Economics are a strange thing. For me the price of the Vectrex game hasn't changed but the international exchange rates do funny things with international prices. What you guys are saying about having to pay 80 USD sucks. It used to be the other way around pre-euro for a lot of European countries. The dollar was strong and the US was an expensive country. I worked in the US in 1993 and earned an enormous amount of money compared to European standards. Despite the strong Euro half my salary goes to taxes and social security contributions which sort of sucks but at the same time is very human for people without jobs.
Say I actually have one of these, got it from an elderly couple and the guy signed it 'Silverfox' in 1993 on an Amtrack train to Savannah Georgia when I was travelling together with Jillian Neal (a friend from New Zealand). We both got one after we'd been talking to the elderly couple for quite a long time. I wonder how much it is worth. Of course it being signed devalues it to others but it does remind me of that trip and the nice conversation we had with those elderly folk - very colorful people those two.
