I bought the GTA one way back then. The safe deposit box is very well made, but I don't really have much that it's good for (kind of obvious for a thief that goes looking for the good stuff).

The gym bag that comes with it has come in handy often, but it isn't the best quality. Almost all of the buttons that hold the carrying handles together fall off. The zippers are still intact, and it's cool to have the Rockstar logo on the bag itself.

Your article is crap, don't post junk like this on a news site again. Damn bait article.

JJ Hendricks said...

@anonymous - Sorry you didn't like the article. Any particular reason you disliked it?

Our website is not a news website, but a website about video game collecting and video game prices. This article fits in those two categories perfectly.

YOu forgot the COllector Edition of Deus Ex 3. It was so feaking limited that you can barely find any informations about it, but it does exist, its right beside me right now.

Anonymous said...

wow thats to much money lol i bet a lot of people are not going buy a 3000 dollar video games edition lol wtf no one is not going buy that for 3000 bucks there worth 100bucks thats kinda stupid to sale a game for thousands of dollars thats dumb

Anonymous said...

wtf man you selling all of that for thousands of dollars lol i can find i better deal for that stuff dude thats worth a 100 bucks you crazy no one cant afford it lol do u get it maybe no lol people in the country are strulgling for money lol i mean people dont get paid enough look at u selling it for a high price u gotta reude tthat prises it should be a 100 bucks thats a rip of im not paying a fortune for that

Anonymous said...

The Infamous 2 collector's edition is actually only $60, at least at gamestop. I know because I got the game a month after release for $60 and the next freaking day found out the hero edition was $60.

They could have raised it back near a hundred but why if u lpwered it $40 a month after it came out?

JJ Hendricks said...

@anonymous - Infamous 2 Hero Edition was $99 when it first came out. Gamestop might have lowered the price after a month (that is very common if an item isn't selling fast enough).

JJ Hendricks said...

There is a brand new Uncharted 2 Fortune Hunter available on ebay right now

Anonymous said...

Hyperdimensional Neptunia it took almost 6 mouths and going to almost every gamestop within almost 60 miles to track the limited edition, but end up with a Japanese copy the game by it self and finally the limited edition. When I tried on ebay it I though I could try and bid on it for retail price but ended at over 300 dollars no joke....

JJ Hendricks said...

@anonymous - Wow. Way to track down the game. The eBay prices are pretty crazy on that game. I really wonder how many were actually made to make it so expensive.

looper_k said...

i wonder how much will the Diablo III: Collector's Edition box cost ? will it top uc2 ce ?

JJ Hendricks said...

@looper_k - The initial cost will probably be around $99 or so but definitely depends on what Blizzard decides to include.

Resale wise, it depends on how many they actually produce. My guess is the collector's edition for Diablo III will not be very hard to find.

Lonnie said...

With less than 15 known copies to exist, it's hard to believe that NBA Elite 11 is still 2nd behind Uncharted, where there were 200 released. Oh well, I'm hoping that eventually it will become the rarest game on the PS3 so I can officially say that I own the rarest game on a certain system! :)

JJ Hendricks said...

@Lonnie - the big thing keeping the price on NBA Elite down is the question marks surrounding the number of copies in existence. We know exactly how many copies of Uncharted were made, but nobody really knows how many NBA Elite were made.

Maybe it is super rare and only 15 were actually made, or EA might have boxes of them at a warehouse somewhere that they never distributed but could release on the market someday to make a quick buck.

I have written about this more extensively here.

Anonymous said...

What about the limited editions of Hyperdimension Neptunia MK 2 and Atelier Meruru.

Both were only sold on the NISA website, not at Game Stop or any retailer so this has to make them much more rare.

They are going for 100-150.00 each new on eBay.

They should be somewhere mentioned. I also don't see them listed in your price charts price guide.


JJ Hendricks said...

@anonymous - Thanks for the heads up on those two titles. We have added the limited editions to our database and will be tracking their prices.

They were very recent releases so they hadn't even come out when this article was written. On the next update I will be sure to add them if they still remain expensive.

Anonymous said...

why on earth are the Fall Out 3 Amazon Survival Editions going for 10,000 on has someone really bought one for that price?!

JJ Hendricks said...

@anonymous - Nobody is paying those prices. The game last sold on eBay for $600 when brand new and the one before that was $800.

People can set their own prices on Amazon so low volume items like this one might have a really high list price, but it doesn't mean anyone is buying it. You should always use sold prices in conjunction with list prices to know what the actual market price is.

Anonymous said...

Don't Forget The IdolM@STER 2 and Vol. 5 for example it's rare, Look at the prices. Also Aquanaut's Holiday: Hidden Memories for PS3 is Ultra Rare in english format.

Anonymous said...

Gal*Gun & Blood Siren Curse both rare for the PS3 low quantitys

JJ Hendricks said...

@anonymous - Gal*Gun is only available in Japan, but it is pretty expensive and fairly rare.

Siren: Blood Curse was not released in the USA either, but Europe this time. It is about $35-40.

@JJ Hendricks

Toro Anniversary Collection "(english Version)"
Is rare? sold out everywhere
Don't forget Gravure For You! Vol. 5 ? maybe rare.

Unknown said...

I wonder if SingStar Latino will rise in value, seeing as how they were sold in GameStops in certain states from what I heard.

Jeremy said...

I need advice should I open my copy of Toro Anniversary Collection "(english Version)" or should I keep it untouched... I look forward for a reply, your help is greatly appreciated

JJ Hendricks said...

@Jeremy - If you want to keep the item as a collector's piece then definitely keep it sealed. It will be worth a lot more sealed than opened.

If you want to play the game though, go ahead and open it so you can enjoy it.

Anonymous said...

So how much is uncharted 2, infamous 2 and heavy rain now that they are black label games? Used or New?

Anonymous said...

I just can not find PS3's Deadliest Warriors Ancient Combat(specially sealed ones) for sell on the net!!!! JJ, any explanation?

Anonymous said...

Ar tonelico Qoga: Knell of Ar Ciel and Hyperdimension are not rare at all, you can still get them new for 25.

JJ Hendricks said...

@anonymous - Since this article was written in 2011, both of those games have been reprinted. You are right that they are very easy to find now.

This article will be re-written in the near future with updated prices.

Folklore is so hard to find geez!

Anonymous said...

You can easily find Folklore on ebay for around $20.00

Micheal Clark said...

Awesome work! That is quite appreciated. I hope you’ll get more success.

Sealed copies of 'Nier' are starting to fetch some nice change. Even on Amazon they are selling for above retail price which is not bad considering this game came out 2010.

Unknown said...

Are you looking for best of American Basketball Videos & DVD's ? If yes, then you are at the right place. Look for more.

Unknown said...

I still have my limited edition of Assassin's Creed but I didn't realize it was worth anything.

I still have the metal tin, the game and the artbook but I don't know what happened to the Altair statue. Probably not worth near as much without the complete set though.

Jenifer Lisa said...

These all are such a great and excellent games for playstation 3. It's too expensive in cost but also a nice choice to have a wonderful gaming. This games would be a worth to get for Playstation 3 gamers.

Rina said...

Thank you.

NBA Elite 11's stream looks like a genuine basketball game instead of a dunk fest.The control plan is essentially perfect here.An adaptable directional pad and two multi-purpose buttons serve as the functional tools expected to pass,shoot,block, and steal away the rock from your adversary.Shooting takes a short time to acclimate to.
@Jeff Collins.

mogodesigner said...

Hyperdimension Neptunia for PS3 sells for $24.99 brand new, for $18.99 on ebay. not sure how it's worth $100

Dungeonsdeep said...

Kinda wish we could get a list of just standard games that make the cut. All the collectors edition stuff is sort of a different realm of value.

TheCollector said...

Don't seem to find Ra One (Indian Exclusive) on the list. The Price has drastically increased over the years.

JJ said...

@TheCollector - We have Ra One PS3 listed on our site and we are tracking the value. That game is only PAL region though and this list is for NTSC games only.
