"Previously gamers had to take their games into the high street stores in order get a valuation to sell or part exchange. The feedback we received from customers was they felt under pressure to sell their games in high street stores, even if the price was lower than expected, as they didn't want to take them back home.

"The beauty of www.gamemagpie.co.uk ; is there's no pressure to sell games and we try our best to offer buyers and sellers the best prices possible."
