It's a Bergsala AB version. I've found a guy on a french forum that has it in it's collection but i didn't reach to contact him.


Can you guys help me?

Thank you :)

Not a lot. You can buy just the cart for £2 or £3, so nothing too much more

long time, no post, but here goes;

dusting off my PC-collection, I realized that I have a 'pre-order -box' for Assassin's Creed (the original)
having scoured the Internet for clues, I've found but two photographs of the box and little information; not sure if it's valuable, nor rare, or just my google-skills failing me?

above pictures being taken by me of said box, btw.

Infocom Zork I, II, III MS-DOS 5.25 original box question...

Postby mcomet » Wed Nov 08, 2017 6:53 pm

Hi,
Going through some old stuff of mine from the 80s I came across my old original boxes with 5-1/4 inch floppies of Zork 1,2,3 for MS-DOS. These are literally in mint condition with the disks, maps, and other paperwork in them. (They've been on a shelf or mostly in a box/storage) I was curious to know if these have any value at all? At some point here I will take some photos.

I can't seem to find anything to compare this to as I only see the floppies for sale, and no original boxes or Zork-Infocom PC stuff. On the one hand I am thinking to keep and be a part of my nostalgia collection I am slowing finding and re-buying for myself. (I recently found my old D&D dice and purchased an old red box). On the other hand I'm trying to scrounge up money for some other stuff and if this has any decent value and would be useful to a proper collector I might sell. Any advice is welcome...

thank you,
michael

Do glitched games have any value?

Postby gba_player_74 » Tue Dec 12, 2017 9:00 pm

I bought a Super Mario Advance 4 cartridge on ebay and it has a glitch. When you lose all your lives and get the game over screen instead of resetting the world it lets you keep on going from where you left off. Does a glitch like this give the game any value or make it worthless?

A friend of mine has a GameBoy Monster Truck Wars Complete in box , EUR version (I think the manual is in English), and he'd like to know how much one would go for, since he couldn't find any sold listings for it except the US versions. He's trying to get some money to get a CIB ff6 for the GBA (pal only).

Thanks in advance ;)

I'd say 30-60€ depending on condition.

I paid 55€ for mine and there's mint one sold here:

Still probably way low demand for it.

Re: Your thoughts on supposed "rare" games

Is the best way to know what your games are worth is to post them on here? I have some CBS and Atari games that I think are rare and I want to sell them all (including consoles and accessories). What's the best thing for me to do?

A good few on ebay for £200+ but in terms of actual sales, tends to hit about £60-£110 depending on condition. The odd ridiculously priced one too. Published by Phoenix games in some PAL territories only (Germany seems to be the most frequently found). Was more widely released in Japan. Rather late budget release of PSOne (2003 or 2004 depending on what site you ask it seems), It seems to be rather hard to find (hence the price points people try to get for it) but not overly desirable by many. Does not have the notoriety others have. Probably mostly interesting to those looking for fullsets in PAL land.

Mario Party 8 Recalled PAL "Spastic" version

Postby Jimbot80 » Fri Aug 24, 2018 3:05 pm

Hi Guys,

Not sure if this is the right place to post this but im looking for a little help.

Ive been selling a few of my games and I have come across a copy of Mario Party 8 for the wii. Whilst that game is pretty unremarkable there was a issue with the initial UK release. Early in production it was noticed that the word "Spastic" was used in one of the mini games. The problem was that this word is quite the offensive slur for disabled people here. So the game was very quickly recalled and replaced with the offensive word changed.

Now heres where I come in. My brother was working at local Woolworths store at the time and managed to nab one of this disks being sent off to be destroyed. He then gave me the disk as I owned a wii and he didnt and I only played it once to see the word and have a chuckle, then put it away to be never played again.

11 years later I found the disk...

Now I know this version is very very rare in PAL regions but I cant find any information on whether this version is worth any more then the standard reprints? If anyone has any info that would be a great help as I cant find any mention anywhere.

I also need to get hold of a wii (mine broke long ago) to get screen shots and a video as proof this is genuine (I have seen it myself so know its true)

I also only have the disk and not the case, i assume because the disks only were sent to be destroyed. However there are no obvious differences to the disk when compared to the reissues.

Thanks for any light shed on this

Hi all, I hope you can help. I have this factory sealed UK version of World League Basketball for the PS1 (see pic) , I know the UK version is the hardest to come by, the last non-sealed UK version went for £172.00, but I have no idea what this sealed version would be worth, so any help appreciated

PSP Games, UMDs, and Manual Collection (anything special?)

Postby PSA_Games » Sun Dec 30, 2018 6:56 am

Hello All,

I'm new here, but I wanted to post about my current collection of PSP Games, Game Manuals I have for the games, and UMDs. I've had these since I can remember, for many years - PSP was my childhood console!

My question entails how the games (and UMDs) I have aged in the years since their releases. From the images I'll link to in this post https://imgur.com/a/IqI1Beh, you'll see that I no longer have the cases for the games, since they were taking quite the space some years back - but I kept the manuals, and obviously the games. I'm curious at to whether these might be desirable, not because I want to sell them but rather IF I ever have to consider selling them (saving for graduate school might make that decision for me).

Anyways, hope everyone had a great Christmas, and happy New Year's!

How much is this Megadrive game worth?

Postby Segagaga » Mon Dec 31, 2018 8:59 pm

Hi,

Just joined this website. Avid MD collector since 1998. I have a lot of "rare" games I bought in the early 2000 for dirt cheap.
I know some of the prices got significantly higher since then, but I can't trust ebay prices either.

The game in question is Battle Mania Daiginjou released by VIC TOKAI. Reg card is missing, manual is a little beat up, with some humidity signs on it. Cartridge has some signs of use and the side of the box had some colors that faded away.

Ebay states this game is worth 1000$ at least which is insane and impossible to sell at this price. I bout mine in 2003 for 3000 Yen from a second hand game shop in NARA japan.

Since I am in need of cash, there is someone I know who wants to buy it from me, but at a fair price.

Any MD connaisseurs out there that can lead me?

Thanks in advance! (PHOTOS for reference)
