Either a standalone system with controllers or a bundle will do. Let me know if you're selling and your price!

It looks like they're banning people who purchased it second-hand. I can't watch the games any more and I get an error message stating my account does not have access to this feature.

Anyone else tried theirs lately?

My only hope is that the reviews largely come from foreign sites it seems...none of the big guns like IGN/GameInformer/Gamespot/etc. have sent theirs in yet...

Gotcha. Now we all know why he chose not to tell you.

Gotcha. Looking through his posts I can't find where he complained about it (unless he deleted them) so I was just confused.

I don't think that was ever enforced. Several items went unclaimed it seemed with no repercussions.

Yeah, that's not reciprocating at all. Did that actually happen? I know I dibbed that $30 PSN for $10 but didn't pay attention to what came before.

I feel like most people were fair about it...I know I for one didn't always have the most desirable stuff but I always tried to make sure my steals offered made up for what I had dibbed. I relied on the feedback and if my items weren't moving I altered them as much as I could to make sure they were worth people's dibs.

I feel like most people have done that...until the end when it seemed like people offered up whatever and were fine with their dib reverting.

Steal tiers would be interesting and probably needed...maybe 4-5 levels ($1-10 discount, $11-20 discount, $21-30 discount, $31-40 discount, $41-50 discount)?

If you claim something within tier 3 let's say ($21-30 discount), you must post something as a steal in that same tier or higher.

Apparently not. I had to give mine away in that thread for them to be considered a steal.

Agreed, fine logic. Wasn't calling you out necessarily, just stating the approximate discount of the current steal yes

Kicking myself for not taking that 2DS steal...almost took your DS Lite Lunar but really wanna be able to play 3DS games. Current steals are ok...question -- do I have to have the Steam game downloaded on my Mac/PC to play using Steam Link?

Current steal...roughly an $8 discount on what each can be found for.
