Found The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past for $10 with the map at a local pawn shop last week.  It was odd that it also came with a printed out strategy guide for the game in a binder.  That was in pretty gross condition so I took it but immediately threw it out.

I found a new pawnshop this weekend, and they have a decent flat rate pricing structure on games, Blurays & DVDs. I only found " :ps3: Batman: Arkham City GOTY" for $8.00, but I will be going back weekly.

$25 PS2 at a pawn shop in my area, some $1 PS1 games (nothing rare so I doubt I could resell for much), not much else unfortunately.   Worth picking up?

Today I found " :ps2: Haunting Ground" for $5.00 at my new favorite pawn shop. I talked with one of the employees & he is also a video game collector, so my chances of finding anything super rare are pretty slim.

Zelda Collector's Edition COMPLETE for Gamecube $1! It's the one with the originals, and the N64 games on the disc.

Not a bad deal, it was ina  box of PS2 and Xbox games for $1. I may actually keep this one.

 

I need to get a camera for pics of it.

While not a technical pawn shop, my local West Coast Video buys and sells used games. Someone dumped a ton of collector's and limited and greatest edition games off which were reasonably priced as they seem to just go off the standard editions. I passed on the collector's and limiteds as I doubt they had codes.

 

I did snag Fallout New Vegas: Ultimate Edition for $8.50 with tax. I'd bought the standard edition from Best Buy for $10 a while back, beat it and sold it back to them for like $11 or $12 with promos, but I couldn't resist playing through the DLC for that price. (Even though I have all the DLC to play through Fallout 3 with with a similar story)

lol, that's what I hear from everyone. Apparently, the store in my town and two others split off and are still operating under the name. Although I haven't looked into it in years, not sure if the other two are still open. Plus, it's hard to tell as around here at least, every WCV that closed left their signs up out front and shelves in the store, so from the road you have no idea if they're open or closde.

I think it helps too that in my town they have the DVD and game sales locked down as well. You have to leave town and go through interstate traffic for a short bit to get to any of the big chains that sell them.

that's impressive (the finds and that a WCV still exist).

 

I worked at a Movie gallery about 5 years ago, and saw the beginning of the end for the industry. Porn was like 70% of rentals/sales.

Most of the pawns in my area have stopped taking anything older than current gen, which sucks as they would flat price everything and I've picked up some crazy deals that way. However, I got to thinking thinking, and went and talked to the people at one store that I'm in all the time. We made a deal wherein they'll start taking retro and last gen stuff at $5/console and $1/game (no sports, PS1 systems, or Xbox systems) on the condition that I buy all of it at twice what they pay. This is proof that if you form a good relationship with the people at your stores every once in a while you'll get something good out of it.

Also, picked up this stuff for a little under $100 from two different pawns on the oppisite end of town. One of them still carries retro but has usually outrageous prices unless you get one of the other employees, the other never had any video games before so I was surprised to see anything.
