A Saturn of Snow
I think it’s well-known by now that a common thing on eBay is that a small group of people will snatch up all the EarthBound copies they can and then turn around and sell them for a much higher markup. That’s partly why I made BuyEarthBound.com, actually.
But for actual reference, I thought I’d give an example. Right now, there’s about roughly 38 copies of EarthBound for sale on eBay:
And here are all the copies of EarthBound available from one seller:
As of the time of this post, there are ten copies of EarthBound there. Meaning this one seller has 1/4 of the EarthBound supply on eBay.
Now, dealing in buying/selling of games IS a business, so I won’t fault anyone for that. I mainly wanted to point out a reason WHY the EarthBound market is what it is. In the end, the average price of the game wouldn’t be so high if buyers weren’t willing to pay it.
