Was just wondering how to do this, as I'm gonna trade in a few things tomorrow (controller + games). The GAME and CEX in question are like, right across the road from each other.

Do I just show them the price CEX will give me on my phone and they price match it?

My local will only price match on receipt print outs from CEX, they dont take any notice of your phone annoyingly.

I've done it at two branches.

One of them always had me show the price on the CEX website on my phone. The other branch always checked it on their phone.

I would suggest taking a print out with the date on it as proof, this is what I do.

Went to mine last week, employee asked if I had it ready on my phone. Then when scanning each game I just had to tell Cexs price and show it on my phone, if it was higher they matched and added a £1.

Best to have all the games/accessories in your Cex sell basket to save time.

Just show them on your phone and refresh the page in front of them

Well that would be open to me being exceedingly annoying.
Out of habit pop into Game every time I pass, oh can I get a price for these games, I need it printed.
I bet they wouldn't be very willing to do so, so why should other stores.
Though don't worry about it Game will be a smoking crater to cow poo after the Christmas season is over. I certainly wouldn't be sitting on any credit from them.

I would make a complaint about that store then, ALL of the GAMEs I've been to accept website printouts (with current date) or the cex website on your phone. I even asked them once if they could find out the price for me and beat it and they did so on thier laptop.

Yeah my local is really annoying, lovely staff but I havent managed to get them to price match.
The excuses for a receipt are most common, along with 'Were not price matching right now'.... right okay!

There are enough rumours going about to make my wallet nervous of any purchases made in there.
If Christmas isn't good I can't see how they'd last.

It's all managerial discretion, it's really annoying how they have no consistency in the policy across their branches. Most I've been to and the one I worked at all accepted the online price from a phone, some do ask for the print out receipt, but it's obvious they are doing this to just stop anyone bothering. If they act funny, just make a fuss, that occasionally works, especially if you're planning on buying something.

Not all do price match + £1 on all items, sometimes they add the quid to the overall trade in price.

Do they match cash price or voucher price? if vorcher price they its a great deal

My local GAME state that they require a printout of the CEX trade price (used to be only if you were trading in a lot of items, then the other week they guy said it was any amount of items)

My local game accepted my phone displaying the cex website. I suggest you put in a complaint, asking for a receipt from cex is just plain stupidity. Like wtf? They expext you to go all the way to a CEX, ask them for receipts then take them back to GAME lol what a JOKE.

I've always been able to get price matches based on the CeX website on my phone - this is at the Manchester Arndale store.

Ultimately, though, they can always fall back on "manager's discretion' to refuse any trade for any reason.
