Prices seem way off to me, going by eBay prices that I've seen stuff sell for

You have to wonder where they got the prices from.

Yeah those prices seem really high to me too. Maybe if there was a bunch of games bundled with them but for the console alone nobody should be paying that much!

If the prices were really that high I'd sell my spare consoles [emoji23]

Yeah, those seem a bit out of whack. I'm not much of a buyer (don't have the room) but I keep an eye on eBay and you can definitely do better in terms of deals. I'm sure eventually, when working examples become scarce enough, prices will go up. Example: I used to have this Casio racing game watch as a kid that cost about £20 back in the 80s. Last year I fancied the idea of getting hold of one again only to find they were going for about £200 on eBay. Jaw hit floor, and I decided against it. It's gonna happen with consoles too, so perhaps now is a good time to buy, but we're not there yet.

Well, you can't really put much store by with any unilad claims but the Jaguar is about right 👍🏻
