yeah...boo to not being able to return games...but I can understand why...every place I've had to deal with something like that only lets you take opened software and exchange it for the same title.Originally Posted by KrisKhaos
I -do- make use of the whole trade-in for cash or credit concept, granted the amount you make back isn't much, and while there are programs for things like double credit, it still takes a good few to rack up enough for a brand new title...
but consider I only do it about once a year if not less often, so when I go in I can easily rack up maybe $50-70 a trip, which if that gets me 1 less game I have to pay for, then that's exactly what it is...
look at it this way: do you really expect to be able to take new software, use it and abuse it and expect to get enough credit to make almost a 1:1 trade on a mint condition title? That's how they make their money...and if feeding that pig gets me the chance to drop a little less money on a title I might be sketchy on, then so be it.
and I loved the comment about the shell game...being a "practitioner" of said shell game, trust me when I say it's nothing like that...you will make far more money trading in games than you will betting the shells when I'm behind them.
I never ask you to understand, I only ask you to believe.
Yes, it is the same here and I clearly understand why as well.Originally Posted by Magus
Sure, that is one less game you have to pay for, but that's about 5 to 20 different games you are out and unable to play again without acquiring them again first. Personally I don't like that option, but that is just me.Originally Posted by Magus
No, I don't expect anything from them.Originally Posted by Magus
As far as them making money, to me that is how I LOOSE money, money I've already invested into a game. Instead of just buying whatever is fresh and new, I take a different approach, and evaluate a game before purchasing it. Unfortunately for people like brendo and others this option isn't so much an option unfortunately, and while brendo may not take back his own games, I can't blame others for doing so if they are unable to fully evaluate them first.
However once I buy it I will own it for a lifetime, at least until it is stolen, lost, or broken.
hahaha.... Well I know this game well, and know the best way to win is not to play. Same reason I avoid EBgames/GameStop and Pawn Shops. To each there own I always like to say.Originally Posted by Magus
