A lot worth $200 these days, for TEN DOLLARS! Breaks my heart just remembering the day I watched it go... I mean, I had the PS1 and the NES games were BORING since I had played them so much, but still... /tear
It really is a crime to see them go. Especially when they're just tossed in a dumpster. And at $10 for an NES and games, that's just as bad.

Care to share what you paid for the Millipede / Centipede cabs there, Wolfsbora? Understandable if you don't though redface.gif Are you planning to keep them, or refurb and flip?
No problem, Aaron_Henderson, I paid $300 for the Millipede, and $50 for the Centipede.

I'll definitely be keeping the Millipede. Once it's all cleaned up it'll be worth close to $800. As far as the Centipede, I love the artwork, and it is the prequel to Millipede, but it is one of the top collected cabs since there were so many made. To be honest, I may flip it and then invest in a Nintendo cab, I love the shape of them. Also, without destroying anything on the Millipede, I can add Centipede to it with a minor chip change.

And actually Atari (as "Tengen") released games for NES (ports of Sega games like After Burner). I guess it's like today with Microsoft competing with Google yet releasing their best mobile software of Android and iOS and google releasing things on iOS.

Also, I'm still wishing I had all those SNES games from 25 years ago. Some of them are worth $200+ now. Hell, even SMW is like $30...
Yeah, Nintendo had beeen releasing their games to competitors for years during the 80's. Of course, now you'll never see them do that unless they fall hard like Sega and stop making hardware.

I think the blue Game Gear is worth more than a normal Game Gear too.

Would you like me to add you to the club? You didn't say either way.
I'll probably want to vomit if you tell me what they're worth haha. The crazy thing is that I bought the Virtual Boy for $25 brand new from EB after they weren't selling.

Sure, add me to the club! I'll be getting my games room all set up and I'll post it up here as I make some progress. It'll be full of retro goodness as well as new stuff too.

Wolfsbora added to club. See the first post.

The boxed Virtual Boy is around $250 on Ebay, more depending on condition and if it includes games. Thank me later. biggrin.gif

We would love to see your pictures. Looking forward to it.

Thanks for adding me! I've always been a fan of this thread. My Virtual Boy was in top notch condition, as we're the games. Such a shame!! It was Nintendo's biggest failure but it was also Nintendo's most unique console. Cool in many ways.

Grabbed a couple more things...won a few bucks at the horse races, and spent it on -

3 x near mint, CIB, black label PS1 games for $25 Canadian delivered -

Alone in the Dark : A New Nightmare
Tomb Raider 3
Need for Speed Porsche Unleashed

And for $2 Candian -

Sega Classics Collection PS2, CIB, near mint as well

I might sell Need for Speed Porsche Unleashed to get my money back though...not sure yet. Would rather have that on PC anyway, and it seems to be worth enough to cover what I paid for everything, or close to it anyway. Also, moved into the new room, just finished getting everything all setup and finally got to sit down and play with my light guns lol I hadn't even tested my Saturn until today...works great except the cord on the controller is mangled and needs to be replaced. Doesn't matter at the moment since I only have light gun games for it anyway. I'll re-cord it when I get the chance though, no big deal. I noticed the cord was in rough shape when I got it but the alternative was to take a crappy third party pad instead...

EDIT - messaged the guy I bought the Saturn from about the Sega CD he said he got in awhile ago. It was broken when he got it, could have bought it "as-is", but decided to let him fix it first instead. Well, I guess it's working, cause I am going to go in to the store tomorrow to see if I can work out a straight trade deal (for games, no cash) again like I did on the Saturn. Hopefully he'll take some of the stuff I got today, but I will bring a bunch of random stuff to see what I can work out. I will likely want to grab a game too...not sure yet. I might just grab the console and cables.

Sega CD model 1 or 2?

Have fun collecting games for it and paying outrageous prices.

No interest in Sega CD collecting for that reason (Saturn too). Both can play backups without a modchip...
