Trading Places

This is Trading Places, where we collate the trade in deals currently available at the big three specialist games retailers in the country. If you have games to trade and you want to get the best deal possible, this is a pretty good place to start.

    What happened to cheapskate gamer?

      My deepest apologies to Mark, and the Kotaku readers. Cheapskate is still alive. I've just been a bit busier than usual lately, what with Uni and all. I can lay a small (very tiny, minute, almost microscopic) amount of the blame on Mark/Tracey/whoever-the-editor-is-at-the-time, for not posting it when I send it on the very, very rare occasion though. (In reality, this has only happened 3 times so far).
      Next week will be a lot more organised for me, so you shall see it's return then. /prophesy

    Anyone know if you can trade imports anywhere?

      Everyone should take UK games, shouldn't they?

      Some places actually like it if you do. I heard of an EB shop that was traded an import of Left 4 Dead 2 and advertised it as the uncensored version to make more money.

      Although, it's still illegal to trade all RC games, like Mortal Kombat.

        you can sell grey imports if they stick the classifications on them, but generally no they dont accept grey imports

    press this link, sign up (its a cool site, cheaper than steam)

    you get 5 dollars credit if you buy somethign over 5 dollars, find a game you like (limited since they are new but Dead island is a good deal).

    use this code: SUMME-RBLOW-OUT25
    to get 25% off!!!

    bam cheap games, would of posted this in cheapskate gamer section(if there was one), you have 11 hours.

    Get dead island for 33 dollars or Batman AC for the same as well.

    I bought Deus Ex for 33 when it was 60 on steam and got 5 dollars extra credit, could't lose.

    If you must really get your cheapskate fix, head on over to

    If I buy a game from a bricks and mortar shop and it's a UK package, then there should be no problem with trading it back?
