What's the best place to buy games used or reduced on the net? Not Ebay, I'm not interested in bidding on something.

Thanks in advance.

Purple Pixies words of wisdom!http://directory.google.com/Top/Shopping/Toys_and_Games/Games/Video_Games/Console/Used/

Thats the Google directory link. Sorry I haven't got time to check them all (it's my 15 minute-per-hour Soul Calibur 2 break!) but there seems to be a fair few. They seem okay but thats the best I can do. I'd suggest giving Ebay a go they've got some good stuff there.

Try Half.com as well. It's partnered with Ebay, but you don't have to bid on anything.

Depends on the games. Are you looking for new or used, old-school or new-system, domestic or import?

Prices don't tend to vary too much on those. I'd lurk around some of the usual suspects --

ebgames.com
gamestop.com
amazon.com
circuitcity.com
bestbuy.com

and watch for one or more to drop their prices a bit. Older games can plummet without warning sometimes.

Also, half.com isn't a bad idea -- their selection and availability vary very wildly, but occasionally you can grab a good deal.

Anybody ever trade games online at all?

There's some stuff I want, but I don't really have money to work with- just old stuff I don't play anymore.

www.toysnjoys.com

it's a store based in hawaii that sells a lot of import and domestic stuff at cheap prices. if you check out the pre-owned and discount sections you'll definitely find some deals. (ex: refurbished gamecube for $60) lot of vintage games too.



it says so right here in the wcw handbook!

USENET used to be great for that kind of thing -- I spent many a year in rec.games.video.classic when I was building my collection. Of course, that was before the spambots started bombarding USENET full-force...

They do have great prices, and it's also the vaulted place I saw the Q IN PERSON(!) but I find it hilarious that I walk in there and their domestic Viewtiful Joe is $20 less than the import.
