    there are a couple of sealed copies of motorodeo on ebay right now. are they worth purchasing at this price?

    Well, it says it's worth 125 bucks loose, here on the pricing guide, but I don't know how accurate that is these days.

    And before some pseudo-mod comes and gives himself a pat on the back, you might wanna repost this in eBay Insanity.

    And before that happens, just buy THIS one:

    Seems a better deal overall!

    Notice how all the items that seller sells (the second url) are private in his feedback, also I've seen those carts listed over and over again at least 5 times all factory sealed. I think a bunch were found in a warehouse IMHO. I think maybe MOTORODEO isn't worthy of a 10 anymore IMHO.

    BTW, you may have noticed I'm new to this place, but I've been into this stuff for decades. I hope I can contribute something usefull.

    Motorodeo has been quite common nowadays, most copies end in the 75-80 range on ebay, and sealed ones maybe $100, IMO it's only an R7 as it turns up more often now, I would buy the one for $109 and no more.

    Three things:

    1) a cache of Motorodeos and Ikari Warriors was found in South America.

    2) You can use the URL button to create hyperlinked text

    3) any ebay stuff goes in the Everything Ebay forum

    I'd definitely stay away from those buyers who like to make false claims in regards to their location. They're shady, nothing more.

    I've seen sellers from Mainland China, United States, fercris'sakes!

    Firstly moved to Ebay because thats where it belongs and secondly i've got no clue since i'm not an Atari person. I'd look above for your answers.
    Because it makes no attempt to be great, it is therefore extremely great.
