    I just got an XBOX for Christmas and have now begun to accumulate more games than I need. I trade some, but sothers I'd just prefer to sell-back/trade-in to the local stores.

    What is the typical buy-back percentage stores such as EB, Software etc., FYE, and local shops buy games back at and who has the best deal?

    I know sports games lose their value fairly quickly (I got $16 store credit for Madden 2003 last month at Software Etc.), but what about greatest hits titles and premium titles (Splinter, Nightfire, Vice City, and the like)?

    I've learned from past mistakes. If you were to sell any titles now, go for e-bay!

    That's another option that could work that I was not aware of. Whatever works for you.

    I've actually made a couple of trades this week. I'm still curious as to what different stores give back on used games. Anyone?

    At EB, I sold Metal Gear Solid: Substance and got $17 CDN. This was when it was priced for $40 used, 50 new.
