    That's probably worth at least $1000.

    I had Heart Gold and Soul Silver mint in box, and an original Earthbound cart, but they were both ruined by the flood. Otherwise, I have Fire Emblem Path of Radiance, every suikoden game, Chrono Trigger, Xenogears, Grandia, Secret of Mana, and Valkyrie Profile all with their original boxes and manuals. I have the Sonic Mania, Persona 5, and Fire Emblem Echoes special editions too. My collection spans 20 years, so there's a lot. I'll have to get my stuff out of storage and see what survived and post it all here.

    I checked. You can get a sealed Earthbound SNES cart for $40 USD

    I agree. Anyway, if I had something like that, I'd download the ROM and sell that cart

    I don't really consider myself a collector, but still have a lot of rare leftovers from the 90s such as a complete copy of Earthbound, several other RPGs for SNES, MMX2, MM7, Panzer Dragoon Saga, and most of the big RPGs for PS1 and it ALL stinks like cigarettes!

    Club Nintendo's Game and Watch Collection for the DS. See it going for about £45 unsealed on eBay, which isn't too bad.

    Is a release day FFVII worth anything?

    I forgot
    I'm gonna have to go with "no you can't". A repo cart, maybe, but a legitimate, original SNES copy would likely go for a tooooooon of money. Loose cartridges of the game go for like $100+ on their own, a boxed copy, unopened, is likely worth a ton of money.

    Tom shut up; you are ruining the con. The next step would have been "I would not mind it if you fancy getting rid of it, just as I am nice I will do $50".

    Ehh I have sealed CEs and crap. Bravely Default and Persona 5 being the two bigger ones. I think My SNES copy of Mega Man X3 is worth big bucks though.

    I don't really know about the rarity of my games. My guess is that the rarest game I own is the Japanese PS2 special edition of "Rez" including the trance vibratory peripheral complete in box.

    Got it last week. Pretty funny :)

    It could be interesting to start the same kind of thread but for hardware.
