    Some blu-rays from the dollar store, dont see blu-rays too often there, usually multiple bins full of nothing but old dvd's so grabbed a few of them.

    Speaking of things you likely wouldn’t want to touch with a ten foot pole...I just got this...

    3BBCC410-65A9-4C80-8ED7-92D3AD3C5308.

    It’s the “Pro Controller”...for the N-Switch?!

    Got a original xbox from work with 2 controllers, one of them is the original Duke controller. It also came with pinball hall of fame the Gottlieb collection. I work at a hospital and on one of the units the nurses decided to clean their storage room and they found it and asked me if I wanted it or they were just going to throw it out. So I took it.

    I haven't had time to see if it works yet.

    Dang could be a multitude of issues if it won't power on... at least you have all the hook ups and controllers for when you find a working Xbox.

    I can get one really easily if I really wanted. My local pawnshop/retro game store always seems to have two or three in stock for pretty cheap I think. But free is always better. Anyways when I have time I'll open it up and mess around on the inside and see what's up. Hell it could be something as simple as a loose cable, it would be nice if it was. At worst I'll probably need to recap it.

    Bargain of the month for me.
    xbox_360_tbog_sept_19.JPG

    £10 got me a 360 slim with 250 gig drive inside it. Had PSU but did have to provide my own HDMI cable (nest of them in the box might forgive me for taking their friend in a few months). Best I can tell from the profile left on it then it was used for a few dozen hours of Skate 2, Skate 3 and Project Gotham 4 of all things. Sadly it did come from a smoker's house so the above is after I ripped it apart and blew/brushed out all the dust (was yellow, not quite at the point of smelling but shortly before tipover, inside the DVD drive some tar had merged with the slider grease to make a nice yellow paste at one part, did leave a slight scent on my hands and clothes before I washed them. Far from the worst electronics I have seen smokers play havoc with.).
    The wired controller also has a nice wire failure (only works with a straight wire at the USB end) but met that before and not like soldering 4 wires (or possibly just one) is hard, and also not like I don't have 10 other controllers around here already.

    As I wandered away I do have to wonder if I saw a deception smile from the people selling it. If all future attempts at conning me have results like this then I will die a happy man.

    Also a PS1/PS2 USB adapter with two inputs which is interesting, and because why not a SATA-IDE (and vice versa) converter thing because I like computer junk and odd connectors.
    + a few books, some wire, some tools and stuff few probably care about. Now to find a place to set it up on this bench and probably give my new copy of Eternal Sonata a spin.
