@okwordyoda, I understand the internet is available to pricers, I personally just wish they would use it more effectively. As to why we assume Amazon is used prominently, while it may be anecdotal, we have been told by the pricers themselves that is what they used. As most CAGs know, the actual sold price on ebay is much more accurate than asking prices on amazon marketplace.
Overall, I am really not complaining too much. The same practices that result in a few high prices also produce a few gems and those are really what we all care about.
@BudzMcGee, to be fair on Bully Scholarship, if it was for the 360, a complete copy still consistently sells for close to $40 shipped on ebay (one certainly can pay less). If it was priced last year, demand was even higher. Before Christmas, they were pushing past $50. I just checked ebay for Marvel Ultimate Alliance Gold and $50+ selling prices are common.
