Video games are always a popular choice of gift when it comes to Christmas, and there’s plenty of great new games to buy this year such as Gran Turismo 5, Call of Duty: Black Ops and Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood. There is always the option of a trade-in on new titles as well.
Many stores offer video game trade-ins leading up to Christmas (and other times of the year), including Blockbuster and Gamestop. For example, Blockbuster stores offer trade-ins on games from a number of platforms including Nintendo Wii, DS, PS3, Xbox 360 and PS2.
However, you do have to be a member of the Blockbuster store to be able to take advantage of the trade-in. You won’t find details of the trade-in values via the store’s official website, but you will be able to get all the information you need by visiting your local store.
Gamestop on the other hand have a few trade-in offers detailed on their website, so it might be worth taking a look. For example, trade in your old games such as Dead Rising 2, Medal of Honor and Battlefield Bad Company 2, and get $20 in-store credit towards games such as Fallout: New Vegas.
You can read more about the latest Gamestop trade-in offers via the gamestop.com website. Have you taken up any trade-in offers? What other stores do you know that are offering video game trade-ins?
