That’s unfortunate. As excited as I am for ps5, I’m going to wait a while before purchasing and I’ll focus on my ps3/ps4 backlogs. It would have been nice is Sony decided to focus on BC for all gens, but not all that surprising since it’s Sony and all. No day 1 purchase for me... maybe by summer.

Wait you thought the PS5 will be full BC on all PS1, PS2, PS3, and PS4 games? I didn't and wasn't expecting them to do it you know with PS Now, license issues and all. But yeah I thought Sony said PS4 BC only and I'm cool with that. So I don't know where you get that idea from.

For those of you who mentioned having a Samsung; have you ever had a problem with the video blacking out for about three seconds every once in a while?  I'll be sitting there play a game and suddenly the screen goes black (but the audio continues to play okay through my receiver) and after a couple seconds it will come back perfectly fine.  I don't recall it ever happening on the PS3, 4k Player or Cable box, but seems to have at least once a play sessions on the PS4 Pro.  I suspected it could be anything between a handshake issue, hdcp issue, the fact that it's going through the non-HDR Gen 1 VR Box or even the 4K HDMI cables (which shouldn't be an issue considering they're Monoprice) but I can't seem to figure it out.  Searches on the internet seem to indicate other people experience these blank outs with their Samsung TV but nobody seems to know the cause or fix.

Only 3 Seconds? That''s the only problem you got? I have a Samsung 4K KU6290 (low end model) that sometimes freezes and black out with the sound still playing lol. To fix it I would need to power off the TV (unplug the AC from the outlet, wait a few minutes, and plug it back in). The TV is currently setup as my PC monitor & the PS4 is hooked to it. I bought it back in late Jan 2017 and I think my TV is on its last legs. It has two circle white spots and bleeding on the background. It's been like this for almost a year now. Noticeable if you watch a dark film. Just waiting for it to die so I get a new one. Going with a Sony or Vizio this time. Here's some photos:

Savers usually has the best stuff in my neck of the woods but I think that is because they tend to charge more and items stay on the shelf longer. Goodwill also tends to price video game stuff higher or they just put it on their auction site. Salvation army is the cheapest near me. I also do well with amvets

Salvation Army is by far the cheapest for me for video games ($2-$4) but i rarely find good games i want.

 

Goodwill is the best place for me when it comes to finding video games. I think because the games are usually unorganized and mixed up together side by side with the DVD / Blu-Ray. Because of that customers can't really spot out the video game labels. Prices are fixed and pretty reasonable on used games ($6-$10) and new games ($15-$30). However since the games are kept in the wild at the back of the store i do come across a lot of empty cases (stolen disc / cart) which kind of sucks.

 

Savers is a hit or miss for me and their video game prices are usually ridiculously high ($10-$30) especially on retro games. But not going to lie they really have good stuffs in everything (name brands electronics, clothes, etc.) than the other two so I try not to go here as often or else I be broke as hell.

Anyone play Chasm? Seems like a solid buy for less than $8.

Bought it on 8/5 and I just finished it today. Very fun and game is like metroidvania so you have to constantly re-trace your steps as you explore areas and locate shortcuts. Also the maps are auto-generated and very well done. You might get a lost for a bit but the maps are not that large with many exits. Enemies and bosses are not to difficult and definitely worth a play through. Buy it when it's on sale again.

#14310727 Shenmue 3 with steelbook $19.99 Bestbuy.com (back again)

Posted by postaboy on 01 August 2020 - 04:16 AM

Is it really "free" shipping if you are paying an extra $11 for the game. The whole point of this site is to find games for the cheapest prices.

Thanks bro. Got it for $9 this evening. Brickseek says "Out of Stock" at my local WM but I was able to find a copy between a row of PS4 games.

I have started picking up DVDs/Blu Ray that I find. Streaming is fine but content could be pulled at anytime. Most of the thrift near me have them for $1.49-$1.99 each. I picked up the James Bond 007 Ultimate Collection DVD set and Seinfeld season 3 at Amvets. The bond set looked untouched. 20 movies for $24. Seinfeld was $3. I also found season 1+2, and 4 of always sunny in Philadelphia for $1.50 for each I set.discs are all in nice shape. I also found the Randy Savage macho madness 3 disc set for $2

Same here. I have been buying a lot of blu-ray movies this past two years. My blu-ray has grown from 22 two years ago to 91 now. I usually seek out for disney pixar, anime, marvel, TV shows, and 80s films and must come complete with its slip (if any). 

 

All I need to find is an external blu-ray player (internal too) for my PC. I just hate using my video game systems to watch them.

I am curious how you are finding "mint complete" anything at a thrift store/Goodwill. The few times I have ever went to those type places the  games are in very poor condition/incomplete. Many years ago I got several Mattel intellivision games in box at Goodwill. That's about all I ever scored at a thrift shop. I guess you have been very fortunate. I would not say what you are reporting is very common.

I don't know where you live but I live in Los Angeles. We have a thrift store in every corner and I have my go to spot for video games. I'm picky when it comes to video games so I only buy mint copy of games for my personal collection and resell to others. If it's not complete or in poor condition I usually just trade them into GameStop for store credit. Please note I'm an IT service tech for the LAUSD and I get to work all over LA, leave early around 3pm, and checkout the local thrift stores in the city where I'm schedule to work at. On average I visit about 30-40 different thrift stores per month just to kill time and bypass LA horrible traffic.

 

Visit the thrift thread here. I'm very active and you can see all of my thrift finds w/ photo for this year. - https://www.cheapass...-findings-here/ . My recent find is another original WOW CE for $13. This will be going up eBay soon for $400.

Now how would I sell that without getting ripped off? I wouldn't trust eBay to back me if a buyer files a claim. There's a sealed one that supposedly sold for $699, but I wouldn't expect to actually receive that money.

List it as a Buy it Now only, select immediate payment required at checkout, take very good pictures and accurately describe your item, and write in your description signature required. I have sold hundreds of rare games worth $50-$500 on eBay and I have yet to experience issues with my buyers. For example, I sold a mint complete copy of Tenkaichi 3 PS2 (got it from a local thrift for $3) for $150 awhile back and shipped it via USPS with tracking and signature. I'm also sold a used complete mint Collector's Edition of original World of Warcraft (got it from a local goodwill for $10) early this year for $420 shipped. Both received a positive feedback from my buyers.

Fell Seal is a solid Final Fantasy Tactics-like. It seems much more polished than the Mercenaries games.

Never heard of it till now and I really enjoyed the Mercenaries games. Thanks. Purchased.

Scored me four complete DBZ games (2 copies of Tenkaichi 3) for $3 each last night and the game discs look almost perfect. I sold my Wii version of Tenkaichi 3 on Amazon a couple years ago and I was stunned to see Tenkaichi 3 fetch more (actually a lot more) money than the Wii version.
