Depends a lot on the games.

My initial reaction is that there's a good likelihood that a few worthless games are in the mix so the answer is probably no.

$40 to 50 for the console, and $5-10 each game is not unreasonable (depending on title).

Me neither. It definitely depends on the games though.

I would say that could be a great price.

I would let my dreamcast go with 2 controllers, a memory card, and over 30 games go for 120 + shipping.

Wow that's a great deal.... unless you have 30 crappy games (highly unlikely), that's a steal....

I wouldn't do it for $175! of course, I still get a few hours a week or so out of mine so it's not exactly "dead" to me.... And I still have one brand new sealed that I picked up for $50 just before they became "extinct" should my current one decide to fail.

seriously, there are so many great games on the DC system, I just would not get rid of it.... ever I don't think.... but thats just me....

Make sure the games are real . If you know what I mean. 100 doesnt sound bad since there a quiet a few gems in there.

Here in Atlanta, the local Pawn Shops are selling the console for $20 -$25 with one controller. The games are $5-$8.

Ask if the games are originals or cd-r copies (pirated). If originals, ask if the games come with all original materials (case, instructions). Find out what the games are and check the reviews of those games. Then decide if it is what you want...

If the games are pirated, don't bother.

i sold mine just before the price drop.

got nearly 200 for it with only 5 games 2 controllers 2 VMU's

i never played anything but Soul Caliber, which I really miss.

i would say that both of these deals would be good though.

Agreed, Damn_skippy's got a nice collection. I wouldn't sell that set for $200.
