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.

Lazard analyst Colin Sebastian expects more retailers to start selling used games now Amazon has entered into the market, says a Gamsutra report.
“According to our industry checks, one large consumer electronics retail chain is rekindling efforts to sell used video games, while another general merchandise ‘big box’ store is in trials to buy back games in exchange for store credit,” he said.
Sebastian said that the market sector is worth $2 billion annually in North America, and will further increase competition for the likes of eBay, GameCrazy and GameStop. Add in a 50 percent gross margin and it becomes even more attractive to retailers.
However, as lucrative as that sounds, Sebastian isn’t expecting any newcomers to challenge GameStop’s reign at the top any time soon.

UK retailer GAME is selling a handful of used 60Gb Playstation3s for the princely sum of £349.99 and upwards.
This is £50 more than the new 80Gb model which is heavily rumoured to be hitting UK shores this Friday.
In fact, 60Gb models have been selling for around £400 on Amazon, which, combined with GAME’s high pricing, could mean that backwards compatibility is something people want and are willing to pay extra for.
Just a hunch.

This lot have painstakingly worked out how much you save if you buy all Virtual Console games through your Wii as opposed to buying the real things second hand on eBay. Everyone needs a hobby. Turns out if you buy everything from VC – all 196 games in the US – it’ll cost you $1,325, as opposed to the eBay price of $2,516.59: a saving of almost $1,200.
Which, as the article notes, is great, but you can’t resell VC games. And you can’t hold them in your hands. But to be honest, you’ve just saved $1,200, so who cares?
