Germantown Walmart has "Cobalt Blue" and "Metalic Pink" DS systems for $65. I'm sure they'll go quick.

I'm not a overly active contributor to CAG but I do lurk. Anyway, because of an upcoming move I've decided to sell off a great deal of my video game collection. It consists of PS3, PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii/GC games. So far I've posted the PS3 and PS2 games:

http://washingtondc..../917240720.html

http://washingtondc..../917259843.html

I'll be posting the 360 and Wii stuff later today.

If you are interested please contact me and I'm sure we can work out a fair price. Make sure you mention CAG. I'm thinking that contacting me via Craigslist is probably the best option since I don't check these boards that often.

Dude, your 360 inventory may have cost you $700 new, but there is no way they are worth even a quarter of that. Good luck.

You may be totally correct there. I based my figures on averages.

Besides that, I'm asking for "Best Offer" not assigning prices to anything. By quoting values I hoped to fend off people who were trying to lowball me. Offering $75 for the entire collection is in no way a fair offer but that's sometimes the type of offer you'll get on Craigslist.

Glancing at your 360 list, most of those have recently been available for $10-20 new. Some were even less because of clearance. $75 is in the ballpark because they are used and because several will be duplicative of the buyer's collection if sold as a group.

You could always do better though. Stuff is always worth whatever someone will pay, and not everyone values stuff like I do. Good luck.

well this thread has all but died. lol Just a heads up to all. Trying to figure out if I'll be able to put together another meet for next month. May have to put it on hold as I am house hunting right now and need to focus on that.

But if something isn't put together for next month, I'll def work out the next meet for late Feb/early March.

I haven't been here (this thread) for some time. Like to help organize another meetup in Rockville (Dave & Busters). Anyone interested? Maybe sometime in late January/early February. I miss them, they were very cool.

How does everyone feel about Saturday, February 7th @ D&B White Flint at 3:00pm for the next meet? This is the weekend after the Superbowl, so hopefully it would be available for most people.

Looking forward to seeing faces old and new!

I will either be working midnight shift that weekend or at NY Comic-con. I am free any saturday after that tho. I know the following saturday is Valentine's day and a single guy like me is free, but I'm sure everyone else is not. So, I'm down for the 21st or 28th as my best dates

With a couple replies stating that the 7th would be no good, how does the 21st sound to everyone? Is there anyone that could do the 7th, but not the 21st? We'll have to decide on a date regardless, but I'd like to exclude as few people as possible.

Doesn't Delaware have no taxes. That would make the decision easier for me, but then there is the commute.

I'm from the metro area, and that DB is pretty close to me.

But out of cheer ignorance, can anyone explain to me how this works (maybe its simpler than I think). Does everyone already know each other beforehand? Do you HAVE to trade games?

Definitely can attend on the 21st. Also the 7th if changed again. (14 is busy for obvious reasons)

Now playing: Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare (XB1), Dark Souls (PC), Starcraft 2 (PC), Infamous: Second Son (PS4), Dead Rising 3 (XB1), Rouge Legacy (PSV).

The meetups go something like this: people show up, shoot the S, have some drinks/food, talk games/deals/tv/movies/life, trickle out to our cars and trade/freeze/roast, run back inside, hang out some more, possibly play some at the D&B arcade, and head off to points unknown.

There are a number of "regulars," but there are new people at every meetup. All are friendly; the more the merrier. For all the virtual killing we do, I find that we're a pretty likable bunch.

We're usually at the long table near the inside mall-facing entrance to D&B, or at the small tables near the bar, or crow-hunching near the long table. It is a motley crew, but we tend to be easy to find. A gaming T-shirt is not uncommon, and the Goozex gents are easy to pick out from their logo-ed apparel if they are present. Feel free to look back around post 793 in this thread for pictures of the regulars. Yeesh, I was pretty bedraggled in those.

Trading is not required, so feel free to come and enjoy the company.

Post #1425 updated! Also, jmiller80's description is spot on. I went through the old posts and discovered that this will be both the 7th meetup, and 3 days shy of the 2nd anniversary of the 1st ever DC Meetup. And everyone should thank thebob101, because without him getting the ball rolling back then, these meets may never have happened!

*EDIT ONE MORE TIME* Made this banner for Pwned.com's Home Page (The Event will be featured there. Should be up today or tomorrow). Here it is.

Posted this on both the Goozex Forums http://goozex.com/co...ms/t/33616.aspx and the Pwned.com Forums http://pwned.com/message/41579/

Don't like to plug Pwned.com too much besides my signature, but they have a great Calendar system that would be nice to track everyone who is going much easier. So for those with a Pwned.com account, or if people would like to sign up and create one, you can put yourself as attending by going to the Calendar Event Page for the meet up that I created to manage and to make it more visible for Pwned members who might be interested.

List updated again. Also, if anyone is interested in one of those $30 PS3 arcade sticks from Gamestop, there's one at my local store as of about 6pm tonight. I should be able to get it for someone going to the meetup if you tell me soon. My cost is your cost, or if you have something I want in trade that would be cool too. Here's a link about the deal:
