FRANK DREBIN, SERVED.
I'm dead what the heck do you think my penis looks like?
a decomposed penis? lol
...and dont call me shirley..
Dang, look at all those disagrees. I must be out of touch with the gaming community. Ok, It's interesting. (0_0)
Man I love the History Collection stuff. I've got all of them. I just received the PSX collection not too long ago. They're amazing. Nice to see them getting attention.
Lets see a bitesize gameboy. Oh wait...
Nice to see this ripped from Reddit...sigh: http://www.reddit.com/r/gam...
Yeah because everybody here visits Reddit...sigh.
Doesn't matter if not everyone visits reddit. The image came from reddit and therefore is the proper source. Since the site didn't source it, it is considered stealing/plagerism.
Tell it to a judge.
Go cry to Gameranx website not here.
That's all well and good but how do you play it?
You can buy those tiny console models on ebay. I have that exact same model, but for the Dreamcast. It opens up, comes with the controller, an extra VMU and Space Channel 5 disc and case. Its a pretty cool collector type model item. I purchased it from a company in Japan for 10 dollars plus shipping. It was like 15 dollars total I think. This was about a year or two ago so I dont remember the exact price.
I refuse to pay the prices scammers on eBay are asking for. Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't 300 yen like a few bucks? That's how much the whole collection cost but eBay sellers want as high as $50 and for an incomplete set $20 my arse eff eBay. Yup 300 yen is like 3-4 USD. I think you got ripped bud.
Maybe so. The price was listed in U.S dollars, shipped from Japan. I probably did get ripped off, but I didn't research into the collection. Mainly, I just wanted the Dreamcast model, nothing more. I saw it for 10 bucks and bought it. If I could get the whole collection for a few bucks that would be cool to. If I was buying the whole set than yah, big waste of money. A one time, 10 dollar purchase, not so bad. Its a pretty cool, well replicated model. Price is justified.
The DC model alone should be like 25-99 cents. These are toy capsules from vending machines lol. You know like the plastic toy capsules here in the US that cost 25-99 cents. This is why I stay away from eBay.
Oh, well thats not so bad. I like ebay. I can purchase items not available in the states. I have a fairly extensive collection of gaming items, collectibles and randoms. I'm sure I probably "over paid" for a lot of those items, but it doesn't bother me. If I can be offered a fair price than its fine with me. I paid someone 10 dollars for a 99 cent item that I could never get a hold of otherwise. I see nothing wrong with that. Thats how people make money. Seems fair to me. Plus, he has to pay ebay fees. So he made what, like 6 to 8 dollars maybe? You can't expect someone to charge exact pricing or close to it. Ebay is there for people to make a profit. I mean, if I could go down to the local toy capsule machine then I would have no need to use ebay. Supply and demand my friend. He made a profit and I got the item I wanted. Thats how it should work.
i understand what you are saying, but those fees arent as high as you think. for someone to sell an item thats 25 cents, for 10 dollars is extortion. hes at tops, is gonna make like what you said 6-8 dollars from a 25 cent item. hes also charging you for the shipping lol. he [the company] could of sold it for a lot less and still made a profit. also if hes [the company] from japan that means he can get those items for 25 cents each, so it didnt cost him squat. i would of understood, if the company/store was in the states, and they had to buy/import the items, then pay ebays fees, and then sell it to you, but its not even like that. that company is just straight ripping people off and i would stay away from them but i speak for myself. i also buy items i cant find here in the states but i delve around for price/information to avoid scammers.
Im glad we can continue this conversation haha. I don't see it as a scam or ripoff. Again, as long as the price is within a reasonable range than no issues. Obviously, if it was priced at 20 dollars, plus 5 dollar shipping than yah, no go. 10 dollars? He is practically giving the Ebay item away for next to nothing. I'm definitely not envious of his 5 dollars. The way I see it, he is supposed to charge 10, so he can make 6 to 8 bucks. If it cost me a quarter or even a dollar myself, I'm not putting it on Ebay for anything less than maybe 8 dollars. He or the company, is only doing what I would do in that exact situation....make a profit. If I can find it cheaper, great. A buck or 2 isnt really going to sway my judgement though. If the items were identical and the price difference were 10 dollars, than yah. Btw, after talking about this topic I decided to add the psx to my collection. I bought a blue model about an hour ago (already have the white one). I paid 14.99 and it came with free shipping. Money well spent. I see no issue.
One Of The Best Consoles Of All Time, The PSX has such a larger library of quality RPGs (so damn expensive)
And people complain about there hands cramping playing handhelds....
