Gamestop now selling classic stuff?

Not too much for retail probably, but "refurbished"? Who are they kidding? At the very least and before making such a claim, you think anyone is cleaning out the cartridge port, cleaning the shell, opening up and cleaning the contacts inside the controller and cleaning its shell? :lol:

If I'm gonna pay expensive retail prices for used gear, it's gonna be at the few (only?) mom and pop game shops left in Phoenix, certainly not at Gamestop.

 

But eh, if retrogaming is popular enough that the Stop is going to start carrying the stuff again, I guess I can't complain to much.

My thoughts exactly- although I am going to complain a little bit, seeing as Gamestop selling this stuff again might dry up what little not-collectors priced stuff is around my area. Plus I don't like the whole 'online only, condition not noted' thing. If they can help set a baseline so prices don't rise too high though, it's worth it.

 

Edit: Nevermind, I just found the listing for Bomberman: the 2nd Attack. There goes that idea...

I always think: 30 bucks for an old game? no way. If it's expensive what's the Point of going with the old stuff?

 

Then I look at the latest Releases at 60 Dollars, with all the bullshit DLC and crap, and that awful gameplay, and suddenly Retro doesn't seem that expensive anymore.

 

People are paying 400 bucks for These broken consoles, 65 for a good one seems like a great deal.

 

I don't think it is, don't get me wrong, but I understand how Prices go so high so fast. If there's Hype they can do it.

 

That is the reason why my largest collection is for the PS2. The System isn't "cool". So old games sell mostly for the Price of old games...

 

I'd love to get an SNES, but with common games selling for 20 bucks cartridge only it's hard...

I paid $60 or $70 for a boxed Streets of Rage 3. It was definitely worth it and I've gotten my money's worth with the number of times I have played it with buddies. Another game I paid through the nose for was Adventure Island 3, which I think I paid $70 (aforementioned mom and pop gaming shop). Again worth it. They had the game at their other store in the East Valley and brought it over for me specially (~without~ me having to pay up front). Hard to beat that kind of service.

 

I don't mind paying new game prices for some of these harder to find old games if I know I'm going to get my money's worth in gameplay. Now some of the rubbish games that go for megabucks because of their obscurity, f that noise lol
