            It's both. These were reasonably commanding a couple hundred dollars not too long ago and that was probably a reasonable price for an out of print game in full box with all the doodads included. $5k is just horseshit speculation though.

        The thing that makes it rare and valuable is the box and cart and of course the limited produced Pokéwalker that was discontinued quite fast.

          the thing that makes it valuable is that retard gays such as yourself attribute value to it. It has no inherent value, neither do any of these "graded" collectors items

    Why are pre 3DS era Pokemon games so disproportionately valued?

      It happens in waves. In a few years, the kids who grew up with the 3ds will want the games they had when they were kids.

      Because HGSS are objectively the peak of the Pokémon franchise. And everyone knows that.

    Man you people really aren't going to like the all digital future. In 5 years most games are going to be like this.

      ???
      The reason it costs so much is precisely because it's scarce, because mint condition physical copies of old games become rarer and rarer after they go out of production. Unless NFTfags get their way (and it looks like they won't) digital games are not affected by scarcity, there's no reason why most digital games would ever fall in this situation.

    It costs $0 and like 60 seconds of your time to get a ROM of that game. Only massive tools buy secondhand physical games and they deserve to get taken for all they have.

      I have no emotional connection to any gay gnomish video game company. If I want to replay the psx games from childhood I'll just use an emulator with less load times, higher fps+res and proper z-buffer. Only brand loyalist, braindead fanboys waste money on raspberry pi with a Nintendo sticker slapped on top of it you retarded homosexual.

      in 2020 united states amended the anti money laundering act to force art auctions be more transparent. around the same time this game grading thing started to take off and because games arent art this new regulation doesnt touch them. draw your own conclusions.

    If emulation, piracy and re-releases didn't exist, then it would be a crime. But they do, so who gives a fuck? Whining about things of no practical value to anyone is stupid, and if you just wanna nostalgia then go listen to the music on Youtube or something.

    Real people do that for money laundering. Retards aka latent billionaires do that to unironically earn money.

    Pokemon games and sealed booster boxes are a better hedge against inflation than 401Ks, treasury bonds, IRAs, ETFs, and savings accounts. For whatever reason, out of all the speculative assets that popped during the Covid bubble, pokemon held strong and became basically a legitimate investment.

      Just because its listed doesn't mean it'll be sold. Keep in mind these retards would be holding like a 90%+ loss so they're probably begging some moron comes along so they can break even.

    I can pirate the game and emulate it on my phone for free.
    Why have the box so it can collect dust somewhere?
    Same with books - got an e-reader last year and sold off/threw out all my books and freed up a lot of space.

      I do this and sometimes feel bad about it, especially the book part. I get the urge to start buying them again but then remember I don't even have shelves to put them on.

        I don't feel bad about it anymore after having cleaned out my grandparents' apartment after they died.
        The amount of useless junk was incredible.
        Turns out there is a thing called "Swedish death cleaning" which prevents exactly something like this.

    It's the speculation market. The only people paying that much are the ones who plan to sell it for more later on. It's a game of musical chairs at best. I saw a guy last Comicon trying to sell shitty old comic books for hundreds of eurobucks, as if anyone cares about the first appearance of The Humbug. It'll dry up soon, like comics already have.

    Literally only like a ten year old game. No way is it worth that much (or anything) as a "collectable".
    A mint condition NES game with the original box is one thing, but this is beyond the point of being dumb.
