People are already selling the Smash Bros. 3DS demo on eBay for quite a lot of money.
Sold 3 of my extra codes at $30 each as Buy It Now. Sold them all within 10 minutes. Crazy how big the Smash hype is that people spend that much to play the demo a week early, lol.
You really have to watch things like that though. The terms of service are against selling digital codes, so if a claim is made against you, there is a fairly large chance you will lose. This is what some people do on eBay (not all as some are stupid), but it is what it is. I just gave mine away.
Not really, all Ebay will do is remove the listing, but will do nothing with the Paypal transaction. If anything the buyer loses out because the transaction has now disappeared from the account.
Sooo much wrong with that. First of all, congratulations! This is sending the wrong type of message if people can't wait a week for the English release for a demo, and willing to pay for a demo.... This is sending the wrong message. Just add $10 and you can buy the full version. Anyways, congrats on getting 2 free 3ds games (basically that) and a free $10 game off the eshop. Sometimes I weep for the future of the industry.
Not surprised - this is gonna be huge!
I've got the demo and it really aint much just the one level and 5 characters, i would never spend money on it let alone $30 jeez
I saw this on n4g and I was like hey don't I have a few codes left over that I didn't use. So I posted my last two codes on ebay for $8.99 each and they both sold within 10 minutes. I guess people are really looking forward to this game. I could have put the price higher but it all seems like a rip off any way so I went for the low end of the bucket. Anything over $10 is insane and yes there are some priced as high as $30 actually selling.
For the people that are spending money for a freaking demo, you guys are stupid. For those who are the ones selling to stupid, more power to ya. Can't be angry when someone makes money off those that are beyond clueless.
I paid a couple dollars to get into the Destiny Beta so I don't see the big deal but $30 dollars for a demo now that is insane.
The demo is free next week and the full game is out a couple weeks after. But oh well, I guess if you have the money to burn. Got mine for free from a friend in a Facebook gaming group :D
I'd love to spend thirty dollars to play a single stage of SSB a week early without being able to change my settings. Or, I could spend my money on a time waster and wait a week to get the same exact thing for free.
I know not all games can do such things where the hype makes them buy a demo for over 0.01 (whatever your currency here) is a bit insane I mean it gives the wrong message but people will do as they please.
gave 3 of my codes away to random peeps on gaf. I feel good about it but selling a demo you got for free is pretty shameful unless you really need to feed your family or something lol.
Same. Two went to people offering to pay for codes, specifically because I didn't want them to do something so stupid.
If you got Club Nintendo to Platinum. I sincerely doubt you're hurting financially.
Wow people are that desperate to play a damn demo they are paying $30? I've seen some stupid people in my time but this...
I feel sorry for people paying for this demo. It's extremely barebones. I got bored of it after 2 matches. Can't people really wait just a week to have the thing for free?
I got a code for free from Gaf. All it took was 3 hours of begging, a jolly nice fellow and some luck. Game seems pretty solid. Its fast and charming, if a little floaty. Villager is pretty OP due to amazing recovery. Didnt think the game would look this good on the DS.
People don't realize that the demo will be available to everyone next week?
If anyone would be kind enough to send me a code, that would be greatly appreciated! please message me at [email protected] thanks anyways!
