The Most Expensive Games On GameStop's New Retro Store

Kotaku:
What’s old is new again. Unfortunately, it’s also pricey.

GameStop launched its long-discussed retro store today, and most games are available for pretty reasonable prices. $12.99 for Metal Gear? Sure. $6.99 for Sonic the Hedgehog 2? Alright. Even $34.99 for Mega Man 2 isn’t ridiculous, considering what it’s going for over on eBay.

It doesn’t take long for old school games to start breaking the bank, though, and I wanted to know the priciest games on GameStop’s storefront.

The story is too old to be commented.

Probably not sealed but I wonder if it comes in the original box with manuals.

EDIT* Website doesn't show box art but just the cart for N64 games. A lot of the non rare finds are pretty pricey. Consoles are a lot too.

With $89.99 for Chrono Trigger, you could get only a cartridge in bad condition, nothing more. That game complete goes for 250 and sealed about many $$$$...

ELE_Victim823d ago

Of course it's not sealed. Bad Fur Day sealed new is hundreds of dollars on ebay.

This game on Amazon is $76 at cheapest price.

TXIDarkAvenger823d ago

Except I'm not talking about Bad Fur Day at all.

What if Game Stop got their hands on a copy of Earthbound or -gulps- Valkyrie Profile?

FarEastOrient824d ago (Edited 824d ago )

I agree, I wonder what Gamestop will price Lunar 1 & 2 for the Sega CD.

Edit: (I just looked this up) Mint condition Final Fantasy Tactics for PS1 is going for $2,500... Gulp...

BranWheatKillah823d ago

No, no it is not.

A mint condition, complete FF1 sells for $15-20. You can get sealed copies for under $30.

I happen to own a retro game store if you're looking for backing on this information.

FarEastOrient823d ago

@Bran we're not even talking about the same game. I said FFTactics not FF1

Here's the link:

The next one is $100

I still have my Earthbound cart for SNES :p

FallenAngel1984824d ago

I'm glad the Rare Replay is coming. No longer do we have to pay high prices just to play Conker's BFD. For just $30 we not only get Conker but 29 other games as well. Best deal ever

Agent_00_Revan824d ago

$50 for Hyperstone Heist!?! But that version is garbage compared to Turtles in Time!

Relientk77824d ago

I can't believe TMNT: The Hyperstone Heist on Genesis is $50

that game rules though, glad I have it
