If it reverts I'd likely take a chance on it. If KOG posted pics I would have insta dibbed assuming it was as nice as he said.

Did the regular PUR go up in price? I thought it was $15

You misunderstood. I wanted the item, I wanted to be sure it was in excellent condition. The price was fine with me. I already explained in out PM why I didn't dib.

But its not $45 when you factor in the deal we will be offering. It will be close to market value. So there is very good reason for concern.

That very well could be, I'm not up on the genesis stuff like some of you are.

Better to let your steal expire. If you retract your dib you won't be able to participate again.

I'll start with this.

Tales Of Vesperia. Special Edition 10th Anniversary Steel Book XBOX 360 - $20 payable to @tonymack21

See the pictures as there some condition issues with the case. The manual has minor damage to the bottom right corner. The soundtrack disc is mint, but the main disc has some cracks around the center but does work. Luckily is the same disc as the regular edition that can be found for cheap if you wanted to replace it.

I say unless @Vynidaris gets on to clear things up we give it to Dashey. No need to let the steal thread sit in limo all night.

Any of the mods on to clear things up? @Lunar @Dustin @Jeff

Problem is even if he did call dibs he is offering the EXACT same thing that went unclaimed. Might as well let Dashey claim the deal.

Only once have I ever seen one on the shelf, and there were only 2. Wish I would have bought one now. I went in to pick up Nioh and didn't have the extra cash. Oh well, I know for a fact I put in more hours into Nioh than I would have the mini.

Just curious if anyone plans to put up a PS3 system or Vita system. Systems only are cool with me.

I think it would have worked, just not how it was implemented. You should have just allowed multiple dibs and if it happened then use the vote system.
