Have you ever heard of supply and demand? They have an inverse relationship; no irrationality needed.


What he was talking about has nothing at all to do with supply and demand. I know you want to be snarky and savvy sounding but think and read before you attempt it.

Ah I see, thanks! But what are the odds they even have stock? I know up here in Vancouver, Canada it is super hard to find one.

But it does. In this case, supply is reduced, future supply is expected to be zero, and the value of the good is tied to its exclusivity. So the good in question is acting very much like a Veblen good, and it makes sense for demand to increase as supply decreases/price increases.

I just checked two local Fred Meyer stores and there weren't any, but they weren't in Vancouver.

Jeez, makes me glad I got this for $30 when I did. >> Good luck to whoever gets it. This collection was a bunch of flagship titles that helped make having a PS1/PS2/PS3 worth having at some point. Now, it's more than worth having on PS3.

This is in stock at the gamestop nearby.  Think it's worth buying used for about $40?  I already have the collection for myself, but if anyone here could use one or if the resell value is high enough I'd be inclined to pick it up.  Plus I have a Buy 2 Used get 1 free that I'm trying to figure out what to buy with

with used also keep in mind that two of the games in the collection are digital so the codes could be used already which will make the set incomplete and might not have the art book with it

This is true, but I doubt VR Missions and MGS1 digital will kill the value since they are easily attainable on PSN as if nothing was missing from the set.  The art book though, we shall see.

 

I ended up finding Twin Snakes for $5 though which is a great find.

 

edit: has the art book.  Anyone want it for price+shipping+gas/tip?

Thought I missed out but I was able to get in a backorder just now. I'm not really an MGS fan but my friends have access to my library and I know at least a couple that would really enjoy playing through these.

I was all excited since I got it to go in my cart and in stock new with prime...  Then I realized I'm not a reseller and it seems to be available enough that if people want it they can have it.

Fun part will be people getting their game damaged due to the padded envelope.

Thanks OP. Bought one for my friend as a gift. I gave him my standalone copy of MGS4 and he loved it, so might as well order for the other games in the set.

That actually doesn't happen often and is usually due to careless shippers when it does -- not the packaging itself. I order hundreds of games and other things that come in similar cases per year in bubble envelopes and I've only ever received two that were damaged. I've received more boxed items that were damaged.

And you had two years to buy this in the form of two different compilations?
