hilarious value
I am about to tell you something that will blow your mind with laughter and you will not believe it's funny til I get to the punch line. in fact you'll be wondering why i say this is funny but stick with me. I tried to look up the value of the resale of a Dream cast today and I found that some one on amazon was selling new ones for $300{if OI remember right.} and there were some used ones for $13.50. now I was curious to figure out what was the difference between a new and used system would be because I have a dream cast that functions like it was brand new. so i asked someone and would you believe what they told me.


"it's because they still have the original box."

no kidding you the three dollars worth of card board that rapped the system originally actually makes the system worth about three hundred dollars. now I know what your saying that's the way things go buy you try to pull that one at your local play and trade and see if this makes any since. basically try to sell the m the original box for a dream cast for three hundred dollars. they'd laugh you out of the store and probably rightfully so. it's the game system that as the value. sp whats the fuse about the box. I mean my dream cast works like you just bought it.{well I have never played any games on it but that from not a lack of trying to afford them.} so what do you guys think hilarious or not.

That's not really.funny. It's collecters condition rates.
Also with the dreamcast its used little.memory cards that were poorly designed. They had an internal battery and when that died they no longer worked. I don't remember what they were called but a quick google will pull it up for you if you're interested.

Those memory cards are pretty rare now from what I hear. My buddy is a videogame collector and he has nearly every system made as well as almost all of the.more popular games. Thing is he's also frugal which means he spends a lot of time waiting and searching for just the right deal. Which is why he still lacks earthbound. Shits crazy expensive.

The VMUs batteries were weak, yes.. but relatively easy to replace, and if they died - the memory cards kept working just fine. The battery was to use the card itself as a portable game system. albeit a very low power one, still.. it was very good for it's time. Plus, it worked as a low res monochrome screen while playing, sort of like the atari 2600 version of a Wii U.

I wasn't going to reply but that last part made me laugh.

I find it more ironic than funny.
