The UK’s biggest video game retailer, GAME, is phasing out trade-ins for physical games next month. Eurogamer first reported the news earlier this week, and a spokesperson for the chain has since confirmed the move in a comment to the BBC. This effectively hands the entire pre-owned market of video games in the UK to rival CeX, which has built up hundreds of stores in the UK dealing in pre-owned video games and electronics. It’s the end of an era, just as digital game sales continue to dominate.
