Still won’t be as valuable as an actual CE release. This was a barebones set of 3 emulated games on a cartridge. And we all know Nintendo isn’t going to never release these games again. I guarantee they show up on the eShop as separate but possibly pricier individual games down the line. This may rise in value but it will never be a truly rare or valuable title.

Who gives a crap. It's a game... if you are banking on games being rare and worth a lot, you are a moron.


LOL yes!!!! Video game investing is the most neck bearded way to invest your money...if you want a guaranteed ROI buy some stocks or invest in mutual funds.

It's not like they are going to ET the remaining stock to spite anyone late to the party.

I think buying video games or misc collectibles with the INTENT of hoarding/resale is pretty strange.

 

That said, I just unloaded a ton of my collection of comic/video game stuff cause of pandemic times - and got back wayyy more than I ever spent. So it's hard for me to say it's an all around bad idea. Just buy stuff you'll enjoy having and don't be weird about it

If you want to hoard and resell then it is all about Lego and hardwood puzzles.

I think the point is you could have made more money investing. I have no issue with people buying stuff because they’re collectors and enjoy the hobby. Just don’t expect to get rich off of buying games and avoid treating them like investments.

In many cases I resold my stuff 3x or 4x times what I paid, though. Stocks making that kinda return is unlikely. Investing is just gambling for normies. I'd rather be a true degenerate and hit the blackjack table.

In the last 10 years I’ve more than tripled my money...the only trend the market has in the long run is up. Collectables alway peak in value and then fall off. I’ll use this as an example. I bought some rare anime cells from the 1980s for a 100 bucksish each. If I bought those during the early 2000s when demand and popularity is high they prob cost 500-1000 each. Same thing happens with Collectable cars. When I was a kid 50-60s cars were very expense but as that generation aged out the market fell a lot. Now more modern cars from the 80s-2000s are up in demand.
