If the games are that bad scratched I'd imagine it would be bad wear and tear for the disc laser on your console.

You can always buy loose disc cheap to make them CIB mint.


why do you keep saying that scratched disks hurt the laser? I've never seen any documentation of this and I can't come up with a way that it would damage the console. It will either work or it won't.

With scratched discs systems give more "retries" to try and read the data, if you only need one try with a normal disc, imagine a heavy scratched media, several retries each time you want to play it.

The laser is most likely on the entire time the console is on. Spinning the disk past the laser isn't going to do anything to the laser. If you want to say it might affect the servo motor that moves the laser assembly I might believe you, but I can't believe that it would make a measurable difference.

Paid around $15 for everything. The stack of disk-only games were actually in the trash. A vendor said he wouldn't take them and the kid threw a fit and threw the bag of games in the trash. I tried to decide whether or not to look, but I'm glad I did. I've wanted a copy of Rayman :V

Tried my first flea market a few weeks ago. They had 2 areas an indoor area with people who priced everything and the outdoor tables where you rented them for $3 a day. Outside i found Marvel Ultimate Alliance Gold Edition for $5

I was very happy.

NES Cleaning Kit (Boxed) - .50
NBA Jam - 2
System Shock 2 (CIJ) - 1
4 Guides (Hardback = Fable III) - 5


Everything was asking price. The NES cleaning kit seems to have all of it's paper work but the little stick for cleaning games is a generic one and the Styrofoam block is missing (the Walmart price tag says 9.97). The Fable III guide was $2 with the other a buck each.
62 Guides For Trade Brand Then Alphatized Updated 3-6-10.

Almost just picked up FF and Secret of Mana, then I decided just to grab them all. Glad I did because I had no idea that Demon's Crest had value.
