This is nothing more than someone having Castlevania copied to a blue disk... congrats featherpluckinfilms, that's one highly impressive price for something almost worthless Wink

No kidding, Martin. Some of these Famicom collectors, whoever they be, are getting worse by the day. Featherpluck sold a crappity smacking piece of paper (foldout manual) a while back for over $100. These high bidding eBayers sadden this Famicom fan. Sad

Seems to me that there are a lot of collectors out there who have absolutely no clue of what they're collecting, except that it is very expensive plastic?

Yeah I did see the metroid manual, some people just have too much money Smiley

Leave him alone, he is just selling stuff like anybody
else. My only complaint is that Ebay is jacking
people by the brim.

Paypal fee + Ebay fee + Shipping = no profit

Come on seriously, look at the economy + peoples
view about the world. Because nobody is buying new
things, and new things just are unapealing, the way
we are is the way we are.

I hate it when people do that...

RegalSin, that doesn't mean you can rape other people's pockets, either. Socialism doesn't work.

It seems like the Japanese are trying to take advantage of each and every American, with ALL their eBay auctions. It's saddening, and I just wish their auctions weren't even allowed on eBay unless their prices were comparable to American used copies of the same game.

Well you have to consider the item is imported, meaning the shipping fee is high, so that adds to the pirce. If I could buy it from a store, I would, but I am not there. They have the right to demand what they want for that item,

The same thing for the haorders. If they want to sell for that price, and know people will pay, then let them. That is how a profit and value is gained.

Think of it as an inbetween business, for which is what they are probably counting. I will admit I have paid prices
but in comparison for the quality it is worth it.

The flat fact is that, certain products are not meant to be cheap.
