    That's what is happening on our local auction site (mercado livre). 
People raises prices on equipment, and the outsider comes and says "if he is 
selling for 1000, I'll sell mine for 1100 and see what happens" and the 
price goes to actual unpayable levels.

    $500 into a loose Atari 400? NO WAY.
