Captain's Log Stardate -316215.88
Look at what Rocky and I found in a Korean auction warehouse in Quezon City:
It's a Nintendo Famicom and a Japanese version of the SEGA Saturn. We were actually looking for supplies for our planned store when I saw those red and white colors piled in one corner. Rocky immediately grab the unit with the least dirt. On the other side, I saw the only SEGA Saturn on the shelf. Without hesitation, I picked it up.
The SEGA Saturn doesn't come with a power cord, AV cables and games. Same case with the Nintendo Family Computer. You could tell how the previous owners abused these consoles with the amount of dirt on their surface.
The list price of the SEGA Saturn is P1500 and P500 for the Nintendo Famicom. Good thing Rocky's mom is with us. So after haggling the cashier, we got both systems for... TADAAAA!! P500!!!! Not bad eh? I've been looking for a Famicom for ages! The only problem is where to find some AV cables and games for the SEGA Saturn to check if this thing actually works. :D
About those dirt, they're no match for Mr. Fantastik :D
BTW, I finally decided to buy a brand new motherboard and resurrect my PC. It's an ASUS P4V800D-X.
Here's Karlo installing the board.. faster slave! Biro lang. :D
