SubjectCould someone explain Atari 2600 (2nd hand stores) pricing ? Reply to this message

I was shopping at a local 2nd hand gaming store and saw Popeye for the Atari 2600, $3.99, not bad, better than EBAY as no shipping is involved, then I saw E.T. for the 2600, $4.99.

What the frag? E.T. is NOT rare, it is NOT even a good game, and the store wanted $1 more for it than Popeye? and then I found Pitfall (which I purchased) for $1.99...

Now there's no freaking way Pitfall isn't as good as Popeye or E.T., and I'd think Pitfall didn't have as many copies at ET, which is priced higher than both games, more common, and a crappy game as well...

I could understand that maybe popeye isn't as common as pitfall, maybe someone would want popeye as a collectors item, but this pricing comes off as weird to me.

I would have priced E.T. @ $0.99-$1.99, Pitfall @ $2.99 - $3.99, and Popeye @ $4.99...
