    Just to drive a point home... Jedi Knight 2 is perceived rarity based on regions. It's merely uncommon around these parts (one store had three copies in stock a few weeks ago.

They charged me as if I bought Metroid Prime and LOZ:Wind Wakers seperately($4.99 and $12.99 respectively). I thought this was a rip off, so I said no thanks and left. But after thinking about how I'd never seen this before--I went back for it later that day. So for anyone looking for this game, call your local Gamestop/EB and ask if they have any in stock. I'm sure they have to pop up from time to time. Unless I just got super lucky.

Turns out the guy at the store took it in only with Zelda so he just stuck a Wind Waker price tag on it. I ended up buying a Prime separately and stuck the disc in. Nobody at the store seemed to know what it was. Not that I blame them as neither did I. But from what I can tell, Gamestop hasn't figured out what to do with the game so they just do the logical thing and add together the two prices. And in reality, that makes a lot of sense since there's nothing "different" about the package aside from the insert. People charging nearly $50 for it on Ebay are taking advantage.

    Even if the thing is "rare" (which I doubt), what exactly is rare about it? Not the discs...not the manuals...not the double disc case. Hell, even the insert looks like it's just a really well done Photoshop edit.

    Must be in demand if the price remains above $30. Actually as mentioned earlier one Gamestop I was in during November had three copies in it as well. Mind you, no other store (of many) I went in had a copy...

    I don't think it's super rare. But the stand alone copies both made Nintendo's Players Choice subset. So I would assume they both sold atleast 500,000-700,000 copies each. As for the bundle 2-in-1 version, they probably didn't even make more than 200,000 of those. Of course, thats just a guess, but the fact that it rarely comes up on ebay or is found in the wild is why some people pay $50 and up for it.

    We can say many thanks to success of Wii, making it harder to find GC games used and new as many gamers discover what GC has to offer (which they missed out last generation).

    IMHO, the rarest games (not necessarily the most popular)

    -Goblin & Commander
    -Ikaruga (should've kept my extra copy)
    -PSO I&II (both original and Plus)
    -Gotcha Force (still rare but Gamedude has 5 new in stock for $29.99)
    -Bust-A-Move 3000 (I got the last copy sealed at TRU back in 2004)
    -Spirits and Spells
    -Mario DDR (I don't think it's the rarest but it was among the most popular)
    -Beyond Good and Evil
    -Cubivore (still rare even with GQD reprints)
    -Most of Disney sports titles (not popular but very hard to find)
    -Digimon Rumble Arena 2
    -NCAA College Basketball 2003 (I'd hate to be a collector going after complete collection)

    Some of the games are hard to find sealed and in original non PC version but by no mean rare, and I hope GQD reprints more titles (even though I collect sealed GC games). I'll visit the GQD retail store tomorrow morning, can't wait.

    Tube Slider and Spirits and Spells. Not to mention the Pokemon box: ruby and sapphire.

    I don't count the RE games because RE2 and RE3 were reprinted. I see them everywhere in the 39.99 range.

    Gotcha Force has a really low count, although I do not know the fun factor of the game.

    Also, keep an eye on Virtua Quest, I can see that one being rare.

    I still think Rally Championship is up there too. Haven't seen it in the wild in a long time. Just looked it up on eBay and Amazon - Amazon has one copy priced at $39.99 and the only copy available on eBay right now is in PAL format. On the plus side, it'll only set you back $4.99 if you come across a used copy at a GameStop.

    i dont think their super rare and i dont know if they havent been mension because i only read this last page but Odama and the Pacmanworld2/Pacman Vs. combo (even though its a best seller) would be rather un common, especially the pacman vs. only being in the BS version which doesent seem to have been printed very much

    Gotcha Force was a GQD reprint. It was hard to find, but not anymore.

    I don't remeber as I no longer have ANY copies. I would imagine looking at a few ebay auctions will reveal it. The picture is different. I think Mario has 2 different poses.

    Does anyone know what kind of print numbers come out of GQD? Reason being, if a game originally gets a printing of 5,000 then an additional 1,000 from GQD won't mean a whole lot as far as turning a rare game into a common one. But if GQD churns out 10,000 copies then that changes things.

    Mayhem, what you were saying about finding games cheaper in the PAL regions is definitely true.

    I just found a complete US F1 2002 for 7. Hopefully I'm not overpaying.

    Well given how hard it seems to be to find, probably not!

    Does the Zelda The Wind Waker Limited edition from HMV UK count as a variation or as a rarity ? It has a sleeve exclusive to HMV UK.

    I've seen plenty. Almost every Gamestop has a copy or two and at the asking price, that's unlikely to change anytime soon. Especially since they don't even take the mat. WTF you say? Indeed.

    Finding a boxed complete one. Yeah, that's much harder.

    I just bought me an MC Groovz complete for 10$, first I've seen around my area, but I guess that sold 100k or more ?

    Probably not. If I recall correctly, Mad Catz got sued by Konami and settled the suit somehow.

    Anyone know the story/numbers behind the Star Wars: Bounty Hunter "Limited Edition Cover Art" variant? There's always one or two on eBay but I don't remember its release.
