    NGPC Prices on the rise and rare games thin on the ground!

    Some big prices being paid for the more desirable UK releases!
    Several have been making over £200 GBP complete on fleabay.

    Interesting to see. Is the NGPC having a revival?

    No it's collectors. They won't play the game and let them sit on a shelf and pound their chest about how much they spent. Period.

    I'm lucky, the NGPC was my obsession at the time, so I bought all the UK39 and many others for cover price or less.
    I shudder to think what a mint complete UK reversi would fetch on fleabay now!

    Most of the games going for silly money aren't usually that good. Which saves the rest of us. Look at Legend of Success Joe on MVS, game is ass but fetches a pretty penny still.

    That would be sweet. I have the Flash Masta:

    http://www.flashmasta.com

    It's a great product but is limited to two games at a time. I'd love a SD solution to the Everdrive to have it all buffet style.

    Wish I had picked up a Gal Fighters when I had the chance. A lot of games are expensive now UK or USA. Spent a lot of time trading my USA versions for UK/JP clasp version (they look cooler to me). I can see why some people would pay more.

    I was seriously considering getting into the NGPC not too long ago but to only collect loose carts. Are they still rising prices for loose as well or is it just clam shell cases?

    Looseys aren't so bad, it's the cib ones that get out of control.

    It's a shame that affordable games have become expensive due to collectors. It only takes one game to really screw it up for everyone else, and then other collectors think that shittier games should be expensive. So sickening already.
    Looking for: Samurai Shodown Zero Special Kit ($650) OR
    Ganryu Kit ($375)
    Windjammers Kit ($200)
    Ragnagard Kit ($????)
    The Last Blade ($300) and LB2 kit ($1200)
    Viewpoint (English AES $350)
    Last Resort (English AES $350)
    Trust me, the games will go to a great home!

    Reminds me a ton of the NES. Besides Little Samson, every triple digit game is absolute garbage to play. I just cant bring myself to drop $500 on a game I know will play like shit regardless of rarity.

    Action 52 for that matter. The Angry Video Game Nerd claimed that the game was about $300 retail when it first came out.

    I'm basically slowing down with older games, and getting games that I really want to get when they first launch.

    Came over here because I was thinking of getting back into the NGPC, I had a pretty solid collection years ago that was mostly in the nice snap cases that I sold on here because I wasn't playing it much. It seems like all older systems are going up in prices lately, NES is out of control and even in the last 2-3 years Jaguar prices have gone crazy. Hopefully there are still some deals to be had so I can get back all the games I liked. I've no interest in a complete collection, so hopefully it wouldn't be too crazy to get what I want.

    Check out ckchan's store. He still got some copies of Rockman Battle & Fighters at a reasonable price ($68 for an excellent and $88 for a near mint copy). Nice guy with top notch service.

    It's the same with the US releases too. I need 3 more carts for my set and two of em are stupidly priced. Gals Fighter loose is over $50 these days which is absurd IMO.

    ngpc stuff is a bit overpriced a local ebay clones too. As long as the loose games are affordable I don't care too much - then again I've not found a loose big tournament golf yet
