Game offers pre-orders on pre-owned titles

Buy used games before they get used

SANS - Survey on application security programs

Game has launched a scheme for customers to order pre-owned games before the title has even hit the shelves.

Registered visitors to the Game website can place orders and will be put into a queue. As new releases come back into the shop as used copies, they will be mailed out to the people waiting in the virtual line. Each title is priced at £34, a saving of £16 on their full RRP.

Game, which recently started selling Xbox DLC content in store, are only offering triple-A titles such as Crysis 2, Homefront, Dragon Age II, Shift II: Unleashed and Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 as part of the scheme, which for the time being will only run on a trial basis, MCV reports.

With so many EA titles on offer, how will EA's Online Pass affect proceedings? Surely when a customer has bought a new code to get online with their game, they may as well have purchased it new, a week or so earlier? ®
