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.

Just wanted to confirm that I got the Jack Bros (US) that pm5k00 was selling at a discounted price and in perfect condition. Nice seller and better user.

Kind regards,
