I sent him a note about other gaming systems, but yeah I think some prices are approaching double what they should be - especially for GumTree (basically CraigsList and all it's risks).

I also prefer it - but I collect Japanese versions over the American versions, I find them much more interesting and original to be honest.

Right there in the first post buddy :)

Here's the link:

- One small tidbit worth mentioning that I didn't see called out so far - the game is totally playable, in fact i think it's already mostly in English bar the title screen. I assume this boxed repro is using this translation:

Very nice example. I guess the big question people are essentially probing at is - are you intending to sell above face value?

I've never seen tabs on VB games (but I only collect JP), did they definitely come with them?

Come to think of it, I've not seen sealed US VB games either..

Here's the thing - I get why a CIB release is not part and why it is not offered - all sorts of advantages to that.

However, you're missing out in the 'no-brainer' impulse factor that having a CIB in there would bring.
More people would back it because it is almost no risk, you'll have lots of resellers wanting in of course if you do (which has both pros and cons I should note).

I would support with $100 without a CIB, but at least double that if there was a CIB, but it would need to be a genuine target (albeit not a certified promise) from the start.

If you know that your captive audience is relatively low in numbers, then you need to receive as much investment as possible form each individual, and a CIB target release (at least a soft-promise) is the most direct way to go.

I thought this was a registry for various 2015 projects and their respective threads?

I wish more people realised that sticking something in a case with a sticker doesn't increase the value 1000%

That's right in terms of asking prices for VGA-graded items, but it's also right in that it's stupidly overpriced - because all VGA-graded items are stupidly overpriced.

You could get a brand new stock unplayed JP VB on eBay easily for 20% of that cost.
