    Default Is this a joke?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=8234126604

    Trying to make newbies think it's a rare game to get the price inflated or what? This game isn't worth much at all, aside from being a somewhat rare PAL exclusive. If you check the seller's feedback you can see that he bought this for 12 euro + s/h not too long ago.

    I actually saw that auction minutes ago and thought it was weird cause I had never heard of the game. So your saying its PAL eh... that makes sense then.

    Yeah, you can always see that a game is PAL by the circular white seal and the letter "A" or "B" written on the front of the box and cartridge, bottom right.

    Something that strikes me as odd are those two low-feedback bidders:

    rsgump - Has already 1 positive feedback from the seller. Received this 40 minutes after the auction ended. Also, in the last 3 months only bid on 5 items, which by some weird form of coincidence, are all items for sale by the seller. Did not bid on anything else. I'm pretty convinced this is a shill account.

    nard367 - has 6 feedback, 3 of which are from now NARU'ed sellers. No bid activity at all in the last 3 months except this item. Can't find any evidence linking this account directly to the seller, but:

    Further, the bid increment is strange. rsgump bid $349 and nard367 bid $349,50. I though the bid increment at that price is bigger than $0.50 which means that nard367 basically must have know what rsgump's bid was...

    Very strange...

    On another note exactly how do you look up the activity of ebayers? Like what items they have bidded on and what not

    Interesting...nice discoveries, I didn't even pay attention to any of that! I bet that the reserve is at 350 flat, so the next bid will cash in. I hope nobody bids on this...what a lame seller.

    I made a $6 offer for that Little Samson game for the hell of it and this is the response I get from the guy. Of course I made a little comment about how absurd his price was, but he seems very touchy.

    "It is rediculous for you to offer $6 for an item that is listed LESS than Bubble Bobble Part 2, Stadium Events, Flintstones 2 and Caltron so I know it is on a collector's lists...fortunately it will not go to you because it is obvious you are a BROKE ASS BEOTCH!!!"
