    Default Insane Sega Saturn Magazine auction

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...185518302&rd=1

    Great Caesar's Ghost! I say it goes past $225 easily, without including shipping I mean. Glad I got mine back in late 2003 when not as many people were aware of it.... now it seems like every diehard Sega Saturn fan knows about SSM.

    I love that damn magazine, and I'd love to win this auction. Too bad it's going to go for mucho money, and the shipping to the USA is $130 us dollars. Blecch!

    Even though I only had a fleeting affair with the Saturn, anything like this is a great deal. The reading time alone justifies the cost in my opinion. I might monitor this one, but I feel its way out of my budget.

    Heck, I'd buy the magazine alone for that great pic of what's her name from DOA 2 on the cover in that pic.

    WOW I didnt know they were that rare. I will be on the look out for these now. Even though, its probably next to impossible to find them here in the US.

    They're not desperately rare, just in high demand because it's one of the finest VG mags ever written.
    That's at least the 3rd or 4th complete set I've seen sold in the last 6 months or so, and I've not really been looking for them either.

    Actually, these were sold in the Staes in some Borders. I bought several there... but they were always expensive, like $10 or maybe $12.

    Still a great read!!!

    I remember getting those mags when they first came out cost about 3 mainly some were 5 when they came with a cover disc, obviously there is a strong interest in the mags.

    I really hope these mags go up in price more, for my own benefit later .

    The price hasn't moved for quite some time now. At 61 pounds, you have to consider it a good price for the complete set.

    But it will move in price, and with shipping, its probably going to be something like a hundred pounds. Which is a lot for magazines. I'd rather get games. I just don't know what to do!!

    $231 without shipping. I was right in that it would go over 225. Man what a lot of money.

    I wanted this. I'm surprised as to how much it sells for though - generally, old games magazines are virtually worthless.

    Sigh. More expenditure.

    Arent these magazines 50% ads shit? I have some old PC-Gamer (i think) magazines and its like ads on every other page. Full side ads too.

    Magazines like that was really expencive when I bought them. I think it was like $20 for each magazine.

    Not many ads in the Saturn mags at all really, just a few and they are mainly game release ads.

    Presumably he masturbated over the picture on the top magazine too many times and left sex wee on the deliverd product.

    Instant eBay banning, according to the rules.

    I think.
