Right now available on 3DS: Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Paper Mario: Sticker Star, Pro Evolution Soccer 2011, and Resident Evil: Revelations. All available right now via the Exchange. http://www.goozex.co...sp?platform=212

 

Instant trading-wise there is nothing, but if you check "Recently Traded" for 3DS there are two pages worth of results.

 

Goozex is far from dead. I got Planet Terror and the first Assassin's Creed coming to me, and I sent out Duke Nukem Forever and the Excel Saga DVD series to get over 3,000 points.

 

At the current rate, the Exchange service is getting me an item every 1-2 weeks.

I like the auctions better than the old instant trading mainly because it is more realistic about worth of a game.  COD barely gets 50-100 points but a rare game now can be traded for thousands of points instead of the past 1000 max.

Still doing well over at Goozex by receiving Black Ops 2, Planet Terror (DVD), and Dynasty Warriors 6. I also have Dance Central on the way.

Currently at 850 points.

Got Dance Central with Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 on the way. Sent in some titles and got 300 points. I have two auctions going and I'm at 1,500 points in under 24 hours.

I would honestly like to see a breakdown of those trades, traditional vs the exchange.

At least they didn't say they were shutting down.

I have 2 trades in limbo, so hope they're back up soon. Seems like it could be a big mess, especially with all the exchange auctions. Glad I cashed down my points.

Just tried to log in to leave feedback on a recent trade - hope they get back up soon - it was a rare game and I'd like the other guy to get his points.

I just got a sweet , brand new copy of Arkham Origins from a returning goozer who hadn't been active on the site since 2010. I promised him a tip. I wonder if the trade will time out before the site is back online. Oh well, I suppose I can email goozex when they get back online and make sure this fellow is rewarded for an outstanding trade. I like to encourage returning users and noobz alike.

It was a standard queue trade. I have his mailing address. I have half a mind just to send that dude some money and be done with it. From what I've read on the vgfive forums things are not looking good.

Never thought I'd have to post in this thread again but with goozex being down this is one of the only place to keep a dialogue about the situation.

I was just trying to see if they were picking up at all or doing PS4 or XBoxOne trades.  Couldn't find anything out there on why they are down till this thread.

 

2 days later still off line sounds like they didn't pay the bill and either can't or won't.  Shame I liked that place a lot a few years ago.

a web hosting place like this doesn't "close' at all.  the problem is obviously with goozex, if it isn't obvious enough with the site being down, and management being silent, it is when you read their last news release.

So has anyone seen this?:

 


NEW YORK, Dec. 23, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bay Acquisition Corp. (OTCBB:SLGI) filed a lawsuit in Supreme Court of the State of New York against Meyers Associates, L.P. for Breach of Contract, Tortuous Interference with Contractual Relationships, Breach of Implied Covenant of Good Faith and Fair Dealing, Fraud, Constructive Fraud, Negligent Misrepresentation, Breach of Fiduciary Duty, Specific Performance, in the amount exceeding Ten Million ($10,000,000) Dollars.

 

Over $250,000 of capital raised for Bay Acquisition's business operations is being held in escrow by the refusal of Mr. Raana Kahn, Executive Vice President of Meyers Associates, to release the funds to the Company or to release them back to the investors. These funds are critical to Bay Acquisition's continued operations of its website Goozex.com and VGFive.com.

 

For more information please contact Paul Goodman of Cyruli Shanks Hart & Zizmor, LLP at (212) 661-6800.

 

Sounds like Goozex literally doesn't have the money to pay the bills. Looking at the domain's WHOIS info, November/December is the creation date so it's likely that the end of the calendar year would probably be the time period when the corresponding hosting bills would become due.

In its heyday it was a godsend. I used the heck out of it and got so much great stuff. I almost liked it more as a way of getting rid of stuff and getting the most value while doing so. I miss it terribly.

At this point I'll be happy just to see the site back up but I'm certainly not holding my breath.  I've done OK in the last year, especially considering the fraction of trades they've had going compared to the salad days.

That sucks... hope people were able to clear out their points. I was down to 1200 and 2 tokens I think. I almost sent out another game but glad I didn't. 

 

I would imagine VGFive is gonna die soon so...

Posted 06 January 2014 - 07:00 AM

I was at, I think, around 2000 points and around 10 tokens.  The biggest problem, if it is gone, for me, is that,like a dumb ass, I was using it to keep track of what I needed.  My collection is in, um, let's say disarray, and if it doesn't come back up, I've pretty much totally ****ed myself.  Sorting out what I need of everything but Criterion (which thankfully I have a current, separate list) is going to be one hell of a bitch.  I'm hoping it comes back up, but the longer it's down, the more it's going to harm it's future viability if it does.

That's exactly how VGFive has worked ever since they relaunched it a couple months back. It's free market trading.
