I am not selling an Xbox 360, I am selling an Xbox 360 HD DVD Player, along with its software disc, usb connector, and ac outlet. Also if you buy my HD DVD Player I will give you 7 HD DVDs, The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremecy, The Bourne Ultimatum, Disturibia, V for Vendetta, Dante's Peak, I am Legend.

The price for everything is $225. If you can help me out it would be greatly appreciated because I need money for a family emergency.

If you are interested please text me at 714-293-3640


I decided to email this guy:

From: Chase Danker (chasedanker777@hotmail.com)
Sent: Mon 7/13/09 2:29 PM
To: sale-qgff7-1267800529@craigslist.org
Or I could go buy it from Fry's for $40.


Response from him:

Sorry matt, it doesn't matter what you paid for them. HD-DVD was discontinued. Everybody takes a hit at one point when they re-sell.

Nice, Kuros. He seems pretty adamant about getting what he wants for it. I hope he likes a thick layer of dust with his HD-DVD player.

LOL Kuros, nicely done. My favorite:

"you know what then dont Fuckin deal with me then and stop wasting my time. Obviously you dont know how to read where it said Im trying to get money for a family emergency. Regardless of what frys sells them for I still paid a lot of money for them. So I am not going to sell them unless I get what I want for them. Period. Do not email me again."

No one gives a shit about your family emergency, except if they can use that fact and your desperation for cash to really rake you over the coals. If anything, the guy should be grateful to get anything at all for his defunct media player and discs. Fry's prices on HD-DVDs and the XBox 360 player are HIGH if anything, LOL!

Point #2, then you're not going to sell them, ever. Unless maybe every single other XBox 360 HD-DVD attachment spontaneously combusts, leaving yours the only system left on earth, working or otherwise, then you ain't getting jack shit for it.


Anyway that said, if the following is true, what a magnificent dumbass this guy is:

Am selling the classic FFVII game that I bought back in 2000 for $200! I'm moving and am selling all my Playstation games to make money to move. It's in excellent condition and still works. Please, serious inquiries only. Post will remain up until sold.

I don't think I'd pay $50 for a broken PS3 (maybe I would, maybe I wouldn't...it would depend on whether it was BC, larger HD and features, etc.) let alone a broken PS2!!! Seriously, how much would you pay for this PS2? $5? $10 tops? Even that would be hard to swallow. $50 firm, YEAH RIGHT!!!

I have a broken PS2 for sale $50 firm. The system works but overheats and shuts off after about 10 mins of play. The red power light blinks on and off when this happens. A box fell on the corner of the system that caused this.

Includes power cable and A/V cable as well.

System model - SCPH-75001

If your interested or know of a way to fix it please let me know. I will answer any questions you have. All sales are final as noted this system is broken.

Thanks!!!

i have a wii for sale for $350 or trade. i have a 2 yr warranty on it. i bought it in feb.of 2009 its only been played a few times i bought a ps3 and i like it better thats why im getting rid of it but im interested in another ps3,things that go bang,hunting stuff,tools,ect thanks for looking to view my other items go to ********@yahoo.com


First off, 350 for some used wii, wiiplay, and some other shitty game. That can all be bought new for that price with a warranty

Second, that's an email address and as such impossible to view other items by going to an email address

He's also selling a Rey Mysterio mask for $100. Maybe he should try to combine the items.

So since I paid $160 for my Sega 32X, I should still be able to ask for close to that amount? I guess he's never heard of "sunk cost" or "depreciation" before. I wonder if he's still driving the very first car he bought because he can't sell it for the same price he bought it for.

There is nothing really wrong with that one. That's not a horrible price, $25 for the N64 with 2 controllers and $5 for each game is probably what he figures. It probably is worth closer to $50, but hey, it's probably someone that doesn't know game values, and is just going off an honest estimate. There is much worse in this part of the country.

Well all together the games aren't even worth $7, let alone $7 each. Though I would pay $7 for the system.

Perhaps not to that extreme, however we have posted incidents where games that are advertised on sale, clearanced etc. have popped up in multiple quantities for much more than the selling price. I.e. games from the $9.99 Best Buy sale, showing up the day the sale starts or shortly thereafter, sealed and seller has multiples, and is asking $30-45 each for them.

We all get what you are saying, and yes, most of the 'deals' posted in this topic are far more blatantly ridiculous than others. You also have to remember that we're CAGs, so our optimum price for an item is pennies on the dollar if not free.

But you also have to remember this is craigslist, the yard sale/flea market/shady street corner black market of the web - so no one should see a used copy of a game for sale, asking equal to or even more than what you can get it for, and a new copy at that, at virtually any store, and see that as acceptable or fairly priced. So yes, if someone posts an ad for a game that I can easily get for the same price he is asking used at any and every Gamestop, or even worse, is asking for his used copy the same (or even higher) price that a new copy goes for, then I see no problem with that ad getting posted in this topic. Though I prefer to post the really outlandish 'deals' personally, as if I posted stuff like that I could fill this topic with ads posted for only an hour in LA.

EDIT: On a side note, I can't stand fuckers that list ads linking to their ebay auctions. Keep it on eBay, fucknuts!

I always price stuff to sell and eventually someone takes it off my hands. Generally the prices should be lower because it's an as-is deal with no refunds or recourse.

If I wanted to pay retail for an item I would buy it brand new in the package at a store with a return policy.

Modded 360 with 19 games+accessories - $350400 (Frederick, Maryland)

Reply to: sale-4u7f2-1266629007@craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?]
Date: 2009-07-12, 7:34PM EDT



I'm looking to sell -MY- Xbox 360, It comes with the following games and accessories.

All games are Stealth Burned and work on live..All accessories work and look brand new.

1- 60GB 360 harddrive
1- Xbox 360 Wireless Controller.
1- HDMI Cable(HDMI Port on the 360)
1- AV/Component cable.
1- Power adapter for the xbox 360.
1- Halo 3(Game)
1- Call of Duty: World at War(Game)
1- Prototype(Game)
1- Fuel(Game)
1- Tiger Woods 2010 PGA World Tour(Game)
1- Kung Fu Panda(Game)
1- Battlefield Bad Company(Game)
1- Fallout 3(Game)-No expansion
1- Deadrising
1- Red Faction Guerrilla Warfare
1- Xbox 360 console(No RROD's or errors)

I am looking for $350 CASH ON PICKUP. Or trade for a home theater projector/TV/PS3. This is a AWSOME deal.

I will PERSONALLY add 10 more games of YOUR choice to this offer for an additional $60. So thats $410 + All popular online games + games of your choice!

Again, I'm only interested in the following.

1- $350 cash on pickup
2- Playstation 3 with a controller and all neccesary hookups(atleast)
3- Home Theater Projector with low hours used and fully functional + screen.
4- Decently sized Television that is fully functional.

I am NOT willing to negotiate on price. This is a insane deal, All these games retail at roughly $40-$60 per game, AND work online. I am ALSO able to add 10 games of YOUR choice. Which is taking time out of my day to get.

Please do not hesitate to contact me via email "implodingjigsaw666@gmail.com"...I am CONSTANTLY refreshing my email so i will respond as soon as possible unless i am sleeping


He even gets a little snarky at the end... all of that stealth burning is taking up so much of his clearly precious time. This is just one variation of his posts too, he just recently posted another one where he ups the price of adding "any game you want" for only a paltry $25 a game!

Part of me wants to bombared him with emails asking if he can install Little Big Planet/Metal Gear etc/Resistance etc or maybe haggle the price down 400 bucks to an even $350,000, part of me also wants to send him an email telling him to cut the crap or I'll report him... of course part of me wants to just outright report him anyways. Maybe I'll do all three.
