The most expensive PlayStation games around – PS1, 2 & 3 games that can cost as much as a PS4

OPM: How much do you think people are willing to play for an old PlayStation game or a rare collector’s editions? A few hundred? A few thousand? Here are some of the most expensive PS1, 2 and 3 games ever bought or sold. (Elemental Gearbolt, NBA Elite 11, PS2, PS3, Retro, Shadow Hearts, Suikoden II, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves)

Same here! Plenty of Chinese language ones but trying to find that Hong Kong english one... has to be the rarest officially released (non recalled) game on PS3? :/

They forgot:

1) Tales of Destiny PS1 = $500
http://www.amazon.com/Tales...

2) Tales of Destiny 2 PS1 = $250
http://www.amazon.com/Tales...

3) Vagrant Story PS1 = $150
http://www.amazon.com/Vagra...

But man, that UC2 Fortune Hunter Ed price is overkill! >.<

I bought Vagrant Story in like new condition on ebay for 35$ earlier this year. PS1 games on Amazon are almost always overpriced.

it happened just like with Persona. You could buy Persona 1 and 2 for like $10-15 on Amazon but then Persona 3 came out, the series became mainstream and all of a sudden the prices from the old games jumped dramatically. And now the same thing is happening with Tales...
Inception  +   358d ago
Maybe you right for other titles on amazon. But Tales of Destiny 1 & 2 copies always been rare this years. I've been searching for a cheap copies for both of them on playasia or ebay and it's no luck >.<

- Destiny 1 = $700
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Tal...
- Destiny 2 = $250
http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW...

That's why i never trade my Tales of Abyss and Tales of Graces f + Xillia Day 1 Edition. In case they became very rare in the future.

only one I have it's Megaman Legends 2 but I think the Tron Bonne game is more expensive.

I have a shadow heart and LOD unopened copies at my mothers place maybe it's time to dig them out.
wishingW3L  +   358d ago
just remember that the more you wait to sell em the more valuable they will become!
BranWheatKillah  +   358d ago
This isn't always true. Even a sealed game loses value when a digital version is released. Granted, Legend of Dragoon has already had the digital hit the market.
BranWheatKillah  +   358d ago
Most of these games on the list are not even half the price they had shown. I own a used game store and, using Mega Man 2 Legends as an example, we have it for $55. Legend of Dragoon is a $15 game.

These titles are grossly overpriced in this article and it seems like they grabbed the highest listed eBay price rather than doing any research.

Thank you. I was saying this to my computer screen the whole time I was reading this terrible article.

The price tag i put on my items doesnt make em valuable. What makes em valuable is the price other people are willing to pay for them... Just sayin.

Its like: If i put my Huawei X3 on sale on ebay for 3 Million Dollars it would make my phone the most expensive phone ever.

It would only be if someone actualy bought it. Thats Economy and Inflation 101.
i guess they forgot about ps1's klonoa price tag $449.94

I know it not same, but I'm ever so glad that ps1 & ps2 games are on psn.

Even though I treasure my PS1 discs, $9.99 sure is a lot more easier to swallow than $199.

Add Elder Scrolls Online to this list. Proposed expense for the 1st year for ESO will be $240

Suikoden II is my favorite JRPG ever.
I hope Konami would continue the series on the PS4.
