Disney Sports Basketball

We need to discuss this one. Why the frick is it so laughably overpriced compared to everything else on this console? All the other rare or sought after games go for $100-$500 max, yet this shit goes for $1500 and no one knows why.
>Durr just emulate
I'm not looking to buy or play this absolute horseshit of a game, I want to know why it's so expensive if it doesn't have known rarity or quality gameplay to boost it to 3x where even the other most expensive Gamecube games are

    It's more like $750-$1,000. There's a copy on eBay right now for $800, taking offers.

    I'm pretty sure it just got a very, very short print-run. That's all.

      and being the game that it is, it was 99% owned by young children. how many of those took care of the game? how many ended up in the garbage after mom cleaned billy's room? There's probably very few intact ones out there.

    Gamecube being a Nintendo console has attracted a certain type of collector that gravitates towards odd titles to inflate, quality is entirely removed from the equation as dirt common things like Mario Kart and Smash boys resides at the $100 mark and has done so for years, and the inferior version of multiplats skyrockets well past rarer and better versions on other consoles.

    Basically the market was open to being controlled by insane manipulators and the fans let it happen without a second thought.

    Nintendo has some very dedicated fanboys willing to collect complete sets of games and they end up paying absurd prices just to have it all.
    A fullset collector market doesn't really exist outside of Nintendo due to Sony consoles having enough regional exclusives and weird edge cases to make it practically impossible, literally nobody caring enough about Xbox to even try and Sega having enough actual low print run games making fullset collections basically impossible regardless of price because the games simply don't show up for sale often enough.

    I won't forgive Konami for folding KCE Kobe into KCE Osaka again and quarantining them into Disney Sports games for the GBA.

        Konami set up multiple subdivisions/branches around the mid 90s; KCE Tokyo, KCE Osaka, KCE Kobe, KCE Japan, KCE Nagoya etc etc. Konami Osaka made all the Goemon games for the SNES, N64 (MNSG/GGA) and DS, plus a decent amount of Konami's N64 output. Kobe was offsprung from Osaka's 1st development division and did Animaniacs SNES, Goemon PS2/Dynamites, Rakugakids, the N64 Castlevanias, Circle of the Moon, Konami Krazy Karts, etc. But due to internal politics, Kobe was merged back with Osaka in December 2002 and later on to KCE Studios, leading to Konami as a whole never being quite the same creatively speaking for the most part. A decent amount of devs eventually left Konami and established GoodFeel.

        But hey, at least they went hard with the music for this golf game for the GBA. https://youtu.be/-I9rW32hgZ0

    Wasn't there like three sports games with Mickey Mouse on the GameCube? They came out around the same time as Mario Sports games, so I assume they didn't make that many copies. Bad release window.

    It seems to have had a much smaller print run than the other Disney Sports titles. I remember looking for them all back in the day in GameStop and Basketball was BY FAR harder to find compared to Skateboarding and Football. My guess is Konami looked at the metrics and found GCN owners just weren't buying basketball games.

    didn't even know this game existed. Probably part of the issue since I was active on cube at release and followed releases closely. If I missed it then it's really obscure.

    Anyway, I'd rather see a leak of pennant chase baseball.
