    Been quite upset after realiing my nuon games had been lost in Harvey. Could not believe how much the price of some these things has gone up. I thinkI paid like 7 bucks each for some of these a few years ago. Picked up Space invaders xl, Merlin racing, Frefall 3050 and ballistic off ebay. Been watching the ebay auction, did not really wanna pay that much, but just not a lot ofthe games out there anymore. I paid like 235 for them. I need Tempest 3000 back now. Was bidding on Next Tetris the other day, I kinda gave up thinking ot was gonna go for more than it did. I went to work and realized it only went for like 125, was a little irritated I did not bid thAT. Really thought it was gonna go over 200. I was not gonna buy the 4 games but wife was gonna buy me the NIB dvdn 501 that is on ebay right now and I told her I would rather have the games.

    I am pretty sure besides the Konix the NUON is the rarest system out there. Expect to pay a premium for anything and the odds of finding in the wild are slim to none.

    understood. I have never found anything in the wild at all except for a sd2300 dvd player I found right before the flood. The games had been getting more expensive but seem to have made a jump in the last year or so. Tempest did not used to be that hard to find and I would not have epected to have to pay a lot for it. Not gonna pay for a sealed game, will be patient and wait and enjoy my jaguar version until then :)

    I think I have a Tempest 3k in the collection my NUON is toast make me an offer. I actually never did really like the NUON version of Tempest I thought it was too washed out on the graphics and all the lightshow blurred out the enemies.

    This is why I like to help people find these games. I like to see people enjoying the Nuon.
