Since is a hacked PSP with buttons MISSING worth a premium 360? I've got one with all the buttons still! It must be worth a 60gb PS3.

Nah, right now it's only good for a 20gb. Hack it, then it'll be worth a 60gb.

He's been trying to sell his stuff for a VERY long time, could be close to half a year now.

I don't think that is bad, it's not like it is hurting him to have it all listed, it's like times when I'll list rare dvds on amazon marketplace for extremely high prices if none other are listed...and guess what sometimes you find that desperate person and it sells, if not you are only out a couple minutes of your time.

When you start asking for $50 for King of Fighter or Grandia 2, you are too over priced. I can get most of the games a lot cheaper from ebay stores or amazon marketplace.

alright, I just gotta pass this along
I found a listing that said : XBOX 360 premium - $300

The description says:
X-box very new cond. will all original ppers, box, cords, comes with 3 games cabela's hunting game, TWO WIRELESS CONTROLLERS, THIS IS THE CORE SYSTEM & WAS PURCHASED FOR $400 PLUS THE GAMES 3* $50 PLUS $40 EXTRA REMOTE SO ITS A GOOD DEAL AND IM NOT TRYING TO MAKE ANY MONEY OFF IT, BUT WOULD LIKE TO GET SOMETHING BACK. SO IF INTERESTED CALL 425 315 2796

I email her: you advertise in the heading as it being a premium then state that it's a core in the details. figure it out.

Her reply: are just being a jackass about it, or are you interested in the thing?? Its my husbands im selling it for him, so excuse me for not knowing the technical terms on the video game BS, maybe if you pull your head out of your ass and realize that people have other things to do it life than just sit around & play video games then you'd understand not many people know all the xbox terminology. From my ad I hope you at least gathered its the Newest xbox and it comes with the god father and open season too if I didn't list that.


God I hate people.

If she was so unknowing about the different types of XBOX's why did she state premium in the title and use the term "core" in the description?

There's not a single wii locally that's less than $375CAD. Gouge city! It ranges up to $800 for the unit alone. Dolts.

There is, however, "PLAYSTATION 3 MUST SELL TONIGHT - $150". Hmm. I wonder why tonight?

A response to a "Looking for old games" ad I put up:

hi i might have something you defenty buy off me i have a game has 1000 old atari games build in controler it cost me $100.00 brand new sell it no if/ands/but $100.00 because valuable system 1000 old games build in controler no cartrages plug&play if intrested pleas call me at ...


Aparently an Atari Flashback or one of those bootleg things from the flea market. I responded with fake enthusiasm:

Wow I am very interested! Its just a controller? How can that be?! It must be worth thousands!


All sarcasm was lost, however, and at my feigned interest the scammer obviously smelled blood in the water:

hi i'm vinnie's mom my son made a mistake i brought game for $900.00 it valuable now it has build in 1000 games i sell it for not $100.00 like he said it'd valuable but $900.00 no less all games build in controller mint condition please call we explane better over phone to you number here is...


Hahaha. Fake interest = 9x jump in price. Of course, I was still getting a chuckle, so:

$900 is a bargain! I'm still eager to purchase it, but I'm having trouble getting through on your line. Can you tell me what Atari games it has? I need to play E.T. for Atari, its supposed to be really good!


And then...

it has every game including YOU WANT E.T. THE NEXT TERESTRAL it's there ans some older nintdo games build into it like super mario brothers you must gome here see it i can call you expaine to you about it if you have a phone i can call you please give me your number i got unlimited local/long distance so i can contact you
please email me back your name/number to expaime




However, someone was coming to buy it for $1500 that day if I didn't match that in cash. Its a shame I missed that opportunity! They found something else, though...

hi i'm sorry but a lady came today with $1.800 all cash so the game is sold she was very very happy she never ever seen a 1000 games build in controller the she was amazed 1000 games build in arginal games she came from the state CONN. she put her car on ferry the drove rest of the way i'm very sorry but it was more offered plus not loosing out i told you rush it valuable it wouldn't be here long i might be selling my SEGA GENISIS 16-BITS game mint condition i called sega asked them how much can i sell it for they said sir you have ariginal sega it valuable try $600.00 machine/controlers/power adapter/wire goes to tv they no make sega genesis 16 bits any more then i have 50 greate sega tapes i asked sega how much tapes i make they said mint condition $10.00 per peace i sell whole thing ALL CASH NO WIRE TO BANK $1.400 no lower please let me know if intrested in sega i can make photos of games and attach them if you request that please email


I countered with an offer of $2500 if they could ship to me in Nigeria, then they called me a scammer and stopped responding to my emails.

Its a shame, though. I missed out on an ariginal Sega with tapes!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA Ahhh man, that is just classic. If the misspelling of every other word wasn't intentional on their part, I'd have to say that if the shoe were on the other foot, you could offer them a dog turd and call it a 'rare collectors item' for $1000 and they'd bite.

That reminds me of the person locally who had Breath Of Fire IV and the guide for it on CL. Every time I asked about completeness, I would state what I meant. And every time, they would respond with 'it has some scratches, but they all play'. <shakes head> It amazes me how some people who post ads online remember to even breathe on a daily basis.

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.
