James Rolfe is smashing something right now.
Wellllll, not many people still have these old systems and we're looking at a limited market. It's probably gonna sit on my shelves for a while. I'll give ya 50 bucks for it.
The nerd rage inside me was cresting until I realized you were going for the Pawn show angle.
Does it seem odd that they are selling NES games for $8. That seems like the price you would see on xbox or PS2 games new in box at places like wholesale clubs.
Are you saying it should cost more or cost less? Because NES games can fetch a pretty penny due to relative rarity and age.
Less, thought places like Goodwill sold stuff dirt cheap to keep it moving. Didnt think of the rarity angle, or that the demand would be enough either.
Retro gaming on original consoles is massively popular these days and not just amongst the hipsters. That plus the fact that there are only a handful of copies of that particular game make it extremely valuable for the collector crowd.
Old games are fun. Yoshi's Island for SNES is just as enjoyable now as it was when it was first released.
It's because today's games are totally different. Even as far as the Play Station 1, games were still pretty similar to what they were on NES and Sega, just way better in terms of graphics and shit. Now that games are practically a different animal, those retro games stand on their own as a uniquely different experience. Not to mention nostalgia value for people in our age group.
A few years ago I bought "Shining Force 2" for Sega Genesis for $30.
Still probably my favorite video game ever. One day I'll buy a working Genesis again so I can play!
I have been trying to get a copy of Shining Force 3 for under $100 for years. I payed $120 ish to replace my original Saturn and something like 20 games to put it in perspective.
I never got to play SF3, and always wanted to. Looked like so much damn fun!!
I found a play through on youtube and watched it intently only to get to the end and read that the guy stopped playing before he finished with no plans to complete the game. It was a sad moment.
Hahaha!! What a dick.
Someone should go check that place out for copies of Battle Toads.
then Chumlee says something scripted.
So it can be smashed with a hammer?
