    Default Hombrew being sold on Ebay!

    I have started this topic to list auctions on ebay that are selling homebrew games on ebay, so we can warn any one that bids on it that they are being ripped off!

    first BOR
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...sPageName=WD2V

    Bad sellers:
    eastcoastindustries

    theon711



    the idea is that we can watch these seller and what they are selling.
    So the bider will be warned about being ripped of and they will also know about the DC scene too!

    Unfortunately ebay are completely crap at resolving these sorts of things, Its seems that the profits are more important to them.

    If you can't beat them, join them...

    an obscure idea, but what about starting an ebay shop from the site, if there was any staff member that was willing to burn off CDR's with homebrew content along with printing the covers and labels, they could then sell the items at cost price with 'buy it now'. Of course each listed item would have to state that it was a homebrew item, created with a legal dev kit and duplicted on CDR, it could also have a url on the page to link directly here - how's about that for DC homebrew promotion!.

    well maybe because there is nothing Sega can do about the dreamcast cause its owned by a different person and its not a trademark its franchised by Sammy

    Eric, sammy and sega are the same damn company now. Do you take silly pills before comin on the forum or somethin? Here dont report the warez yet, wait till i've bought some titles...er... jus kiddin. Or how bout we start an ebay shop and sell homebrew and make a profit, and give it to the developers, we could sell homebrew compendiums, then the homebrew writers would get some reward.

    What about the people that create the dev tools? What about GPL? I dont understand how GPL works, but it would be kind of cool if some vendor created like a "Best Homebrew Of 2k4" Disk with art and whatnot and sold it in bulk on ebay for like <insert reasonable price and your own currancy here>. It could go to websites working closely with the DC scene and the developers. I guess you could call it a *charged donation* and since its a compilation it would be worth not having to go through and make your own sbi.
