rare xbox 360 games

Post by Doddsy » Mon Aug 19, 2013 1:42 pm

As the Xbox 360 slowly becomes less popular due to a new generation of console. Do any of you guys have any ideas or suggestions on any rare xbox 360 games to look out for. From my experience this is probably the time they will
surface.

These 2d shooters are a good place to start.

Death Smiles, Cave 2009
Death Smiles II, Cave 2010
Dodonpachi Daioujou Black Label X, Cave 2008
Espgaluda II Black Label, Cave 2010
Espgaluda II Black Label (Limited Edition), Cave 2010
Ketsui - Kizuna Jigoku Tachi X, Cave 2010
Mamoru-kun wa Norowarete Shimatta, G-Rev 2009
Mushihimesama Futari Ver. 1.5, Cave 2009
Otomedius Gorgeous, Konami 2008
Raiden Fighters Aces, Seibu Kaihatsu 2008
Raiden IV, Success 2008
Senko No Ronde, G-Rev 2006
Shikigami No Shiro III, Alfa System 2007
Shooting Love 200X, Triangle Service 2009

You can import most of these from playasia for reasonable prices and Deathsmiles has a lovely PAL release.
These shooters are XBLA so will only be available for X amount of time.

1942 Joint Strike, Capcom 2008
Assault Heroes, Wanako Studios 2006
Assault Heroes 2, Wanako Studios 2008
Galaga, Namco 2006
Galaga Legions, Namco 2008
Geometry Wars Retro Evolved 2 2008
Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved, Bizarre Creations 2005
Guwange, Cave 2010
Ikaruga, Treasure 2008
Jetpac Refuelled, Rare 2007
Mutant Storm Empire, PomPom 2007
Mutant Storm Reloaded, PomPom 2005
Omega Five, Natsume 2008
PowerUp Forever, Blitz Arcade 2008
R-Type Dimensions, Tozai Games 2009
Time Pilot, Konami 2006
Trigger Heart Exelica, Warashi 2008
Wolf Of The Battlefield: Commando 3, Capcom 2008

Get them while they're hot.

Other rarities may include complete collectors editions of common games such as Assasins Creed, Mass Effect, COD and Halo. Any Bethesda release collectors edition is also worth tracking down. The Square/Enix online Final Fantasy is rare as hens teeth on 360 these days, if you see it in a shop just buy it. Bully Schollership Edition still commands a high price. There are quite a few other titles that I get a feeling of future rareness possibilities... Too Human, Painkiller, EDF and possibly some of the HD collections and retro collections.
I hope this helps. :D

Tales of vesperia is one I would consider rare in the future. It was pretty sought after and has since kept most of its value. There are also some I would consider "future rarities" ie games which you could probably find today but will be harder to source later on like.

Baring in mind this isn't a definitive list, this is just hat I would consider possible rares. Some of these are quite cheap to pickup.

Deathsmiles
Dodonpachi ressurection
Arcana heart 3
Ultimate marvel vs capcom (rerelease version)
El shaddai: ascension of the metatron
Battle fantasia
Alice madness returns (my not seem it but seems really hard to get ATM.)
Star ocean (could be...)
Catherine
Apache air assault


Limited editions
Bioshock infinite songbird edition (sold out day 1)
Gta IV (with the lock box and duffel bag)
Bioshock big daddy edition
Sonic Generations collectors edition (with statue/soundtrack/numbered edition)
Skyrim collectors edition with dragon statue
Resident evil 6 with steelbook and hoodie (unworn)
Tekken 6 with arcade stick
Assassins creed with statue (same goes or 2,3 and brotherhood, first being the most valuable)
Catherine love is dead edition.
Bayonetta with the gun replica.
Farcry 2 with wooden box and tee shirt


That's what I can think of for now. IMO there are more potential rarities on the PS3. And a I say, I could well be wrong but as a GAME employee these are often a rare sight when traded in, if they are ever seen again that is.

Yeah, i'd agree with that. Some of those JRPG games and things like 3D Dot Game Heroes have got future rares written all over them.

There really are loads of rare xbox 360 games already, but amazon does fill the holes where needed.

I agree there are more rarer PS3 games than xbox 360 though. I posted a big list of rare current get games not so long back, so really don't wana double post my opinion. Anyway.

I truly believe the shooters wont become rare. Much like the PS2 STGs, there isn't any drop in price, and not much increase. They're all still readily available. One thing I haven't had to do whilst building my PS2 STG 'collection' is search hard.

The following games are rare, as in rare. Not rare as in $$$$.

Xbox 360 rare games: // scans shelves.

Dark
Namco Museum
Rayman Origins Collectors edition.
Fallout 3 GOTY
Singularity
My Horse and Me 2
Rapala Fishing games.
Magna Carta 2

Game exclusive Fallout 3 sets. (I have these somewhere, I think...)

Lego box sets, with figures I believe have some future vale. However, they're mass produced, so maybe only sealed. (I got these for PS3, albeit played)

As I keep saying, if you google 'future rare games' you'll see there are hundreds if not thousands thinking the same thing.

Anyway this thread says it all:

You can see it already. along with the Jap shooters there are certain games raising in price.

mostold Xbox 360 games go for a pittance but certain games seem to be on the rise

The incredible hulk and Hotwheels for example are back up to £20+ on a regular basis.

It sounds silly but the kids games hold price, especially Cars. Toystory 3 etc.

Yeah silly but true, mate. Me and My Horse, Hotwheels etc. Mostly tripe to actually play of course, although wasn't that Toy Story 3 game meant to be actually half decent?

A-Train HX

Not too hard to get hold of online at the minute but it had a small print run and your very rarely see it on the high street.

Also a lot of the cross gen early 360 games had small print runs and still hold their value like Marvel Ultimate Alliance and NFS: Most Wanted.

The Lego games as well. I like them, and I'd play more of them if they were a bit cheaper.
