Not all that great but if you like why not be happy with your self.

I found one for $20 then sold it on ebay for $70. I never did figgure out why it went for so little.

PS1 Suikoden II complete (looks great) $90
PS1 Tales of Destiny no manual $20

I can't believe someone would pay that much for this game. I just listen one BIN on the bay for 90 and it sold in a day. It was in good condition, and honestly listed with some slight surface scratching, and I was actually surprised someone bought it for that much. You can find them through other channels. I don't think the game is that rare. I've seen it in game stores twice in the past year or two. I didn't buy it the first time I saw it, but didn't make that mistake this time. I quickly sold it after playing it for a little while though... Bought it at EB by the way.

Awesome, its worth just about that much, perhaps.

I got mine from Virgin Megastore a few years back for 9.99$, probably my best find.

Enjoy man, in my opinion it's the best game in the series by far.

I've sold 3 copies for $125 in the past month! The game isn't that hard to find. I find it more difficult to get a hold of Valkyrie Profile myself.

11-14-2005, 09:25 PM
Congratulations. :) It's a high price, but if it's better than the norm, nobody can put that down.

I was fortunate in that my boyfriend bought it when it was brand new, so I never had to worry about buying it. However, since he played the heck out of it, it's not in mint condition anymore.

Just curious, how much did they charged you for it at EB??

I should sell my Suikoden I+II, Valkyrie Profile, Lunar I+II, Street Fighter Collection I+II, Thousand Arms, and Breath of Fire III and IV on Ebay. I'll probably get a guaranteed $300+

Sylentwulf
11-15-2005, 09:35 AM
Odd, there have been quite a few that sold for less than $100, hate to be a parade pisser, but $150 is not the average price:
Sold Suikoden 2 games (http://search-completed.ebay.com/search/search.dll?sofocus=so&sbrftog=1&fstype=1&from=R10&catref=C6&satitle=%22suikoden+2%22+-3+-4+-IV+-III&sacat=-1%26catref%3DC6&fsop=1%26fsoo%3D1&sargn=-1%26saslc%3D2&sadis=200&fpos=03235&sacqyop=ge&sacqy=&fis=2&ftrt=1&ftrv=1&saprclo=&saprchi=&so=Show+Items)

In fact, there isn't a single one that sold over $135 in the past month.

Since when does this game sell for $150? I just bought mine earlier this year and sealed copies were going for $150-200. You picked a bad time of the year to make this purchase. If it really is going for $100+ then it is just due to the holiday season.

Yeah... I've been trying to grab a good Suik II price myself, and $100 is the average.

And don't we have a find thread where we all get to brag about our latest acquisitions?

And $200 on gasoline driving from store-to-store-to-store trying to find it! $209.99 total!!! LOL Hey - you guys "pissed on my parade" so I can piss on yours. j/k LOL - My ****ing boss makes me work the ****ing weekends.

Cheers to YE who have time to waste searching flea markets. I don't have that luxury. Had 5 spare minutes at work - saw a cheap Ebay auction - grabbed it. I spent $100 but the time saved not driving around is far far far more valuable.
:D

$219.95 New at amazon.com At least I didn't buy that!!! Then I'd be a :monkey:

It is going to be rereleased on PSP in Japan. People aren't certain if it will make a US release or not. That'd be the reason for me selling one of my favorite games of all time. I'm guessing it will drop in price temporarily when it is rereleased.

I still can't believe I grabbed both of these in the wild last week. As far as the rarity goes, the ones I saw bought last week are the only ones I've seen.

Where did you buy them, and How much did you pay?

I saw both of the games at EBGames for $40 and $50. Suikoden II being the $50 one. (Both complete) I didn't buy them, though.

i think i paid the same for mine...


i passed on valkyrie profile "new" at Gamestop late last year for $30. haven't found it again... BTW, it was the typical Gamestop "new" game where it was opened already and there were scratches on the discs. The scratches are the reason I passed...probably should have got it, because it goes for a good amount (which I do not want to pay)!

Daria

While it's pretty cool you got Suikoden 2 and everyting, $100 is about the going rate. But look at the bright side, at least no one can say you over paid! (:

Even if you don't want to own those games you should run back to your local EB and snatch them up just to flip them and make some quick cash. That is of course, if they were still there :-P .

I checked in EB. Suikoden II is gone now, but Suikoden I is still there. Price: $40.

Not sure if i should buy it, since it doesn't seem to go for much more than $40 on ebay. (If you are confused: I am talking about Suikoden I)

Yeah, looks like we got crossed up. The two games I was talking about in previous posts were Valkyrie Profile and Suikoden II. So when you said you "saw both" I assumed you meant those two games as opposed to Suikoden I & II

$100 isn't that bad of a price for ebay if it's complete/NM, congrats man.

good job, although, I like to spend no more than $30 on ANY games. If they are new releases, I will wait 8 months for the price to go down, and have just as much fun with it as i would when it was first released :texaschain:

Congrats on the find. Personally, I think $100 isn't half bad for it. It's a great game. Though I didn't pay more than $10 for either Suikoden I ($5), Suikoden II (about $6.67), or Valkyrie Profile ($5.95)...

For me personally, I'd rather trade it here than spend money on ebay when all I'm going to do is buy games anyways =) Besides, with all the fees you get hit with on ebay, it's not worth going there.

True, except everyone selling it here's a newbie. If a regular were to offer I'd be all over it, but giving $100 to someone I don't know who could dissapear tommorow? No thanks. But that's just a buyer's stand point. I can see why a seller would decide to use DP.

I just ment that it stikes me as odd so many of one game have been popping up lately.

ahamilton0953
01-18-2006, 09:54 AM
I think it's because its gotten out that the value is higher. I think it's tough for newbies to sell stuff, which is why i'm going the trade route, and if I dont get an offer I like I can always just wait and hold onto the game for a while.

In repsonse to the title of this thread, 100 dollars is a hell of a lot for a game. But it would have been much cooler if you had found this game chilling on a dusty shelf in a thrift store for 3 dollars.
