    Flippers are a sensitive issue. Both sides have valid points. (I generally hold them as cunts ;) )

    What irks me isn't the initial seller losing out. Tough shit to them. Internet has answers.
    It's that the greedy opportunist means someone who could actually use / enjoy the item misses a great deal.

    Oh, and I'd sell my SGX for that lol.

    Original seller would have really missed out had I not bought it from him. We was gonna part with it for $360 and got $435 from me. Of course that's before ebay bills, but still.

    I think paying a seller their asking price isn't screwing them over. If someone doesn't know what what something is or what they cost new it was likely given to them as a gift... or maybe it's just stolen goods.

    I don't consider the hotel units official hardware. It's no different than taking a system and modifying it so it works in a car, like the car ps2 that is sold by a few places.

    Didn't urisma actually lose money on that 3DS?

    Bought for $420, sold for $440.

    Ebay take around 10%, paypal take 5% = loss?

    Pretty sure they are official, like the famicombox and super famicombox, they're pretty rare but they have different cartridges with official labels that won't work in a non-famicombox setup.

    It comes in a giant box with a Sega-font on it. Any questions? I'd buy it immediately for 58000yen, but I was short on cash in April. Also I guess lingjr might have put in a bid of 1500$ or so, double your money. :p

    The "SGX" logo looks more like SEX. I bet that's what most customers thought until they inserted a coin and realized that it actually is not an obscure "SEX-MACHINE" but a device to play Fighting Vipers with your horny gf at the most inappropriate place :dance:
