    Default Rare Xbox Games

    I've found the rarest PS2 and Gamecube games threads but I can't seem to find one for the Xbox. Are there any rare games for the Xbox?

    I'm not sure how rare it is, but Steel Batallion isn't exactly easy to find.

    I believe marvel vs capcom 2 is rare, not too sure if it is rare or just in high demand though.

    TJ&E definatly is not rare, every Game Stop has at least one copy around here at $14.99. Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 has a lower print run but not really rare either just "in demand".

    Air Force Delta Srike or whatever its called was the RARE Xbox game for awhile but I believe it had a reprint.

    It isn't a big money game, but a lot of hardcore Xbox collectors agree that F1 2001 is the hardest game to find for Xbox. I've been collecting Xbox for over 2 years now and have over 100 games for the system. I've never seen a copy of F1 2001 during all my hunts in the wild, so I think I agree with that.

    Some other Xbox games that I never see anywhere are Shattered Union, Dai Senryaku VII, and Sniper Elite.

    Haha, figures. Must be one of those "regional" things then.

    Anyone see that "Loons" (Loony Toons) game for Xbox? I heard that one was pretty rare and I've only seen that once before in the wild. Didn't pick it up though 'cause the box was beat to shit.

    I'd definitely add Marvel vs Capcom 2, Roller Coaster Tycoon, Fatal Frame 1. However, Shattered Union, Dai Senryaku VII, and Sniper Elite aren't rare, just look at how many are available on half.com, I have one Dai Senryaku VII on half.com now.

    F1 2001 isn't very rare in my opinion. Perhaps you're getting confused with EA's F1 2002 for the Game Cube.

    I know a shop around here has 2 used copies every time I go in. Part of that probaly has to do with its never-dropping $35 price tag.

    A few I'd keep my eye on (I've said these before in some other threads):

    - Deathrow
    - Phantom Crash

    It also helps that both of these are excellent games. Deathrow is the hit that should have been. Every review EXCEPT EGM's was very high, and EGM's sucked because they let the fat guy that does the codes section write it (I've never seen him review another game in EGM EVER).

    Phantom Crash is what MechAssault (and MechAssault 2) should have been. Much faster, much more kickass and with Gran Turismo-esque mech customization.

    I don't know if there are really any Xbox games that yet have become rare when you don't take regions into account. A bunch of the games that were mentioned already in this thread -- Marvel Vs. Capcom 2, Roller Coaster Tycoon, Fatal Frame and Deathrow -- I can find in a bunch of stores around Milwaukee. I can say that I have seen them all within the past year multiple times.

    The one exception is Loons, which I only remember seeing once because I picked it up to look at it thinking what in the world was it, glanced at it and though, "Okay." and put it back. I haven't seen it since.

    Around here, fromt he games I have been looking for, it is hard to find Alien Hominid (was it released stateside for the Xbox?), Metal Slug 4 & 5 (although I can find that online really easily) and Spikeout: Battle Street. With the exception of Alien Hominid, I know that I can find the other two in plentiful quantities if I want to pay for shipping on them though.

    I'm almost positive Alien Hominid was only released for PS2 and Game Cube.

    I don't think there are any truly rare Xbox games. Some may be hard to come by due to demand, but none are actually scarce. That may not be a distinction anyone cares about though.

    A few difficult to acquire games are:
    -Barbie Horse Adventures
    -Air Force Delta Storm
    -Jurassic Park
    -Gauntlet Dark Legacy (maybe)
    -Steel Battalion will probably be tough later on. At least complete.

    Alien Hominid is on the Xbox, PAL at least.

    I think you may have to order it direct online though, but I'm
    happy because I got mine for 1 :P

    Dai Senryaku VII is definately not hard to find, depending where you live. Every Shopko and Pamida I've been to has several copies for $9.99. I've seen it as low as $7.99 a few times last year.

    There was indeed a "rare Xbox games" thread before this one:

    In discussion of most of the posts:

    PDorr3: I would assume MVC2 is just very saught after, thus making it rare because many owners of it are not trading it in.

    Bluteg: Air Force Delta Storm was rare, it was pulled off the shelves after 2 or 3 weeks.....I got my sealed copy from Joe (thanks!)....I'm not sure about a reprint though....

    norkusa: F1 2001 is indeed hard to find....I've never seen a copy of it....and I only know, not personally, one person that has it.....I also heard Loons was rare, but I can't comment on that....

    djbeatmongrel: I have a copy of Volvo: Drive For Life sealed.....it wasn't hard at all to get....I dropped $17 shipped for it on eBay.....$17 is less than a $20 Platinum Hits game.....and the last time I did check there were loads of copies on eBay....I don't know now though....

    keiblerfan69: Kakuto Chojin was pulled off the shelves, but I don't feel that it is rare....I got my copy for like $5 and there were a bunch of other copies there with it.....

    DrJustinRamone: Didn't they drop down very low prices shortly after release....I don't know about currently, but I believe they were pretty abundant not too long ago.

    goatdan: Alien Hominid was not release for XBox in the USA...only PS2 and GCN. Spikeout: Battle Street was easy to get when it first came out and I still see loads of pre-owned copies around....might be regional....

    muffinman943: 9 Holes Of Xmas, 9 More Holes Of Xmas, and Red Hot were easy to get and plentiful...I had a couple copies of some of them for a while. Holiday Golf, the Toys 'R Us exclusive version of 9 Holes Of Xmas was however pretty hard to get. Sneakers, also a TRU exclusive, might not be the easiest thing to find either.

    The Worms games for the xbox all took me a while to find. (Forts was the easiest.)

    It's so disappointing that they're rather mediocre.
