Fix the NEW Sealed $ = it is lower than "loose" in Dreamcast

Anonymous 4 years ago updated by sales 3 years ago 2

Your pricing on some rare games makes no sense - for instance Bang-O NEW sealed copy is less than a loose price. Obviously this makes no sense and your system should recognize this. Don't use any price would be better - although I found examples offered on games on Amazon. This is a bad flaw, and really hurts the credability of your site.

We are monitoring prices on a daily basis to remove junk listings (the root cause) and fix price inversions like you mentioned. We want to fix these whenever possible.


Tig makes a very good point though about games with old sales data.


The last sale might have been years ago. We can either use that as the price, or we can extrapolate how much the game might be worth today instead. The 2nd option is fraught with inaccuracies so we decided to go with option 1 and show users the sales history.

I understand what you're saying because I've seen that on here but in other cases, there is an added bit of complexity b/c you have to consider the date when the purchase was made. A new copy of "Rare Game X" last sold in 2013 might be the same price as the same game simply CIB, or even loose, today.
