Pretty Nice Craigslist score.

Post by MrAshDarksideTM » Thu Apr 07, 2011 5:21 am

As a few of you know my 3DO died last year and due to unemployment at the time I was unable to replace it. Since being back in a job I've had my eyes on CL every now and then. Today I found this for $100 o.O

Feels good to be back in the saddle again.

Pretty good score in my opinion. :twisted: :D

Please don't stretch native 4:3 games to non-native 16:9. It makes me sad. :(

It actually bothers me too. I just took that shot when I first fired it up to make sure everything was working. The TV goes to 16:9 by default as I hadn't used Svideo in quite awhile.

agree. It drives me mad when i go to someone's house and their tv is stretching 4:3 to 16:9. but what gets me even more is when a station is doing that to their own programing... :evil: :evil: :evil:

So, you're the one that bought that lot. I replied to him first and the guy originally promised the lot to me, but then sold it to you. What a great deal, and I had offered him more too. Strange he did that, but congrats anyway.

I had a 3DO back in 1994. I just recently purchased one again and am trying to build my collection.
