You could open it up internationally, then your potential customer base would be that much larger.

I have been very disappointed with the response to this compared to all of my other auctions. People must be hoarding cash these days. I think I am just going to let this run its course as is and post them for sale. Is there something specific you were interested in? I might be able to work something out after the auction ends if it is unsold, but not willing to generally open it up to international.

Not a commentary on your prices necessarily, but I think people tend to be afraid of high opening bids. Again, not saying that your prices are too high, but if they were called "soft reserves" I think more people would have bit early and followed it all along. Why open a bid at $30 when someone might post in another auction and you can get it for $25? So they wait until the final 24 hours and survey the current market at that time. But if they could have placed a bid of $5, it would show their interest without committing them to anything. You may or may not have sold as many, but you could better gauge interest.

As for me, a lot of great titles here. Unfortunately for you, I own just about all of them so that is why I sat this one out.

no, the prices are too high. on descent and automobile even the starting bids are just $1-2 below new delivered price from amazon. his MoV starting bid is more expensive than amazon. then his BIN prices are just insulting.

Certainly did not mean to insult and maybe I priced higher than some of my previous auction prices. I may have been swayed by these either being hot games or OOP titles. I didn't do extensive research other than generally knowing what the games were going for. Oh, well - raised enough to buy MoV for my Secret Santa recipient off of Amazon it would appear.

I am not going to directly call out high prices publicly. I think that is a break in auction etiquette as well. If it bothers you, voice your opinion by not bidding. If it bothers you more than that, take it up in a private GeekMail.

Let free enterprise reign. If I priced too high and don't sell them my bad and I will learn from it. I have had really good success in the past with auctions and maybe I did overprice and the market is telling me so. Does seem to me that the bidders aren't being as aggressive of late - not just basing that on my auction, but others I have bid in or watched.
