This has always happened. Either they can't get to a store, not aware or bothered to shop around for couple quid cheaper deals or some people in EU can't order from GAME or Amazon and use eBay resellers.

The prices aren't mental the people who buy them are.
#3
The older consoles like the nes are high in demand for people using the cases for projects so even the none functioning ones will sell for £20+.
As for the newer consoles not sure.
#4
The older consoles I can understand from a retro point, I have dabbled myself with a pristine snes and megadrive recently but the newer ps4 etc, the prices being bidded are odd as they have access to the Internet but choose to buy secondhand instead from eBay. oO

Same as people voting hot for deals on here when they've been cheaper in the past. Put a Wii u console only deal on here for £169 and I guarantee it'll go hot despite better deals years ago.

Didn't they stop manufacturing the Wii u and moved production onto the switch ready for release?
I heard the stock of them dropped like crazy within the last month or two.

I think the retro consoles are pretty cheap on the whole. Many of them can be bought for sub-£50 with games and controllers. Some cracking games can be bought for peanuts too.

Nah, all these high prices are because people just want to use there pay pal money up.

People are willing to pay high prices so let 'em. What was the question?

Pretty much the same except for the Amazon part.

I've been buying old stock of a certain console for cheap from Amazon and then reselling on eBay. To be fair, I always auction at starting 99p so I'm being just.

People decide how much they want to pay for it and that's fine with me.
