Well, my PSone got denied as 'not working'. I tested it with 2 games before I shipped it out. I had to use 2 games to make sure all of the controller buttons worked. I have 10 or so more items to ship today and then I think I am caught up.

Got paid for 1st batch of psx games (5 for $150), so ordered this to complete my new PC build.

Good card, I own it. Does great up to 1920 x 1080, though newer stuff might give it some slight fits.

I would have a chat with Amazon CS over that one, especially due to its value.

I hope you recorded the serial number of it and took some pictures of its condition, as I think you might not be getting back the same one you sent them. If you tested it and it worked OK and it magically "doesn't work", then I think something's up with that.

Yeah, I have pics of the item and how it was packaged. I know I physically wrote down the serial, but I am not sure if the pic of it came out. I'll contact them one I get it back. The nice thing is I locked it in at Good, so I may get the higher value for it (rather than the $60 I was expecting).

Replaces 2 9600GTs i had in SLI. Might get a 2nd if its not good enough for what i need it for (1900x1200 but not many new games)

Forgot I need a blu-ray burner, so assuming next batch of 3 ps1 ($90) and still-to-be-sent 4 GCs for $120 gets accepted, i should have that covered too :D

Just for the record, did anyone have a cart only game paid out at 'good' condition?

I locked in some of my trades as 'return the item', but I am not sure I should bother sending them in.

Fyi, mine got denied for the same reason and I also tested before I sent it in. Can't wait to get mine back to see what condition it's in.

Traded in some things and shipped them all together. I have already been deposited some credit on some of the items but my email worded it like the other items have not been sent...the items say "processing"....should I worry or just let them process and be patient?

I'm going to use my (hopefully ~$700) Amazon credit on deals, definitely, though I'll also help my brother out with buying art supplies and whatnot, just because I'll be able to. :)

Just be patient. You only have cause for concern if a transaction remains "Processing" for at least a week without changing.

I did one trade on my wife's account but the problem with that is that the credit will just disappear into ephemeral Kindle books. I mean, I suppose that is better than using real money for that, but on the other hand the thought of my meticulously maintained Gamecube Mario/Pikmin/Starfox games turning into disposable e-books is a little irritating ;).

Still nervous about my copy of Seaman being rejected...frantically refreshing the trade-in page to see if they get updated from processing, even though it's been only about five hours in that status.

I'd just be worried about some idiocy with a working system magically turning into not working. Just make sure you have a backup plan in place.

2 560 Tis work well in SLI from what I've seen. I own only one of them, as I don't have a SLI-capable PC. Single GTX670 would also be a good option over a pair of 560 Ti cards.

It still money you're not spending, and yes, it's an the expense of your GC games.

Main reason for SLI for me was more to have 3 monitors setup, more than performance. Only have 2 now, so 1 card good enough for now =]
Since i play more console games than PC, a $130 card should be good enough.

More reports of psone's being rejected makes me feel a little better about not risking sending in my new one.

I'm close to the new facility so the item came back to me today. I retested it and it went to the CD player screen. I rebooted and it worked fine. Swapped games and it booted fine again, so maybe it is dying slightly. But it only went to cd boot screen once. I pulled up the chat and asked if there was anything I could do and they said I could resubmit under current trade value but that's about it.

They also looked it up and said I had incorrect controller and that is my fault, it's official but not white. I had a 2nd trade for the console as I was going to pick up a 2nd one if my first was accepted. I may dig out the white controller and send it back to see what happens. And yes, I included the box and unopened instruction manual and unopened a/v cables. Both were returned to me unopened.

If it helps I think they stopped doing weekend processing a while back. So you can at least relax for two days.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

Damn, I missed that price for Resident Evil 3. I locked in my gamecube Resident Evil 1 though. It is complete and mint. I made sure I locked that one in as "Return" instead of "do not return downgraded item"

Guess I missed my chance. What was the trade value on seaman?


I saw when the TIV was $30. Even that that price I couldn't sell my Seaman.

...wow, that sounded dirty.
