Used Gaming Shop

Been here awhile, my son is a HUGE gamer and we have yet to find a used video game store here in Geneva. Anyone know of any? Seen board game shops and most other threads are very old...... As we all know everything is expensive here and it would be nice to purchase used games and sell old ones my son no longer plays.

Re: Used Gaming Shop

I don't know any used game shop. I order my games from thehut.com or play.com which is a lot cheaper than the store prices here. Another plus is that you get your games in English then instead of German / French.
Used games you can sell on ricardo.ch

Re: Used Gaming Shop

i can't remember the name but i remember there being a website where you list used games and dvd's in exchange for points and those points can be used to purchase other games.

Re: Used Gaming Shop

I think the only place you'll find that buys/sells used games will be shops like Cash Converters.

Re: Used Gaming Shop

There's one called Virtual Dream, though I've only been to the one in Nyon.

Another one in Nyon sells them very cheap, though doesn't have the best selection of games, so I guess it depends on the gaming system. In any case, it's called Cash Pay.

I only have experience with PS3 games, and they all run fine on a Swiss PS3. Make sure you order one game at the time and stay under 64 CHF total to avoid custom charges.
