Music Magpie Review
Music Magpie is owned by Entertainment Magpie Ltd who are based in Macclesfield, England. They were the very first site in the UK to offer cash to their users for recycling console games, CDs and DVDs.
Everyday thousands of people use the site to not only free up some space in their homes but also to help the environment. Any discs that are recycled are made into different items including coat hangers and car headlamps. In the last year alone enough CDs, DVDs and console games have been recycled to stretch all the way from London to Lagos, Nigeria! Since launching 3 years ago in 2008 they have already paid out millions of pounds to their customers.
The site currently accepts discs for many different formats including Playstation 2, Playstation 3, Xbox, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS and Sony PSP. The great thing about Music Magpie is that you can find the value of your unwanted game by searching by the barcode number quickly and easily.
