The ones I go after are new, sealed games. Exactly like they were first released.....just marked down. A few months after release, I go around looking for "player's choice" pricing on original games.

Bargain Hunters...

I just read that Nintendo plans on keeping their first-party software titles for the Revolution below 59.99. Then Iwata went on to say that he can't see first party titles selling for more than $50. Do you buy titles at "just-released" prices? Personally, I wait. I bought The Mark of Kri a while bac...

my first system was the Atari 5200. My cousins had a 2600 and an intellivision. Played the mess out of that 5200. My sister always wanted to play missile command and my Dad schooled me in Atari football. My sister and I combined our allowances and bought a NES in 87 (the ROB version, cuz it was the ...

DS now or DS later

Ok, if you had $135.00 to spend now, would you purchase a DS (circuit city is running a special this week, free copy of Super Mario DS and a free carrying case when you purchase the DS system at $129.99), or wait for the redesigned DS Lite?

I was thinking about buying one then heard the rumors of a redesign. I really want one of those backlit GBA:SPs, but can't justify buying one when I already have two (nes classic and regular). Now I can just buy the redesigned DS and get a couple launch games really cheap.

I have Prime 1, but have only played it a couple times. I am thinking of getting Prime 2 since it is at the Player's Choice price now. Plus, I can find plenty of copies without the player's choice stripe on the packaging. I hate those things. :evil:

I found my toploader in the downstairs bedroom, face down on the carpet, in the box (was mint, in other words). Unfortunetly, heavy rains caused flooding in that bedroom and the box was drenched. The system seems ok. It wasn't drenched, but looked like it was sweating. I let it dry out, but have not...

The Rev is the only next-gen console that I'll get asap. I never had an X-Box and haven't seen anything worth while on the 360. The PS3 will be way to expensive for this gamer at launch. It's the Rev for me until 2007 (maybe 2008).

You know, I don't post on here much at all. I am in the planning stages of my SNESp. I'm not going to win any beauty contests with the case design of my SNESp, but I'm not going to spend extra money on a kit just to make the case pretty. Every portable on here is awesome because it works! I find thi...

Man, I should have checked this Sat! Anyway, I just got back from K-Mart and saw one buried in the game section. The price mark was 26.99, but when I asked if that was the correct price, she rang it up and sure enough...13.00. I asked if they had any more and she starts walking off........I follow.....

How long do you wait to purchase systems or games?

Personally, I try to wait at least a year (or the first price reduction). Every system I own with the exception of the Dreamcast, GBA, and GBA SP, has been purchased a year or more after the system's release. When would you buy these systems? Here's my take: PSP - $150-100. DS - $100-50 PS3 - $200-1...

Just got back from watching the film. Overall, very good Star Wars film. I'd put 3,4,and 5 as the best of the series (4 and 5 being better than 3 and 5 as the best of the series, IMO). I was disappointed with the Chewbacca scenes. What happened to the rest of the wookies? What made Chewie leave? How...

Very interesting. Also, did everyone see the report on how much the PS3 could cost? Upwards of $450. Ouch!
