Ebay sellers that put "best offer" on 3DO stuff...

Post by CasetheCorvetteman » Wed Nov 12, 2014 11:55 am

Not sure why this one in particular put an option for Best Offer, i made three quite fair offers and none taken, the item failed to sell...

It was a long box Crime Patrol, non working disc, no manual, no other paperwork these games came with, just a case showing signs of wear and tear and a disc that would never ever work again.

I offered five bucks under the buy it now price, and when that was rejected right near the end, i offered $3 under then $2 under...

Thing is here, its not of much use to a collector due to condition of case and lack of manual...

On the flip side of that, i put in an offer on a sealed long box Last Bounty Hunter, offer got accepted within ten minutes, i paid, and we're laughin ;) $8 USD off!!

Managed to also get €5 off a long box Mad Dog in perfectly good condition complete with everything, offer accepted very quickly there too.

Dude, I LOVE Gun Games and own all the relevant titles for Saturn, PS1 and PS2.

However, I really am NOT a fan of how those old school ALG titles play :|

I do love the FMV appeal though... 8)

I've seen the same happen. In fact, most of the time when I place a best offer, it's auto-rejected, even if it's pennies below the buy it now price. I suspect these people are just confused by ebay's listing software and can't figure out how to set the auction up so that it will consider best offers.
