Game at bottom are day of Reckoning 1 & 2. All that was originally $60. I was quite surprised I was able to score this lot since several people in my area are advertising on CL that they want to buy Gamecube games specifically. What is with this sudden surge in Gamecube popularity?



That's a good question. A lot of games have jacked up prices all of the sudden. I guess it's cause gamestop clearanced them and there aren't other chains that are still selling them.

Just got my first Genesis bundle. Paid $40 for it all. Havent tested it yet, but the guy said it all worked last night.

Looks like a genesis model 2 to me. Also came with a genesis 32x

Spoiler


6 Controllers, looks like only 2 name brand. Those ones with a bunch of buttons I think are offbrand and worth nothing right?

How do you guys think I did? What about value on this? I havent really dealt with genesis stuff before. Was happy to get the system though


that's about at the limit what someone should get for that.

You're going to need an extra cable and power adapter for the 32X. And a lot of 32x units have shitty lifespans unfortunately. Not that there's really much of anything worth playing on it.

Personally I feel like the only genesis units that are worth buying anymore are the high definition graphics model 1 units, because they have really good sound. The sound quality on the later models is pretty bad. Video quality is bad all around unless you get in and add an S-Video mod. It's a shame that the system didn't support it out of the box like the snes did.

This is a good video showing the basic differences, but as you get into different version motherboards it gets more complicated. The "High Definition Graphics" model is the clearest one to see without opening it up with the best sound quality. The difference is quite dramatic, to me anyway.

Excellent find, some of the games there are worth quite a bit. Super jealous of the complete Eartworm Jim and Toejam and Earl 2. Also, does Comix Zone (one of my favorite games ever) have a music CD in the back of the case somewhere?

Is this not a good deal? It seems awesome 4 games for 35$


Selling a few of my games cheaper then GameStop, halo 4 of
course comes with the regular disc and the needed disc to
download the multiplayer, all for 25$ (37$ used at GameStop)
fallout 3 comes with the DLC disc which can be used over and
over I.e you can share with your friends so they can enjoy
all the dlc if they don't have it, also comes with the game
disk 10$. Oblivion IV comes with dlc disc and standard disc
(same rules apply like with the fallout3disks) 10$.


Now for deals if you want both fallout and oblivion and all
the dlc I'll give you them both for 15$


If you want all 3 games here's where the fun begins 35$ for
all the games. And I'll give you BioShock 2 for free, all
these games come in like new so email me!

Had a pretty good score last night that I didn't post due to all the craziness going on. I got two DS Lites, New Super Mario Bros., Tomb Raider Underworld and Mario Kart DS, but only one charger and one stylus. But I only paid $30 for all of it.

If you ever want to get rid of it let me know. I finally picked up a complete Comix Zone earlier this week ($5!) after looking for one for some time, but unfortunately no CD :<

Also, you can answer a question for me! Did it come in a CD sleeve or did it have a legit jewel case?

And so I stop cluttering the thread with non-cragslist type things:

$20 for everything. Also had an old fat grey gameboy but it didn't work, half the screen was dead.

After some careful trading I got this with Playstation All-Stars and a 4 gb card for $125. Some wear to the back but the screen looks perfect. I'd rather get a handheld used anyway, that way it's pre-damaged and I don't have to worry too much about getting it messed up :P

I would go for it, and if you don't feel like keeping it, you could always sell it on ebay for over 200 bucks easy

Picked up another SNES (that's 4 now) and some games. So, this deal wasn't through craigslist, but it was by similar means. A friend let me know about a local woman selling the bundle on facebook. I called, she wanted $100, tried to get it for $50, but ended up buying it for $70. Included:

- SNES Console (no yellowing) w/ Hookups & 2 Official Controllers
- 14 games : Donkey Kong Country (X2), Aladdin, Super Mario Kart, Super Mario World (X2), Super Mario All-Stars, Donkey Kong Country 2, Chessmaster, Aero The Acrobat, Star Fox, Ms. Pac Man, Super Wrestlemania and Adventures of Yogi Bear

All of the games were in good shape, some might need a little cleaning but that's all. Nothing spectacular game wise, but thought it was a fairly good deal.

Picked up Forza 4 2 disc edition and Operation Flashpoint Dragon Rising for $15 bucks tonight on the way home from work. Forza 4 is mint, OF is w/o a manual but pretty good otherwise. Dood was telling me he has other games (couldn't find his ads for them) and is going to sell me Left 4 Dead 2 on friday for 15 bucks.

Not bad I say!

Another decent pick-up today, at least I think so. Got the following from a guy about 40 minutes away for $70. His original price was $150, but I told him his price was a little high so he came down.

- Platinum Nintendo Gamecube w/ hookups, controller, microphone & 2 memory cards
- Gameboy Player w/ Start-up Disc
- 5 Games, all complete: Luigi's Mansion, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Shadow The Hedgehog, Sonic Adventure 2: Battle & Mario Party 4

Like I said, not a homerun but still a very good deal I thought.

Wow, me personally I think that's a great deal! Seeing as how you can easily sell the GC with 1 controller and hook-ups for $30 easily. That's if you already had the system, but those games are great. Luigi's Mansion & Supef Smash Bros easily are $50-60 combined. Then Mario Party 4 is the best one out on GC IMO. I personally think you got a pretty sweet deal.

Anyways, I got myself an amazing pickup! The price I paid was $120 for a Fire Emblem Awakening 3DS Bundle! The best thing was that the AR cards were unopened, the Club Nintendo system registration was unused so I got 120 coins, and then the guy even threw in Pokemon for the Nintendo DS! All in all I'm very excited to finally be a 3DS owner.

Some guy had an X'Eye up for $120 with no controllers/hook ups, but with the Compton's Encyclopedia disc...I passed but I was very tempted.

Lol, I know I was pretty shocked. I thought for sure I was either getting a hate filled response or nothing at all. But the kid just said, yeah I looked around after I posted it and saw I listed it pretty high, so yeah ill take $70. Then I thought he'll probably leave me hanging at our meeting place, kind of as an f u for being cheap lol.

If you really want it, I say go for it. They did mess up the original box art though and replaced it with a homemade sticker.

Picked up a basically brand new (was manufactured 3 months ago...kid bought it but wound up not using it) 250gb Xbox 360 slim for 120. Came with all of the cables and a controller. Console was literally mint. Never owned a 360 before, so I'm pretty stoked to get into the Xbox library.

Made another pretty good deal yesterday. Here's the backstory. Was planning on going to the flea market in Middleburg, PA yesterday morning. Got up around 7 and decided to check craigslist. Lo and behold, there was a guy in Middleburg selling a N64 & SNES bundle. It looked pretty good, so I emailed him with an offer of $200 for everything. I didn't think I'd get it that cheap, but just wanted to start communication basically. Figured if there's nothing at this flea market, might as well make the trip worthwhile at least. He emailed me back, said a woman offered $200 for just the SNES stuff. So I said, I'm in Middleburg right now let's do $260 for everything, you don't have to travel or anything would you do that? He said $300, we haggled and eventually ended up at $275. Then he called me and said he also has Super Smash Bros. that he forgot to list and he'd throw it in for $285 total. I agreed to the deal. So, here's what I got:

Spoiler


So do you guys think I got a good deal? I think I did, but for some reason after almost every deal I always feel like I might've overpaid lol. BTW, the flea market sucked. Hardly any vendors, mostly amish people with food. Only thing I picked up was Dig Dug II on NES for $1, but I won't bother posting that in the Flea Market Thread.

Also, awesome pick-up kermit036! That's a great lot, I would've jumped on that one as well. Good job.
