Of all the games on my lengthy “HuCard wish list,” Namco(t)’s Obocchama Kun has, thus far, been the most bashful when it comes to showing its face on eBay.
In fact, the only “complete” (case + manual + slipcase) version of the game I’ve found on the popular auction site–until last night, that is–is used and goes for $45. Uh, no thanks.
So what changed late last night? Well, for starters, I came across a new, sealed copy of the title. Of course, that wouldn’t have meant much if the seller had attached a $60 (or higher) price tag to it, but thankfully that wasn’t the case. Actually, it was quite the opposite–the seller was asking for just $22. Score!
As excited as I am about my most recent acquisition, I think my wallet and I need to take a bit of a break from eBay.
