Columns--Cart only

Caesar's Palace--Cart and color manual

Tengen Ms. Pac Man--CIB

Klax--CIB

Serious responses only please. TIA.

Shipped or plus shipping? Sorry I forgot to include that in my original post. I would agree with that figure if it does not include shipping. The figure I had in mind is $45-$50 shipped.

 

Thanks for replying!

What is the "1 One-Player Joystick" and "1 Two-Player Joystick"? Are you just saying it comes with 2 Genesis arcade sticks?

Sorry I didn't make that more clear. The "1-Player joystick" is like a regular arcade stick. It has one joystick on it. The "2-player joystick" has two joysticks on it and allows 2 people to play against each other in a game like Ms. Pac Man without needing 2 separate controllers hooked up. I will try to get some pics soon so that you can see what I mean. Hope my explanation helps!

Had a spurt of energy and here are pics of the 2 joysticks. I stand corrected about the 2-Player one. It doesn't have 2 joysticks, it has a Y-cable to be plugged into the controller ports and you flip a switch and hand it to the second person to play. I apologize for my misrepresentation of it.

 

Note that neither of them have been tested yet. I didn't have enough energy to do that. Sorry for that too.

 

The first 3 pics are the standard Sega arcade stick and the last 3 pics are the third party 2-player stick.

Finally got to test this today. Everything except the 2 player joystick works. I've been looking at eBay though and am thinking I may do better to sell it in parts like I've been doing with some of my other systems. Am I right about that?

In this case you probably will get more selling the items individually, though keep in mind that will be more work in the end. You'll have to decide if it's worth the extra trouble for what may only be a $10-$20 difference.

 

You could also try craigslist. Less shipping hassle and no eBay fees, if you're willing to do a local transaction.

Probably. I would at least sell the games as a separate lot.

Thanks, both of you. I appreciate the advice. I think I will break up the lot into components. I am going to have to go with eBay, though, because I'm disabled and can't drive to meet someone locally, and won't allow a pickup where I live--too dangerous. I'm doing a lot of eBay selling right now and have my own postal scale. I just ride my electric scooter down to the mailboxes to give the mail carrier my packages. So even with the fees, eBay is the lesser of 2 evils right now.

How do I know if I have a Gen 1 or Gen 2 Genesis? Need to know for the RF and power cables. Thanks!

 

ETA: If necessary, I will try to post a pic sometime this week.

They look completely different.

Does yours have a volume control and headphone jack? 1 it is, if not probably 2.

A local retrogames shop had a deal they advertised with a listing every week for 2 months on Craigslist: Model 2 Genny with power/video cable, one controller, and 15 games (obviously would have been loose low-tier carts) for $20. I was in his shop last week and asked him how many people had taken him up on that generous package. His response? He held his hand up making a circle.

 

Apparently, there's just nowhere near the demand for the Genesis as there is for other consoles. I suspect demand will rise in time, but it's still surprising to me, given how massively popular the Genny was during the early to mid 90s.
