Trading in games for digital copies?

#1LegendAssassinPosted 11/29/2012 11:44:24 PM
I thought about selling the games I brought for almost full price to buy the digital copies. Do you think it is worth it? I have the Deluxe WiiU....

Nah. You wouldn't get any ROI, especially if you own the Basic Set. Just purchase future games digitally if they are available.

Something being listed on Amazon =/= those items actually selling for that price on Amazon

Yeah, sealed ones, sure, for roughly 50 dollars. After Ebay fees and paying for shipping and what not, that gets struck down to roughly 40 dollars though.

So....again, where are you planning on this getting almost full price for your, I assume used games?

Last time I checked I wasn't asking weather or not selling my games at a price was worth it.... Also, even used copies still sell for basically full price. It isn't gamestop that give you maybe 20$ even if it was sealed. Also, Ebay would only take out like 2$.

Seriously, how many times am I going to have to bring common sense against you? I wasn't telling you whether it's worth it or not, I showed you flat out, you won't get near full price for them. And Ebay would take about 5-6 dollars if it sold for 50-55, plus take out fees on shipping, and Paypal would charge you their fee, and then as well to transfer to your bank account if you were transferring under 150 dollars into it.

And that's assuming you do a very basic, no frills, no extras listing on Ebay.

Depending on how much the actual shipping costs you as well, plus shipping materials and what not.....Ebay is not some great money making machine anymore, it's a PITA.

No, used copies do not sell for basically full price, did you bother checking the link I gave you that SHOWS what the games have been selling for on Ebay?
