    I was just at Gamecrazy today and they had a used copy of Eternal Darkness for $9.00 i don't think it's that hard to find if it's only $9.00 used

    Well, One of the Good Games with Zelda, The only reason I said that was it prolly where like 1000 made or less..It might go in high demand, So the price would increase

    I guess I really don't understand the question..

    There were FAR more copies of Tomb Raider: Legend than 1,000 produced. As such, it will never be rare.

    I can't track down definitive numbers either, but there were approximately 3 million copies of Legend sold across all platforms. It would be rather naive to assume that .03% of those were GameCube versions.

    Pressing and developing games is very expensive. Most large companies won't even bother with a shipment as small as 1,000 units.

    Sorry, but none of those are remotely rare.

    There are a ton of the giveaway Zelda compilation discs out there (both kinds.) They were just that - bonuses. Check ebay any day of the week - there's a ton out there.

    They're expensive because they're always in demand - not because they're rare. There's a difference.

    Eternal Darkness is also not rare, sorry to say.

    I honestly can't believe that we're still having this discussion, to be honest.

    Folks, just because you can't find a game in the wild does NOT mean that it's rare.

    Everyone needs to remember that games are shipped in varying amounts by region.

    You may get very few copies of a certain title in your town, but I may get a ton here.

    That is never a gauge of rarity.

    Also, eBay should be taken with a grain of salt. High prices for a title on eBay doesn't necessarily relate to "rarity" or even a low production run.

    It just means that the title is in demand; period.

    The games (as it almost always is for most system libraries) that will be the hardest to find as time goes by are the following:

    Shitty games from fledgling production/distribution companies.

    Games that suck are usually common, because no one wants them. However, games from smaller distributors are usually in lower supply as it is. When you throw in the fact that no one wants to play it...means eventually you won't find it at retail, and eventually much at all.

    Limited Editions/Bonus packaging games

    Because these typically are in short production runs by definition, there are usually problems with getting these complete second-hand. Most keep their copy, but those who don't usually don't sell/trade in the bonus materials that made the package what it was when they bought it.

    (For example - the Target only double disc release of Rebel Strike III (which used a two-disc case to hold the Arcade demo.) Good luck finding this one - I'm glad I kept mine.

    NCAA Basketball 2K3 by Sega

    This is the only game where an actual low production run was confirmed.

    Everything else is just speculation.

    Good luck!

    Orri~

    Well they didn't sell much.

    To me the rarest games are probably:

    1) Those I've never seen sitting on a shop shelf in the US, and I've been to countless shops AND
    2) Going for over $30 on eBay

    So that includes Jedi Knight II, Bust-a-Move 3000 (aside from the one copy I saw minus manual), Disney Basketball and Digimon World 4.

    Mayhem -

    It's been a while - how's it going?

    Yes, I would agree that the Disney Sports games are some of the harder to find titles in the GCN library. Basketball is the toughest of the four (then Football, Soccer, and Skateboarding, IMO.)

    Bust-a-Move 3000 was a TRU exclusive (at one point), so that one has always been a toughie. Not terribly hard to find used, however. One store near me has a copy right now (w/manual.)

    Don't have any comment on Digimon World 4, but Jedi Knight II would rank in my top ten toughies as well.

    Take care,

    Steve

    Not too bad thanks

    I've found and bought all the other three Disney sports games from shops in the US, but I've never ever seen Basketball. Got that new off Amazon for $25 (yeah lucked in there).

    As always pointed out, it's a regional thing. Many games I've bought I've only ever seen one copy of on the shelves of all the shops I've visited, but I'm sure they must be more common elsewhere.

    Except for NCAA Basketball 2K3... yeah even found that once, last year in the summer before Comic Con. Never seen JK2, lucked in again with it from a UK seller, 6 GBP complete (about $10).

    I don't think anything I still need is that rare, just haven't gotten around to buying it yet. I think I've got all the toughies now...

    Does anybody know how many copies of The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker / Metroid Prime were released (or more specifically, the console bundle it came in)? I was lucky to pick one up on ebay for 5 bucks due to a poor description and no picture. Didn't even know it existed until the seller confirmed the two games were in the same case. I also got a factory sealed NCAA Basketball 2k3 in trade a while back (sorry for the poor pic, taken with a phone).

    Hey, I picked up one of those Metroid/Zelda combo packs not too long ago at a Gamestop. What came with yours? I ask because the guys at the store said they only took it in with Zelda so I just bought a Prime to toss in it, too. It didn't come with any paperwork, either. I just tossed the Metroid Prime stuff inside. Are your discs just the standard discs or are they special ones specially made for the combo? Likewise does it come with a special book?

    Sorry to threadjack, btw. On topic, I think the combo pack was a pack in with a special Gamecube bundle sold at Best Buy. I can't imagine it being too rare since I doubt Best Buy would only have sold 10,000 or so bundles. I'd guess much higher than that.
