    i got my SC2 demo off ebay about a year ago now, perhaps a little more. the auction included the ps2 and xbox versions as well. picked up all 3 for $25 or so. they're actually on ebay quite often, but i've often found them with horrible listing names, or including in more generic "collection of video game demos" bundles. finding the cardboard sleeve seems to be harder than finding the disc itself.

    What about the Resident Evil 4 Gamestop Edition? My Gamestop still has a few new at $45, and I am wondering if I should pick them up.

    Well 48,000 of them made, so you call whether that'll be rare or not.

    This game is one of the rarest. EA had to phase out some titles and they only made around 10,000 of NCAA Basketball 2003. I hate sports games, but would buy it for future value.

    You mean Sega here, not EA right?

    From previous talk, someone said only about 6,000 - 7,000 copies were sold before it got pulled.

    Yeah, sorry it was a Sega Sports game and it sold LESS than 6,000 sorry got my info mudled. It's worth 30-50 in my Retro Gamer magazine. Quite alot of money... Shame it's a shit sports game.

    I suppose your talking about Groove Rider: Slot Car Thunder. I've been meaning to pick up a copy myself, probably will next time I run across one. I'd put in under uncommon, I don't see it too much myself.

    I've written several articles for the magazine:

    - CGE US pre and post report
    - Ultima: Escape from Mount Drash article
    - Rare games (the one you are referring to)

    And I've helped out other writers with some of their articles "behind the scenes" as well.

    As I do this freelance (I have a proper paying job at HP here!), then my output isn't that frequent, unlike some of my friends who write for a living.

    I've got an article coming up in issue #22 for the new RG, all about Impossible Mission, so I hope you enjoy it

    I was thinking about getting a subscription. It's not just a magazine, it's like an oxford reference guide to buying and selling games. One of the best magazines I've ever read (obviously the best games magazine). Buy HP do you mean the printer manufacturer?

    Yeah, that HP, but I'm an ex-red (Compaq) person merged into the company when the two came together. HP is more than just printers; they do services, hosting, PCs, scanners, cameras, and what I'm involved with, NonStop.

    Possibly mentioned, but since this has only been out a week or three (and since Mayhem's got telly-vision as his avitar) Chibi-Robo is going to be a toughie to get pretty damn soon.

    We got it last night and its got that totally quirky Japanese style game down pat. Its an excelent purchase, just not quite worth the $50 it's currently costing.
    Because it makes no attempt to be great, it is therefore extremely great.

    You knows it, Chibi Robo is the shitnaz currently on the Cube here

    I'm not sure where the "not worth $50" comes from though as you're looking at over 20 hours of gameplay probably to complete it (from those I know who've beaten it). I'm on about 12 hours so far with a ranking of #4, but there's still lots more to go...

    And there's some interesting stuff in there... family disfunction? Divorce? Hardly kiddy stuff here me thinks. Plus talking frogs, a dog that hates you, eggs on patrol, a mummy in love, aliens, a woode pirate, a giant robot and the cutest flying lovable television ever made heh.

    From a consumer stand point Chibi Robo seems more like a gimmick game - a concept idea, kind of like Katamari Damacy, and really doesn't seem to hold $50 of substance.

    From a buisness standpoint, it seems rather arrogant that Nintendo thinks they can take a game straight from corners of Japan, with no big name license and expect it to sell. At the highest give it to consumers for $40, reel in the ones interested, and when sales drop lower it to $30 and get those on the fence. Even games like Battalion Wars, Fire Emblem and Donkey Kong: Jungle Beat had some kind of familiar license, and an installed fanbase, and all sold like crap, where the hell does Nintendo get the idea anyone wants to lay down $50 on some random game?
    Mostly just play Nintendo 64. If you've got games PM me! Cart only.

    Strange you mention Katamari here... for in the UK, EA have priced the sequel at 40 GBP (or $70) when it retailed for $30 in the US. Hopefully it will still sell due to the word-of-mouth and the lack of a release here for the first game.

    On the other hand, Sony are selling Shadow of the Colossus in the limited version for 30 GBP (standard PS2 game price) instead...
