CEX, hmmm, not quite in the nudge nudge wink wink zone of GameSexChange but getting there.
And with the likes of RAGE in existence, who needs anywhere else???
I mean, the a/c can only take so much pressure!!

I think you'll find he meant bought by someone else.
A little too muck literal mindedness in these parts.
Or is that mindlessness....
I'll check..


And for the record.
If I have my eye on Batman Returns for the Snes, run to the ATM, come back to find someone has just bought it, all bets are off.

I'm like the Terminator, I'll hunt that fecker down!


A mate did that to me many moons ago with Sonic R for the Saturn.
Didn't forgive him for ages.
Of course, when I finally played it, I phoned him to thank him!

Anyways, this place is going to be a warzone when it comes to new stock.
Bit like the Rage, really.

What is the RAGE? Heard about it for the first this week, because they were having gigs for Record Store Day. Never got a chance to go, though.

What do they sell?

Secondhand retro games, from Commodore to SNES to Dreamcast.

It is, in short, fantastic.

Visited CEX on Liffey Street this afternoon and I have to say I was impressed. Shelves are nice to browse, the games are organised well and they have a good range.

Furthermore and perhaps most importantly the prices for games did not feel extortionate at all. It really puts the likes of Game and Gamestop to shame, where all the games look second-hand because they are inexplicably allowed to remove factory seals off games marked as new. I'm much more down with a place like this.

Stopped in today, nice selection. Has PS2 and Xbox1 but no Gamecube as far as I could see.

Also my friend told me of their site (http://uk.webuy.com/sell/) where they list what they will pay for and what price they sell all stuff at. Only in £ but hopefully there will be a € version at some stage, good for getting a rough idea of prices.

popped in today, nice layout, easy to browse.

prices were a bit hit & miss, but potential for some bargains

think alot of the "gems" were gone, but found one: King Of Fighters - Maximum Impact For PS2, for €4
it was in a cardboard sleeve with a huge booklet that was in the sleeve rather than the box & a bonus disc

overall I can see them doing very well, and although I'm not in town that often, every time I'm in there I'll pop in

yeah most prices seem to be Uk price plus about 20% exchange rate, handy to get ballpark figures before bringing bags full of games into them to trade in

hopefully the irish version of the site will be up running sooner rather than later, then I think they'll really take off over here

Was in a few days ago, hadn't heard of their stores before but was pleasantly surprised! Really nicely arranged and nothing's in your face. Spotted a few things - that I'm unwilling to name for obvious reasons! - I'm hoping are still there next trip in.

Hope they do well, we need more of their like round here.

That store is seriously dangerous to my wallet!

Picked up Brutal Legend on Xbox 360 for €7 and the limited edition version of the Appleseed manga for €7 too!

Spotted a few others I wouldn't mind picking up either, but trying to spare the poor wallet a bit.
