OK, but did you buy Lost Odyssey and Operation Darkness like I said to?

I'm hunting them. They're rarer games so the prices can get stupid.

Oddly enough there are a ton of auctions for lost odyssey that only have one CD. It's a 4 CD game so it's like. . . . just CD 3 or whatever.

Meanwhile i"m staring at a copy of RDR1.

I'm like 90% sure my 360 is in a box in my garage, and I have to go to the post office next week anyway. If you want to, I can throw the power supply in a flat rate box and send it to you. Just venmo or pay pal ne the cost of shipping.

Before anything is shipped, be aware that multiple power supplies existed for different models and they werenít cross compatible.

Yeah, this is a problem for the Xbone too. I still use my 6+ year old xbone daily (it's pretty much my cable box) and I'm on the third power brick.

I mean, I'm surprised a first gen xbone has lasted this long, but I'm tired of buying 3rd party power supplies that sound like they're about to lift off the floor and hover around the room like a shithook.

I had two 360s red-ring, but they nailed it after the hdmi port addition. The optical drive eventually died. I got this xbone a few months after launch, used at gamestop. I burn through a controller a year on average from dropping (usually the shoulder buttons gently caress up from regular smacks on the ground), power supplies randomly, but the xbone itself is a goddamn unit and just takes abuse.

I never air-dusted it until a few months ago. Fucker would overheat on youtube until I did that.

I had a 360 I bought near launch that trucked along until long after I cared to use it anymore. I think I sold it at a friend's garage sale a few years ago but it never got the RRoD or anything.

Yeah, xbone is current gen. Xbone series X/S are the next gen. Not to be confused with the xbone X or S, which are just rehashes of the current generation.

Microsoft naming nomenclature is dumb as hell.

Xbox Series X/S, not Xbone series X/S. The XBone name is a shortening of XBoxOne.

I say this because apparently people are accidentally buying XBone X/S boxes right now for insane inflated prices mistakenly thinking that they're XBox Series S/X preorders.

And yeah, they need to just stick a loving number on there. Or give it a crazy name, distinctive to each generation. XBox Thunder. XBox Achilles. XBox Phoenix. XBox Manta. XBox Scorpion.

Give me a call Microsoft, those are freebies but I can do this all day.

Lol. "What if we just put a 'series' in the middle somewhere?"


Xboxes in general have been hard to find anyhow for the past six months. They dumped a bunch of production over to the Series systems and you can't find a standard xbone without substantial markup anyhow. Only the Xbone S is being produced right now, everything else is going to the Series systems.

FWIW I had a money order I sent take exactly two weeks to arrive a few months ago when I bought my CZ-52 on Gunbroker. Although that seller was a moron and apparently was going to be out of town until like a week after the auction ended and never mentioned it at all in the listing or by contacting me. He also sucked at responding to emails or answering phone calls.

I've been selling a fair bit on GB. I put down I'll accept USPS money orders or certified check, and then message the winner to ask if they'd like to pay via paypal gift. About 50% do it that way. For those that mail me payment it probably takes about 3-5 business days to arrive. Before you sell anything, make sure you have a UPS center near you that you can ship from. All you'll need to do is declare it as limited quantity and include caliber and # of rounds (UPS has folded the ORD-M category into this) and put the right marking on it (white diamond with the blacked out top and bottom, you can print it off from their site and tape it to the box). All the UPS folks I've dealt with have been super helpful. I charge a flat rate of $20 for shipping, actual cost is around $15-18 per 500 rounds 9mm.

Feel free to either PM me or ask here if you have any questions.

PM'd you.

Anyone have any tips on getting some bids? My 9mm fmj is just sitting with no bids and a watcher, even at .31 cpr with shipping. Would me being a newer user cause this? I sold three items so far and left good feedback, never got any from the buyers.

Idiot boomer gunbroker buyer update:

Gun sold on September 25th. Neither the dealer nor I have received any payment. I asked the buyer if he had heard anything from my dealer and he wrote back:

"NO I HAVE NOT???THIS IS NO WAY TO COMPLETE THE TRANSACTION??? YOU HAVE MY PHONE NUMBER???? my number is [xxx-xxx-xxxx] GEORGE"

I am absolutely not calling this guy any more because he can't just get to business; it has to be grandpa story time. Plus, I like to have a written chat log.
