I think there's going to be an accounting nightmare. Would I get extra credit at the end of the year since my tax rate is 8% (and I have to pay taxes on online purchases)? Food is not taxed here; would I be eligible for a full tax refund? What about states like Virginia, with a 2.5% tax on groceries? Or, going to Chicago, which last I heard, was 10.25%?

I want to know what that 297th game is myself. My guess is that it was a game cancelled late into development.

Man, I was interested in Kuon until I saw the prices on that one. Not your fault there, but I can't do a fair price on that for a genre I'm just developing a possible interest in. ObsCure, though, may be doable. Could I inquire about that one?

Ehh... even for a ballpark, VGChartz is questionable at best. I used to be a mod there, and the amount of extrapolation done is insane. Some years back, Atlus did publically state that almost all their numbers were way off. Specific titles weren't mentioned, but numbers were off by a factor of 5- in both directions. It's been said that they have access to about 2% of the sales, and expand on the rest. Said expansion relies on things such as looking at amazon.com sales rankings in video games. Digital sales were something they were trying to figure out, with no real headway when I left.

Now, this said, Japanese sales numbers are published, so they are reasonable numbers. There is still some stretching, as the last legs of a game aren't published due to too low sales to rank. (Some months, games with as few as 60 copies still rank, so...)

I don't do online gaming, but this type of thing pisses me off. Almost everyone assumes that everyone has a cell phone. Well, I don't, and I don't want one. This alone moves me from the probably will buy to probably will not buy. There is no reason, especially since the system is online and connected to your friend already, to require an entirely different device.

Depends on the mod. If it's like what I've done to a couple of my systems (region switch installed on back) then it's fine, and I'd even say worth a premium. But just a custom firmware whose main function is piracy, I'd say no. And DEFINITELY not over market value for an unmodded system.

I wouldn't have the patience to wait if that's all I had left. I remember paying $900 for the last VB game I needed. Out of fairness, I've never seen it cheaper...

Seems unlikely, but looking at recent sales, it looks like the game and manual are about $5K each, and the box now is a whopping $15K! I can see there being quite a bit of sticker shock between those numbers...

PCE (and by extension, TG16/TCD) is something I've considered going for a complete set of, but the prices are just way too high. Same thing stops me from the Saturn and Sega CD.

If it's for your own personal use only, I don't have a problem with repro boxes. Some people prefer the look of a boxed game on their shelf, and can't afford the $8K+ a legit NTSC Stadium Events box goes for.

I have strong issue, though, if one would pass it off as real. It does not make a collection 'all CIB.' If you decide to sell, not expecting any premium for the repro item is fine, and it should be disclosed as such.

Manuals, well... I don't understand the point. A CIB collector won't want them, they don't improve the look of a set on the shelf, and how to play is easily found on the internet. Even scans of many aren't hard to find. I wouldn't waste time or money on those.
