There is an auction on ebay right now for a 1990 Nintendo World Championships Gray cartridge. I'm very interested in seeing how much this game sells for compared to the Gold version. The auction started at $100, which is great. I love low starting price auctions on these really rare games. We really get to see the market price.
Interview About NWC Gold Purchase On Radio
On a side note, I am going to be interviewed tomorrow morning at 10AM EST by a radio station in Iowa about the Gold cartridge I purchased. The hosts of the show are gamers and wanted some more information about the purchase. If anyone is interested you can listen online here. It will be my first time on radio so I'm a bit nervous. It should be fun though.
iPhone App With Video Game Prices
Lastly, a website we worked with for a while (VideoGameTrader.com) launched an iphone app that lets you bring your video game prices with you on the go. The app is $0.99 and you can download it here. We didn't help create the application at all, but we do provide some pricing data for it. The prices are NOT the same as ours so we cannot guarantee their accuracy or even say exactly how they are determined. But we have used it for a while ourselves and think it can be very helpful while you are shopping at flea markets, garage sales, or other places away from your PC.
Right now our price charts don't work with the iphone because they don't have flash support, but we are looking into some different ways to show the charts without flash so iphone users can use all our site's features.
