    People are finding that Gamecube is a great machine with some great exclusives. No surprises to me.

    Backwards compatibility with Wii, which sold WAY more units, didn't help matters for the software prices.

    Unrelated: This guy on "social distancing" and "escape" is a dweeb. And I'm spending less time gaming, so his "social distancing" gaming assumption is just self imposed delusion. There is a rumor going around about this and game prices. I think that it's just because a lot of people are taking advantage of extra time off of work.

    Also, a lot of games are in development for systems that don't even exist right now, rather than making games for current consoles. Of course people would be buying up things to play on older consoles. A lot of things going on right now.

    Maybe that's what you do, but the trends are there for why the game prices are rising. People aren't just going to boxing class and buying games in between sessions. Or doing some tricks on their skateboard and thinking, "Hmm, that Thousand Year Door looks like a good purchase right about now!"

    This is what I feel is related to the recent trends:

    --"Stay at Home order" / Pandemic
    --Stimulus Checks for those who qualify = more money to spend recklessly or spend wisely? Up to the person!
    --Recent game announcements reinvigorating previous games in a series (Fire Emblem, Paper Mario, etc)

    I think backwards capability has little to do with it. Trends are from this past Spring, which.....OMG PANDEMIC CRAZE!!!!!?????????? Yep.

    In other news, bicycle sales are THROUGH THE ROOF!

    Would this be considered a second print since its official?

    Nah, official doesn't mean much. I give it as much merit as https://pceworks.wordpress.com/

    Just because you have 20 gallons of hand sanitizer and wear your mask in the car doesn't mean that everyone else does.

    I'd consider it a second print in a way since it has the blessing or the original IP holder, while PCEWorks is just a bunch of stolen bootleg IP.

    The more discerning question though could be is it blessed by Nintendo? Because originally Nintendo made the PCBs and did the manufacturing for all the games right? Who knows what kind of quality control Limited Run has for making their "new" carts.
