Is this really worth £359.95

Postby FireflyX91 » Sun May 20, 2018 8:40 pm

Hi all.

I need this game for my PS1 PAL collection and I understand it is extremely rare. I have found a copy listed for sale on ebay but... I'm not sure the price is justified. Bearing in mind that the same seller refused an offer of £270 I made on TinTin Destination adventure, a game which I then aquired elsewhere for just over £200.

Anyway the game in question is World league Basketball. Here is the link for the ebay listing: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Playstation-1-WORLD-LEAGUE-BASKETBALL-PS1-2-3-Complete-PAL-UK/112953134007?hash=item1a4c880bb7:g:9pEAAOSwtdpa2x60

I do not have an issue paying this amount since I am serious about completing my PAL collection, I just do not want to pay a lot more than it's worth. So I'm hoping somebody who is an experienced PS1 collector, or has had experience buying this game can point me in the right direction.

Thanks for you time :)

I'm sorry for not replying before the auction has ended.. Allthough I did hear of this game I never knew it was so rare/expensive(/sought after?). By coincidence somebody mentioned it recently in the PS1 Collector's Unite-thread ( http://www.retrocollect.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1867&start=140#p140578 ).

I wouldn't pay this amount of money personally. While becoming more and more uncommon it's in my opinion still possible to find games ''in the wild''. Of course, I am not aware of your finances and time, so I can't take those into account with my decision.

Did you buy it, by the way? And what makes this game so sought after?

There's no sales data on ebay for the English language PAL version. No way I'd spend that much on it. I'd keep waiting.

The French version is a lot more common and cheaper.
