AKA: I'm declaring psychological warfare on scalpers. Recently I had theorized that many people would be like me and would be so pissed at scalpers they will walk away from what they want out of spite, and therefore the supply of exorbitantly priced NES Classics is far outstripping the demand. There may have been demand during Christmas, but now that the present rush is over the demand has dropped Control: On the first week of January I have checked Kijiji (like Craigslist, but a tad more classy) for all ads listing the NES Classic - eight that were posted November 11 or just after. I found 70, all with prices ranging $200-300, majority $240 or less. Procedure: I replied to every add with an offer for a $50 Toys r us card and a $50 Walmart card (Christmas money from family members unable to locate a NES Classic). Six responded with variations on the word "no," to which i reply noting the number of ads available and my suspicion that they are not moving. No response. Follow up: On the second week I checked Kijiji and found only 35 ads. Prices generally unchanged, but more $200 ads. Procedure: I replied to all ads, with the offer of a $50 Toys r us gift card and $60 cash (I had used the Walmart card). Only one reply with "No." I did not follow up. Procedure: On January 20th I posted a fake ad listing a new in box NES Classic for $180, with a note that i will not accept trades or offers. I received only one response, with an offer for $100 which I politely declined. Follow Up: Today I checked and athe number of ads have dropped to 30, and prices on newer ads have dropped to $160-170, with a singular $150 ad. Hypothesis: It appears that there are not as many buyers for overpriced NES Classics as the scalpers expected, and I have been making progress in bringing awareness to that fact. I am currently re-posting my ad at $160, and I made an offer fro $120 on all ads $200 and up. I will announce any further progress. My goal is to bring the going price to $140, and successfully make an offer for $120. Please note that all units are in Canadian pesos, and the NES Classic retails for $80 here.
