It Cost How Much?!

Now, I'm well aware that there are certain Dreamcast titles out there that can be described as rare, collectable and sought-after, and as such command high selling prices when they pop up on eBay and the like. Rez, Skies of Arcadia, Cosmic Smash...NFL Quarterback Club?!

Erm...no.

But look at this. Some fucking idiot is trying to flog a copy of said American footy game for over £100 on Amazon! What the HELL?!

If it came with an actual NFL club as part of the deal, I might condone such an atrociously high price. But it doesn't, so I can't.

I think that game deserves the "Huge LOL of the Year Award". O_o
How did you find that thing?

Wow the amazon offer is either the ramblings of a complete schizo or a bastard that's trying to rip off a complete schizo...

The other lot however seems like a reasonable investment if you had dosh like that to throw around.

I reckon I must have notched up £1000 collecting DC stuff over the years, but my collection doesn't compare to the one on offer.

If I had the money, I'd buy it...

You can usually find tools like this flogging ultra-common titles on eBay AU as "Ultra rare!" or "Collectors item!".

Naturally, 90% of them are copies of Sega Rally or Sonic Adventure. Hardly rare these days (if ever).

The ones that spin me out the most are copies of games like Marvel vs Capcom listed as $99 'Buy Now'. Yes, the first one. Not number 2 (not that no. 2 is really worthy of a $99 price tag either).

I agree. No game in existence is worth $99. I don't care what any geek says. Spending what some people in developing countries earn in a year on a GAME is obscene whichever way you look at it. That's my 5 cents well spent!

I have found worse ;) I saw Feet of Fury (commercial homebrew) on ebay with a buy it now of $999!
