    definately the best place to pick up second hand games - i would avoid their electronic items tho, way over-priced. one example is: blackberry curve 8520 was £20 more expensive than a new one 2 doors down.

    Very good prices on a diversity of platforms (Xbox 360, PC, DS and PS2+3 games, DVDs) as well as gaming consoles. However, I only give CeX four stars due to the saying If you pay peanuts, you get monkeys, which seems to be true in this case.
    I bought two DVDs; individually they were £4 and £6, totalling up to £10. I handed the woman serving me a £20 note, to which she gave me my receipt and wandered off to check on stock. I stood their puzzled with seemingly nothing in return. I checked my wallet incase I'd stupidly forgotten she'd just given me my £10 change, but nothing was in there. I managed to get her attention as she was walking past, confronted her about it and, completely emotionless, she checked the prices of the items, went into the cash register and handed me a 10 note.
    So just be aware of receiving your correct change if shopping in here! It might just be this one member of staff letting the rest down, but I'd still be mindful all the same.

History

Established in 1992.

"A long, long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away - well, London to be exact, as we couldn't find Tatooine - we had a firm belief that there was a second hand market for computers, gadgets and games. Increasing obsolescence was rapidly increasing the need to recycle.

We couldn't afford the most exotic kit or get rid of our old kit. What's a geek to do?

We wanted a retailer where one could pick up second hand oldies-but-still-goodies at knockdown prices. And we genuinely all cared about the environment - we're hippies, but dressed unhippyishly stupid so as to not admit it.

We also didn't want a store stuffing rubbish in our faces, a retailer that colluded with software houses and hardware manufacturers to hard flog what they couldn't shift. We would sell everything at the market price, if something doesn't sell, we reduce the price and if it sells too well, we increase the price. Simple market economics.

Today CeX operates in Australia, India, Ireland, Portugal, Spain, UK and USA."
