    Anyone else trying out Goozex now that it's been launched in Europe? For those not in the know it's a popular site over in the US that matches up people who want to trade in a game with those who want that game. Every game has a point value that acts as a currency for the site and you can then use your points in turn to order games from other users. Imagine it being like e-bay but with a fixed price for any given game, nice orderly queues for requests and offers and less of a cut taken out of your money (the site charges 1 euro or equvalent for a credit to receive a game). You can buy points instead of trading games for them although the price of them right now means you're better off finding something that someone wants on special offer in the shops.
    If you sign up now you get one free trade and enough points to request a relatively old game (gamecube/original xbox era etc) straight away, there's a nice selection of decent games building up in that range already.
    Here are the links to the site, feel free to use the plain link, I'm also posting a referral code which will give you (and me) extra points and an extra trade credit the first time you send out a game using the service:

    Signed up a few weeks ago and am really liking this - have traded about 6 old pc games and received a couple of new 360 ones. Works really well. As membership grows it should get even better.

    I'd definitely recommend this to anyone with some old games they want rid of (or new ones) - beats trading them in at Game etc

    Unfortunately for European members, the contest is only for US residents. We recognized AVForums as a mostly UK site, but it still has a very large amount of US site visitors that we are targeting the promotion towards.

    Goozex.eu is run independently of Goozex.com (US).

    A quick update for the UK and EU members that are interested in Goozex.eu. They have setup a special coupon for you:

    Join Goozex.eu and enter code: AV-UK
    After you confirm your email you'll get 100 points and 1 token. That's good for any 100 point game available on the site!

    Same happened with me DpM. Still relatively new to this not really sure what this whole "I have 1 trade remaining" means? Does that mean I can trade one more game then I have to pay the 1euro fee per trade?

    Hi guys,

    Not sure what happened. Two things to check, while I write to the EU team.

    1. Make sure you're not in a trade match -- the system will temporarily debit from your account the points and tokens needed for a trade if you are matched with a seller. If the seller agrees to the trade then the points/tokens are transferred. If the seller backs out then the points/tokens are credited back to your account.

    2. Check your account history under "My Account" -- you will have a detailed list of all activity of your points/tokens transactions.

    It looks like the EU team now give 100 points and 1 trade to sign up, rather that 2 trades and no points when I signed up. So it looks like they have got mixed up. As if I signed up now then I would get 200 points dues to the AV code?

    So I should either have 200 points and 1 trade or 2 trades and 100 points.

    Something went wrong at their end :suicide:
