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.

  • The trade in price for Alice: Madness Returns seems reasonably high when you compare it to some of the AAA games listed.

    Especially when second hand copies don’t include a copy of the original game.

    • trade prices reflect not necessarily on the quality of a title, but moreso to a couple of factors including, how many preowned copies they already have in stock and how big the demand is for a pre owned copy of the game. alice is a game that most id imagine would be unwilling to pay full price for it brand new, but might pick it up pre owned to give it a try.

  • I traded in Black Ops for PS3 yesterday at EB Games, and they only gave me $20 for it, so the Wii trade-in value must be different
