My area usually isn't any good for game hunting but I had some good hauls a year ago. Lately, there's been nothing, not even good listings that I miss out on, just nothing. Finally last night I see a good listing go up, nothing crazy, but there's a Wii U SMB 3D World bundle in box with a bunch of Wii U games, a loose Wii with some Wii games, a Wii U Pro Controller, and an Xbox 360 loose with two controllers and a bunch of Xbox games. Asking $225. I'm excited because altogether it's a good price for everything but also there's a copy of Dokapon Kingdom in one of the Wii piles. Plus the Wii / Wii U games have some other decent titles, nothing as valuable but a good lot still. It's farther than I would usually travel, 30 minutes one way driving for me, but for the first good haul in a while and picking up some Wii / Wii U titles for my collection plus the Wii U Pro Controller, and flipping the rest to make my money back including the Dokapon Kingdom being a quick sale, I'm down. I tell the guy I can do $200 and pick up tomorrow (now today), we agree, cool, he sends me some messages later that night about "I've been getting a lot of messages blah blah" but I don't bite. But I know where this is going. I wake up this morning and decide to check the listing again. What's this? Really? Shocking! Some of the photos are missing. I message him asking what happened, did some of the pictures disappear? Are some of the Wii and Wii U games not available anymore? He asks me which ones I wanted, I say "I'm pretty sure there was another Just Dance game in there and Dokapon Kingdom," he doesn't respond for a while and then makes an excuse about how he took the pictures wrong, he didn't mean to include that pile, he will have to make another listing. I ended up messaging him on the new listing asking a few more questions, he makes another unprompted excuse about "my girlfriend took those games, they will be sold separately," ok dude. If I had to guess I would say someone offered to buy just Dokapon Kingdom and he went for it and maybe was hoping I wouldn't notice. His asking price for the new listing is $199, I could probably do $150 and take it but at this point it's not worth it. I'm passing out of principle. I'm just annoyed and wanted to vent. I don't get why people don't realize that if you have a big pile of stuff to sell, and then you part out the good items and sell them separately, you are going to end up stuck with a big pile of undesirable stuff that no one will want to buy off you. Hate this zip code sometimes. I get better hauls online, which is sad. OK rant over Edited December 3, 2019 by MiamiSlice 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
