    Trading in a serviced XBOX

    So went into Gamestation and wanted to trade my XBOX in. Now the XBOX was purchased from CEX and was serviced before it was bought i.e. it has CEX stickers which cover the screw holes to show it has been serviced by CEX. Gamestation refused to take it in saying it had been opened up regardless of whoever even a reputable place.

    Is this normal or a one-off? The XBOX is fully functional and in top condition.

    Its normal.

    Its not the fact that its been opened - its just hassle if its resold and it goes faulty.
    Hard to check if it’s had any serious tampering with it that could cause a potential fire, for example. You wouldn’t believe the number of “wanabe fixers” out there that will take a screwdriver to anything, screwing it up in the process.
