Too good to be true

Rate this Entry
I just found FF7 at a second hand store, regular nonplatinum pal edition for $5. I keep expecting to find something wrong with it but it seems legit, though the case has a few cracks.

Did the price of physical FF games fall since their release on psn or am I just extremely lucky?

    You're freaking lucky. I saw a platinum edition of VIII for 25. VII I would expect to be much more expensive..

    When all else fails, compare the price on eBay to find out whether it's good value or not. But $5 sound extremely cheap and I'd say you just got yourself a very, very good deal. I think 10 is more realistic value given how many copies were made.

    Not if you live here. The price is $120

    Mental note: Before going back to NZ, buy many copies of FFVII on eBay and resell to Australians.

    It wasnt a game shop or anything, just a second hand store like cash convertors, I dont think they knew the value of what they were selling.

    10 would've been reasonable back before Advent Children came out.

    Checked now that I'm at home. Cheapest sale on eBay going by the completed listings is 2.99, most expensive 27.49 (opened game) / 30.55 (new). Averages around 15 or so. $5 being around 3, you got a great deal.

    I was after FFVI for PS, so I asked the staff at Gamestation if they had any Final Fantasy games that were pre-ps2, and she said when they do get pre-ps2 ones in, they sell them for 5, which surprised me.
    Still I got my FFVII from infamous Ebay for 18 quid, original, works 100% ^.^

    That whole price thing is why I don't sell my old games, and why some of them I have to play on a modded Xbox. There's no smurfing way I'm going to pay $80 for a used copy of Super Mario RPG. Don't even ask how much a new in the box copy can run you.
