True, but look at what it sold on Wii.

Maybe. I think in the commercial when they played Splatoon 2, they were like 4 or 8 individual switches and they each had a pro controller. In the basketball and Mario ones, they only had one joy con each.

Anyone going all digital? With multiple games I want coming out in the next 6 months, it's be nice not to swap carts, but they're also so small, and I only have a 128GB, so I'm not sure it's worth it.

Definitely was.

On a side note, I think that's a great steal up. I'm curious to see if it will go. Some of the issue with posting in that thread, although it's great, is the narrow customer base limits your potential buyers, so if it's something that only a subset of people (like competitive FPS gamers) would care about, it could be a tough sale. Fantastic to the right buyer though.

Oh snap, son. Better find myself something.

Sorry for the confusion. That was meant to be $20 PSN, but I can give either, so it really doesn't matter too much, I suppose.

It may go back up. We'll see. I've never tried one, so I don't know if I'll like it.

I have only online classes this summer and not much work, so I'm thinking about trying some delivering to make extra cash and help cover my tuition, but I expect to have a lot of downtime as well, so portable stuff will be a worthy investment, I think.

Never heard of Abzu, but obviously, I'll give it a shot for free. I'm interested in Tales from the Borderlands. I never really got into the series, but sometimes those games can be fun, depending on the story and level of interaction. I'm glad some developers are recognizing that not every game needs to be a Skyrim, Zelda, etc. or a game with insane visuals. A game can just be fun. Some people don't have time to invest hundreds of hours in every game they play, so it's nice to have something cool and unique for them too. Open-world is awesome and so are RPGs and choice in games, but there's nothing wrong with just fun games either. Not everything has to be challenging or it sucks.

@Jeff I understand keeping the values the same

Tough to quantify/qualify that for me. I don't know. I feel like the spirit is a great steal. I thought, for instance, that MK8D for $15 was a crazy good steal. Sure, we all know many people got their copies for like $35 due to the Best Buy deals, but still, it's a brand new high demand game for $15.

The crappy part is that this stopped working because too many people intentionally looked at it in terms of value (just trying to profit off of the people who are actually in the spirit of this), so it was ruined. The same thing happens with every virtual box. Maybe I'm just a pessimist and biased from my virtual box experience. I feel like it's more of a give and take and great steals and this was a fun way to finally leave value at the door and just get great stuff for great prices.

You win some, you lose some. Sure, I know KOG can make more of a profit off of my stuff than the difference between what he sold the vita for and what he could have gotten. I'm not saying he intentionally made sure of that. I'm just saying it is what it is. It doesn't matter though because he got a great steal and gave a great steal. If your steal isn't up to par, it will revert. That's why, with the risk of sounding like a broken record, I like the idea of competition, but I can see why people like to keep it simple too.

Whatever. After this, I'm done for a while. I hope my "revival" worked, and this gets some good traction and goes strong. I'll check in from time to time. All in all, I still think this was a great idea, Jeff. It just sucks that it gets boiled down to money. When this gets going strong, I'd still like to try my idea in another thread. I'll keep in touch on that front.

I've looked around. I don't think I have $125 worth of stuff I'd be willing to offer. I've given away too much already and don't have that level left. I didn't see that comment and was just more thinking of offering a great steal (IMO) that someone might like. I'm going to try this and see how it goes. It's really all I have left at the moment that I'd be willing to give up for the nomad.

160GB PS3 (good physical condition except plays digital only, disc reader is broken) + two sixasis wireless controllers + Rayman Legends (PS4) + $20 eshop

$15 shipped. If it needs to revert, I understand. If I broke any rules, I'll take the suspension.

I agree. As long as people go through with their steals, I'll go through with mine. Someone in the end is going to have to win, but KOG could make it a "giveaway" except just let it be $45. I'd be fine with that. Or if he wants to just sell it to me for $45, so it creates a loop, that's fine too. I don't care.

I already gave my recommendations. Multiple dibbers and create a competitive atmosphere.

I don't know if it would work, and I respect you wanting to observe the KISS principle, but since you asked...

I feel your pain. I've ran stuff before. It's a pretty crap "job."
