Title: Are you taking the piss?
Post by: TL on August 05, 2013, 21:34:50 PM
The official thread of eBay idiots everywhere . . . .

I present the following to kick us off:

$1000 for a crushed Donkey Kong for the XE?  I want what he's smoking!

I was considering it, even though I don't have an XE, but the postage is $89 so it tips it over what I'd pay  :o

TBH it makes me very angry to see such blatant extortion. There are enthusiasts out there with no idea where to look outside of eBay and such listings leaves one cold. If I won the euro lottery, I'd roll out a national education programme called something like FUeBay with T-shirts and the works ;)

OK, so I saw someone trying to get a NES game priced. The title of the game is Challenge of the Dragon. Since I like dragons and the image of the box they posted had a dragon on it, I decided to take a look at the game on YouTube. Well, it is a POS unlicensed game based on all the reviews I saw. So, can someone explain this price tag?!?!? Challenge of the Dragon on Ebay (http://http)

Although the seller has invited offers and there are a couple of games that fetch fairly high prices, I'm not 100% convinced that the buy it now price should be so high especially since the two more expensive games (Death and Return of Superman and TMNT: Hyperstone Heist) are missing manuals.

Well about four months ago I bought a bundle of 100 Speccy games off e-Bay for 27 including postage which was a good deal but even so, I normally have only had to pay about that price for bundles of the size that he is selling. And with better games to be honest.

Here's another one for the record books: Atari Jaguar Pro Controller (http://http)
Sure, they've been climbing in price for years but this one looks to exceed anything before it. AND IT'S JUST A CONTROLLER :o
$230.50 with 22 hours to go.

This auction isn't out of control but has the potential to be. Wondering what the reserve is but at the amount right now of $810.00, that would probably cover the boxed Pro Controller & CD attachment. There's a lot of good stuff in this to start a collection. Three base units as well 8)

HUGE Atari Jaguar collection jag cd 3 jag consoles boxed pro controller MUST SEE (http://www.ebay.com/itm/HUGE-Atari-Jaguar-collection-jag-cd-3-jag-consoles-boxed-pro-controller-MUST-SEE-/152192184075?hash=item236f5c6f0b:g:ukcAAOSwbsBXlNKK)

Oh, that's going to go for a lot more.  I'd be surprised if it didn't.  Jaguar stuff has become quite pricey!
Title: Re: Are you taking the piss?
Post by: Shadowrunner on August 06, 2016, 00:57:58 AM
I don't know. If you take out the CD player, Pro controller, and Rayman game, the rest is pretty common stuff and not overly expensive. Not the greatest condition either. I would think the value isn't much more than what it's at right now but maybe I'm not up on the current prices. Interested to see what it goes for!
Title: Re: Are you taking the piss?
Post by: Saturn on August 06, 2016, 02:22:17 AM
If it doesn't reach the reserve, we may never know what it was. I'm banking on ridiculously high.
Suppose I could ask the seller but too much trouble since I'm not bidding.
I'd like those extra base units 8)

I agree with Shadowrunner in terms of Pro controller, Jag CD and Rayman.
Theres a few other things in there I'd like for my collection like Flashback and Fight for Life but is it all really worth the price??

Lots of duplicates in there too. Even 3 copies of Chequered Flag! Maybe it IS worth it lol.
Title: Re: Are you taking the piss?
Post by: Saturn on August 11, 2016, 12:38:41 PM
I'm leaning toward thinking the seller is trying to retire on this lot or something. Or, maybe it means a great deal to the seller and if he can't get what he thinks it's worth, it's not worth letting go.
I can understand that method of thinking. ;D

Found the reserve a little further down. Guess it's holding strong until the closing minute so it doesn't exceed it by too much.

Now that people know the reserve, I wonder how many of those bids are just people bidding for the fun of it? A re-seller may put in a last minute bid but at that price I'm not sure there's any profit to be made. I could see it going unsold.
