Also saw a Donkey Kong Board Game that was pretty cool, they wanted $20 though so I had to pass. Looks like this:

Now, it may seem like a great deal for the sheer amount of controllers... but if you can see, a majority of them have frayed cables or other imperfections. Only 2 of the N64 controllers have good sticks as well:cry:. Also not pictured are 8 PS2 controllers and some other crap that was in the box.

You might do decent on the controllers if you know how to break them up.

Gamecube - $4 each, if you can find a Gamestop that still takes them.
Working n64 - Individual sale
n64 bad sticks - Salvage lot
NES and SNES - a lot of the heavy resellers like listing these in pairs, official nintendo stuff will pull in a bit more than all the knock-offs floating around, maybe $10 per lot + shipping.

Aye, I was thinking of just putting the controllers together and selling like that since I don't want to really go through the hassle of repair and etc.

Day 2 Yielded some good stuff too.

1st sale started at 7AM, but when I got there at 7:15 they were barely in the process of setting up. Ended up picking up the following for $10
- Stuntman Ignition - PS2
- Peter Jackson's King Kong game - PS2
- NFS Pro Street - PS2
- NFS Most Wanted - PS2
- Mortal Kombat Deadly Alliance - PS2
- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Battlenexus
- Parappa the Rappa - PSP

All are complete except for Mortal Kombat

Second sale I found a SNES and a couple of games in a bucket with a bunch of cords. Guy saw me looking and said $2 for it all, so I took it. Ended up with the following:
- SNES w/ 1 Controller and Power Adapter (no rf cable)
- Games were Tetris 2 and Dr. Mario/Tetris Combo Cartridge
- Mad-catz multi A/V cable (has hookups for xbox 350/xbox/gamecube-n64/ps1-ps2-ps3

Third sale netted the following for $3
- White Gameboy Advance AGB-001 - Works but it looks like front molding that goes over the screen is missing.
- Dave Mirra BMX, Tony Hawk Skater 2, and Rocketpower Gettin' Air Gameboy Color games.

At the last sale I picked up the following 360 games for $10. All were complete except Shrek.
- Dead or Alive 4
- Condemned 2 - Bloodshot
- Shrek the Third

Kind of burned out on garage sales after this weekend, so not sure when I will hit them up again.

Not trying to be the bearer of bad news, but I think that GTA III for the Xbox was only one half of the GTA Double Pack that released for the Xbox much later on after the games had been out on the PS2 for a while already.

It was bundled with GTA Vice City and never sold in a standalone version, which is why it has a kinda generic coverart with only the name of the game on it and not much else.

The good part about the Xbox versions though was that you could use your own music by loading up your CD's on the HDD of the Xbox.;)

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.

Black Slim PS2 Console w/ all cords: $5
Diablo for PS1: $2
Final Fantasy IX & Resident Evil 3: $1/ea.

Good morning.

Sonic 2: 1.00
Turok Dinosaur Hunter: 1.00
Xbox 360 controller: 2.00
Nintendogs Edition DS: 2.00 (no charger, did come with a 3ds charger... ordered a charger for 5.00 shipped on Amazon)
Halo: 1.00
Madden 10: 1.00 (360)
Mercenaries 2: 1.00 (360)
Jade Cocoon 2: 1.00
Jak and Daxter: 1.00
Jak 3: 1.00
Saints Row the 3rd: 1.00 (complete with online pass though have to check if its used)


As an update, the online pass for Saints Row the 3rd was unused. Halo does not seem to work. It starts and I can create a profile but when I choose to start a level it starts to load then says disc may be dirty or damaged. May try getting it resurfaced if I can find somewhere cheap.

I wasn't aware of that. I thought the "multi" port was for a multi-tap device or something... (I've been out of retro gaming for a while). Thanks for the heads up.

I thought the addition of the cable sweetened the deal on the SNES.

Yeah, SNES, Nintendo 64, and Gamecube all have the same type of AV connection.

It's a good deal, but it's still a mass produced game system and worth about the same on ebay as a clean NES with a handful of good games. :)

Here are my finds from today:

For the NES:
Castlevania
Zelda
Link
Double Dragon
controller
Zapper
$1 each and the games came with sleeves


Complete copy of Contra Hard Corps for the Genesis - $5


Wavebird Gamecube controller - $3


Wii games:
New Super Mario Bros
Mario Super Sluggers
CoD Black Ops
Pokemon Battle Revolution
All complete for $5 each


Didn't really haggle on prices today and passed on some overpriced stuff (NES system for $40, Genesis system with MK and 2 sports games for $40). Also missed an NES with who knows what. Arrived 40 minutes early for the sale and there were already a ton of people and whoever bought it was long gone.

If you aren't keeping pikmin 2 i'd sell it ASAP. US is getting the new play control version for the wii this summer.

I literally had to check this because I'm like "he's got to be full of it, right? No way Nintendo is releasing this three years after the fact." Then i saw you were right and I could only shake my head at how bad the Wii is doing this year that they are resorting to finally bringing over a bunch of RPGs and Pikmin 2 that they had no intentions to before.

Wii Motion Plus, New Rocketfish PS3 Controller, Spyro The Dragon - 11
Capcom Co-op Colection Volume 1 (Disc Only) - .50 (Asking Price)
Twisted Metal 2 (Disc Only) - 1
Shenmue 2 (Missing DVD) - .50
Professor Layton And The Unwound Future (Complete) - 5 (Asking Price)

The first 3 were asking 1 for Spyro and 5 each for the other 2. Twisted Metal 2 was 3 but took 1. Shenue 2 was 1 but took .50. Unwound Future was a very nice parting gift at the last sale of the day and surprising that it was still around shortly before noon.
