Funny, I was looking around YouTube for this exact topic and saw your video! The most frustrating thing about collectiong and searching local ps2/1 games is when sellers do the ole' eBay price check. "Oh, Castlevania sold for $120? I'll ask $110 firm!"

Anyway, great video, there's a few I hadn't even seen before! If you're an avid PS2 fan, do you have any preferences on the most optimal PS2 setup? I'm currently getting a CRT/component setup, hopefully it's much better than my hdtv

You're right, this has been the bane of collecting since not long after they introduced the BIN; there've always been jokers on ebay even back in the early days, but most people seemed to start with low start prices (some like me still do!).

Hey Playas,

Thanks so much for taking the time to watch my video. It's great to hear from other members here. I'm glad the topic was of interest.

@bammer I use an upscaler and capture the footage to stream on Twitch. My set up isn't top of the line but it's the best I can get at an affordable price. I've been thinking of making a video explaining the set up for others.
Currently I only have a slim model, my fat decide to stop working. So I haven't been able to play blue discs lately. I need to pick up a different model.

I don't know what the print run was, wikipedia might have info on that.
The game is uncommon and like you mention inexpensive.
