I feel like I keep seeing sale threads on this board which seem ridiculously high for a machine and then immediately after people will post how they think it's a cheap price and they wish they were closer. The machine will then sit at that price for a few weeks and sometimes longer until they eventually get sold. If you do a quick comparison of the prices listed in these threads compared to pinpedia or bostonpinball, they're 20% + higher. I wish that sellers would be required to list the actual sale price of the machine in the thread so I could get a better feel of what is occurring. I just can't believe that some people are paying crazy money for some B titles.
I understand the whole concept of a machine having higher value if it is shopped, LEDd and condition condition condition. I just wish there was more price transparency in the hobby and since pinpedia and bostonpinball use actual completed sales, how the pinside prices could be so much higher.
