He sells a copy of a game for 0.99p starting bid, so what?
Maybe some people had this game as a child, and just want to play it without doing ADF hassle and so on? Why be so negative about it?
"Oh no, they are trying to sell a COPY (!!) of a game where no profit is made this very day".

How many people in the day when the Amiga was in its prime copied games off friends and sold them for a few $ a disk!? Quite a few that's for sure so if someone does it on ebay when the Amiga is dead how is that different or worse?

I'm not trying to say what the guy is doing is right but i do think we can be a little self righteous.

Take Turrican 2 for example. A good majority of people on here think it was one of the Amiga's best ever games and although i myself bought the original when it came out, how many of us here revere the team behind the Turrican series only to not reward them for it by buying it?.

Here most Amiga games were available only as copies. I never sold any my copy, always swapping.

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

What a wanka! Why sell copied Amy games on Ebay?

Perhaps he should use the following template to print out proper disk labels -

That was a complete no-no among me and the people I knew. There was one guy at a job I used to have who tried to hock some PSX and PC warez. Everybody just laughed at him.

While I'm not justifying even the friendly copying/swapping, atleast we never charged money for stuff. That shit is just 100% disgraceful. If I found out someone I knew would have done that I'd probably deny him anything in my diskbox.

And whoever bought that Wings copy from eBay for £21 is a complete moron. You'd get the original for less.
