As for your claims about collecting, it's 100% incorrect. I have collected video games for over 20 years and while I am sure many of my games could be sold for more than I paid for them, lots of them sell on Ebay and elsewhere for far less than I paid at the time, especially when you consider time value of money and opportunity cost. So, to me, the fact that my collection is or isn't worth more than I paid is irrelevant as I wouldn't sell it because it's something I really enjoy. Like many collectors, I collect as a hobby, not to make a profit or in the vain hope that my collection will become my retirement fund someday.
I could care less about the flipping or resale market. This is a site devoted to finding cheap games, all the reselling talk has nothing to do with that and really just needs to stop. Maybe the resellers can start their own site and that way they can talk all they want about it. I don't even care if they regularly steal every post from here to find deals, I'm just sick of wading through an ocean of flipping and resale and Ebay talk to find out about deals.
I been saying for awhile staff need to eventually do something other wise they will reverse the fact that the premise of this site is to buy cheap video games.
Lately what is happening is people price gouge people that missed a deal.
You're not going to have a cheap ass site for games when you have resellers coming in and buying stupid amounts of copies to throw on ebay and then for teh one guy who was busy that day or had work etc now has to get priced gouged by the scalpers.
