    What is the most expensive game or accessory ever made at all? Just curious of what it might be.
    Thanks!

    That would depend on if you're asking for retail price or auction price. Either way, iuno, you can probably google it though.

    I mean, $300-350 for a controller? Who in their right mind would buy that?

    Probably one of those big chairs for racing games.

    Yeah but don't you have to have that for the console it self to work thus making it part of the console it self?

    The most expensive accessory for a game console is clearly the TV :P

    I'm sure its some odd nes title.

    edit: A quick google search shows nes: Stadium Events which sold for 43,000, if there is a more expensive game than I don't know.

    Surely that old Xbox mech game with the absurdly over-complicated controller that comes in a shipping container must be pretty high on the list. What was it called, Steel Battalion or something?

    As for accessories, if nothing's going to change anytime soon, the PSVita will be a pretty posh controller for the PS4. ;O;

    No. No it will not. Even if it does, they won't require an 84" TV, nor will they cost $25,000.

    Well of course the price will drop down and the size will most likely decrease.

    I can't think of anything that tops Nintendo World Championships 1990 Gold Cart for NES. Around $15,000+ (Sky is the limit really).


    If anybody hasn't seen the documentary "Ecstasy of Order", the winner from that 1990 Nintendo competition for 12-17 year olds Thor Aackerlund is in it. It's all about Tetris and the top players competing against each other. Anyways, they track him down and try to get him to play Tetris again. A tournament ensues, and well, you need to watch it!
