Edit: This entire site is broken. What makes people think they can put up a site this crappy and run a business out of it? It's pathetic.

Can't find anything of interest. Found GTA: LCS for the PS2 but it got snatched up by the time I tried to confirm.

Isn't that what they're doing? "Come get a free $5 game...oops nothing actually costs $5, why dont you put in $7 more and we can get you something cool."

That won't stop cheapos like me finding a free game if it kill us, but it might discourage repeat business. The prices are still half decent even if they aren't as advertised.

Geez, man. It seems like they're just starting out. What was so bad about it? I mean, besides the amount of games they have in stock, they seem pretty similar to Goozex...

I don't think you just "get" them, as they have to be available first...

I don't like having a sig, but for CAG, I figured I'd sheep along.

Everything is listed for 5, and then when I click it- it is 12! GRR

How the hell does this thing work?

I see a game I want that's "EST 5", yet I have no idea where to put the promo code or how to even see if any copies of the game are even available.

The site would be immensely better if the minimum list price is shown. I have to click on each individual game to see the real price. But if I receive Splinter Cell: Double Agent (PS2), I'll probably visit the them again.

How are you supposed to use this site after finding some $5 games(seems to be a few in the ps2 category). I saw star wars III i was like eh whatever thats fine its free i load it up and it says Price $5 for game and manual. Yet it keeps telling me i need more sbucks, i mean if i have $5 why is it telling me i need more money?

edit: never mind you have to look for the promo code in your act email

Unfortunately, this is just another crappy switchplanet-esque trade site. Exact same set-up : though there are "recommended" game values, users charge whatever they want for a game (ie higher than new prices in the real world), while buyers can "bid" on what they'll pay for an item (ie practically nothing), with all transactions using their proprietary "sbucks" that you must buy from them and can not cash back out; they give away free sbucks for signing up, already creating ridiculous levels of point inflation before the site even gets any steam.

Its not an intended scam by the site owners, just a terribly designed trade system that will be dead in the water in a few months, like every other similar site.

Hi, I'm new to trading. Is Goozex the best?

Of that sort of site, Goozex does indeed seem the best. A lot of CAGs use it, including myself.

The trading forums here are great too.

Yeah, I have to say, after seeing all the chaos with "recommended prices" and then seeing what people are actually asking for a game, I'm REALLY glad Goozex has rejected all suggestions of implementing a similar system. Goozex's system isn't perfect, but it works, and is far more effective than this set up.

Yes. As previously mentioned, not perfect, but they both a) are not in it for a quick buck, and b) actively work to fix/update/change their system to make it better.

No. I am not affiliated with the site in any way, I just stumbled across it in a google search.

My copy of Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy came today. I can't play it yet, as my PS2 is not currently in the land of the living, but it looks to be in mint condition.
