The most money you've ever paid for a video game?

Recommended Posts

t3h PeNgU1N oF d00m

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.

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

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.
