750 for a 4 switch..

Recommended Posts

Wow. That guy's a total idiot.

 

It seems like there's been a huge increase in the number of people pricing way above market value on Kijiji. Is this a trend on Craigslist in the USA too?

There was a woman on Craigslist who wanted $375 for a torn Super Mario Land 2. Eventually she dropped it to $200. Think she saw a BIN on eBay for a new copy and assumed her dirty cart was ultra rare. A charity store near me has a 4 switch....for $400

I was thinking a h6 should be worth 2k then..

I sure hope no one is dumb enough to get ripped off by these people.

That one I posted would be worth 7.50.

That one for 1200 has games too what a bargin!!

Yeah I've seen some ridiculous prices for various consoles/games (and I say that as a happy owner of nearly all Sega Saturn shooters :P). Sadly, lots of people out there are ignorant of the market value and can be duped easily. If you're blowing tons on a sealed unopened copy of something I *sort of* get the justification, but some of these examples are just hilariously brutal.

Hello sir/madam. I see you are selling Atari for $750. Here is my offer for you. I will sell you my Atari for a mere $175. Then you can sell it for $750 and make lots of profit! Message me if interested, I have several units to sell you at this bargain price."

Are you guys kidding?

 

Why I'll bet that Atari is worth more than his trailer with the torn up screen door, and that rusted out muscle car up on cinder blocks in the front yard combined!

It is worth $7.50. Thats about what I pay for them with zero hookups or games.

It is worth about a big mac meal no supersize with a coke in Canada.

I find this funny because I switched from Sega Genesis collecting to Atari 2600 because it was cheaper.

I can give ya a deal 2 for 1200 and 3 for 1700. :P

Don't forget about the time a certain person here wanted $400 for hers with a sealed Pacman. And she all called us poopy heads.

Yeah, about that. Bought a Vader last year for $5, bought a Wico last month for $10, games are a buck or three each, same for power supply and coax adapter. You could pay more, but if it's a spare, I'd wait for a better price.

He came down to 85.00. I would buy it now at 60.00 canadian dollars.

 

5 dollars for a vader! Woah! Amazing!

40CAD would be what it is worth. The atari is 20 games 10 for all and stick 10.

Unless you need one bad I would pass. He wants too much.

Are we taking into consideration the value of the CAD? so .77 cents to the American dollar so the original 750 would be $577.50 for the initial one....umm perhaps did they mean Yen?

 

Are Atari's hard to find up there?

 

(Note to self pack extra Atari's when vacationing in Canada) ;-)

Yes I am from Canada. its the same rip off here and the USA. are dollar is not the yen and there are lots of ataris here.

I bought a coleco, intellivision and a 6 switch for 30 bucks is that cheap enough?

You can bring 7800's tho they are more pricey around the 60 range for a bare console and few to be had.
