Thinking about trading in your video games?

Next gens soon to be released, and many big new titles coming out you might be thinking about trading in some (maybe all) your games. You might also be thinking hrmm, where do I get the most for my still playable stuff. Well we have been doing some research to help you out. Now it might not be statistically accurate but we searched the interwebs, called many stores and even visited a few. (PS3, Xbox 360)

I'm not a trade-in person either!

I like my collection and being able to play an old favourite whenever i want.

Plus, trade in prices are daylight robbery in most place, even for new title that have only been out for a matter of weeks.

I'll keep my collection thanks =)

Like you sometimes a game will sit on the shelf for months, then it'll hit me and that's all I will play for a while. Besides that when I am truly done with a game my nephew comes and takes it.

As any real collector will tell you, the minute you sell a beloved game is the same day you'll want to play it again.

Sold every single game I've played, never looked back. Too many newer games to play anyway.

Yeah I traded in Resident Evil 5, Red Dead Redemption,Heavy Rain, Gran Turismo 5. Regretted every game being traded in...I haven't traded in a game in over a year now. :P

If I couldn't trade or resell, I wouldn't be able to afford to keep up with newer games!

I only trade games that I beat and/or lose interest in though... They either collect dust or help me pay off newer releases! I always choose the 2nd way!

"Games with much higher review scores will keep their value longer, and games with very low scores will loose value very quickly"

this couldn't be less true.

Buy kindle cards with your credit, and it'll become Amazon credit. That's usually what I do.

My games stay where they are I still have my games from the previous 3 generations and I sure as hell won`t get rid of my games.

I like to trade in my games because I usually don't go back and play them. I move onto the next best games coming up, because there is a lot to play!

I get more money via eBay then anywhere else.

Though I keep most of my games, some of them get boring and I sell... I had CoD:Bo2 (Even though I hated it) on the PS3 yet I hardly touched it since last November...

So I sold it on eBay for £11... Glad I got rid of it in the end :-)

Everything went and it payed from my PS4 and my Xbox One!

With my current collection unless they get a re-release on the PS4 I'll keep what I have.

Also with GameStop I'm done with them; from now on it's trading with friends or Ebay.
