Yes game, not console.

Managed to find someone who has a copy of NBA Elite 11 which was cancelled. It is regarded as the rarest of all PS3 games, and i am hoping it is an astute investment.

If not i just paid a shit load of money for a poor game lolz

UPDATE 28/4/11

Ok guys the game arrived today at my wife's work.

When i get home tonight i will post pics of the disc and the game on my tv.

Following this i am going to write a review of the game for MMGN - how is that for a scoop - to be the only website with a review of the game. Actually, am i breaking any laws by writing a review of a game that was never released?

If admin could advise that would be great.

UPDATE 23 May 2011!

Having received my sealed copy i have now posted my unsealed copy for auction on ebay. Anyone interested can take a look at:

cgi.ebay.com.au/...

UPDATE 11/11/11

Got my sealed copy back from VGA today. Graded and sealed here she is:

lolz
Cool find though, it is very rare.
EA had actually completely finished the game and pressed the disks before they cancelled it. Crazy.

it is a risk, but a calculated one.

Rare video games can be worth a fortune, with some Atari 2600 and NES games now valued in tens of thousands of dollars. To the true collector who wants to own EVERY game for a console they are sometimes willing to pay crazy money.

I am holding on to it for at least 10 years, probably 20.
Sounds rare..
Wow had no idea you could actually buy this game. Not that anyone would want to. Let alone for $500!!

Are you insane!!?!?!
Sealed would go for AU$40,000 in 30 years time.
keep it don't play it then wait +20years then it could worth more. If u can let a famous NBA player sign it then it could worth even more.
Wow man, $500 is a lot of coin to put up but as you said this is an extremely rare find.

The question is are you going to play it, or keep it in the shrink wrap?

So u paid $500 for one game?.
I think the bloke who sold it is laughing right now.
Good Investment! Saw some going on ebay for like $1000

Is this game that rare?.
It's a cancelled game.
I wonder how much Cheetahmen 2 would go for... :P
I'll buy it off you and then make a thread about it :P

On the contrary, it took me 2 weeks to talk him into selling. He is aware it is likely to increase in value, but he also desperately needs money as he is moving.

Finally buckled and gave in.

I am aware it may not be worth much, but i really cannot think of a rarer ps3 game. Collectors pay a lot of money for things like this potentially.
You should make a thread about these kind of things all the time...

Uh huh.
I would so laugh, when you open the game up there is no disk :{
Very good investment. The game wasn't released and will increase in worth dramatically. You've essentially just bought a game that doesn't even exist.

The seller is an idiot. Good buy.
How can they afford to cancel a game that is essentially finished, waiting for release?
Jesus bug.
