so theyd be willing to lose money trading at £250 ? and selling at £279 strange , do you think the shareholders would allow this (blcokbusters) , and yes i can confirm it was the lancaster branch of GS.

just to confirm ive just rung GS , lancaster , for a trade in on an xbox 360 premium pack , they said they'd obviously have to check it first but it would be worth £175.00 , they cant trade them at £250 , they cannot by law lose money , it would go against the shareholders rights etc. Maybe you go...

Just a note about the xbox 360 , i doubt GS would trade it in at £250 , the main reason is that selling it at £279.99 would incur a loss (due to VAT) , second hand items are in the global VAT scheme , plus the second reason is that they trade them in at around £185.00 , a pal of mine bought a 360...

from Dudley : I'm not sure what you're saying here? £8 is a bad trade in for a 15 year old game now? In regards to the trade in for alien soldier of £8 , what does it matter if its 15 years old (which it isnt anyway) , age doesn't devalue an item , the fact of wow ! its rare and offering a paltry ...

Just my thoughts , bid sniping is great for buyers who dont want to compete against imaginary bidders , you only put your top price in , if during the course of the auction your max has already been beaten then you lose , but if its not been bid up to your max then you win , without the hassle.

1) Sega megadrive - many happy memories playing games such as Toe jam and earl , madden 92 , pga golf etc

2) Xbox - great for emulation, especially mame , spectrum , snes , md , neo geo etc

3) Gba Sp - again great for spectrum emulation.
