Damn good price but not that surprised, the large amounts of new retro collectors are really pushing up prices. I've seen a massive increase of retro fairs and other events locally here and having gone to a few i have been amazed at some of the prices, but if people will pay it then who can blame them for charging it. Needless to say i haven't purchased a thing yet but them i am a cheapskate and enjoy hunting down the bargains.

In that pack Shenmue II is arguably worth around £70 on its own, that's over a quarter.

You could have sold it for $1000, and you still would have lost HAHAHAH. just kidding. I would never sell my dreamcast. I have 2 just in case one dies. If you can get a sucker to pay double for something you got than all power to you. I would do the same :). then buy another and still have a profit.

Dreamcasts, xboxs, and I think Gamecube stuff is starting to go up a little.

dont even think about starting collecting for Turbo Grafix 16 or Neo Geo stuff. that is getting crazy right now.

:o Sacrilege!!!
I agree with those who have mentioned that Shenmue II was a big part of your sale. All the retail games actually are just going to keep going up in price due to limited availability.

Exactly, why I don't sell to my stuff to people like that (collectors and serious buyers only)

I'd rather keep something if I knew was gonna get trashed by some idiot (adults are to blame and not just kids) especially with vintage hardware.

Problem is, people automatically assume something is rare because it's like a 10-15 year old game now and then decide to whack double the price than what it's worth. Also, retro gaming has become popular now, so it's another thing, the leechers and scaplers decide on to make a pretty penny with potential vulnerable buyers.

I'm glad I started collecting hardware/software years ago when it was not so popular, as I'd hate to start now because of the aforementioned above:)

Could be two years ago saw some guy buying a DC console for $60CDN at a retro games shop here in Toronto. These Dreamcasts are getting up there in value for sure.
