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.
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:)
