HMV slashes pre-owned game prices by 70%, including next-gen

Company reportedly clearing stock as it prepares to exit the used games market

HMV has reportedly dropped the price of all its pre-owned games by 70 per cent.

A tip sent to Frugal Gaming last week suggested that the company was planning to bow out of the used games market and was set to heavily discount all its pre-owned stock as a result.


According to various Twitter users, the sale has kicked off, with a uniform discount of 70 per cent applied to all pre-owned games in every HMV UK shop. The deal applies to games on all systems, including Xbox One and PS4.

One tweet from Twitter user @L1keMike included the image above, showing a number of Xbox One games discounted by 70 per cent, including Call Of Duty Ghosts priced at £13.50 and FIFA 14 for £12.

It is expected the sale will continue until HMV's pre-owned stock is entirely exhausted, at which point the company will cease selling used games.
