I posted a lot of cheap BINs a couple of days ago, and got some great feedback. If I find stuff worthy of it, I may start making a similar post at least once a week.
In this case, eBay featured this auction, on its deal of the day section. Two original sealed XBOX games, Jade Empire and Kingdom Under Fire Heroes. The former I though was pretty decent and I’m never heard of the second.
Total is $5.00, with free shipping to the US. Not a bad deal. Seller must be sitting on a TON of these, so the future value will probably be iffy.
I’m looking for nice NEW stuff that’s cheap, but I’m not getting a ton. Loads of crappy sealed games for under $5.00 shipped though, so we’ll try that for now. I will avoid the sports titles though and anything really horrible (I used that term loosely). All are new and sealed. Most have multiple copies.

Nothing spectacular, but some possible buys there given the prices. For reference I’m grabbing the XBOX combo, N64 Perfect Dark, VIP GBA, NSYNC GBA and Rock Revolution DS. The later had abysimal sales, so assuming all the unsold stock goes missing in a warehouse somewhere, it could be worth something in a decade or two.
PS1 stuff is tempting, but given the flood of sealed games under $20 for the system, I feel I’d only be inviting myself to a new collecting hobby that I don’t want to have.
