The most was for my PS3 40gb it had been repaired once in 3 years but was on its last legs, Blockbuster gave me 100 against a new 120gb slim. Gameswise I traded MW3 about a week after release and got 35 at CEX, the smallest amount was about 2 for hitman 2 with no instuctions.

A couple of quid for an Xbox copy of Morrowind, this was at the very beginning of the current gen. I think the most was when I got about 170 for my Gamecube and some games when trading in against an Xbox. mind you, that was when Gamestation used to give great trade in prices.

I was offered 2 for Tomb Raider Underworld on the PS3. I didn't take it, to be honest I loved the game I just had the HD Trilogy collection so I didn't need it anymore, but considering how many ways in which Tomb Raider Underworld has been given away / discounted over the past few years I'm not surprised the trade-in value was so low.

I found some old PS2 games I'd never use again and got only 20p for pro evo I think it was.

Before xmas 2011 HMV were giving 35 for new releases up to about 2 weeks old so I bought a game, completed it then traded it for the next one about 5/6 times.

20 cent for an old fifa game. I think it could have been 08 and I would have traded it in 2010. Thats the lowest.

The highest was 30 for Arkham City but that wasn't that long after I bought it. Loved the game but completed it fairly quickly and I wanted Skyrim so I traded.

(I don't trade very often tho. My catalogue of games is huge.)

I don't do trade ins but I did once sell my snes for 120, I shopped around for the best deal between three shops and managed to jump it from 60 to 120.

I have looked up some of my games on the CEX site to trade in and I will only get 50p or a pound for them, I just cant bring myself to trade them in for that little money when I could probably find more down the back of the couch .

The best trades I have receive have been games where I have been given more money trading in than I actually paid for the game in the first place.

You will be lucky if you get around 30 for a ps3 40gb, the price for trtade has dropped dramaticly in the last few months

I have a ps3 60gb, and was offered 60, compared to last year price 95

Lowest was probably about 1.50-2 for a PSP game.

Highest was 40 for Saints Row 2 traded in against Resident Evil 5.

Lowest about 75p for PES 08.

Highest, took MW2 in (nearly two years after release) to trade against Skyrim and got just over 20.

I sold my 280 xbox 360 for 400 a week after release. I did the same a week later and that basically paid for my 360 when I bought another one after the Christmas panic was over.

Worst price was 50p for ghost recon advanced fighter at game.
