Maybe the decimal point slipped? All of his prices are way too high.

If people pay those prices they need their heads examined.

Anyone want an Amstrad hit sqad Enduro Racer cassette, arcade collection No. 1. I'll sell it for £799.99. I'm sure its mega rare one of a kind and all. :wink:

Lol, I have been looking at both eBay and our local 'trade me' auction sites and have been blown away by the expectations of what things will go for.
Some argue they are 'antiques of the future' -which I understand to a degree. But what is often ignored is that unlike legitimate antiques these things were mass produced. Even common things are getting 'RARE!' written in the title and starting prices that are coffee coming out your nose laughing funny.
I suppose fair play to them if someone is dumb enough to pay it, but it's ruining the fun for people just wanting to find old machines or titles to play. Which is why I think the plug n plays and cheap Ali express machines are good for anyone just wanting a cheap option to enjoy

Jesus, why don't people just play on free emulators and roms and be done with retro collecting already. :wink:

Pretty much it nowadays. Firstly, you can't keep it all, it takes a ridiculous amount of room. Secondly, greed has priced the fun out of it.

I love the plug n plays, the Mini NES etc. Sure you can play on your PC, but there's a lot of nostalgic fun having a miniature classic looking machine with some decent built in games. Providing the emulation is done well :)
