    if i try to buy one of theese in here, people ask for 50 euros easy because it's "vintage" and "collectors" and "it cost me a lot of money back in 1990s, so it must be still worth loads of money"

    controllers at 4 bucks.. look at that...
    oh, in here it will be also about 20-30 bucks because "it's an official controller" and "only one key is badly functioning"

    Yeah it looks like one of those charity shops like Goodwill. They put stuff really cheap because it looks old. I got a bunch of like-new N64 controllers for $3.99 a piece not that long ago from a Goodwill store. Nintendo branded ones, at that and the analog sticks weren't worn down to nothing.

    for that small prices i would be more than happy to give 5 or more bucks extra as donation...
    it's really awfull that theese things are only in america.. i would love to buy games accesories and plenty of retro stuff and even help charity...

    in where i live, people are too greedy it's really awfull to buy something
    there is a store in my area that is still selling DSI and DS Lites for their full price, i could use a extra ds lite or even a dsi, but no way i am gonna pay the same price as a N3ds

    Why would this make you sad? You can own it for less than most people pay at fast food places for a meal.

    yep...
    like i explained in the bottom of the picture, in here a store would sell it for 30 euros at minimum...
    and in ebay alike websites, people advertise it as "collectors item" or "vintage" and won't sell for less than 50 bucks

    my friend has a mega drive in his attic abandoned, i asked him to buy it from him, wanted 50 bucks for it, i asked for 10 bucks arguing it was abandoned, it was a fair price, the console was old etc..., he give me the speech "back them i gave 200 bucks for it, i will not sell it for that low"

    The irony being, of course, that you obviously read his post in order to feel prompted to make that response :P
