    Default Shining Force cart and manual for $19,800?

    I'm confused on why this is currently sitting at $19,800 on ebay.

    Is it a joke?

    I don't see anything unique about it.

    Money laundering?

    Is it fake bidding to drive the price up?

    Well, it is rare. I mean, it even says so in the description.

    Yeah, possible shill bidding there... unless there's a valid reason anyone would bid on the same item 24 times in a row.

    Occasionally ebay gets hit with automated bidding attacks on random items.

    4chan picked this out randomly in an attempt to bump the bid to 1 trillion dollars.

    It's archived on chanarchive.org I just cant get the link because I'm at work, and obviously, you don't wanna hang out on 4chan-related stuff at work.

    Move along, nothing to see here.

    No. See a few posts up, and/or look at completed listings and you will see that this one is a 'prank' and many have sold for $15-30 in the past month.
