I really regret having sold both my copies of Black 2 and SoulSilver. Gosh they were the best Pokémon games ... 

And now both of these are selling for a gold price ...

It's pretty clear that these aren't serious listings.

If you are in the market for the game, you shouldn't have any trouble finding it for a reasonable price in the near future.



So what you're saying is I could potentially trade my copy for a PS5 and I'D be the one getting a shit deal?



The massive sales of this collection pretty much guarantees a low price forever. There is always going to be a good supply of copies out there.

Can we make Really low offers to this people on Ebay?

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.

I know how you feel.  I am a retro gamer myself and I am trying to buy NES, SNES, and Genesis carts and I am slowly building my library.  I am not a collector, I buy games because I want to play them.  That said, I am watching the games I want to buy swell in price month over month.  There are fewer and fewer loose cart games for sale on ebay now and everything is either a Chinese repro or is being sold as a CIB collector's item at a crazy price.  I saw an SNES Earthbound cart sell for about $220 USD back in January but now the cheapest authentic earthbound carts on Ebay are going for around $450 and these carts are not even in great condition.  I think that there is a commodity boom/bubble going on right now and that is making collectors items in general inflate in price.  It's very unfortunate for people like you and me.

The best way to fix this problem is not to go after the scalpers, but rather get Nintendo, Sega, Square Enix, etc to be responsible stewards of the industry and create new production runs of these games, especially the ones that are going for crazy prices.  There is no reason why Nintendo can't immediately deflate the scalping market for Earthbound, Fire Emblem Path of Radiance, Baten Kaitos, Majora's Mask, etc.  Sega can do the same for basically every one of their Genesis, Saturn and Dreamcast RPG's which are all massively price inflated now.  The demand is high enough now that I am sure that Nintendo and Sega can easily turn a profit by doing this as well.  I guarantee that Nintendo could sell at least 10,000 earthbound carts without difficulty if they were to sell them at the original MSRP.  How much would an SNES cart cost to manufacture now compared to 25 years ago?

I bought Nekketsu oyako for 100 dollars a few months ago , It's now 240 for perfect jewel case Sega Saturn version.

Are they even still scalpers anymore? They're not buying a product before others can buy it and then inflating the price, they're really more collectors, they bought an item that's no longer available and are now benefiting from collecting it.

Plus, why on earth do you hate them? This is 100% on Nintendo. There's absolutely no reason whatsoever they can justify removing the game from sale (especially the digital version!). The "scalpers" have done absolutely nothing wrong whatsoever here, anybody that buys something that's plentiful and available to everybody and then sells it later when it's now worth more is definitely in the right. Nintendo are the arseholes, hate them instead.



Might keep my copy sealed for the time being I guess.
