15 Rare PSP Games | The Most Expensive Playstation Portable Games

The PSP has received more than 650 games since it launched in March 2005. With nearly 10 million consoles sold in the USA the Playstation Portable had many games that sold millions of copies. But the PSP also has its fair share of rare games that are hard to find and are quite expensive. Below is a list of the rarest PSP games and what makes them so valuable.

Most Valuable PSP Video Games

Monster Kingdom Jewel Summoner

Expensive PSP Games New Price: $80 | Used Price: $28 | See Current Prices

Monster Kingdom Jewel Summoner is a turn based RPG published by Atlus. You collect jewels that have trapped monsters inside. When you summon the monsters they will fight untamed monsters for you. The game is often compared to the Pokemon series.


Atlus is well known for small print runs for their games. Monster Kingdom fit the stereotypical Atlus release and is quite difficult to find at local stores. If the game increases in price much more Atlus will probably reprint it as they have done with other popular games.

Hexyz Force

Valuable PSP Games New Price: $70 | Used Price: $35 | See Current Prices

Hexyz Force is a RPG developed by Atlus. You follow the story of two different characters who try to save the world from destruction. Their stories are different but cross paths at certain points.


Hexyz Force was published in small quantities by Atlus, but was also hurt by a pre-order problem at Gamestop. Many customers who pre-ordered never received the game because of the snafu. Atlus typically sells a large percentage of their games via pre-order so this hurt sales a great deal.

Legend of Heroes II Prophecy of the Moonlight Witch

PSP Games of Value New Price: $70 | Used Price: $23 | See Current Prices

Legend of Heroes II is a role playing game published by Namco Bandai. The Legend of Heroes series has been on the NEC, Saturn, PC, and PSP but only the PSP games have been translated into English. This is actually the third game released in the series.


The Legend of Heroes series is not a popular RPG series outside of Japan so it was printed in a small quantity. Prices for Moonlight Witch more than doubled when the fourth title, Trails in the Sky, came out in 2011.

Ys I & II Chronicles

PSP Games New Price: $60 | Used Price: $36 | See Current Prices

Ys I and II Chronicles is a compilation of the first two Ys RPG's released for the Turbo Grfx CD. Prior to the PSP version's release in 2011, the game had been relased on Wii Virtual Console and Nintendo DS. The game received widespread praise in the gaming press.


The Ys compilation sold very few copies. Even with the title available on many different consoles, gamer's continue to buy the PSP version. They can play it other places, but collector's are willing to pay a premium for its rarity.

Harvest Moon Boy and Girl

Expensive PSP Games New Price: $60 | Used Price: $26 | See Current Prices

Harvest Moon Boy & Girl is a farm/life simulator published by Natsume. The Boy portion is a remake of Harvest Moon Back to Nature for PS1 and the girl version is a remake with a girl as the make character and boys she can choose to marry.


Harvest Moon titles have a very devoted following of hardcore fans. This version of the game has been released on GBA, PS1, PSP, and even Playstation Network but many fans are willing to pay a premium for the rare PSP version.

Phantasy Star Portable 2

Rare PSP Games New Price: $55 | Used Price: $33 | See Current Prices

Phantasy Star Portable 2 is a role-playing game for the PSP. It has a single player mode but emphasizes co-op local and internet play. It is the only game in the series to not require a monthly fee for online play.


Phantasy Star Portable 2 was published by Sega after moderate success from the original Phantasy Star game on PSP. The sequel sold poorly enough that Sega never brought the next game in the series, Phantasy Star Portable 2 Infitity, to the USA.

Riviera The Promised Land

Rare Playstation Portable New Price: $55 | Used Price: $17 | See Current Prices

Riviera The Promised Land is an turn based RPG from Atlus. The game has some unconvential takes on RPGs with dating sim elements and the lack of control of the main character when outside of dungeons. Riviera was originally released on WonderSwan Color in Japan and Gameboy Advance in the USA.


Like all other Atlus titles on the list, the game was printed in limited quantites to ensure it sold out. Prices for the game in loose condition are fairly reasonable. When brand new the price is much higher and has been increasing during the last year.

Crimson Gem Saga

Expensive Playstation Portable Games New Price: $49 | Used Price: $30 | See Current Prices

Crimson Saga is turn based role playing game developed in South Korea and published in the USA by Atlus. It is the sequel to Astonishia Story but with many new gameplay mechanics. The game doesn't do anything unique in the world of RPG's, but is very solid and well reviewed.


This is another Atlus published RPG. Atlus printed the game in limited quantities because it is a niche title and the original game sold very little. Atlus has not reprinted the game.

Harvest Moon: Hero of LeafValley

Rare Playstation Portable Games New Price: $40 | Used Price: $25 | See Current Prices

Harvest Moon: Hero of Leaf Valley is a farm/life simulation game in the long running Harvest Moon series. You take over your grandfather's farm and must raise crops and livestock to earn a profit. The grand goal is to save the town from turning into an amusement park.


Harvest Moon is a very niche genre of farm and love simulation. You must raise crops and get girls from town to marry you. Harvest Moon generally sell very few copies but keep their value over a long time. Harvest Moon titles are some of the most expensive games for SNES and N64.

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Impact

Rarest PSP Games New Price: $35 | Used Price: $27 | See Current Prices

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Impact is a fighting game for the PSP. You play as different characters from the Naruto series, each with unique abilities and moves. Ultimate Ninja Impact is the 6th Naruto game for the PSP and most likely the last.


The game sold modestly in the USA. It is the last title in the series for the PSP so it is still in high demand from Naruto fans.

10 Rare Gameboy Advance Games | The Most Expensive GBA Games

The GameBoy Advance has seen more than 1,000 games since it launched in 2001. Unfortunatley the system had problems with bootlegged games from China and illegal copies were made of some of the rarest GBA games. Inspite of this problem, there are still quite a few hard to find GameBoy Advanced games. Below is a list of the most expensive and rare GameBoy Advance games.

Click to see Prices For All GameBoy Advance Games


Most Valuable GBA Games

Ninja Five-O

Expensive GBA GamesNew Price: $1,000 | Used Price: $75 | See Current Prices
Ninja Five-O is a action platformer with stealth elements. You play as a ninja police officer who works through multiple levels to defeat a terrorist cell. You use swords, throwing stars, magic, and a grappling hook to defeat the enemy without getting caught.

The game was published by Konami but for some reason was never produced in large numbers. The game is very hard to find as a cartridge only but ridiculously rare with the box and manual. Ninja Five-O is also highly rated and on many Best of GBA lists.

Worms Blast

GBA GamesNew Price: $200 | Used Price: $40 | See Current Prices
Worms Blast is a puzzle action game for multiple platforms and Gameboy Advance. Unlike other Worms games that are more strategy focused, this spinoff plays very similar to Bust-A-Move but the Worms gain the ability to use different weapons as the stages progress.

UbiSoft released the game for Gamecube, PC, and Mac, but only the GameBoy Advance version has become rare and valuable. The GBA version was released later in 2003 than the Gamecube version. UbiSoft might have lowered production numbers after the Gamecube edition sold below expectations.

Fire Emblem

Expensive Advance GamesNew Price: $140 | Used Price: $34 | See Current Prices
Fire Emblem is a strategy RPG. You control a unit of soldiers and must save the kingdom using different weapons and classes of soldiers. If a character dies in the game, they are died for good and will not come back.

This is the first of the Fire Emblem games to be released in the USA but the series had been going for quite a while in Japan. This first game was printed in fairly large numbers but not enough to meet demand. After Fire Emblem Awakening came out for the 3DS, prices have only increased.

Medabots: Metabee

Valuable GBA GamesNew Price: $NA | Used Price: $30 | See Current Prices
Medabots: Metabee is a role playing game made by Natsume. You play as a boy who assembles and collects Medabot characters to fight against the Rubberrobo Gang. The game dynamics are similar to Pokemon. This is not to be confused with the game Medabots AX: Matabee, which is a fighting game and not very valuable.

Like Pokemon games, Medabots was released in two variations - Metabee and Rokusho. Rokusho appears later in this list.

Tiny Toon Adventures: Scary Dreams

Most Expensive GBA GamesNew Price: $140 | Used Price: $30 | See Current Prices
Buster's Bad Dream is a side-scrolling action game. Buster teams up with other characters from Tiny Toon Adventures. Each character pairing has different combos they can pull off.

The game was released in Europe with the name Buster's Bad Dream, but the name was changed to Scary Dreams in the USA. The game was published by Consipiracy Entertainment in 2002, but never actually released. Copies of the game started appearing on eBay in 2005. Presumably, some were produced but then it was cancelled but a few cartridges managed to make it out in the public.

Super Street Fighter II Turbo Revival

Gameboy Advance GamesNew Price: $130 | Used Price: $14 | See Current Prices
Super Street Fighter II Turbo Revival is a remake of the Super Turbo game from the arcade. The game has all new character animations and complete button customization. SSFII Turbo Revival was released several months after the Gameboy Advance launched.

The game sold fairly well and isn't very rare in used condition, but is very hard to find brand new. There are only three or four new copies sold per year.

Castlevania Aria of Sorrow

Rare GBA GamesNew Price: $120 | Used Price: $19 | See Current Prices
Castlevania Aria of Sorrow is an action game with heavy RPG elements. The game fits the Metroidvania style of Castlevania games, similar to Castlevania Symphony of the Night. You get different items in the game that open up new sections of the world and build stronger weapons and characters by collecting souls of killed enemies.

This was the third Castlevania game released for the Gameboy Advanced and is widely considered the best of the three. The game sold very well initially but is still very popular because of its wide critical acclaim. This popularity keeps prices high.

Mega Man Battle Network

Expensive Advance GamesNew Price: $113 | Used Price: $23 | See Current Prices
Mega Man Battle Network is a role-playing spinoff from the main Mega Man series. You control characters in a virtual world and must defeat viruses taking over the network. Battle is a hybrid of action RPG and card based gameplay.

This was the first of ten Battle Network games for the Gameboy Advance. People want to own the original and it sold fewer copies than the subsequent releases, which makes it the most expensive game in the series.

Pokemon Emerald

Gameboy Advance GamesNew Price: $100 | Used Price: $27 | See Current Prices
Pokemon Emerald is a role playing game in the long running Pokemon series. It is the third in the series for Gameboy Advance and takes place in the same location as Ruby and Sapphire. Emerald's featured Legendary is Rayquaza.

Emerald was the final Pokemon game released for Gameboy Advance. The title sold millions of copies, but Pokemon collectors need it in order to "catch 'em all" so still sells for a premium price.

Zelda Minish Cap

Gameboy Advanced GamesNew Price: $100 | Used Price: $27 | See Current Prices
Zelda Minish Cap is an adventure game in the long running Legend of Zelda series. You can use a Minish Cap that will shrink Link so he can access different areas.

Minish Cap was the only original Zelda game released for the GBA and received widespread praises. It is another example of a game that sold millions of copies, but is in such high demand that it continues to fetch a high resale price.

Greatest Video Game Garage Sale Ever

Greatest Video Game Garage Sale
Many gamers go to garage sales hoping to find a few cheap games for their collection and maybe get lucky and get a really good deal. Rob Walters found games worth more than $50,000 dollars at a garage sale! Including games like 1990 Nintendo World Championships, 1991 Campus Challenge, 1992 Campus Challenge, and 1994 Powerfest. Below is the story of Rob's legendary garage sale find and the games and memorabilia he found.

In August 2006 Rob was driving by a garage sale in New York and decided to stop to see what they had. He spots a table with some video games on it and walks over to see what he can find. The table is full of sealed NES games, new SNES games, and a bunch of other gaming stuff. Rob quickly asks "Who's garage sale is this? And how much for all these games?" The seller says "I will sell everything for $40." Rob quickly pays the $40, grabs all the games on the table and even grabs a few games from the hands of other garage sale shoppers.

As he is leaving and chatting with the seller, the man casually says "I have tons more stuff inside that I'm not going to sell." Rob doesn't think much of it and goes back home to see what he had bought and what it is all worth. This table had five copies of Starfox Super Weekend which Rob knew were special but didn't know much about them. He looks up the prices on ebay and sees that they sell for $200-300 each. That's $1,500 for just those five games! Some of the other sealed games in the collection are easily worth $40 by themselves.

Rob decides he needs to go back to the seller's house and see what other "stuff" he has.

Rob knocks on his door and says he needs a Super Nintendo to play some of the games he bought and was wondering if he had one to sell (Rob really did need an SNES). The seller says he does and invites Rob inside. They start talking and the seller says he has boxes and boxes of Nintendo games and memorabilia in his attic and would love to show Rob some of the stuff.

First he shows a pristine condition 1990 Nintendo World Championships Gray cartridge. Rob said he "has never seen a better condition copy, it was perfect." Then the seller grabs some other games and throws them on the couch. He just threw the only known copies of 1991 Nintendo Campus Challenge and 1994 Powerfest on his couch!

Rob decides to be honest with the seller, "This stuff is really valuable. I can help you sell it and we can split the money." The seller says he doesn't want to sell it publicly because he used to work for Nintendo and isn't supposed to have these items. Rob says "I will give you $1,000 cash for everything you have and I won't ever tell anyone who I bought this stuff from." (Rob brought a bunch $1,000 with him just in case he had the chance to buy something) The seller agrees and Rob takes his new fought collection home.

The collection of items Rob purchased is worth well over $50,000 in today's market. 1991 Campus Challenge recently sold for $14,000. Powerfest 1994 sold for $10,000 about four months after the garage sale and the NWC Gray cartridge sells for $5,000. Rob basically paid $1,040 for stuff that is worth 48 times that!

Below are pictures of the games and other collector's items Rob purchased at the garage sale.

1992 Nintendo Campus Challenge System
1992 Nintendo Campus Challenge SystemOne of two 1992 Nintendo Campus Challenge cartridges ever found. The game is hooked up to a Japanese Super Famicom and as you can tell is much bigger than a regular SNES game.

1994 Nintendo Powerfest System
1994 Nintendo Powerfest CartridgeThe only copy of the 1994 Nintendo Powerfest ever found. This cartridge is attached to a Super Nintendo console and is also much bigger than traditional cartridges. The 1994 Powerfest was sometimes referred to as "Nintendo World Championships II". The person who sold this cartridge said only 12 were made and 11 were sent back to Nintendo to be destroyed.

1991 Nintendo Campus Challenge Cartridge
1991 Nintendo Campus Challenge CartridgeThe only 1991 Nintendo Campus Challenge cartridge know to exist. This was used in Nintendo's 1991 campus tournament which travelled to about 60 college's and spring break destinations. The cartridge looks like an original NES with part of the top missing and an extra long circuit board.

Five Starfox Super Weekend Cartridges
Five Starfox Super Weekend CartridgesThese are rare cartridges that Nintendo used in a video game competitions hosted by Nintendo Power. The magazine briefly sold them to the public in very limited quantities.

Earthbound NES Cartridge
Earthbound NES CartridgeThis is similar to the Earthbound game that sold on ebay about a month ago for $1,415. It might be the same cartridge but I couldn't verify this. The NES promo game was made for trade shows like E3 and was never released as a Nintendo NES game.

1992 Campus Challenge Jacket
Jacket for 1992 Nintendo Campus ChallengeThe seller of all these items said this jacket was one of twelve ever made. They were given to some Nintendo staff. The "Campus Challenge" logo was on all 12, but the seller had the "Super Power 92" added himself.

Nintendo Powerfest Promo VHS Tapes
Nintendo Powerfest VHS TapesVHS Tapes giving a run down of various Nintendo events. In Rob's own words they are "1990's lame but still interesting"

Nintendo Vase - 1992 Campus Challenge Award
Nintendo Vase 1992 AwardA vase that was made to be an award for a 1992 Nintendo event. The winner never claimed the prize. A vase seems like a strange prize for a game tournament. I don't think gamers are the type to keep fresh flowers, but maybe I'm stereotyping gamers too much.

All images came from Jollerancher's Pixelpipeline Gallery. Thank you Rob Walters for answering some of my questions. Additional information comes from a digitpress post by Rob after buying the games.

What One Tweet and One Link Can Do

The recent article I wrote on the VGPC blog about my adventures buying Nintendo World Championship became quite popular. At the peak 6,600 people were reading the article per hour! It all started with one link on GameSetWatch and one message on Twitter.

June 23rd - The NWC Gold article was published. During the first seven days a few loyal readers commented about the purchase and we had our usual 300 visitors per day reading the articles on the blog. This is what I expected because I thought only video game collectors would find the article interesting.

July 1st - GameSetWatch posts a link to the article in their GameSetLinks article series. During the next 8 days only 47 visitors come directly from this link.

July 2nd 9:34 AM - A user on twitter, KyleOrl, tweets about the purchase with a link directly to the NWC article.

July 7th - We receive five interview requests about video game collecting and buying the Gold cartridge specifically from publications like Nintendo Magazine in UK, TheStreet.com, and WXLP radio station.

The publicity the article and video game purchase generated was quite a shock to me. I didn't think anyone outside the gaming community would care but people were very passionate for and against the purchase. Some people thought my kids would be ashamed of me - "I am sure that when your kid grows up he will be ashamed that his father wasted money that could have payed for medical bills, tuition." While others thought it was great, "Congratulations!! I know how it feels to have such wonderful part of history."

The most interesting part of the whole situation was seeing how one link on a website and one tweet can lead to so much more.

NWC Gray Auction, A Radio Interview & iphone App

1990 NWC Gray
There is an auction on ebay right now for a 1990 Nintendo World Championships Gray cartridge. I'm very interested in seeing how much this game sells for compared to the Gold version. The auction started at $100, which is great. I love low starting price auctions on these really rare games. We really get to see the market price.

Interview About NWC Gold Purchase On Radio


On a side note, I am going to be interviewed tomorrow morning at 10AM EST by a radio station in Iowa about the Gold cartridge I purchased. The hosts of the show are gamers and wanted some more information about the purchase. If anyone is interested you can listen online here. It will be my first time on radio so I'm a bit nervous. It should be fun though.

iPhone App With Video Game Prices


Lastly, a website we worked with for a while (VideoGameTrader.com) launched an iphone app that lets you bring your video game prices with you on the go. The app is $0.99 and you can download it here. We didn't help create the application at all, but we do provide some pricing data for it. The prices are NOT the same as ours so we cannot guarantee their accuracy or even say exactly how they are determined. But we have used it for a while ourselves and think it can be very helpful while you are shopping at flea markets, garage sales, or other places away from your PC.

Right now our price charts don't work with the iphone because they don't have flash support, but we are looking into some different ways to show the charts without flash so iphone users can use all our site's features.

Interview: Rare Game Collector With 16,000 Games

I had the opportunity to interview Jason Wilson, better known as DreamTR in the video game community. He owns nearly 16,000 games and has one of the largest collections of rare and one-of-a-kind items in the world. Below are excerpts from the interview with pictures of his collection and most valuable games.

VGPC: You go by DreamTR online, but what is your real name and where do you live?
DreamTR: My name is Jason Wilson and I live in Nashville, TN

VGPC: How many video games and systems do you own?
DreamTR: At least 15,000 games, which might be closer to 16,000 now. I have no idea how many systems I own. I also own about 100 arcade and pinball machines.
Huge Video Game Collection 1
Huge Video Game Collection 2
Huge Video Game Collection 3
Huge Video Game Collection 4

VGPC: What do you do for a living that lets you buy that many games?
DreamTR: I own a video arcade called Game Galaxy in Nashville.
Video Game Arcade 1
Video Game Arcade 2

VGPC: And how much do you think you've spent over the years amassing that amazing collection?
DreamTR: Not as much as everyone thinks. I think it is around $100,000 during my lifetime. The collection is worth 4 times that amount now.

VGPC: Of those 16,000 games, how many do you consider to be "rare" items. Things like test cartridges, games with only a few copies, etc?
DreamTR: I don't think test cartridges are tough to get. I have about 1,100 game prototypes for all my systems. I also own a Gold Nintendo World Championships, a Gray one, Blockbuster Genesis Competition cartridge, and the only Nintendo Campus Challenge ever found. I own the "rares" for practically every systems.

VGPC: Do you think you have the biggest video game collection in the world?
DreamTR: I am sure as far as "different" items go, I am up there. Anyone can pick-up multiples of games and count them towards their "collection", but my collection is of "different" games and not duplicates.

VGPC: What do you think are your 5 most rare items?
DreamTR:
Legend of Zelda NES prototype because nobody else has seen that type of PCB before.
1990 Nintendo World Championships Gold. It is basically the "holy grail" of gaming.
1992 Nintendo Campus Challenge NES. This is the only one known to exist.
First production unit off the line of the Turbo Grafx 16 System
Sock the Cat Rocks the Hill SNES. The only known version of this in the world

Zelda Prototype Cartridge

VGPC: Are those also the most expensive items or are some other games worth more?
DreamTR: The most expensive are probably the Gold and Gray Nintendo World Championships, Nintendo Campus Challenge, and Tales of the Arabian Nights. Maybe the Virtual Boy TV Boy would fetch a high price too. I'm sure there are others that I'm forgetting. It's hard to assign values on some items when there are only 1 or 2 ever made.
Gray and Gold Nintendo World Championships Cartridges Together
Gray and Gold Nintendo World Championships

VGPC: What is your favorite game in the collection?
DreamTR: 1990 NWC Gold because it took me so long to get.

VGPC: Is it true that you owned seven NWC Gold cartridges at one time?
DreamTR: Yes. I located everyone on the Nintendo Power list back in 1999 and bought as many as I could.

VGPC: If you had seven at once, why did the one you have now take "so long to get"?
DreamTR: The NWC cartridge I own now was actually in Iraq for a long time many years ago.

VGPC: What is the secret to getting so many one-of-a-kind items?
DreamTR: Having good contacts. Not low-balling people. And not alienating people that have these items for sale.

VGPC: Will there be rare games in the future or are they becoming a thing of the past because of changes to the industry like disc based games, downloadable games, etc?
DreamTR: It's definitely going to change, but video games will still be "collectible", just on a different level.

VGPC: Do you have any advice for collectors who are just starting out?
DreamTR: It's a lot easier to complete collections nowadays with the internet and the fact that high production numbers are all over the place. I would say scrounge flea markets, garage sales, and put WANTED ads up on Craig's List. That helps tremendously in this economy.

VGPC: Thank you for the interview Jason.
DreamTR: Thank you JJ
