Factory Sealed Waverace - GameBoy - 89.99

Factory Sealed Star Wars - GameBoy - 46.00


Waverace officially beats the price I paid for Metroid II back in November! Are sealed original GameBoy games now going to rise in value?

Sometimes Ebay is really crazy. Sure, now it's Sunday evening, but I think 40 Euro are way too much for FFVI Advance. Look here:

http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=190221623116&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA:IT&ih=009

Especially too much if you saw some auctions last week or the one before. Then some of the FFVI Advance went for under 20 Euro or not much more if I'm not wrong. Also the price of TP goes up and down. A day or two ago a TP went for under 30 Euro. Strange Neutral

Factory Sealed Pilotwings ~ SNES ~ 124.00

Winning bidder has a zero rating though, which is always suspicious when dealing with rarities such as this

My thoughts exactly. Strange how he doesn't offer it to the next lowest bidder though.

I don't collect PC games at all but just find the price crazy. This game was also featured on gamesniped, probably that's another reason it ended so high.

This isn't as surprising as you wrote it. It maybe looks ridicolous to spend over 200 dollar for a GameBoy game, but Fire Emblem as a PAL version also went for ~80 pounds. This is nearly 200 dollar, if I'm not totally wrong. I think Golden Sun and Wario Land 4 have same prices.

Totally overpriced and yes, it is very surprising. This game sealed usually goes for $50-$70.

Why do people always say that games are overpriced, eBay auctions are generally the best indication of the value of a game at anytime, its governed by the demand from collectors to own the game. If the game sells for over $200 then at that moment in time, the game is worth that figure because at least two people have bid that price for the game, i think people class items as "over-priced" when it goes out of their particular price range - if a game sells for that price, then that is the value of the game, and i think you have to appreciate its a dynamic market and the prices are not going to be the same forever, they do fluctuate.

99% agree ! But you must note that some auctions are pushed by sellers second ebay accounts or by friends etc. ...

But when a game sells a week earlier for $50 and the next $202, you have to say that yes, whoever paid $202 overpaid!

I think there are probably 2 issues here.

Prices fluctuate. What they sell for is market value.

Freak one offs. What they sell for is grossly over or under priced compared to realistic market value.

As to this, you decide.
