    How much did you pay for it? I'm just curious, and don't have any clue what it's worth.

    Quick answer. It is worth what you paid for it since you are apparently a collector of Gameboy stuff and are not looking to resell it.

    Id like to think i did. You can change the games in it to so that is honestly what sold it for me. Anyone that is going to www.screwattack.com s gaming convention this summer will get to play it as it will be on display near the ghostbusters car.

    That's awesome. Not $4000 awesome, but still pretty cool.

    Looks pretty clean. I've seen a couple sell on both Craigslist and via private collector sales within the past year for a few hundred dollars in similar condition. Not sure why you won't tell people what you paid as one of the ways we all answer these questions is by tracking sale prices over the years and this would be another data point.

    I saw one of these selling for $50 on Ebay a few years back. I didn't realize it was such a big deal other wise I would have bought it.

    Looks cool and unique. I'd say it's whatever you want to invest in it. Also, do you perhaps have pics of other games running on it?

    As long as you're happy, that's all that matters, but I can tell you that I have been offered one of these new in the box for around $1,000 and obviously I am aware of at least two others in very nice condition that sold in the $300-$400 range in the past year. I passed on the new one because it was too high in my opinion, so I believe from a pure market perspective, you paid way too much. I have never seen one go for over $1000 on Ebay even with bidding wars and other craziness.

    New and in the box? And you passed on it why? Ive ran across a few in the last two years and ive never seen one sell for under a grand. I figured i was paying to much but at the same time its a really really nice adition to my collection and something that is fairly rare. So in the long run Im happy

    Hey, as long as you're happy and you have it, it's all that really matters right?

    There is/was one for sale at the local indoor flea market along with a PS1 one. He's asking $100 for each and both have sat for months.
