gameboy original for sale - $400 (Rockwall)

I have a old school gameboy that still works as good as the day it was bought. For its age it is in immaculate shape. I have seen them on eBay going for roughly 450 dollars plus. I'm hesitant to sell one of my childhood relics but I need some fast cash because I'm moving. It has one game called wings of fury that's included. If you have any questions let me know. Thanks in advance.

Anyone else tired of all the CASH FOR OLD VIDEO GAMES ads littering Craigslist? Yeah, we get it, vintage games are a hot commodity, and you're trolling for someone looking to get rid of their sons collection of SNES RPGs for pennies on the dollar. I'm tired of people that I know are resellers claiming to be collectors, or wording ads in such a way to try and fool people into thinking you're doing them a favor by taking this stuff off their hands. Give it a break.

Agreed. I have completely given up on trying to get old systems and games. Flea markets have nothing in my area, craigslist people are stupid. Re sellers are raping everything. I just want them to have and enjoy. I don't care about the value of the game.

Not necessarily. The "bootlegs" did hit the sites this morning.

Yeah but bootlegs require modifications to consoles which most people do not have so it would essentially just be a ripoff.

Fell off a truck, most stores just received shipments of the game yesterday and today (most big games arrive days ahead of time to ensure stock on release day)

There are a lot of "speculators" out there who used to buy things like Vinyl Records, Comic Books, Stamps, Atari 2600 games, etc. who are now focusing on games again. 

 

Once this plague of locusts passes through and onto the next thing, SNES -era games should go back to reasonable prices and we can all enjoy them again. :)

There's been a lot of drama on my craigslist lately....

"This is directed to the vermin who placed the phony Upper Coleville Road ad for video games a few weeks ago. You made yourself 15 brand new enemies!!!!!! We got a description of you from the folks on Greenbriar. Backwards baseball hat, red sedan! No doubt you thought this was a pretty good trick, but you are probably not aware that you committed a crime. Theft by deception, harassment by communication!
You were obviously not satisfied with just going to sales early to get games, but thought by pulling this scam you would eliminate your competition at Greenbriar. If this is how you want to be, okay, game on!!!!

"15 brand new enemies"......why would you even bother going to a sale advertising games with that much competition around?? Sounds like a pretty smart trick to me, hope the trickster got some good stuff.

I still try sales advertising games occasionally...but I almost never get anything :/ The competition is too great. My best bet is hitting random sales and hoping for the best.

It's a terrible scam anyway. Didn't the price of gold just tank a bit? This is what happens when you put stock in something that's valuable just because people think it's valuable.

He says it goes for between $20 and $55 on ebay, then suggests $30 is fair?

$500 for an NES (billed as a SNES) and some in-box games. Sounds like a deal to me!

This guy is selling a Sega Genesis, only that it's not. It's a computer inside a Genesis shell, so kudos to that mod at least.
