    "Why Standard VHS VCRs Don't Have S-Video Connections

    The reason that standard VHS VCRs don't have S-Video connections, is that it is felt by manufacturers that the extra cost really doesn't yield enough benefit to standard VHS playback or recording to make it worth it for the consumer, especially since basic S-VHS VCRs aren't that much more expensive nowadays."

    In short: Cheap-assed manufacturers don't want to spend pennies to add the proper parts.

    Now, I do remember seeing some S-Video VHS decks at Wal-Mart a while ago, but they wanted $80 for a VHS / DVD combo deck back then.

Then recently I just bought a complete copy of DBZ: Shin Butouden 1 for $5. I think the market has slowed down on DBZ stuff as of late. We need either a new animated series or live action movie(long rumored) to bring things back up.

    Pictured is most of the new stuff, acquired from the Book & Music Exchange in Owensboro, KY (conveniently located within walking distance of Waffle House).

    MDK - $7
    The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (widescreen) - another $7
    Tomb Raider Anniversary (Wii, complete) - $25 (pretty much even with Amazon, minus the having to wait)
    Devil Kings (PS2, complete) - $15 (again, even with Amazon and no waiting) not a bad game, though I wish Puff came with a mute button. not in the picture due to laziness.

    Terry Pratchett's Discworld (PS1, complete, even with foam. ooh, ahh.) - $10
    Legend of Mana strategy guide - $5

    Book & Music Exchange, Henderson, KY -

    Megaman Legends (non-GH, complete. disc in much better shape than the case) - $8
    Megaman Legends 2 (did this have a GH?) - $15
    Earthbound (cart only) - still there because I'm not paying $50 for it

    I found one of those Contra NFR carts in the wild around a year ago. It should net you around $50 if you were going to sell it.

    I dunno yet. I'm going to list it at ten bucks and see how much it sells for.

    Mega Man 6 cart
    Mega Man X cart
    Microsoft Plus Digital Media Edition (DVD + case)
    Microsoft Student 2006 (DVD + case)

    Ya gotta love penny guides. I'm banned from circuit city because I got 80+ over the course of two trips though, and they think I'm a suspiscious customer. >_<

    Kitsune, when getting those MS programs to sell, do they need to be new or will you be able to sell the used ones? I'm not sure if you can use it more than once or not...

    Of course you can use them more than once. Jeez, they're not using SecuROM. :P You can activate them over the internet, but if you can't, you can call Microsoft, give 'em the number on the screen, and they'll activate them for you.

    I might - I've been trying to get Discworld 2 (US PS1) for a while now - I could possibly trade it for something I could help a friend out with. Got a list? PM me.

    Yeah, though most BB are good about pulling them. They aren't actually supposed to sell them, but for some reason they dropped the ball this month. I left a ton there that I might go back for.
