Why would it be irritating for sellers? I've sold hundreds of items on ebay and if you don't want to sell it for peanuts stick a reserve on it or a higher starting bid. I'm no being argumentative here but it's certainly easier to sell stuff on ebay than anywhere else, once you accept it and start do...

From the N64 link you used the prices don't look that bad certainly not that far from ebay, you don't have many options other than ebay, Gamestation or bootys..... http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Nintendo-64-N64-Paper-Mario-Complete-Very-Rare-Game_W0QQitemZ160063005413QQihZ006QQcategoryZ3582QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewIt...

I'm sure i'm going to regret this but what's wrong with bidding in the last two seconds, always worked for me. Not my fault if you didn't put your maximum bid in.

It's true, there was a time where i was very excited to see an Atari woody at a booty but now i don't bother as you can get a known working one on ebay for a tenner, what's the point?

Neither 2600 games will fetch more than a couple of quid at best i'm afraid. When i first (or second seeing as i got my first Atari in '78!!) started collecting i thought the games would be expensive but they're not, you can all the best titles for a couple of quid. Keep them and start collecting. :...

I think it's more the TV that causes the trouble, not 100% certain though. My TV can be set to NTSC or PAL. EDIT.

Get a woody, far cooler. All games will play on a PAL machine but not PAL on an NTSC machine so for once we win. :D

Re:

Yeah, I seem to remember that too. The whole thing looks like it takes a fair few batteries anyway.. even the trailer! I've been quite lucky with Big Traks over the past year, £3 for the boxed trailer and Big Trak and £1.50 for the other, all working as well... http://img166.imageshack.us/img166/...
