FS / FT: Boxed CIB Virtual Boy Games (Red Alarm, Teleroboxer, Golf, Galactic Pinball, P...

EDIT: I posted the individual pics of the contents, per the requests.  I will only be taking offers until mid-next week, then I will make a decision, thanks everyone for their views and PMs!

 

Hey CAGs,

 

Just recently posted these in the thrift store thread, figure I'd start a trade thread for these guys (before I resort to eBay).  I'd much rather them go to a CAG collector in one shot, and I won't ask for much to buy over what I paid (which was $40 for the lot).

 

All of them are CIB and in excellent shape, the only one that shows some damage to the box is Galactic Pinball (slightly crushed on the corners, very minor).  All boxes also have dents and scratches, not very noticeable though.

 

I'm also willing to trade for individual titles, but I'm only really interested in Gamecube / GBA / Wii / PS2 games at the moment.  Just PM me with offers if interested, thanks for looking!

Question on PS3 250 GB 2012 Black Friday Bundle

31 January 2014 - 06:36 PM

Hey CAGs,

 

I'm pretty much a novice when it comes to PS3 console bundles, though I've been meaning to pick one up someday to catch up on the exclusives (and as a replacement Blu-ray player).  I just saw at one of my local stores the PS3 250GB 2012 Black Friday Bundle for $179.99 which piqued my interest.  I know it's a good deal, so no need to go there, but I had few questions:

 

1) Do the games (inFAMOUS Collection and Uncharted Dual Pack) come in physical disc form with their cases?  Are they sealed in that scenario?  Or are they just in the form of digital copies?  The ability to sell those off and keep the console is one of my main sticking points (though I may keep Uncharted).

 

2) In comparison to other PS3 models out there (I think this is the super slim version), how does it stack up? Just debating if it would be worth it to seek out an older model that has better reliability / quality components, or if by this iteration it's a non-issue.  I don't care about BC, already have my PS2 and a back up for that.

 

3) Any issues in using this as my main Blu-ray player?  It wouldn't get a ton of use, but I was burnt (twice actually) on the PS2 by using it as my main DVD player (thankfully I had extended warranties then).  My current Blu-ray is running fine, but I may use that one as an alternate player in another room.

 

Oh, I also have no interest in picking up a PS4, in case people were going to suggest that route.  Thanks in advance to all who answer!


2014 Thrift Store Thread - Post your finds here!

03 January 2014 - 05:26 PM

I guess I'll start this thread for the year after all, post whatever you find at your local thrift stores (Goodwill, Salvation Army, Savers, and the like).  Video game related or not, if it's a good deal, go ahead and share it with the CAG community.

 

I might go through the old 2013 thread sometime and catalog the best scores and update this post just for fun, we'll see who "won" at thrifting for that year.

 

Off the top of my head, I remember a boxed Sega CDX for around $40, a complete copy of Suikoden II for $3, and a few awesome PS1 and SNES lots.  Of course let's not forget about the Stadium Events game as well (that find is in a class of itself), though I don't think that was someone on CAG.  I'll update the right information when I find it.

 

Top Finds from the 2013 Thread (in no particular order):

** If I'm missing a great find, just let me know, though I'll update this when I have time **

 

 

As for 2014, yesterday I stopped by a local church operated thrift store, which doesn't get much rotation, but the prices are yard sale types.  Picked up a copy of Blokus that I've always wanted to give a shot for a buck.

Arachnophobia Blu-Ray for $7.96 with Free In-Store Pick up @ Walmart

26 September 2013 - 09:05 PM

Arachnophobia Blu-Ray $7.96

 

Arachnophobia DVD $6.00

 

I don't normally post in the movie section, but just posting since this price just dropped within the past week (bought it for myself for $11 recently at Fry's).  It's more of a comedy than a thriller, John Goodman and Jeff Daniels are great in this.

 

Posted the DVD price as well, though this is somewhat comparable to what else is out there.  Next cheapest for the Blu-Ray is Amazon at around $11ish.
