Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Scalpers reckon you'll pay $2600 for Super Mario 3D All-Stars

Scalpers are already capitalizing on Nintendo's decision to remove the Super Mario 3D All-Stars compilation from sale by listing it on auction sites for thousands of dollars.  

The Super Mario 3D All-Stars compilation bundles Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy into one package. The twist? Nintendo has followed through on its strange promise last year and removed the Super Mario 3D All-Star compilation bundle from sale on April 1. 

Given it's now no longer available to buy physically or digitally, scalpers are already trying their luck with online auctions. While most auctioneers thus far don't seem to be taking the proverbial too much, this one, for instance, has a starting bid of £1000 – that's $1383 – and a Buy it Now sticker for an astonishing £1900 / $2627 (thanks, TheGamer). It's not even unsealed!

This one has a purchase price of £1500/$2000, and this one is squeezing would-be buyers for €500/$587.

The nerve of these people , I hate these guys even more.

Well, I'm having trouble on Ebay for certain game "Panzer Dragoon Saga" , I want it so bad but It's futile, I'm not spending 1k for a single game . And they still have the PS5 at 700+ but in auctions, The buy now peeps won't budge still 1k + and there are people who still don't know how to buy from an auction in ebay . Or purchase anything on amazon with insane prices that amazon never adds an auction like ebay.

Panzer Dragoon Saga is a very rare and sought after game. The people selling it are not jacking up the price. That is what the game goes for. 

Sorry for being a bit of a jerk, but Im tired of people complaining about scalpers. Scalpers wouldnt do it if idiots didnt keep buying useless shit for a large amount of money. Who is the worst? The guy selling a PS5 for 1500 bucks or the guy buying it for 1500 bucks?

IDK? Who should be blamed? Or have the worst ? But, I'd go with scalpers , The buyer can be an uneducated mom trying to buy his son a PS5? I've seen Xbox One X sell for 600 dollars in 2021 , doing their "hook line and sinker" "mumurs sucker. And in his description say's "No returns" which I find in Facebook stores.Not all are easily tricked? It's usually Parent's and those who don't research in Price charting , That impulse buy.

Thanks though, Life's tough.

If you can just impulse buy something at 1500 bucks, I dont think youre much of a victim of anything. Its not really difficult to find out what something is worth. They could start by asking their kid how much it costs. Then search online. Its not like information is difficult to find these days.

I mean whats another option here? Make it illegal to sell your stuff for anything above a set price?

Or maybe the kid might be a toddler? When I was 6 years old I didn't know how to read. I also wasn't good at counting money. There's also kids who just want the console now because next month it's their birthday? And omit research . I'm guessing the target is high middle class moms with kids that don't care about money? few other by different means?

I don't think it was this bad in PS360 era ? IDK? how things gotten like this? I'm just confused as rest of the world how it has come to this? But, I expect auctions for PS5 to lower more in few months. Hopefully earlier?

Yeah, Sony will release more consoles and this will be a thing of the past...until the next gen of course.
