I think he accidentally moved the decimal point over. $25.0 sounds more accurate.

People always try to sell their old sports games. I would think they're worthless but it doesn't stop em from trying.

That would be even stupider because then he would be trying to get $160 for something that he says is only worth $25. He is most definitely just trying to make people think it's worth far more than it actually is, which I don't think really counts as stupid...it's just a bit crazy (it works every now and then, though).

I was joking with that, as a way of saying the real value is about $25.

Unless I'm misreading something, $200 for a PS3 with an upgraded hard drive and 6 games isn't the worst price in the world, especially compared to some of the other stuff that gets posted in this thread.

I don't have a link to the ad itself, but there was an ad that got reposted 4 times on my local craigslist that was as follows:

Title: Rare games

Dungeons and Dragons: Heroes - Xbox, $60
Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance - Xbox, $60
Gauntlet: Dark Legacy - Xbox, $60
Mario Party 8 - GC, $40
Bard's Tale (new and sealed) - PS2, $20

Then he had some really snarky paragraph about how he wouldn't even respond to "lowballs." All of these games were used (except for the last one), and they're not worth nearly as much as he wanted. The last three times he posted the ad, someone made a response ad (one time was me, I dunno who the others were) calling him on his bullshit. Made me feel a little better when I saw that I wasn't the only one who noticed how much of an ass this guy was being.

I'm sure this has been posted before in here, but one thing that really grinds my gears is when people post "x number of games for sale" or whatever on CL but then don't post what games they are. At first I thought they were just scammers, but after replying to a lot of them and usually getting replies back, I've realized that a lot of them seem to be video game illiterate people (maybe parents selling their kids games?) who don't understand why it's important to list the games they're selling.

"
I have an older generation Xbox and Ps2 and I don't need them anymore. Their must be over 50+ plus games all rated from E to M." for $100

At face value, possibly a very good deal, but the person texted me a pic of all the games and I'm not even exaggerating when I say that a good 80% of them are old sports games... only 6 of the 36 (way less than the supposed 50) aren't.

Why is that an issue? As long as they follow the requirements for a gun transfer in PA I don't see why it's a big deal.

Craigslist Terms says no weapons, obviously. And the guy basically wants to trade a PS3 for a handgun, doesn't that just strike anyone odd?

Well, he isn't listing a gun. He's offering to take one as payment.

Why are people so scared of guns?

There's always ads on CL that are looking to trade for firearms. Maybe the guy is done with video games and wants to get more into shooting? It's not like someone is going to hand him a loaded weapon. Depending on the handgun, could be a pretty solid trade.

I see quite a few like this:

"Burnout PS2 Game W/Case - $4 (Ontario Oregon)"

not nearly as bad as some of the other stuff in here, but I just don't see the point. almost anyone who comes to buy your $4 game is going to spend that much or more in gas money getting to you in the first place. I understand being frugal, but seriously, trying to sell something for only $4 on craigslist? seems pointless.

Not really. What I find odd is when people try buy consoles with stud services.
