Yeah, people do it all the time, :D


I have shipped a few things out, and I have paid with paypal for a few things... Just use common sense.. I don't like to do it, but sometimes someone has some crazy shit for cheap, and you gotta take a little chance right?

It was deleted already... I would think that anyone asking 45 for a nes game, would know something about it... And, if they did, no way they ask 45 for it.....

I put an ad on there for stadium events, and people were really strange about it... Two people emailed me saying they had it sealed from the store, and they heard it was a horrible game, and etc.  I don't know what those bastards got out of it, other than sick pleasure...

I CAN'T BELIEVE I STILL HAVE THIS SITTING AROUND! I GUESS NOW IS THE TIME TO GET RID OF IT AND PASS THIS ALONG TO SOMEONE WHO CAN ENJOY THIS CLASSIC PIECE. I USE TO HAVE ONE BUT RECENTLY SOLDED MY USED ONE AWAY. THE IS IN GOOD CONDITION AND IT'S NOT SEALED AS THE FACTORY NEVER SEALED THESE UNIT MADE BACK THEN.

Hello! Thanks for your inquiry, but I will not sell this item separately as this system is brand new and never used ever. The games I'm including are slightly used but are in mint condition as you can't even tell it has ever been used. Everything comes in it's original box with instruction booklet as well. The asking price for this item is $400.00 cash. I'm also selling a sega genesis, sega cd, with 33 games and I'm asking $400.00 for this entire system and it is used but in excellent condition and the games are mint. This includes all of the original boxes for it as well. If you're interested, you may contact me for further questions. I can be reached at 1-224-723-0594 and I reside in Skokie, IL. Thank you and have a wonderful weekend!
