    Default Where to buy Rockman complete works? (Jap PS One)

    I'd like to buy the Rockman complete games for PS One

    Does anyone have these for sale?

    All I can find online is one copy of Rockman complete works #1 for $50

    16-bit has a ps1 rockman boxset on ebay right now....but its pricey. These and the single releases are only getting harder to find. Even the Books re-releases are hard to get now.

    I have Rockman 2 for ps1, first release version NOT the Books release. Brand new only opened to check contents. 100% complete with spine, etc. LITERAL BRAND NEW condition, not a mark or blemish on the thing.

    $30 +shipping and its yours.

    I didn't find that on eBay before, but damn you're right it's pricey. I don't care to spend extra on sealed as I'm going to play them anyway

    PM sent re rockman 2! I can't wait to be able to use my pocketstation with it.

    What do you mean by books re-release? I didn't know these were re-released.

    yup it was re-released in the psone Books series. Basically this is how Japanese releases work.

    -First Editions

    -The "Best" editions (equivalent to US/Canada Greatest Hits releases)

    -Psone Books (These are final re-releases that come in super slim, CD-R style cases with no back insert.)

    Some First Editions did not receive Best editions, but did get a Books release (Rockman complete works)

    Some First Editions were updated with new content for The Best release (Vampire Saviour)

    Some Games Received all three releases (Dracula X)

    Books editions are worth SIGNIFICANTLY less than the first edition counterparts. Personally I hate them and dont even touch the things. All Books editions you can instantly tell by the case cause its super slim with no back insert, and it says "PSONE BOOKS" on the front of the manual, CD face, and spine card. Same with Best editions, it says "THE BEST" everywhere.

    Cool thanks for the info. I had no idea about Japanese ps one releases.

    I notice that the complete works box set includes the books releases. That seems a little weird given the price of it.

    I sold my set to a Norwegian buyer last year for $330. It's still a bit pricey, but I think that was about as cheap as I'd seen one sell for in recent years.

    (Fun Fact: I bought mine from Mad-Gear/16-bit back in 2006 for $150)
    RIP bargora, you will be greatly missed.That is how we do things on Giedion Prime.

    I have a complete (new, basically) Rockman 4 PSOne Books release (and yes, it does actually have a back insert)...

    really? these must be the only releases with backs then. I have had Dracula X, Gradius Gaiden, and Vib Ribbon which do not have back inserts.

    D'awwww... I just went and checked my copy of RM4, and it does not actually have the back insert... it's just the back of the manual designed to look like the back insert.
    D'oh! Sorry for the misinformation.

    Are these really so hard to find? Just searching for "Rockman" on eBay I found a few hits for PS1 games.

    here's a $40 copy of Rockman 1 for example. From a Japanese seller so its probably legit (I also saw another Rockman 1 and a Rockman 6, both those were from a guy in Hong Kong...)

    They're not that hard to find, but they're hard to find for under $40-$50
