Tesco to roll-out game trade-in service across UK

Get in-store credit for your old console games

Tesco is rolling out a game trade-in scheme across a number of its supermarkets in the UK.

The scheme was initially trialled in the Basildon branch and proved successful so was introduced in 60 other branches, including Staines, Chelmsford and Gatwick.

Games for consoles including the Playstation 3 and the Xbox 360 can be traded-in for credit that can be used against any products on sale in the supermarket.

Gamers can expect to get £12 for a PS3 version of 2010 FIFA World Cup, while Mario Kart for the Wii will net you £17. The Xbox 360 version of Red Dead Redemption is worth £19.

The supermarkets will offer the pre-owned games for sale to other customers.
