That's the real problem with Adverts nowadays, there's no real reprocussions for timewasters.
Adverts doesn't seem to have any moderation, everyone breaks the minimum offer rule there is no penalty for this, no one reads the descriptions, the mention of swap comes into every sale even if its clearly written in the advert no swaps. Users should need to have a link to a paypal account or some way to pay a deposit of say €1-5 to make an offer on something, this way if someone makes and offer and doesn't follow through there is a penalty which the seller and or the adverts team would receive, if the transaction go's ahead the €1-5 would be refunded.

And yet it's something they now want us to pay for too

They've tried to tart the whole thing up with fancy new gimmicks, TV ads etc - when they should be really focusing on making the place work first. Cart before the horse.

Well its standard pricing on the system now. Although they still sell the thing for €80, so yes it is way too little.

To give them their due, they did suggest taking it to CEX in Santry.
Although they appear to be offering a tenner cash and fifteen on trade for one!
Bad times for Wii owners hoping to trade up, small ads is the only place to go now with them, maybe get €35 with a or two thrown in.
