500 what? 500 doll hairs? 500 dollars?

Is this serious or is there really some Top Secret TurboDuo Collector Society that is willing to pay this much for a 20 year old game console?

Used Duos regularly go for 300 without any games as long the CD drive doesn't have any issues. The cheapest new Duo I've seen was on ebay for 2,400 (on sale). There aren't any new ones on ebay at the moment, but there are two on Amazon: 2,500 and 4,500. I know it's crazy but that's how rare they are.

Oh, and it's 21 years and 3 months old on January 10th.

I think you over-estimate the market my friend. I'll give you 500 pesos.

Re: [FS] TurboDuo - NEW

Just because its listed on eBay and/or Amazon Marketplace doesn't mean its actually selling at those prices. Anyone can set a price to whatever they desire, but it doesn't mean it will ever sell. Those high priced items could be sitting there unsold for years.

It takes more than just rarity for something to be valuable. It takes a demand significantly higher than its supply as well. I just can't imagine the demand for TurboDuo to be that high. I don't remember kids asking for a TurboDuo for Christmas in the 90s. "Hey, Mom, I don't want an SNES for Christmas. I want a TurboDuo!" Yeah, that didn't happen.

Plus, in today's world of emulation, anyone that wants to play these old games can easily do so for free. Emulation has pretty much killed the backmarket for old games and consoles like this.
