It would only be artificial price inflation if
1. There was unlimited supply
2. It was a necessary purchase, not luxury knick knack
If it wasn't necessary and is in limited supply, then it's worth whatever someone is willing to pay. The fact you're willing to cry over being too poor to afford one just shows it is in high demand from dumb little faggots like you.
Fwiw I paid $20 for my xa from a store, didn't even want one particularly, makes a nice shelf ornament.
