How'd you mean?

They scan the box usually, so it wont appear on there computer. Unless you sell it to them as an unboxed game.

I think he means that they won't take it as the barcode wouldn't be the same, and so when the tried to scan it, it wouldn't come up.

I don't think that's quite true, though, as I've sold a bundle game to them before with no barcode, and they simply searched for it on the computer.

Hodsey, it is true, they wouldn't accept my American game there.

American is different, as some American games won't play on UK 360's.... so that is probably why they didn't take that. European games would all work in the UK, so they wouldn't have a problem taking those in.

yeah, my games are all PAL

My games weren't 360, they were PS3, PS3 games aren't regionable so it's not that.

Hmm... dunno then. Maybe they just didn't like the look of you?!?

Well I can report that they took all of my games today, including one which i didn't realise was NTSC and not PAL but because it was multi region they accepted it. They scanned it and it went through without question.
