Quoted from NorCalRealtor:
Not sure about hat logic. BK3 is great and seems to have renewed interest & demand for the first 2.
I see what you are saying NorCal. I really think most of the under $2000 games from the BK era have seen bumps across the board over the last year. Those are pretty good values now even with the bump. Folks like to work on games also and most of the 90’s BW’s that needed love are drying up, so 80’s it is. I like them for sure. Also BK and SS are in two different big price points apart. SS is $5500ish, so right in the entry level NIB range.
Remember how much DESW and STTNG used to fetch? They went down a bit for a while after Stern SW and ST. STTNG has been steadily creeping its way back up though and is about back to normal. And I am not talking about major drops here just little price adjustments.
And these are apple to orange comparisons old to new game wise. It is kinda like if you like Apples SS and see a nice fresh orange Elvia for sale for around the same price or a little more, that can get delivered easily to you, you may just choose that instead to try something new.
There is no real downside in waiting to see about Elvira 3. I think the original SS price is pretty much capped due to the REmake threat anyway. I really don’t think SS will go up once Elvira comes out, but who knows? If you can afford and want both that would be pretty cool also. SS is good and hope new one is good also.
