You could of doubled your money on amazon


Your saying $80 for a disc only resurfaced copy? It looked like they were going for around $60-80 CIB and around 30-40 d.o.
I don't price things at top dollar prices anyway, I set reasonable prices so things sell (hopefully, lol) quick.

@ spamfree2 I tested it , and it loaded up fine and I played it for about 5 minutes with no problems. I fully disclosed that in my ad with no guarantees. I was surprised it sold that quick.

That's what it's listed at on Amazon but no telling how long it'll take to sell. Plus, Amazon's fees are higher...

I was able to snag a complete copy for $45 a few months back... crazy how it's going for $40 as disc only.

Gamecube games are very delicate to resurface anyway, but the terrible methods that gamestop uses usually kill the discs even worse.


It's not worth resurfacing games...I have a pikmin 2 and mario strikers to prove it. bwahhahaaha :cry:

I have a water pick for teeth cleaning and it does wonders removing that residue in the center of reurb discs. Just dont turn it up to 10! I did that once a really crusty 360 disc and it actually forced water half way into the data section. To remove the left over water use some toilet paper to suck it out via capillary action. Stuff a bunch in the hole and watch it suck out.

Yay. Looked online last night and saw that a store roughly two hours away had Mario Kart showing in stock. Talked my wife into a road trip, reserved it and just picked it up. Oddly, it was the *only* GameCube game they had. Disc only, but I'll just swap out one of my other copies with a double-disc case. Yay! Now, I only need one more...

For Smash Brothers Melee and Mario Golf namely. Guess 'all of those were sent to other stores' meant I should have asked for fkstick's Ebay account name.

Not to mention I'm now two for two on 'oh, we have the Gameboy player, but no disc'. Are you people that fucking stupid? Yet again Gamestop backs up my theory that they will take Madden 1978 with a bite taken out of it for some random trade in value.

Yeah, I called that one and pretty much every one in the Memphis area, most didn't have them at all. I nabbed the last of the decent stuff at the one by wolfchase the day the sale started.

I know this isn't useful to most folks, but if you're inclined to have multiple GameCube/Game Boy Players in your home, you can use a single Game Boy Player disc. Once it loads in one, you can pop it out and load it in the other(s). I've had four running at once while using a single disc. :D

I think I'm done, except I might pick up a few more cheap ones like 1080 Snowboarding and Godzilla. I got F-Zero and a working Custom Robo. I was going to pick up a few controllers, but I got a sweet Craigslist deal today.

Yup. Or, you can connect up to four GameCubes (via GameBoy Player) to a fifth GameCube (or Wii) playing a Connectivity title (like Four Swords Adventures).

Went out again today and did pretty damn good. Hit up 3 gamestops and finished the day pretty damn successful.

CIB:
Pokemon XD Gale of Darkness
Donkey Konga 2

Box/disc only:
Tony Hawk's Underground 2

Disc only:
Soul Calibur 2
Custom Robo
Baten Kaitos
Sonic Gems Collection

I'll have to coverproject the disc only games, but other than that I'm very happy with today's haul. I'll be going out again tomorrow. Gonna ride this sale for all it's worth.

Also, I should say: I'm not sure if I'm just lucky or what, but every single game I've gotten from this sale plays perfectly and I've tested them all in both the cube and wii. In fact, only one game looked iffy when I bought it (Custom Robo), it had the dirty spindle hole. It plays fine though. Everything else has ranges from good to perfect condition.

I hit up the Store at 800 N Kedzie today, as well as the one in Merrionette on West 115th (where I got Custom Robo, but they told me that was their last GC game and only had one controller and one memory card left). The first time I went out, I hit the store somewhat by the United Center but not really? I wish I could remember the street...if you're driving to the UC coming from 55 you have to turn left at one of the intersections before the UC and its down their in a small shopping plaza. The cube games were all in sleeves in a box behind the counter, I had to ask to see them. I'd give you a better idea but I just can't remember the name of that street. It's not a GS I usually ever go to, but it is a pretty nice one.

Those are protective stickers they paste on to both sides of the disc to hide cracks the refurb process causes around the spindle area at times. They do that a lot to PS2/Wii titles they refurb. My advice is never take it off if you plan on keeping the disc. It'll likely be an eye sore you don't want to see.
