Not much point arguing with you elvis as you're quite the expert in this area. My quick thoughts though: Supply and demand dictates though, that stuff that is no longer made literally is limited edition. Memory may be failing me here, but weren't most consoles approx AUD100-200 at their time of release? Pretty sure my first console (the original SMS) was $89.95 sort of thing, when they were freely available in every shopping centre in Australia. Which is apparently about $160 in today's money, Google tells me. Should we expect to pay less now for the same thing, when we want it just as much now as we did then? I dunno. Tell me if I'm being foolish. That said, there are always unscrupulous profiteers squelching around any commercial activity.
