EDIT: I was looking it, and I made an oopsie... it's not a dev unit, is a kiosk unit.
Sorry.

Howdy...

What the title says.
I've seen one in Facebook Marketplace for $45.00 USD (converted to mexican currency of course) and I wanna know what could I do with it.
Does it even work in any sort of retail mode? What could it be useful for?

Is the one with this many ports on the back:

Thanks in advance guys.
Cheers!

Even if it was a brick (I don't know if they locked down the kiosk stuff, or even if there were grades of it for basically any kiosk in random shops vs trade show) I am sure you could flog it on to someone collecting cool examples of consoles or scrounging for parts for more than that.

That said I am not sure what the law is regarding these. Most companies will do things like own all the units and expect them back at some point, however no bankruptcy company will care so if a game shop went pop then it gets sold as part of assets. It is unlikely to see the PF come kick down your door but some places might disallow sale.

It was in Mexico my friend, and yeah. It already sold out.
I didn't find any real use to it, so I didn't buy it.
