I'm a Seahawk fan, and I totally agree with you. That was a BS call.

The Seahawks played a great game and I think they even deserved to win it but they didn't win it.

Apparently there is a new rule in the NFL; if you possess a player who possesses the ball in the endzone . . . its a touchdown. Clearly Jennings came down with the ball and Tate had a hand on it . . . Tate gained 50% possession only well after they came down . . . like a second after they were down.

I can't believe the replay ref didn't overturn the call.

That's not really indicative of value; these discs can usually be had for as little as $15. The most I've seen one go for recently is $40 for a complete copy. I'm surprised the GameShark Pro doesn't sell for more. I mean, it has some compatibility limitations, but that thing was a beast. I used to spend hours hex editing all of my games and submitting the cheats to CheatCC. Man, those were the days...I would really like to see GameShark make a comeback soon.

I'm behind for the last few weeks . . . might do a few makeup posts down the road.

I did want to jump in on the magazine discussion--only a few days late :)

Anyway, I came across this one in my stuff:

Anyone should keep an eye out for it if it has this inside:

I had some problems with delivery (back in 2003) and requested that they send out an issue I missed . . . but they sent this one as well so I had 2 copies. Its not going for as much right now but I sold my disc only copy for $50 on Amazon in May of this year.

I think the Seahawks played great defensively, but offensively they didn't do much, especially against a suspect Green Bay defense.

As for that last play, I don't know how the refs didn't overturn that play either, so obvious that Jennings had the ball, rediculous...

The Seahawks offense looked like crap so not like your argument makes much sense :roll: unless you're saying that they should have tied

on-topic: I've always wonder how some of you guys get great deals. It's rare to find a yard sale with video games around here.

it may still be worth it to send the disc only games since for example the $30 games drop down to $21 for acceptable condition, still not bad considering the values at the moment


Don't hold your breath on this stuff; I noticed a bunch of majorly screwed up TIVs over the weekend and I wouldn't be surprised if half I what I'm sending in will be rejected due to this fact alone. It's a crapshoot, in the past I've seen them accept beat-to-hell discs marked as acceptable and reject cartridge-only games in nice shape marked as acceptable.

I'm sending in some minty complete items as well... it's actually become something of a test because I'm wondering if some of these third party fulfilled by Amazon types are hunting for high grades in order to reseal them and sell them as New.

I noticed these too and have sent out some things I had lying around. Considering hitting up a few gamestops as well. All have cases / artwork, 2 missing manuals.
You think these TIV's are a glitch / mistake and prone to being rejected? Already had plans for that free GC I was getting lol.

I thought it indicated the value in the sense that when I sell games it's primarily on Amazon, and that was a screenshot of the prices on Amazon at the time of my post. If you couldn't find things for a better price than the "going rate" often, this site wouldn't exist. ;)

Me too. This is the first I've even seen Turbo Grafix stuff in my area out in the wild, except for last year I think. A local thrift store had the system and keith courage for around 80 dollars if I remember right. Tried to see if it would make it to 50% off day so I could pick it up for under 40, but it was gone by then.

There was a gameshark released for the PS3 from what I understand but I have no idea what happened to it.

There technically was a GameShark, but it didn't enable cheats; it was more of a media manager/player. I believe the last "real" GameShark made was for Gamecube. We have Xploder for the current-gen consoles, but it just uses modded saves rather than actual cheats (and you really don't need to buy Xploder for that). Le sigh. I know most people these days are against cheating, but I for one miss being able to disable/lower random encounters when playing JRPG's.

But those aren't the going rates; they are inflated prices from sellers doing a lot of wishful thinking. The going rate is the amount that something actually sells for, which is quite a bit lower (around $15-$40 in this case). If you put your copy up for less, you'll likely have the best chance of selling, but only if it's a reasonable price and/or you attract someone who can't use eBay for some reason. Don't get me wrong, I'd be happy to see you bring in a nice chunk of change; I just don't expect it to be quite as profitable as you would like.

You're probably okay if the TIV is close to the base value--heck we could compare notes if you want of what gets accepted or rejected. I didn't trade in any PS2, Gamecube, or newer stuff; I was mainly doing ps1 and NES thru n64. What weirded me out was getting $20-30 credit on games that are normally $5-10...the only other thing I can figure is that Gamestop's plans of moving into the retro market are already having some pre-emptive effect.

I dunno, the sales rankings on some of those are pretty good. Plus the fact that you can use Amazon credit allows for some of the items to sell higher. Amazon is kind of like a rollercoaster; that bottom listing shows that all conditions have been bought up to that amount, but you can make sales for higher than that amount. Listings can go either way really, the price can tumble when supply temporarily outpaces demand, but also the whole market can shift and suddenly one's camped-out high price will be the new low price.

I know what you mean. Just because something is listed Buy it Now on eBay for $100 doesn't mean it's actually worth that much. In my case I bought that about a month ago and sold it (on Amazon) a day later for $59.99, the lowest price at the time.



So I agree they aren't worth that much, but in my experience people do actually pay that much.

So let's hope Obiwan456 didn't toss his!

I think they fixed it... while I was processing stuff the trade in valued changed. Should have gotten in faster... I did manage to get in two copies of Spyro 3 and two copies of Crash 3 for a combined 91.00 so I guess I can't complain...

Commando, Bad Dudes, Major Leauge baseball, castlevania, twin eagle, legend of zelda, legend of kage, adventure island 2, captain america and the avengers, the simpsons bart world, and also world and water rage. He wanted $40, but i managed to get them for $25. Do you think i paid to much?

Nice score on the N64 mic adapter. I've been trying to get ahold of one of those, but they're not cheap (or at least not as cheap as I would like).

Not bad at all. Most of those are worth the standard $2-$5, but Castlevania, Adventure Island 2, and Captain America & The Avengers go for about $10-$15 each.

Yeah, I wasn't sure if it was for an OG xbox or the 360, but then I looked closer and figured it out. It didn't have the cover on the back, but the guy looked around for it. He said his brother traded off a lot of his old stuff and these were the leftovers. He thought I was crazy for wanting the "empty case".

Neutopia 2 actually never came with a case. Some TG16 games were just the card with a manual inside the cardboard box, so having just the card and manual is kinda considered complete since almost everyone threw away the outer boxes
