    Presumably who ever buys it, wont open it up and play it, and thats the whole point of video games, playing them, no?....

    So i dont see the point....

    in my opinion you have to be completely retarded to pay that kind of money for a game. So what if its rare its still a useless old game for a usless old console....

    Easy to say not shelling out several thousand for it, but I'd love to play that copy just to stick it to the world.

    You could say that about anything, including money, which makes it a good buy.

    If you are a collector I do't see any reason not to pay what ever you could afford to get it. There are many collectables and collectors will pay silly money to get it.

    people pay ridiculous amounts of money for a 0.02g stamp. I don't see what's wrong for a rich (collector) gamer to buy this
