    Apparently something like that. Not sure how true this is, but it's hilarious.

    This is pretty hilarious. I'd be that the guy still has plenty of copies though, if he slowly offloads them on ebay through various accounts he could make a killing.

    Speculation on modern games that can be reprinted is a bad idea like 99% of the time. The only time I considered it on a modern game was when the PS3 copies of Elite 2011 showed up and I had a eyes on it for about $300. Being EA I figured a reprint was unlikely, but also, it was like $300 and I'm not that big of a gambler.

    I get hard every time Discotek releases something that was oop with sky high prices. I envision the scalpers crying. KOR was a big one. Can't wait for City Hunter 3 and 91.

    While that doesn't impact me, I'm glad more people can see it. It's soooo 80s.
