Argos trades vouchers for pre-owned games in UK Argos has "sort of" entered the pre-owned games trade in the United Kingdom. The catalogue-driven retailer is trialing a system where customers get vouchers in return for certain pre-owned video games. Only 27 of the chain's 735 stores are taking part for now, and the company has no plan for expanding the trial yet.
Only selected PS3, Xbox 360, DS and Wii titles are being accepted -- all listed here -- and they have already been assigned a value. Grand Theft Auto IV will get you 11 in vouchers, while Assassin's Creed II will get you 22.

"Argos can confirm it is trialling a trade-in service for video games in a few stores in the North East region commencing in March 2010," an Argos spokesperson told GamesIndustry.biz.

"Customers participating in the trial will receive the trade-in value in Argos gift vouchers giving the customers the choice to purchase any of the 18,000-plus products we sell. We have no firm plans regarding the length of the trial and no future roll out decision will be taken until the trial is concluded."
