The spam postings on craigslist are trying a new way to get people to e-mail them. Before they were always out of this world deals like $150 for a PS4 with a bunch of games. Now they are posting crap deals probably hoping people email and them to haggle, and now they can send out their spam where to buy crap.

 

Like this one:

 

"We are selling a Nintendo 64!!!! This system is in great condition!! Comes with 2 controllers, Super Mario 64 and Banjo-Kazooie games!!! Asking only $90 on this!! Come on by and check it out if interested!!

Don't reply via craiglist,"

I wouldn't call it stupidity - but I'm not sure who would possibly buy these to hang up.

:wall: Okay, twice now someone's wanted only part of my bundle of whatever I'm selling and tries to tell me the items he or she DOESN'T WANT are worth so much more, so thus selling such-and-such for the price he/she is offering would be such a good deal for me for when I sell the other stuff later.

I can't read the price tags - but I see the GS tags. I'm not sure I follow. How much is he trying to make on these? I can't imagine something like this would be even close to being useful. Even at 99 cents each form GS, nobody is going to want those games.

They're from the dumpster. So if he sells one he's made profit. All those games were just field destroys at Gamestop.

Most are $0.99/$1.99, so either he was dumb enough to clear GS inventory of all the cheapo used games to try and "flip" for $5 a piece, or like ferant said, he's a dumpster diver lol.

Oh. Makes sense, I'm surprised GS would throw away Guitar Hero games, Call of Duty World at War, and Bulletstorm though. I would think they would just keep sitting on them for pretty much forever.

I'm not sure why somone dumpster diving would even bother taking all the sports games. It would have to be something worthwhile to take out of the dumpster since even if it is a dumpster just for gamestop (even though most share dumpsters with other stores/restaraunts next door) you'd still have some food, drink, bathroom cleaning supplies, and other garbage thrown out.

 

Maybe I'll try someday, I can't wait to start pawing through the garbage like some starving racoon.

Just like a lot of YouTube dumpster dive 'finds' I thought that one was rather sad. Are those people just going to end up on hoarders or what? What is the point of finding 191 worthless games?

I sh- you not. This is an ad for an ebay listing that tells you how to take apart a Dreamcast controller.

A lot of different video games
 
My son moved out of my house about a year ago and he left his video game collection. I gave him plenty of time to pick it up so now I'm just going to sell it. Send me emails and we'll try to work out a deal. Thank you and have a wonderful day.
I'm not exactly sure the worth on these but I have made a list to show what is available. This list took me forever. Hopefully it was worth it.

Earthbound
ChronoTrigger
Megaman X3
Harvest moon
Super metroid 
Zelda: a Link to the Past
F-Zero
Secret of Mana
Super Punch-Out
Starfox
DK Country 1 and 2
Super mario RPG
Kirby's dreamland 3
Kirby's Superstar
Super Mario Kart

Pokemon
Yellow 
Red 
Blue
Gold
Silver
Crystal
Ruby
Sapphire 
FireRed 
LeafGreen 
Emerald
All of the games have boxes
  • do NOT contact me with unsolicited services or offers

 

think this is a scam? (sarcasm)

Why would that list "take forever"?

 

In a YouTube video, some guy called up a buyer and mentioned  a bunch of games he was trying to get rid of (throwing in Earthbound and other rare titles here and there) and acted like he didn't know anything about the games, and when the buyer lowballed him by a mile, the guy sent him on a wild goose chase.

Out of all that, there's maybe 2 or 3 games I could sell at a garage sale for a buck a piece. The rest wouldn't take for even 25 cents... hell I doubt anyone would grab them for free.

 

The PS3 cases may be worth keeping, though. Those come in handy every now and again when you find games that aren't in official cases. That is, if they don't stink to high heaven.

 

Other than that, what a bunch of crap. Seriously, are they going to build a table out of those worthless sports games or what?

I've seen C'list ads from "adult professionals" (dealers) lately offering $210 for PS4s/XB1s and $100 for Wii Us.  I'm curious, if they get any responses.
