Does anyone out there frequent Hard Off or Hobby Off? Ever notice that the people who work there are absolute morons?
They take stuff that they can't identify and then wrap tape and stickers all over it.
They take working stuff they think has no value and put stickers and tape all over it.
They take boxed systems they think no one wants and then make sure of it by engulfing it in tape:dammit:
A PCFX that was nice and minty, complete in the box. They assumed no one wanted it, so the SEALED THE ENTIRE BOX IN CLEAR PACKING TAPE:DOH:
I just bought a Neo Geo CD in the box from one for 500 yen... why so cheap? Did it not work? No... it worked fine... they just decided to bundle the power supply with another system so without a power supply, it became 500 yen junk. Even though they had a loose power supply for 850 yen on their shelf they could have thrown in with it.
I swear, I'm delighted at some of the things I find there, but the disrespect they show obscure and retro systems really steams me:evil:
I'll get off my soapbox now.
