TESCO largest superstore chain in UK to buy used games

Forums - Sales Discussion - TESCO largest superstore chain in UK to buy used games

Tesco, the largest supermarket chain in UK has begun buying second-hand games across the UK.

For your games you'll be paid credit, which can be used to buy anything else in store: nappies, olives, cat food, drink, whatever.

Adverts spotted by MCV tout a £19 trade-in price for Red Dead Redemption on Xbox 360. Mario Kart Wii fetches £19 and 2010 FIFA World Cup £12 on PS3.

These games will be re-sold at applicable stores nationwide.

Apparently around 60 Tesco outlets now accept pre-owned games. Every little helps.

Interesting. However, given how devs are taking steps to cut into this, they may be a little late to the party.



Well I guess every little helps!

Steps that aren't really working.  Gamestops used game profits increase for the q and here in the UK as well as getting increased shelf space in all game retailers they are now in the biggest UK store chain by far.



Amazon Best buy and walmart tried that here in the US. They all failed miserably. Good luck tesco!
