Are there not better things to be concerned about than a copy of Count Ducula!?

Jeez

I thought it was going to be a Gianna Sisters knock-off or something..

I hope nobody buys the game and instead I hope everybody goes to their favorite software store and they buy new copies of it! We need to support the software companies and the authors who are still provding us with new wares. I'm willing to bet that the original publisher of Count Duckula will have a lawsuit filed against that seller very quickly!

How do you know it's a copy? Looks original to me.

NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pirated eBay knock offs of Count Duckula floppy disks is one of the greatest evils of the 21st century and should be punished with extreme lashes! And it's 99p, don't let that eBay seller make untold riches and buy a yacht off the hard working digital 0 & 1s of Count Duckula!

Btw : They at least look like they were copied 'back in the day' (tm). Guess the guy found found them in the attic and thought it might be worth a try to sell them on eBay.

Guys,


Please, stop mocking the original poster, and forget about this guy selling pirated disks.. He is listing copies and originals at the same starting price.. For the 4-5 copies he has listed I am sure there are bigger fish to fry.... Jeez

I can totally accept being mocked by my fellow Amigans . I found the listing funny. Selling a copy of Count Duckula... Still makes me giggle

Besides, it's not likely anyone's going to buy them anyway...

To be fair if he did what everyone else does and listed it as a "blank" or "old Amiga disk" no one would have said anything, especially as it's 99p.
If it had said:
"****RARE*** Amiga COUNT DUCKULA ORIGINAL ONLY 1 IN EXISTENCE WTF! 11ONE1!!ONE!! ONLY £35 CHEAP with box*"

Then maybe we could have moaned about it





*Box not included

Yes but did you see how much he got for a copy of wings?

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Wings-Amiga-50...item1c19158962

You might have to be logged on to see it as it's a completed auction.
