I find when I buy a used game and the mechs and manual are removed I'm pissed. Then a few weeks later the seller has them on eprey to be tacky. If they are missing when I buy the game I try to discount the game by $50 to replace both. Never works, seller won't reduce the price.
Fortunately I worked in an arcade for several years and we had to change the mechs on every new game and I got to keep the original ones. Now I have a pile,of them and when this happens I take two from my pile and use them.
I don't really give a hoot if they come with the game or not. Can t REALLLY believe the chatter this has caused. I feel sorry for rick on this one! Ha Ha Ha Ha!!!! Now he is damned if he does or doesn't provide them.
No big deal to me, I want my game and I'll put them in myself. Like I would if I bought a used game that the owner removed them, the manual and locks.
Btw, it comes with a lock right?
