What did he do exactly? Just lead you on?


He was just lazy. He constantly posts a tired ass N64 bundle. What sucks is that I bought a controller/cables in advance because I figured someone would want to sell what they're selling. Maybe he's just lonely.

Also had some other lame-ass "lose" the two best games in her bundle but promise to give them to me after if she found them. :roll: I tell her to just discount it by $30 and we have a deal. She says it's still a good deal otherwise and she'd like to sell it for more. Oh so the games aren't really missing? Yeah because lying is going to get me to drive out and spend money.

When people do crap like that I'm like "Okay, you could have moved all your entire lot at a discount, but now I'm gonna cherry pick your Legend of Zelda and let you keep the rest."


Exactly. I'm just too lazy to run over there for Metal Gear Solid Twin Snakes, and none of the rest really have any sort of profit worth bothering for.

Ive been trying to sell an xbox 360 system on craigslist for a while now, and i havent even had a single phone call or e-mail. Its astounding. I have it at market value (arcade bundle with hdmi for 150) and nothing. Either 360s are becoming more and more worthless by the day, or people have no money.

So I sell a game on Amazon, and a few days after he pays for it, I get this e-mail:

Who does that? I almost feel like canceling the order, just because I hate dealing with stupid people.

CL buyers expect you to give your things away for next to nothing. That's why I gave up on it after trying to sell my old iPhone, iMac and BlackBerry on it (all of which wound up selling elsewhere for more than I was asking on CL).

Take a look around.

Still, you might want to check the "wanted" section instead of posting it for sale.

Bundle includes:

FF 4
FF 5
FF 6
FF7
FF9
CHRONO TRIGGER

These are the version they released on the playstation. These will play on the playstation 2. I have a playstation 2 in working order for sale as well.

I like how FF 4, 5, 6 and Chrono Trigger are all listed as separate games. Reminds me of when people try to list those collection games as 29 actual games.

I think everyone's broke right now. Of course the lowballers with broken english will always be ready to buy your stuff. As long as you are willing to let it go for 90% off. I just tell them to go away.

Honestly, I think that's a little overpriced for an Arcade on craigslist. I see ones with hard drives for $100 regularly.

on a semi-related note....do you guys ever watch that show "pawn stars" on the history channel? its basically just a show about a pawn shop...but the funny part is, pretty much EVERY episode is some idiot trying to sell something for 100 times more than what its worth, and the salespeople always put them in their place and tell them what they have is actually worth and the people ALWAYS get mad and storm out, saying stuff like "what do you mean my priceless antique is fake?! my grandfather gave it to me! there's no way its worth less than 20,000 dollars!" It kinda reminds me of some of these bat-poop insane craigslist people we see in here. its so awesome to see these people get a reality check

I like watching pawn stars. But I can't believe how after people are told what an item is worth (if it's not a fake and worthless) and he asks how much they want for it, they most always say they want the full appraised price. Then he explains how he can't give them the full price because he has to make some money too. It's just common sense he can't give you full price. So retarded.

Years ago there was an episode of the antiques roadshow or some tv show and someone brought in an atari 2600.

EDIT:: ok, I was wrong. Here's the clip.



"the systems? they go for $100, $200 dollars" LOL. Pacman 2600 was one of the worst games ever made on the system, not to mention it's worth less then 10 cents now, there's just so many copies of it stil floating around. Funny though.

Some 15 year old kid calls me and offers me a gift card for a couple controllers I was selling for $10. What's weird is, he lived like 15 minutes away and he wanted me to mail them to him. Um? you can't even walk over? I'm not that stupid to mail something and hope I get paid lol.

LOL good lord - $5 -%10 for common games? $100 - $200 for systems?? When were those EVER worth that much?? Isn't that guy supposed to be a professional antiques appraiser? Where the hell did he come up with those prices?!

BTW there actually was an episode of Pawn Stars where a guy brought in a 2600 and a box of games (they didn't say how many) and wanted to sell it for $100, but they said they had to test it first, and they never got back to it. I would have loved if they showed them telling the guy what they are REALLY worth so the rest of America could see and get a clue already!

IIRC they gave the guy $100 and made a comment on how they will do just fine (or something like that) selling the stuff as long as most of the games work. Really seemed inflated to me giving that much for the stuff, only on a TV show as I could picture plenty of pawn shops giving more like $10 for a 2600 lot like that.

Actually I just saw that episode again last night....they tested the games and they never came back to it....it showed them testing the games and that was it, they never made the guy an offer or anything, considering what they offer people for other expensive stuff, I doubt they offered him anything higher than $20

I ask again, are they:
1) really believing this is a good price for the system and games...
2) want to be "low-balled" to a reasonable price...
3) hoping that "Mr. Idiot" goes for the price...
4) dancing around thinking "We are going to be rich..."

As always .... Fuck

Wow, pay $15 more than the price online and the Cerberus Network code was already used(I emailed him asking about the code)? I know he's going to get someone who buys it and wants his money back after he finds out the code was already redeemed.
