Mods feel free to move if in wrong place.

ANYWAY, just traded in a load of games at Blockbuster (best trade in prices on high street), and in my stack of games I had CoD3 and Prey, so what you might say, these were Play Asia purchases, and they accepted them!

Got 15 for CoD3 and 10 for Prey, so a loss of 10quid from new, not bad! AFTER she put them through I mentioned it, and the woman said, "oh yeah it happens all the time as they use diefferent barcodes, so we put them in manually!"

Just thought you would like to know!

I tried to trade my imported (but PAL) copy of Just Cause, at GAME, but they wouldn't accept it.

Traded DiRT - £25 and Flatout - £20 though which I thought was reasonable

Very interesting.... I have a few games that won't scan over here so if they would accept them i'd be interested...

Did she say all their stores do them manually, or was that just in their store?

By the way, which store was it?

Interesting. I tried trading in COD 3 and Just Cause import copies at a Blockbusters (at the time still a Gamestation) and they wouldnt take them because they didn't scan. I wonder if now it's not technically a Gamestationt hey might take them. They are also Play Asia copies. I got bored of both games very fast so don't really want them.

it depends on the staff.

I have got rid of a US Ridge racer this way, but another time the person would not take the game as it had no rating sticker on.

As a former PT employee Blockbusters - i can confirm that will accept anything. Their business is going down the tubes and the are desperately trying to shore it up.

I think its more downto the staff than the store policy.

If I get the comic book guy type he reviews everytime you trade in and knows the score, were as the old women who works in my store does not have a clue and blames that dam computer for not having it listed.

Will Blockbuster accept games with bundle copy written on the cover? So on trading in US region games, some stores will accept and some won't right?

Probably, having said that my local wouldnt take PSP games, they sent me to gamestation. Dont know if they have stopped taking all handheld games or just the PSP

Anyone know how much they offer for
Burnout Revenge
PGR3
COD2

Fancy Bioshock (who doesn't!!) but don't fancy paying full £35 price for it.

Cheers :smashin:

Went to ChoicesUk this weekend - got £17 for Burnout Revenge, £13 for COD2 and £6 for PGR3 (all on the 360). Great! Wouldn't have got that for them on here! Got Bioshock for peanuts and have been hooked on it since :)

Cheers ChoicesUK - use them before they go into administration!

Mine (Chippenham) took a PSP game yesterday, so probably down to the store manager's discretion.

Hi all, try www.cex.co.uk , I have used them in the past and have had no problems, going to exchange Godfather and Virtua Tennis 3 for £30 exchange voucher. Will come in handy for COD 4 :thumbsup:
