Woohoo! Someone requested my copy of Bulletstorm.

Now if only I can get a game with the points I've earned so far.


I don't think you'll have any trouble getting something you want to play. So far, I've sent out 5 games, and received 3 in about 3 weeks as a member. I had to put all of my requests on hold because my backlog is getting too big.

I really wish that codes didn't have the same listing as physical games. 1000 points for a code might be high, while it might be a steal for the physical discs.

Yeah, it's also kind of annoying since people list things like PS3 downloads for PS1 games. There should probably be separate listings at least for things like that where the digital code obviously won't work with a PS1.

I'm considering the options as far as keeping the listings the same but allowing for differences in price between physical and digital versions. More on this is coming, but for now it's going to be one listing until then. Thanks for the input!

I agree with this sentiment... they should be separate and should have different values.

TheGamesDB is missing a very high amount of Xbox games. I've come across at least 20 games that will require me to enter them there before I can enter them on VG5.

I received yet another game request and I'm currently at 800 points.

Games sent out: 4 (soon to be 5)

Games received: 0 (First in line for a PS3 and an Xbox 360 game)

Not bad since joining VGFive a month ago.

Update:

I received my first tip for a game trade. That makes 5 games sent out.

And I was matched for my first game: Child of Eden (360). It was shipped on the same day.

Compare that to Goozex where I was matched for two games. One timed out and the other is pending (but will probably time out if the seller doesn't reply with shipping confirmation).

Was comfortable at 1800 points then matched for Lego Batman 2 (probably a flip from Gamefly) and Rayman Origins in the last 24 hours. Scrambling to find stuff to send to get back to 1000+ (MLB 12 and Enslaved)

Site just hit 3000 trades total.

Child of Eden arrived and plays perfectly. Case and manual were in mint condition.

So I was going through my backlog and I found a sealed 2-pack of Sonic Adventure 1 and 2 (Gamecube). I noticed it is not listed at VGFive, but they are listed separately. Am I better off offering each game on their own?

I've been looking for a copy of that two pack. If you're interested in trading it, CML.

I hate to hijack this thread, but your PM box is full.:lol:

Argh, I hate when that happens. PM box is fixed now.

It's funny that you showed an interest because I was saving up stuff for a future lowball. Try sending that PM again and we may be able to do a trade or two.


BTW, did the drawing for the Wii U sweepstakes happen yet?

I entered 4 games on Friday night (3 x 360, 1 x Xbox), and the VGFive site still doesn't have them listed. Do they pull from the database over the weekend?

I just got matched for Ni no Kuni. I was listed as 4th in line, so it came as a bit of a pleasant surprise. Nearly wiped out my points...oh well, time to activate a few more offers.

So, for the prize for the childs play raffle, are those $20 credits just good towards the $1 trade fee or can it actually be used to buy games?

Details on that will be sent to the winners shortly. It's a combination of tokens and credits.

Someone is offering :ps3: Aliens: Colonial Marines already.

I've gotten a couple that are recent releases. Hitman Absolution, Dishonored and Sleeping Dogs -- and Midway Arcade Origins just arrived today.

Overall it's working quite well for me so far. As soon as I get a decent amount of credits banked, I get matched. Most surprising is that Vita games are actually trading.

As for games being added to the database, anyone with an account at thegamesdb.net can do that. There is a thread for requests and others are kind enough to do the dirty work. Takes 5 minutes tops for each one.

I'm 13 out 13 in. 90% Xbox 360. I've traded snes, GameCube, wii, ps2, and a bunch of 360. I can't keep points in or get a stockpile going. As soon as my points hit I get matched for another game on my list.
