Buying stuff pleases hungry, hungry, hippo.

Happy Valentine's Day for some, and for the rest, a nice quiet meal for one.

Technically, Trinity Universe is a Jan pick up since I bought it on Friday. Yakuza 3 was a Goozex pickup.

Personally I've been skeptical about a lot of the stories people have been telling in the WHD thread, about their PS3 coming as shit.

Mine was brand new, just no seal.

I can't imagine anyone actually getting a useless brick.

People are getting lazy with replying what people are doing in this thread instead of posting what they bought.


It makes me sad.

Been wanting one of these for over a year now. Was tempted to order one from GameBaz when they were around $480, but they've since jacked up the price to $1,870. This one only set me back $250, so it's a good thing I was "patient." It is one beautiful piece of hardware.

Imz00, just out of curiosity, what games or kinds of games do you play? I always see your collectible stuff, but wonder about what you get to play, if anything.

edit: there's a mint black labeled FFVIII in a local resale shop going for $10, is that worth grabbing?

You can flip that for AT LEAST 3x that. Easily worth it.

My goodies from the Pokemon Black and White tour. And before you accuse me of being a cow for wearing XL, the shirts are fit for children/teens so you have to scale up.

Wait, really? You sure? FFVIII usually goes for $20 or under if you look. Hell, a year ago I got a mint BL copy off eBay for around $10 shipped... So... It's worth it to buy it for yourself, but if you're looking to flip it, you won't make too much.
