Posted December 8th, 2011 by Stephen Roper

A brand new site has recently been launched called Trade Your Games which allows users to sell their unwanted console games, consoles and Blu-Rays for cash payments. Although this has been done before on other sites including Music Magpie, the thing that makes Trade Your Games unique is that it is the only place in the UK where users can sell games for credit to buy games off the same website just like the model that is used on the high street.

The TradeYourGames website was created as it was found that there was very few other websites that made the process of buying and selling console games easy and user friendly. As well as making the process of selling video games much simpler, the prices they pay for your old games are as much as 40% higher than on the high street.

We’ve also had a look through the prices that they sell consoles and video games for and found that they are not only lower than many shops on the high street but also lower than many other big gaming websites. In order to offer even more competitive prices all games and consoles are sent out via a free delivery service.

Currently you can sell or trade in games from many consoles including the Playstation 3, PSP, Xbox, Nintendo Gamecube, Nintendo DS and the Nintendo Wii. TradeYourGames also have a huge range of pre-owned, new video games and console systems that you can buy or part exchange. In the near future they are also planning to have a section where you can trade in your unwanted Blu-Ray movies for cash or credit, at this point in time you can only buy Blu-Rays from them.  According to their website they will also be looking at other items that you can trade in, in the future, any updates will be posted on their blog.

If you want to sell your old games for cash payments then once your old video games have been received and checked over the money will be added to your account. To get the cash rather than credit you can request that it is sent directly to your bank account, Paypal or via cheque.

They have also recently launched a pretty cool referral scheme where you enter your friend’s e-mail address and then get 5% of the order value in cash once their old games have been received. In order to help encourage them your friend will also get an extra 5% on their order.

Whether you are looking to sell console and handheld video games to earn some extra money or sell and buy different games at the same time then Trade Your Games is definitely a great site to use.

    Definitely recommend selling to the tradeyourgames site – i sold a whole load of ps3 games gathering dust and didnt get shafted on the trade-in price – would have got more selling on ebay or amazon but this was an easier way of doing it – highly recommended way to get cash for games is to simply trade them in at tradeyourgames.co.uk

    Selling my 60GB ps3 works perfectly , backwards compatiable plays ps1,ps2 and ps3, ok condition, doesnt come boxed and comes without a control . reason for selling i have slimline one now. but still a very desirable version of PS3 arguably the best of all the big PS3′s and even a contender with the slimlines as its has card readers and the ability to play previous playstation games which the slim does not.

    Price wanted

    £120-150 or reasonable offer will be considered

    There is plenty of negative response to the OLPC project, particularly focused on the politics around the distribution and use of the computers. So, it was so refreshing to meet the OLPCs through Mary Lou Jepson’s hand in its creation, and to understand the innovation and advanced technologies that have gone into making them. Aside from the evident advancements that went into the development of the screen, such as the ability to be used in direct sunlight and to have the graphic quality of that of a laser printed document—neither quality is particularly standard on commercial laptops, OLPC’s greatest success from a technological standpoint is its modular quality. What I mean by this is usually successful computer design is associated with sleek exteriors and a discouragement of opening the laptop up yourself to reconfigure the hardware (there is a “genius bar” to fix computers for you, or you are enticed to buy the newer, thinner model). The fact that OLPCs were designed to be modular in that they could easily be taken apart and hardware updated or fixed creates an all together different, and maybe more successful attitude surrounding the technology within the laptop. The report about the girls who started the OLPC laptop hospital to perform these minor hardware adjustments is an instance of how attitudes around computer technology should be, even if not everyone is able to manipulated the physical aspects of the laptop, it is still understood that a “non-genius” will be able to do so, like the girls of the hospital. The technological advancements made in OLPCs are sure to find their ways into commercially sold laptops, but what might be more important to the current generation of computer users would be a return and refocus on the malleability of the hardware and the personal hand within the use of technology. Not to mention that it is in fact more environmentally sound to alter and update a laptop piece by piece as it is needed, than to scrap an entire computer in favor of a newer model.

    Thanks for your comment Lia Abide. The OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) idea does indeed mean that to upgrade or repair a laptop you could just take it into a ‘laptop hospital’ and have a small part inside replaced. This instead of fully disposing of a broken laptop having to break it down into its components and materials, some of which are not recyclable.

    OLPCs are cheaper to fix and upgrade, and as Earth’s resources become more precious, these advances in modular laptops will hopefully find their ways into normal laptop systems.
