Bought a bunch of PSX stuff from a guy. I traveled about an hour to get to him. He was clearly at a rough point in his life and wanted to unload about 60-70 PSX games. Problem was most of the cases were cracked, the discs had scratches on the majority of them and well over half of them were sports titles. I gave him $70 for everything. Probably too much. He thought he was giving me the greatest deal ever and I didn't have the heart to tell him that most of the stuff I had zero interest in even at a quarter a game. There were a couple titles that were decent: Resident Evil 2, Syphon Filter 2 (sealed), Parasite Eve w/ Guide, Dino Crisis w/ Guide, Final Fantasy VIII (GH and missing disc 2). I probably need to make a rule that I have no interest in discs with scratches unless the game is so valuable it makes repairing the disc (if feasible) worthwhile.

Can anyone tell me what version this is? I've done a bit of research and can't find a definite answer. Is this a good price if I can knock it down to sub $200?

Edit - It looks similar to the Instant Game Bundle, but to me the PS3 looks a tad bit different. Could however be the picture angle. Located near a military base and sometimes some really cool and unusual video game merch rolls through.

Ah, that's what I was thinking. For some reason the top/front looked a bit different, but is probably just the angle of the picture. Thanks for the help.

The ad was taken down but for $100 I got a dreamcast lot with 15 or so mediocre games, 3 light guns (including the Japanese official one) a keyboard, a mouse, 12 or so controllers, 3 systems (2 black sega sports) and 5-6 jump packs and 5 or so vmu units.

I mostly wanted the light guns and keyboard but bought the whole lot because I could come near even on selling the extras.

I sold it to someone for $5. Ended up getting $16 in credit from one store and $37 in credit from another. Still have a few pieces left and kept about 5-10 games and the guides. I'll break even, so I'm happy.
