yeah - I've noticed that, being an avid collector since long, I've been following the 'retro-scene', since mid-90's (when games/consoles/computers started being 'retro' and the interest-groups started gathering, with regards to 'preserving the past', as it were)

there's been some crazy times with people (ab)using eBay in various ways to drive the prices of certain games up, way beyond what's been reasonable; not to mention how many pirate-carts, etc. are floating around out there

of course, the main issue is that for those of us who actually enjoy playing all those games, suddenly we have to pay 3-4x the actual value, just because there's a bunch of 'collectors' out there

fortunately most people who collect seriously demand CIB (Cart, Instructions, Box - or Complete In Box) in as mint condition as possible, so that they may have their prized possession appraised (there's a system for that) and put it on their shelf and post pictures on-line of their collection, thus those of us who actually love playing games can try to hunt down 'cart-only', or similar; which kinda sucks, since part of the charm is to have an actual manual, etc.

either which way, I'm glad to see these kinds of solutions (such as the NES-mini, SNES-mini, etc. - and there's already a gazzillion clones out there) and I believe that one of the main reasons why Megadrive/Genesis games constantly have been available at low/decent prices (compared to NES/SNES), is that the Megadrive is still being produced (in Brazil) and there's been numerous, countless Megadrive/Genesis -clones with built-in games sold across the globe, since the mid-90's, thus satiating the demand for games and keeping stuff somewhat sane

(of course I am fully aware of the NES-clones, like Dendy, et al - but considering that they were targeted at a very specific (however large) market-group, I don't think it could in any way have impacted the NES; the way that the many Megadrive/Genesis-clones did on a global scale)

I gotta admit I know how you feel. My first Console ( as I have probably
mentioned before was from around 1990 when I had to choose from the
8 bit Sega or 8 bit Nintendo or the 16 bit graphics NEC Turbo-Grafx 16.
I went for the NEC Turbo-Grafx 16 that was on sale for $99 while the
others were still $149. Not the best decision in the long run since the
NEC didn't last long in the US market while the Sega did for a little while
and Nintendo was the clear winner ( until the Sony Playstation and the
Microsoft Xbox came along ). Needless to say I am partial to what I
bought and still have it with about 30 to 40 games. So I do have a nice
small collection of an obscure, not well known system that I really like.
