Get phone numbers. If they play that game, sign them up for some courtesy calls from various businesses. Credit card companies are good ones, they'll hound you. Timeshares as well.


That's a good idea. I mean, it takes 2 seconds to say "I changed my mind". Instead you're just left hanging. I've signed people up for spam before, never phone though. I should try that. I'm afraid of the karma though.

Come on dude, 60 games x $50 retail for each game = $3000. That's not even including tax or the system itself. $650 is a steal.

$50?! I think you're forgetting all the shovelware out there. Plus the fact that they downloaded all those games for free.

What if they ripped the ISOs themselves?

What about the charge of Criminal Harassment, which in the state of Massachusetts carries a penalty of up to 2 1/2 years in prison and/or $1,000, as well as the results of any civil litigation, surely that's worse than/is karma?

I speak from experience of having someone do it to me. Not worth it for a shitty Craigslist deal or otherwise, Civil Litigation yielded a decent chunk of change.

Whether they did or not, all the games are on an external HDD, rendering them valueless, unlike the actual copies. If they ripped them (assuming they did), why don't they include the actual disks?

Not on craigslist although I've seen ads such as these advertising FPS tournaments for cash prizes, but this just seems too damn sketchy to me. These flyers pop up from time to time in ghetto/poor areas (next to the hand made "we buy houses 4 cash any condition" and "we buy cars cash money bling bling" ones), just sound like a con/hustle to me. Show up with your $100 cash buy in or whatever to some abandoned warehouse location probably and either get rolled or the tournament is staged somehow.

I don't see how anyone would find out you did it unless you were really dumb about it. Sign them up for like two things a week for a month, or until you aren't pissed off anymore. Are the Cops really going to spend resources on someone getting too many spam emails or solicitation calls? Would they make the companies (some of which may not even be in the US) trace back the IP address and date and time of who posted their number to the site?

I almost had a Delorean at one point, till I saw the price the owner wanted($10k). It was parked on some dusty backroad up the line from me and I happened to see it when I was hanging out with my one buddy and we were on our way to his one friends' house.

Since then I've seen one more for sale or being repaired around here but I didn't bother stopping to gawk.:-#

That's cool! I just looked up how much they (DMC-12) sell for now, and if it was running, that actually would have been a good deal compared to what I saw them priced for. People seem to think that since it was in Back to the Future, people will automatically buy them for more than new cars cost today :roll:

That was the marketing speak that GameStop was using when they stopped taking GameCube trade ins. Someone thought that meant it was worth something.

People are stupid.

Actually somebody bought up the remaining stock of parts that were leftover from when Delorean was still making the cars a while ago with the intention of putting together as many of the cars as possible from those parts.

There was a similar operation, maybe the same one, several years ago that was using DeLorean parts with modern engines and transmissions, with modern features, to make cars for 50-60k.

Would be pretty badass to have one, even though stainless steel is brittle and heavy.

I saw one about 4 years ago that some guy was hauling at a rest stop, it was crushed, a tree had fallen on it during a hurricane. Poor car only had something like 500 original miles.

Posted Image Idiots that think they're going to get paid for having a hacked system. Isn't that the whole point of having a hacked system is to get games for cheaper/free??? You could buy the originals of all those for less than the amount he's selling that for. What a moron.
