Exactly, Survivalism. If you're doing it to simply play, that's one thing, but for flipping or "invest"-ing, most people's opinion on what they think of the item, other than price, is subjectively pointless. If someone says the quality of the item (such as gameplay) is crap, will that deter you from buying it for cheap when you think (or know) it's valuable? You don't need personal opinion when investing. Not that those sites are the hard facts on values, mind you, but it's better than someone on a forum saying it's a "good" or "ok" price (or worse, someone who says, "It's worth what someone will pay for it." Yeesh).

I only ask because you guys seem more trustworthy. Plus I don't resell.( I actually can't) Nut i like to "invest" Like to buy stuff for my collection, that may hold value for the future. Plus..well...those websites don't have personal opinions ether. I could go and find the prices. But if I ask here I can get "Yeah its a good deal, but.......".

Well you people aren't very harsh. When I said "investing" I ment it in a way for like my children, if I have any, to be able to sell or keep, or me if we get in hard times. Also I do look up things but opinion matters to me. Something could be worth craploads of money, and one of you says that its not fun or usefull or good etc. Besides like I said I don't, woulden't (at least for video games I want) and CAN'T sell my things. And furthermore I would use personal opinion investing. If you ask why, I say WHY NOT!!!!! M'kay?

Picked up a couple things recently...

Complete in box copy of Yoshi's Story-10
I'm actually not a fan of the game. I played it and kinda hated it BUT I'm kinda a fan of the character (understatement) so I figured why not? By the looks of it, I could turn around a fair profit if I opted to sell it but I kinda want to keep it, lol. He had a bunch of other interesting games in the lot but was asking ebay prices for some of them. I may go back and try to talk him down on some of the stuff.

Bunch of games-10
Included in this lot was Wii Play, some GBA Naruto game, some Revolution 4 DS cart, some PS3 MMA game, Kane and Lynch and Pokemon Emerald. Obviously the Pokemon game was the pick of the litter. I already traded in some of those other games for another game more worthy of flipping/trading in Pokemon Crystal.

Man I can't wait until I get my car fixed so I can stop all this flipping.

It's probably an okay price for collecting, I'm not sure if I would touch it for flipping though at that price (accessories could be finicky, might not have all the parts). It could be $100 of stuff there if the glove comes with the sensors (which the ad says it doesn't--so you might be paying about what everything is worth there)

Found another neat deal today too. Some dude was getting rid of his boxed sega saturn which I really didnt need since I already have 4 but the deal was for everything and he wouldnt part out the games. For $50 bucks got complete copies of:
Guardian Heroes
Die Hard Arcae
X-Men Children o the Atom
And Virtua Cop 2 with 2 light guns
Plus a Boxed and complete Sega Saturn Model 2 with an extra controller.
I can probably make my $50 bucks back by selling the console by itself so I think it was a good deal.

Guardian Heroes HD just came out so that might have dropped the value but I thought Guardian Heroes was one of the most expensive Saturn games. Easily $90+. And an awesome game.

Broken 160 GB Playstation 3 Slim (Not Pictured, System Only) - 30
7 PC Games - 10
NES With Hookups, 2 1st Party Controllers , Zapper & 8 Games (System, SMB/Duck Hunt, Hookups & Controllers Not Pictured) - 20
GBA System With 11 GB/C Games - 25


Old Craigslist finds from the past couple of months. I saw an ad many months ago that said something about having stuff for a yardsale and not having said yardsale because it rained on the day they were going to have it. In said ad they wanted to get rid of everything for one price and in this ad it mentioned a Nintendo system with games and between figuring it would most likely be a GameCube and them wanting to sell everything in one shot I didn't bother. A month or two and a few reposts later I noticed the same ad but with a lower price for everything. They wanted 40 for everything and I finally figured what the hell and asked about the Nintendo, it ended up being an NES and they were open to the idea of selling just that and asked me to make an offer which I did in 20 dollars.

The other 3 were all asking price. I was told the PS3 wouldn't get a picture so I figured I'd take a chance. When I got it home I did get a picture but the system would reset by itself. I had a hell of a time doing so without the system resetting on me but did get it reformatted and working for a while before it started resetting constantly again. I haven't gotten to it yet but looking around online it seems as if it could be a simple fix with the power supply.

Today I noticed an ad for a model 2 genesis AND model 2 Sega CD. It has what looks like around 60 (:drool:) loose Genesis games and fifteen CD games, (including sonic CD :applause:). There also appears to be a ziploc bag of manuals. The lady wants $150 for all of it. Might try to talk her down a bit, but I'm pouncing on this deal. I'm making about an hour drive to pick it up this weekend, will post pics later if she doesn't go back on her word and sell it before then...

NES System With 3 1st Party Controllers, Zapper & Generic Hookups & 52 Games - 110

The systems in the crate are from this bundle and the small NES bundle I posted about a week ago. This bundle came with a NES with the smooth texture to the gray of the system shell, the wrong AC Adaptor (but seemed to work ok) & generic A/V cords. This was from an ad on Craigslist from a while back, I can't remember what it said exactly but it either said how many games were included or a rough approximate in probably 50 games and was best offer. I was rather pessimistic with the lazy effort and big expectations you see/hear about so much on Craiglist but shot off an e-mail asking about a list. Got one back and not knowing exactly what others would offer and what kind of ideas the seller may have about what they wanted out of it I offered 110, was told that they wanted to get back in touch with the person that made the first offer (I guess to let them know a higher offer was made and to maybe see if they would best my offer) but ended up getting back to me a day or two later to finalize things. Zelda was actually a surprise as it was found after we made the deal and was added in, I think this was actually 53 games and I'm guessing if so the missing game is a SMB/Duck Hunt.

welp I did make a purchase on that sega genesis/cd. Bought everything for $125. had 58 games total and 15 cd games, 6 controllers, model 2 genny and model 2 Sega CD. One problem... the CD unit doesn't fucking work... :bomb: won't spin the disc. If anyone knows how to fix something like this, I could use some advice...

If not, I guess I can always use Kega Fusion. :cry:

HOORAY! I somehow managed to get that Sega CD working! I opened it up and made the wires have better connection to the motors and it seems to have worked! I was so happy I went and finally got around to taking pics of the lot. (after playing Sonic CD for about 3 hours :D) Bought all of this for $125.

Yesterday's SNES haul:

Spoiler


Ninja Warriors, Mario RPG, Earthworm Jim, Legend of Mystical Ninja, Zombies Ate My Neighbors and The Jungle Book, all for $50. About half off the current value, even though technically I overpaid for The Jungle Book. Helps that they're almost all awesome games, too.

I already posted in the "Is this game rare?" thread but I figured I'd come in here. For 500.00 in Amazon credit I was able to get put onto an Amazon gift card, and 500.00 in cash, I got:
Boxed TurboGrafx 16
Boxed Turbo Express (both systems in great condition)
Turbo Booster
Turbo Tap for 5 players
Turbo Joystick
Two gamepads

And 92 games, which falls three short of the North American collection. I'm missing Bonk 3, Magical Chase (which sounds like a game I will never own given its huge value) and World Sports Competition. All of the games have their original jewel case style case and only four are missing manuals, and then he got Turbo Grafx cases for the games that originally did not ship in a jewel case, and made these really looking professional labels for the spines. A few of those games even have their original cardboard box, including Air Zonk.

Maybe not a huge steal, but a good deal nontheless, and one hell of a find. I'll never find another Turbografx lot like it again. Posted Image

First time I've seen this thread! The only things on Craiglist around here anymore are overpriced 360 and Wii games.

However last summer I went and got a 80gb PS3 that was not working for $60. I figured I could try to fix it at that low of a price. He plugged it in and showed that it would not play discs. When I get it home it worked perfectly! Apparently it will not play discs if it's plugged into an ungrounded outlet. It's still going strong a year and a half later.

Only other good deal would be an NES with NES Advantage, NES Max, 2 zappers, 4 controllers, 2 Nintendo game racks and 52 games for $45.

Yes, it was 500 in Amazon credit and 500 in cash. Sorry for not explaining that better.

EDIT: I just found one of the three games in the mess of games he said he didn't have in the lot. World Sports Competition, which is 50-75 dollar game with manual and case. :D Now all that is left for TG-16 is Magical Chase, which I will never get unless I blow Satan's cock, and Bonk 3, which is attainable, albeit in the 100 dollar range.

NES & SNES Systems with Everything Needed And Some Misc Extras (Pretty Sure It Also Included A Zapper I Misplaced)
26 SNES Games
160 NES Games

350


Saw an ad on Craigslist selling some stuff including a few systems with games that was best offer. I sent an e-mail asking about a list and the seller stressed that everything was sold together (as in each system with all of it's games) and basically said that they knew this stuff held some value but on the other end of the coin also stressed that if a reasonable enough offer was given it was going since it was rarely if ever used anymore and also mentioned that they were working on a list. Sent me a list shortly afterwards in another e-mail and I figured up 10 per a system, and anywhere from 1-3 per a game depending on what the game was. It added up to 344 with some unknow extra controllers etc not figured so I rounded up to 350 which they took. For the last picture - 1) The Star Tropics manual still has the letter from Uncle Steve attached to it unused 2) The Milton Bradley game with a photo copied manual over it is Digger T. Rock: Legend of The Lost City 3) Bo Jackson Baseball to Xevious all have those 1 page printed up shortened manuals with them 4) To the right of those 3 is Quattro Sports with printed up manual 5) Two over from Shinobi Is Air Fortress 6) The 5 Tengen games on the right are Rolling Thunder, Toobin', Super Sprint, Ms. Pac-Man and Skull & Crossbones
