Remember that news story from a few weeks ago about a guy who discovered the incredibly rare Air Raid for Atari in a storage unit and went on to sell the game for over $30,000? (Shit like that just depresses the hell out of me.) Yeah, well you’ll probably never be that lucky–but!– there was an article on Yahoo this week, Eight Video Game Treasures You Might Actually Own, which lists some relatively common games you could very well have laying around your house.
Here’s what’s on the list:
- Halo Triple Pack (Xbox) $80 – $150
- Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance II (PS2/Xbox) $25 – $100
- Metal Gear Solid 3 Subsistence: Limited Edition (PS2) $100 – $500
- Final Fantasy VII – Original Black Label (Playstation) $50 – $500
- Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together (Playstation) $50 – $300
- Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning – Collector’s Edition (Xbox 360) $500 – $1,000
- Steel Battalion (Xbox) $100 – $700
- Gamecube component cables $100 – $150
Hey, I’ve got two!
That’s like…um… *does math* $75 – $600 in my pocket, if these drastically different price ranges are to be believed. Of course, mileage will vary depending upon your game’s condition and finding a willing buyer. I guess you also have to be willing to, you know, like actually let go of stuff, which I never do. My games are like my babies.
What video game treasures do you have hiding in your house?
