Im not sure wheather I passed up a great deal or not.

by BlackDS Fri Jul 16, 2010 9:28 pm

Hello all. I had recently found on ebay an item simply titled "old game systems", and it included:
A boxed american Turbo Duo + a Japanese adapter + 250 burned games for the CD
A boxed Goldstar 3DO
Loose Atari 2600
Boxed N64
Boxed Gamecube + Broadband Adapter + Phantasy Star Online 1 & 2 (one of the rarest games)
Boxed Dreamcast

Now, it was 200 dollars for the whole lot, but the kicker is that there was no picture, therefore I passed it up. And I only really want the GC game and the turbo duo. Did I just make a big mistake?

oops, i didnt even see the new ebay subforum :oops:

I would have done the same without a picture.

I think you know the answer to that question....

Here's a link to the auction for those interested. The listing is really poorly done, and the guy has 1 feedback as a seller (albeit positive)

The formatting is making my eyes bleed

but seriously, if it was legit that would have bee a decent deal.
Rather be safe than sorry though and out 200 bucks.

Turbo Duo power Av cable, BLAHBLAH


That could be interpreted as cables only, not an actual duo. Yes not everyone has a camera, but most people have cell phones. Surely a friend has a cell phone that can at least take a crappy picture for you if you're selling something that expensive. Last feedback was 9 months ago. Maybe a terrible listing, maybe a hijacked account. I wouldn't have gone for it either.

There's also no mention if any of it works. I'd say you were quite right to pass on it.

At least you can invest the 200 dollars on something else.

Lot of misspelling, can tell a rushed E-Bay post. Experienced seller would have at least included a pic, considering what all was being sold. A chance could have been legitimate. Low chance of recovery on buyer's end since if there is little feedback. There are three pages worth tough. A lot of feedbacks proves a continual seller that would want to keep an active E-Bay seller account.
