A few days ago a similar auction ended at eBay Germany, also with Gianna Sisters for C64. It ended at 77.76 GBP (€113,41) and I thought that one was high.
Obviously I was wrong :D

TOLD THIS ONE IS RARE

THE STORY IS THAT NOT ALOT SOLD OF THESE AND RARE TO GET HOLD OF

in other words they didnt know it was but saw the other ebay auction and thought theyd try their luck at that starting bid

You see they have put their name and address on the auction page too?

Hmm, I wonder if they'll get broken into and have the game nicked by an obsessed collector? Either that or Nintendo will send round the heavies to get rid of that copy in their quest to banish it from existance?

for the artificially inflated pricers such as this I just use emulation.
Some fans just push prices up by paying insane amounts for items.
Panzer Dragoon Saga, Ico , Suikoden 1 & 2 etc..
I remember Suikoden being in game for like 5.99 in the sale, now its insane on ebay £50 odd, a brilliant game but if the makers dont supply a game anymore just ISO it till they re-release it and stop the greedy jumble salers cashing in on our hobby.
