The Rarest & Most Valuable Nintendo Wii U Games

Even though many gems of the short-lived Wii U have been migrated over to the Nintendo Switch, many retro-minded collectors are starting to accumulate quality Wii U games when they can find them.  Not that long ago, we covered some of the very affordable games that are on the Wii U, but here we will […]

The Rarest and Most Valuable Sega CD Games

Presented by Racketboy and G to the Next Level The Sega CD was ahead of its time and didn’t quite get the support it deserved (although better than its sibling in the 32X). However, despite its reputation for Full-Motion-Video games and ports of Genesis/Megadrive games with CD audio tacked on, there are actually a handful […]

The Rarest and Most Valuable Atari 2600 Games

Presented by Ack & Racketboy Due to its vintage and the bizarre state of the video game industry in the late 1970s and early 1980s, the Atari 2600 library boasts some of the most common and affordable cartridges, as well as some of the rarest and most valuable games ever released. Because of the rarity […]

The Rarest & Most Valuable Sony PSP (Playstation Portable) Games

The Sony Playstation Portable was the first big contender to break up Nintendo’s stranglehold on the portable console market in a while.  And while the PSP didn’t quite reach its full potential or wide, mainstream adoption, it had quite a few fans and catered well to a certain gaming demographic (see more in our Best […]

The Rarest and Most Valuable Super Nintendo (SNES) Games

The 8-bit and 16-bit Nintendo markets have really taken off in the last five years even in comparison to the growing retro gaming landscape as a whole. At the same time, we are starting to see some of the true rarities and gems surface into collectibles and some less rare classics hold steady instead of […]

The Rarest & Most Valuable Bandai Wonderswan Games

The Bandai Wonderswan (read our Beginner’s Guide) is a handheld system that was designed by long-time Nintendo employee and father of the Nintendo Game & Watch and Game Boy systems, Gunpei Yokoi. It had a lot of cool design choices, but remained a Japanese exclusive over its relatively short lifespan. However, the handheld has increasingly […]

The Rarest & Most Valuable Playstation 3 (PS3) Games

It may be hard to believe for some of us that grew up in the Atari and NES era, but there’s also an adult generation that “grew up” on Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 generation.  (And it doesn’t seem that long ago that I put together the Rare & Valuable guide for Playstation 2).  While […]

The Rarest & Most Valuable Vectrex Games

The Vectrex home game system (read up in our Beginner’s Guide) is one of the coolest little consoles from the early 80s.  It’s upright all-in-one design, its vector-based graphics and colorful screen overlays are meant to replicate an arcade experience in ways that systems like the Atari 2600 could not.  It was only on the […]

The Rarest & Most Valuable Xbox 360 Games

It may make a lot of us feel really old, but there’s an adult generation that “grew up” on the Xbox 360 and the collecting season for it is just beginning. (And it wasn’t that long ago that I dug into the R&V guide for the original Xbox)  While this generation has a lot of […]

The Rarest and Most Valuable NES Games

Considering how much of a nostalgic powerhouse the NES is, there should be little surprise that Nintendo’s 8-bit library is filled with many collectible pieces. In contrast with the Super Nintendo’s rare and valuable list, the most desirable NES games are not necessarily populated with the most popular games. Because of the unassuming nature of these […]

The Rarest & Most Valuable Sega Game Gear Games

Even in its glory days, the Sega Game Gear (see our Beginner’s Guide) was always in the shadow of both its Game Boy competition and it’s Sega Genesis/Megadrive sibling. Sega’s handheld has its share of devotees, but it didn’t quite find mass appeal. Decades later, there has been a bit of reassurance of Game Gear […]

Presented by Racketboy and G to the Next Level Are you wondering if your Sega Genesis collection has any valuable treasures in it?

The Rarest and Most Valuable Virtual Boy Games

The Nintendo Virtual Boy  (check out our Beginner’s Guide) had one of the shortest retail lifespan in console history.  In Japan it was released in July 1995 and discontinued before the end of the year.  North America wasn’t much of a different story.  Ramping up in August of 1995 and wrapping up by March of […]
