Game to launch pre-owned stores

6 February 2014

game-logo It has been a tough year or so for Game, but they've come back and are making the best of a bad situation which has seen many companies fold.

Back from the brink, the gaming vendor has announced plans to really corner the pre-owned games market.

They're looking to refit a small number of their existing shops under a new name called Gametronics.

Initially, these stores will crop up in places that already have more than one Game store. These outlets won't just stock previously owned games, but will also sell other forms of technology, such as phones, tablets or consoles.

It looks like Game are going after the market currently bossed by CEX.

In the Gametronics shops, you'll be able to trade-in games and gadgets in exchange for credit that you'll be able to use in Game stores. Could be handy if you want to palm off your PS3 if you've got your eye on a PS4. You can assume you'll be able to trade things in for straight cash also.

    So it's Cash Convertors but only sell electronics? Great we need more of those nestled next to betting shops, yeah, that'll work.
