Yep, I  agree HOWEVER while the seller is definitely an asshat the problem really starts when you get the uninformed guy who sees an auction like this and takes it at face value, perhaps as many do he has far more disposable cash then common sense or knowledge and so he actually buys the damn thing. Driving the market up by sending the message that outrages prices like this are "ok"  :mellow: I blame the buyers just as much as the sellers.  :fyou:

Maybe he's confused pricing with the original limited release cartridge?
