The user must change the mentality when buying technology. We always bet on the new, buying brand new, ignoring that there are second-hand items that still have a lot of life ahead of them. In this way, we will be saving some money, while contributing to the environment, reusing existing products. Video games fall squarely into the category of refurbished product from which you can continue to get a lot out of it. What to do when a game has been completed and prevent it from getting dust? Then exchange it for another used one. What if we don't have any used? Well, we look at one of the online stores that we propose below.
One of the most popular video game, console and accessory stores among gamers has a section dedicated to the 'pre-owned' category . You only have to access their website from this link that will take you directly to that section. You can find video games by applying a personalized search filter: by saga, theme, manufacturer, platform ... you have all the elements in the sidebar. If you spend more than 30 euros, the shipping costs are free. If not, you will have to pay an additional 2 euros for standard postage.
We have limited the search for video games in Game to 20 euros . We put here some of the most attractive titles that we can buy today and their price below, so that you get an idea of what amounts they handle on this website.
- FIFA 19. Version for PlayStation 4 that appeared in stores back in September 2018 and that you can buy at a price of 15 euros.
- Star Wars: Battlefront. Game set in the saga of the most famous galaxies of all time. 10 euros.
- AER: memories of old. An adventure game that was critically acclaimed thanks to its story and graphics. 7 euros used.
- Uncharted 4: A Thief's End. One of the most popular video game sagas at your fingertips for a price of 10 euros.
In a store specializing in second-hand technology items, you could not miss a large section of used video games. On their website you can see the price at which they sell it or, if you prefer, what it would cost you in an exchange. You can also sell yours , but for this you must go to a store in your city. Their shipping costs are € 1.50 except for an item of more than 45 euros. On this page we advise you not to buy the games since, on multiple occasions, they will cost you even more expensive than new ones. In CeX, it is more interesting for you to trade games. For example, if you leave your old game Red Dead Redemption you can buy it for 18 euros, while a new one has a price of 30 euros.
Other examples of exchange that are worthwhile:
- Luigi's Mansion 3 for Nintendo Switch, 35 euros in exchange (new on Amazon is priced at 65 euros)
- NBA 2K20, 27 euros in exchange, 35 euros new in online stores.
- Call of Duty: Black Ops, 6 euros in exchange, 28 euros new in stores.
Obviously we needed to include Wallapop on a used goods shopping list. Wallapop is great if you are looking for a specific video game, from a vendor in your own city that you want to meet. However, if you want to take a tour of its section to simply see what there is, Wallapop has a section dedicated to consoles and video games . In the screenshot below you can see where it is. You can also access from this link.
Anyway, we continue to recommend that, in Wallapop, it is better that you put the name of the video game you are looking for . Next, filter the search by area, to buy it in your same city, and that's it.
On this page you can find from users who only sell one game to those who have a large collection and make it available to potential customers at interesting prices. For example, this user sells games for PS3, PS4 and PSP for 7 euros a unit.
A colorful website very much in the style of 8-bit video games like 'Mario Bros.' By hovering the mouse over the 'games' section, a large window will open in which we can see the different consoles that this page works with. We can find from the most popular like Nintendo DS or XBOX One to the most unknown. This website aims to teach the user hidden treasures, forgotten games, being able to find them at a good price. Shipping costs are free on orders over 40 euros . If it is less than 45 euros, orders sent by Correos will have a price of 4.5 euros and 7.5 euros if it is by Nacex. For the latter it is more expensive because orders only take between 24 and 48 hours.
In this store we can find the ' Call of Duty III: Black Ops ' for a price of 12 euros and the Crash Bandicoot trilogy for 25 euros. But the most interesting thing about this page is, without a doubt, the possibility of being able to buy video games from old consoles such as Master System, or Mega Drive.
In this store you will find a large multitude of used and pre-owned video games. Although the design of the web is not the most attractive that we have come across, the web page is fully functional and it is easy to navigate through it. On one side you have the console brands to filter game searches. Shipping costs are 3.50 euros for shipping by Post in 3-8 days.
On this website you can find, above all, discontinued games such as NBA Live 06 for XBOX for 5 euros. A good way to find that game that you missed in your day and that you can no longer find new in regular stores.
