What he was saying is that these are romhacks that have been put into a cartridge. There is a market for them, although I'm certainly not part of it.

exactly. i have a few (a couple of zelda repros and earthbound zero), but i'm not big on these.

would another one of these be Mega Man 8 - Mega Man & Bass? Some guy is selling that one and Super Mario World 3 - Return to Dinosaur land for $95 each

edit- and how much are they actually worth if anything?

yeah. those are repros too. they are way overpriced. SNES repros go for $40-60; NES repros go for as low as $25 and on up. some people are into them, some aren't (and some are in the middle like me)

I have a running post on CL looking to buy old gaming stuff, but it keeps getting flagged now. There's a guy who owns this "Higher Ground Gaming" site who keeps spamming the VG section and I'm assuming he has a program or buddies who flag stuff. Another guy said his has been getting flagged as well, but he sells more recent games.

Nothing I can do about it I guess, it just really sucks to keep having to put my ad up a few times a day. Funny thing is maybe it works in my favor, being constantly towards the top of the page lol. Some people are just jerks.

I don't get the decision to not have a GameCube disc reader on the system. Is it just to resell GCN games as eShop downloads later? Is it to keep the cost down? I can't imagine adding GameCube BC would cost a lot of money.

This asshole has been reselling every game that goes remotely on sale. He must have cleared out a lot of the best buy gaming blowout stuff and realized how many tens of dollars he could profit by only wasting hours of his time selling them on Craigslist!

Did a little digging and found an old thread talking about a reputable site called: gamereproductions.com http://www.cheapassg...ad.php?t=217043
Considering the games on that site cost about $40, I guess it's an okay deal for those who want repro carts. Anyway it's still a ripoff anyway for a bunch of romhacks.

I don't think it would even be worth that at resale.

Yeah, I think face value on that lot would be around $110; offer 70% of that at most.

It's not so much as stupidity but more of an annoyance, when people decide to spam up Craigslist and list every single game they have in separate posts. You'll 20 line items of one guy's listing of games. Seriously? You have to list out FIFA 11, FIFA 12, and Rage in 3 separate posts? Just consolidate the damn listing in one post. It comes up in searches anyways! Ugh.

The belief that if something is older, it should definitely sell more.

Ebay has the black 2600 for 20+ and the woody for 50-60 and most come with some games.

Like olengie said if its old its worth more mentality is at work here

That was the full ad, no pics. I'm not real familiar with Atari consoles, but that seems more like a ~$50 bundle.

i know what you mean!!
I have been trying to find a NES for so long now.
My goodwill wants $100 for NES's and craigslist is just as bad, if not worse :roll:
