    Is this considered a collector’s item? I don’t understand the appeal of getting an outdated system.

    It’s not worth a few hundred to me, but I’d be down to find a ps3 with COD4:MW just for the relative nostalgia of freshman dorm life.

    Also a few $1900-2000 results on google shopping for this bundle.

    That’s why I asked if it was a collector’s item. As far as the COD you can play it on PS4

    Why would someone sell this at ~70% of what they could sell it for at weight?

    I mean, I'm glad they did, I just don't get it.

    there are no refineries in Tallahassee. Get cash immediately. Unless you can find someone to sell it to on craigslist or facebook marketplace which wouldnt be a wise move cause you could easily be robbed.

    How often do you have to deal with people upset over what you're offering to give them? I used to work in what was essentially a pawn shop (except we didn't do the pawn thing), and would regularly deal with irate customers yelling about how they saw whatever on eBay for X price and we're not offering near that (or that we were selling that Xbox for twice what we were offering). Of course most of these were usually white trash who thought their Barbie or NASCAR collection would be worth something.

    I have a ps4 CoD edition that I never took out of the box. Not as a collectors item, just decided I wasn’t into gaming anymore.

    Not that often. We tell them thats what someone is trying to sell that Item for not what it's actually sold for or there's an actual difference in the two items and thats why itsnot worth what they thought it was. We calmly explain its worth around X and we'll give you Y. If you want X try craigslist or faacebook marketplace. The biggest one is normally with engagement rings. People pay ridiculous mark ups on jewelry because there are so many middlemen in that process and a jewelers time to make something isnt cheap and for the most part I'm just paying for the metal and stones to be sold to a refinery and a wholesale diamond buyer. If I know it'll go in my case I'll pay more than what my diamond buyer will pay. Also people that want thousands for a ring with no paperwork good luck. We'll also recommend a site like idonowidont.com if they want to give that a try.

    Our clientele wasn't exactly the brightest. We didn't deal in jewelry outside of pop culture stuff or smart watches just because we didn't have the knowledge base to verify most of that stuff and we prided ourselves on quick processing when people would bring stuff to sell so spending 30 minutes-hour trying to validate and price something wouldn't have flown with our owner.

    I bought it right before I moved from Phoenix to Atlanta and just never hooked it up.

    It wasn’t like an immediate decision that I wasn’t going to play video games and I’d rather have it in case I ever get the itch then whatever it’s worth at resale.

    An unopened copy of Mario 64 recently sold for over $1.5 million.

    I had a first edition of final fantasy 7 that had misprint on back and sold it for it for about $250 a few years ago and it's worth thousands unopened.

    90s nostalgia has blown up the past few years.

    1878 SILVER MORGAN CC $200. CC is the mint mark which is Carson City. Anything from here is worth more than any other mint cause they weren’t open very long

    I'll take a look at at it Saturday. but I have no worries about it being authentic. There was a Philly 1986 with it that was perfect with it.

    Oh I’m not discrediting it, just weird that the CC is at like a 10° angle from being straight/square.
