    2nd Hand PS3 Games: The Check List

    Guys, I am planning to buy 2nd hand games but aside from the scratches, case, and manual, what should I be checking?

    Example, if the game has one time use vouchers/codes, should I check out what are the contents and would it affect my gameplay if I didn't have such vouchers?
    Another, in multiplayer games, should I be concern that I couldn't play the multi if blah blah for some reason?

    Oh yeah, I am planing to buy Blur, GT6, Killzone 3, and Resistance 3.

    Thanks ahead for the reply guys!

    Not really. Most vouchers/codes would be invalid by now anyway.

    All resistance games online are shut down. Gran Turismo 5 online just shut down(try GT6). If you like a game, google it & see if the platinum trophy is still obtainable. "gran turismo 5 platinum trophy", should pop up a site that tells you the online is shut down or if the game has some issue that causes it to not run anymore.

    Online passes should be voided by now and not all games still have servers online to support online gameplay.


    It's always good to search online to see if a game still popular or has online servers.

    And we accept this. It's crazy to think about. If you bought GT5 and got the all-included edition, your DLC doesn't work because the severs were taken down. Such a shame this is where we're at now. smh

    If you bought the game new right now, you wouldn't be able to get the DLC. It was on the blog when GT5 servers were being turned off. If you had DLC you had to download it before some deadline or something crazy.

    I am sorry but not all games suck because you cant play online..... I hardly EVER play online so used games are affordable and a great service to me.... I work hard for my money and dont have tons of cash to pay for new games....
