy!

You get £2 exchange for that there... or you could print out the price off the web, and take it to gamestation, as they'll beat it by £1?

Well, I'm gonna take a load of my DVDs in there tomorrow, that I can't be bothered having to post (stuff like CSI and Futurama boxsets). People will want them for cheap, but they cost too much to post. :thumbsup:
