HMV Sale Knocks 70% Off All Pre-Owned Games, Including Next Gen

Get yer next gen bargains 'ere!

The news from the Twittersphere is that HMV are to stop selling pre-owned games and have wiped a massive 70% off all their current stock on all formats, including next-gen titles.

Industry bod, Mike Adebajo, tweeted this a few moments ago:

He had discovered the sale at the Oxford Street store in London and had purchased this lot for £80, saving himself a massive £191.


We suggest you head down to your nearest HMV, assuming there is one near you.

Thanks to Mike for the tip.

    Wow, that makes most of the next gen games less than £20 each. What a way to get a bargain. Now then, what about pre-owned consoles? :P

    That’s worth a stock up even for non launch/early adopters at those prices!

    this was mentioned by Frugal Gaming last week. I have too many games as it it so I couldn’t be arsed to get down to my local one this morning.

    Most people are buying just to trade in again.

    Good shout, just wish I’d known sooner as my local (Cwmbran) only had old copies of COD, FIFA, and Battlefield left. I did get Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed for £4 though… Plus there were loads of Xbox One games there if that floats your boat!

    managed to get into leeds about half 12, no ps4 or xbone games left, few ps3 games and 360 games left. managed to get arkham origins on ps3 for £7.49. I think you would have had to be first in the door to have got any ps4 or xbone games! Mike is a lucky guy!
