I thought I should post a warning here since the seller, hannah71783, still has a number of games listed on Ebay, including several 3DO games.
As I posted on these forums, I recently purchased a copy of the 3DO version of Flashback. When I took it out of the package I noticed it had several scratches, but assumed they wouldn't affect gameplay. Last night I tried the game out, only to find it is non-functional. I booted up my 3DO six times, and every time it crashed when I selected Start. Looking over the disc, I realized that the scratches were deeper than they seemed at first glance. Just to see what would happen, I tried it out on 4DO; 4DO crashed as soon as I loaded the disc.
Major bummer, but it happens. The real problem came when I contacted the seller, explaining what happened and requesting a refund. Here was her response:
Note that despite her insistence that she does not accept returns, the game was not listed as being sold "as is"
. To add insult to injury, there's the horrendous grammar, as though she can't even be bothered to type up a coherent response for every single buyer she's swindling. Definitely the worst Ebay experience I've had in years of using the service.
