Eight video game treasures you might actually own

Yahoo - You've seen the headlines, no doubt: Unsuspecting homeowner is cleaning out the garage, attic, or storage building, stumbles across a dusty box of old video games, and discovers a goldmine of valuable rarities that nets them tens of thousands of dollars. (Culture)

I think the only videogame-treasure I might own....
... is a couple of sealed HALO ODST + ODST Controller bundles. I was able to pick them up at 40 euro so I bought a couple so I would have some cool spare controllers, but haven't opened any of them yet.

When I look at amazon.com and see what some sellers are charging for those, it's crazy. Over 150 dollars last time I checked.

I have the black label FF7 with the misprint "I" on the back.

The case has a crack and its not really worth much but the disks are in new condition and I will never sell it EVER!!!!!

Dude, you can change out the casing and slip it into a new one if you have a different dual disc PS1 game. Just slip the back and front covers into the new case and snap it back into place.

Last I checked those misprint black labeled FF7 copies were going for quite a lot on Ebay.

I had no idea the component cables for Gamecube's were worth anything.

"They were only ever made by Nintendo (no third-party alternatives exist)"

That's bullshit. I personally own a 3rd party component cable for the Wii. It's a Wii/360/PS3 component cable combo. It cost me about $10.

I love the disagree I received from a factual statement.

That isn't even the specific cable I own, so clearly multiple companies make 3rd party component hookups for the Wii.

Baldur's Gate, some fun times in that game and seeing it here kind of makes me want to go back and play that game again.

Yeah, I still have both Dark Alliance titles for the PS2. Great games if a little simplistic compared to the PC versions.

I shudder to think how many people still have a black label copy of FF7 for PS1. I know I still have mine.
Myst  +   963d ago
Yeah I think I have it somewhere still should pull the game out and play it again sometime. I know I have the PSX FF7 black label I think we also have a PC version in the basement I think in a box.

check out this list on rare PS2, PS1, NES, Genesis games the latter two contain some of the most expensive rare games 've ever seen.

i've noticed in in the ps2's case It's only the most obscure JRPG's that fetch an unusually high price , that said if anyone has an obscure JRPG on the ps3 or any other console hold on to it , a good example would be Folklore on ps3 it's a game thats becoming harder and harder to find and i'm sure it'll be worth quite a bit in the future

@wigriff: actually it is true for the Gamecube. The Wii has backwards compatibility so the games will play on it just fine but for the Original Gamecube only Nintendo made them and you could only order them online but not many did since back then Progressive scan capable TV's weren't that popular yet. They have some weird extra stuff packed into them that no one else replicated thus the reason for their scarcity and price - although I still cant figure out why as you said someone wouldn't just buy a Wii and cheap component cable for it instead...

I have a copy of Metal Gear Subsistence, I might try to sell it as I don't use my PS2 much anymore.
