Quoted from MrMikeman:
Don't believe the hype and do your own research. Prices have been dropping on pretty much all machines. Canadian collectors can't let go of the BS COVID pricing. They can't because many couldn't really afford the games but they used the "it will go up in value" excuse to justify their purchase. They also like to use the "but you'll pay GST if you import" reason for overcharging. Used prices need to be compared without taxes. Apples to apples right?
There are some for sale on marketplace right now - however just like any other marketplace, these are ASKING prices and don't necessarily reflect market value, otherwise they'd sell immediately. They are listed at 15k and up ASKING price. That's about 19k CAD. If you look at the games that actually sold on marketplace, most didn't sell at that price. One did sell at 15k a month ago.
It's up to you to decide if it's overpriced for the market at this time and you just need to be patient. Let the seller sit on his game for a while until he adjusts his price. Or move on to something else. Or pay what he wants!
This post right here.
The market is not what it was even 3 months ago.
A handful of Deadpool Le's are listed right now ranging from $14-16k and none of them are selling. Only one that sold was one that dropped to an asking price of $13k and the guy knew he had to drop to catch people's attention.
A rush le just sold here in Canada for $15,800 because that's where it should be.
Watching the market asking prices is a very bad indicator of what's actually transpiring.
Especially with new games getting announced all the time and a new stern on the short horizon a lot of people are holding off.
Production is catching up steadily on most, and lots of distributors are finding themselves sitting on games that just aren't selling as fast as they once were.
I'm gonna stop typing my wall of text, but it's easy to see the market has softened. Unfortunately a lot of people who dropped big money in the last year are going to feel losses on the inflated prices they paid because patience wasn't their fortitude.
