    $480 LoL for what is likely a shitty game.

    All of these prices are insane because less than a year ago i picked up a ton of titles for next to nothing.

    edit: picked up UK Clamshell's for clarity.

    I'm confused. How is it this copy sold for $480, but I've seen them on the UK ebay selling around $12 dollars loose. Is the box really worth $468, or is this version special? I'm new to Neo Geo Pocket collecting.

    Hi A.D,

    Essentially 'yes'.
    This game was recalled prior to general release (along with all NGPC games outside of Japan). A few slipped through but those that were returned were removed from their packaging and the packaging was destroyed.
    So complete versions are highly prized by collectors.

    Jeez. People ARE aware that you cant play the box, right? So did some of those recalled, boxless reversi find their way back on the market in those blister packs? I know that happened for some games, like there's no boxed copies of Last Blade.

    Exactly. Aruze seemed to have acted in haste and repented at leisure.

    So what. If collectors can afford it, then what's the problem? People collect all types of things and some of those things serve no purpose at all except for something to look at.

    More often than not, it seems the people who really have issues with these prices are those that are realising that the chance of ever owning said title, is gradually slipping out of their affordable grasp.

    Next thing you know, you'll need an expert to "authenticate" those cardboard boxes, too.

    Troll elsewhere, your attempts at bringing anything even remotely inspiring or interesting here has failed.

    Nice plastic boxes in this case, but yes absolutely.
    The 'complete' UK collection is only 39 titles, many of which are relatively cheap and plentiful, along with the consoles.
    So it's easy for collectors to start thinking about having that 'complete collection'.

    The snag is of course that Aruze fecked us all up with the fubar recall.

    I agree.
    Collecting is a funny thing.
    I'm a bit of a collector
    Really the only concern for me when buying something for one of my collections is: am I likely to be able to recoup my investment if I decide to sell it again and if not then is the loss mitigated by my enjoyment of the item?

    So, at the moment, we are seeing a bit of a resurgence of interest in retro handhelds via the advancing technology of the modding scene I guess.
    So are people going to fret too much about spending money on games that are genuinely rare?
    I don't think so particularly.

    I wouldn't say it's a full on troll. He does have a point in terms of people trying to bootleg shit of any high $ value.

    I wonder if 8man will start authenticating NGPC cardboard boxes, for a modest fee of course.

    As the paper inserts would be pretty easy to copy, I'd already be suspicious of rare games that have cases but no manuals.

    Yeah, it's not full on, it's weak.

    "cardboard boxes", "DavidG"... who cares. Just trawls every thread and offers an irrelevant one-liner to +1 his account. Guy should be locked in the "WTF Ebay Auction" thread.

    Well my man weak or not it's still a good point. Bootlegging has become an art form to the point that even making perfect copies of pocket games wouldn't be so far fetched. I'm glad I never had too much interest in the pocket because knowing myself I'd spend more money then I should on something that's obviously harder and harder to obtain in terms of a full game library.

    And yeah you do have a point he's a major one-liner but the mods seem to love his posting style or lack thereof with his dial-up connection so I just take him with a grain of salt anyways.

    Also The manuals could be easily faked and those boxes as well. The cardboard ones would be much easier to fake then the snaplock ones since you've obviously have to have a mold made for it.

    I disagree.

    A counterfeiter could simply buy inexpensive snaplock titles and replace the printed portion with their faked wares.

    The following decade-old thread is interesting in relation to this thread...
