I was at a community yard sale today, and didn't find much gaming related for the first hour or so. Usually by then, everything good is gone.

Then at a house as I was walking away, a kid brings out an NES with Mario/Duck Hunt, Mario 2, Mario 3, Metroid, and Ice Hockey, plus a controller and zapper. I didn't even see him do it, but my GF did. $20 and it's mine.

Snagged a legit copy of Pokemon FireRed for $10 shipped on eBay. Listing said 27d remaining so I assume I got it right as it went up.


Also, while collecting the Pokemon GBA games I noticed- did they make Emerald's label with a different kind of material? I see more worn-out labels for that game than the rest combined. Even the copies I had years ago had that problem.

12 Controllers (1 being a Sharp NES TV controller)

This was a Facebook marketplace find by accident. I stumbled upon it and it had just been listed. He was asking $300 for it and I asked him what he would be willing to take. He said $200 and I told him sold. Im not sure what an overall value would be for the lot but id venture to say $500+ I may sit down today and see what values I'm looking at for them all. I am gonna keep some of them and sell some. Just not sure what yet. This ranks up there for me and my finds.

If it was cheap enough I'd definitely buy the controller to go with my Sharp TV. I do already have one, but the TV'S came with two. Justification!!

Is that 360 controller on the top actually wired? I've been wanting an oem wired 360 controller so please lmk.

Anyway, had a sick CL get.

For free. Don't really care what it's "worth" as it's just a really nice display that I plan to use with an old PC tower + Dreamcast. The one I got didn't have superbright running (small miracle) and is displaying fine even with the brightness all the way down.

Yeah it's wired. I have a couple of other wired ones too I could trade/sell. This white one isn't in great shape iirc.

As for your monitor find - is it really 22"? That's pretty bigger for a 4:3 monitor... yes

Yep, it's 70 pounds with most of the weight in the front, so that was fun. I already fired up an old dos game on one tower, then also tested with LOTR DVD and BD. Dark scenes and it looks very nice.

PM incoming on the controller.

Put them in a plastic bag with a couple dryer sheets for a while. I recently had a few O2 games that smelled like smoke and I was surprised how well it worked. I left them in for like a week while on vacation though.

I don't trust Amazon prices at all. It's filled with idiots who want hundreds of dollars for stuff that isn't even worth three dollars. Just because some bozo is asking for $80 doesn't mean it's actually worth that much. :P

That said I checked eBay and the price is closer to $50. Wow.

It was a weak overall Sunday, but I did pickup:

-- Cyborg (Angelina Jolie) on DVD $0.99
-- Double Team (Van Damme/Rourke/Dennis Rodman) on DVD $0.99
-- 3rd Party GBA SP zipper folio case for $1.99


I'm keeping DT since it's so stupid it's funny. The SP case I'm not sure about. It's still new in retail carton, so it may go to eBay for the collector folks. I think I have Cyborg already, need to eventually sort that scifi movie collection of mine...

I found a PS4 Pro. It was at a yard sale (I saw quite a few around today. It must be for the holiday). She said she was selling it because her son wasn't doing his homework. She was selling it for $150. I actually told her it was worth more, but I guess she didn't care. She was just selling it as more of a lesson to him. She even made him put the bag in my car. Brutal, but at least he'll probably turn out better than most of these damn entitled millennials out here.

Haha, I already had one myself. I'm not sure what to do with this one yet. I just couldn't pass on $150. My brother doesn't have a PS4, so he could probably get some use out of it.

found a white wii (with gamecube ports) for $19 but was hesitant to pick it up because it didn't have the sensor bar or power plug.

Should I head back and pick it up??

I'd pass.

Don't all Wiis have GC ports?

Clarification: only the older Wiis have GC ports. Newer ones (usually called Wii Mini) removed the ports. I do know there are Wiis with the ports in at least white, black, and red.

I saw a few Wii's at local Goodwills for $15 system only. They are too prevalent, to be worth a lot these days since you can use the Wii U to play them.

Is it still cool to custom firmware Wii's? Maybe that will drum up interest in my black Wii mini.

Maybe I don't have a Mini then?

It's black, lacks the gamecube ports, but has a SD card slot.

When did the Wii Mini ever come out? This is the first I have ever heard of it.

Nov. 2013 in the States. It came out a year after the Wii U for some reason. It was supposed to be a more budget friendly Wii and was only like $99.

It lacked internet, so no online multiplayer or eshop, no SD card slot, no Gamecube compatibility, and no component output..

Yeah and it eventually came with MarioKart Wii bundled in too. I actually saw some on shelves as recently as last year though I assume with the demand of the Switch they stopped making it.

Found a 3ds deal on Facebook and I'm hoping that it's still there when I get home tomorrow.
