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.

3 Nintendo 3DS Limited Editions Released in 15 Day Period

During the 15 day period from the end of September to October 10th 2014, Nintendo is releasing three different limited edition 3DS consoles.

Nintendo released the Super Smash Bros Red and Blue Limited Edition consoles at the end of September for $199.

(I love the art design!)

The Red Smash Bros 3DS is selling for $250 already.

The Blue version is selling for a bit less than retail price.

It looks like the Red console is the one most sought after by collector's at this point.

On October 10th, Nintendo is releasing a Nintendo NES version of the 3DS. It is a GameStop exclusive.

Every other limited edition Nintendo 3DS released so far sells for substantially more than it's original price.

They are awesome items to have in a collection and they are very safe in terms of keeping their value.
