When shopping any of our websites or in our stores, you will notice that we segment games into 5 categories:
- Brand New - new in original packaging and include original components.
- Pre-Played - CIB - Like New - might as well be new but someone removed the wrap or opened the box, but you can't even tell it happened! Item is CIB = Complete in Box.
- Pre-Played - CIB - Very Good - item is complete in box (CIB) with all original components. It will include jewel case/box, artwork, instruction manuals and any included items where applicable. All items will show very little to no wear.
- Pre-Played - CIB - Good - item is completed and will include jewel case/box, artwork and manuals Items will show light wear from use. Labels on cartridges might show minor wear. Manuals might show minor wear from use.
- Pre-Played - Acceptable - these items might not be complete. These items will be game or system/accessory only and might not include boxes or manuals. These items will show wear from use and might also have sticker or marker residue on them. These items are still great to play!
- Uglies - they might not be pretty but they work! We sometimes get items that show label damage, dents, deep scratches, cracks, etc. We're happy to offer these at a discount. If you just want to play a game, check the "uglies" out a save a few bucks to boot!
(*We replace the batteries in all game carts that use a battery system for backup or gameplay - this might add 1 day to any shipping interval. Also note, downloadable content might already have been redeemed or no longer available depending on the item, item type and time since release. Downloadable content is handled by the game manufacturer and outside of our ability to monitor/update/provide. Lastly, some games are online only - this is NOT a defect, servers are sometimes taken offline as interest declines. These are still collectible items.)
Please shop our sites and stores with confidence! We test all items before we put them into inventory. We try to ship all orders within 24 hours of purchase.
If you are ordering from afar, feel free to call either store and speak with one of our staff. Or simply click the message icon on the bottom right of the page and chat with us live. We're happy to send pics of items ahead of purchase.
We offer a 30-day warranty on any game, game system or accessory that is purchased from us. We have you covered and want you to feel confident that even pre-owned games, systems and accessories will bring you tons of carefree game time.
Happy Gaming! J2Games.com
