Craigslist deal today, I bought my first Wii! Somehow, I've never even tried one before, but I figured it was about time.

 

Thought it was a pretty good deal too:

 

Wii System, no box but all paperwork and all cables, ect.

2 Wiimotes with sleeves

2 Nunchuks

Wii Sports

Wii Play

Wii Fit with balance board

New Super Mario Brothers Wii

 

Got the lot for $150

 

Everything was really like new too. And I mean the no kids, non-smokers kind of new!

 

Stopped at DiscTraders and picked up some cheap off brand component video cables for $10. I'm low on composite inputs, and figured it should look better anyway.

 

:cool:

Some nice finds of late. Yesterday I had one of my own...

 

Found the Sega Genesis games Dune and Michael Jackson's Moonwalker at Goodwill. Both were loose, but for 4 bucks total, I did pretty well I'd say.

So, today at a Flea Market I found a SEGA CDX, opened fair cond box, all the connections, power supply, and the pack in game.The guy said the game inside is the pack in game, and he wanted $200.00 saying they're worth $1200 at eBay :roll: whatever.I didn't buy it, just wondering if $200 is a fair price.He said $200 now cuz I'm going to put it on eBay for $400, take it or not.There's a CDX on eBay now for $449, but i can't see $1200.

It took me months and months to get $200 for mine ONLINE.

Unless you are a box collector, I'd skip it. A working CDX shouldn't run you more than $100. Then again, while it's a cool oddity, I prefer having a regular Sega/CD combo with a 32x anyway.

Didn't even have to use my AK. I have to say it was a good day.

 

Another example of why YOU ALWAYS ASK IF THEY HAVE OLD GAMES EVEN IF YOU DON'T SEE ANY $20........

$6

Earthbound

 

WWWWWWWWWWWWWHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :o

 

Jeez, I knew it was a scroe, but I guess it was a bigger one than I thought! It's just a loose cart, after all. Plus, Wikipedia says it sold 140,000 copies in the US, so it's not exactly rare. Honestly, I was more excited about Chrono Trigger CIB...

 

I also have a confession to make. The truth is that I got it an a bag of about 20 titles, all for $6. Most of them were not worth mentioning in the original post (Home Alone 2, etc.), so I didn't. So, I really got EB for about a quarter... :D

 

I've played it a bit, but now I'll really have to dig in if it's that good.

...now go in the woods and look for a Game Gear.

 

Questions:

 

1) When was it built?

 

2) HDMI?

 

3) It works perfectly!? That's more noteworthy than anything else in your post. :lol:

I found one good thing yesterday: Microsoft Sidewinder Precision 2 USB stick, still in plastic bag with unopened manual and driver cd. Red paper tape was still in place on the usb cable end, so I assume it has never been used. Paid 1.98 plus tax.
