    Found this old blog and thought it would be interesting as some of you may already have :)
    It is a ps1 (or psx) list of games that cost a lot more now (it is dated from 2008)
    So if anyone got anything from this list, maybe you will buy a new gpu or smth :toast:

    It was a dragon card game and it had 7 rings to complete the game. Been searching really deep the internet cannot even find the name!)

    I had a few of those games as a kid. Unfortunately, they were all pirated copies my dad brought over from Thailand, so they are essentially worthless. My favorite of that list is Einhander. Was an awesome game. PSM named it "one of the best games you've never played."

    you mean PS1.

    PSX was a console Sony released that was basically a PS2 with a DVR.

    no collector calls the PS1 the PSX.

    when you say PSX you're referring to the Playstation 1 Emulator or the Playstation 2 console with DVR.

    I just typed psx because in youtube and in google it showed as a suggestion
    Even the game i was searching was written psx
    Anyway i never heard of that psx and never seen
    My neighbour had a chinese white version of ps1 which was written on the case psx
    but it was slim one
    As far as i remember it was worse than my grey one
    Just for information all rare games 'posted' work on all playstations if the collectors wanna know

    I have/had a number of games on that list, quite a few I've already sold. Though, I am never getting rid of the megaman legends games, or misadventures of tron bonne.

    Meh ps1/psx.

    Im sure that 99% of the time when someone says PSX people would understand that they are referring to the playstation 1.

    I usually type PS1 but I never had a console during the fifth generation, just a computer. Though emulators are nice for it. Can't figure out some hotkeys for save states.
    Makes me wonder if the emulators which are based on optical formats would work in an optical drive and then read through said drive via the emulator. Been wanting to do such a thing for PCSXE2 and Dolphin. DreamCast is rarer I think.

    Panzer Dragoon Saga (Sega Saturn, 1998) is probably one of the most expensive collectable games out. Brand new it goes for more than $1,400. Used, mint condition can get between $200 to $500+

    Wow, I have a fully working mint ps1 with about 100 or so games stored in a draw somewhere with original memory cards, controllers and everything! I'm 15 so the ps1 was something big during my child hood, my first console :D

    Sorry for picture quality, quickly snapped with my ipod.
    Old days when I was around 5-7 years old, I loved DBZ so much I managed to decorate my ps1 with stickers of it :)
    Digging out all the old stuff, seeing if anything worthy appears :D

    it's incorrect. I am a collector :)

    PSX is a codename to a console that never launched. back in the day Sony built Nintendo a prototype console that was basically a Super Nintendo with a CD-ROM called the Playstation Experimental. Nintendo was not happy and both companies went their separate ways.

    People try to distinguish between the old Playstation and mini PSone by calling it PSX but the PSX as Bumblebee says is a Japan only PS2 DVR. Still i would know that by PSX someone was referring to the original Playstation even if i knew that was incorrect.

    The rarest production game is probably Stadium Events for the NES, even more so if it includes the box ect. World championships was never a released production game, it was made in limited quantities for a magazine prize and Nintendo contest, the gold version is extremely rare but also there are a lot of copies of the gold cart.

    EDIT: FF7 is not rare they made a lot of copies. Ive seen people scoop it for a few pounds but ive seen it also be sold for a lot on ebay but i never thought it was amazingly expensive. Maybe the PAL version is just not as expensive.
    lol i didnt know Daytona USA: CCE netlink edition was so rare.
