What I hate are people that type in the history (and by type I mean copy from wikipedia) of a game console as if that somehow makes it more valuable. Some crap like "$200 ORIGINAL nintendo game boy! Produced in 1991, this handheld system revolutionized blah blah blah..."

That and the "these are getting more and more hard to find" line. Yeah, an N64 with a 2 sports games is really hard to find

LOL, I bought a brand new factory sealed 3DS XL for 10 bucks less than that last week on craigslist.

That was when the prices were still super inflated on Amazon so I immediately flipped it for about a 60 dollar profit after shipping and fees. I can't believe somebody actually paid that price for it. I almost felt bad for them.

This is most likely a typing error as in a standard qwerty keyboard o and i are right next to each other, and good typist do not look at the key board while typing so if they have FFS as my one teacher once said it is fully foreseeable to accidently hit this other key

also picture shows the rock band game clearly

I don't think it's that bad either, but the point is that they clearly misspelled the name of the game they are selling, in the title none-the-less.

I am done now, carry on.

True I didn't think of that. I wasnt thinking that they didn't belong to his kid, just that he's overpricing his kids stuff and buyers are supposed to sympathize that he's doing to get his nine year old a PS3. But you could be right that they're not even his kids games they're his idk.

The bad part is there are several decent games in there, but not $200 worth.
Tomb Raider Legend, NFS Underground, Midnight Club 3, Burnout 3, Ratchet and Clank, Simpsons Hit n Run. Tomb Raider Underworld is supposed to be pure shit but sells for several buck on eBay. Also 2 Sony controllers are nice, as long as they are not worn to shit.

I'd give $5 for any of those titles, maybe up to $10, same for the controllers if they're in good shape. Still not $200, but he does have a pretty solid $75 bundle for someone wanting it for their kids or to start a PS2 collection.

I also played a ton of the original, but this one is rated M for Blood, Strong Language, Suggestive Themes, Use Of Drugs, and Violence. I have never played it, but seems like its not appropriate for a 9 year old IMO.

Still doesn't sound strange to me. Maybe it's inappropriate for a kid that age, but I was playing Mortal Kombat when I was even younger than that. It's fairly common for parents to not pay much attention to the ratings on games that their kids want. Otherwise, a huge portion of us probably never would've played the first few GTA games when they came out.

And besides, the Blitz game could simply be one that the dad picked out for himself. Just because the console and games supposedly belong to the kid, that doesn't necessarily mean he's the only one that uses it. My mom certainly bought/rented her fair share of NES games for herself even though it was my console.

Now, I'm not trying to defend the guy and his ad or anything like that...I'm not bothered one way or the other. I just personally don't see anything outlandish about the collection belonging to a 9-year-old.
