    Maybe it's a sign of things to come. Quick! Buy 2 before they double in price again!

    Dear god, no. I was just confused at how anyone could consider listing it for that price. You see those going for $170 - 200 all day.

    This was mostly posted for the "lol" factor.

    There alot of unscrupulous sellers on eBay and Amazon. Thing is overpricing a item is not against either site's policy.
    So always do your homework, compare the sale to other sales, including those which has sold.

    Odd thing is I don't see how this clown jackswarehouse2010 sold 4 Hori hrap V4 arcade sticks at US $1,189.75
    Some people must be desperate for a PS4 stick. Listen people if you are this desperate just contact Gummo, I am sure he do the mod for you.

    If you would have clicked on the Purchase History link you would have seen the seller just made a typo updating his listing. But who am I to stop the tech talk spergouts.

    What Typo?

    Adding a extra 1 in front of the price?

    That has to be a typo when all the others sold for 189.75

    Pretty funny typo though

    Here is a great deal for N64 replacement Expansion Pak cover and bottom port cover
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Official-Nintendo-64-Expansion-Jumper-Pak-Cover-Lid-Bottom-Cap-Nintendo-DD-/161266553831?pt=US_Video_Gaming_Replacement_Parts_Tools

    Just $3 plus standard shipping, looks like this seller takes the time to clean each and every part before it leaves their shop. The port and expansion covers I got smelled great from what ever they used to clean it.
    He also has a Watermelon Red N64 at a decent price.

    From another seller I got one of these
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/131388792217

    A Japanese Two-Toned Ice Blue N64, that I going to later do a RGB mod on.
    And encase your wondering the covers aren't for the Blue N64, its for a grey N64 I just swap the motherboard out of. I want to make sure this second ordinary dark grey N64 has all it's pieces before I sell or trade it off.

    Also if anyone is interested, there this Smoke Grey N64 http://www.ebay.com/itm/Nintendo-64-Funtastic-Smoke-Grey-Console-ITS-SO-BEAUTIFUL-AND-CLEAR-/251745705437
    $59.99 US is a really good price. Its just the basic console only and its missing the expansion and port covers but this thing normally goes for $80.

    I finally found a remote for a XRGB-2 PLUS. The only acessory for my XRGB-2 PLUS I was really missing on.
    I was the only bidder on eBay.http://www.ebay.com/itm/Micomsoft-XRGB-2-PLUS-Up-Scan-Converter-Remote-Control-Japan-0125A25-/391048072119?

    Paid $16 plus another $6.50 for shipping (registered air mail with tracking and insurance)

    Well technically I am still missing the D terminal to RCA connection breakout for Component video
    and the Japan 21 Pin (their version of "scart") break out connector adapter.
    But I can get those easily if I ever need them.

    NICE FIND!!!

    Take it easy on those tiny XRGB remote cards and keep them away from heat/direct sunlight, the plastic on the face on those can get very brittle.

    P.S. If you know of someone who makes good Japanese RGB cables I'd like to get some too for SNES, Genesis 1st Gen, Genesis CDX, and Saturn!!!

    I know of two really good sources
    1. http://www.retrogamingcables.com (they also have a eBay store) makes custom system RGB cables, both Euro Scart and JPN 21 configurations Located in the UK.
    2. Retro console accessories Their eBay store http://www.ebay.com/usr/retro_console_accessories?_trksid=p2053788.m1543.l2754 they also make custom RGB cables Located in the US in Florida.

    Most of my cabling are Euro Scart, after my Scart system selector box the cable goes to an adapter for my XRGB 2 Plus.
    I stick to mostly Euro Scart as their easier to find and my Switch box is a British Bandridge brand Euro Scart switch Box (manual version).

    Dude closed his thread before I could give him props, so I'm gonna throw him some shine in TT.

    Like new (read brand f'ing new but open box) Japroc Torii White Fightstick.

    Sweetheart price which we settled with some parts and some cash.

    Got the stick the other day. Good pack job, item arrived as described, and I appreciate how easy he was to deal with over instant message.

    Thanks @slaycruz !!!

    Got a mint PS3 Femme Fatale in box (no manual/instructions tho) for $200.

    Do these guys on eBay selling them for $500 actually have people that pay that?

    They are rare collector item versions of the TE. Saw a very limited release,

    In other news

    I did see this today
    http://www.gamestop.com/nintendo-3ds/consoles/nintendo-new-3ds-xl-black-starter-bundle/120360

    Nintendo NEW 3DS XL - Black Starter Bundle
    Its the NEW 3DS XL (black) , Legend of Zelda Majoras Mask and Smash Bros 3DS

    There also Nintendo NEW 3DS XL - Red Starter Bundle
    Comes with Legend of Zelda Majoras Mask and Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate

    both comes with a eGuide for Majoras Mask.

    I think Gamestop out of the Black starter set

    If it were mint in box, maybe. Otherwise I'd say it's a $20 item. It's not a piece of poo, but it's not that exciting either. I own 2, more for novelty than than because they are great sticks.

    There's been a few diff Tekken ones being posted near me, one as low as $35 brand new in box w/ Tekken and everything. He txt'd me back today but from searching doesn't look like it's that great for modding.

    How is the SCV one? I like that it's not viewlix.

    There's also a cheap 6 button SCIV one near me.

    Was considering buying them to keep at my office if they're easy to mod. baby steps, eventually I hope they'll agree to letting me get a candy cab... =)

    HORI SCV

    Full Sanwa, good size for folks with big hands, can rest my wrist comfortably on the stick with out hitting the bottom edge, I like this button layout too.

    Nice features: Start button cover, Switch to turn the stick from 8 to 6 button, Storage area for cord very spacious.

    Gonna see if its deep enough for Sanwa OBSN-30RG's or OBS-30B's soon.

    HRAP T5

    @BartStation sold me a Hori Tekken 10th Anniversary stick last year for $40, I'd probably rate it a B- unmodded to play on, button layout is great for KOF games.

    Tough part about modding it is that the buttons are soldered to an extra PCB vs. have quick disconnects and the joystick mount is for old hori factory sticks not for JLF's.

    If you can get one cheap enough that you still have money leftover to get a custom panel from @arthong , and know how to desolder the buttons you should fine.

    Received the ff today, it doesn't look like it's ever been used. Box is pristine too. #203

    can't believe I got this for $200.

    damn I really want to play on it. maybe I'll have to do what @hibachifinal did and make a ghetto FF.

    The power stick is worth around 50 only if it comes with complete with box and BOTH cables. The sega power stick is worth slightly more but its hard to find that one with a box This one came with a jlw instead of the american jlf.Thanks for the shout out @Feargus001100. Hows the comic con emp stick doing?

    thats about the right price for that stick missing instructions. nobody pays 500 for a stick unless its a b15sdm. or maybe a hrap se.

    It actually did end up coming with instructions and even the original receipt from 2009, despite what it said in the item description

    Edit:I realize that wasnt your point, I agree with you. Just I've even seen people on here selling the chun (which is less rare from what I understand) for over 2x the original retail price.

    oh, I didn't mention, I got it off Amazon while trying to find pics of the FF artwork. The other listing was for 600 or something

    There no such thing as an American JLF (although at one time Sanwa and Happ shared items on their part catalogs).

    Capcom Power stick came with either a Sanwa JLW variant or a what looks like a Seimitsu LS-40 variant. I never seen a 3rd joystick in a Capcom power stick (does not mean one doesn't exist).

    Picked up a Chun Li TE for criminal prices today. The box is pretty worn/tearing, but the stick itself is in great shape.
