I need a 3DO

Post by Gunstar » Thu Jul 12, 2012 2:16 am

Sorry if this is the wrong place for this, but i don't see any selling/trading/marketplace forum on site.

anyway, I was forced to sell my FZ-1 last winter when I was unemployed and desperate, and I am looking to get it back. I prefer an FZ-1, but I'd be happy with an FZ-10 too. If anyone has one of these for sale, please let me know. I don't use e-Pay anymore becuase their policies and tons of rate hikes of the last couple of years, so now I buy, sell and trade only on system forums. Since I don't see any area for that here, i've started this thread. Feel free to send me a personal message or post hear, if it's ok with the moderators.

You don't see one because this stuff isn't allowed anymore, dude.

Thank you. And I'm not a "dude." So don't get rude with me, it's not like I'm asking for something illegal. :roll:

Howsit going Gunstar? Haven't seen you here in a VERY long time. No sales area anymore amn, too much drama says 3DOKid, and he would know being the guy that runs the place. Stick around though Mate, you might get lucky through PM's from someone.
This is a stick up! Put all of your 3DO games in the bag and nobody gets hurt!

We told everyone looking to trade/buy/sell to go to Amazon/Ebay. Too much drama, arguments, theft, bull*hit.


Trading is forbidden.

As is trolling.

There are plenty of US online shops that sell 3do consoles, so you have other choices if you dont want to use ebay. You just gotta look around and see what they have in stock. Prices seem to differ pretty wildly between them, but in general around ebay prices or slightly less in my experience.. So i suggest you look at such places if you cant find what you want in a particular forum's sales subforum.

Gunstar, I'd also recommend putting a WTB thread up at AtariAge. I know you're a regular over there, and a lot of people browse that marketplace forum. You will probably get some bites there.

Apology accepted (and/or my mistake, sorry to you too), yeah, it came off as a bit rude, to me anyway.

Thanks for the advice guys. I naturally tried here first becuase it is a 3DO fan forum, after all, and since I hadn't been around for a little over a year, I didn't know about rule changes, not that I ever noticed or looked for a marketplace forum here before anyway.

@T2Kfreeker: yeah, I don't see much point in visiting sites for consoles I don't own (anymore). But I've been desperately missing my 3DO so I thought I'd come by again.

Thanks, I'll try that next since I know now we can't do that here anymore.

If I'm not mistaken isn't 3DO system buy/sell/trade allowed at the main CDI forum? (http://www.cdinteractive.co.uk/forum/)

Maybe I'm paranoid, but i see what's happening here.

Let me clarify: Trading will never come back.

which is a shame but the minority, ruined it for the majority. Between scammers, drama queens and the certifiably insane, it's just not worth the hassle and the heart-ache.

I sold a bunch of games and other stuff on eBay recently, exactly 30 items. 27 transactions were flawless. Decent people like you and I, just buying stuff.

Of the 10% remaining, 2 didn't pay which is pathetic. And one started to haggle the price after the auction ended and he had won. Tosser. So i told him clear off I wasn't selling it to him. He then accused me of being rude. I accused him of being a f**king idiot, and we left it there.

Some people are so stupid, so selfish, so self-enabled, they think it's okay.

Well not here. Sorry: No trading.
