Okay, relaunch!

Well, almost a year on and i've finally found time to add content here. I've spent the last year adding almost 2000 games to my collection, remodelling my games room, and bringing up my son and daughter. My lad is now a firm games fan, and even though he's only 3 1/2 he can play a whole range of retro classics. He likes the Kinect and Wii interfaces, but he's at home with a controller tethered to a slab of retro tech with a two metre cable :)

So, this one caught my eye:

Job Lot Console Gaming Bundle

There are a few interesting aspects to this auction. Firstly, the seller seems to be someone with a shop, or at the very least an ebay shop. Despite this level of assumed professionalism, he's quoting the postage cost at £140!!! A ploy to only attract local buyers? I wouldn't want to box up this lot and phone UPS. Secondly, whilst there's a lot of stuff here- and much of it looks to be in clean condition- there's nothing desirable, rare, or different to what can be found at the local booter. Indeed, i'm certain that I could pick up a collection of this type for <£200 on any given Summer Sunday- indeed, my 2000+ game, 40+ console collection has mostly come from my local car booters, turning up late as we have young kids, but still getting bargains galore.

The seller listed with a reserve of £200, it's now up to £490 with nine hours to go. I bet he's amazed at the price. It would certainly be possible to bundle up £200 worth of retro every couple of weeks during the summer in my local markets. I wonder if I could make £300 every fortnight?
