Tips for Buying EarthBound

July 4th, 2009 | Auctions, EarthBound

Someone recently put a big SNES RPG auction on eBay – some 25-ish games, including EarthBound. Here are just some of the games included, see the actual auction page for a full list + details.

I gotta say though, that Buy-It-Now price of $3500 seems a bit crazy. I’m not sure what the reserve price is, but hopefully it’s a lot less or this stuff will never sell 😯

That image made my eyes bleed out of my skull.

Yay, EB and both SNES Final Fantasy games. If it were just those three games minus about $3400 I would consider buying it.

Shooo… That’s a ton of RPGs!

I would think about biding if the auction wasn’t already over $300 and if the buy it now price was less than $3500.

Oh god. What’s next, EarthBound for $7,000? =_=

Idiots think they can make us cough up all this money all of a sudden because we like it so much. For goodness sake don’t buy it. Wait for this sucker to lower the price.

I can’t wait until eb fans get so old that they can’t be bothered to throw money away at astronomically priced auctions so I might finally get a complete copy for less than a G.

Hmm, he also said he was including Seiken Densetsu 3 and a few other Super Famicom RPGs.

(sheds tear)

pooppoop said on Jul. 5, 2009

i don’t know how many of you played e.v.o.
but my god is that a beautiful game

i love it in an earthbound kind of way, even though they’re not much alike

I peed a little.

Jeagle101 said on Jul. 8, 2009

Mmmm… My RPG Gaming senses are itching to have this collection.

ZombiePaul said on Jul. 8, 2009

EVO is amazing! It’s one of my favorites and I still play it from time to time. The music is fantastic and some of the tracks are some of my favorites of all time. If you like games with a very distinct personallity (Like EB) then you’ll probably dig it. Go try it out 🙂

Madmofo said on Jul. 9, 2009

I wish I took better care of my games as a kid, I still own 16 of the games on that list, but no boxes and the EB strategy guide has been very well used over the years. I may have to try EVO out at some point though, I keep forgetting that game existed. Still I prefer my way of treating my games, in that I lent them out to all my friends without regard for condition so that everyone new the joy of a good ol snes rpg. FFIII (VI) was lent out more times then I can keep track of.

Not an idiot said on Aug. 25, 2009

As you see it went for about 2000, it could’ve gone for more, the seller has posted another one (the exact same games for sale) at buy it now for 3500. Someone will pay. And its not that un reasonable

IAMCARBONDOG said on Jan. 23, 2011

idk why everyone is flipping out so bad in essence its not that bad and some of these games are REALLY hard to find like E.V.O. and Ogre Battle in box. Thats amazing already not to mention all the other gems

Plus most of them were mint.
