And I'm forever grateful @Jon ! ^_^ I wasn't at all into PVM's when you sold that to me so I was ignorant of the value. I legit just wanted a decent enough display to play light gun games on my Saturn. Now I have an entire area of my game room dedicated to it - hell, I have TWO Mega Drives hooked up to it lol. Just love the thing. You've hooked me up a few times, man - extremely grateful.Unfortunately, you are correct.
The 2 PVM'S I had were bought (years ago) for $50 each. They were both Sony 20m2mdu. Just last month they were going for $1600-2000, which is insane.
Sold one last year to @yagamikun for $100.
If someone gives you a good deal, pass it on. That is how this community SHOULD work.
That said, got curious a few months ago about PVM prices. I about shit a brick when I looked up my model number. Holy fuck stick, Batman! I suspected the market would be over blown at this point - what part of the retro game market isn't? But wasn't quite expecting AES levels of absurdity.
It's nice to pay it forward when you can, for sure. I gave the entire Neo CD Samurai Shodown set to a buddy on Instagram who got his first Neo CD earlier this year. You thought I sent him five sticks of gold, the fuss he made, lol. But it always makes ya feel sunny when you surprise somebody like that.
