    Hi folks,

    I'm considering putting my Steel Battalion box set up for sale on AVF..

    First though, I wanted to check if it's still a desirable piece of kit - obviously I wouldnt want to be wasting time listing it if it's going to attract crazy "I'll give you £10 for it" offers.

    Its the full box, joysticks - pedals etc.. Comes with Steel Battalions 1 and 2 and all wrapped up in it's packaging.

    Can anyone tell me if people still look to buy this setup ?

    anyone seen a "wanted" add for this at all recently ? :hiya:

    Noooooooooo Dont sell it - PLAY IT!!!!

    Always looking for more players online, its pretty damn quiet on here nowadays :'(


    If anyone on here does buy it though and needs some training then send me an FR, I'm always happy to help people get to grips with this game cos it is brutally tough when you're starting out...

    and if anyone doesnt know about this game and wants some more info, take a trip to www.lineofcontact.net - loads of info, screens and vids to give you an idea what its all about.

    Woo ! A fan...

    I set it all up when i first got it (last year) but your right, it's incredibly tough to get going...hence it's been in it's box ever since...

    I do know a few other people who play it though, one of them even goes so far as to say it's *the* best game on XBOX..

    That's because they closed the servers last year, surely?

    I'd agree with it being the best game on xbox by a long way.
    There's so much depth to the gameplay. Teamwork and communication is the key to success in every match, which is what makes it the biggest challenge online imo.

    As far as the servers being shut down, yes - capcom have pulled the plug on the campaign server, but the game is still there to be played in free mission, and its still well worth playing too. If anything its actually evened the playing field by taking away the optional parts and bin restrictions.

    there's still nothing quite as satisfying as seeing 'destroyed' pop up on the screen in that game - every kill is hard earnt and feels like an achievement, unlike most games....

    Sadly, I had to punt my XBOX to be able to afford a 360 from launch - Obviously SB isnt compatable with it though so it's doing nothing other than taking up space...and its a BIG box.

    Have you tried Gamestation - one near me has one boxed up still selling for over 100 so they may give you more than they are currently going for on ebay?

    It's taking up too much space, and i need the dosh - so it's got to go. I have my eye on a Logitech Harmony ;)

    There seems to have been enough interest anyway so worth a shot - anybody want it ?

    Looking for £140 - it's pristine !

    *mods* Do feel free to move to trading forums if desired :hiya:

    You wont get £140. Maybe £70-100 depending. The Line of Contact servers getting turned off decreases the value, as does the fact its a fair few years old now.

    There's a thread in the XBOX forum for Tekki / Steel Battalion too. Might be more appropriate to post comments there than on a forum for a console which cant play the game.... :rolleyes:

    iZed - I disagree. My local Gamestation had one for sale in the window last week priced at £180...it was there for 2 days then gone, demand is there.

    To quote gowdewiz.
    "As far as the servers being shut down, yes - capcom have pulled the plug on the campaign server, but the game is still there to be played in free mission, and its still well worth playing too. If anything its actually evened the playing field by taking away the optional parts and bin restrictions."

    I digress though - £140 is an optimistic price, and i'd happliy accept a little less. But i'm not going to give it away just because you can't play it on a 360..

    I did also say that mods should feel free to move the post - don't want to start another new one and clutter the place...am i not a good boy ?

    I got £90 for mine a while back from a local independent on a trade in.

    I would be surprised if you get more than £120 on ebay.

    Is it the first or second generation controller you have? Green or blue buttons respectively. If its the second you will get a bit more as it included LoC.

    In response to the LoC servers going off, that is only for the campaign, the other freeplay section works fine according to a few of the guys still on my Xbox Live friendslist with the game.

    I would consider buying it but I just sold my Xbox :(
