new Thread Description
This thread was originally created to encourage traders here at GTZ to do more trading, especially retro related stuff. It has turned into a lot more and I am so grateful to everyone who contributed to this thread and have kept it going for nearly 6 months now. I hope this thread will continue to thrive and everyone who reads/participates in this thread will gain some value or knowledge out of it.

We will still have Trade lists up here, though it's been a while since anyone updated. I encourage everyone to look over their lists and post updates.
There is also a section for gorgeous pictures of game rooms that active participants of this thread have shared. Feel free to share some pics of your collection or game room.
I will be adding another section for information regarding video quality of retro gaming systems on modern displays and how to improve them.
There is rather some extensive discussion regarding how to improve the display quality of retro gaming systems and if you are new to this like I am, you will find it very informative.

Old Topic Description


GTZ has become a marketplace where the most commonly traded commodity is PayPal. I want to start an effort to get some trades going and to discuss some good games perhaps you never heard of or interested in but want to discover/know more of. For example, I just got intto shmups after years of ignoring the genre and I love to discover new(to me) and rediscover old ones(Sonic Wings comes to mind).

No pressure here. Feel free to discuss anything retro. Perhaps throw out some WTTF targets and what you have to offer. I am sick of browsing people's year old Available lists.

Some examples:

- WTTF/WTB/LF
- What you think is awesome game/series/whatever
- Potential games you have up for trade
- Pics of what you have/what you would love to get/what you think is the bestest awesomest game ever
- Show off your latest finds/adds to your collection

@DefaultGen It still has more physical releases than PS3 and I would think the PS3 has been catching up nicely for awhile now.

Catching up to what?

I went through and bought every Wii game I didn't have that wasn't sports, licensed, or a minigame collection, which weeds out like 95% of Wii games.

The amount of games released. I would assume the PS3 is seeing more releases than the Wii at this point... For now the Wii is still ahead though.

I didn't even realize PS3 was getting games still.

I don't really pay attention to most modern releases. I would've figured new Xboxes and Playstations completely supplanted the old consoles by now. Hell, they both already have "1.5" revisions now.

No worries dave, felt sad getting rid of the old thing it was like my shmup machine - not a lot of digital content for me on 360 so it's served me well. Offer stands if you change your mind :)
Appreciate it. yes Thanks for checking on it for me, I wasn't expecting to find big E-models this inexpensive frankly

Told ya! Honestly for $70 some shipped, you prob got like 10 games and 2 controllers?

After shipping and fees, seller is netting what $40?

Xbox 360 has been hard to sell for more than couple years now.

Nah, the only good bundles like that for a 500gb unit still run about $145, even though the games are severely worth less. Biggest reason I didn't go with that.

System and controller for $70 after shipping though, I'm all over that.

If you need extra controller, play n charge, or a few cheapos, LMK

I don't think so. Is checkout failing? I had to check out in small groups since I'd get an error if I checked out with my full cart.

Yeah. I knew a local store did some promos so I checked their facebook. Last sale on 360s (and they don't even take in old models) was $50 for the system with hooks + controller and three free games of your choosing from a selection of titles.
