    Not much OF a story. Originaly Sega supported the GameCube with their Sports line but decided to pull their support for several reasons such as low sales, etc. NCAA Bastkeball just happened to be in production when the decision was made.

    Some units were on shelf, got sold and the rest were pulled. Official figures put the actual number of sales at around 6,000 which by far and away makes it the rarest Cube game (as its sales were limited by Sega themselves here).

    I just picked one up for $16.99 at Gamerush. Should I hold onto it or sell it on ebay?

    Also, does anyone know the rarity/production run of the Freestyle Street Soccer releases for Blockbuster? One of the Gamerush's near my house had like 20 of them for $4.99 a piece. With the buy one get one 1/2 off that would be only $3.75 a piece. The other thing is that I've only seen them at this Gamerush, and not at any of the other ones near me.

    As for pacman vs, there was a version released normally packaged inside copies of R racing evolution but the club nintendo version of pacman vs is different in content, it has the same game but theres a club nintendo screen when it boots up & there are some extra demo stuff on the disk too.
    I own the Zelsa collection but i didnt get it through club Nitnendo. Target was giving them away with the purchase of a gamecube 2 years ago.

    I'll explain. Supply did not change, as you stated, but the DEMAND changed. I don't know if it was because the new games came out or because the onion crop was bountiful, but for whatever reason, the DEMAND went up. This is the second and equally important half of the "supply and demand" rule you apparently despise.

    The most rare US gamecube release is NCAA Basketball 2K3. The most rare US bonus/demo disc would be the Soul Calibur II demo. Also the earlier kiosk demos are very hard to get.

    Exactly how "rare" is the Soul Calibur II Cube demo? I remember right before it came out, I received a mailer at my store which contained 3 Soul Calibur II demos, one for Cube, PS2 & Xbox. I put them in a box with the rest of my demos and never really gave it much thought after that. I believe they are even still sealed. Hmmm...who knew?

    well, it should be quite easy to get from french retailers, so it's not rare yet imho, but yes, in the future this is going to be rare, as will MAXPLAY Vol. 01

    Dakar 2 is rare? Never knew that. Maybe I should go pick up that copy in Gamestation. Looks like a crap game though. Hmm

    well, i must admit i haven't watched it lately but a while ago you'd have to wait up to 2 weeks for it to show up on ebay, that's pretty scarce for a current generation title

    what is gamestation asking for one? if it's cheap you might have to grab one for me

    It's actually a decent game if you like racers. It's a little too short, though.

    I hardly saw a copy of that game here.
    Also "Casper" is also on top of the PAL list

    Can anyone confirm or deny the rarity of Spirits & Spells?

    It's only been mentioned in here once, but looking back, I've only seen it once (today, in fact), and it doesn't seem to have popped up on eBay that often.

    Whereas Kris and I both have a copy and we've seen at least another 3 in the shops around her area

    Maybe Chicago has them all? :P

    But yeah, it doesn't appear on eBay that much... it's an uncommon at best me thinks.

    Hey Karl, if you want a Spirits & Spells I can grab you one at a Gamestop near where I work. They also have a WTA Tour Tennis and a Disney Skateboarding too.

    I can grab a Spirits and Spells and WTA here, though I am interested in the Disney Skateboarding. Is it minty complete?
