Used Videogame shops

Postby Edaren » 19 May 2011, 15:47

I did a search but didn't find any questions about this.

I have an Xbox 360, and have been told by a few people that there are a bunch of used videogame stores in Ximending. I've never really gotten any specifics before, and seeing as that place is probably my least favorite area of Taipei, wandering around the area for an hour or two doesn't seem like the best way to spend an evening. If there are any other places closer to Xinyi District, that'd be great...I'd prefer to avoid Ximending altogether.

Thanks.

There's a whole bunch of them in the underground under Civic Blvd across from Taipei Main Station.

There are also some in the Digital Plaza near Zhonxiao Xinsheng. And I have found a small one in Donghu as well.

Are you looking to buy or sell? Most video game shops sell used games and some sell used consoles. Xi Men Ding has a Wan Nien (萬年) Building with 4 or 5 shops located on the 3rd and 4th floors. If you are selling, I tend to get the best prices from the shop underneath the Shin Kong Mitsukoshi Building across the street from Taipei Main Station.

Has anyone seen a copy of Rock Band 3 around? I have the guitar and drums and a couple games for it but really want that one as well.

You generally can't send someone more than a couple of full-size digital photos as an e-mail attachment; those files are too big, and they'll bounce back to you. (Instead, use iPhone or Picasa--photo-organizing programs that can automatically scale down photos in the process of e-mailing them.)
