I'm looking for the following:

PS2, modded, preferably slim

Gamecube, modded

Xbox, original, also modded

Sega Saturn, I don't think modding is necessary on these but if so then modded is obviously preferred


PM me to work out a deal or whatever.

The kind of modding that's usually not allowed to be talked about in video game forums, sir.

Hi there and welcome to the forums! I like your username. Clever play of words: Danzig!! hehe

 

Unfortunately I don't have any modded consoles for sale. Not sure if you are aware of this or not, but there is a retrogaming convention happening Saturday July 14th at the Heron Point Convention Center in Lombard, IL. You might be able to find what you're looking for there. All of us will gather there to hang out as well.  Here is the official PR release of the event for more info:

 

Remember how much fun you used to have

playing Atari, Nintendo and all kinds of games on your computer? Well,

you will have the rare opportunity to play these great games again at

the Video Game Summit, Chicago 's premier video game trade show. In

fact, dealers in retro games will be on hand offering games,

controllers,systems and memorabilia and will be prepared to buy or trade

for the games you have held onto since you were a kid. Who knows, you

might just have an Atari cartridge worth $1000 or more collecting dust

in your attic.

"Retrogaming," the playing and collecting of classic video and computer

games, is more popular than ever.

In fact, a dedicated group of programmers still issues new games for

game systems,such as the Atari 2600, last seen in retail stores over

fifteen years ago. The Video Game Summit, now in its eighth year,

brings together classic and modern generation gamers from all over the

country to swap stories, games and to compete in sanctioned tournaments

and raffles.

The event is open to the public and people of all ages with an interest in

video games or computers are encouraged to attend. According to the

event's organizer, Dan Iacovelli, "we plan to have many retro and modern

game consoles for play". There will be many tournaments, including those for

obscure systems such as the Turbografx and Atari Jaguar.

The date of the show will be July 14th, 2012 from 11am to 6pm at The

Heron Point Convention Center,665 West North Avenue , Lombard,IL

(adjacent from the Fairfield Inn and Suites hotel)

Admission to the show is $5.00 per person (children 12 and under with an Adult

are Free) and booths for vendors are $30.00 (a booth consist of three

2 x 5 tables 2 side tables and one front table) booth price includes

admission for two and a choice of ad size full page (8.5 by 10)

or half page(8.5 by 5),We will once again have free Wi-Fi access.

For more information on how to register, please contact me. We are looking for anyone who has retro video games they wish to sell.

Oh, this is not your typical video game site. 

We like to openly discuss just about anything, even modding and etc.  The only things I would say is frowned on, is the one time some guy started spamming people and trying to promote his website.  I would also not want people selling roms or doing other illegal stuff.  I would also not like to be sued, so links to that stuff is frowned upon, even though you can search for anything with "the google"...


I would like to think the guys that hang around here, would rather spend some serious money and time trying to find a real cartridge or game disc, rather than even think about a rom of said game. 

However, besides that we are pretty chill.

I recently bought a "modded" PS2, however, not to play pirated games.  I love The Fifth Element, and found a PAL version (only version available) of the New York Racer (which ironically is not available to play in NY) :))  So, the modded PS2 will boot PAL games, which was cheaper than trying to mod one, or whatever.  It is so much fun, however, many TVs do not have a PAL/NTSC switch, so I had to hook it up to my HDTV Projector, which was awesome!


Thanks for singing up!

That convention sounds awesome! I'll have to check it out to bolster my SNES library, which is sadly currently at ZERO games!

"I would like to think the guys that hang around here, would rather spend some serious money and time trying to find a real cartridge or game disc, rather than even think about a rom of said game."

This would be ideal, but I'm a cheap bastard and I love emulators for the price and convenience (plus romhacks are fun sometimes).  I used to have a modded PS2, but I donated it to a buddy who had to sell all his video games due to financial problems, THEN THE BASTARD SOLD THE PS2!!! Que sera, though.

One day I'll have every game for every console I currently own, but until then I will gladly accept chipped/flashed systems and/or emulation as a perfectly cromulent subsitute.

+1 for cromulent (I wish we had a "karma" system here)

Selling other people's games and systems is not ok.  Ahem, my brother for selling the family n64 and all the games, including the tetris games that I bought with my hard earned money, like $50 plus for each game....

I am cheap, or maybe I just like to get good deals, but I have messed with that stuff, and I hate them.  It is so much better to play it fo' real, but I am not a hater...

Jeez, trying to find a way to add a rep system is proving to be more of a challenge than I thought, but every good forum needs one!

I think on the saturn you can play backups and imports with that RAM cart adapter?

From what I understand it either has to be chipped or there's a "swap-trick".

Yeah, Dan's right. You need to chip your Saturn to play back ups. Action Replays are pretty nifty devices as they let you play imports and take advantage of games that require 4 megs of RAM. I have one, and use it to play the definitive home port of X-Men Vs. Street Fighter. Ya just gotta be careful with the cartridge slot as it's VERY finicky from what i've heard. It has trouble reading carts if you keep inserting/removing carts. I've never removed my A/R from the system.

Yes wear and tear on the cartridge slot for the Saturn is ridiculous.

I realize I'm necrobumping here but I highly recommend an Xbox. Get an xbox, a copy of MechAssault and an Action Replay mem card. Get the UnleashX dash and BAM, modded system. After that I recommend getting a program called XboxHDM, which allows you to clone and create new xbox hard drives. This is the route I went and currently have an Xbox with a 120gb hdd and no chip. :)

How odd that I should semi-drunkenly stumble to this site right when your post was made!  I actually have a modded Xbox already, and it's fantastic! However, due to some recent things happening in life, my stack of back-ups is gone.  That and the Xbox didn't have the greatest library of games, at least compared to PS2 and Dreamcast.  I did recently hack my brother's Wii so I can finally - FINALLY - play Luigi's Mansion all the way through.


Also, Chupathingy, if you have extensive knowledge of the Xbox and it's mods, I'd like to you PM or e-mail or skype me so I can ask you some really, really stupid questions about it.
