    Took me a while to find a copy of that in the shops, but one turned up eventually.

    With the simple use of a Freeloader import games can be easily played on the USA GCN.

    Honestly the above mentioned 3 titles are rather easy to find especially when compaired to titles like Bust a Move 3000, Rave Master, or even Virtua Quest.

    Virtua Quest is another that I forgot about, not sure if I ever saw many if any copies of.

    I finally got Jedi Outcast on the way. Did a Buy It Now auction for a mint copy, selling at 32.00+SH that nobody noticed. While others were fighting it out in bid wars I managed to swoop in and grab this one because it wasn't showing an image in the list view, only when you clicked into the auction.

    The problem with Jedi Outcast, and a LOT of GameCube games, is the difficulty in tracking down complete copies of games in good condition.

    At any given time of the week, check ebay for Jedi Outcast, and see how many are missing materials.

    I ordered a copy of Lost Kingdoms from someone about a year ago. The game arrived with no manual, and just the game and case. The game was damaged. The previous owner liked to rip it in and out of the case I guess, so the diameter of the inner circle was stretched. The game wouldn't stay seated when running in the console.

    Just the other day I saw someone selling just the game and manual for 9.50. So looks like I will own a complete playable copy of this game finally.

    Posters in this thread are listing too many games. The entire GameCube library can't be rare. We will have to wait and see what happens when people start selling their stock of GameCube games.

    There are probobly about 10 games or so that can be flagged as definatly rare. Others can only be called vaguely hard to find for now.

    None of those are, or will ever be rare. The Zelda discs are among Nintendo's most popular promotions ever. They'll be more like say, Chrono Trigger on the SNES - pricey and in high demand, but never hard to locate.

    As for Eternal Darkness, I see used copies everywhere. The game was a cult hit and it's been rumored that Silicon Knights plans to develop a sequel.

    Also, I'd say Rally Championship is possibly "top 10 rarity" material. Haven't seen a copy of that anywhere in at least a year, which makes me glad I got it when I saw it.

    Googling "Eternal Darkness" + "NPD" + "Sales Numbers" yields some fun results. For instance, through July '02, the game sold at least 170k copies (and NPD apparently only polls the top 60-80% of retailers).

    Want to see something sad? Try "Virtua Quest" + "NPD" or "Puyo Pop Fever" + "NPD".

    I'm willing to bet some of the stuff coming out this year will end up being, if not rare, than at least uncommon. Radio Allergy comes to mind.

    As many of you guys might know I was heavy into collecting for Gamecube at one point. I had every game listed in this thread. About a year ago I decided to stop collecting games. I sold off most of the collection (400+ games). I would say by far the hardest discs to find are October 2001 kiosk demo complete and the Soul Calibur II demo disc. As for games the hardest one would probably be NCAA Basketball 2K3. Here is what I stopped collecting for:

    Indeed, it took me ages to find a complete good condition copy of US JK2. After all the looking on eBay to the US, one pops up in the UK and I win it for 4 quid!

    (that's about US$7 btw)

    Likewise I also managed to get a sealed copy of BAM3000 for 6 quid (US$10) from eBay UK (which is currently in my sales list). And I got my sealed copy of Disney Basketball from Amazon for $25 which I thought was a pretty good deal considering used copies go for over $40.

    I'm going with Gotcha force. Very limited supply of that game. That or the interactive multi-game demo discs that aren't available to the public.

    I dunno, starting late last year, I've been seeing complete copies of Gotcha Force popping up in every GS/EB I went to, for about $30 used.

    They may have done a reprint, but I doubt it. The game isnt worth 29.99.

    I looked up Jedi Outcast at Amazon.com this afternoon. There were several used copies there, the cheapest (starting just over $30) were incomplete copies. There were complete used copies for a bit more and upwards to about $60 to $70. There was one new copy from the Marketplace seller who was asking $130 for it. Of course, Amazon itself had no copies.

    GameQuestDirect reprinted Gotcha Force last year. Somewhat of an odd choice, but oh well.

    They try to reprint all of the more uncommon games in the hopes to make a fortune selling them as rare.

    One game I'm pretty sure you won't see them releasing though is NCAA Basketball 2K3

    Wow, I had no idea this was a very rare game. I got a copy at a garage sales for $2 last summer. Mine's in really good shape too, except stupid Adam Nye had to go and write his name on the disk.

    There are sellers on Amazon that are insane. They charge bo-gillions of dollars hoping to rope in sucker. Unfortunatly this is a big problem, and can distort the market for some games on Amazon. At one point some jackass had F355 Challenge for the Dreamcast selling for $299.99.

    Jedi Knight 2 is worth about 30 complete used on a rarity level, but goes for 30-40 due to it being star wars related and a good game on top of that.
