I’ve accumulated many video game systems over the years, which I’ve finally decided to sell. All gaming systems come with one original controller, A/V cables, and power cord. All systems and controllers were game-tested long enough to play multiple games and are sold “as is.” I’ve priced these systems BELOW the lowest price listed on Amazon and/or local stores. Playstation: $25 (Additional original controllers available for $5 each) PS2 (fat): $50 PS2 (slim): $50 Sega Master System (my personal favorite): Base system (one controller, A/V and power cables): $65 (Additional original controllers available for $5 each) Super Master System (base system + light phasor gun + 3-D glasses and adapter): $120 (lowest price on Amazon for a similar bundle is $185) Sega Genesis (model 1 or 2): $30 (Additional original controllers available for $5 each) Sega Dreamcast (tested over long-term and works great): $45 (Additional original controllers available for $7 each or two for $10) Intellivision: $60 I’ll gladly provide video of the systems working (and with corresponding serial number for proof) to anyone interested. Buyer pays shipping (~$10). Pickup (Cleveland, OH) is welcomed.
Here's what is left and some prices. Every game pictured comes with the game disc/cartridge and manual. Please purchase a minimum of $10 to make it worthwhile for me to drive to the post office Prices do not include shipping.

Hey, gang! So, my wife and I were recently at our local gaming store and I thought to ask if they happened to get any VA0 Dreamcasts in. I've asked a handful of times over the past couple of years, but not, like, every time I stop in. I'm not generally a system hoarder, but especially for disc-based systems, I enjoy picking up a backup console cheap, in case some belt drive konks out and I need my Rez or Border Down fix or something. Now, I wanted one because of the heartier components and I've heard that it might be easier to chip mod (though that's not really a pressing concern for me, but thinking longterm) due to the board layout. Mostly, though, I wanted one based on it's rep as "toughest, most durable revision" for longevity, not really as a hardware fetishist. Anyway, I was delighted to discover they had one in the back and I walked out with it, bare system, for about $30. Some cursory internet information over lunch (nothing official) suggested that only about the first 100,000 units were VA0, with the majority of systems being the commonly found VA1. I know there's also the VA2 that may or may not play CD-R copies, depending on what website you're reading. I crunched the numbers, and if the Dreamcast sold the generally-listed 10.1 million units, that means that less than 1% of Dreamcasts were VA0. I've also read in passing that that number may or may not include VA0 units sold in Japan. We were ASTOUNDED to read that. We tried to consider the likelihood that one of this tiny sample would end up at our local game shop and in our hands. My brain is much more wired for the "squishier" side of life, I'm not great with numbers and stats and probability. So, rather than speculate on which one is preferable (that's a different thread, I'm sure!), I'm just curious as to if anyone can cite me any sources for numbers on those revisions, sales, etc. I may not know numbers, but I like reliable sources. Most of all, we're curious as to whether that 100K estimate of VA0 models produced is roughly accurate, and if so, is there info (or can someone extrapolate the known sales numbers?) on the ratio of US vs Japan models of the VA0 revision sold? Whatever we find out, we're still amazed that one ended up in our laps. (Also, it plays CD-Rs just fine, for what that's worth.) Thanks in advance, Dreamcast experts. I have faith. If anyone knows this stuff, it's you beautiful maniacs.
