Modified Xbox with 5 games, only $700!!!

Some deals are good, though. Some guy has an add for a Premium w/gears of War, Lost Planet, and Halo 2 for $350. I'd consider biting if I had the money and means to pick it up.

Make sure it's warranty covered. Not because it will happen but because it may.

If all those games were mint, MAYBE. However you know he picked up like 100 out of those 120 total, years later at flea markets for $.10 a piece.

I decided to send him an e-mail anyway. He could only list 10 of them and tell me that none of them have boxes or manuals. I told him without more details, I'd have a hard time offering more than $50. We'll see where it goes.

how about mine the girl had 10 PS2 games all pretty old wanted $50 for them.. Before I decide to haggle I ask about the conditions..

She says they all are in like new condition but some don't have books and all have scratches but play fine ??????

Lol I asked her what she considered new condition and she said no scratches and all the stuff with them.. I said exactly and said your games are not in new condition at all because they have missing components and scratches so I said $20 for all of them and she told me I was nuts lol..

I told her good luck with the games there are plenty of suckers out there...

and to the guy that posted saying someone was selling a wii for $600 thats alright there was a guy selling a modded 360 labeling it as new just opened to mod lol for $700.. ..

if that's the one that has a 360, wii, ps3 or somesuch for $125 usually, it's a scam, it's one of those clickthrough scams I think where he steals your credit card info.

Yeah but the weird thing is, I''ve seen those ads here in LA where they list the person as being by LAX/inglewood, TOTAL ghetto ass area, and they have a phone number to call.

Usually it's like a Wii or X360 or PS3 for $150 like you say...I just imagine it's some gang of niggers waiting for you to roll up with cash so they can rob rape and murder you, not necessarily in that order.

SPLASH!

Yes, Carlos, I would love to buy your dirty looking 360 that's haphazardly thrown on the floor of what appears to be a crackhouse of some sort. The pill bottle next to it also makes me feel real good about contacting you. The "fatige" controller will probably be really tight and I'm looking forward to playing the scratched up disc only copy of NBA2K7 on it. And don't listen to the others-- punctuation is highly overrated. Not even hyphens in your phone number matter.

please, lure me out to east madison and shank me with your finest shank! :lol:

The best part is that it appears to have Def Jam ICON in the disc tray, and it's not included. Apparently, he was just using it as a "murder simulator" so he could kill the buyer Nigger style.

This one is probably the funniest listing I've seen:

http://tucson.craigs.../352885713.html

GT GRAN TURISMO 3
Priced at Game express for $24.99
WILLING TO SELL FOR $30

RED FACTION
Priced at Game express for $19.99
WILLING TO SELL FOR $5

TONY HAWK'S ~ UNDERGROUND
Priced at Game express for $51.99
WILLING TO SELL FOR $25

The funniest one is GT3. Not only does he put some outrageous retail price, his price is actually $6 more than it!

Gameboy Colour w/ games -$150
