Dreamer of the year (Arcade Edition)

So, following on from the highly successful 'Dreamer of the year' thread in Motors and the few auctions that pop up here every now and again, I though it would be a good idea to start a thread for Retro stuff that... Well, baffles belief at the price they are looking!

Exhibit A

Has to be a mistake

Okay, so I might be cheating here..but it's one of the most stupid things I've seen in a while and he only did it as he thinks it'll be retro of the future -

Lol add a cheap plastic case and suddenly the price skyrockets. I'll off to lay a few turds in some collectible game boxes and sell them on ebay.

The giant red text makes it rarer.

At least quarter-millionaires can afford it now. They always got a rough time.

It might be very rare but he can **** of with a quarter million. Unless fiddy cent is a fan of the original game he's **** out of luck because I don't know any other millionaires stupid enough.

Hey, I have a copy of Fifa Soccer for the MD, if I wrap a plastic casing around it and stick it on adverts for 250 euro, can I get a shout out here?
Can one buy ones way onto the Dreamer of the Year (Arcade Edition) wall of fame????

At €150 for a PS2 that's... perfectly working! This is a steal

http://www.adverts.ie/playstation/ps...s-games/628662

But even better for you bargain hunters... 9 games at €5 each, 2 controllers for €10 each and a guitar hero guitar for €20... (total €85) He'll do the lot for only €250! Wowzers!

I'd buy it if he had a memory card. Oh well
