As for carboots, gumtree etc. Just so you know, coming from Bradford you'll have some very tough competition as the (other) site founder and one of our more hardcore collectors live there
hydr0x wrote:Your whole reasoning hinges on the assumption that anyone/he will eventually sell the games again. That is a severely flawed assumption. Collecting does not equal hoarding for potential increase in value. Collecting means amassing stuff. That he could potentially sell an expensive game for more money later on (not even considering that SNES is the current fad and might actually drop in value again) is completely irrelevant if he doesn't intend to sell, it also does not lower the actual costs now. You still need the money to even buy these, no matter if they will double in value soon or not.
