Great thanks. So you dont have to provide proof they check themselves?
Theres a massive difference between the prices.

They also beat CEX by £1 per item.

No, they match cash prices also, as of a few months ago.

It varies - most often they'll ask you to provide proof, but if it's a price that can be checked online they may offer to check for you.

Does that apply to PS3 games as well? Because a lot of my old PS3 games are hardly worth a pound at cex.

It applies for any item that they'll accept for trade-in - though some stores/staff will try to apply it to the entirety of the items that you're looking to trade in, taken together rather than individually. Aslo bear in mind that they're not obliged to accept anything that they don't want to take, and the entirety of the trade-in offer (including price-match) is subject to the store manager's discretion.

So ican show them the cex price on my phone when i am in store. Al give it a go in the morning.

They beat games prices trade and cash,I received cash this morning from game beating cex price after showing them on my phone

Just screenshot on your phone CEX price

In my experience, which was a while ago now, they won't match/beat a price if it is more than they sell the game for.

I can't remember the game, but Game were selling it for £20 preowned and CEX were offering £21 trade in. Game's trade in price was £12 and they wouldn't go above that

They also wouldn't take a screenshot, it needed to be the live website on my phone at the time

Took games in yesterday and asked if they would price match cex. The boy got his tablet out and beat cex price by a pound for each item. Job done. Cheers.
