GAME Pre Owned Pre Orders

Published on March 4th, 2011

UK retailer has started offering pre-orders for pre-owned versions of upcoming releases.

The scheme allows you to pre-order second hand copies of new releases at £4-£6 lower than the price of a brand new copy, with copies becoming available a week after release.

A variety of pre-owned titles are already available to pre-order from GAME’s website for £33.99, including this week’s big release Fight Night Champion, plus Dragon Age II, Crysis 2, Homefront, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12, Shift 2: Unleashed, WWE All Stars and Virtua Tennis 4.

Of course, it’s worth remembering that if you do decide to pre-order a pre-owned version, you may be missing out on the Online Passes and exclusive content offered by new copies.

Many publishers have raised their concerns with sales of pre-owned games in recent years, with THQ’s Cory Ledesma telling MCV that publishers "get cheated" whenever a pre-owned game is sold.

However, earlier this month, GAME’s head of public relations Neil Ashurt suggested to Videogamer.com that selling pre-owned copies was actually beneficial to publishers.

"It’s not about taking money away from a publisher," he said. "It’s actually about making their product – and the next big product and the next big product after that – accessible to as many of their consumer base as possible."
