Black Diamond, Gold, Silver or Bronze?
All video games are carefully evaluated by professionals with video game knowledge
auditing process skills. We offer an objective, consistent, fair and reliable methodology. We use
numbers on a scale of 0 to 100. The final grade represents the whole game (box and seal) as one
What are the evaluation criteria?
Our assessment is based on authenticity and condition. Adding the box (or case)
the seal (or shrink-wrap) together, we check 32 different categories of damage such as corner wear,
or tear, holes, crumples/dents/dings/crease, dirt/mold/contaminants, adhesive residues, stickers,
fading, yellowing, scuffs/scratches/scarring, curved faces among others.
After all the damage is analyzed, the same video game is handed over to a second analyst who will do
same checks, without knowing the results of the first analysis (blind double-check).
The many different types of damage and imperfections have their own weight on our grading scale, for
exemplify, a light scuff will not hurt the final score as much as a 1-inch rip in the wrap.
