So when you get done watching this video, be sure to head over to their channel and watch the 15 Most Expensive Games Ever Developed. If you’re coming here from there, welcome! We’re glad to have you around! Alright Geeks, let’s go.
15 – Karate Ultravision Release on Atari 2600
Kicking off our list is an Atari 2600 Karate game that can cost you as much as $4,000. There is another release of the game by Froggo for the Atari 2600 that isn’t rare. If you want to play it without spending the amount of a dependable, 20-year-old, used car.
14 – Gauntlet for Atari 2600
If you have an extra $3-5,000 to spare, you can spend some time with Sir Robert Whittenbottom and run the gauntlet of an ancient tribe. It may be a little hard to find, though. No one has openly sold Gauntlet in over 10 years.
13 – The Music Machine for Atari 2600
Continuing on our journey of what seems to be mostly Atari games. The Music Machine by Sparrow was only available through religious bookstores. Making this a very hard game to find. You play as 2 children who collect Fruits of the Spirit into a basket and listen to inspirational music while making your way through the game. If this sounds fun to you, you might be able to get the cartridge itself for $500. But if you’re looking for that unopened box, in 2009 a copy sold for a high price of $5,250.
12 – English Edition of King of Fighters 2000 for Neo-Geo
If you want to play this Neo-Geo fighting game, you could be forking out as much as $6,000. Only about 100 copies of this game are confirmed to be in existence, making this a prized possession to any collector.
11 – 1990 Nintendo World Championships: Grey Cartridge for NES.
In 1990, Nintendo hosted a tournament, hence the name. These grey cartridges were used in the tournament and later given to the competitors. To most who own them, they are definitely a cherished addition to their collection. If you get you are lucky enough to get your hands on one of these cartridges, you should be ready to spend big bucks. In December of 2012, a grey cartridge sold on eBay for $8,300.
10 – Ultimate 11 Super Sidekicks 4 European Release for Neo-Geo
If you are looking for a really expensive football game, we’ve got one just for you. Or soccer if you’re American like me. Due to being so hard to find, the European release of Super Sidekicks is rumored to have sold for as much as $10,000.
9 – Kizuna Encounter European Release for Neo-Geo
It has been stated multiple times that the European release of Kizuna is one of the most difficult games to find. Only 5 or so sales have supposedly been witnessed. So if you somehow find one of those 5 people and convince them to let you purchase their copy, be prepared to offer a steep $13,500.
8 – Red Sea Crossing for Atari 2600
Another game where only 100 copies are known to have been produced. Even more rare than Kizuna, only 2 copies have been seen since release. The first appeared in a Garage sale in 2007 and the second was purchased on eBay in September of 2012 for $14,000.
7 – Tetris for Megadrive
This version of Tetris was actually never sold in stores. Nintendo owns the exclusive console rights to Tetris, meaning that the Megadrive version was never actually released. With a story like that, how could a collector not want this game? If you are one of those people, you can find it. There are around 10 known copies out there. You might just have to drop $16,000 to get it.
6 – Atlantis II for Atari 2600
This copy of Atlantis is actually not the original version, but rather a tournament version with some slight gameplay changes. This cartridge was only given to the top players in the Defend Atlantis Competition. Only 4 people won copies and the identities were never released. Making this a very hard find. Although the cartridge itself looks nearly identical to the original, this version will cost you $18,000.
5 – 1991 Nintendo Campus Challenge for NES
Like the 1990 Nintendo World Championships, the 1991 Nintendo Campus Challenge was made solely for a tournament. These cartridges had the games Super Mario 3, Pinbot, and Dr. Mario on them. The plan was for all of the cartridges to be destroyed after the events, but things don’t always go as planned. In 2006 a cartridge was found at an ex-employee’s garage sale. It has since then been sold twice. The first time for $14,000 and then resold for $20,100.
4 – 1990 Nintendo World Championships: Gold Edition for NES
We already spoke of a grey cartridge of the 1990 Nintendo World Championships, but there is an even more rare one out there. The gold edition was only given to 26 people. 1 winner and 25 runner ups. If you were one of those lucky few, you can make an easy $21,000 by selling your copy today.
3 – Air Raid for Atari 2600
It is not every day that you get your hands on a game with only 12 copies ever made, but if you are lucky enough to find yourself in possession of this unique blue cartridge, you can make some serious bank. Because of the rarity of it, the cost has gone up over the last 12 years of sales. Although it used to sell for as little as $3,400, the latest copy to have been sold was a whopping $34,000.
2 – Birthday Mania for Atari 2600
If you want to spend an absurd amount of money on a game where you can blow out pixelated candles, boy do we have a game for you. It could potentially cost you as much as $35,000, but hey… It’s your birthday!
1 – Gamma Attack for Atari 2600
If you thought having only 12 copies of a game was rare, how about only 1? Yes, you heard it right, there is only 1 copy of Gamma Attack known to exist. Currently it is in the hands of one collector after purchasing it on eBay. With the changes in the market since the game was purchased, it is easy to estimate the value of Gamma Attack to be between $20,000 and $50,000. That doesn’t mean that you can offer him a briefcase filled with $50,000 cash and he will accept it, but hey. You can certainly try.
