WTF? Someone sells Amiga Homebrew CDs

For example the Mega Drive Collection CD32 from AmigaJay or the free downloadable Deluxe PacMan CD32... Does anyone know more about it? https://www.etsy.com/de/market/cd32

I'm not surprised, they're just taking advantage of the lack of research someone who just searches "amiga" or "cd32" on etsy will do before making a purchase.

Many more amigans, C64 users, SNES fans, whatever kind of retro game/hardware fans, are out there than just the ones who post on forums and know about all of the websites you can use as free resources.

These things regularly pop up on gumtree and ebay too. I've also seen people on FB pages show off their recent purchase and they then seem bewildered when I point out you can download it and burn the disc yourself.

I suppose some people, even with knowledge that you can produce this yourself, still don't mind paying for someone else to do it.

Yeah, just like back in the older times when the PD software houses existed, who were selling PD games and demos for the price of the disks (+ little extra).
