How do you perform a search like that? I am a fairly noob e-bayee.

Just do a general search for Guitar Hero. Then on the left sidebar scroll down a little and there will be a 'completed listings' button. Click it and hit enter.

So you can only see completed auctions for 7 days?

You can still get Guitar Hero III at the Wal Mart a few blocks from my house. It's significantly less than $9000.

The story takes place in Montreal. What they didn't tell you was that the money was in Canadian dollars. That explains the discrepancy.

Well throw in the cost of convenience, buying online, and that bumps it up some, but I don't know about $9000. I personally wouldn't have gone any higher than $8450.

Avoiding Wal-Mart is worth a couple thousand.

Isn't the Canadian dollar stronger than the US dollar?

Yes. Family in Motreal tells me they get $1.10 US for every Canadian dollar now. Although I think Camisade was joking...
