ok on AIM my friend told me to post this since this is what we do. It's incredibly simple and obvious don't get mad lol just don't.

Go buy a single player game that looks awesome, play it twice through, and sell it back to Gamespot or somewhere for $25 (you have to get it new to do this). That is credit towards your next purchase. Simple, huh?

Anyway we did this for four games in a row and on the fifth one bought a sports game, rallisport and nfl fever. We saved something like $100 total on games, got to play great single player games, and ended up w/ multiplay games we're gonna keep for a long time.

Correct me if I am missing something.

Reading that post has been a complete waste of my time. I imagine the things I could have done in that 20 seconds that would have been so much more worth while!


Or am I missing something also????????

I think he was saying if you play a single player game and have $25 dollars you can beat the game and at the same time get multiplayer credits while not saving any money and end up buying a game for $100.

I hope that cleared things up....

Also, Sodacider, i would recommend spending $5 on a game and beat it in the 5 days rather than spending $35 on each game.

xbox's and marajuana go great together but sometimes people just smoke far too much. Ease up on the herbs and your judgement should return within a few days.:eek:

ah, ok I see now.........

Buy a game for $50,
Trade That game in + $25 = 1 game, total spent $75
Trade that game in again + $25 = 1 game, total spent $100
Trade that game in again + $25 = 1 game, total spent $125
Trade that game in again + $25 = 1 game, total spent $150

So you wind up with 1 game and you've spent $150!!

Hey! I got it! I can spend $150 and have one whole game to
show for it!

Thanks a bunch.......HEY, WAIT A MINUTE!!!!!!!!!!

lol. no what that guy said was what I was trying to say, put the tradein money TOWARDS another game. He made the point that you only have one game, that's why you'd buy single player games that you'd never really play again.

ohh **** i'm not gonna be able to salvage this am I?

Hehe, look, no offense ok, it's just that in the long run you wind up spending more money and usually wind up with less games. True, you don't spend as much as you would if you had purchased outright all 5 games, but for $150 you could buy three games you really want and spend $5 to rent the games you might be interested in.
If you get tired of one or more of your games you can always find someone here at XBA who would be willing to trade with you for the price of shipping. You get to play more games and trade when you feel like it, simple huh?

How is this considered a secret? I think everyone knows you can sell back your games.

I love the word "retard".

Not only do you sell your games!
But you get railed in the ass and get back like 35% its MSRP.
Id rather keep the game, Or trade it or lend it to someone who will enjoy it just as much.
