Selling Games console with free copied media

I've just read the rules on selling items, I know you can't sell copied media but if I have a games console & I have legally backed up games and now i decide to sell my games console. Can I sell the console and include the games for free?

time to bin those games then!

Just sell it as a console with "extra" games at no extra charge.

Anyway what console is it

I think it may be ok if you supply the original games too, but not 100% sure about that.

I didn't know, that's why I posted this. But I know now, so as you can see there was a need for this thread.

And it may look like I might be promoting something, but it wasn't my intention.

I just needed some clarification. And I have that now, hope that's ok with you.

when you post in another thread saying they are "special games" i think that answers the op

Quoted for ultimate respect for posting that without laughing at the irony.

If you had legally backed them up, you would have deleted them when you sold the original media. If you still have the original media, obviously you could sell them, and the backup with them (don't quote me on the last bit, but common sense should prevail there)

Yeah, I understand what your saying, but these were all on discs. So can't really delete them. Will bin them and just sell the originals seperately without the backups.

r4ge, I thought that the FS/T warning you received this morning for listing them in a trade thread was sufficient 'heads up' but to clarify again, no you cannot list these for sale/ trade. Thread closed.

And after reviewing your external trade feedback, please note that you NOW have a full trade ban in place for all consoles, games and associated accessories. If you wish to discuss this trade ban then please use the main 'Contact' link.
