I'm not one to use Ebay too often. I let the little woman live on there. However, I was looking for a collectors item Mega Man for the original NES that my little brother wanted, and figured that'd be the best place to find it. Of course, I could just as easily let him have mine, but then I'd have to replace it, so either way you look at it, one way or the other I'd be bidding on it.
Anyway, I did the usual bidding and such. The auction was about to close at $34 plus shipping and handling. Then all of a sudden some random person come in and starts running up the price. We're not talking like minor increments, either.
The price of this thing went from $34 with 5 minutes left to $4309.22! You could get a used car or something else more useful for that amount. Am I alone in thinking that's a bit much? Unless it some sort of Mega Man or NES museum curator, there is no reason to be paying that much for a video game. *SIGH*
Well, back to find another one, I suppose. This is the reason I hate ebay, btw!
