went to a garage sale and got all these ps1 games for $3 and the ps2 games for $5
some of them are decent. bought everything that wasn’t a sporting game. haven’t tested any of them yet, they’re all a bit scratched but will hopefully work ok. The VHS tapes were free off the side of the road somewhere… they had lots of others but I didn’t want to be greedy. The Ninja turtles movie is really hard to find on DVD.
Most of the Cash Converters stores I frequent have been pretty boring lately, haven’t picked up this many rare games cheap in ages (I think the last decent haul was Castlevania + Abe’s Oddysee for $8 each early this year and or Tomb Raider 1 and Legacy of Kain for $3 each from another store, though those aren’t as valuable.
Anyway today I got what is probably the best bargain I will ever get in terms of PS1 games, Final Fantasy VI, VII, VIII and IX all for $10 each.
FFVI is a 2002 release that comes with the PS1 version of the 1994 SNES game + PS2 game demo of Final Fantasy X. A copy of this recently sold for $57 AUS + Postage, except it included the manual, mine is missing its manual.
FFVII is a platinum version that comes with all 4 discs (3 for the game, 1 is a demo of FF8) and the manual and appears to have been previously sold to an EB games store. The original version of this game has been selling for $70ish on Australian Ebay.
FFVIII is the original version of the game, comes with all 4 discs but is missing the manual, there is a big crack on the front and back of the case. This has been selling for $60-$90 on Australian Ebay lately.
FFIX is the original version of the game, comes with all 4 discs but is missing the manual as well. It has a small crack on the back and front of the case. This has been selling for $about $90 on ebay lately as well.
So overall this was a very good haul for me, four good quality games, which appear to be in reasonable conditon (a little scratched but hopefully play fine) for the price of one or less.
I’ve actually been watching a copy of FF7, platinum on ebay for the past few days which ends tonight, was going to bid on it if it was going cheap, but I guess I won’t have to now.
