    Damn, 250MX, that's super cheap for a console.
    Except, well, it's malfunctioning, and its the shittiest console Nintendo has made.
    That's like 12.50USD

    Nice repairing!
    it's good to see users actually fixing consoles that other users sold or threw away after breaking them.
    You gave it a second life.
    too bad you don't have an original base to go with it.

    Also, i found very cheap! $250MX with D-pad! no game was included, but i have Mario Tennis. in my country, (AKA D.F or CDMX) every saturday, a tianguis of videogames puts every saturday, and sells a lot of things, like mangas, videogames, action figures, broken consoles, etc. (Tianguis is a cheap shop) so if i have money, i go to buy a lot of things, like broken consoles, (and so cheap also!) that's the reason why i have a lot of consoles xD
    *My new base is my pokken controller box xD im so happy i finally found THAT. AFTER 6 YEARS. GODDAMIT.
