Wow, even WalMart is selling these now 
https://www.walmart.com/ip/Viaboot-Raspberry-Pi-3-Gaming-Kit-PS-Style-with-Premium-Black-Case/269672532


Walmart isn't the seller.  They just list it for an "approved 3rd party vendor". 




How about this one?[https://www.ebay.com/itm/Retropi-Zero-Emulation-Kit-w-10-000-Games/142584587345

$46 shipping?  Who are they kidding?

WOW darn near 90% of the purchase price for shipping

Reminds me of the KLR manual I bought off Fleebay, manual was $0.99 Shipping $10.00. Heck $11 OK I'll bite. Seller sent me a download key for his site. I downloaded the file (PDF of the book, cheep scanned copy) but no CD in the mail. I contacted seller and demanded the CD, Seller "normally people just want the download, but I can send you the CD if you want it."  If I paid for it you have two choices SEND ME THE CD or refund me the $$$. I got the CD in the mail a month later.
Anyone need the manual for a late model KLR can send it on for cost of postage (never used) :bigsmile:

Seems fleebay bases their fees on the selling price, sellers count on shipping as a "non taxed" profit.
Freedom without regulations that protect the general good is nothing less than anarchy by the rich.

Anybody need a PS2?  My wife just notified me we are selling my old one.   :lol:  It'd be a much better deal for STO folks:

I have a PS2 also that I'd let go for $10.00 and 3 PS3s  that I'd let go for $25 each. Each PS3 comes with 1 controller. I have extra PS3 controllers that I'd let go cheap too. All items are in perfect condition.

No games.

PM if interested.

Thanks

Yep- a bit pricey, but it sure would be fun to have all the classics like that!

Too bad you're not nearby. Would trade coffee for controllers.

One of the PS3s is a Gen1 60GB which plays PS1 & PS2 games as well.
