pawn shop score

Post by Maximo2703 » Tue Aug 15, 2006 6:26 pm

Today i went to the pawn shop in town ,and i asked the owner if he was still interested in buying my Xbox 1 off me. He said yeah ,but not today. Then i asked him if he got any slim line ps2's in in which he told me yeah ,and showed me one in the window. The price tag showed 80 bux with 3 games of choice , a memory card, hook ups ,and a controller. I was gonna just go to the store ,and get 80 out then i figured i'd offer to do a trade. So he agreed to take my Xbox plus 20 bux for the PS2. So i went home grabbed the Xbox ,and he gave me that whole slimline PS2 setup for basicly 20 bux. Not a bad score if you ask me.

All my accessories are Sony branded too. I got Devil May Cry, Baulders Gate Dark Alliance ,and Star Ocean (that was the only good ones he had). I unfornetly the bummer is i grabbed a bad copy of DMC (he had 2) its all scratched up ,and won't go beyond the Capcom screen. I tried cleaning it once ,but didnt get better. i may try again to clean it with the scratch remover.

I'm lucky i still have a few of my PS1 games still laying around that stores wouldnt take when i was selling PS2/1 stuff. One of which is Rayman. Although at least it will tied me over till i get some more games. I gotta start rebuilding my collection.

I originally had Rygar Jak n Daxtar Jak 3 Ratchet n Clank Ratchet 3 ICO Devil May Cry Kingdom Hearts Sly Cooper Maximo Ghost to Glory ,and Maximo Army of Zin.

I say not a bad score considering a slimline sells for 130 plus tax then like 25 bux for the a sony branded mem card then 10-20 bux for each of those games. Now i can get a bunch of games without breaking the bank.

Now i can enjoy the new games like Yakuza God of War 2 ,and Okami. YAY! im still kicking my self in the ass for originally selling my old ps2 ,but at least i got a nice new lil slimline. The thing looks practically brand new theres no scratches ,or blemmishs anywhere on anything except the devil may cry disc.

Totally unrelated, but your sig is too tall.

Anyway, that seems like a pretty average deal to me. A used PS2 around here typically costs around $70-$80, so you basically got three games that usually run about $5 used for free.

Personally, I don't think that was that good a deal.

He traded an "Xbox 1" and $20 for a slim PS2 at a pawn shop.

it was already modded. But, i didnt care for the N64 emulation ,and i had more fun playing super nes ports on gamecube using the gameboy player ,and a retro pad.

Yeah, I'd never trade my Xbox + $20 for a PS2. If anything, he should be the one giving you the $20.

That was an even worse deal. You could have sold it for like 2-3 times as much.

like where? im not doing Ebay ,or one of those seller to seller sites i dont trust'em. And, in my area theres not many places to sell it. The gaming chains wont take it because its modded ,and i tried selling it to people i knew ,and others for 100-150 ,and no one wanted it even when they knew it was modded.

i dont think so i enjoy playing the much more comfortable ps2 controller than that brick of a xbox 1 controller ,and all my xbox 1 games play on my 360 so there wasnt a need for my xbox 1 anymore.

Oh hell, I missed the part where he said he also gave the guy $20. I thought it was a straight trade.

BTW, should you really be selling modded systems to pawn shops? I just hope you wiped whatever you had stored on there...

And your sig is still too big, Maximo.
