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.

    Why are the EB prices listed always completely different to what I get told when I call them? Every week!

    Also no mention of JB Hi Fi trading 1 game for MW3? (from a list of certain games)

      Yeh am interested in taking up that deal, but just need to finish Arkham City first.. Any idea how long that deal is going for?

      EB's trade value's change daily

        I know prices change. I've called them the same day as this article has been posted on multiple occasions, every time, prices are different.

          Have you tried comparing a couple of Eb stores to each other? I've had similar experience, as I understand it; EB stores can set their own trade values. The closest EB to me has much lower trades compared to the next nearest store as it has no JB or GAME close by. GAME stores seem to have set trade values across the company from talking to friends interstate... Can anyone else confirm or rebuke?

    lol Games are best for all them yay also i need priced on skyrim wheres best to get so i can price compare at jbhi fi

      Skyrim is $63 tomorrow only at Jb hi fi. Not too shabby! Same with Sonic Generations which im gonna pick up tomorrow:)

    Was offered $31 for Uncharted 3 at EB :(
