“Get on down to Gamestation!”

published 15/05/2009

Frendly staff, lots of pre-owned games.

Because I'm female I don't know about games?

My review is based on Gamestation, Harlow, Essex. Our Gamestation is not very large in size at all but is very well stocked considering. They stock the usual consoles (Wiis, Xbox 360s, PS3s etc) and all of the games and accessories that go with these consoles. They have new sections and pre-owned...

Gamestation is one of the biggest games retailers on the highstreet, probably after game - but since they are both owned by the same company now together they are the only place to go for all your gaming needs. Gamestation has stores all over the country (although considerably fewer since the...

Gamestation is a video game store that sells both new and old games and a few other items. They sell games for all the major consoles and also sell retro stuff like GameCube and Play station 1 games. Their prices for new games are not very good and are roughly the RRP but the preowned games are...

Being a great lover of all things gaming I'm always shopping around to get the latest games and consoles. There are quite a few different places to chose out there for your gaming purchases, some that focus just on games such as Gamestation and GAME and some that sell other things too such as HMV...

When I saw this open about 2 years ago in my area, I was pleased that another gaming shop is there to rival once known as Electronics Boutique (now known as GAME). If you are thinking of trading your old games that you got bored of playing, didn't like or ones that you have completed, then go to...

“Gamestation Review”

published 05/04/2006

Thousands cheap games

Payments for trading in poor

Gamestation is a second hand (+ new) computer game (and dvds) shop that has been going for approx 15 years. Gamestation originally started selling mainly second hand games - people bring in old games and get cash for them - then others can buy them at slightly higher prices. Its a brill idea and...

Buying retro games from a GameStation store seems to be a thing of the past (at least so in the 2 Glasgow City Centre branches). Soon after GAME had bought them (on 2nd May 2007), the numbers of retro gaming goods reached a peak. Now, 2008, and for many months they've been reduced to only a...

More than a month before the Wii was due for launch, I was deciding where to order my Wii from. At that point, I stopped at a GameStation branch, where I spoke to a very friendly member of staff. I was told "order from us, we guarantee delivery on the release date and as were a proper shop if you...

Well...what can i say There are a number of Highstreet Game suppliers, the main 3 being HMV, GAME and Gamestation. Now, all of these three shop chains are owned by Debenhams the Designer Clothes Shop. Now, you'd think owning the 3 top Game suppliers in england would make these shops good? Wrong...

Canterbury branch of gamestation provided totally unacceptable service today... they even breached my statutory rights by refusing me a refund on psp game that was faulty (wouldn't play in my psp). The manager said some classic statements, "Move aside, you're blocking up my shop, or I shall have you removed by security","If you don't leave the shop I'm calling the police","Move over there so I can speak to you where the other customers cannot hear","We don't refund faulty products until we have tested them ourselves" What a total loser. Needless to said I'm going straight to the top with my complaint, and I will get a refund and win this case or sue them. AVOID IT!

Think a lot depends on the store in question. My own local Gamestation is literally 2 doors down from Game making a comparison between the two very easy. Whilst the Game store feels a little more polished, Gamestation is the one I always use. The staff have always been friendly and helpful in...
