I'd just go there and buy the DS version now to get my fix...

I should just buy a copy of Halo 3, Uncharted 2, SMG, and Call of Duty 4 and throw them in a box. Take 'em out in 25 years and (if we haven't been overthrown by communism) sell 'em.

There are better ways to invest your money.

I don't think games with hundreds of sequels are candidates to sell at absurd prices in the future. It has to be awesome obscure stuff.

It's a collector thing. I have a sealed copy of Panzer Dragoon Saga for Sega Saturn that is easily worth $500+

MWH2455d ago

why did you buy it? what's the point?

Ravenor2455d ago

Clearly you aren't much of a collector of anything.

To collect it and have it sealed so nobody has ever touched it... there are plenty of items where this is important, as it has to do with the value of the item later on. I don't understand how you can't understand that.

My brother put a down payment on his house with the proceeds from selling ONE THIRD of his comic book collection.

People collect things, people display things. It's a hobby and a passion. Gamers are no different than people who collect war memorabilia or people who collect stamps or coins. Plus things like this that are truly collectible usually appreciate in value.

collector sports cards come into mind those are worth a lot depending on what you have same with comic books

perhaps my question was a bit bland, i apologize. i meant why would any one buy a classic such as Panzer Dragoon Saga and keep it sealed. now i'm assuming that perhaps you played another copy while kept this one like a bottle of wine. i myself have tons of classic games all the way from the 80's but none which i didn't use.

clearly you're used to fish in murky waters, change your name to "bottom feeder".

You can get it for the DS now for cheap. :)

Blaine2455d ago

It's over 1000$ now...

Not surprising at all, a sealed Earthbound is most likely worth more still though.
