    Second hand video games stores in Hong Kong

    I'm looking for a second hand video game store which stocks hardware. I'm very keen on buying 2x second hand PS3/PS4 controllers.

    I live in causeway bay but am prepared to travel if necessary.

    Any help would of be great! Thanks

    I don't recommend buying any secondhand hardware in HK as 99% of it is a mix of parts taken from broken consoles and in some cases blacklisted ones. I also do not recommend buying any parallel/grey market stuff to save a few bucks as many of them are refurbs. The worst offenders are in Golden arcade, SSP and Mongkok.

    You can find used games on yahoo auctions, @imparanoic runs some facebook game groups or try the shops in Golden Arcade, Shamshui po or Mongkok.

    Wanchai road, 188 games center has several used games and game hardware shops on the first floor. Don't confuse this with 298, this is on Wanchai road, BEHIND 298

    Just saw an app on my FB wall for a selling/buying app. Carousell, down load and play on it, has a section for Playstation games and consoles.

    What are the prices these days on the FB groups?. Stores were dumping PS3/X360 games for $20-$50 a while back but lately I have seen prices as high as $150 each. Yahoo seems to be dying as well.

    around HK$40 to 50 for the better games, some ones are same price as ps4 version, ie, resident evil hd remaster and alien isolation around HK$100 (stores at HK$200 used in wan chai, rip off prices, )

    i just checked in wan chai, some stores still selling at HK$100-150 used, even the common ones, but the better stores have better prices, x360 marginally lower price due to region coding

    nevertheless, some great bargains, but rarer games are slowly creeping up in price while cheap and really common ones are becoming next to worthless

    They are simply getting greedy lately since many X360 games are going backward compatible hence region free..something Sony dropped the ball on. The game biz is dying in HK and much of Asia as gamers are game-sharing their online purchases. The game shops in HK offer low prices for used games yet sell em high which is another reason locals are giving up on them. These days only AAA titles are moving and many stores have stopped stocking all new releases.

    I have given up on local stores and simply buy the game code off amazon a few weeks after release when the price hits $39.
