This is a list based upon an earlier post. This list should contain ONLY uncommon/rare current Gen games (PS2, XB, GC, GBA...) and guides for current generation titles. Some CAGs may like this post and some will not, this list should be considered YMMV.

Everybody knows that www.digitpress.com has an on-line rare guide. This is only a rough quick reference and to provide some discussion. Also, this is only for current titles.

Part of this list was originally started by Apossum and his hard work, this is a modification to include only current Gen games, the original had older games as well. Here the the original thread: http://www.cheapassg...ight=rare guide

Disney Sports Basketball never came out for Xbox so that is extremely rare. F1 2001 should definitely be on the Xbox list though.

WOW..... how many of these threads are going to be started???

Just go to digitpress.com, and check it out.

As it used to be free,... now you have to buy their book.
It's definitely worth it, and it supports their site.
I've been a member there for many years, and everyone there is awesome.

Enough already with these lame threads.

Not too mention your horrible pricing.

I think threads like this are a good idea, though maybe we should just have one and sticky it. Digitalpress is good, but they don't really have good data on this generation, yet. This is a good list of the harder to find stuff on this gen. It's also nice that the OP is including hard to find guides in the list.

Is the Panzer Dragoon Orta guide hard to find?

Does digitpress have prices for ANY current generation games? Last time I checked they didn't.

Yeah,... but in the last month, I've seen 3 of these already.

The prices are not accurate, and it seems as though you are taking the average sold price from eBay to calculate.
eBay averages in all sales, new and used, and even unrelated items. It is not accurate.
A lot of the games above go for much more than your quote.
Not to mention that these games are the same ones from another thread.

If you buy the book from digitpress.com, you get current info.

If this is going to remain the current rare/low production thread,... then fine. I'm beotchy because I've seen a bunch of them, and they are far from accurate. As if the games OP owns are worth more,... and the ones he wants aren't worth as much.
Setting up a potential n00b for a loss.

Please make this a sticky, so that others don't make more threads.
That's all I'm saying.
:)

Way of the Samurai 2 -- Capcom shipped low numbers, and most sold went to hard-core fanes -- it pops up used, but rarely.

Seriously?

There's 3 or 4 vendors at the flea market selling this for around $15, not to mention that all 7 or 8 stores in driving distance on Gamestop's store locator has it used for $30, and I've seen it a ton of EB's as well.

Used $30 is a lot for this game that came out almost a year ago.

Often shortages can be regional, YMMV. Rez was one such game that had major diffs in its regional dist -- when CC did its orig clearance sales, there were several stores around the country that had many copies of Rez long after the Central VA stores were cleared out.

Trust me when I say this game is HTF -- for most everyone it is, that is why it is still demanding strong prices on ebay -- it ain't because the game is good, because it is quite average to almost bad.

It was definitely short shipped in Central VA -- between 2 Best Buys, 3 Circuit Citys, more EBs and Gamestops than I can count -- there are only 3 used copies in my region right now, and it is selling used for $36 used in my region.

I've never even seen a copy of Rez, DDR Disney or Ninja Five-0 here on Long Island. I still remember when Firefighter FD 18 came out...it was hard to get even when Gamestop still carried it brand new.

Umm, the digitpress list is free as well. Just use the online rarity guide. Sure it doesn't have rarity rankings for current gen stuff, but you can't beat it for the classics.

How exactly is Castle Shikigami 2 rare?

EB has over 100 copies of it available online, not to mention walmart and whoever else you feel like ordering it from. It is quite common.

Wow! I was considering Puyo Pop Fever for the GC, too! It's only $14.99 at Wal-Mart, and some other locations. The Reviews gave it good ratings.

Man....when the word 'rare' pops up, I gotta start making trips to stores...again.

don't flame..

i love these kinds of threads.. i think one should get stickified.. that way some of us who aren't all knowing gaming gods can look at a list and see if we have some rare game by accident or somethign.. i like this idea. the prices are always fluctuating and will never reflect anything.. i'd just base a 20 dollar rule.. if it is generally above or below that price so we can get a ball park range. (or use 30 or 40)..
