I find that GAME is best for trade-ins - http://www.game.com.au/tradedeals - if you trade in 3 games you get $10 bonus credit, 4 games $20 bonus credit, and 5 games $30 bonus credit. Their trade in values are usually better than EB's but if they're not, they match EB's.

If you're after a game in particular to trade for, check the JB Hifi site and see if it's on their Trade-3-games-for-1-free list, and see if your games to trade are on the Exclusions List - this can be a great way to get recent games on the cheap.

The problem with Game's trade in awesomeness is their prices are generally crappier than eb.

Really? I thought GAME would match any price EB had (printouts from the EB website work...)

Game is currently having a sale with a heap of cut-price titles. At the moment, their trade in prices aren't great.

EB's are ok. And they take pretty much anything except for Wii Sports (only tradeable with console).

JB's prices have nose dived, particularly for crappy games.

I recommend calling around and finding the best deal for particular titles. JB's exclusion list for 3-for-1 offers are insane. Used to be that you could trade 3 relatively ordinary titles. They exclude almost everything under the sun now. Probably because of the crap they end up with.

It took me 6 Wii games to trade for SMG2 at EB, and that included price matching to JB's $69, and even still, I had to pay them $3. Still, got rid of Wii Play, World Sports Party and a few other bargain bin titles. Then traded FIFA 10 to JB for $25 after buying it from Game for $24 Razz... snagged Ghostbusters with it. Wink

I ended up trading a pile of games for their value in a JB voucher, managed to get a better deal than handing over three premium titles for a new game.

Their terms & conditions state they don't accept trades on any consoles of any kind.

Wish we could do that here, they don't do the jb voucher deal in NSW. Not that any of my games I don't want are able to be traded.

Good luck getting anything worth the effort, you can still buy them new, now at around $100~
