My statements are my own opinions. They have the value that the reader gives them. My opinion of my opinion varies between foolish and brilliant and these opinions often change with new information.

You think that is ridiculous but I've seen multiple mame machines with just a single joystick and two buttons sell for between $1500 and $3000 at the arcade auction. Oh and with only a 19 inch arcade monitor in them.

Its not so much the price, its the fact that you don't even know what this one is. Is it 1 player? Cocktail? Auction doesn't even have a pic of it.

I wouldn't buy anything from a seller that looked that shady (and used geoshitties to boot!)

but it "seems" that the mame cabinet is in a japanes sitdown style cabinet which would be pretty cool... and might make it worth the grand (depending on multitude of factors... monitor, intactness of jamma harnessesessess, condition, speed of PC, etc...)

Hell no..he must be nuts if he thinks someone's gonna buy that.
Game programmers do not play games for a living.  Would you say a mechanic drives cars for a living?

People will buy anything off eBay.  Saw a can of "Canned Canadian Air" go for $25 to a Texan.
