That is the first I've ever seen of that. I've always referred to the PSX as the playstation that had the composite output. Had no idea THAT was a real thing.

Also after looking a bit, this seems like a Japan only release so that explains its scarcity.

On the note of odd PS1 systems, anyone here ever own / seen a Net Yaroze?  I remember reading about that in PSM years ago as the console programming revolution, but it never really caught on (obviously because it was a $750 PS1).

 

Anyways, here were my finds so far this week, $2 each.  If only it was MML2 and SoR3, but can't complain either way.  Playing these again brought back some serious nostalgia, as they were both some of my favorite games for their respective platforms.

I remember that PSN article, because it inspired me to paint my PS1 flat black, because it looked so much cooler than grey.

Nice pickup a little earlier today from the county thrift store. Picked up a guitar hero Aerosmith guitar and a guitar hero world guitar for $4.50. Both are for 360, wireless, and work just fine :-)

In the past week I've bought: 

 

-2 Nike ThermaFit Hoodies - brand new - $3.99 each.....retail for $70

 

-Pair of vintage Nike AirMaxes - decent condition - $3....going rate for them now is around $100+ on eBay.

 

Just gotta know what to look for.

Update from last post- Model 1 SNES= all cleaned up and fuse replaced. Model 2 SNES= DEAD, kept the shell just incase I find a beat up Model 2 in the future. 

 

Today- saw N64/PS2/SNES games........all sports crap. Digging through the bins I found a NES with controller for $10. Needs a cleaning, good thing I just got that Gamebit screwdriver from Amazon!

I found a PSX for .50. No cords or anything, but I already have a PSX, and just got this one for a spare. At the same time I picked up Guitar Hero 3, XBox 360 version, for another .50

Found Omega Boost complete for ps1 for 1.99 and Worms Armageddon disc only for .99. Already had Worms but was cheap enough to be worth it as trade bait.

Went for a drive and on the way back, spotted a thrift store.
We stopped in, I found a game guide for Zelda Twilight Princess (GameCube) - 50 cents
Hubby went poking around and found a box with a Playstation one, labeled as is, parts only along with all cables and and controller and a demo disk. $4.00. I just brought it home and played Gran Turismo. I got a $4 Playstation bundle!

Then hit my local goodwill, and found a Platinum GameCube with cables, gameboy player attachment, startup disk and link cable for $4.97.

Had a pretty good day thrift shopping today!

There's a small, small thrift store right across the street. I've been living here over a year and never peeked. Although, through the windows all I see are baggy and old clothes. Never went in. I love hearing success stories. But, I'm scared to go in. Should I?

I don't see what reason you could possibly have for not going in. If it sucks, you know to not go back. The place could secretly be full of murderers, but the same could be said for any other building.

The best part was after I looked at it, a reseller came in and got really excited then saw the price tag and lost her shit and started screaming at all the employees. Nothing is better than watching a reseller get a taste off their own medicine!

Puhlease, if I see Goodwill put a $30 sticker on one I pass. If someone else wants to pay that, go for it. But I wont! They didnt pay a penny for that!

Well to be fair, the people that shop at goodwill are generally very wealthy and can easily afford to pay 4 times the ebay price for a dirty nintendo with no games

Yikes, $250 for a dirty NES? That's crazy. LOL Is each accessory labeled $24.99 or $249.99?
I see part of the price tag on the NES Advantage.
Is that Goodwill in a not so great part of town?

I've noticed that the goodwill in a nice neighborhood that I go to all the time has really low prices, while the 2 further away and in the bad part of town have ridiculously high prices. Anyone else's goodwill have weird pricing differences?

Its $249.99 for all of it. There was a stack of common games but they were $6 each.

It was in like a middle class town but the inside of the store is extremely unorganized and dirty

Yeah, The one near my house (Relatively bad neighborhood) prices every game, No matter how old or crappy at $4.99,  Including a copy of Madden 2001 that has been sitting there since the store opened in April, And if it's on a cartridge, They put it in the display case and put a $10 price sticker on it.

 

However, The one out by the local mall and subdivision prices every game at $1.99 and doesn't check the values at all, I've found Black Label FFVII's and NASCAR Racing 2003 for $1.99 each there on multiple occasions.

My closest goodwill prices their games at $4.99 mostly though a few times I have found higher prices on old cart games. I once saw a boxed complete NES with 9 boxed games (mostly commons best game there was super mario bros 2 boxed) some older guy actually paid 149.99 for it. I needed a spare N64 system and I found a normal one with two controllers (a broken red joypad and a normal grey controller) av/ac cables thought the console itself was dirty I got it for $14.99 I have cleaned it up and use it to game on while my clear Grey N64 sits in showcase mode.

After another dry spell, I had a pretty decent haul today.  I wasn't even planning on going, since we are trying to cut back on spending, but I'm glad I stopped in.

 

The big winner for tonight was a box that happened to come out from the back shortly after we got up there: A box of Genesis stuff. I didn't see it at first, and some younger guys were eyeing it up for I got to it.  As soon as I saw a few of the games and one of the guys with his phone out, I was about to start kicking myself.  Then by some stroke of luck, he put everything back into the box and walked away.  Without hesitation, I swept in and snatched it up.  Here's what it had in it, for $30 (actually $24 after 20% discount):

 

DSCN1583_zps8f82f307.jpg

 

The contents:

 

One Genesis 1 console with RF and AC adapter.

One extra AC adapter

Five controllers, some third party, some not.

One controller extension

One sealed PS1 video cord (???)

 

Games (Cart only):

Sonic 3

Pigskin Footbrawl

Joe Montana Football

Road Rash 2 (small cart)

Columns

 

Games (CIB):

I'll post the rest of my pick-ups tomorrow.

The same thing happened with my gamecube find last weekend, a guy was looking at it and then wandered off to look on his phone. I grabbed it when he walked off. Then he sort of followed me around the store which was creepy as hell, guess he was hoping I'd set it down.

Goodwill rules of shopping, you want something, you hold onto it. If I want to look something up, I will hold onto said item and look it up.
It's not even safe in your cart. One time I was picking out books for my kids and some lady started rifling through my cart, lmao.

Nah, it was the North Huntingdon Goodwill.  I don't like the one in Robinson; they always seem to overprice.  Aside from that one lucky bastard that got the dirt cheap iPad the weekend they opened.

 

Anyways, some of the other stuff I picked up (prices before the 20% discount):

 

Pokemon the First Movie DVD - $1

Ted Blu/DVD (No UV code) - $2

Gilmore Girls Seasons 1-7 (the fiance wanted this one- $10 for all

1996 Hasbro Star Wars Storm Trooper black blaster - $1

Spyro :ps1: complete - $1

6" Koopa Troopa plush - $.50

Talking Sid the Science Kid plush - $.50 (I'm torn on this because my kids love the show, but it's going for $40+ on Amazon right now)
