@ogo79 If you had a Sim City NES prototype priced at $500, you'd sell that faster than Limited Run Games.
(I can imagine Nintendo, on one of their days they decide to be evil, teaming up with them. But even when they produce something in scalper-friendly quantities, I don't think they'd want to actually endorse such a pro-scalper business.)

nintendo has always been evil lol

RIP half.com, you were good for sometimes getting good prices on retro games.

I see ebay must've just closed it very recently.

Besides getting Mario + Rabbids for my Birthday, I decided to give my PS2 some love:
Shin Megami Tensei Nocturne/ Digital Devil Saga 1/2, and Metal Slug Anthology. This week is gonna be fun.

@deniro444 You do realize the Wii U IS NOT retro.

And further, i'd say that neither are the PS2 or DS.

PS2 is 17 years old now, people started calling the Dreamcast Retro back in 2014. Plus, there's been a TON of times where we've posted about PS2 games we recently got, so I'd say it's retro at this point.
It's also starting to have titles that cost over $150, so it's totally retro

Super Castlevania IV for a measly £10!!!

Was delighted until I noticed it was a repo...

I don't know about the PAL version but the US version was so widely printed that $10 is about what the game SHOULD cost (if games were priced on scarcity) but it's one of those games where demand has pushed the cost above the "should cost" value.

I hear Super Mario Bros./Duck Hunt is a $10 game these days?
Woah! Back in my day that was a 10 cent game. (we'll ignore I probably paid GameStop 89 cents for mine many years ago)

@ogo79 I heard of people in Florida trying to shoot Hurricane Irma away. I thought inappropriate usage of guns was a stereotype of Texas.

If you think that's bad, complete English PAL copies of Symphony of the Night go for $350+. Apparently it just did not sell at ALL.

I count it as Retro but I ordered Seiken Densetsu Collection for Nintendo /)* .
I'm taking a hit for the team here, hoping Square-Enix will make my purchase pointless. I got us Yokai Watch 1 and 2 (maybe 3, we'll have to wait on that) and Dragon Quest VII and Final Fantasy Explorers.

I ended up getting getting the retroport nes-to-snes adaptor.

Quite surprisingly, all the old games we had literally gathering dust for years work perfectly.

Video quality is awesome, but the sound could be a lot better.

So now, I kind of "got" some new retro games to play (because I already had them with no way to play them):

Yoshi, Super Mario Bros 3, Mickey Mousecapade, Astianax, Blaster Master, Little Nemo: The Dream Master, and Pin Bot.

Oh! eShop Gurus.

@KingMike Super Castlevania 4 is fantastic, imho is the best Castlevania ever, even better than Symphony of the night (I know they are different type of game so it can be questionable if you can compare them or not) I think it is perfectly normal that the demand is high.
It was the absolutely best action game until God of war 2 imho, and now that GoW2 is in 1st place it comes immediately after GoW2 for me

$20 shipped for loose Super EDF and Out of this World for SNES sounds like a nice deal. Seemed like OotW was going for nearly that on its own.
