Newsbrief: Amazon UK is shutting down its video game trade-in scheme, with the online retailer announcing it will stop accepting trade-in submissions after August 31. 

Though Amazon has neglected to offer any reasons for the service's closure, it has assured shoppers that all trade-in orders submitted online before or on August 31 will be processed as normal, as long as they are dispatched within seven days of the initial submission. 

Trade-ins submitted after that date, however, will be returned directly to customers.
