Thinking about getting a Gamecube with Metroid combo and picking up Zelda

Wondering what credit I'd get for a Dreamcast

Might trade in my PS2 also.. anyone know how much you get for those ?

You'll get next to nothing for the Dreamcast since they [Eb] were selling them new for $50.

Although a trade-in would be much quicker, selling your consoles privately through classifieds,
ebay or the for sale/trade forum would get you considerably more (like 50-100% more).

PS2s just dropped at Gamestop/Babbages/Software Ect/Funcoland - they're worth $100 in store credit or depending on your area, $80 in cash.

Dreamcast prices dropped like a rock as well, I think we give like $10 store credit for the system. Maybe more. They sell for $29.99 used now

Games and accessories go for different amounts.

You could probably sell them here on the FS/FT Forum and get more money.

Especially if you have an "older" DC.

They disabled the "feature" like June 1999, or June 2000????

Seems like those are the manufacturing dates I have heard.

September 2000. All the DC freaks come into my store looking for them. They're such a steal @ 29.99
