Twisted Metal 4 Prima's Official Strategy Guide

Why the hell is this guide in particular so expensive? For months, I haven't seen one for sale that's cheaper than $600 online. What's so special about it? The Twisted Metal 3 guide is fairly cheap. You can score one for $20-30.

Some copies currently for sale:

eBay for $602.47:

Japanese Amazon for $821.90:

5 other Amazon English listings for a various amount of at last $600 or more:

I mentioned this once before on the Collecting Mega-Thread to no response. A user on here sent an email to a seller and the response was that algorithms are controlling the pricing and thats it.

I have gotten a couple copies recently for less than $30. http://temp.tmalliance.com/?num=1550195117

So basically it's a scam. I just bought one for $13 but it's in rough shape. When are you going to update the mega thread? I have several items that need to be added to the list.

If people will pay for it at that price it's not a scam. It depends on how rare it is vs. the demand.

Look at you. You paid $1500. There's no way I'd do that as for me it seems like a ludicrous use of money, but it's rare and SOMEONE will do so it sells at that price to SOMEONE (you).

I canít edit the mega thread anymore, so it will take additional posts. Iíll host a new mega thread at a site that allows multiple edits and link it here. In the meantime, feel free to PM me what you have to add or post it in the mega-thread.

Both copies I found were in good shape and complete with poster for about $15 a piece. I think its just scarce and an Amazon seller overpriced it. Since the TM collectors I know have paid around that, I would blame it on algorithms.
