    I saw a copy of "Sneakers" at EB the other day, i looked at it trying to remember what someone had said about that game..

    And "Gauntlet: Dark Legacy" was difficult to find here. I looked all over town and only EB had a copy. $25 got me a used copy with no manual and a disc of questionable quality.





    Which is why i found a copy on Ebay.

    Possibility is infinity! You must be satisfied!

    We have three copies of Sneakers in the store. People keep buying them for their kids and returning them because they're supposedly awful games.

    Spikeout only seems rare because Gamestop never carried it so any copies in Planet X/Gamestop/Babbage's/Funco Land/Software Etc. at the time would be ones people traded in. It's really not hard to find at all though.

    I'd argue that there's no truly rare US XBox games yet, just ones with very high demand at the moment. The only one I'd ever consider hard to get is Fatal Frame, as the copy I own is the only one I've ever seen in person.

    Barbie Horse Adventure is all over the place around here too. I think we actually still have some new copies in the drawer.

    Steel Battalion, also, almost every Gamestop in this region as AT LEAST one complete used one in very good shape. A couple of them still have new ones. If people are looking for this, Toys R' Us will clearance it for $90 sometimes.

    To me, US XBox games that will eventually become rare would be:

    Evil Dead: A Fistful of Boomstick
    Fatal Frame
    Marvel vs. Capcom 2
    Metal Slug 3
    Otogi 2: Immortal Warriors
    Pulse Racer
    Samurai Shodown V
    Sniper Elite

    Most of these you'd have to maybe check more than one store to get now, but they're easy to find once you actually start looking.

    Silent Scope Complete banks decently on ebay while it has far fewer copies available at any given time compaired to say "Marvel Vs. Capcom 2". I think its not OMG fucking RARE but definatly hard to find because I've yet see one in the wild.

    I have to disagree with you there. I know this because I purchased my copy at my local Gamestop.

    Also, Fatal Frame must be a regional thing because I see it around here from time to time.

    From my experiences collecting for Xbox, the game that I have not seen for a long time is Loons. I have just reached 215 games for the Xbox and it really all depends what game store you go to because where I live in Woodbridge Virginia, each game stores seems to have a different personality when it comes to used and new games. Most of the games stated in this thread I have found at pawn shops or GameCrazy.

    Really? Like what, A mouse having to eat cheese while.. Dancing to those mario cartoon "Songs"? If so, i can see why.

    I saw a copy of that game a few months ago.. For $13.. No manual. Glad i didn't buy it. I would have only bought it because of the rarity, keep in mind.

    Are you sure it wasn't a used copy? We never had a new SKU for it here.

    Did Rent a Hero ever come out in the US?

    When I worked at Babbages, we had a used sku in the computer, and I remember EGM reviewed it. Ive aways wanted to play it, because I love Sega, and quirky japanese titles.

    Hasanyone ever seen it?

    At least in this area with Spikeout, I preordered it because I heard it was going to be a beat-em-up, and it would be produced in very limited quantities. While I didn't believe the limited quantities stuff, I love beat-em-ups. So...

    The EBGames that I bought it from got one copy -- mine. The manager really wanted the game after seeing it from me, and it took him over a month to find a copy of it. That's the last time I've seen it 'in the wild', but judging by eBay prices, it definitely isn't that rare elsewhere.

    I had a couple of bricks of five each of them in the back of my store at one point, it can't be all that rare. :P

    The Xbox version was only released in Europe while the Gamecube version was only released in the US.

    There is a limited Eurogamer edition for Alien Hominid. Only 100 copies made for each consol (xbox and ps2), individually numbered 1 to 100 and signed by Tom Fulp (lead programmer) and Dan Paladin (lead artist), enclosed in a special slipcase and comes with a limited edition T-shirt.

    So has anyone been looking for a game they simply couldn't find anywhere? Including Ebay.

    I don't think anything is that unavailable yet.

    I had a problem finding Dai Senryaku VII when it came out, but I'm seeing it pretty commonly nowadays. I think there must have been a second shipment, because it was actually a PAIN to find there for the first month or so.

    And the Worms games all caused me a bit of trouble to track down at first. I ended up going to eBay, but there usually aren't too many copies up at a time.

    What's everyones opinion on the MotoGP games? I know 3 is somewhat easy to find since it just came out this past summer, but 1 & 2 have always been sparse around here (especially MGP1).

    Strange how MGP 2 sells for $30 used at Gamestop and EB, whereas MGP3 sells for $25. :/

    It's been mentioned here before, but the most obscure I've encountered is easily Roller Coaster Tycoon. My copy is the only one I've ever seen.

    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've seen Spikeout for XBOX quite a lot...

    Roller coaster Tycoon is pretty hard to get in all regions,
    I know here in Aus I got 5 Copies in My shop and it took
    2 years to sell them and as it turned out they all went to
    people who where travelling through the town and decided
    to call in just to look for that title! after further research
    I have noticed here in Aus anyways that it is one of the hardest
    xbox games to get.

    This continuing trend to have a "Collectors edition" or whatever will probably make collecting xbox interesting as time goes on.

    2 I have are Doom3 with the metal case and Mech Assault 2. The case is just shiny but has a bonus disc with g4tv shit on it.

    I think theres a Special edition Jade Empire too.

    I dunno if there is already a thread on this special edition crap. Im lazy.

    Yeah, there is a "limited edition" of Jade Empire. Frankly though, I've seen more copies of the limited edition than the regular one.

    The 2nd Steel Battalion game "Line of Contact" was real hard for me to find. i have only seen it in my store once and that's the one i bought.

    Silent Scope complete with the gun in the original box is also not that common.

    Since Sothy mentioned Collectors Editions...

    Other 'Collectors Editions' include

    Call Of Duty 2
    Mark Eck's Gettin' Up
    Need For Speed Most Wanted: Black
    True Crime: NY

    They'll all be annoying to get in a while. True Crime is already uncommon, and the NFS one isnt seen alot either.
    Because it makes no attempt to be great, it is therefore extremely great.
