Ouch. Someone got a brand new Wolfenstein 3D big box (first CD-ROM version; NOT the 1998/2001 re-release) for AU $10, literally seconds before I could buy it.

that is an incredible deal, it sounds like! i once passed up some sort of re-release of Wolf 3D that had Spear of Destiny bundled with it at a games store. it wasn't the original game by any means, but it still would've been nice to have. instead, i bought Unreal 2 for the Xbox instead. i'd say that was the worse choice in the end!
Many copies of the Wolf 3D + Spear of Destiny bundle are actually missing Spear of Destiny, even though the packaging states it is included. Despite the egregious error, those releases are still very expensive on eBay. I have the 2001 release by Activision, and Spear of Destiny is indeed entirely absent from the disc. Hilariously, the manual (printed on the reverse of the cover insert) only details Spear of Destiny's bosses.
The 2001 one was a budget re-release, so I don't know why it costs so much. I got mine for like AU $20, yet right now there are listings for it on the US eBay that range from about AU $70-$300 (not including shipping). The Xplosiv (UK) versions are around AU $40 (not including shipping) (I don't know if these are also missing Spear of Destiny). The 1998 one contains a jewel case inside a big box, and is also extremely expensive.
