GTA IV Cheap - Way to make a lil money in real life

Howdy all,

Just a lil tip for anyone a little strapped for cash and who will be buying xmas pressies in somewhere like HMV.

Basically at the moment (in store) Blockbuster are selling GTA IV (PS3 & Xbox 360) for £12.99 pre-owned. What makes this good is that they are also in their 2 for £18 deal.

So GTA IV for £9 each... Take your two copies down somewhere like Game or HMV and then sell them for in store vouchers. At the moment they are paying something like £16 - £20 for each copy.

I just bought 6 copies for PS3 and 2 copies for 360 on my way home from work

Yeah it is a little scabby but still £50+ quid is £50+ and it will help on a few presents this Xmas (perhaps presents for myself).

Just checked on Game and they aren't offering much trade in so I'll post back tomorrow with exactly what HMV give me.

CEX are offering £15 for PS3 and £16 for Xbox at the moment.
