    It's a PC Engine with an AV booster added on the back. Look at all that dust!

    It may just need a cleaning, but what a shame it is to see this in that kind of condition.

    **Note** The price is a little bit up there as a cheaper(cleaner) one should be easily found. I don't think the Jackie Chan's that rare.

    An AV booster allows you to use a composite connection (Yellow video plug, white audio plug) as opposed to the RF/Coax connection.

    Sacramento, CA must be going through a wipe drought. This guy didn't care about the system whatsoever.

    I'd buy it for a dollar though (need the parts).

    It could've definately used some "Mr. Sparkle". Damn crap on it needed to be banished to the land of wind and ghosts.

    Ignoring the Super NES's video chip, at least as much...the SNES has a gimped main processor after all.

    And yes, during the time of the original Nintendo (the PC-Engine was released way back in 1986, I think, certainly '87). =)

    I tried storing my loose Hu Cards in a card sleeved binder awhile back and its not a great idea, they fall out so easy and the cards are so fat (compared to the regular size of collectable cards) you cant store a whole lot of them.

    nice offer, but honestly, the exorbitant amount of superficial dirt is a complete way to make any game collector shudder.

    I'd buy it for $2.88, not $288.

    Maybe he is charging extra for the excessive grime on it.

    Possibility is infinity! You must be satisfied!

    I think the text in the OP should have been:

    OMG!!! GAMESTOP IS THROWING AWAY ALL THEIR TURBO GRAFX\PC ENGINE STUFF!!!!! MY FRIEND AND I FOUND THIS IN THEIR DUMPSTER!!!
    If a god is willing to prevent evil, but not able, then he is not omnipotent. If he is able, but not willing, then he must be malevolent. If he is both willing and able, then why is there evil? If he is neither able or willing then why call him a god?

    One RARE game is a late 1980's Jackie Chan Game that has the story of his current Movie Forbidden Kingdom.
    SOLD!!!

    Nevermind that the "airplane games" are probably amongst the most valuable stuff in there...still, gotta give 'em props for tryin'.

    Yup. It's nice to have big dreams.

    I've used baseball card pages, in conjunction with deck protectors sleeves for Yu-Gi-Oh sized cards. Put the Hu-card into the sleeve connectors toward the bottom, then put the sleeves into the pages so the label faces the right way. They don't fall out anyway.

    In the condition it's in, he'll be lucky to get $8.

    And talk about delusional... "Alrighty Folks, This may be the BEST FIND for Video Games on EBAY for a while. This Gaming System dates back 1987, back when NINTENDO Super Mario Brother's 1 first came out (around that time). "

    You're off by 2 years, pal.

    Are you sure that's dust, and that it hasn't been sat at the bottom of a cat litter tray for the past 10 years?
