They are not necessarily the best games of all time, probably even though most of you have not heard, but if you have one of them at home - you sit in a coffin of flowers. This time we are going to talk about the most expensive and rare games of most popular consoles that only lucky or particularly crazy collectors get to hold.

PlayStation 3

For the PlayStation 3 we have Uncharted 2: Fortune Hunter Edition, the collectors version of the adventure game starring Nathan Drake is now sold for a price that can reach 11,000 dollars per new box and 9,000 dollars for a used version. In 2009 Corporation Created only two hundred copies of this special edition and divided them into a lottery on their site. The box that was designed as an antique book contains a copy of the game, Soundtrack, an Artbook book, a game guide and a dagger replica of the game.

Xbox 360

The rarest Xbox 360 game is a little cheaper - the Dead Space collector version, a horror shoot game sold for more than a thousand dollars for a brand new version, and a used version of 750. Only a thousand copies are available for this collector's edition, which justifies its name "Ultra Limited Edition" and inside the box you will find besides the game also a 160 pages graphic novel, Art Book and a few other features.

Nintendo Wii

Want to guess what the most expensive Wii game is? Three guesses: Zelda's game? Mario? Maybe Metroid? so no. It's My Horse and Me: Riding for Gold. Yes yes - horse riding simulator. So why is this masterpiece so expensive? It turns out that Atari, the game's distributor has stopped marketing it after its license with the International Riding Federation is over. The truth now it sounds even more amusing. Still, the game is considered rare and therefore priced accordingly, but still not so bad, it can be found at a pretty modest price - just two hundred dollars and you can ride a virtual horse.

PlayStation 2

In 2006, a survival horror game called Rule Of Rose was released on PlayStation 2 and marketed in Japan. At some point the game was brought to the West where he received a translation, but then encountered censorship problems due to inappropriate and controversial content, so that in Europe and the US, Rule Of Rose didn't get much publicity and so of course nobody really heard about it. And if you want to experience it yourself, you'll have to separate at least two hundred dollars, but if you're short on money you can only buy the disc for a century.

Another very rare game is Saint & Sinner, a game that is only available in Italy and if you already have a chance to find a copy, you will probably have to split up less than $ 200 into a used copy.


Until a decade ago, building and management games were a fairly popular genre, so it's not really surprising that Jurassic Park also took a ride on it. In 2003, the original Xbox came out with a game called Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis, where you could build and manage Jurassic Park. Now you can find the $ 300 game for a new copy. This is not really an exciting story that explains the expensive price, it is simply a game that was originally created in a limited number of copies, which leads to an increase in the prices of the existing copies.


In the two-game single-game deal that Nintendo released on a one-off market during the holiday season, 2005 is the most expensive game for gaming - Metroid Prime & Zelda Wind Waker Combo. Those kids who got a copy of it for Christmas don't know how lucky they are. This is a limited edition that can now be used for a used copy worth $ 300, and new above $ 1800.

In the suitcase you can find, except for the game itself, of course, a light gun and a card In gold color.

Another game for PlayStation, the value of a new copy is unknown LSD Dream Emulator, a fantasy game without purpose, whose developers probably created it after they drank a broken shake.

Although it can be purchased secondhand at 400 dollars only, but no one has ever seen a new copy of it.

Nintendo Entertainment System

In 1990, Nintendo was the undisputed queen of The games and dominated the industry by hand with the NES console.

Atari 2600

In 1982, an anonymous company called Men-A-Vision, created an arcade game where you had to protect the city from enemies who invade Alia from the air. For an unknown reason there are only twelve official copies of the game, and this company also never developed additional games. But a few years ago, several copies of it appeared on eBay, with one selling over $ 1,000 in 30. Perhaps the reason is the unusual shape of the game stack, or the mystery behind the company, but someone has made a great money here from an anonymous game that no one has ever heard of.
