I've got two PS3 games, Oblivion and Ridge Racer, which I'd really like to trade in somewhere. Is Game the only place that does trade ins? I don't really mind store credit since I'm in the market for Mario Galaxy anyway.

Mario Galaxy wont work on a PS3.

Oh balls. Hopefully it'll work on my Wii though.

I'm starting to think there is no pint trading in games anymore.

I get about 15 trade in value on Wii/360/PS3 games here at gamestop. I mean WTF? 60-70 retail and 15 trade-in ? It's hardly worth it.

Yeah I know what you mean. I think I'll have a pop by Game and ask them what they'll offer. There's always eBay although I really can't be bothered with that. It looks like I could get ~20 for Oblivion on eBay and close to that for Ridge Racer.

Ridge Racer just sucks and Oblivion's too much of a time investment for something that just doesn't seem all that fun. All they're going to do is gather dust on the shelf whereas something like Mario Galaxy I would actually play. The downloadable demos are enough to showcase the PS3 if people want to see what its like.

Game said they'd give me 18 for Oblivion and something like 5-10 for Ridge Racer 7 (although they had to guesstimate that one since they didn't have any copies to run through the machine). Gamestation were ***holes and just said "We don't give estimates or tell you in advance. You have to bring in the games for us to give you a quote". They can sod right off. If Game had offered ~15 for RR7 I'd probably have taken the deal. I think I'll just do the eBay challenge and put them up at buy-it-now for 20+delivery each.

eBay is all I can recommend. Sometimes GAME and the likes have nice offers where you can trade in an old game and get a discounted new game. I believe GAME are running one now where you can buy Galaxy for 19 so long as you trade in Warioware-esque aged games.

Which is daft as Sainsbury's and Tesco sell Galaxy for 27.

eBay.

I'm glad you're not that stupid :D. Of coarse I don't know why he didn't just assume you have a Wii...

the poor trade in value is a big reason i'm thinking of getting GameFly and just renting my games from now on. if i get the $23 / month plan, that $275 which is about 5 (new) games. I can foresee buying more than 5 games in 2008.

DO they have game rental companies across the ocean?
