Have I overlooked some ultra rare expansion or game?

Yep, upwards of 70 sobs seems well excessive considering that I've been picking them up for as little as a tenner only two months ago.

There's nothing special in the software either to make it worth the moolah.

Aren't you glad auctions are not allowed on Amibay?

@zetro & Meega

Sorry guys I didn't even think, the auction baffled me so much! :oops:

But its a good example of why I avoid that site.

I mean £70 for a bog standard 600 and some games, I gave two of those away last year!! One was even a HD model with a lovely little 1Gb HDD (wish I'd kept them now, obviously they're worth a fortune! :roll: )

You are forgiven - but if I wanted to I'd accuse you of listing an item that isn't your own... :twisted:

There were 15 boxed softwares, and the same amount non-boxed, so I think the buyer was likely after that rather than the hardware. I don't know quite what that would have fetched on its own, maybe quite a bit of the total if split up (hassle, hassle). P+P was set at a very reasonable level though (which makes a change).

The buyer must think it's worth what was bid, else they wouldn't have gone that far.
