I was searching on the net to find Valkyrie Profile the game for PS1. When I found it on stores online it was $225. (there was something I wanted to say about that; Are they freakin' high or somethin') Also I have a hard time getting Japanese games. One is the region coding device that prevents me from playing foriegn games. Two I can't read Japanese. Three, you can't really find them in retailers. Most Japanese games never even come out in English. Also I have been trying to find Riviera the GBA game, but it sold out on almost all places when it came out. It's so hard to find these games, and it would take so much money to even buy one. Does any one else have problems finding games that are rare?

Well Valkyrie Profile is a really old game(but its my 2nd faviort RPG game) and i love that game. try going to a local store and see if they have a used one. i dont really have a problem getting old games because i got friends that happen to have it and i know how to get old games.

I've had an experience with a rare game. Took me a while to find a PS2 version of Capcom Vs Marvel. It costed me $85 and they sell really fast once someone has a copy to sell.

I've had nearly all the super rare games from most consoles for awhile, just because I'm a dope and buy any game I think I might want to play as soon as it comes out. But when a game slips through, I do the following. One, search on eBay and get an idea of what people are paying for the game. Two, search the major game retailers sites such as Gamestop or EB. They have a really good feature of finding the game in a local retailer by entering your zip code. If neither of those have the game in the area, you can try the BestBuy/Walmart/whatever sites, and do the search by zip code there too.

If they do have the game for a reasonable price (try to factor in time travelled there, and any discount you may get. I know Gamestop and EB have 10% off used games with their respective cards). Then.. try Yahoo's shopping area. They have some awesome deals and you can get some nice stuff. Amazon and Half.com are also good ways to find something rare.

Games like Valkyrie Profile and Panzer Dragoon Saga will always fetch a high price because of high demand and limited quantities. ;x So beware. Good luck in your future searches! Try to anticipate which games will be underground hits and reserve them when possible, that's probably the best advice I can give. Hope this helped.

Yes, Xenogears was outrageously hard to find. But I somehow found it for $25.99 at EBGames. I was so overjoyed. Xenogears, is a complete classic and always will be.
