Pre-Played Info


Our Pre-Played program is offered to our clients whilst complying with the second hand goods act of South Africa.



We'll give you even more for your old games! Trade in your old games when collecting a valid pre-order, and we'll give you an extra 30% trade value on those old games. Just bring your old games and ID to store within 7 days of of release of your pre-ordered game, and we'll take care of the rest.








Trade in your clocked PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch games with us! Your trade-in value can be used against any in-store purchase at time of trading in your old games.

BT Games will not trade any PC, PSP, PS2, PS3, Xbox 360, NDS, 3DS, Wii, WiiU, PS Vita, LeapFrog or any other format games due to end user license agreements or demand.


How to:

  1. Visit your closest store with the game/s you wish to trade-in and an accepted form of identification.
  2. We will then make you an offer subject to the above terms and conditions.
  3. Once the games have been checked, your account will be credited with the relevant amount.

Terms and Conditions:

  1. Games must be originals. We do not want pirated or copied software.
  2. Games must be in original boxes with all applicable manuals intact.
  3. Game discs must not be cracked or excessively scratched.
  4. All trade values will only be given in store after the games have been checked by a sales assistant.
  5. By law, we are unable to trade in PC games. We also do not trade in PC, PSP, PS2, PS3, Xbox 360, NDS, 3DS, Wii, WiiU, PS Vita, LeapFrog or any other format games at this time, and these excluded formats may be updated at any time.
  6. For all purchases and trade-ins using our pre-played system, we need a valid South African ID, passport, or driver’s license (or a valid passport for foreign nationals).
  7. Games created for bundling, usually branded BUNDLE COPY or NOT FOR RESALE and/or with no barcode on the game box, may not be traded in.

Buy the latest games or games that are no longer available new, at greatly reduced prices, through our unique PRE-PLAYED system.


Well besides getting a great price for a game that may or may not be available new, you can be assured that all games on our PRE-PLAYED system are in good working condition. Not only do we refuse to buy damaged and badly scratched disks, games on our PRE-PLAYED system are cleaned and buffed to ensure that you won't go home and experience the disappointment of your console flatly refusing to play it.
