My Goodwill sometimes has Xboxes that range from $4.99 to $9.99. I already got one a few years ago for $14.99 that included the cords and a controller. It's easier getting into a 'new' console, if the initial purchase at the very least includes all the cords and a controller or two so you don't have to buy extra accessories in order to play a game (besides the games themselves)

Nice haul with the N64. I don't see any good lots anymore. I think the area I am in for C-list is pretty busted these days. 90% of the ads are resellers and flea markets trying to unload junk. Just bundles of games. I keep an eye out but there is just so much crap these days. I haven't gotten anything game related for probably 6 months or so off the C-list here.

When I was up home a month ago for like 4 hours I happened to get a pretty good deal. It was a UK DS w/ voltage converter and 6 games for 40. Games were Mario Kart, NSMB, Mario 64, Zelda and two others.

Then a week later was that neon sign I posted last month too when I was visiting home.

Down here I use to once in a while do well because I'd offer what I think is fair value for stuff that I want to keep a collection or get a real real real big collection and have enough money upfront for it.

Very nice! Good collection of NES games along with the boxed N64 games.

I forget to mention I picked up a Wacom Intuos 3 complete with carrying case, extra tips, the mouse, etc. for $75. Not am amazing deal but it was one of the bigger drawing area ones and I'm guessing I probably saved 75 - 100 versus what I would pay online.

I got a REALLY good trade last night. Traded my HP 20" 2010i LCD monitor, which I bought for 30 BUCKS, for a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0. It's in perfect condition too.

Not even sure how good of a deal I got, but paid $30 for (all SNES, - really wanted bomberman):

- Super Bomberman
- Demolition Man
- The 7th Saga
- Carrier Aces (CIB)

He also had Chrono Trigger for $50 & Secret of Mana for $40 ... Worth it?

CT, yes, Secret of Mana, not really. Average prices if cart only. Better if CIB.

It's only worth it if you're a purist hardcore collector. If you just want to play the game get it on PS1 or DS. You'll spend less then half that.

I prefer it on the DS as 8 bit and 16 bit games work well portable to me. Though I never personally played the SNES version.

    Look at that deal. It's so great!

  • CAGiversary!

Posted 12 November 2012 - 10:08 PM

Yeah, it's a little hard to decide if it is really worth paying $50 for Chrono Trigger for SNES. I have the DS and PS1 versions, I have quibbles with those two versions for different reasons (text size too small on DS, and PS1 loading times) At least it's on the VC for $8. I personally wouldn't pay more than $30, but it's your choice.

It's strange to see GoW on such an old system. On other hand, before being painted the NES likely had yellowing, so this paint job is an improvement over what it likely looked like before.

Why wouldn't that person pick something related to the console? GoW? It would be like doing a Kirby themed Xbox 360.

So I need your help guys. Some guy on Craig's is selling a few RPGs. But not sure if the games are legit or what I should pay for the lot.

"This is a very nice lot of some nice rare games. The lot consists of a Brand new never opened Final Fantasy 7 , Final Fantasy 8(just 4discs), Final Fantasy 9(Black label), Final Fantasy X-2, Vagrant Story(Just disc), Grandia(Complete), Mario RPG, E.VO. Search for Eden, Lunar Silver Star Story(Complete in box), Guardian Heroes(disc only), legend of Dragoon(complete), that's it for now, I think. Best offer takes them, I know what they're worth, so don't lowball me. This is a great bundle, some games worth over $100 easy. For more info text Thanks. All pics there except for Final Fantasy x-2 and Legend of Dragoon
P.S Final Fantasy 7, never been touched in it's protective cover(pic was just saved from Pc)"


Edit: the guy is asking $250 for the lot but I think I'll pass since he seems a bit shady. I asked him if the pics he posted of the games where the actual games and he said "some of them", he just got the pics online and posted them on his ad.

The dude just might need to make rent or a car payment. Let him know you will pay his asking price if the items are as described and satisfactory to you. If you meet up and its shit, bail out.

Everyone who joins the CAG XBox One Conga Line from now until my 11 referrals are met are entered into a drawing to win a FREE $60 game from me! So get going - the Gamefly referral costs nothing, and others are as low as $1!

It's a little expensive in my opinion (Although Lunar is easily worth around $100). Like others said though, go check it out and buy it if you like it.

Just got home from picking up a Wii U (basic) with NSMB U for $140. (he already deleted the listing I was going to link it) I thought it was too good to be true and I get there and it's this huge biker dude (the thought crossed my mind he could just demand the money and give me nothing in return) but he was cool he said Gamestop was only going to give him $120. Everything looks like new. I wasn't really interested in Wii u right now I knew I would get one eventually but for that price I couldnt pass it up.

That's why I check my local craigslist video game section daily. You never know what you may find. I've also scored a 3DS for $50 before.

One of the best craigslist outings that I've pulled in a while was the PSP Go that I pulled today for $20. It only came with the charger but is in really good condition.

Doesn't surprise me at all. My copy had wear when I first bought it and got crunched pretty good when it was on the top of a large box and I closed the lid (it was a little too full). The cardboard is thin and it has next to no reinforcement.

Found an N64 w/ expansion pack, two controllers and 15 games for $30

PSX w/ Xenogears, FFVII, FFVIII, Bushido Blade 2 and Bust-A-Move '99 (all RPGs are black label) for $50

Yeah, my Zelda Skyward Sword bundle is still sealed, and even when I got it, it had some slight paint/chipping on the outer box.
