whats the least you ever payed for a cart?

Recommended Posts

Another time I found a boxed Astrocade with 3 rare games, a typewriter-written label of Artillery duel, Muncher, and Blast Droids, plus about 6 other games, all for $5 + tax. And the Astrocade worked, and all the games worked too. I sold the Astrocade since I had one, and kept and cartridges that wasn't a double.

They separated the hard drive and the Final Fantasy game that used it, overpriced the game, and wAy underpriced the hard drive,thinking you can't use it without the game. PLus doesn't the Slim PS2 have a hard drive built in, or does someone have a copy of FF-something and is unable to play it due to not having a hard drive?

Besides free games, I've gotten quite a few carts in the 25-50 cent range over the years. I've also bought yard sale lots that averaged under 25 cents a game; in particular, the Atari set I bought for $5 a few years ago had 40 games, so even without the hardware (2 consoles, joysticks, paddles, driving controllers), that was only 12.5 cents per game. And my fiancée recently bought a huge lot for $20 that had around 100 games for different consoles, so I guess that's about 20 cents apiece -- again, without counting any associated hardware or non-game stuff.

Free of course. The next closest would probably be 25 cents. Around 1993 a yardsale was selling their collection at 25 cents per game. That was one of the times I came home with a garbage bag full of 2600 carts :D

 

Actually there was the time I bought a system with 120 games for $10 so that's what, 8 cents per cart?

how many carts were there?

 

About a dozen. I was mad when Gamestop bought them out & jacked up the prices tenfold on all cart games.
