With the rise in the PS3 online game trading, there have been a number of sites that have taken it upon themselves to essentially ensure safe trades between people. This means that rather than finding someone online that has a game you want, offering them one of your games and then hoping that they send the game the same way you do, someone will actually monitor the trade for you. Sites like this are popping up across the gaming world and many gamers have questions about how they work, and how they ensure safe and secure trades. Here, we will talk through some of the common practices of the PS3 online trading sites and also why they work so well.To start with there is the trade itself. Most times PS3 games will be listed by the members. The will be games that the users have, but no longer want and are willing to trade for other games. At this point you can off the player a game that you have, but no longer want to hang on to. If they agree both PS3 games are sent to a common location where the games are inspected and then sent out to the correct people. This way of trading ensures that the person you are trading with will actually send you the games you are trading for. If they don’t, the site will send your PS3 games back to you. You will still be out the shipping for the game, but at least you still have the game, rather than being completely out everything.One of the big concerns when you are trading PS3 games with people you don’t know and trading games that you can’t see is the condition they keep their games in. As any PS3 player would know, a scratched PS3 game is nearly useless. Fortunately the gaming sites have found a way around this little problem. When a game is listed on their site, the current owner of the game has to put the current condition of the game in its description. That way when you are dealing with the other people, you know what to expect. Of course people can simply lie can’t they? Yes, they can, but because the game goes to the gaming site first, it will be inspected there. This happens before your game gets sent to your fellow trader. This way if the game that you are waiting for isn’t in the condition it is suppose to be in, then it won’t happen and again, you won’t be stuck without a fair trade.The one final thing about PS3 game sharing websites is the processing fee. Because you are having the games go to a third party first, who will ensure that the games are in good condition and the correct game, you will end up paying a fee. This fee is generally not any more than it would cost to rent a game from a store however. While many people are turned off by this feature, it makes perfect sense. You need to pay for the security that you are getting by using this process. If you are too worried about the fee and go off on your own, you will probably regret it the first time someone you are trading with never sends the game you asked for and there will be nothing you can do.
