vgfive and 99gamers the only options? They both look iffy to me. Anything that's been around for awhile? Only reason I trusted Goozex is because they had a sign up bonus so I was able to test it for free. If I have to pay without testing, I'd rather it be a site that has some experience.


Good luck with that.

I'm on VGFive and loving it. I already gotten my first point for sending out games and reserved some choice spots in the queues. Get in now before the queue for hot games gets too long.

Just on a lark, I went to look at my goozex history. Last thing I received was Uncharted 2. January, 2012.
Nothing since. Shipped some things out in March but nothing since then.

So the seller saw the "neutral" feedback I gave for getting the Xbox game postage due and accepted it. Interesting that the game doesn't show up in my signature even though I mentioned the game and case were in good condition.

Are VGFive and 99gamers better for old games or new games? I have some PS2 games that didn't sell during a lowball and I don't know where I should trade them in. I'm comfortable with 1800 points at Goozex, but I don't want to have too many points if traffic slows even more than it does now (currently at 620 trades) and I'm stuck.

Someone actually requested The Sum of All Fears-PC from me. It was only 100 points but I gladly sent it out considering that was probably the only way I could get anything at all for it.

I'm still hanging in there for now. I'll see how I feel and how trades are going once I get my points lower.

That was an awesome game. I used to play it online so much and I competed in clan battles. I was #1 at 1v1 and my clan was #1, as well. That should tell you how much time I spent on that game. Man, those were some seriously fun times.

Had to leave a negative for a user that had 0 feedback. Sucks for him to start off on the wrong foot.

Also, trades have finally dipped to below 600. They are at 588 today.

I'm honestly wondering how there's even 600 trades going on. I mean don't get why anyone would still be sending stuff out on Goozex.

I've still got 1,800 points and 3 tokens. I guess I'll have to count that as a loss. I've moved on to VGFive. I tried 99gamers, but not sure I like it.

Just got paired for Mortal Kombat (360). Still jumping ship for now, but hoping to get something for my 4000 points.

Its too bad you're still a prick with a stupid gimmick.

Keep in mind that the number of trades go towards movies as well. In fact, I was matched for Star Wars Episode 3 (DVD in full package condition) on Saturday and the person already shipped it. I'm #3 in line for Episode 1.

I activated everything I had around Thanksgiving even if the game was overpriced just to get rid of my remaining points and tokens. Ended up getting 3 games since then which leaves me with 1 token and 300 points. If the site ends up shutting down at least I got my point total down as much as possible.

That 600 trade number is really sad. Does anyone recall what the peak trade number was? I remembered the 8-9000 range, but I'm not even sure any more.

Does anyone know the story of what actually happened with the site after the sale? I can't imagine the company that purchased it intended to just sit back and watch it die.

VGFive has "requested" and "available now" searches that you can run without even being a member, you could use those to see if people want your stuff. I don't see the point of having points at Goozex because I can't use them - I know many others here are in the same boat...

Well, I was going to monitor VGFive and see how things went, but I won the first day of the 12 days of Christmas giveaway, and got 2000 points for free. Bought some tokens and quickly was matched for MW3 and Dance Central 2, while I could have gotten Blops 2 or Halo 4, I passed for cheaper games. MW3 came in the mail today, and I shipped out my first two games today, and matched for a 3rd that I will likely accept. Looks like VGFive is the way to go!

I had a goozex account for about three years with over 70 successful trades (all positive reviews too) and my account was closed by the administrators. I hadn't made a trade in about a year so maybe that's why? Anyway, I don't really care since the site has gone to hell, but some sort of warning or explanation would have been nice.

Wow, that was a dick move by them... I agree they should have warned you. Did you have points/tokens that you lost?

Yeah, I got the email. We'll see, and I hope they sort their shit out. Also, I hope VGFive grows and thrives while sharing the same marketspace.

VGFIVE becomes the new goozex


Goozex will try to come back but will finally do the final belly up this summer what a waste of cash



99 gamers.... will sadly never get off the ground and will be gone before summer (hopefully not but how its set up i seen too many places like this fail big time in the first 3 to 6 months)

Anyone eles notice the insults to goozex fans/customers from the new owners. We are fiesty because you took something great that we helped build and let it go to shit. Even if it does come back I've taken my business to vgfive and its working great. 3 out and two in allready. Plus it's only 1.00 a trade not 2.00. Sorry goozex but your done.

Haha, well I'm glad they finally addressed the sale & management change. I understand that the circumstances caused them to be quiet until all the details where worked out, but I still feel that a billion dollar corporate merger and acquisition could have been done more expediently than this goozex sale was.

I'll be interested to see if they can turn it around. They have definitely dug themselves a pretty deep hole with the trade figures dropping to where they have, but they had the user base at one point, and if they can bring them back they might be able to turn things around.

I'm not holding my breath that it will improve.

I did get matched up for Halo 4 the other day (used an Early Access on it a while back), but it timed out naturally. :bomb:

I'm just pretty much resigned that the 4,000 points or whatever I have left are just wasted other than maybe eventually getting Halo 4 and knocking 1,000 off the balance.

I don't see what Goozex going to do about the "run on the bank" points problem they have.

Well I do - but ppl aren't going to like it.

The CEO seems like a good guy (who knows), all I know is that Goozex charges twice as much per trade then VGFive so they are going to have to be twice as good a site to get customers back. Good luck to them.

I doubt they'll recover but hope I'm wrong since I have like 6K points that I've been trying to spend. I even started requesting random Blu-Rays and older games but no one is trading anything. It really ducks because I recently traded in 2 newer games before seeing that the site had gone to hell. Those 2 people lucked out at my ignorance.

I'll have to check out that other trading site someone mentioned. I miss the good old Goozex days. :(
