Just the speculation is making a lot of these go up for sale in good condition at prices that are falling. MB would have been $13k and rising without this remake speculation. Now it's $10k and falling which is wonderful and I hope it continues.
The best case scenario will be having to make the agonizing decision of whether to buy an original or the remake at about the same price. Some people love the hunt, but I really loath the hunt and downright hate the competition for these games. Having the cash is not enough. Too many things have to line up to score a game like this.
Picking up the phone, calling CGC and having it shipped to the house without fighting a bunch of other people for it might help me choose the remake, when I really would prefer an original.
