View Full Version : This guy must be on crack!

Not only is the starting price W-A-Y over the top, but dig that crazy Buy It Now figure! As if! And even then, one of the games (TV Sports Boxing) is not even the Amiga version. PLUS, he's not even kicking in for the shipping. And the King Of Chicago box is crushed (which is why it's laying down!)
Like I said, this guy's on crack. Anyone who pays this much money for this very incomplete and generic bundle deserves what they get. Every one of those games turns up on ebay all the time and I wouldn't call any of them "rare"!
He's trying to get money to score on his next CRACk deal perhaps ;) I've got all of these titles so I wouldn't want them, although I too have a crushed King of Chicago box :)
As for the TV Sports Boxing, it does appear to be a blue PC label not the normal Amiga label at all :(

Hey, he's probably just short on air in those Austrian mountains! :D
...and he wants the buyer to cover costs for conversion and so on! Oh my... :shocked

Boahh, UNBELIEVEABLE !!
He must have been confusing old Austrian schillings with dollars after drinking some bottles of whine....
That price is higher than the games cost new 10 years ago !!
What a shame for my country :(
I know, let's get together and help this poor fellow out:
Get a single packet of Swiss Miss hot chocolate and send him on his way :D
ripp off merchants..... almost as bad as charging big bucks for emulation CDs

LOL! what a nutter :laugh
This guy is obviously no amiga enthuisiast. We think this guys on crack, but what about if anyone actually bids on it!!! I have seen all these games on Ebay at 1 time or another and i could probably have bought all of these for about £30 including postage. What a rip off merchant!
I have really begun to think that many sellers on eBay are nothing but greedy ass crooks. Seems to me this has become the new craze, at least here in the states and may even go beyond gambling in sales :eek Just look at what kind of crap is being sold on eBay now, human body parts not withstanding :laughing

From what i have seen of Ebay/Qxl etc nothing but a bunch of robbing swines selling knackerd faulty gear etc!
Not to Mention the *unt selling Amiga emu cd for 25 pounds Geez he wants his arse kicked! to top it off the Cheeky swine wants post paid too.
Seems he's putting Winuae or Winfellow on the cd, kickstart roms and the bloody game roms he wants busting Can't be too sure but looks that way.
I would have taken down his name but sure u will all find and i just restored system backup.
Also saw another Amiga emu cd for 7 quid and post extra again robbery but not on the same scale as the above guy.
I was thinking of Doing an Amiga Emu Cd comp ie 2 cd's with Emu on 1 cd and games etc on the other with proper disclaimers etc for like 5 pounds Inc post but even then, with you good guys round here felt a little guilty so scrapped it. But these guys turned my stomach!
