Change the Date Range on Index Charts

We display a chart of the average price for all vintage game consoles so collector's can see where the market is heading for a particular console.

We've updated these charts to let you edit the date range that is displayed.

By default the chart will display all data available.

You can drag the left and right dongles at the bottom to adjust the time frame.

This can be very helpful for seeing the most recent data, or seeing seasonal variations like the Wii chart below. Price increase every holiday season.

Play around with a few (NES, SNES, Wii, Sega CD) and give us your feedback below.

eBay Gives Sellers Good BIN Price Causing Fewer eBay Sniper Listings

Users of our eBay Game Sniper might have noticed a recent drop in the number of Buy It Now listings that show up. A few of you have even contacted us asking about the issue.

The lower number of listings is caused by eBay adding a suggested Buy It Now price to their Selling process.

The screenshot above shows what ebay says when you try to sell Earthbound for $1.00. eBay will say your price is lower than the average price and give you a suggested price.

This change means the seller gets a better price and eBay gets more fees, but buyers will find fewer great deals.

Our Sniper still finds some great BIN deals throughout the day from people who ignore eBay suggestion or where eBay's suggestion is not very good.

The Sniper still finds auction deals too. Auctions with prices below the expected price and less than 2 minutes to go.

The Sniper will still find great deals for those who are patient, but it won't find quite as many as it once did.
