Already posted it in the retro purchase thread but I recently acquired a Wonderswan Crystal for a trade value of $60. Had to give away one of my figures for it but it's worth it. The only flaw is that dust easily enters the screen which means I have to remove the casing to blow away the dust :|

Man speaking of Metroid Prime Trilogy, what's up with the huge prices on a lot of out of print games for Gamecube and Wii? Guess there's a lesson to be learned here and I'll have to get the good stuff for the Wii U as it is coming out. Nintendo will always be popular with collectors I suppose.

Don't think the current situation will be the same. People who just want to play it can get digital if the prices are unreasonable.

I did pick up Fire Dogs around then because I knew that was a rental-only game so I picked it up impulse buy for like $20 (cart only), even though it's hard to say if people even wanted to pay that.
Though I think so far the only rental-exclusive game people really care about is Final Fight Guy.

How many Ren & Stimpy video games were there? :P I loved that show as a kid but I never wanted to play a video game version. Wasn't *Hagan*e a rental exclusive too?

I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

I believe there were four on the SNES: Veediots, Time Warp, Fire Dogs and Buckeroo$.
I think Buckeroo$ was the only NES, a couple on the Game Boy. Sega made one for the Genesis I think which could be haflway-decent, maybe (since THQ wasn't involved).

I'm not sure if Hagane actually was. I know FFG and R&S:FD are the only ones listed as rental-only in Nintendo Power. Eek the Cat was listed as rental-only but others have said it later got a retail release (I have a cart and manual, the manual has warranty info which I'd think be unnecessary for a rental game). The only other I'm sure of is Clay Fighter: Tournament Edition which was made especially for a Blockbuster tournament (so the game was released there a couple months before so people could play it for practice). 3 Ninjas Kick Back was listed RO in GamePro but it seems the game came with a poster (which, like the box and manual are now insane collector items), which also would seem unneeded for a RO.
Unless they plan to rent the poster! (idea for ogo) :D

I have an unlicensed Tengen Gauntlet for NES cartridge (no box). How rare are those black unlicensed Tengen NES carts?

Also, reading through this thread, some other games I saw mentioned as being rare that I have are Xenoblade Chronicles, Metroid Prime Trilogy, and Conker's Bad Fur Day. All of those games I have the box and instruction manuals and everything.

Tengen games are pretty common. It's only Tetris that's kind of rare (because it will recalled a month after release, but it sold pretty well that one month it was available).
I don't think Xenoblade or Metroid Prime Trilogy are as rare since GameStop reprinted them (and after the price-gouging controversy they slowly dropped it back to the real price).

I don't know there, ogo, I think you might be making an assumption Americans have heard of Spectrum. :P
(even Commodore was probably not well known by modern gamers on VC)

I've heard of that game ogo posted. Publisher Firebird even went as far as encouraging people to pirate it! I need to get a Spectrum emulator to see how bad it really is (can't be any worse than Action 52).

I just bought the PAL version of Twilight Princess on Gamecube.I know it's rare but how rare is it really.I bought it in CEX for £48 and I'm thinking of selling for more like maybe £55 but I took the cover sleeve out and there are a few tears that I didn't notice till I took the sleeve out.It came with the Manual and everything and the disc is working perfectly soo far.

What's the point in buying a game if you're going to sell it right away?

I am going to fully play it but want to make a profit after I'm done with it if I want to sell it. £48 is alot of money for a old game that I have played before on the Wii.

I don't think it's reasonable if you complain about that, with the intention to sell the game for even more.

I wasn't preparing to buying this game though but I thought heck I live once and I do want to play this game on the Gamecube.I can't really afford to spend that much money on a game that was pre owned and in that condition.Really they should've charged £40 because the cover wasn't in all that great condition for what I'm paying for.To me it's like asking someone which Windwaker they'd rather have if they have both consoles and were offered A copy of Wind Waker Pre Owned or Wind Waker HD for the same price as the pre owned one.Wouldn't you rather have the improved version since it's brand new and better and there is no risk of it not working.
