If this dude came in here was like “I just bought a US Neo geo for $1000 I think I got ripped off” no one would have given it a second thought…

But the fact he is in such hard denial and tries to rationalize it with the most retarded logic is beyond hilarious.

Can you imagine interacting with this guy in real life, lmbo

There's nothing to rationalize. I wanted a US AES. That is what they sell for. If you think people should only buy Japanese AES to save money, you're welcome to your opinion. I wanted a US AES though.

We get it, you don't understand how the Neo Geo works. You only know one thing apparently, just throw money at the problem.

If I have to choose between throwing time or throwing money, smarter to throw money when you're talking such a small amount.

If I srill had a US console I probably wouldn't mod it either. They're worth too much now.

Man listen, there's a town called Lockport about 2 hrs away from me. There is only one sole game shop there and I went to visit, I had to laugh at a lot of the prices there. This guy had sega saturns console only for..$299! LOL I asked him why jack up these prices so high? and he said that its worth warranting due to it being a local business. He pushes to customer that they are genuine and that its there in their faces without the hassle for online shopping. At the same time he is always defending himself on social media but limits comments, so there's that.
Is that the guy with gold teeth??

$999 is not a small amount.

To some it's a lot, to some it's not a lot.

You're also easily looking at $100 in tax and shipping buying a US AES on ebay. So to save money, I would need to find one for under $900. Any US AES on ebay for under $900 has serious damage.

Well then you could say, well if you wait months for the right auction to come along and you get lucky, maybe you can save a hundred bucks. Maybe not.

Why waste the time and energy over the price of a sushi lunch when I had the opportunity to support a local business that has been very good to me, could play immediately while I was in the mood, not to mention the peace of mind of testing and inspecting in person, plus a 90 day warranty from a place I trust.

If you are willing to go through a ton of effort and inconvenience to maybe save a hundred bucks, awesome! You do you boo boo.

Somehow I'm smart enough to see a Japan AES is better value than a USA model.

I'm smarter than beef and MSL combined apparently.

Of course it's a better value. Nobody said it wasn't.

But it wasn't what I wanted. I can't force myself to want something just because it's a better value.

The problem is that you want everyone to
want what you want. You should accept that different people have different preferences for different reasons.

Stop replying; you'll be fine. You're far from the first to pay extra to get a US system, and given what they go for, it makes sense to leave it stock. At this point the people are taking issue with your defensiveness, not the purchase itself.

Why would I stop replying when I'm enjoying myself?

Everyone keeps giving me advice on what is best, but I am happy with no complaints doing things how I'm doing them.

I haven't been defensive at all. Just answering questions and comments as they come.

If it makes you guys feel any better, I just ordered a Japanese AES with unibios to give to my neighbor as a birthday present. He's enjoyed playing Neo Geo with me and I'd like him to have his own.

Let's all spread the love.

I'm also your neighbour and actually, my own birthday is coming up soon.

So...
