I must be out of the game too long, I'm sure I payed about 14 sterling for boxed mint off eBay about 5 years ago. Have the prices jumped that much recently?

Over Gunstar for €30?
Seems unfair, given that it's a fair price for an excellent, iconic, 6/10 title.

Personally I think there's a burst going to happen soon. I sold a chunk of games last year to fund a pinball.

I think the prices are getting insane and the ammount of people who are buying and not even playing is pretty high I think.

Its the nostalgia with most people I think. This is the perfect time for Nes, SNES and MD kids who played them growing up to be buying them right now, I'd say we're at the tail end of these people in the next short while.

Hopefully. I collect almost exclusively for the Megadrive and id like to pick up a few of the higher profile games in the foreseeable future. Itd kill me to pay over the odds for Streets of Rage 3 when its so grossly inferior to its japanese counterpart

Where did the bubble start? It seems like two minutes ago I was paying 10 quid for a retro compilation, only to turn around and find'em being sold individually on digital distribution services.
