Quoted from pmWolf:
That's why this CV won "Best in Show" at PaTZ a month ago.
I've seen the game. It is absolutely spectacular. Anybody who went to PaTZ knows how phenomenal this CV is
You and John (like myself) have been in this long enough, what do you think this game will actually sell for? My guess? 6k (Maybe 6500 if lucky). That is taking into account the inflated crazy prices as of late.
Why would someone as experienced as John throw out such a high number to start? John usually prices his machines about 30% higher than the market in which they actually sell, and then he moves them at the actual "trading hands" prices where the market actually is.
What I am getting at is, why is this machine $9500 compared to his usual listings? It is one thing if he asks exhorbant prices on everything he sells, but that is not his established baseline. Based on the brief description and the few pictures, there is nothing to show this machine other than a "very nice" CV, which is what it looks like. What separates this very nice CV from other very nice CVs for many thousands less?
Seriously not price policing, John can ask whatever he wants, but there really is no detail to show people what makes this machine the exception the rule. I think a lot of people know John and the volume of pins he moves, and that is probably why there is a lot of buzz about this particular asking price, seems like we are all missing something here....
