amazon-logo-200x200.jpg has rolled out a trade-in service that allows users to mail in games in exchange for credit.

The move comes following a similar pre-owned offering on the US Amazon website.

Consumers can currently trade-in Fallout: New Vegas on PS3 for 16.50, Medal of Honor on Xbox 360 for 21, Wii copies of Sonic Colours for 20 and more. Amazon is even offering credit in exchange for PS2, Xbox, PSone and Game Boy Advance games.

Visitors can head to Amazon's video games trade-in page before selecting an item, printing a delivery label and posting the item to the retailer. If the product is in acceptable condition, the customer will be credited with a digital discount voucher that will be deposited into their online account within two days.

Users are limited to trading in 150 worth of items at once, and can only trade up to three copies of the same game within a three-month period.

The service is currently in a beta stage which allows Amazon to test different features before the full service goes live.

Amazon has also posted a list of frequently asked questions about its new pre-owned offering.
