Can someone tell me what a "DINGER" description would look like for a collector's edition video game specifically?
If a like new collector's edition description reads:
"Fully playable game is included; downloadable content (DLC) or codes for online play may require additional purchase. Item may come repackaged."
Is this a dinger and how do you gauge that? I would rather buy a package that is damaged than one that had a previous owner.
It all boils down to interpretation, even with a description like that, it doesn't mean it actually had a previous owner but I personally avoid those kind of descriptions if I can find a better one available.
Usually a good possible "dinger" would be something that has a description describing the damage, such as "small cut/bend on top, medium cut on bottom" etc, you get the idea. At least that's how I evaluate what I am going to buy, and even then you don't guarantee yourself a possible dinger,
AWD's grading is all over the place at times. I've gotten (A) items that have been MUCH better than (LN) ones.
Example of what I'd consider a possible dinger.
Fully playable game is included; downloadable content (DLC) or codes for online play may require additional purchase. Activation codes for bonus online content may be missing or expired. Small cut/scatch on set case. Small wrinkle / bend on set case.
