I'd probably just walk at that point.  $60 is on the high end of what I'd consider even with Pikmin included.

Thanks, I offered $70 and denied, so I'm just gonna walk on this one. I've been hoping to find Pikmin 2 at a good price. Maybe next time lol.

An ad posted with 2 xbox 360's (old style whites), 1 120gb hd, an HDdvd player, and a wifi connector listed for $120 for everything.  Note: No controllers to cables for those consoles.  But said willing to split it up.

 

I called and asked only about the wifi adapter. He said $15.

 

Met him today and bought it for $13. 

 

It works and was a good price.

Got all of this for $180. The 3dsxl was the one that came with Mario Kart 7 pre installed, if I do a factory reset will it delete the game?Either way I'll make my money back with just that, and everything else is mine.

No it wont delete the game forever. You may have to download it from the market place again. Also you can transfer that game to another 3ds if you didnt want the blue one.

The NES games alone are probably worth $80 so not bad.

Anybody who lives in Long Island should be mildly pleased with this Wii Bundle. http://newyork.craig...4119478915.html I'd jump on it, especially since it comes with two wavebirds.

My PS3 that I bought on ebay for $110(including shipping) came in the mail today. The listings didn't say it was a slim(it was obvious that it was one through the pics) and it didn't say what was included or the hard drive size. It included the controller, charger cable(for the controller), and power cable. After testing, I was happy to find out that it was a 320gb.

Wii Play

Wii Sports

2x Wii Mote with charging station

I've been to the same guys place three times recently who has been posting up action figures and statues. First I got some He-Man statues, then a few He-Man figures and finally on Friday I picked up a big lot of Simpsons figures. A few are playsets still in the box.

 

Right now I have the three little He-Man statues up and about 8 of the Simpsons figures up.

 

 

 

Also I can't remember if I posted it or not, but I picked up a new Occulus Rift a few weeks ago. Still haven't got a chance to even use it :/

And his Saturn collection grew 3 sizes that day... Paid $50 for everything and a few more games that have already gone to a local shop for ~$20. Was going to just buy the Saturn stuff, but I saw some Sega CD games poking out in the corner of the pic, and she agreed to throw it in with whatever other game stuff she had lying around, which included controllers and a CDX power supply. She saved my number in case she finds anything else, especially the CDX, but I'm not holding my breath. Nobody ever calls me back :<

Traded a DSi I bought for $15 for this N64 lot. Unfortunately everything except Zelda is in crappy shape. Should be able to make a good profit though.

Very nice, I still need Fighter's Destiny, had some fun with that one back in the day. Its one of those ones that's dirt cheap so I don't buy it online, except it isn't THAT common so I rarely see it in stores. Hoping to find it in a lot like that one at some point...

That's sad.   Really sad.

 

They have that little money that they can't afford gas or diapers for their child but still bought a game system.

 

Surely they didn't get THAT broke THAT quickly.

A lot of people don't think. I have friends who are constantly selling things to make rent. If they'd just spend responsibly for a few months, they could put some money in the bank and then not have to sell things for this sort of thing but instead they spend $60.00 on these games and then sell them 3 days later for $15.00 so they can get some cash. Its crazy.

 

I've been in a situation before where unexpected things came up, it happens, but for normal expenses like food and rent that just shouldn't happen.

Yeah that's what I'm talking about.

 

If you don't have the money to cover your most basic necessities of life (food/water, shelter, transportation) you don't need to be buying a single thing that doesn't fall into those above categories.

 

I get things happen like your car breaks down or whatever and you get in a bind.  It would suck but sometimes sacrifices must be made.  But selling all that for $150?  No way.  They could've asked for at least $200 and I don't think anyone would be insulted.

Just talked down a guy for a red standard 3DS and Pokemon X in an SD card from $180 to $130.

Do you guys think it's a decent enough deal? I think I  could have knocked another $10 off.

Not exactly Craigslist, but I had quite the score from the local Facebook Swip-Swap group. This lot was posted for $120 but I got it for $110. It was awesome as it was, but when I met him and he gave me the boxes for two of the action sets I almost flipped, since they weren't pictured in the lot. At any rate, 2 of the NES work and 2 are faulty, so I'll be trying my hand at replacing the 72 pin connectors, and there's a lot of missing cords, most notably 3 of the NES power adapters, but one boxed system could pay for everything here, so I'm not complaining.

Replied to NES ad that listed four working games (Tetris, Double Dragon, Othello, and Tetris), and a handful of non-working games. Bought everything sign unseen for ten dollars, thinking I might get lucky with the unlisted, non-working games. Think I did pretty well.

Bonus: All of the games worked perfectly fine - my guess is that they were trying them on a pooched NES.

BIG score tonight! I got a Halo 4 edition Xbox 360 with both controllers, controller stand, headset, Halo 4, Black Ops 2, GTA V, Mass Effect 3, Forza 4 Essentials, and Battlefield 3. 320GB is still in the system.

 

Total- $150

 

An older kid sold it to me because he was getting a PS4.

 

Now I can't decide if I want to keep this or my Star Wars Xbox I already have...

Picked up this small Gamecube lot for $15.

 

cag043_zps86961b2e.jpg

 

The system is missing the AV cables. Mario is missing the instruction book and looks a little scratched, but I already own it.

 

Custom Robo is going in the collection.  I'll probably also keep the memory card.

All for $80; first time buying something off Craigslist. Not the 'best' deal but I'm very happy with it as I don't own any of the Zelda games :D
