Unless of course you'd be fortunate enough to get your hands on one of these:

It was a JVC inside mod job done to X'Eye/Wondermega owners per request.

Victor Japan called it a '32 bit remodeling kit' and it was of course for the the 32x to be used with the console. You could bring in your system, and for ¥5000 (excl. tax) they installed this new lid. This service was available until 2013.

maaaan, someone donated a Popful Mail case a while back (super appreciated), just trying to find a loose disc for a reasonable price...but the few ive seen lately want $100 for it, despite CIB copies going on ebay recently for $120-150. nuts to that!

also wishing i'dve picked up Space Adventure Cobra in the day, having a blast with that one - no idea what a good price is for it right now, i'm guessing anything sub $200? that one's legit rare too, like i don't even know where else to look for it, but i'm having a blast with the burn i'm currently playing!

Ok so I need some info from more informed collectors. My local retro store usually sells games at eBay to +10% ebay prices, but I decided to get some Sega cd games today because compared to what vgpc says, they were steals. All four are complete in box: Sonic CD for 7, Dungeon Explorer for 5, Wing Commander for 5, and Samurai Shodown for 5. So are these good deals?

On a side note I need a sega cd console now :lol:

So I managed to get a working sega cd. Looked online for some prices on games and holy shit what happened with the games. I mean damn the games are now through the roof. Looks like I'll just try to get someone to burn disc for me. If anyone has burned copies they don't use or wants to burn for me please let me know thanks.

so yeah, when i got back a model 1 sega-cd in like 2012 or so, i burned all the games id wanted to play...in the years since, ive picked up nearly all the ones id really liked, and gave my friend those burns but he's a bum & i know damn well he ain't playing em but still wants em.

so yeah mas - if you want, hit me up with a list of stuff you wanna try & ill try to get em out with the SMS games, whenever those arrive!

honestly, that scene went to shit in the last few years, prices went crazy & my hopes of finding even a disc-only copy of Popful Mail for a fair price went out the window. gonna check back on that one down the road & see if things have settled down!
