Yeah, it was a beast. Between the system and joystick, it wouldn't have fit flat rate. I'dve dreaded sending that across the country...

Okay, I was going to say...

Though of note that it doesn't apply to retro. I would love to get some of their retro games for those prices, even at disk only... (PDS for $250? Yes, please!)

I remember a few people here were asking, so here's the report on my surplus systems:

Neo-Geo CD: Japanese model (I don't know if this is region free or not), seems to work fine. Played a music CD and the only game I own, Samurai Shodown RPG, without issue. The loading times do make Nocturne in the Moonlight on Saturn seem zippy, though...
CDX: Cart works, as expected. CD drive, well... it works... barely. A music CD, if left alone, will play with a few hiccup pauses. Skipping tracks, though, is a no-no. (A request to start on track 3 took longer than if I'd let 1&2 play.) Eye of the Beholder CD was fired up and started fine, but there was noticable input lag, especially during fights. The music also did not always play, and when I pulled up the map, I had to open and reclose the CD door to get it to load. It never became unplayable, though I can not guarantee how it would respond later in games...

If there is interest in either of these, let me know. I'm going to be looking into the CDX issue for any potential fix.

Yeah, I'm debating a few offers for it should something come up I really want, but the drama of late is really turning me off. On Tuesday, I should be able to test my surplus systems and decide what to get rid of. I've confirmed that my CDX and Neo-Geo CD will be heading out, but not confirmed as to where... I'm also debating, but have not commit to, if I want to trade my Aero Fighters. It is legit, but a former rental.

I hadn't, but given that his last few had something like 6 outer variants and some inner ones, I wouldn't be surprised if it went even more insane. I'm content with a single copy on each PS4 and Vita.

> Haha. I think there is a variant that is more valuable?

Yeah, Vic loves his variants. The only one I have as one is the KS version of CoH2.

As for the complete collections, yeah, part of me thought I was nuts to even do the N64. It and the Vita will probably be my biggest 2. There's a reason I wrote off things like Saturn and TG16, and the ones I'm looking at doing are a little more obscure... Then again, with how many systems I'm looking at, I might be able to do a complete SNES set if I abandoned the others. (That Exertainment Bike game, though...)

Not yet, though it looks like one fool paid that. Do note the post said SUB $100. A few bundles are available right now for $60. A couple of auctions with just the game have closed stupidly low, but those seem to be more an anomoly than normal. I would not be surprised if in a couple of years this is a $100 game, though.

A budget of $1000 won't do it for most systems. That might get you a cart only US VB collection. Maybe a set of 32X games? Looking at your list, here's what I think:

PS2: This would be a massive undertaking. At almost 2000 games, even buying in bulk will be pricey. A few games are becoming quite expensive, like the ones mentioned. I would not be surprised to hear a full set here to be north of $15K.
GC: Much more managable, but games like Phantasy Star Online 1&2 Plus and NCAA College Basketball 2K3 can blow a budget if you're not careful. The library is notably smaller, though, and I'd guess can be done for about $6-7K.
DC: You know the stories- people sell off US copies to get JP copies, and make a mint. (Example 1: Mars Matrix.) But opening the door to imports also blows up the library, and opens the door on hunting down the rare and almost as expensive JP games. (Battle Garega, anyone?) I might peg this in the $7-8K range.
PSP: Summon Night 5 and Class of Heroes 2 will be your rares here for a US retail set, but both are still easy to get sub-$100. A few imports crack this number, as do some complete limited editions. Non-retail gets you some very rare (and presumedly expensive) oddities, like a Hilton training program on UMD. There are quite a few games nonetheless, and I'd guess this set to be $5-6K, but I'd expect this one to appreciate moreso than most others you mention.
N64: As someone working on this, I can say it's not too bad. There are only a handful over $100, and with just under 300 games, an end that's not a pipe dream. A US cart set would be $3-4K.
XB: This seems to be the hidden gem, but not for much longer, I think. Jurassic Park Operation Genesis seems to be the high one, and is starting to push $100. Even at 900 US games, I'd guess a set to still be a tad under $9K. Like PSP, I see this one going up.

Another system for consideration could be the Game Gear. Only a few games have jumped for this, and with a US library smaller than the N64, this might be doable for about $2000-2500.

It'd be for whatever tickles my fancy. Rare stuff I don't have and want tends to do that well. Something like a Vectrex might get me for systems... but like I said, I want to verify all operating conditions first...

That could also be a possibility, but I'm going to verify everything works properly before I do anything.
