Microsoft supports retailer rip off deals

Xbox has partnered with GAME UK to offer you a not so good deal which only seems to line the pockets of the retailer rather than have the consumers interests at heart.

Only idiots trade in at game.. cex and gamestation (using match it price and pulling up cex prices off your phone) are the places to trade in.

You're better off trading in games at Cex but hardware is usually the same in both stores.

Btw Game, Gamestation and Gameplay are the same company. Beware.

People still don't get it!

Say you trade your console to them. "IF" they resell it, they make a profit!

... But what if they never sell it?

The goal of these deals are to move new product, which is why they offer you this to get you to buy new sh*t!

You guys must value oldsh*t! Because when I look at an old console, I just wonder how many miles it has on it.

I guarantee you, there are only a small amount of gamers looking for old systems. Most want the new slim models. They already have tons of used and refurbished consoles in stock that they can't sell!

The goal is to sell new consoles!

Classic Troll!

So where is the proof that this is endorsed or in any way related to MS?

Sounds more like to me what GAME is doing is business as usual. I don't know why people get their pants twisty, but the fact is having a 50% profit margin isn't that great considering the risks and costs of running a business.

The 10-20 extra GBP might not be worth the effort and hassle of selling it yourself.

Sony did this at Gamestop.

Trade in your old fat PS3 + 100 bucks for the new slim PS3.

It's an option. Don't get your panties in a bunch over nothing.

FAGOL2742d ago

Yeah I know it's just business. It's not like you're being forced to use the offer.

AAACE52742d ago

Same situation I explained above!
