Deals and Steals


Recommended Posts

Thought I'd start a thread on good deals available at retail stores to share with the group.


This first one is at Bed, Bath, and Beyond (in the "Beyond" section :))  As after-Christmas sales, they have the mini-arcade LCD arcade games 30% off...$13.99 AND you can use a 20% off coupon for an additional $2.80 off (final price = $11.19)  I already had the Pac Man, so I bought the Space Invaders. 


They also have the Mattel Electronics repro handheld games.  These versions have special sound effects.  They are 50% off...$7.49, and use a 20% off coupon for an additional $1.50 off (final price = $5.99).  I got football as a gift, so I bought basketball and baseball.

I'll post pics later, but I managed to snag a text label copy of Indy 500 and two driving controllers from Disc Traders last night for 7 bucks! I've been looking for a set for 10 bucks or under, but the going rate on eBay seems to be 20 dollars or so. I had this game as a kid and I loved it! Very happy to have it back in my collection.


Also got a copy of Venture for Intellivision for 2 bucks! 


Edit: Pics as promised!

GREAT deals right there.

They have another one at their other store where I got the driving controllers, boxed Intellivoice with loose copies and overlays of B17, Bomb Squad, and Space Spartans for 25. Almost went for that one but I'm glad I didn't. I've got overlays from my Flashback I can use so I'm set there, and I'm not a boxed collector so that wasn't a big deal. I'm sure I'll snag a copy of Space Spartans at some point for cheap.

Interesting thing... I tried running the 32x with the Genesis it was bundled with, and I couldn’t get it to work. The games would start to load, then glitch with some horizontal bars in the video and a buzzing sound. I tried it with my newer model 1 Genesis (mine doesn’t have the High Definition Graphics written at the top of the console), and it worked like a charm! I need to do further testing of that model 1 to make sure it doesn’t have deeper issues.


Finally have a 32x in my collection, along with a spare model 1 Genesis! Now I just need some 32x games... I have a copy of Star Wars Arcade on the way, and I’ll probably snag some others over the coming months.
