eBay

Damn, you really can buy just about anything on eBay. Today there's a whole freakin' videogame store on the website, priced now at $30,000. So what does your $30k buy? You get either the active store, located in Grand Junctio...
The eBay seller of this wooden NES setup calls it a sculpture. I'd say it was more like some strange kind of interpretative art as both the A and B buttons and the Select and Start buttons on the controller are switched. The ...
I can't even... what is... why in the... sigh. Yesterday we told you about a NES that was on eBay for a minimum bid of $35,000. The seller, ronald3868, said he needed the money to pay his bills and that the NES was the only t...
$35,000, Buy It Now! Dude's on crack. You could buy a small house in the midwest with $35k. You could buy a fantastic automobile for $35k. And he's asking the same for a Nintendo Entertainment System? It does come with 42 gam...
Wait, what?  As unbelievable as it sounds, the DLC preorder characters from Transformers: War for Cybertron are currently for sale on eBay, and are actually raking in some mad bank. Shockwave, Jazz and Demolisher, previo...
How much would you pay for a really terrible videogame? Not much? What if it was a really terrible basketball videogame? Possibly even less? What if it was a really terrible basketball videogame of which there are only three...
Jeeeesus. That right there, my friends, is a person getting very rich off of a purchase she made 20 years ago and forgot about. Seller vals2girlz just sold a completely factory sealed, mint condition, NTSC version of Stadium ...
I never knew this. Stadium Events, that rare NES game by Bandai, could be kinda...not...rare if you get the PAL version. The NTSC version hit the US, but then was discontinued, making it more rare. Blog Video Game Price Chart...
I was at the local used game store yesterday and was eyeballing one of those silly Chinese all-in-one systems that have all the cartridge slots you'd ever need to play all your old games. It was $35. $35. Even then, I was pac...
I never actually knew these existed, but now that I do, I want them! Unfortunately, anybody who wishes to own these metal DOOM miniatures will need to shell out a good few bucks. Most of them are currently on eBay for no less...
Has this ever happened before? Just like the headline says, a man put his Steam account for sale on eBay, essentially beating the system and finding a way to sell secondhand games via the digital distribution platform. It app...
Seriously? I mean, seriously?  The free Avatar Chocobo pet codes that Square Enix gave away to anybody who promoted Final Fantasy XIII online have apparently become huge commodities on eBay. This of course lends itself t...
Take PlayStation RPG epic Final Fantasy VII, knock it down to 8-bits, translate it to Chinese, and then throw it on a cartridge, and you'll have something like this somewhat collectible piece of crap. It's got Advent Children...
Four sets of retro Matt Hazard memorabilia have shown up on eBay. The seller, who is totally some random dude and not at all selling the stuff in the name of marketing, is going the respectable route: all earnings go straight...
Melted Xbox 360 as art? What a concept. "Mixed media," the artist calls it. Microwave melted, studded with eyeballs and laced with phallic, veiny things. Really, who wouldn't want it? And at $31,002,  it's an absolute st...
Remember that realistic Piranha Plant statue? Of course you do, you're still having nightmares of the thing chasing you down the street. It turns out that that statue was part one in a series of more realistic looking Nintend...
Jordan Knight, Jonathan Knight, Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg, and even Danny Wood wouldn't buy this piece of crap. Sure, it's a piece of gaming history, but it's also just some glossy paper taped around a box. What it's sup...
Quick, as of this posting you only have 7 dagen and 21 uren to win yourself the largest Lego Mario in the world. In case you're wondering why I'm speaking in Netherlandese (yes, I am well aware that isn't a real language) it'...
First off, what's with the arbitrary extra $100 on the $20,000? Cheeseburgers for a month or something?The rarest game ever (or so they say) is the Nintendo Campus Challenge 1991 for the Nintendo Entertainment System. JJGames...
Mario somehow packed on a few pounds for the Genesis version of Super Mario World. In this rare, illegal port, Mario also walks funny while he's carrying...why is he carrying crates? Oh, and it looks like he's modified his f...
DJ Hero turntable controllers and Xbox 360 demo discs have made their way to eBay... and nobody is buying!That could of course be chalked up to the fact that the starting bid for one failed auction was $300... close...
If you thought that Activision was bad when it came to game prices, you should take a look at the scalpers who are currently charging ridiculous prices for Modern Warfare 2: Prestige Edition. The limited edition package, whic...
It's like retro on top of retro! If the Atari game Missile Command wasn't retro enough, how about a Missle Command vinyl soundtrack? This rare 33 RPM, 12" vinyl LP from the 1980s contains the score [hah!] to this classic...
The dedication of fanboys knows no bounds, but this Xbox-inspired footwear would test the resolve (and wallet) of even the most dedicated "Xbot." These custom shoes are not officially endorsed by Nike or Microsoft, ...
I've always wanted a Sega Mega Jet, though I could never tell you why. It's just a unwieldy controller with a Genesis/Mega Drive built in. It's got a d-pad, six buttons, and a cartridge hole in the top. But no screen. You'll ...
I am extremely emotional today. Not only is the long awaited RetroforceGIVE! Mega Drive charity auction finally live on eBay, but when I think about the amount of stuff you all donated to make this happen it gets me rather te...
If 50 Cent pulled out a rocket launcher and started tearing up the Middle East over a crystal covered skull, wait until he gets a load of this -- a Wii covered in Swarovski crystals. Decorated with 20,000 crystals, the consol...
Just in case the release of Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection isn't quite nostalgic enough for you, the publisher has announced that an incredibly limited run of vinyl soundtracks are now available through eBay. Yes, a prop...
Legendary game maker Shigeru Miyamoto has the touch of gold not only in videogames, but also in signed game merchandise.DS Phat systems go for next to nothing at my local game trading shops, but this one would probably pull i...
Yes, that's right, someone is offering their achievement whoring services on eBay. Lucky patrons of this amazing deal will get to pay a total stranger to play games instead of them doing all that hard work. What a bargain!eBa...
Yes, you read that right: 5 with four zeros.Used in the 1994 Nintendo World Championships II competition, this extra rare Super Nintendo -- only 32 were made -- is selling on eBay for fifty grand. What makes it so special, yo...
A gold-colored Commodore 64 sold on eBay yesterday for an absurd £2650. The collectible model is said to be one of only a few hundred in the world. They were made in 1986 to celebrate the production of one million C64s....
Squaresoft fans: You've been a bit outspoken lately due to the direction the company has been taking as Square Enix, but you know you've got a soft spot for the classic Squaresoft titles. If you're the real deal, you've got c...
Capcom has a rather interesting way of reviewing its market to find out which of its old franchises could do with a remake. It checks eBay to find out which games are the hottest property. "To choose titles to revive, we...
What's better than a cool looking but ultimately useless vintage NES peripheral? Why, a large quantity of them, of course. That's the theory from Ebay user andyarcade, who currently has an auction up for 39 Famicom Power Glov...
I'm not sure what annoys me more: the fact that this poor guy was duped by some jerk who decided to sell him a $400 chunk of firewood, or that the writer from ABC calls the item "A Wii game" repeatedly in her articl...
It seems that most of us have moved on from the Gameboy Advance SP by now. I think it was a high point in Nintendo's portable gaming history, and it had the most amazing battery life. But we've moved on since then, right? Eve...
Game auction blog gameSniped features several gaming collector item auctions in a recent post, but the highlight is a prototype controller for the unreleased (duh) SNES CD development kit. For the reasonable pr...
Are you a charitable female that resides in the greater Raleigh/Durham area of North Carolina? Are you free on the night of December 9th? No, I'm not trying to pick you up -- I'm trying to hook you up with an Epic Games progr...
