Anyone need a replacement gx4000 burning rubber cartridge?  Yours for a bargain £160.50.  The seller has generously included free postage.

I've never seen that Very Rare edition, and sadly he does not even ship to France.
Too bad I can't add it next to my Extremely Rare (tm) burnin' rubber cartridge version. :laugh:

Free postage is probably the 0.50 in the price 😁

Well it probably would have been 200 if he had gone to the bother of cleaning it first, so I'd say Bargain! go for it!.

Why did this game sell for so much money, its frankly quite rubbish and isn't that rare.

Oh wow. Though quality doesn't have much to do with price :)

I'm relatively new to Ebay so does "Ended" actually mean someone paid that price, or did the seller just end the auction when they realized  no one was going to cough up that outrageous amount?

I think it means someone bought it, otherwise it says "not available" or something...

It was definitely sold for that price, there were 24 bidders. It could only be ended without a sale if it had zero bidders or ebay says "Auction ended by seller" (for which you have to give reasons).

Cheers,


For that kind of money I would expect a 6128 Plus to go with the cart!

All this retro stuff seems to be getting more expensive.  Prices of gx4000 have been rising recently too they all seem to be plus 100 now.  I would really like a copy of robocop 2 and switch blade but switch blade seems to be outrageously priced with a few listed for 80 quid. Robocop 2 isn't much better.

As a registered business seller I think distance selling rules apply and one could reasonably expect it to work if described as very good in the descriptive and it turns out not to actually work even if the seller puts a disclaimer to say it may not work.  For nearly 300 quid I really hope for the buyer it works.  It's a shame prices are so high as I would quite like a few more genuine cartridges but I guess it's supply and demand, with the demand cleanly outstripping the supply.

Saw this on the bay https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/184330881703


Looks very pricey considering the games aren't original boxed copies.
