It's not Ebay, but this deserves a mention:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Zendoku-for-Son ... 698&sr=8-1

In case you're wondering, another listing has it at £2.67 plus postage/

How about this bad boy...(sorry if its been posted)....

Yes there are only about (or so legend goes) 10 copies released before Sega had to withdraw them and destroy them all, over copyright and ownership issues...but come on!! Perhaps its time to befriend a coupe of Scottish millionaires and ask for a few quid....

Not a "Mega Rare", but after seeing this I had to question my maths skills for a while: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/8-snes-games- ... 500wt_1156

How about some Gumtree ones.

I know that Gumtree is owned by E-bay but I didn't think it would end up just as bad if not worse than E-bay.

http://www.gumtree.com/p/for-sale/metal ... c/86212515
http://www.gumtree.com/p/for-sale/ninte ... s/86095009

£50 for Twin Snakes (no pic)
£55 for Paper Mario: Thousand Year Door (no pic)
£60 for Twin Snakes (does have a pic)
£100 for a Cube with four games (no pic, no idea what the games are and doesn't even list if has cables and or pads/memory cards)

I see our old friend sickyanni is still up to his/her old tricks

http://www.ebay.co.uk/csc/sickyanni/m.h ... 513&_pgn=1

What's astonishing is the 2-3 sales amongst the hordes of unsold items.

^ Simpsons Hit and Run - £22.99!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

There must be half a dozen copies at least in my local CeX, think it's about £4 there...
Even at that price, I wouldn't touch it with a bargepole.

What? It's a great little game for what it is. Loads of Simpson humour and stuff for the fans. Certainly worth no more than a few quid mind.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

It looks like they just put up whatever RRP is on the cover and accepts offers. A bit silly to my mind, and I can't imagine it gets them any worth while sales, but they are persistent.
