There's a Nintendo World Championship cart for sale on eBay going for $100k+ US. It made me think - what is the most you have ever spent on a single video game? Also, if you wanted a rare game enough, how much would you spend on it to buy it?

 

For me, the most I've spent was $70 for Texas Chainsaw Massacre(Atari 2600). I know it's not much more than new games today, but most people just see it as a 30 year old hunk of plastic. As for how much I would spend on a game - maybe $150 to $200 if I really wanted it.

150$ for GTA V's collector's edition -__-

 

Game wasn't worth more than the 90$ edition, hell probably the 60$ standard version was a better price point.

 

Before that it was a few other collector editions that weren't that near the price I paid for GTA V, I believe it was 120$ for a few of them

150$ dollars for GTA V's collector's edition. Great game but I feel people who paid 150$ should have gotten some extra missions and exclusive stuff online that's actually good.

$190 AUD for an uncut version of VC. I don't know what I was thinking really. I got it 2 weeks before it released over here, but the differences between it and the censored version weren't that noticeable.

 

The next in line is $150 AUD for the GTA IV special edition.

Me too, only MW2.

 

As for actual most spent, not including special editions, it would have to be £50 for Blast Corps on N64.

 

Never Again.

$90 for the GTA V Special edition, along with a few others in that price point. The collector's edition for V looked like a rip off. Only game I would have spent over a 100 bucks for, would have been Skyrim, I want that Statue.

I've only bought 4 new games the rest are pre-owned, Assassin's Creed 2 was the first and most expensive it cost $105 just for the standard edition, games always cost a lot more in Australia.

I tend to stay away from any collectors or special editions, so I just buy the standard version of games.

$120 for GTAV from EB Games.

A far cry from the £34.99 I used to spend at GAME.

Also World of Warcraft with all expansions (and if you want you can count the subscription).

 

If you count the subscription I'm well over a €1000

This.

 

If we're counting hardware though, I spent $170 to play CTW since I didn't have a PSP.

About $50 for GTA 5 a few days after it came out.

 

You can probably tell I don't go out and buy much.

I rarely ever buy special editions of video games but I decided to for GTA V.

 

I guess that's the most I've ever spent on a video game, $80 + tax for GTA V Special Edition.

 

I'm glad I didn't shell out the $150 for the Collectors like other people did. Most people I know regretted it.
