If clueless people will create most of the demand and pay whatever insane prices the sellers are putting out, then the new normal also means the games you got for cheap can be sold for insane price. I

"Rare collector's item" https://www.ebay.com/itm/392877785802?fbclid=IwAR2d4Y3T2eyNxwVioswUO6pL6NS8Ix4YUxDVszQma-TsasO18nTPLyVWDPY

oh it's funnier than that - the seller has been constantly relisting that for a couple of weeks now, dropping the price very slightly each time (it's still waaaay too high for the sat-on-by-an-elephant condition) but always to some weird non-round number...

I was willing to put a bid in at $5,999 but $6,004 is just to much.


"Game has been stored in smoke free environment.聽"

Thank GOD for that, I was really concerned about smoke smell on my Pokemon Red that looks like it just came out of the trash compactor in Star Wars!聽

There is also that seller's good buddy Leg Picture Guy:

https://www.ebay.ca/itm/402831326891

who's been trying to sell that for weeks as well. I think he started at $15k. I don't know in what kind of universe you want someone to fork over $15k for your vidya game and you can't even be arsed to upgrade from a single leg pic.

I don't even know what something like that would be 'worth' when it's that far gone.聽

In all seriousness, this is a perfect item for a $1 auction. We are joking the seller but I'd almost guarantee we'd all be shocked what someone would pay for it. It is still "sealed" and since people have gone Pokenuts, it would definitely sell for way higher than it should be worth.

Yeah, it'd go 2k or so probably. Some people have done auctions for pretty beat up copies and got that kinda result.

Those are actually against eBay policy, you can report 'em. It's under listing practices somewhere, there's a specific option for this kind of mystery meat listing.

This is Facebook Marketplace, it鈥檚 like they are way behind eBay on this stuff because it鈥檚 rampant with listings like this.

I've seen stuff like this before, but it's usually for a bundle of games and all of the games in the listing are commons.聽 I'm ok with that because it can be used as an easy way to get rid of commons for a seller and an easy way to pad your collection with cheap filler for a buyer.聽 But it's pretty shitty to throw in some good games to get people's hopes up.聽聽
