I just spent $500 on a game.

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:

that is an amzing buy. i dont know why your getting flamed. and out of all the people that should be flaming you, you shouldnt be it sony. is it double standards week or something. first you accuse a girl of being a hoarder when your just as bad, now your trolling a guy who spent 500 bucks that is eventually gonna be worth more than your whole gamecube collection? i think someones a little jelly. i like you sony, your a great guy but you really need to stop being such a douche.

also: inb4 cool story bro
Wouldn't playing it severely reduce its value?

Also, it's only $500? Not all that much money, even if it is a waste.

People need to understand the difference between collecting and gaming....Im not sure whether people cannot grasp it or whether they are just overlooking a few things.

In Sonys case it is pretty clear that he has a vendetta most probably out of jealousy but i wont do him the favour of explaining those insecurities.

The main point to recognise is that to a game collector (and there are plenty serious ones across the world) having a game that was never released is like the holy grail. The quality of the game is nowhere near as important as having a game which so few people have. It is the ultimate bragging right for the ps3 collector. If you cannot understad this you do not understand collecting. Rarity is hugely important to an items value.
games are worth more BNIB. collectors are not gonna buy a rare game break the seal and play it. there gonna buy it because its rare and they will be one of the only people in the world to have one

i did not buy the game in the box.

It came as disc only.

Dont make assumptions.

And when there are 10 in the world that are known of they will buy it. Do you know HOW rare this is?
woops i got confused between yours and dickies. sorry.
keep it mint and should be worth something in the future ..how much though is anyones guess.
Big question?
Is the game THAT bad?
Nice purchase.

How rare is the game? How did the seller obtain it?

$500.. wow, that's ridiculous :O
Well as long as your happy with your purchase, that's all that matters, whether it will be worth anything down the track is another thing. Collectables are always worth more if in original condition be it a game or whatever. But to a serious collector just having the game (be it good or bad) is what matters.
