Went into the store at Rathbone Place and Camden Town today. I discovered that most of the PS1 games had been removed from the shelves.

I went into asda today as a friend of mine told me they where selling original x box games, and they where but £20 for abe's exodus (i think it was that one could have been odessy) is a bit much, i expected it to be £4.99 at the most. :lol:

Just been in my local Gamestation to see if they had any xbox bargains and they had moved the shop around(This is at least 10 times this year i have gone in and they have moved the shop around :? )Couldn't find the xbox games so asked and was told they aren't stocking xbox or gamecube games no more.They only had 2 small shelves of ps2 games with about 20 games on also :(

CEX gives second hand game shops a bad name. I make sure that any dics brought into my independant store are in clean condition, i then spend time removing stickers from cases and cleaning boxes. I also test the games to ensure they are 100% and still manage to under-cut the CEX prices. Sometimes i get discs cleaned knowing that they work 100% just so that they appear mint. Customers obviously prefer buying used games that look and appear as new rather than games that look as though they have been pulled out from the bottom of a bin bag! There are thoose that sell games with a passion and there are thoose who have nothing but a greed for money.
