I always email people when I see stupid prices on Guitar Hero and Rockband stuff. Goodwill always has those wired and wireless guitars for $6 apiece. Sometimes Ill see a mic for $4 and drums for maybe $10. Then I try to explain that Big Lots was selling some of those games for $5 apiece brand new. They also have Tony Hawk Ride and DJ Hero bundles brand new for $20-$25 so why would anyone give them $50 for their used stuff? Of course all they do in response is cuss and tell me how they spend yadda yadda amount on it a few years ago.

Assuming he means Black ops 2? Where do the cases go on these new games?


Probably a redbox ripoff copy.

While the game might be stolen, I do know several people who just throw the cases and manuals away and stick all of their games into those big folders.

Such a waste to do so. Imo. But I guess its to save space I suppose.

Yeah, it's a waste, but some people only see value in the game itself. I mean, you get the same trade-in value from GameStop whether or not you have a case. And for a lot of people, games are just something to do. When you think about it, we're the crazy ones for devoting so much space to rows of plastic cases filled with discs and pieces of paper. Ha ha. I wouldn't have it any other way, though.

True. Haha. But its so much better to display the games in their original cases rather than in a lame binder or cd case. And the manuals do have some type of value, depending on what it is.

I'm in the middle. I prefer keeping my games in CD wallets, but I would never throw away their cases. I just stash them all in a closet where they can't be seen.

Well, yeah, but what I'm saying is that these people don't really view them as collectible and don't think the manuals hold any value because they're just paper. A lot of these guys are probably the same ones who go on Craigslist and think that their old disc-only games are still worth the original MSRP.

Nintendo Wii U!!! Yours Tonite!!! - $1500

I like the one beer next to the console. I assume it either means you get the beer free with the $1500 cost, or the more likely meaning is that this fool has been drinking.

a guy is looking to sell his young tiger reticulated python for a working ps3 and games, he is only trading the snake, nothing else, (e.g. no enclosure)

Wii U priced plummeting by the hour, down to just 50 or so profit from the crack whores trying to make a quick buck. Hopefully they just return them and waste gas and time.

Well my craiglist findings are ruined now since it will be inundated with wii u's for a couple weeks. The price isn't too bad, but the fact that he hoardzzz... It is great to see the listings where people ask for $700+ though.

a glut (look it up) of Wii's on the market come Christmas when little Freddy Flipper loses out on all his $5 preorders when his "buy my piece of paper for $100" scam falls apart....

Its Ebays fault they let you list 50 free items a month with no insertion fees now and you only pay if you sell the item. (but they charge a bigger % on the final value fee of your sale) So anyone can list anything no matter how ridiculous.

Hmmmm North Jersey, now why does it look like it's suffered from severe water damage (despite being still factory sealed)...no chance it was damaged in Hurricane Sandy now is there???

Speaking of the WiiU reseller wannabes, if you've got a few minutes free time, you can call/email a bunch of the resellers anonymously and arrange for them to meet "you" (really each other) in a public place...given that idiots savvy shoppers are already camping out at various stores (news has reported that some particularly pathetic retards dedicated buyers have been camped out at some Best Buys in SoCal since LAST Monday...no idea why), you could send them to meet "you" outside the store. Tell them you're camped out, second in line, and will pay extra if they get down there ASAP.

SPLASH!

Damn all of you OC people! Get off my lawn!

And yes, the wii hoarders are hillariously salty. Ive seen a few for 10-20 more then price after tax. They should just return them instead of paying interest on their credit cards they used to pay for it in the first place. But idiots will be idiots.
