€1 million games collection sold on eBay

Tuesday, 10th July 2012 06:33 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Just so you know what the cool kids are talking about: somebody offered their simply enormous games collection on eBay and sold it for a whopping €1 million. The listing included 22 fullsets – complete collections of games released over a system’s lifespan – as well as massive piles of accessories and oddities. It’s worth a bit of a drool over before the listing expires.

Thanks, GameInformer.

    Yeah well, the trick is actually getting the winner to pay. $10 says the games will be relisted because of a nonpaying bidder.

    Anyway, as far as buying/saving on eBay goes:

    If you see an item that you want listed in auction format, send the seller a message asking if they will accept $x to end the auction early and sell the item to you. If that doesn’t work, use a sniping service such as Bidball.com to bid for you. It’ll bid in the last few seconds, helping to save $ and avoid shill bidding.

    If there is a particular item that you want that is relatively rare on eBay or goes fast when one is listed, use ebuyersedge.com to set up a saved eBay search for it. You’d get an e-mail whenever a match is listed. You can use the price, category, exclude word, etc. filters to narrow down the results that you get in the e-mails. Excellent for “Buy It Now”s priced right.

    If the item that you’re looking for is difficult to spell, try a misspelling search site like Typojoe.com to find some deals with items that have main keywords misspelled in the title. Other interested buyers may never see them.
