The supplier that Intellivision Productions used to get them from sold out when - according to Keith - one company / person bought what they had left, which was something around 400 Flashbacks. No idea what they paid for them, but I imagine it wasn't much if they were buying that many at once. Maybe these are the ones now appearing on eBay?

If that's the case ,I really hope no one purchase's any so they drop the prices.

Not sure if it works that way. More likely, interested parties see sources drying up and prices increasing, so they pounce in fear of missing out. If they don't, someone else will. Supply and demand.

Are they ? Even the 2nd one listed?

 

The second one is a legit NES Mini - but after-market hacked to have more games.  It's really easy to add more games to one - you can even turn an NES Mini into an SNES Mini or vice versa. (Although if you do the NES-to-SNES route, you'd better pick up the SNES controllers, too.)  I have a SNES Mini that I've loaded a bunch of extra games on to, and have it "dual-boot" between NES mode and SNES mode. As mentioned, the real NES mini has 30 games, the real SNES mini 21.

Supplemental Overlay Set sold at auction for $82. I wonder if the price for these is finally dropping from former highs. Still a crazy ROE.

I bought 3 sets when they first came out, was thinking of reselling a couple at those prices but they were all missing Soccer so technically incomplete. Doh!

those poor sheiks - sorry emirs

 

(could it be? ....nah, never)

 

very unkind

Virgin does not deliver to any residence outside of the United Arab Emirates.

 

not only that we can't buy them - how many they will have in stock and they will never leave the emirates?

they are really greedy!

(can they at all read latin letters? whatfor they need them? shall play domino or someting)

 

we need a commando, immediately call the president.

This one just sold for for US$25. You don't see auctions like this too often.

I noticed that too ... except calculated shipping to me was over $30, negating any savings. I don't think that's the actual price, just someone playing games with prices. 

 

I wish this machine would go back into production just so we'd have a good source for replacement controllers. Still $60 or so it's terrible, just not cheap. 

 

If I can find one for $20 for real, I'll ship it to Byte Knight for the "Ultimate" treatment.
