We investigate and compare the best trade in and cash prices for your old games and consoles, to get you the best deals, at the leading UK retailers

It is estimated that in the UK, consumers trade in or sell around 43 million units of computer games, consoles and accessories every year - through shops such as CEX, GAME and on the internet with Amazon, Music Magpie and many more - yet are not getting the best deals on offer. This intrigued us immensely.

An epic swindle perhaps? An excellent question Winston, it was also my first deduction…

Our aim is to also give you guidance on how much credit or cash, each retailer is currently offering for your unwanted items. We can do this prior to you marching off into town laden with bags, or making numerous phone calls, and without you spending hours online. 

Allow us to explain:

One day, we couldn’t help but notice that each retailer will offer a different trade in value, depending upon their own current stock of preowned games and platform consoles, and how many they are currently selling (in laymen’s terms: if a retailer has a fetish for GTA 5 and therefore has a huge stack of them, they may offer you a much lower price – but when they want more stock, the second hand values can sometimes go much higher!). We’ve simply been studying their methods. It’s what we Trade In Detectives do. We each have a calling and we have simply found ours.

Trade in values for games change roughly every 24hrs, so I must insist you check back to our website regularly, in order to compare game prices and get the latest up-to-date info. All too often even the wisest of us can fall foul of grand assumptions, yesterday’s prices are old news. Like Screamo bands, all hair today, gone tomorrow...

We have also identified a trend which suggests that unwanted or old computer games are primarily traded in against new release games (For example: FIFA 13 will be traded in for a brand new copy of FIFA 14) -
so hallelujah to the shop keeper, who lets us enjoy the latest and greatest games, for a cheaper price!

We will also guide you on who is giving the best offers against new release games too, including the hottest titles! Simply wonderful.


And to summarize our impeccable observation: - Please remember that most retailers will price match competitors offers upon request – so do your research here first, and you'll get the best deals, at whatever shop keeper you chose to frequent. Remember old boy: “forewarned is forearmed”.


No need to thank us, the pleasure is all ours.


Shall we begin our investigation now? Excellent, the Game Is Afoot...
