I regret selling my Luigi's Mansion for $12 a few years back.

Today I found a PS3 official controller for $4 charging it now, so far it works, can't wait to see if it holds a charge.

If it doesn't hold a charge, you can replace the battery. The controller is kinda tricky to get back together.
If its free, its for me!!

So far so good on holding a charge, I used it last night to play for 2 hours and the power level looks good still, chalk that up as a score.

Saw a platinum wavebird today but you can guess how this ends - no sign of the wireless receiver. LE SIGH, as they say on the internet.

Never heard of Geom Cube, but couldn't pass on a longbox.

I picked up a few empty NES shells for about 0.80 cents each, and my favorite find of the week was the copy of Tail Concerto that I pulled yesterday for about $1.09 with taxes. Its missing the manual, but I'm just glad to have a copy of it again since the last time I owned this was around when it was originally released lol.

Picked up Digimon World 3 for 2.99, rock Band wireless guitar brand new for 10, and the complete manga of the prince of tennis minus 3 of them for 80. Not the greatest score on that last one but I couldn't pass it up.

So I hit up my new favorite Salvation Army today and picked these up for less than 10 buck for the lot: Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego? CIB, Aladdin, Micky Mania w/ manual, and Super Mario World w/ manual. Not too bad for the price which was not a given as they were marked up for more. But the woman working the counter gave me a good, unofficial price on em. :D

Forgive me if it's not game related but I picked up Stephen Kings Dark Tower 4 1st Edition for .25. That thing is worth 100. And I am such a huge king fan lol.

Nothing in the gaming section of my local Salvation Army, but I did get a brown 30GB Zune complete and in new condition (minus the outer box) last week for the bargain basement price of $8. I tried to haggle to get the price lower because it wasn't turning on. I was hoping it was because the battery was low. No luck getting the price lowered any more since the lady working thought it was a cell phone. Got it home and low and behold...the darn thing worked after a charge! Still had some music on it. Not sure what I'm going to do with it yet. If anything I can use it for the gym since it has AM/FM radio on it as well. As to why an Ipod can't do that I have no clue.

It's the last NASCAR game made by Sierra for pc. It is customizable more than the newer versions. There is still a large online community.

If you buy it to flip make sure it has a cd key.

Visited 1 Goodwill today.

Pickings were slim. Barely any Videogames, other than some PS1 Games with no prices.

But I did see some Consoles. 1 Boxed Xbox with barely any of the wires tagged for 49.99. 1 Xbox with no Wires for 14.99. 1 Playstation 1 for 14.99. And a beat up Nintendo 64 with no wires with an opened Expansion Slot (probably had the Expansion Pack but someone stole it.) for 14.99. Saw another sticker that was probably from a Garage Sale ($100! WHAT. :lol:)
