I attended the first ever Too Groovy Toy Show, ran by, well, the guy that runs Too Groovy. It was a wonderful experience, and I enjoyed setting up the booth for my game shop. As is usual for these things, I ended up buying a lot more than I sold. It's just the life of a video game collector, I suppose. One item caught my eye though...this Xbox 360 Halo Reach Edition Xbox 360 controller. Some guy was selling it for four bucks (!), although it was damaged. After looking it over, I agreed to take it at that price.
I tore it apart a few days later, and it looked like the batteries had leaked, spilling acid all over the board. Some of the traces in the back were beginning to show damage, and the spring contacts for the batteries themselves were highly corroded.
