many of these won't actually become 'valuable' for years and years and years anyway.

Well, yeah that's true. Although there are some that are expensive already.

Well yeah, but you know how these things go. Values fluctuate a lot, especially with consoles that have yet to be officially discontinued.

Excite Bots will likely gain some value over time for a few reasons.

A) It was only released in North America and Japan.
B) The north American version bombed.
c) The Japanese version is a club nintendo exclusive.

Also, the new Canadian Wii redesign will be quite valuable as a collectors item if it never releases elsewhere.

So i started a "Going up in value" checklist for myself on Wii games so i can get ahead before they go up even more, doing pretty good.

Just picked up this past week:

Arc Rise Fantasia $12
Dokapon Kingdom $30
Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New world $20

think i did pretty good on prices, all were acquired locally. :D

I love reading this thread, but I keep kicking myself because I sold my copy of Tatsunoku vs. Capcom a while ago! At least I still have Prime Trilogy...

I think Fishing Resort. Made by Yuji Naka/Prope and I think a lot of people probably assume it is shovelware.

Yeah Fishing Resort looks mighty unknown and rare, amazon has 1 for $50 and ebay has 1 without a picture for $3k?

Going to lookm further into this, there is a version that comes with a fishing pole attachment.

*edit*

Apparently Gamestop has lots of copies, very weird...

Didn't believe it at first, but then I couldn't believe my eyes when I checked eBay and amazon.com. What's up with this? The PAL version seems to have more sensible prices as well.


another very low print game.

Amazon had them on BF for $15 and $20 for the boxed version with the fishing controller attachment. I doubt they will be getting new stock but we'll see. My GS has a boxed version for $30 but the box has a slice on the back of it along the edge from what looks like a razor knife. I might just grab it anyway. I've never actually played it but I would like to. It looks like a fun game to me.

I was going to grab one BF on Amazon too but I kept thinking it would hit $10. :lol: Should have just grabbed one I guess.
