There’s no official word from GAME Group on this, so everthing’s a little bit anecdotal (and I went for a sandwich rather than walking into town to check, sorry) but it’s all starting to match up.
Naturally, this seems be to branch specific, and by that I mean that some stores might be kicking out everything dirt cheap and others aren’t budging at all, but for some pre-owned bargains it’s probably worth a look.
Let us know in the comments or via Twitter what you find if you head down.
In addition, rumours are starting to emerge that it’s looking like some new (as in, not pre-owned) titles will be next to go on sale – everything’s being done manually by the store staff (which must be horribly demoralising for them) so timing might be important – and then we’re also hearing that pre-owned hardware might be on the cards too.
This won’t be new stock, so don’t get excited.
The stuff that’s stickered up on the back (like brand new PS Vita games) won’t be discounted, as they’re owned by Sony and various other publishers, but you might well find some treats, even if the games in question are a few months old or so.
At the least, Child of Eden and Vanquish are both apparently shifting for £2.98, which is a superb bargain if you’ve not got them already.
We’ve reached out to GAME’s PR company for details.
