    I know Burning Rubber is really common (in the realm of GX4000 carts) since it was the pack-in game. No idea about anything else. As far as I know nothing is valueable for that system due to just about no demand for it.

    Someone mention the GX4000?

    I've been tracking all the GX4000 stuff on eBay for about the last year (only 400 games or so total), and sent a bunch of info to vintagegamecrazy ages ago, but it still hasn't been added to the online guide

    Basically, the console & Burnin Rubber are dead easy to find and worth crap all.
    Batman, World of Sports & Robocop 2 are the next most common games, and pop up once or twice a month at least. I'd say these are all worth about 10 tops, though occasionally crazy eBay bidders send them spiralling (I've seen Robocop go as high as 30 but that was a fluke).

    Switchblade, Klax, Pro Tennis Tour, Crazy Cars 2 and Barbarian are probs the next least-rare, though these are all harder to find, and usually go for 10-15.

    Above that is where it can start to get silly - I've seen Pang go as high as 70, and a couple of others are in the 40-50 range.
    I think there's 3 games (out of 26 altogether) that haven't been on eBay in the year or so I've been watching.


    Joe - if you want I could put all my info into DP Guide format & re-submit it? It is one of the biggest current omissions in the DP database.

    Oh, you obviously aren't familiar with crazy eBay UK buyers There's a few hardcore GX4000 collectors out there, and prices can get insane for some of the rarer titles.
