Tesco Launches Nation-Wide Game Trade-Ins

Tesco has announced a new game trade-in scheme in 60 of its outlets across the United Kingdom.

The supermarket giant has decided to roll out the service across outlets in the UK after conducting a successful trail at its Basildon branch earlier in the year.

Tech news site MCV reported that the super market chain has put up advertisements in country-wide newspapers to display the price rates it is willing to offer for used copies of selected video games.

According to the adverts, Tesco will accept trade-ins for used copies of all big name games, including £12 for 2010 FIFA World Cup on PS3, £17 for Mario Kart Wii, £14 for Alan Wake on Xbox 360, and £19 for the Xbox 360 version of Red Dead Redemption.

Tesco claims that money offered by the company can be used by customers against anything in stores, unlike retail competitors Game and Gamestation that offer credit points for their stores for less cash.
