Friend took it apart and cleaned it with rubbing alcohol and sand papered the contracts and we tried it on 4 different Megadrives, friend says it has extra chips and he thinks the graphical trickery extra chips are dead.. Your welcome to have it see if you can get it working?

untested and not working are the same on ebay, anything untested is presumed to be not working.

Still, he actually knows its not working.

I have listed games as untested, usually if I get Gamegear, arari lynx games etc in with some other games I list them as untested as I don't have the consoles to test them. listing something as untested when you actually know it does not work is dishonest IMO.

Plus, I have bought many games listed as untested that turned out to work fine.

So in reality you are advocating lying and trying to trick someone into spending a little extra money by giving them false hope there is a chance it may work, because thats all that is really. Its a scumbag move whichever way you want to put it.

People on here have all complained about shitty sellers in the past, and here you are encouraging it. At least it shows you are a person not to do any deals with at least.

Christmas haul. I dont ask for anything specific so family and friends look what i have and "free style"! its risky and you can end up with a load of rubbish, but it keeps Christmas exciting even in my 30s....

My xbox 360 is packing up and my misses knew it so bought me one of these
Image

most random game selection ever!
Image
(some of these were bundled with the console, hence Disneyland :oops: )

I actively collect Nintendo retro items and found these in my stocking
Image

Image :lol:

The last item was bought as ive been in the process of getting rid of almost everything retro i have that isnt Ninty for space issues. So my misses decided that an emulator would be a nice way of still being able to play the games shes forcing me to sell.

Wasn't planning on buying a second Vita, but for £94.99 from Sainsburys, I couldn't resist. :oops:

Just DLC stuff, Doom Classic Complete on PS3 (includes all add-ons/expansions etc),for just three quid that is a bargain.
The Wolf Among Us Season Pass on PS4, games they may dubiously be but I still really like the telltale stuff.
