The Rarest and Most Valuable Playstation 2 (PS2) Games

RacketBoy writes: The PS2 game library is starting to come to an end, and much the like the PS1 before it, there is a strong selection of collector-friendly titles to choose from. And if history is any indication, many of these values might fluxate quite a bit over the next few years.

In stark contrast to the Cheapest Games series, this Rare & Valuable series will round up the rarest and most valuable games for a given console or handheld so you'll know what to look for whether you are buying or selling. Below you will see two prices beside each title. The first is the average daily selling price, which is typically the going rate for the game by itself. The second price is the highest price in the past three months which is usually the price for the new/sealed game. Note that some of these games are not rare in the sense that there are not many available, but rare relative to demand, which makes the games expensive.

Ico? Great, I sold that game to a friend for £5. =/

ico923167d ago (Edited 3167d ago )

you made one of the worst gaming decisions in your life

my top 3 most wanted hard to find ps2 games are

1. MGS 3 Subsistence Limited Edition

2. Magna Carta

3. ZOE 2nd Runner (Kojima for the love of god make a sequal)

Oh and for the record, Ps3 owners ,Folklore is becoming hard to find in the next 4-5 years it will be considered rare, so if you own it hold on to it, if not and you somehow stumble upon it buy it immeadiatley.

Folklor, fun game. I wonder when Valkyria Chronicles will be rare. I still have my review copy :D

mushroomwig3167d ago


Tell me about it!

Maybe I can buy it back without him knowing it's true value. :3

joemayo763167d ago

i pickd up a new copy of ICO that was on clearance at blockbuster for $6.99

also they mention Digital devil saga but dont mention the limited edition that goes for upward of $200 new

Davoh3167d ago

I only have ICO and Shadow Hearts from that list, would Shadow of the Colossus be considered rare? And I guess I should hang onto Magna Carta and Folklore

KiRBY30003167d ago

money cant express ICO's true value.

nix3167d ago

thanks mate! i have the copy of Folklore with me. might come handy later in my life. q:

AngryFork3167d ago

I was able to find Ico used at a gamestop near me last year for the standard 20$, it was the last one. There weren't any other stores that had it in a radius of like 10 miles i'm glad I got one.

I still hope Sony re-releases Ico/Shadow in HD though. They really need them. They're amazing games but hard to look at nowadays.

VINNIEPAZ3167d ago

I can List a Huge number of Games like MGS2 and on, but "Rarest" is the Key, so:


Marceles3167d ago

I'm surprised the PS2 version is now rare, the Dreamcast version is even more rare, it's like 300 bucks now. They forgot Capcom vs. SNK 2 also.

Noctis Aftermath3166d ago

When i tried to buy folklore about 6 months ago i couldn't find it on any websites or stores, eventually found it and imported it from Ebay for $50(US).

solideagle13166d ago

Shadow Hearts sequel with shadow Hearts 2 characters jochim, yuri... but man this was the first time in my life i was disappointed to see a studio close Azure i believe i dont know who has the publishing rights now. really would love to see a sequel.
very under rated and best game of all time on PS2.

hazelamy3166d ago

they actually re-released ico in the uk a year or two after the original release, so the pal version might not be worth as much.
