If someone wants to just play the game, sure. 35 is a great price even if it is in that cond.

I normally wouldn't do this, but who would have a problem with a future steal (items not releasing for months? I actually want those DS games. I could give up Skyrim and Super Mario Oddysey for close to the same price as the last two, but they're so far out.

They're great games. I played the first two. It's a nice lot.

I feel indifferent about it, but it depends on the price you're wanting to offer them for. I prefer to have items in hand... but if you make it clear that they haven't come out yet, then the dibber is aware.

Well, I just don't want to hold up the thread. This isn't as simple as a poor offer.

On the plus side, the reverting "problem" would be solved for a while, haha.

Edit: Ok, I'm going to go for it. If it sucks, just let it revert, guys. No hard feelings.

Prob not a good idea. It's primed for scams. Obviously not whitefire but someone could use it.

Definitely depends on the user offering

Agreed... Im not crazy about offering a steal on a preorder. Its better if the items are in hand... like MK8 or something was great. But MO, while it will be easy to find and sought after... its prob best to have it in hand.

Increase it to double gold star for future offers. I would avoid it entirely though.

I'm cool with whitefire doing it, but I prefer people to get approval from me first before posting preorders.

Just make a qualitative baseline. You have to be at least as reliable as whitefire. I'm not that reliable, so it should be easy, haha.

This is obviously a great deal but it's just something about "when am I gonna get it?" I suppose that's the nature of pre-orders

if it was something I was going to get anyway from a trusted user I might be pretty inclined to take a nice preorder at a nice price.

Whitefire is reliable, but if a silver or bronze star user tried to offer a pre-order... im not sure i'd approve of it. Multi-gold is safest bet.

Welp.. Since Whitefire has been on fire...

What is the feeling on the wii u lot geewiz has up I am very very tempted to nab that but want to make sure I can do something good enough in return.

If someone nabs it though go for it

I want to say it's about $50 discount. Games are averaging $20 a piece I'd say. Some a little more, a couple a little less.

Funnily enough, I'd have taken that Wii U lot too, haha. I don't really have many "extras" left though. Plus, I didn't see it until it already reverted. If mine reverts, it's cool. I liked that lot I got, but I can live without it.

I was thinking about a ps4 lot to get the wii u games.. would have had horizon, Nathan drake collection, lego batman and maybe another pretty cheap. I have most of the wii u lot but nintendo stuff is always easy to trade for things I need, but I'd have just had to get horizon again, and I can just trade Nathan batman and exist archive as easily as the wii u ones prob.

We dont want to start a thread where everyone is offering preorders, stick to items you have in hand. It's best to go that route for everyone's sanity.

And I do have items to light it up... but, I dont want to do it on a newer release (one thats not even out yet!)

It doesn't have to do with me not trusting Dashey, I have full faith that he would send the games he promises. I just want to stick to physical items people already have in hand.

Well we allow digital items too.

I think pre orders makes it more fun, I'd love to get Odyssey or Splatoon 2 etc.. Just me tho it's your thread.

If everyone offers pre-orders, Im sure thats what this thread may become... just preorders and the occasional physical game here and there. Then people will start promising LE's, SE's, etc... That's not the direction the thread should be headed.

also, because pre-orders "automatically" have a value of $50 because they haven't come out yet. Or whatever value they may be... it's not fair to those who are putting together lots to meet a certain price point.

I actually don't think we should do more preorders. It just opens a can of worms. Or if we do do it then it has to be coming out in a month or less.

I knew more people would want to try it since "if whitefire can do it, why can't I?"
