I just received the items from this auction on the Bay of Evil, and unless I'm missing something, I feel like I got a great deal: sealed copies of The Incredible Machine, StarBlade, Stellar 7, Twisted (demo version?), and Pebble Beach NFR, all for $16.97 shipped.

They're all in beautiful condition! I already have a longbox of Stellar 7 and a jewel case StarBlade, but I'll just send those to my brother. BTW the same seller has an identical lot up, so it must be that he has a bunch of these.

Maybe I should make a submission to the "sealed games contents" thread? :D I also have a sealed Immercenary I've been thinking of opening.

Looks like a very nice catch, particularly at that price, even if the vast majority of the items I know by reputation only.

Definitely! I at least now won't feel guilty about opening mine... when I can get to them that is.

Picked this up on eBay the other day and had never seen it before so thought I'd add it to my collection. It's Jikki Pachi-Slot Simulator Vol. 1 (FZ-SJ1667). Anyone got any info on the rarity of this please?

i didn't purchase it - but I noticed a complete Korean copy of Crash n Burn sold for $199 on ebay recently. I think that's a crazy price!

Scored a complete-in-box copy of Immercenary for $15. I'm looking forward to getting a look at exactly what the deal is with this oft-debated game.

I havent made a 3DO purchase in awhile. I've been looking for a longbox BC Racers. I actually think it's a great game. Anyways, If you know a retailer or someone who has one, let me know.

I landed me a disc-only copy of Deathkeep, to go with the manual I already have. It came at a nice single digit figure, including shipping. :D

Being the dungeon crawling fan I am, I eagerly look forward to trying it out.

How do the other versions play? The 3DO port is total garbage, so I might be willing to trade with you ... I only keep it as a collector. PM me if you are interested.

At least in terms of the Sega CD version, it plays better, especially splitscreen. The 32X one isn't all that hot though.

Another tough one to track down, especially in its Long Box. Managed to source this one here in the UK and for a single figure price (with postage), bargain!

Bought a Sanyo 3DO for $30.

Unknown condition, no controller (bought a Sanyo controller separately for $20).

Although this sounds like the deal of the century... The bad news is that it must ship from Japan - so the set will probably be around $80 - $100 with shipping when everything is sorted.

So $120? Sounds decent enough to me! :)

Just got the invoice, the ~$50 worth of stuff will total ~$104 with shipping to the broker's US warehouse and broker fees. So it'll be another $12 or $15 in domestic shipping to get to me once it's stateside. ~$120. For this much, I hope it is in good condition/works! I took a little bit of a chance on this, as the Japanese listing was just a barebones description ("sanyo 3do console only, no box, no hookups or accessories") with no pics :oops:

I finally got my 3DO game gun. Picked one up for $80. I have a question for some of you experts. I found a shop that specializes in vintage video games. They had a brand new still in the box 3DO mouse for only $30! I have no interest in owning the 3DO mouse, but would that be something I could pick up and flip for a good profit?

The mouse is an ultra-rarity for sure. However, I don't know if there's enough demand for it that you could easily turn a profit on reselling it. This recent Ebay auction of a 3DO mouse had a starting price of 20 US dollars and ended with no bids.

Yeah, you won't be able to flip it for profit at that price, but it is a cool accessory to have. I'd buy one NIB for $30.

I wish more games took advantage of it though. Thankfully Lemmings does, at least!

I agree! Lemmings on the 3DO is torture w/o the mouse.

Speaking of the mouse, I did some searching and no one on the forum's really talked much about Syndicate on the 3DO. I imagine that game is annoying without a mouse. Or is it? Does it even support the mouse? Hrm.

I played it just fine without the mouse. You need to learn all the controller shortcuts though. This was one of the original games I bought for my 3DO. I think it was Software Etc. :P

Not a recent purchase but here's a photo of my 3DO 'Bum Bag' which I realise I hadn't uploaded here yet. Anyone else got one of these? I bought it on eBay from a guy here in the UK who said he used to work for the 3DO promo team. I asked him if he had anything else to which he replied he probably did but it was all in the loft, he said he'd get back to me but never did.

I've managed to secure a few other interesting items that are on their way over the from the US and Italy, will post pictures when they arrive :)

Also, I thought Syndicate on the 3DO doesn't support the mouse? I know it wasn't mentioned in any of the threads listing 3DO mouse-supposed games.
