It's not just a rumor, I heard it on Gamefaqs.

When I trade in a game, it's generally because I'm currently done with it and there's another one around the corner I'd like to have the store credit for. Every now and then I've reacquired such a game later at a cheap price.

Cheating has gone hand-in-hand with gaming for centuries. Video games in particular often have cheats built right into the game.

Had and sold Gun on ps2. Bought it on 360.

Not entirely sure why but I suspect free achievements had something to do with it.

I'm so stupid when it comes to that. I've done it with multiple games. And some games, I have repurchased them as many as 3 times. I've been trying to change my ways and have been a lot better about it lately.

Yes, because when hard times hit, games are quick cash.

Yep, I've done it.

Bought GoldenEye and FF7 at the same time back in the day. Somehow I didn't realize just how long of a game FF7 was gonna be, and when I did, I took GoldenEye back to EB. It drove me nuts to have a game sitting there unopened like that, so I took it back. I bought it back sometime after I beat FF7.

And I've never made the mistake (for me) of buying to high quality games like that at the same time again! ...literally, it drove me NUTS!!!

And to think...people laughed at me when I said MS could out-EA EA any day of the week.
Who's laughing now, *****es???
#10Halochief6Posted 6/26/2013 10:11:28 PM
Yeah. But with PS2 games. I was smart enough not make the same mistake with the 360. I never sell/trade-in games anymore.
