The worst CL price gouge I've seen
« on: March 31, 2017, 01:24:13 pm »
Think this is the topper for worst price-to-parts values I've seen in my years of prowling CL for cabs. $3900!?! Even if you remove a decimal it'd be overpriced. Looks like someone's trying to hit the stupid buyer lotto.

He angled the sticks too, which means that it is going to play like dog poo.
Acceptance of Zen philosophy is marred slightly by the nagging thought that if all things are interconnected, then all things must be in some way involved with Pauly Shore.

Does this come with a 60" 4k tv and a trailer to haul it with?

but...... "Thousands of games!"

If I had unlimited wealth, I'd buy it then pay someone to call him every three days to ask why a game doesn't work or why the controls on a driving game don't work.

Those joysticks are the perfect distance apart.
 
No way my kids could hit each other while playing while maintaining contact with their joystick.

It insults on multiple levels... price, design decision, build quality, take your pick. Even the start/coin/admin buttons are bizarre, two randomly spaced ones up top above and below the controls and then another on the front where you lean.

Also, where's my ---gosh-darn--- cupholders, for $3900 I'm gonna need some cupholders bro.  :laugh2:

Guys relax. He has a $3000 PC in there.

Why else would he say that he'll build just the pedestal for $900? $3900-900 means the pc must be a 3k build.

 :laugh2: :lol

You're forgetting that there are thousands of games installed - at under $3 per game and $900 for the pedestal  :cheers:
