Hmm... What about... Ikki, Bird week, Sqoon, Game Party, Cocoron, City Adventure, Spy Vs. Spy and Auto-Upturn?

Most Famicom games were made in large numbers and aren't rare. So all those games mentioned above aren't rare. Some of those, like Sweet Home, are wanted by a lot of gamers, so that makes the price go up, even though it they aren't rare. There are other threads here about rare games, like grails, special releases and gold carts, etc.

I think the gold version of punch out is pretty rare

There is another one on ebay that the seller wants even more money than this one

Yeah, but not hella rare. 10,000 were made and they usually don't sell CIB in Japan for more than $200.

For one on eBay, that's a good price. I sold a shitty one for $300+. That one's been listed for a while. I have an extra one CIB, as well.

Haha. You know, the first time I listed my gold PO, it didn't sell, with a start bid of like $200. I relisted it with a $100 start bid and told FamicomJL that I'd give it to him if it didn't sell. Well, it sold, for $360 shipped, I think. But $20. Can't do that. Tongue I need to make my money back. Need at least $200.

I'm pretty new to this but is a game really worth 200 bucks?  That seems very pricey for such dated technology.  I take it the price is because its a highly sought after collectable

That's what it's all about, whether or not people want it and how many are available to get. So yeah, some games are worth that much and more. Now, if you're talking about it from the other perspective, that it's just a hunk of plastic with old technology and a printed label, the worth these days would be pennies.

But isn't Mike Tyson's Punch Out!! for NES more complete than the Famicom Version? Isn't the last person you face Super Macho Man? I picked up MTPO for $9 and I thought even that was pricy.

Sorry, FamicomFreak, when you said "rare", I thought you meant "strange", not  "scarse".  Cheesy
