I found this lot on CL.  I offered the guy $400 and he countered at $500.  I accepted the $500.  I was supposed to pick up tonight, but he backed out saying someone offered him $700

I had a find like that once while I was in Las Vegas.  Sorry it didn't work out for you.  I think my find was something like $300 and included 2 Marvel Vs. Capcom 2's back when the game sold for $80ish and it also had tons of other systems and games.  Still probably the best find I've ever had.

haha thanks,  as it turns out the buyer who messaged him and said he would pay $700 lowballed him at $350 at the meet up.  So the seller got mad at the guy for promising $700 and wasting his time to drive 45 minutes to the meet.  He called me and I picked it all up today :)

Congrats on getting the lot but I was tardy to the party so I didn't see what was in the listing. I'd love to see pics of what you got.

I'm glad to hear that was you, I just noticed a little while ago that he did get back to me last night. He didn't even try to counter offer he just replied back "sorry, sold for 500".

 Well Xenoblade cover is reversed (took me a sec to realize it was Xenoblade), and you can buy the separate primes for about ~$30 or less

 

 I'm surprised it wasn't more because of the Zelda game.  a lot of craigslist have crazy prices because of either Mario or Zelda games >.>

Hey guys, I need some advice on a possible deal. I've been talking I this guy for about a week and told him the highest I can go is $500, but we couldn't come to an agreement. Today he text me and said I can have it for $600. Do you think it's worth it?

http://williamsport....3877857840.html

I think it's a pretty good bundle, but do you guys think the value is there? Thanks for any suggestions.

    Look at that deal. It's so great!

  • CAGiversary!

Posted 21 June 2013 - 09:51 PM

It's less than $3 an item. Go for it if you have the cash. Besides, if he really maximize the value, he would've charged over $1200 which has been seen in many an ad.

Thank you for the perspective, it does sound pretty good at less than $3 per item. I didn't add everything up of course beforehand, but I figured everything had to total at least $1000. I think I'm gonna message him and try to set it up. Thanks again.

Personally I think you can get a better deal.  Nothing in that bundle look particularly valuable.  What exactly do you want it for, are you planning to resell somethings?  A lot of those games are sports games as well and any multi-disc game is mentioned as a separate game.

x3 seems like too much dreck vs the good stuff for $600 be it you want to keep, sell or keep some sell some and all of the work it would be to test/clean that stuff before selling.

The one thing I'd be concerned about how much of the value is locked up in systems; however it still might be a good break-even type lot if you want to keep a few and resell the rest to get your money back. Another thing with bulk purchases like that is that you never know what freebies might come out of the woodwork; those NES manuals for example could help offset the junkiness of the ps1/ps2 selection.

So today I was able to complete three craigslist transactions.. All of them stellar!

 

1. Met at IHOP at 7am and I picked up complete gamecube zelda: Twilight Princess for $15.

 

2. Met at Chick Fila for a broken slim PS3 and 2 controllers for $30. I arrive and he only has one official controller and the PS3 is missing its warranty sticker. so I still buy it for $30.

 

3. Met at Chick Fila across town and pick up a Black 3ds, Kid Icarus, Pokemon Heart Gold, Mario Kart 7, Super Mario 64 DS, Animal Crossing: Wild World DS, Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 with some other game cases and stylus for $120.

 

I went to gamestop after and traded the controller for $28.80, 3ds for $112.50 and Mk7, Mario 64,PES 2011 for $44..

 

I cant believe everyone showed up on time!

 

Also the PS3 works without any fixing!! so a $1.20 PS3!

Buying to play, it's not to bad a deal. I really try and work him to the $150 mark if possible myself. With a lot of those being available digitally, the price of physical copies seems to have dropped.

The only thing I am really interested in myself is FFVII. Just because its black label. I think I'll pass on it. Thanks for the input. It's too much for me to drop sight unseen especially since he said the condition of the games vary.

I went into it thinking it was a scam.

Turned out to be a kindly gentleman who got it with his scion purchase. Didn't know what it was and was glad to get rid of it

Damn! That's a awesome deal, I paid $250 for mine (though it was all trade credit) and I am happy with the purchase (though the lack of announced releases after fall makes me nervous) can't imagine how thrilled I would be at $50

Posted 27 June 2013 - 10:22 AM

Got a PS3 slim the same day I saw the ad, which is rare.  120GB free space, with two controllers and Madden 13 and Skyrim for $150. Once I trade the two in, it's more like $130.  Not a GREAT deal, but pretty nice since PS3s are still $300 new, and used are $200 with one controller in stores.
