    Any way of knowing if it works!?
    I've found SCD's to have a high failure rate.
    That's my biggest concern

    Did he tell you he tested it and it works? People suck and all, but few will actually outright lie about a system working.

    Any idea how many or what 400 games?

    Probably worth 50 as a fair price (higher than I'd pay). Definitely not worth a DS Lite.

    Why don't you ask to meet at his house or your house and test it out before buying?

    I would take a Sega CD for $20 though.

    I would get the sega cd. As long as it works that's a decent price for one. At least from what I remember, it's been a long time since I've been actively into all this stuff so I have no idea what the going rate is now. Just make sure to ask if it works.

    The atari 400 I'd probably pass on, unless it has some really good games included. I highly recommend the atari 800xl for old school computer gaming. Awesome machine, I still use it to this day.

    If you couldn't come up with 40.00 a few days ago how are you going to come up with 50.00 now?
    Condoleezza Rice is nice, but I prefer A Roni!
