Forums - Sales Discussion - Ataribox scalpers?

I was googling Atari VCS to see if they announced how many they shipped to the general public (after hey shipped to backers) and i saw a few listing on ebay at inflated prices. I hit shopping and is available at best buy, game stop and even directly from the Atari site with free shipping. So will anybody buy it at 599 plus shipping or even at 520 plus shipping?

Unlikely - it isn't Atari, just a company who bought the rights to use the Atari logo.

I think that the only way the thing would become successful is if Valve bought the box design for a retro style Steam Deck or similar. Otherwise it's just a collector's curiosity. You are buying it to say that you have one...

From what I understand stores just don't want to carry it as they were not moving. Like Best Buy, you can order one and they ship it to a local store and you can pick it up. Seems places are just selling whatever stock they have. Unlikely of the second run of these. What I thought would happen, happened. Outside of the few people buying on the nostalgia factor, this thing is DOA.

Bite my shiny metal cockpit!

People who scalped the Ataribox are losing money , they regret it , I am happy not everything is scalp for good expect the same thing to happen to Switch Oled, The masses are not paying 500 for this on ebay when you can get V2 for 300 in any retailer, I do like the Oled but not even I would pay 350 even in walmart, I mentioned I don't mind people double dipping just few diehards with extra money and I guess those same few have Mario edition and Monster Hunter switch editions too, but they are few, and few were released. The oled gonna be dead for Scalpers . hog all that inventory only to sell few while masses brush it off.
