At a yard sale, i got a Pikachu and a grey GBA sp case both for $1. I remember back then that people had counterfeit, so im not sure if this pikachu is or not. The tag has a copyright 1995-2009. The grey SP case had a UMD disc of XXX state of the union.
Fleat Market: People selling 360 games for $10 a piece and ps2 games for $5 that was old common titles. I say a guy with a box. He had a NES gun, 2 controllers, 2 Sega CD. He beat me to a N64 black console with all the cables and came in a n64 case for $15. I wasnt really looking for that, but was looking for a Gameboy
I picked up 3 Gameboy games (not sure. Is it call gameboy color?) Pokemon Yellow pikachu edition, Pokemon Red, and Pokemon Silver. I know nothing about these games, but got all 3 for $2.
Remember, this is my first yard sale/ flea market purchase. Please give feedback of how i did. Did i paid too much for all this stuff? Im still trying to learn the CAG way of finding and getting the best deals. Did I overpaid for any of this stuff?
You should not have a problem if you put the pikachu plush in the washing machine, just make sure it doesn't have any electronics inside. Obviously don't put a plush with electronics into the washer, that would be bad.
As I recently learned you have to really watch with Xbox 360 games, a lot of games have multiple editions, and some editions are worthless. Some games are pretty cheap at Gamestop too so you want to check there as well. Most Xbox 360 games you see at sales will probably not be worth $10 each. The original oblivion would be worthless for example since the GOTY and 5th anniversary editions are out and both contain extra content on the discs that the original edition does not contain. If you purchased the original oblivion it would probably be cheaper to purchase the GOTY edition again just to get the extra content that is on the discs. Mass effect has a platinum hits version out that has an extra disc with more content on it too, so you wouldn't want to be buying the original version of that. Dragon Age origins ultimate edition and Mass Effect 2 have DLC codes in them that you would miss out on if you bought the games used. You don't want to buy the original dragon age origins since the ultimate edition is out that also contains a DLC code for mass effect 2 not to mention the ultimate edition contains a ton of DLC on the disc that would cost you in the live marketplace.
Obviously if you want to play the game then you want to get the edition with the most content on the disc (the most complete edition) so you don't have to download stuff from the live marketplace since DLC is insanely expensive on there. This assumes you want to play the most complete edition of your chosen game for the least cost to you.
Hopefully I haven't confused anyone here, its really tough to remember all of this even for me. Thankfully I have a decent mind for remembering things.
