and there is the reason why these people do this. it's worth it for the 2-3 items that do get sold at inflated prices. like i've said before, there are as many stupid buyers as there are sellers on ebay :lol:

it's not worth it. Listing fees for the 100's unsold much more than any profit on this tiny fraction of sold items.

Don't forget there's a lot of free listing weekends that slip by unnoticed that are fee free. Plus you get about 100 free 99p listings each month, very easy to shift a load of crap that way for sellers.

See, I genuinely don't understand that kind of thing. Selling a game worth £10 for £100, there's always a chance that someone will be gullible enough to buy it, but surely anyone willing to spend £20,000 on a video game will be savvy enough to know what games are worth that kind of money? You can count on the fingers of one hand the number of games which are worth anywhere near that figure.

This weekend there was a "mega rare" copy of Altered Beast for the Sega Megadrive.

Odd, as i recall it was a pack-in game in the initial UK release.
