Hello, my first post in here! :)

So, I'm selling my greatest piece in my collection, new, never used SNES console.

It's pretty cheap, I know :)

Do people really pay this sort of money for consoles? And if so why?

Doesnt matter how new it is, the games are going to be second hand, I really dont see the point.

Surely even if it was sealed (and the auction states its been opened for pictures) it wouldn't be worth half the price (and thats stretching it).

Its in wonderful condition (no denying that) but unless someone would want to hord it away and never play it (which reminds me of another console in another thread :D ) I can't see people paying that sum of money for one.

That said, if it does sell I'd be both impressed and suprised!

Consoles are rarely shrinkwrapped and it's not marketed as mint but "new in box"

However yes, it's a joke price, almost certainly a bot, in the wrong forum and we wouldn't allow it from a 1 post poster even if it wasn't.

Ah, when I saw new in box/never used my brain always thinks "sealed" (Only because I couldn't think why someone would buy a Snes and not use it at all)

Owning a brand new SNES can be really cool, but if you had to put a price on that, I'm pretty sure it'd never reach even €150...
But if you manage to sell it, can you please let us know the name of the crazy b******* who bought it? That way, we can all try to sell him stuff for crazy prices... :lol:

From the Wikipedia page for Amiga Power...
Whatever Happened To...

Usually a two-page feature printed on black pages, which discussed something that was in one state in the past and is now in a different one. The subject would vary, but it was not always about computer games.

A notorious example was Whatever Happened To... Game Reviews?, in which AP suggested that there might be a correlation between incentives given by game publishers to game reviewers, and the score subsequently given to the company's latest game. They suggested, if this was the case, that 73% was the lowest mark a reviewer could give to a game without falling out of favour with the game's publishers, effectively making this the mark of an 'average' game in other magazines.

If you wanna contribute to the forum for a while, get to know people and then try and sell stuff thats fine - But to try and sell your overpriced piece of crap in your first post is wrong..........

I already own a SNES, but it looks nice. Would be better if you threw in a few games along with it though.

And it's kinda overpriced. 900 bucks for a console, even a retro console, is way too much.

2 paperclips and an old polo I found in my coat pocket.

Seriously though, I love the "its pretty cheap I know" comment.
I assume thats sarcasm, but the guy really sounds serious!

I dont know he is finnish ! ;)

What a joke though - 900 euros !!!

Why oh why dont people put it on for 1 euro with a reserve price of 900 then in this case just to see how much it might be worth.

This wont sell at all. Mad Gamer is certainly correct in this instance.

Shame some people have to be so greedy, laughable price

I'm selling a NiB Nintendo Wii, never used !!! Never touched, original carrier bag (I'll seal it so you also have the nice air of Manchester in it) for a starting price of 999 EUROS ! W@W !!!!
