Virtual Bowling ending soon - HOWEVER it's worth noting this has been shill-bidded to hell as per all Yamatoku's high ticket items.

Check 2nd highest, that has 100% bid activity with this seller, and what a surprise bidded up from $8 to $500.


There is nothing shady going on with the second part of your post, that was me bidding $500. Pretty obvious that the game is going to go for well over $1000, might as well weed out the bidders hoping for a lucky $20 snag quickly.

I'm genuinely surprised that was a natural bid - Yamatoku are notorious for shill bidding, but that would explain why there aren't tens of bid retractions on your account, like there usually is :)

But it does make me wonder, why not just snipe the item in the end, if you wanted to snag it? If no-one else had bid over $500 you could have gotten it for less, assuming Yamatoku didn't shill bid.

They would have, by the time I made that $500 bid there were already ELEVEN bidders on the item, and the price was at something like $8.50 USD. Basically all 50 cent bidders, but as long as the price stays low you'll attract a ton of "dreamers" to the auction. To me these are just more eyes on the auction, which in the end equals more bidding competition and a higher final price. My $500 bid probably puts up a "nothing to see here" banner on the auction for many, so the bargain seekers just keep moving when they see that.
Hopefully, that makes for a small pool of bidders near the end to compete with, and you can get the item for relatively cheap in the end ($500 or even $1,000 would still be super cheap for a complete copy of Virtual Bowling).

Hello all, new to forum but have been visiting planetvb for over 10 years... I have a Jack Bros (US) CIB up on ebay but wouldn't mind selling privately to avoid some fees.

Damn, super spendy. Still holding out hope to find one of these from someone who doesn't know what they have and charge accordingly lol.
