Hey guys . Recently my xbox 360 died and instead of this getting me down i started playing my old gamecube . Now i wanted to pick up a good long RPG so i headed to Ebay . I found the games i wanted to buy were more than some new xbox games . Here is a link to one of them . I mean 40 quid for a old gamecube game .... jesus .
What do you think about charging so much for these games .

Yes, PAL versions of out-of-print rare-ish Gamecube games are going to be a bit pricey. That works out to $60 US dollars.

If I were you, I would buy a gamecube Free Loader, and buy US copies of games. Even including the shipping, the US version is about 1/3 of the price. I did this for a few Japanese games that I have, and they work fine. Just make sure you have a 2nd memory card for imported games.

Hah. For that price, you could buy a Dreamcast, and pirate the original game, and maybe have change left over to buy it officially.
