Snes Fleamarket Finds

Been a little while since the last post, but that´s because I have been pretty busy lately.

In the last 2 weeks I whas at a couple of fleamarkets looking for retro gamesystems and it was pretty decent. At my first visit I was able to pick up a SNES in perfect condition with all the hook ups including Super Mario World and Street Fighter 2 for 30 bucks.

At my second visit I found a vendor who was selling all kinds of electronics and he also had a ton of systems. But mostly just Gamecubes and Xbox stuff. But there also was a box full of NES and SNES games so I picked up Super Castlevania 4, Mortal Kombat, F-Zero, Super Star Wars, Super Return of the Jedi, and an NTSC Contra 3: Alien Wars. all for 30 bucks. I was pretty happy with that deal, especially getting Castlevania 4.

The same Vendor was also selling an Atari 2600 Junior but he was asking 40 Dollars for it and I couldn´t talk him down to a better price. But I´ll be back soon and hope to still find a couple of mroe games there.

Since I am from Austria I can´t play Contra 3 on my Pal Snes so I bought a Fire NTSC to PAL adapter today, but for some reason it wasn´t able toget Contra 3 to work. So If anybody got any tips on that I´´d appreciate it if you can tell me in the comments.



  1. Happy that you came back to your blog :) Following!

  2. 40 bucks for a gaming system that could be bought for 20 dollars that seems too pricey.

    1. got it for thirty. was pretty decent because around where I live these systems aren´´t that easy to get and retail prices are even higher. Kinda sucks

  3. Welcome back! It's nice to find a SNES fellow :)

  4. I use an emulator for snes right now. Playing Chrono Trigger for the first time! fucking awesome you should play it (and Final Fantasy 6 if you haven't) peace.

  5. I don't got much tips for hardware problems. I don't use a SNES for my old school gaming anymore. Mine broke, so I stuck with the Wii's VC or my PC

  6. SNES! One of my dreams. You're lucky, they are pretty hard to get in my place too.

  7. Yea, it seemed weird as Real Biochemistry seid :D ;-)
