GAME trade-in online checker goes live

Monday, 28th May 2012 12:01 GMT By Johnny Cullen

GAME has gone live with its online trade-in checker, allowing consumers to check the worth of their future swaps.

The checker will prompt you to put in the barcode that resides on the game’s box. Once done, you’ll be able to see how much your money is worth.

It’ll also total up as many games as you want at any time, meaning you can find out the amount of value you’ll get if you trade in multiple games.

GAME is currently holding a in-store offer where you’ll get 25% extra credit when you do trade your games.

    It’s useless…

    I typed in the BF3 code (which is the one in their “not sure where to look” image) and it doesn’t work.

    LOLZ Why use a barcode system? Just use the name of the game ffs XD

    Why do they make it so hard for themselves.

    If I were to hazard a guess, I’d say the reason behind bar codes is to help identify what certain copy of the game you have – Is it a PAL copy and not a US/JP? is it platinum? is it Collector’s Edition? is it Xbox/PS3? Is it an updated version/GotY? GAME just want to make sure they are covered so that they get what they expect/paying for.

    As I said, complete speculation – fingers crossed they’ll bring out smartphone bar-code scanners to help them out of the teething stage.
