 Here is links to the games:
 
Wonderboy, Last Duel, Best of Elite Vol.1, Best of Elite Vol.2
I don't think they are that rare and they are TAPE-GAMES!  ;D

Some CPC games on eBay Australia as "Buy It Now" for $99.90 (70 euros) each!!!

Too expensive for me, I wonder if they will sell.


 
  Considering I downloaded Wonderboy off NVG and played it on my CPC 6128 I think I've done alright. Best of Elite - I was buying most of the decent Encore stuff about 3 for £5 a bit over a decade ago!  ;D  Last Duel is a bit Substandard! Anyway's I'm puzzled how this stuff could be going for so much when it's all there on the net as Tape Images, Disk Images, original Disc Images on file. True you get the box and manual. They wouldn't want to sell a copy of Xenon for a mint on Ebay, for me the only thing I found CPC relevant was the Disc and "Amstrad CPC Disc" orange sticker stamped on the front of the box! The Manual was almost useless!  :(  Couldn't even tell me how to load the game on my CPC!  ???
* Using some of the hardly used Amstrad compilers :D
* I use Firmware in my Assembly code :P
* Have interpreted some BASIC 1.1 programs for BASIC 1.0. :)

It’s a 6128 shrouded in a veil of mistery!

Any good for anyone? A lot there, 2 disk drives and a whole pile of magazines for someone who might want physical copies!


The disc drives alone seem to go for £150 plus on ebay! Madness!

Not a bargain at all. This is really expansive. But ok, if you're willing to pay. Good luck.

Well it was about £50 when I linked it. There must be serious collectors of this stuff out there somewhere. You'd think 30 year old computers  would be selling for peanuts!!

It was at £54 when you posted - but yesterday the bids suddenly jumped from £92 to £200, the £200 bid came in on the 12th?
I'm pretty new to Ebay so could someone explain how an earlier bid like that appears.

Cheers,

Peter

Thanks Audronic.

The £200 bid is from z**l, the earlier bids are from 1**l - is this a different bidder?
And why the big jump from £92 to £200?

Cheers,

Peter

28 Disks for €255 is only €9.10 per disk or €10 per disk including postage. That's actually below the average selling price of an original commercial disk.

I would say the three tools disks (I never seen them before, but I don't really follow uk auctions)

- Cherry paint
- Doddle disc (damned, there is a physical copy tool inside, hope the winner will dump it !)
- Handy man

Other utilities are interesting too, but they are loose disks (not really fun as documentations are really
useful to use tools) :-(

Is good to see new software being unearthed after so many years, definately hope someone will dump them but I guess that end up devaluing their purchase.  I think if the likes of the mythical chq came up again it would be good to purchase, dump resell, then the dump released.

I really, really, REALLY never understood that argument. The value is inherent to the physical item, it's not like collectors are going to back away from an ultra-rare item because it has been dumped. Like the recent discussion about that arcade machine that got dumped illegaly somehow. Hoarding the code is just plain stupid.

A dump is for preservation... That will never decrease the physical version. The invert, it can make it popular and increase the resell value.
By the way, I know who have won the auction and it is more the opposite of "TheOppositeOfJesus" !  ;D
