Tesco adds pre-owned games to national stores

The huge pre-owned market for video games has just got a bit bigger with Tesco eventually offering a trade-in service in all their stores (only 60 have it so far). The initiative was tested at the end of last year and proved successful as it did for Argos and Asda who have also begun buying and selling used games. Adverts have been placed in national newspapers showing the trade-in value for popular games like Red Dead Redemption and New Super Mario Bros Wii which Tesco say can be spent on anything in store, not just other games – used or new.

It’s a great addition to the pre-owned scene previously owned by GAME and Gamestation but another annoyance for developers and publishers who are doing all they can to make us buy their games new.
