    I actually found something worth posting. I also had a 30% off coupon which helped. I'm not sure about current value though, especially for a complete copy.

    Thanks for that link. It is a bit hard to find info on it, it's not listed properly here on the DP guide either. It is on Atari Age listed as an R9 which is why I thought I should get it. Usually I try to stick to $5 tops for any game purchase as that's my personal comfort zone, but I make exceptions when I obviously should. At least now I do. It's been ages since I've found any game stuff remotely as good/interesting as this game.

    That original ebay listing for a complete copy shows a listing of $1999.99 but it sold with a best offer option, I guess it could have been sold at $1500.00 though I can't exactly find conclusive proof to confirm the amount. A photo of it is still available to see on watchcount, but the best offer price still can't be found from it. It used to be possible to find the actual best offer prices before ebay made some changes to their site.

    I did manage to find this yesterday, priced at $4.99 and I used a $2 off coupon. It's complete with inserts. Out of two large stacks of DS games it was the only game really worth getting. I'm surprised I even found this so soon as it's been mediocre for games for the longest time. Usually just terrible trash games or common titles priced more than they're worth, or just recent gen games that I have no real interest in. I might find the odd controller but usually just broken systems or hookups I don't really need. I mostly find non-game stuff that's still decent. I did pass on a few things today, a loose untested GBA SP with a lousy game for $19.99, a loose PS2 slim that was modded but looked to have coffee spilled all over it(I think for $14.99-$19.99?), and a loose Xbox One controller for $3.99 which was priced well but I can't really test these at home and I assume these to be defective in some way because it seems too current to be donated(maybe I'm paranoid). I'm ignoring all the damaged/overpriced Wii, PS3, PS2, Xbox 360 consoles and hookups that are usually there. Maybe I miss other good stuff because I'm not there the whole day.

    You could try emailing the seller.

    I don't have an ebay account so it won't let me contact the seller.

    I recently found an Atari 800 cartridge of Demon Attack at a game store for $7.95. Snore.
