Sweet Electronics Recycling find ! But will they work?

Was stunned to find these but they sat for hours in sub zero temps so I waited for them to warm up. My usual ramble, feel free to forward to about 4 min 50 sec to see what I found. I hook them up, cross my fingers and ....well check it out. While you are at it be sure to check out the channels I mentioned as well!

Happy to finally post a new video! 😮😃😎🍻

To my amazement a few weeks ago I found a boxed gaming console someone disposed of in our Electronics Recycling Bin! It was even one I didn't have!

Watch to see everything included and hear whether or not it works.

WOW congrats on a great find @MaximumRD!!!

Thanks, I got imessage and facetime going on it (they say not activated but runs fine 😛 ) this will be good because end of May we are going to Nashville for a week, business trip Melissa only accepted because they agreed I could go along lol, so during day she will go to conference and I will hang at resort and surrounding areas (going to check out the Dukes of Hazard Museum) so this should come in handy instead of dragging the iPad around.

😂🤔New quick video ! Looking through some loose NES cartridges I noticed this name written on with permanent marker, so being late at night I thought I would upload this quick little video asking "Did YOU ever write your name on your cartridges?" - As collectors we often come across them, often research how to remove them but I did make me think about how people did this, sometimes it was kids who did not know better and would mark everything they owned in some fashion, maybe because we did not think of decreasing value or ever parting with our precious games? I sometimes wonder about the people who owned them previously, why they sold or traded them etc. 😎🍻

I was just there about a month and a half ago! My room key and arcade card were still in my wallet, lol (The games don't take cash, you had to use a card you load up. And the games were about $1-$2 per play)

It's definitely small and hidden, easy to miss. But wow, they already changed it up a bit! When I went, they had no ticket games or redemption kiosk. They also had a couple more arcade games: Pac Man Battle Royale & a modern Terminator light gun game. My wife and I tried the Typhoon ride, but it was so jittery, we stopped it before it finished. Not much fun, at least the one we picked (a paper airplane I think), but at least they give you the option to stop in the middle (no refund of course). My wallet actually fell out of my pocket during the ride and I had to go back to find it after we left. My son just had to try those "win an expensive prize with one play" games. I tried to talk him out of it, but he learned the hard way that they are near impossible to win. 

Oh, and Cooters is one of the best places to visit in the area! They also have a nice mall nearby (no arcade though iirc). It has a wax museum that I wanted to visit, but we didn't have the time. It's probably one of the healthiest malls around these days.

Cooters was awesome! Better than I expected, planning to upload a video about it once we return home. Checking out the mall tommorrow, highlights have been downtown, Fleet street brirish pub, Woolworth on 5th (location of historic sit in by black college students for civil rights) and BB kings blues club! LOVED NASHVILLE and was my personal first exposure to southern hospitality. Sadly our week is up soon and we leave early Sat morning to head back home.
