This. The guarantee is NECESSARY, otherwise it's a bad idea.Of course, why not?
If it saves you a bundle then I don't see any problem.
Make sure they provide you with some kind of guarantee though. Most of those trade-in type places in the UK offer at least 6 months warranty on stuff like consoles.
You can get some real bargains if you know where to look and how to haggle.
Getting good deals dor used items is what pawnshops are known for. Though, some might be selective in whAt they decide to sell, while others are generally into all item, even your mums jewelries would be bought.As far as I know, purchasing gaming consoles from local pawnshops are quite rare, at least in the area where I live. Actually, the local pawnshops prefer cellphones and other communication devices over gaming consoles, as people tend to benefit more from using cellphones as well as iPhones and iPads. But in cases where a certain pawnshop sells you a gaming console, you must ascertain that the pawnshop owner makes a guarantee that the console is in good working condition. The last thing you want to see is your gaming console which suddenly ceases functioning properly right after paying the purchase price.
Would you ever buy a video game console from a pawn shop? Why or why not?
Never bought used, but I agree and would not buy from a pawn shop or anyone for that matter. A pawn shop has no idea if everything is running ok. Sure they can do a test and try a game but I doubt they are putting any serious time into checking if everything is in perfect condition. And even with a warranty, if it breaks and they have no other PS4's in stock, what then? Do you get a full refund, do they give you store credit? I would rather buy new knowing full well that it is in perfect condition and have that year long warranty to ensure if anything is not.I personally don't trust second-hand electronics unless I personally knew the first hand. I've gotten burned alot by places like Pawnshops and EB Games actually. I just refuse to buy used games and stuff now.
