    Well, I've got a guy I work with who is wanting to sell me his used Saturn and 3DO systems (just about the only major systems I don't have). I might be interested if the prices are right.

    What would be considered fair prices to pay for used complete systems? I've checked Ebay, and it looks like Saturns are maybe going for around $40 or so. Haven't checked into the 3DOs yet.

    Thanks for the help.

    Depending on the condition, I'd pay around $30 for a US Saturn. I know our local secondhand shop sells them for $35. Does it come with all the leads/controllers? Any games?

    No idea about the 3D0.

    3DO's tend to go for between $50-70 depending on which manufacturer...

    I wish I still had my Goldstar 3DO.

    Why would anyone want a 3DO is beyond me. But as for the Saturn they can go for anywhere from 20 bucks to 40 bucks max.

    I bought mine for $600/700 and sold it for $50. [​IMG]

    Road Rash and Wing Commander 3 were my favorite games among the several I had.

    Did anyone have Way of the Warrior? That game looked interesting to me, but it got bad reviews except from GameFan.

    Man, I really wanted a 3DO when I was younger. There were a handful of cool games on it - Road Rash and Need for Speed were really fun at the time, and Samurai Shodown on 3DO was about as close to the arcade as you could get. They also had Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo, which I always wanted but never played on that system. Anyway, yeah, cool stuff, although I'd never buy one now. [​IMG]

    I forgot I had Samurai Showdown and Street Fighter. SS was really good; SF wasn't much of an improvement over SNES other than the sound.

    We still own a 3DO, and still use it occasionally.

    Besides those games already mentioned. Twisted... is just a hilarious party game when you have some people over. We also enjoyed The Incredible Machine, and Monster Manor

    Ours is the Panasonic front disc loader. (original one)
