    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.
    This is my BOOM STICK !!!!

    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.

    Later,
    Chrome...
    Theres a bunch of Not for Resale Xbox games. and all of them are pretty easy to get used except the sports one (that slips my mind at the moment) and Halo. Halo is so out there in its (5 yes 5 versions (original, Chrome GOTY, regular GOTY, NFR and Platinum versions) that the game itself isnt rare, just the NFR print on it thats annoying to get for that variant hunter. And i've been seeing a decent number of Halo XBox's lately to boot which only +'s up those NFR Halo's.

    I didn't mention Halo 2 only because its everywhere. I don't see a gamestop/EB that doesnt have at least one or two copies in it at any given time.

    Some true hard to finds for me have been

    Spy Vs Spy
    DDR Ultramix Big Box version (the one with the pad). Hell all the Big Box'd Xbox games are annoying to really get ahold of.

    Safe to say that it's the single RAREST Xbox game, I've seen other aforementioned rare titles in store shortly after release, but not this one. You can't even find this game easily on eBay nor half.com, while some rare titles are abundant online if you're willing to fork out the $$.

    So, we have

    Roller Coaster Tycoon
    Marvel vs Capcom 2 (I sold a sealed copy for $100 last year)

    What about Batman: Rise of Sin Tzu Action Figure Collector's Edition? Finding one that hasn't been smashed up in the back room is pretty hard, and I don't often see copies in any condition. In fact, I've only seen two. I know 15,000 were made, but the original 50 or 60 dollar price was quickly slashed to 19 when it was clear that no one wanted it.

    The big box Rainbow Six 3 with mic is probably just as annoying to get as the Batman is (in a un nuked case). All the ones I ever saw were at Circuit Cities and they had Security Spiders on them, crushing the boxes.

    There's actually a 6th version of halo out there that's incredably rare. It's a not for resale version of the original cover art. It was only availible to microsoft employees who worked on the xbox. It was only availible for a few months too... Actually, almost all xbox games have a "not for resale" case design for the microsoft employees. Once they ran out of the initial stock on the halo NFR, they switched to the standard cover art.

    Thats is not a variant."although it does have the not for retail case" Its simply the sticker they slap on shit when you buy it at the Microsoft store.

    Ive seen it on Bloodwake and some others.


    "I just reread what you posted"


    It is another variant. I thought you were referring to the sticker.

    I'd say the Rainbow Six one is harder to get by far. I have four Rise of Sin Tzu's in new condition sitting in a draw that no one will ever buy all for $19.99. They're not going anywhere.

    Yeah...my copy of Forza is like that (courtesy of a friend who worked for MS at the time). It is unusual, though, to see them in the wild.
