Rarest (and most valuable) current-gen games

GamesRadar - You’ve got to want to play these pretty badly to pay this much. (Culture)

had my chance....
back in the day. I thought, i already have the first two and just needed the 3rd. wow was i wrong to pass that up. Now I'd be lucky to find one without it costing me my 1st born.

figuratively speaking of course.

I almost bought a used copy of Chrono Trigger for $150 a few years ago. It came with everything.
SilentNegotiator  +   800d ago
Battle for Middle-earth II, $60-$180?? I never would have guessed that would accumulate in price. Glad to have a copy; textbook money. Or maybe I'll hold on to it and let it get more rare....IDK.
Calm Down Sunshine  +   800d ago
Lol.. I've got 3 copies... Would never have thought that it'd worth so much.
IAmLee  +   800d ago
Spread out over 19 pages... no thanks..

Still got my Black Label Final Fantasy 7 :) Worth a good bit!!
RogueStatus28  +   800d ago
That's why everyone should get 2 copies of Pandora's Tower.
Snookies12  +   800d ago
Shhh! Don't tell people, or else it won't be rare. D:
Merrill  +   800d ago
Demon's Souls Deluxe Edition.
eferreira  +   799d ago
have it sealed with the pre order bonus and a sealed metroid prime tilogy

The first Mass Effect Collectors Edition for Xbox 360 goes for over $100 regularly. Then there are some like the Killzone 3 Collectors Edition which I got new for $35 from Sony's site directly.

That Metroid Prime Trilogy is tough as heck to find at a decent price.
helghast102  +   800d ago
I picked up Metroid Prime Trilogy a few weeks ago.. for £8.
Not bad eh?
Snookies12  +   800d ago
Hah! Best hold on to that sucker then. Great snag at that price.
FriedGoat  +   800d ago
The value will most likely only apply to the US versions of the game. As the case with every other system, The PAL region has different valuable games.
amaguli  +   800d ago
The only game I have on the list of Xenoblade Chronicles. I regret not picking up Metroid Prime: Trilogy when I had the chance.

Actually, both Budokai Tenkaichi 2 and 3 are really expensive now... I hate that because my 3 got stolen back when I had my first Wii. My favorite DBZ game, and now I can't get it used without paying the price of a new game... :\

if you like them ,it would be worth 60$ even if used.
animegamingnerd  +   800d ago
sweet i own 2 of those games xneoblade and budokai tenkaichi 3
RememberThe357  +   800d ago
I got Xenoblade from gamefly last week (it's dope). The keep it price is 55$, I might have to hold on to it.
Kurt Russell  +   800d ago
Spyro is £10 on ebay. tempted to give it a go.
sypher  +   800d ago
Imported the One Piece wii game in the hope of one day playing it on my PAL console.

Also if anyone is interested i recently wrote an article explaining why games end up being worth what they are

WeAreLegion  +   800d ago
Some of these are not as valuable as Games Radar is stating. We sell Metroid Prime Trilogy for $19.99 at my store and Spyro for only $9.99. We have multiple copies of both...

F1 2009 is rare, but it's not $89 used rare. We sell it at $42.99 and it's on Amazon for even cheaper than that, sometimes.
AznGaara  +   800d ago
I was just looking at Xenoblade too :/
TXIDarkAvenger  +   800d ago
Wow I've actually seen a majority of these games in-stores before yet I don't own any of them on that list except the DBZ game.

God damnit! I could've bought Metroid: Trilogy for $13 bucks a year ago on ebay... MINT!
Flandy  +   800d ago
I own Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi 3 and Metroid Prime Trilogy. Why is DBZ so expensive?
MartinB105  +   800d ago
Xenoblade Chronicles $89? Try £40 (about $64 including tax) on Amazon.co.uk for a new copy.

Still not cheap, but not quite as expensive as this article would have you believe.
wingman32x  +   799d ago
True, and there are still a number of copies still in circulation at gamestop.

However, people are buying the game for $70 and up on Ebay. Worth keeping an eye on at the very least.
wishingW3L  +   800d ago
19 pages, are they for real? And to make things worse... Most of the games are nothing more than pure arse shovelware... Jesus.

It's not about good games, it's about valuable games.
wingman32x  +   800d ago
I was really on the fence with Xenoblade, but when I got to the store I finally gave in because deep down I knew I wanted it. I'm glad I did. The game is good, and it seems like I'll be able to make a gain on it when it comes time to sell.
DasTier  +   800d ago
Daaamn, I was shocked at how much I was given for trading in Bully: Scholarship Ed. and Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 last year, but I got nothing compared to these.
black911  +   800d ago
I still have NBA Elite Demo on my PS3. Is that worth anything?
Stoppokingme  +   800d ago
I still have copy of X-wing. I need a DOS emulator and about five minutes of typing to play it, but its worth it.
cleverusername  +   800d ago
A WORKING copy of Skyrim on PS3 is very very rare!!
Fishermenofwar  +   799d ago
I hate you and like the comment at the same time....PS3 gamer here...still funny though
cleverusername  +   799d ago
HATE? Someone's got issues!!
hazelamy  +   800d ago
i'm glad i've got a copy of Xenoblade, not because of any supposed rarity, but for how bloody good the game is.
The Great Melon  +   800d ago
Hmmm, I have quite a few of these games -- unopened I might add. I bought them to play, but as time slips by I feel like I am doing a disservice by opening them anymore.

This is why digital games are so good. If you wantt to buy a game but its rare they can make a digital release everyone can get.
IaussieGamer  +   799d ago
Not a bad list but they could have put a lot more rare games on the list than some they listed. One of the hardest games to get is a game Called Aquanaut's Holiday. Its the Chinese English version that is the hardest to find. Last time I looked there was just one for sale on ebay for $250.
PJF_Josh  +   799d ago
Hmmm, I have that.
DasTier  +   795d ago
Why would anyone care though?
PJF_Josh  +   794d ago
Why would anyone care what anybody writes in these comments?

Let's be realistic here, most people (not everyone, but most people) just skim the comments looking for validation of their own viewpoints.
RedSoakedSponge  +   799d ago
i own zero of these.... FML
floetry101  +   799d ago
Kind of bummed to find that I only have one of the games on this list in the form of Xenoblade.

I also have Demon's Souls Phantom Edition sealed, the Japanese import of Deadly Premonition (called Red Seeds Profile and never released in the West on PS3) and Pandora's Tower. Hopefully they'll be worth a little down the line.

Love this kind of stuff though. Even some of the most awful games become gems. NBA Elite would be an amazing one.
The Great Melon  +   799d ago
Ironically NBA Elite is one of those games that you would most likely get cheap. Used game stores see yearly sports games as literally worthless after the new version is released. I'll have to keep my open in the future for that game.
DivineAssault  +   799d ago
These prices are exaggerated a bit.. I seen used copies of metroid trilogy going for $45 & xenoblade chronicles for around the same recently
