Looking back at the games i traded away and the points i received, now that goozex has switched to buyers market "per-say" i would rebuy them. i might do that now, Let UFC go for 1000 points, once it drops to 700 or so request it and i profit 300 points, id just have to go a few months without ufc.


That's a great strategy that everyone should use. I plan on doing that with Killzone 2. I'm almost done with the single player and I'm going to play the multi-player for a few more weeks. I'll get 1000 points for it and then pick it up when it's down to 400 or 500 points and enjoy the free games I got for basically lending it out for a couple months.

I just received a "half" positive feedback (only gave me 5 points) for a disc only game. The issue cited was the "overall package quality". Considering the disc was pristine and placed in a jewel case, should there really be any other issues on a disc only game? Anyone else run into this? I sent an e-mail to feedback@goozex.com for now, but I'm just wondering if this is something people have run into before.

Not entirely Goozex related, but I sent out three trades for Goozex via USPS on Monday all via First Class Mail. Each have only left my are Wednesday the 17th according to the tracking. That's two days sitting in the Post Office of tracking info is accurate. Maybe increased traffic from Father's Day? I just feel bad for the people waiting for them.

Sounds like he's being anal for no real reason. You're going to need to dispute the feedback if you want the full positive. You'll then need to escalate it to Goozex to actually get it changed.

Not sure why point changes are happening earlier, but this past batch was great for buyers.

Ah, thank you for that information. So was sending the e-mail to feedback@goozex.com not the correct step to take at first? Is there a set function for disputing feedback? I'm not familiar with the procedure because I've had full positives until now, so any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Hey, no prob. I understand the confusion. Goozex doesn't make it clear how they handle disputes. Actually, contacting them might have been the appropriate step since you usually have the negative show up in your offer list so you can dispute it. In this case, since a positive was left, it just closes the transaction automatically. I'd wait for a response before doing anything else which you probably isn't much since it was a positive.

points really dont matter then 80 to 90% of those games are not even up for trades

FF 7 is still overpriced at 850 pts (43.50)

nice lis though

850 points for FFVII is really steep but diff'rent strokes.

Has anyone gotten or sent a game for over 1000 points? I like the idea behind it but I haven't seen anything move except for one copy of the MGS4 LE. I'm still in the active queue for SFIV Collector's Edition (PS3) and Tales of Vesperia LE but I haven't seen any movement even though prices are going over 1000.

Maybe Goozex should have some sort of automated e-mail that gets sent after a game hasn't been traded for 60 days. Everyone that has it on hold will get a simple question of how much they would be willing to let it go for. The system could then average the responses and make a new price.

The system really only works when there's volume. No volume and the algorithm can't really set a fair market price.

that's because the game isn't trading. or that feedback is too slow.

People are slow shipping.. it brings everything down. The worst part is that they never ship.

Penalty is worthless once someone has done about 2-3 trades... another trade will wipe it out. Penalties need to stick it to them. -points or -tonage of fb

Your trades will sit forever... because there are users ahead of you first, and if there isn't any wants, it'll never go.

the demand is slow, and goozex needs more users.

Which makes me all the angrier that I got matched to trade my Gears 2 LE within an hour when I first listed it and then the guy cancels on me.

There are wants, for all three condition types, of the two items i'm trying to push. I get people are ahead of me, but if people get matched, and there's still people who want it, wouldn't it find more people and move me in position? Or unless the page is misleading that at least three people (since all three conditions are wanted) want the game.

They could very well be 'sellers' that ignore the trade, take days to finally cancle out and then it's your turn, and they get bumped back to the next position.

I am not sure how it works, but sellers can screw the system too I think. if there are ones ahead of you that won't trade in, accept it, you're stuck I think.

it really needs to be fixed better.

I've had Pro Race Driver-PS2 available for over a year at 100 points. I didn't pay attention to it for the last month or so, checked it and it's up to 300. The game hasn't traded at all in the US in over a year but Goozex thinks the game should triple in cost. If I couldn't get rid of it at 100 then 300 should be no problem.:roll:

if you got a psp game where you can push in the front of the plastic casing but the game still plays would you say that is a broken game?

game still plays fine but you can here it spinning around the case cause the plastic seal is broken (the white part isnt broke but you can push in the plastic that goes around the game...

seller saying it should not count as a broken game since the game is still playable but i got to wonder how long would it be playable..

also tired of people sending out PSP games with broken Cases (the game just flops around in the case)

You mean the clear plastic? I would consider that broken since it has the potential of opening and becoming unplayable. I would think it could still cause some damage even if not completely open. Either way, the seller shouldn't have listed it.

That's my only serious problem with Goozex. Games that have no trading volume usually have a value that's completely screwed up. It's even weirder when a game just came out and Goozex prices it over MSRP. KOF '98 UM could still be found in stores for $20 and they had it priced at 500 points until a couple weeks ago. It's finally down to 300 so I went ahead and activated it before it really got rare and the price went up again.

I love the concept of Goozex but the formula they use for determining point value is flawed. Another example, I have PS2 demos of Athens 2004, The Getaway:Black Monday, Jak X and Red Faction II that are priced at 300 each. Seriously? Demos! Maybe they just need to do a better job of tracking games. An evergrowing database of games requires more and more employees.

Also, I emailed them a few days ago about Army Men:RTS-PC being unplayable (any copy) but haven't heard a peep back from them. I suggested that the game be removed from the database since installation of it can't be completed but no response.

Giving Goozex a try now, having heard good things about it. I have a lot of games just gathering dust and will never play again so I may as well trade them away. Had 2 games requested within hours (they were high demand games though).

The 2 trade limit really sucks, I have a lot of stuff to get rid of but I'm less inclined to list the lower point games so that I can get more points quicker.

Yeah I'm just starting on Goozex too...and starting on a sour note.

I got the free 100 points and 1 token to start, so I requested Saints Row, got matched, all that stuff. It's been about 19 days now and still no game and no response to PM's. I left a negative feedback. Will Goozex take care of it since I left a negative feedback so I can get my points/token back, or do I also have to e-mail them or something as well?

I also just sent out Skate 2 for 950 points, so I'll be looking to load up on games soon as well.

As long as the seller doesn't dispute the feedback, it will automatically close in your favor and you should receive a refund within a few business days.

The demo disc thing is crazy. I noticed a few months ago that the OXM discs were listed at 900 points each, now they are down to about 300-400. Still, who is going to "pay" that? I clicked on a few to check out the demand and most read like 65-80 available/0-2 requested. So, good luck to those trying to trade these out.
