From my experience, the price of sealed games tend to change very quickly. When I got my sealed copy of Shenmue 2 PAL, it was selling (and completing) for around $300. Sin...

Re: Do you collect anything?

I picked this up at the flea market today for just 3 dollars. It is new and unopened with the shrink-wrap fully intact. Apparently new copies are going from 200 to 300 dollars on Amazon and Ebay . Used copies without the box are 40 dollars and up. http://img818.imageshack.us/img818/6343/systemshock2...
