We've rounded up a few PS3 games that show serious potential for big price jumps over the next few years. Could these reach "Holy Grail" status?
I have a friend who still has a sealed copy of Folklore. I’m sure it’s worth more now than it was when it released but I’m not sure how much more.
Bought it for $5 at Walmart. I have yet to play it. But I did open it to look at it. Heh.
the game is actually good. I'd rather buy and play it than keep a sealed copy
Yeah I gave my brother my PS3 for free with a lot of games but I kept Folklore.
Folklore is an amazing game. Should have bought 2 copies. 1 to play and one to keep
yeah I still have a sealed copy of Folklore too. I almost never do this but I had originally rented it. One day I saw it for like $20 at Walmart so picked up a copy. Always meant to re-play it but just never did. I think in part because it never got trophy support[?]. It was an interesting and unique game that didn't get the love it deserved. I see Trails of Cold Steel II is tagged. Not sure where PS3 prices sit but the PS4 version of both Trails I and II were around $140 as recently as a little over a month ago. Ended up buying both of them digitally then buying III and IV on disc. Shame I kept putting off buying them. Just a couple months prior you could still get them both for about $45 each. Anyway I'm almost finished with II and hopefully be playing III and IV next.
I would suggest using price charting to evaluate the value of a past game. https://www.pricecharting.c... value for the game new is 60$
Still got my copy
Its not worth much, about £20.
I want Folklore. I've been trying to find it for some time now. It's one of the only games set in Ireland so I've been busting to play it some time
And wait for emulation and/or till their PS3 dies?
3D Dot Game Heroes is a cool game that may soon go up in price too. I enjoyed it.
That's one that has been quite hard to find for some time.
Gamestop has my copy. 😞
At least you didn't own ALL Panzer Dragoon entries only to sell them all on ebay. Don't talk to me about seller's regret...
I'm so glad I kept my copy of this game.
Great game, lots of fun - and definitely tougher to find. I'm glad I kept mine.
Glad I still have it. One of my fav games that gen
PS1, PS2 and PS3 BC right now is pointless. The top games are extremely overpriced or aren't available anywhere anymore. The best that can happen is Sony putting all the games on the PSN and/or PS Now. That way we all can play the classics, with trophies and some optimizations.
Pointless, unless you have a 2st stage production model PS3. One have to get fixed, but still, I've got it.
exvuse me i still play games on my ps2.
That's because you only think about yourself. 90% of gamers don't have PS1, PS2 or PS3 games lying around. What do think is going to happen when there is BC and games like Vagrant Story, MGS, Suikoden 2 will be on sale? The few that are will be sold for hundreds of Euro's/Dollars. Digital is the only option for everyone to be able to play those games.
ooff yea im only thinking about myself by playing my ps2 games haha. the whole point about my reply was that, BC is not pointless. alot of ppl still have their old games mind you.
Nobody agrees with you so I guess you're the one only thinking about themself.
Still have the Neptunia box sets unopened. Every year they get more valuable
I have a large PS3 collection half are opened half aren’t .
I have a copy of Ar Tonelico 3 collectors edition still sealed and I have a copy of Ar Nosurge on PS3 and Vita still sealed and Transformers War and Fall of Cybertron also still sealed.
If your going to buy a game in the hopes to sell it in a few years I would advise to just go invest in something with a bit more potential you know like stocks lol
Sweet. I have most of these. But I'll never sell. They're great games.
I have all these on digital, brand new never played them either, so I'm good
Most of that list got better releases on PS4. The only one I would suggest getting off that list is KOF 13 and even then the latest balance patch isn't on PS3. But if you don't care about that, that's worth picking up.
Well most Ps1 and Ps2 games are still cheap (compared to Game cube and Sega Saturn games) So I don't see a lot of common games getting a price hike over the next ten years contrary to Nintendo games that do get value over time. As an example, my Ps3 collection is worth an average of 250$ for 25 titles listed (New and CIB) https://www.pricecharting.c... While my Wii collection is already worth 735$ with fewer titles https://www.pricecharting.c... My DS collection is worth exactly the same as my ps3 collection with only 6 titles https://www.pricecharting.c... Even the newer 3ds is worth more compared to PS3 and Xbox 360 as my collection is worth 600$ with only 18 titles https://www.pricecharting.c... Just to show that Playstation is far from a brand that brings value as a collector (Ps1 game are far less valuable compared to Sega Saturn or Nintendo 64 games).
They clearly know nothing about PS3 games. These are all easy to find, holy grail is something rare like NBA Elite 11 worth thousands or Uncharted 2 Fortune Hunter Edition. And games that will jump in price if the store closes are games with the dlc on disk
Dragon's Crown has a PS4 edition so I doubt the PS3 version will increase much in price.
Dragon's Crown Pro is already fetching quite high prices, even on the PS4, when the game was re-released not too long ago, so gotta buy it before it really becomes a collector's item. On the PS3, if that rumor about Sony shutting down the PS store is true (which I absolutely believe it is), I suspect there are many games which are going to see their price skyrocket.
Just go to CEX, cheap as chips.
Lollypop chainsaw Just sayn'
We still have a copy of Robot Alchemic Drive for PS2. That game is awesome and it's gotten pricey last I looked.
