Chicago CAGs.

So I had to fix my PS3 over the RLOD issue. I gotta sell it and get a slim version. I'm gonna put it up on craigslist. What's a good asking price for it? It's an 80GB with 4-usb ports and backwards compatible model.

Any takers here?


If it needs to be fixed, then you should be able to get $75-$85 for it, as long as you say in the listing that it needs approx. $100 in repairs

Hey does anyone here on how bad Forte might be injured, or how long he'll be out? (Chicago guy lol) <.< Plus Hanie sucks Ballz ugh. Though his line was letting get sacked a lot last game too. <.<'

I read somewhere that he doesn't need surgery so he can come maybe in two-three weeks but if I was him I would heal and avoid major injury that can affect my contract talks.

Any who might be interested in going to the C2E2 show in April, the early bird pricing discounts are only good till 12/31. Just thought I'd throw that out there as a reminder.

It says they have group discounts for 10 or more tickets...I wonder how much the discount is? My, bro, Dad, and I buy 3 tickets right there. I am pretty sure ryosnk goes as well as mrosnwo.

I didn't see the part about group tickets. I'm probably in for 5 with my group, maybe 6. Gotta find out the price.

C2E2 is basically what Wizard World used to be 6 years ago. If you are really into autographs , go to Wizard World. If you are into toys, comics, movies, etc, I would go to C2E2. (sorry I thought you were one of the regulars. Maybe I was thinking of weaponx?)

Don't worry I collect comics and toys still but never had a chance to go to c2e2 and wizard world to me is blah.

If I go I would probably take my son (3 years) to his first comic con. time to start thinking on his cosplay. :)

Yeah, seems to be the "hot" time to check best buy is between 2-3am. I missed a couple, but I got a couple. Too many games, not enough cash.

And yeah, c2e2 is my preferred show now as well. More about comics, toys, video games, etc. Wizard is a celebrity fest now. It was cool seeing Bruce Campbell last year, but aside from that, it's gone down hill. However, they announced Bruce is back next year, as is Shatner(although he was awful 2 years ago). So are some True Blood people. See, 8+ months out and they're trying to book as many actors as they can already. I prefer the cool exhibits on display at c2e2, however.

I've got myself and maybe 5 others going to c2e2 but not for the whole weekend just probably Saturday. How much are the tix discounted for 10 people?

Edit: looks like the max is 10 tickets and they come out to 15 dollars each. I believe they charge tax on top of that though

^ My daughter's been there, but I haven't. I've always assumed it's like charging admission to a store, but I could be wrong. Check the yelp.com comments.


So I'm at Golf Mill today, and waiting for my wife to finish getting her eyebrows done, and I stumble across an arcade in one end. I had no clue there was one and I've been going there for years (mostly for the movie theatre and occasionally GameStop). Lots of nostalgia with the cabinet selection but it's empty except for me and the three guys at the counter with their backs turned, playing Left 4 Dead. XD

Anyone interested in a new MadCatz Wireless steering wheel for xbox 360? I posted it on Craigslist but if a CAG in the Schaumburg area wants it I can sell it cheaper.

I just got it today from an Xbox Live contest but not really a big fan of racing games.

I would say VideoGames Etc (listed in OP). It's a nice shop for finding older games and they do a hefty amount of repairs last time I checked too. I haven't had a 360 repaired, but I did get a PS2 repaired many years ago and the service was fast and relatively affordable.

VideoGames Etc.

Pm what your asking price for the steering wheel.



I had my Vectrex fixed at Videogames Etc and it was affordable so I would also recommend checking that place out.

I bought it used for $50 around 2004. I never knew anyone that had one and I always wanted one cause it looked cool.
