You can probably ebay off the two gamecube adaptors and the PS2 console too make back most of your purchase.

Offer $175 like larrabee said, if he declines counter with $200 which he should take and then ebay the things I said two and anything else you don't want.

I've bought a 4GB Sansa and a Kodak Camera off UsedVictoria (same idea as craigslist) combined I paid $70. Pretty sure they were stolen but I wont lose any sleep. Had them for several months and no one has kicked down my door.

I have an NES, Sega Genesis and CD combo, and Atari 2800 (?), 4 controllers for the Atari, 2 for the NES, and power supplies for the Genesis/CD. Unsure if they work, but look fine apart from a little dust. No other cords included.

Also have games for the Atari:
Donkey Kong
Asteroids
Night Driver
Swordquest
Space Invaders
Casino
Bowling
Missle Command
Starmaster
Berzerk
COmbat
Breakout
Pac-Man

This is a listing I'm looking into. what do you guys think? How much should I offer? I'm afraid everything might be broken

Oh geez, where to begin...

3 years ago - Umm...my girlfriend and soon-to-be fiance.

'bout 18 months ago - 4 busted white Japanese Saturn consoles, $20 for the lot. They're all intact, just have issues with disc alignment. It'd be a killer deal if i knew what to do with them :-P

last summer - US Saturn w/4-in-1 cart, Shining Force 3, Dragon Force, Shining the Holy Ark, Shining Wisdom, Virtual Hydlide, and a factory sealed basketball game, all complete, for $25 total

2 months ago - Black DS Lite, Hotel Dusk, Big Brain Academy, Rocket Slime, and FFV Advance, all complete, for $100

1 month ago - Logitech Harmony 880 remote ($249 retail) for $80

Last week - Xbox 360 Core w/HDD, control, Gears of War, MLB 2K7 (sealed), FEAR, CoD3, Double Agent, Dead Rising, all for $300

Always on the lookout for deals on CL. They're everywhere.

While not being from the area, I was checking out the Philly CL pages before and found this under the generic title "Real Arcade Game". The owner says it 'needs a bulb', whatever that means, but that the sound and video play fine. You know, if they mean the marquee sign only needs a bulb, this is a great deal.

Thanks man, this guy just said his old tennant left it all there. But he didn't include the PS2 Av cables, looks like I need to go to gamestop. I need to buy a switch too, now I got a PS2, PS1, Gamecube, N64, SNES, NES, Genisis, DC, hooked up. Maybe Gamestop has those too.

Yeah, the one that sells for a pretty penny.

$5.00.

Damn Larabee, that's a crazy good score. PS2 AV cables should be no problem...I think they are also interchangable with PS3's, maybe even the last PSX's.

There are TONS of "fallen off a truck" games on craigslist all the time.

I've picked up brand new sealed PS3 and X360 games for $20-30 quite a few times now.

Ya I actually went down to Game Stop and got a Universal S-Video connector. So I have my N64, Game Cube and PS2 all on one cable now.

Also I bought a switch off Newegg, its getting cluttered with all these systems now.

I've been trying to buy a used 360 system now for a few times. The prices some people want is amazing. A used Core, 2 Wires Conrollers, 1 Game = $400. But hey, he will give it to me for $350 since EB sells them for $400. WTF.

Edit: He e-mailed me back claiming the Core is $399.99 new, even though I sent him 3 links with the $299.99 price. Damn.

HAHAHA there are so many highball sellers on craigslist, I guess they balance out the lowballing buyers (like me).

But that is ridiculous. I see X360 premiums that claim to be in good working condition for $300 or less on CL all the time. That moron is just trying to find a sucker. Just watch - he will have that same ad posted for MONTHS. I've seen it before all the time.

There is one guy trying to sell Star Wars #1 (Marvel, i.e. the comic) for $40 or so. He's had the same ad for probably close to a year now. Dude, it ain't going to sell. Lower the price.

I had this one shitbird in the Valley who was selling a few vintage games that I would have picked up with a CiF deal. The beeyotch actually pulled a "oh I've raised the prices on them" move, so I was ready to tell her where she could stick her games (but first I wanted to find out if they were at least complete, so I could maybe still score a decent deal. Nope. I didn't even bother responding to her after that, though I REALLY wanted to tell her off. Go sell them on eBay then, BEEYOOOOOTCH!!!

Check out this email exchange:


I WROTE:

Hey, if you haven't sold the games yet, I would love to pick up. Let me know if you still have them, as well as where you are located.

I am interested in:

- Metroid Prime Hunters: First Hunt (DS)(DEMO) $2.00
- Breath of Fire II (SNES) $5.00
- Lufia II: Rise of the Sinistrals (SNES) $5.00
- Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest (SNES) $8.00
- Breath of Fire II (SNES) $6.00
- Super Mario AllSTARS & Super Mario World (SNES) $7.00
- Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask GOLD EDITION (N64) $10.00
- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Hyper Stone Heist (Sega Genesis) $5.00


SHE WRITES:

im sorry to say that changes have ben made to the prices...
the ones that i've raised up in price are the ones in bold text...
let me know if your still interested...

- Metroid Prime Hunters: First Hunt (DS)(DEMO) $2.00
- Breath of Fire II (SNES) $15.00
- Lufia II: Rise of the Sinistrals (SNES) $18.00
- Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest (SNES) $25.00
- Breath of Fire II (SNES) $18.00
- Super Mario AllSTARS & Super Mario World (SNES) $18.00
- Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask GOLD EDITION (N64) $20.00
- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Hyper Stone Heist (Sega Genesis) $5.00

TO WHICH I REPLY:

Are these games at least complete with box, instructions, maps etc.?

HER FINAL COMMENT:

nope no box, no instructions... On ebay and everywhere else they retail from $15 up to $48 and thats just for the game...


YEAH, OKAY THERE...THEN PUT 'EM ON EBAY!!!:roll:

Just picked up Resistance Fall of Man and MotorStorm on my lunchbreak.

Guy was advertising 4 PS3 games:

Resistance
Motorstorm
2 sports games (NHL or NBA or Madden, can't remember but didn't want them)

$35 each.

I asked him where he was located and whether he still had Resistance, and whether it was complete or not. He told me he worked in Santa Monica, really close to my work. Games are open, used but complete and in perfect condition. Awesome.

I arrange to meet up, and tell him to bring Resistance, and I might be interested in Motorstorm.

I drive over there, meet up, check out the games and offered him $50 for both, cash in face. He resisted a bit, but I told him I really wasn't interested in Motorstorm since it's a basic racing game and will be $20-30 in stores in a couple of months anyway.

He took the $50. So now I have 3 PS3 games (sealed new, probably stolen Marvel Ultimate Alliance, $25 a month ago, also craigslist) for my free PS3. MWAHAHAHA!!! I hope Motorstorm is at least decent and has weapons or serious wrecking ability...
