I would imagine that somebody who pays $1000 for a game makes alot more then $2000 a month.
It has alot to do with having something others cant afford and want, maybe being able to say you have a complete collection.
I buy games to play. When I got GODS for the atari ST still in shrink wrap the first thing I did was open the box. Most people buy the old games to look at, I want to play them.
