Over the last few months some strangely high prices have been paid for retro games that are graded and sealed. Now it looks like there is a competition going on for who can sell the most valuable game even to the point where shareholders are involved.

Rich people laundering their money through games.

I have been people grading Switch games… Last month saw someone selling animal crossing for switch 9.5 vga graded for 150 or so dollars like WHY. Even i could go to my local gaming store and buy one and then grade. I understand grading something that isn't in plastic cover like n64, nes, snes etc.

RetroGrade 08/08/2021 - 12:13

I don’t think that because people buy factory sealed games means that the market is getting worse

TheShanePlays 08/08/2021 - 12:13

About 2 years ago I got Mario 64, Mario Kart 64, and Yoshis Story for 60 bucks. Glad I got them because these games are getting ridiculous in price. Who cares about a sealed copy other than bragging rights? I can get custom cases for 8 bucks and they look just as good and be able to play it.

Paradox CityLife 08/08/2021 - 12:13

hi Spawn, hi everyone, " this kind of makes
me want a few old sealed copies of games", 🙂

if you owns some of these games and need money… you've gotta be pretty happy.

Simon De Gooijer 08/08/2021 - 12:13

Money laundering?

darrentg6 08/08/2021 - 12:13

I own thousands of games, but prices recently just hit the "oh fuck this, I'm gonna move to emulation" point.

Liam Boyle 08/08/2021 - 12:13

It’s called drug kingpins and tax avoiders laundering money

Chaoskae 08/08/2021 - 12:13

People out here getting upset over scalpers when shit like this happens consistently. People are spending money on these games.

Jake VanZandt 08/08/2021 - 12:13

Launder that money. Bit coin also

RAMBO WHA 08/08/2021 - 12:13

The games itself are not worth those prices but the experiences we had with them are way more worth those prices.

1MikeTakesAHike 08/08/2021 - 12:13

This absolutely terrifies me as a collector because
1. Every guy now thinks he can sell his games (even if they're not cib or in a shitty condition) for high prices.
2. More collectors (and also collectors who only collect for the sake of reselling) enter the scene because of the increasing media coverage.

There's only that much you can spend on games and it feels like a race against time now 😭

you- tube 08/08/2021 - 12:13

it's not fair that people have this much money and other have nothing and are starving.

Siddhant Banerjee 08/08/2021 - 12:13

Drug dealers must be so happy with games being a new money laundering venue

FarisPlayer1 08/08/2021 - 12:13

Ah so we are laundering money using video games now are we?

Benva 83 08/08/2021 - 12:13

I quit collecting retro games a year or two ago.

William Mullen 08/08/2021 - 12:13

The issue with these grading companies to me is that I just don't trust them… They don't publish their grading methods, so how do I know if they're truly grading my game honestly? What if my sealed copy of a game is better, but they grade it one tenth lower because some one on their staff owns another copy that would hurt their value if mine were graded higher? How do I know that they don't have other sealed copies of my game that they may swap out without me knowing, if my game was was of a higher quality? There's just too much money and connected people in this grading world that raise too many red flags.

That Retro Video Gamer 08/08/2021 - 12:13

Sadly, I have to agree.. as a writer, collector, blogger for all things retro gaming I've seen the prices get to the point where even in specialist retro collecting groups, the enthusiasts are now all talking about selling up vs holding onto valuable franchises against the known issues of disc and cartridge rot. Many are turning to everdrives and emulation since collecting games went more mainstream with the average joe now looking to buy vintage items for financial gain in the long term.

I think what you'll see over the next few generations is a move to bring all software over to steam and gamepass like services, with indies such as antstream rising up to give access to vintage systems and exclusive titles.Much like the same way napster, apple music and spotify re-invented listening to music as a collectable past time to a binge fest where most people have an obscene amount of music of which most will never make a playlist, gaming will sadly move to the point where only the current and most popular franchises will be visible to the majority of consumers.

Jake Riffle 08/08/2021 - 12:13

Let's be real, anyone buying a sealed retro game isn't buying to play it. They would pay normal price for a used copy

Ivegotabfmv 08/08/2021 - 12:13

Gonna try sell my copy of FIFA 2006 for a million. Wish me luck guys!

Smash Verse 08/08/2021 - 12:13

And people complain when Skyward Sword HD is 60 bucks…….

Tofuhazard 08/08/2021 - 12:13

Is it though? Collectible elements are getting are getting stupid expensive, but actually playing the games has never been cheaper with emulation and ports. People are buying these to put them on their shelves. Who cares

Brandon Meadows 08/08/2021 - 12:13

Im hoping we get to a point where this artificial inflation declines. So many PS1 JRPG games id like to own physically and play but can't cause they cost as much as a PS4…

patrickj 08/08/2021 - 12:13

Well, you just need to take a look at what the Nintendo Playstation prototype sold for, a – as far as we know – one of a kind item with a legendary history, to see that those prices are just hyper-inflated for whatever reason.

joe 08/08/2021 - 12:13

The retro market is now out of reach for normal people. This is why game companies need to rerelease old games and preserve them.

Moggy 08/08/2021 - 12:13

Suddenly I feel like I should have never opened all my video games and enjoyed them when I was a young boy but you know what you only live once and should enjoy the things you have when you are young. The money would be nice and very helpful in life a lot right now though lol. Check out Game eye its a app you can see what your games are worth.

Luke Starkiller 08/08/2021 - 12:13

I really want to keep collecting games that I enjoy, but crazy high prices for retro games is making emulation and reproduction look better and better.

Michael Rivas 08/08/2021 - 12:13

Not sure these people remember Nintendo boxes. The games did not come shrink wrapped aka sealed. They were just boxes. Plastic wrap started more with super nintendo games.

Michael Bobadilla 08/08/2021 - 12:13

How many fool are out there, that's the question.

Allie-RX 08/08/2021 - 12:13

Do these sellers even have a down payment option?
