Tell me about this, i stated what game i wanted as per rules and also i stated i wanted both promo and disc only games.

Therefore if all of a sudden we are not allowed to trade in promo games, couldn't i have been told to remove the request for promo games in the thed instead of locking it, as i have stated disc only games

Strange rule as many do have a RRP as you can buy them in the shops. Take all the ones that come packaged with Wireless controllers etc.

Seems very over the top imo. Happy to go along with the rules regarding it but a shame.

Agreed. Will report the thread and hope for a response.

It's a weird rule, made worse by inconsistant actions from the mods.

Although I understand there are reasosn for the rule, if someone wants to sell, and someone wants to buy - whats the problem.

As someone has already stated, we end up with the bizarre situation that CEX will trade with you, but the HUKD forum won't. That can't be right can it?

I can understand when the prohibited items as they don't want to get into legal difficulties over it. But other then that yeh your right.

Your thread was closed for both the promotional material issue and because your request was too vague, you need to make a list before posting, as stating 'all others considered' isn't acceptable.

As awoodhall2003's reply below, please use the Contact Us link if you're unhappy with the decision. Thanks.

We'll review the promotional material issue later on, but if CEX offers a suitable comparison, maybe we can use that.

Thanks for all the input on this.

Cex and gamestation have always taken in promo stuff, or ive never had any problem, and due to lack of barcode they just type the title in and take it. :thumbsup:

CEX will pretty much take anything, but I've noticed that Gamestation won't take promo stuff with only american age ratings on (which some promo stuff is). Not sure why - legal issues?

yeah maybe as the rating would then be incorrect for the UK to sell. Or could be because they know they have idiots come in who will get very confused! :whistling:

Probably the former...

As Rayman points out, we'll discuss this issue and return back to this thread. However there is a significant difference between bundled copies and promotional material marked as not for resale.

CEX will take stuff with "Not for resale" on it as far as I'm aware.

It's not a legal thing is it? They just try to make out it is?

Uhhmm not sure about this one. I give you an example if you buy an ex-rent movie from Blockbuster which says "not for sale" (only for rent) or something like that. Does that mean that you could not sell that movie after you watch it in here?

or what about a DVD collection (i.e. Star Wars) with 3 movies, Are you saying that because they came in a bundle you could not sell them individually ?

Hardly go into Cex anymore as it just stinks.

To be fair to people who try to sell promo games then that rule should also apply to ex-rental films now i'd assume.

Good point. :thumbsup:

But sometimes these 'bundled' copies are just that: promotional.

Agreed ex-rentals shouldnt be allowed then...and that will stink as thats lots of some peoples dvds! furthermore if blockbuster can sell them, then surely they have a valid RRP?

that looks like it was answer though. By means of basically promo = not allowed for sale on HUKDs

it did seem that way but no clarification was ever given. well not really well maybe, I just think if this does come into fruition then it opens a rather large can of worms about what is allowed to be sold.
