    Default The rarest DS game?

    Are there rare games for the DS already ?

    I heard Cocoto: Kart Racer is pretty hard to get ?

    I'm guessing cocoto is a european release since i don't have it down for my US DS release list.

    As for US DS games - it really depends on where in the country you live but games like mini-rc rally and princess natasha saw relatively limited releases. Also Madden 06 didnt have too many copies released where as madden 05 and madden 07 had quite a few released.

    As far as US releases, maybe Break 'em All. Stylus controlled Pong/Arkanoid variant. Rather nice game and almost completely ignored and/or under radar.

    Break 'em All is easy to find out here. They have it at Costco even.

    I have a hunch this thread, like the other rarest game for current gen system threads, is going to consist mostly of someone mentioning a title and someone else saying "OMG these are like SMB/DH out here."

    Seriously though, how about Electroplankton?

    Yeah, Electroplankton has been extremely hard to find. It's going for like 50-60 on ebay.

    Toys 'R Us and Gamestop both sold it briefly.

    I've heard a bit about Wiffle Ball - in fact, the only place I've seen the game was Toys R' Us about a month back.

    I was just going to say Wiffle Ball. I still have not seen it in stores.

    Really? I think my TRU still has copies. I could've swore I saw some the last time I was in there (right after Christmas).

    I believe the rarest US game is Monopoly/Boggle/Yahtzee/Battleship. While there are tons of the UK version for sale on ebay, there are rarely only 1 or 2 US versions, and I have never seen them in the stores.

    Regional distribution crap... yet again!

    Yeah, WTH is Electroplankton? Possibly the rarest game with the highest demand? I can't see people foaming at the mouth over Monopoly/Boggle/Yahtzee!/Battleship honestly. Them Brain Age geezers might though. I keed, I keed.

    There are a few board game collections on the DS and they seem to be scattered around in my area. I want to say I've seen that one on TRU shelves just the other week, but then I could be wrong.

    How about Ping Pals? It seems many wonder why it was ever released at all.

    Here in Ontario, Ping Pals is quite common, got clearanced out at TRU. Break Em All is still in Wal-Mart's bargain bins here and not selling at all...tons of em. Electroplankton is still fairly expensive, but every EB here has at least one copy. Wiffle Ball is on the shelves at pretty much every Wal-Mart. However, I've never seen the board game combo game cyberfluxor mentioned, and I've never seen mini-rc rally or princess natasha at all.

    I've seen that game all over the place. Haven't given it much of a second look, because it doesn't really interest me, but I never thought about it possibly being rare.

    Of all the games mentioned so far, I've never seen Elektroplankton of Wiffle Ball on the shelves before.

    Wiffle Ball DS seems readily available online (KBToys.com, Walmart.com, and DeepDiscountDVD.com all have the game in-stock as of the time of this posting).

    My vote for rarest DS game goes to Monopoly/Boggle/Yahtzee/Battleship.
    If I failed to leave feedback for you on a deal, please contact me.

    Electroplankton will probably be one of the more rarer titles, due to it's limited release and limited appeal to most consumers (I think Nintendo should probably re-release it at a cheaper price as a 'Touch Generations' title).
