Carl Williams writes, "It is a sad day when we see things like this. Al Lowe, creator of Leisure Suit Larry while at Sierra On-Line, put a few files up for auction on eBay recently. As expected, fans of Leisure Suit Larry 1 and 2 quickly made this become a big thing in the retro gaming community. By becoming a big deal though, the auctions caught the eye of current owner of many Sierra On-Line intellectual properties, such as Police Quest and Kings Quest to name a few. This is important because that company is Activision and they have taken legal action against Mr. Lowe in reference to those two auctions. End result, those auctions are now pulled."
Despite delivering what was claimed to be the most disappointing E3 performance in years, PlayStation still came out on top winning over Aussie shoppers in 2018 as the most popular console - with sales growth outstripping that of the Xbox by almost double in the past 12 months.
eBay Head of Retail Insights, Gavin Dennis says, The gaming category continues to grow on eBay, driven both by exciting new game launches and innovation in the industry. Aussies across the country are keeping their finger on the pulse making sure they are first to get their hands on new products as they launch.
