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.

But first, a quick disclaimer – these trade-in prices will change from day to day.

It's also worth noting that both EB and GAME are upping their prices if you trade towards pre-orders!

    Whoa, Shadows has gone up. And Dead Island for over $50, wow.

    Hey guys, dunno if this is the right place, or

    Anyway, I preordered Rage on PC, but EB doesn't actually have stock

    If someone has one, or can find one, please email me at [email protected]

      What an awesome email name... Although linking directly to it you are bound to hear from quite a few Nigerian princes and penis-enlargement firms, now.

    Space Marine
    GAME: $47.50
    EB: $37.95
    JB Hifi: $30
    Chuloopa: Priceless

    Dead Island must be in pretty high demand right now... I can't even find an Xbox 360 copy in my local area.

    LA Noire for less than 40 bucks? Fck that.

    I never understand these trading places lists. How many games do we have to trade to get the discounted price? Is it different for each retailer?

      Um... these are values that these retailers will give you if you trade these games to them. They then sell them to their customers for considerable mark up.

        OOhhhhhhhhh...... well colour me stupid. Good thing I've never actually gone in to try trade something based on my misunderstanding.

    The best part is GAME never actually offer as much as they lie about.

      They don't? I generally trade towards Thursday's new releases and the trade values are generally not far off. Plus you get an extra 25% towards anything right now which is I guess why this weeks prices are weird cent breakdowns?
