I had a pretty sweet find a week or two ago that I never got around to bragging about (or snapping pictures of):

 

$150 for an R2D2 Xbox 360 (320 GB) with 2 controllers (no 3PO, unfortunately) and:

Black Ops 2

Assassins Creed 3

GTA IV Complete

Arkham City GOTY

Gears of War Judgement

Gears of War 3

Halo 2

 

The guy didn't have a price on his listing so I texted $150 assuming it to be a total lowball, but he was fine with it. I kept the system and gears games, then traded in my old system (250GB slim) and the rest of the games for $260 after bonuses at Gamestop. Some decent profit to put towards next gen. Not to mention how freaking awesome the R2 system is.

Had a CL trade today. Someone wanted to trade his stuff for a Different game system, he advertised for an xbox.
He had a gameboy with all the Pokemon gameboy games, red, blue, crystal, gold, silver ( no yellow, sadly) and trading card game plus link cables.

I had an extra limited edition pokemon DS lite that I picked up at a garage sale a couple weeks ago for $10. I offered that with a couple Star Wars DS games that none of my kids play and he took it.

Basically I got everything for $10, since that's what that DS cost me originally. I'm happy.

Well, today I probably missed out on the single best posting on my local craigslist in all the years I've been watching it.

Most likely that is a collector messing with people, but in the slight chance its not the new thing on Craigslist is all these people from Reddit that email and tell the person eBay prices on stuff to kill deals like this.

Yeah, you're probably right. I mean, the thought did occur to me but it's not much of a prank if so. It's baffling to think of some guy reading my "hey man I'm interested in these" email and getting any kind of worthwhile laughs out of it.  :???: But then people post ads for fake yard sales and shit all the time so who knows.

I'm interested in the Hori Tekken stick, since it's 20 and could be a cheap enough project if I swap out the PCB.  I could add Sanwa buttons but it looks like I'll have to file down the metal tabs,  But I'm not too sure about getting it. Hmm...

I saw that ad minutes after posting, It was so cliche I didnt even bother trying to contact the person.

 

Right before that I picked up, a n64 and 37 games with some solid titles for 75 bucks, right in, levittown my own backyard. Otherwise, coming across a good deal on LI and NYC is rare for me now a days, i used to find good deals weekly.

I also saw that sega saturn post hours later, never got a reply.  

And I agree that it's so hard to find a good deal on li and nyc craiglists these days, and if you do, they are gone real quick.

I used to get good deals weekly, now I'm lucky I make one good deal on their every couple of months

That stick routinely sells for 20 these days for a reason.  Its incredibly tight spaced, making pcb swaps a pain.  Button swaps are not impossible but not pop in and swap.  The stick swap is insanely difficult.  Its best to use it as is for someone who doesnt know about fighters and get a real stick for yourself.

On a side note, anyone know if a PSP 1000 screen would work in a PSP 2000? I picked up some broken ones for spare parts to fix a case on my PSP, and noticed the 2000 fires up, but the screen is bad, and the 1000 won't start up, but looks like the screen is fine.

From what I can tell from a quick google search it might work. However the resolutions are different. Also looking at deal extreme, the dimensions are different between the 1000 and 2000 replacement screens.

 

1000 - http://dx.com/p/repl...-psp-1000-67676

2000 - http://dx.com/p/repl...slim-2000-12884

 

I would honestly just take the safe route and order a replacement 2000 screen.

Ended up getting the lot today. Everything is in great shape and most have original art and manuals. I'm planning on keeping the majority of the PS1 stuff except for Final Fantasy Tactics and Final Fantasy Chronicles as I already have good copies of them. On the PS2 stuff I will keep everything in the second to last picture except DMC3. And on the PS3 stuff, I am selling/trading in all of it except the Final Fantasy games. I should get my money back + more and keep the stuff I want to have in my collection  :bouncy:

Got a decent deal today

 

Logitech G700 mouse- $20

Logitech G35 headset-$25

 

A little disappointed because I didn't realize till after I bought the G35 that it doesn't do full surround on Macs -_________-

 

I wonder if I could somehow plug it into my creative sound blaster I use for my Macbook and PS3....

 

If not I'll just sell it on eBat

I think there used to be a Gamestop finds thread, but it got trolled and laughed out of existence.

Anyone know anything about plush toys?
I bought a couple of games, banjo kazooie and animal crossing (gc) from a lady for $15 last week and she gave my son a stuffed banjo kazooie with it. Was trying to figure out if its worth anything, I've googled but can't find the one that looks like what we have. Banjo has a thumbs up pose on this plushie. Thought I'd check before I let my 6 yr old have it, he's kind of rough with stuffed animals.

Bought a Hori Real Arcade Pro 3 for $60. It was used quite a bit, but a Lysol wipe and a few paper towels made it good as new. Having some fun with it and I hope to upgrade it to a PS360+ one day.

 

I could've gotten a Street Fighter X Tekken stick for $40, but it was quite far away from where I live AND it was missing the backplate.  It would've been good for stock parts, but in the end I decided against it.

Here are my latest online finds:

 

9382448224_270a283cf0.jpg
 
NES Lot w/6 games, Game Genie - $40  - A bit more than I would usually spend, but both consoles work, and all the hookups were included. I really only wanted the lot for the Star Trek game, but the other items should ensure a small profit once I clean 'em up. 
 

9382448488_d6c7b6a2ce.jpg
 
NES w/2 games, plus Soul Calibur III - FREE - Noticed someone posted about cleaning out a house, and threw them a note about looking for video games. After a couple of messages back and forth, they dropped these items off at my work. Just wanted them out of the house. Score.

I haven't bothered posting too much on here recently, but here are a few things I've gotten recently.

 

For $70

SNES and NES w/ bunch of games

Some of the highlights were Paperboy NES, Ninja Gaiden 2, Castlevania, SMB3, SMB2, Mega Man Soccer, Mario All-Stars/Mario World, Tetris/Dr. Mario, Tiny Toons, and a few more

 

For $10

Some NES games including Mario 3, Rad Racer, Karnov, Dracula's Curse, Dragon Warrior, and a few more commons

 

Guy then wanted to know if I wanted like 15 Xbox games. I wasn't really feeling it in general and he was just how about just like $5 for them, so I said okay

Games included Fable, Outrun 2, X-men Legends, Enter the Matrix, and a bunch more of common stuff

 

For $65

A bunch of sealed action figures. Including Kiss, Beavis & Butthead, Movie Monsters, and specifically 2 Zelda Ocarina of Time sets. I was planning on keeping the Zelda ones - but if I do sell them I think I'd be able to get like $140 for them

 

$35

Gamecube games - Pikmin 2, Monkey Ball, Sonic Adventure, Sonic Adventure 2, Shadow the Hedgehog, Starfox and a few more.

 

 

 

I would've had a bunch more pick ups but people have flaked out on me. Oh well.

Well, I almost scored Suikoden 1 & 2, Ogre Battle, and Tactics Ogre PS1 for $160.

Then another buyer offered him $200, so I offered him the same and peace of mind that I would put it in my collection. He told me he would sell it to me. Then, as I expected, the other buyer offered him $210. I gave up. Kind of frustrating really.

I understand him wanting to take more but telling me he will sell it to me and then going back on it kind of sucks. Anyway, there's always next time! Rant over lol.
