    So i sold a copy of Saints Row 2 to some asshat on ebay. Asshole had it 8 days then sends me a message saying it doesn't work. Paypal, assholes they are, sided with buyer and gave him his money back.

    So now im stuck with a disc that you can tell asshat moved his 360 when it was spinning and f'd the disc, is it possible to repair? or should i just toss it out? Are any of those disc repair things worth it?

    I don't know about Game Stop, but in the UK, GAME a chain of stores in the UK have disc re surfacers.

    The ones you get at home are not as good as the ones a store will have, but certainly if you find a place with a disc repair machine it will work if that is the case.

    Have you told PayPal the situation?

    I bet he fucked up his disc and bought yours to scam from the start.

    oh yea, he filed a complaint with paypal since i denied refunding him money, which pisses me off to begin with. On ebay you can have a 7 day return policy, but paypal takes it up to 20. So i got fucked there. I called paypal and actually got a gamer chick (we were talking games for a bit) and she was siding with me, but it got overrulled.

    He filed a complaint, they took my money. i filed an appeal, they closed it without even notifiying me.

    so now im stuck with my saints row 2 game again, but it don't work.

    this is why there should be serial numbers on the disks that match serial numbers on the cases...

    nvm all my ps3 games have serials on them on the silver side... i wonder if for the same game they are all different... guess i know what I am making sure of if i ever sell games on ebay again

    That don't matter, you will still get screwed. Buyers have all the power on eBay. It's in PayPals hands.
