I picked up nearly 30 blu rays in two days from local pawn shops for a mere 125 bucks.

They were priced 5-6 bucks a piece.. all brand new ones too.

THE MIST

STARSHIP TROOPERS TRILOGY (10 FREAKING BUCKS!!!)

DRILLBIT TAYLOR

NIMS ISLAND

What happens in vegas

+24 more

Great freaking deal.. clerk had no idea they were different from DVD so they had them priced the same.. it was an insanely great 2 days :)

The most important question to ask is if I can kill someone with the Batrang


Just call my local bestbuy and they had no clue about a sale..

I don't really plan on playing this one, but... I found a Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance II for the xbox at a pawn shop for $8.00. I figured "what the hey" and grabbed it.

Good find.

The first dark alliance game was a really fun hack and slash game. One of my all time favorite games.

DAII dissapointed me. It was too short and had a bad story. I don't know why it goes for so much now.

I like older PS1 games, and came upon a copy of Pool Hustler for $1.20 total with tax. It is complete, game has very few scratches, and the case looks brand new.
Looks like on ebay and amazon its selling for $7-15.

Do you think it will be hard to sell?

Today I went to my favorite pawn shop and found...

:gc:
$5.35- Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes(very good shape)

:gc:
$5.35- Resident Evil: Zero(discs & manual in very good shape, case is a little beat up)

:gc:
$5.35- Resident Evil(discs in very good shape, case, manual & artwork is beat up)

I find it strange that I can look for a game like "Twin Snakes" for months, and then I find two copies in three weeks. I wish my luck were more consistent.

I think it was one of the last games released by Interplay before they went belly up. That may be why it goes for a bit. I just hope that if the license is still active, that Bethesda doesn't end up making the third part of the series(if there EVER is one that is), since I'm sure they'll make it some first person shitfest like Oblivion.

Unless the next game in the series were done like the other two, I'd steer clear.

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.

Passed up Zelda: Shitty Princess (GC) for $13 today. Right now, there's not really any way to make a profit out of it.

Is that really necessary to post?

I walked by a bagel shop the other day, I was going to get a locks bagel but passed on it.
Also, today I was going to grab a coffee at Starbucks but decided not to.

No, SegaSonic is a legend here on this thread and its fun to see what he finds. Your post was very unnecessary. Don't be a dick.

Anyways, i found a 360 Wireless Controller for 7$ today.

Wow. It's nice to see the newbie taking care of business and talking smack. I for one am glad to hear what Segasonic finds, but don't really care to read his opinions about Zelda. We know he doesn't like it, and that's ok. He doesn't need to keep rampling about it, IMO.

Thanks, Kysarkills.

yourlefthand-i see what you mean, but did my post really hurt anything? If you don't wanna read about my bashing on Zelda, then don't read it or put me on your ignore list.

I haven't actually been seriously pawn hopping lately because I've been low on funds. These lastest finds are just from going to one of the 4 pawn shops that are closest to me. Hopefully next week I can actually go pawn hopping & find some really good stuff. I bet the local hoarder is having a field day with me MIA.

Anyone know of any shops like this in the Brampton/Mississauga/Toronto area? I'd love to check in on some of these and cash in on these deals. Unfortunately haven't seen any shops around here like that. =(

I stopped into my local pawn shop today to ask them if they had any wonky PS2's they could sell me for cheap to take advantage of the Gamestop $100 deal, but they said they didn't have any.

I also tried the one local game shop to no avail as well. The clerk was originally going to give me one for $10, but once they tested the one broken system and it read a disc, they upped the price to $15. Then, they said the owner told them to NOT sell the broken systems at all, since they get $20-25 or more on Ebay.

Oh well...guess I'm sitting out this chance to make a couple hundred in credit at Gamestop's expense.
