    Default aquiring a SNES

    Where could I get one? I can NEVER manage to find one (besides EBAY, and I can't sign up for that)

    So if someone has any advice, thank you

    Tons of people have them... I have 2! Look for the non "Gold" edition :P Nintendo swapped to recycled plastic later on, and that plastic will go a new golden color that makes it look sick!

    What are you looking to spend and list what you want it to come with..

    SNES is one of the main systems I sell.

    I would assume that most of the people on this forum have a SNES console, many having more than one. You should make a topic in the Buying/Selling forum telling people that you want a SNES (and games, perhaps). I am sure that there are many people who have one they can spare. Plus, DP members tend to be VERY generous, so you can probably get one for much cheaper than eBay or a retail store. I have made a few trades and bought a few things of DP members, and everything went smoothly.

    "Tons of people have them... I have 2! Look for the non "Gold" edition Nintendo swapped to recycled plastic later on, and that plastic will go a new golden color that makes it look sick!"

    Doubt it, I've had better luck with newer models than the ones that came out the first couple years of the system's life. Where'd you get that information?

    Are you sure you can't find one anywhhere? Where are you located? I'm pretty sure most used games stores in your area would have them (sometimes). You've just got to look around a bit. Usually, when EB or Gamestop gets their SNES' they are sold right away.
    Failing that, they are very common to find at garage sales/thrift stores/pawn shops. I'd be suprised if a pawn-shop near you didn't have at least one.

    DP trading forum, they are always up there for trade/sale and go for really cheap (around 15-20 with everything u need to pay)

    Garage sales! hit up 5-7 garage sales one day and you are basicaly guaranteed to find one, if not you will find plenty of genesis and NES to sell here on the fourms and fund your snes

    Good luck
