View Full Version : Cybiko Uses?
06-05-2001, 04:54 PM
I finally just got off my ass and sent my cybiko thing in (just in time it turns out, as I recall the deadline is June 14). So my question for those who ahve recieved it is, what the heck do you do with it now? I see that they're only going for like $30 bucks on ebay. For that little money, I'd rather just keep the thing and find some decent uses for it.

You could return it to Best Buy for store credit, it now retails for $75, which can be used to buy the Sopranos on dvd or something like that.

That's definitely an option I'll keep in mind, I could use some new games too. But if I do decide to keep it, what's it good for?

Unless all your friends have one as well, I dont se emuch use for them at all. Just take it back to BB.

how do you return it to best buys without a receipt?

BB doesnt ask for a receipt. You can only get store credit without one, but hey, $75 to BB isnt bad at all.

Well, at least I know I have some options. Has anyone tried downloading the games? Are they any good?

I've downloaded several of the games and a lot them are really pretty fun. Mostly knock-offs of old 80's arcade games. They have a helpful 1-5 star rating system to help you avoid the stinkers.
I also discovered you can download books! In keeping with their high-school aged target audience the available titles are classics that we've all run into at school. Oliver Twist, Treasure Island, Alice In Wonderland. I think they have about 8 or 10 total.
When you add up the games, books, and apps (all free mind you)this lil' sucker is one of the coolest freebees's I've ever gotten.
I say hold on to it and see what it can do.

I took mine back to Walmart for $105 store credit. They'll take anything back without a receipt. I'm then preordered a Gameboy Advance, which is the same price. So, basically I'm getting a Gameboy Advance for free.

That's the best idea I've heard yet. Now if only I can get a second Cybiko so I can return it for the 2 new Zelda's...
