Working in a video game store has its advantages and it is that consoles of all kinds can pass through your hands. Although this can turn into something negative if what happened to the owner of one of these businesses happens to you.
Video game stores allow you to get a lot of second-hand treasures, find valuable titles and also get rid of platforms you may no longer be interested in to get some extra money.
When it comes to selling a console, the usual procedure usually implies that clerks or the owner of the establishment check the status of the machinein order to calculate the price and if its operation is optimal.
If you have ever sold a console, you have probably decided format it or reset it to factory to erase all data of your games and personal files that you do not want shared.
The best hard drives you can buy for your PS5
If you need to expand the capacity of your PS5, these hard drives are cheap and also allow you to install dozens of games on them.
This is usually the usual procedure also for clients, but there are some who do not fall for it and they don’t even check what might be in their old console They haven’t played for a decade.
That’s exactly what one Pink Gorilla Games dskoopa client did to him, Cody Spencer, a streamer and video game store owner who agreed to take a look at this interested customer’s Nintendo DSi. Do you remember the camera that included this console, right? So get ready…
The owner of the premises went to check the console and the proper functioning of the camera and when he opened the gallery there was the cake… The client had not deleted the photos that had been taken and one of them showed his entire penis, openly.
There’s a customer trading a DSi with us and we’re testing all the features when we find a photo album and there’s only a picture of his penis in it.Spencer commented that he kept his composure in the face of the phallic revelation.
Do we laugh at him? Absolutely not. We didn’t say ‘hey dude, I think you forgot your dick on this DS here’. Did you forget about this photo? Did you want us to email this to you?’” I was joking.
And from this story we draw two conclusions. One is that if you are dependent and you have to value a console, it is better to be prepared for anything. The second is that if you are going to sell a console, it would be better to erase everything you have and give it a good review beforehand.
And speaking of sales, second hand and old games… The other day our colleague David Martínez asked this interesting question. What games and consoles can be considered retro? Where do we draw the line with current games?
Incidentally, it was recently reported that gamers had chosen the Nintendo DS as the console they would most like to see in a reissue or classic model.
