Yes, you can bring stuff to sale.

I hope we get a lot of people to bring us broken stuff to fix, that would be cool.

I mentioned it on Digital Press, so far people are wondering about RROD 360's (paging Gabe lol), a Wii, a game gear with a crappy(ier than normal) screen, and a prototype saturn.

Everyone should bring a wide arrangement of parts, and if not there is a Radio Shack in the mall that is less than a mile away from the hotel.

We should also decide what we want to do about a Benheck room party.

It can start at 8:15 Saturday, basically as soon as that day is over.

Does anyone want to take point on this?

I was just about to post that he'll be there, though he called me just as I was typing :lol:

I mentioned that to him, and he said that his fix usually lasts only a year or less, and it's harder to fix each time it's done.

Well this is more for show, but who knows what might come of it. I have a broken (black) Xbox 360, got rrod. Gab if he wants to do the rrod fix again I'll have that for him to use. I've also got at least one PSOne screen I'll be bringing, and if I don't sell it first we can use that in a demo for how portables are made. It would make for a really cool show if we buy the system and games from the vendors.

Anyways, that's my input.

Regarding the After Party I guess I would just want to play Rockband and play around with whatever display items people have showing.

I'll be bringing a Sega CD with what I believe is a blown fuse, and a Sega Gamegear with an unknown issue. Do you folks charge for labor in addition to parts?

I also have a few broken genesis and *edit: 3rd party snes controllers, and a broken PS1, if anyone wants them. Free, of course.
