I'm not exactly seeing what's so bad about these. Unless it's JUST a ticket to actually have one secured to buy. If so, that's fucking asinine.


I'm not sure about the last one, but the first two were for $20 preorder receipts at Toys'r'us that the guy is selling for $300 and $600

it looks like they are selling their $20 reserve for $300-$600.. So on top of that, you have to shell out the difference...

People are dumb

why would you have taken it out of the box, only to sell it in 2 weeks >.> (NES btw)

And for only $35? The guy's either an idiot or a troll...which I guess would still make him an idiot.

I didn't even notice the price, but chances of being murdered are many times higher than legitimate sale.

As far as the Wii U receipt thing goes... think of it like this... Many of the people who put the deposit down are amateur flippers and might not have the cash to buy the entire console regardless of demand. I am personally going to invest $100 on a $20 receipt the day before with a ad on craigslist that states something to the affect ... "you have the receipt and aren't buying one... $100 cash for the receipt..."

So you're going to spend $100 just to essentially stand in line?

Used Nintendo Wii with a gun attachment. Also says a part is missing from the Wii but it does not say which part. The price, you ask? A mere $175, even though the price of a brand new Wii, which includes all parts and two games, just dropped to $129.99.

There isn't a line... most times with these console sales, at least in my experience in Las Vegas... these n00bs can't afford to pay for the console and GameStop etc. just holds them for 7 days before releasing the consoles back into the "wild."

I know I am joining the crowd a bit... but I am looking forward to this system and $80 to some poor SOB (wanna-be) flipper won't tax me too much.

That's why you already see the $300-600 for the receipt being advertised... which is asinine!!

Wipe the snoot off your nose, kid.. take your $80 and beat it!!! :)

Saw an ad for Resident Evil Directors Cut.........only $300!!! Hoped on Ebay, dumbass probably saw the $400 sealed copy and ignored every other copy which went for $20 or less.

I put up an ad again saying that I buy old games and 80s toys and I CONSTANTLY get idiots emailing me saying "i got a bunch of nintendo games" then I ask which games and which system and they just say "I dont know, there is a bunch of them". Seriously how do they expect me to make them an offer with no info? And when they refuse to tell me anything I just say I'll give them $20 and they never respond! They have no idea what they have yet they DO know the value of each game?? The rare chance that they send a list or a picture, their "bunch" of games is 2 or 3 sports games

"First person to come pick them up will get an AMAZING deal!

Here are the 9 games, cases included:

PS2:
Max Payne
Major League baseball 2K5
All-Star Baseball 2005
NBA Live 2004
Madden 06
Madden 2005
Madden 2004
Madden 2003
NCAA March Madness 2003 (disc only, no case)

Video Games are pretty expensive, but I'm willing to let these 9 games go for cheap!

Take all 9 for just $9! I just want them gone. So you get all 9 for less than the price of one new game!

By the way, PlayStation3 can usually play PS2 video games (backwards Compatible)"

:-k So he's selling an NES (can barely see it off to the lower right) with a sh!tty TV and wants $150 for it. Pretty sure that slot on the TV is NOT for NES Cartridges.....

*EDIT*
Nevermind, I wasn't even aware that these existed. Still wouldn't pay $150 for it though.

It may look dumb, but I bet one of those crazy ebay powersellers could make money on that (Lukie charges $10 each for example).

Personally I wouldn't touch it though, a lot of folks are using burned discs with Dreamcasts so the values are mainly running on hardcore collector types and faith. It's not like say, the n64, where your gamer segment is still using the original carts.

It would be different if it were say Sonic *insert subtitle* game, where people may actually want the game, whereas who is going to be looking for 2k1 basketball?
