    They don't even dust the tops of megadrive games. So lazy. But with u on printed covers.

    I glanced at the ps3 while I was in there too, ton of reprinted covers. Couple this with Grainger Games possibly going under GAME is going to be the only retailer left :(

    ninty72 as long people don't resell these CeX copies on eBay it should be fine.

    Vita_Girl that's the problem with these kind of repros though, people will try to resell them and its just adding an extra layer of complexity/risk on to any used game buying. There's no marking indicating that they are repros except their thankfully noticeable quality up close, but take a blurry ebay picture of one...will you be able to tell the difference?

    I've got to go through my games at some point as in the past I've bought a few from cex before I knew about this. I'd like to think I'd spot it tho so hopefully I didnt miss any.

    Tbh from a distance you could miss it, up close they look over saturated and are normally cut off too low and the print isn't quite ad good quality but its better than it used to be. It's only going to get hard to tell if they get better printers

    Billybobbean yup, I did check my Vita games from CeX UK and the one from Netherlands but luckily all the covers are legit.

    And to be honest I hope it stays that way, once in a while I do get some games via via from CeX UK (they do not send abroad) because the prices are lower in the UK for some games.

    Was in cex today. This stood out like a sore thumb.

    Oh my! Seems like they may be getting loose vita games and decided to make cases for them rather then selling them without a game case. Rayman cover is cut-off at the bottom

    Roscoe Jones that is also mostly the case, but CeX does this to ask a CiB price for a loose cart.

    They print a cover to sell a game as "complete", there was on YouTube even an example of a Vita game in a 3ds case...
