Jesus! I've seen a few of these over the years at game stores, but never for under market value. That's an excellent deal!

A mint used Saga Saturn and 2 games and all hookups and at least one controller. All I did was trade in some things I was not using at a local retail shop and they let me take the hall home for free. I later sold the same lot with Saga Saturn for another working PlayStation 2 later on.

I used to own Daytona USA and Virtua Fighter 2 I was undecided as a collector back when I traded  my Sega Saturn, games, controller, and hookups.

Today I got a Nintendo deluxe set complete in box (except for the system) everything was still in it's original plastic bags lucky for me I have a extra system to make it complete. Here'swhat happend a old friend was helping his brother move and found it in the attic. I haven't seen him in years and had lost touch.He went to a local game store in my area to sell it then he started talking to the store owner about a big collector who would of loved to have this. The owner said he new of a big collector too.(one guess who that was lol.)thay figured out it was me he gave my old friend my number and I finally get to have a mint condition rob the robot for free. Thanks Tim.

While replying to another topic, I remembered back when I joined GameStop's rewards program, the very first game I bought as a member was Blood Will Tell. I can't remember the actual price I paid, but it was between $10-15 ($9-13 after discount).

That was back in 1995. It's a whole new world out there now. The AC adaptor wasn't functioning. They told me that upfront. I was able to order one from SNK U.S.A. back then.
