    Personally i think you could have made quite a bit more either selling here or eBay, + you would have cash and not store credit.If you're happy then thats all that matters

    may have got more on ebay, and forums, but its aload of hassle for that many

    i cleared out aload of dvds this way at blockbusters, but the time and money via ebay equals out the price.


    www.cex.co.uk give you an idea what you would have got withthem.

    This is why i cant bring myself to trade games in, an average of just over £10 per game, are you :censored: kidding me? For those prices id rather keep them.

    Past the first month or two of release the prices drop ridiculously low.

    Whatever you do dont go back in see what thier selling them for :eek:

    I am a horder though so take my views with a pinch of salt. If it wasn't for the fact the 360 doesnt play loads of XBOX games id still have loads of those too.

    [EDIT:Just noticed you live in Nottingham!] Dude if you had said i would have met you in town and taken at least three of those of your hands for more than you got.

    Good price on dead rising, IMO if you dont play them and you cant be bothered with ebay and sending out individually, collecting payment etc then its an easy way to get rid of them. Ive done it before when i got rid of my GBA.

    You'd get more on ebay but youd have fees and by the time postage is taken into account you wouldnt get any more on here, ive sold a few of the titles in the list for less.

    See people say, i'd rather keep it then let it go for less than whats acceptable, but i'm with the OP. I have the view of if i know i wont play the game again i'll get rid of it, doesn't really matter how much for, but i tend to trade rather than sell usually. I'd rather get a little bit back then keep hold of something i wont play with, or play with very rarely. So good on you BEN_UK!

    I am unfortunately a bit of a hoarder!!!!! I like having loads of cases stacked up on my shelves :) Hence the reason I have about 35+ xbox1 games, 40+ dreamcast games, 15+ 360 games and loads of nes,saturn,pc,gba,gameboy,gg games :)

    I think that makes me what my friends keep going on about - a bit of a gamer!! :)

    I rarely have more than 1 game for any system at any one time. I have always bought a game, finished it, traded it in at Gamestation, then used the credit to get my next game. It basically means that I rarely pay more than £20 for any game ever.

    I've been doing this for years in the same shop, to the extent that one guy who works there turns a blind eye when I bring in games and says "OK, so you're bringiing this in for the 7 day exchange, right???" and he then gives me £50 credit note - that way I even get games for free sometimes

    It all depends oh how much you paid for the games originally as to whether you've done alright. If you paid £40 for everyone of those games then you would have shelled out £720 so to lose £500 isn't a great deal. But if you got some of those games cheap or via trades then yeah i'd say you did alright
