    Default Hope springs eternal ..

    ... for some people, anyway.

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...151499525&rd=1

    How he thinks he is ever going to get away with that, I really don't know. Still, if he wants to spend the money to put it up there, I feel that is punishment enough. And if anyone is stupid enough to buy it, likewise.

    Strange auction indeed. What is he selling? I have the idea that he burned 370 Sega CD images on CD-R himself and is selling those... He says it's not a ROM-CD with emulator software, but he also never says they are original games (only that you can play them on a real Mega CD)

    They will undoubtably be copies. Are there even that many different MegaCD games? I know there's only 100 PAL releases.
    Sadly, I've noticed a steady increase in ROMs CDs and similar recently, and they keep cluttering up my favourite items searches by listing practically every game that was released on a system. Grr!

    For some reason on Ebay.uk Roms don't really seem to get pulled,
    and they always have some bids.

    Look at the windows in the screenshot... is he running that on Gens? Looks like it would have to be just an emulator with ROMS to me.

    Of course he's not selling CDRs, with that many Sega CD games I'm sure he's burning them onto DVDs. .

    Actually, For the $300+ that he's asking he's be able to send it to you on a $100 200gb IDE hard drive and still make $200 profit.

    I saw this same auction on ebay.com as well. Maybe it's actuallly single disc burns of all the games, heh. Still lame.
