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:

You could message the seller to see if he would post overseas.



Just got a reply, he's willing to send it overseas
Ok guys,

well i just won the ebay auction for the sealed copy.

I have decided as a result to put up for sale my unsealed copy of the game. It will come in a promo case for NBA 11 rather than the ugly green case i have pictured.

If anyone is interested in making an offer private message me. All offers upwards from $600 will be considered. Note : i purchased the game without a case and have sourced the promo case seperately hence the increased value.

I played it once but have shelved it in the collector's cabinet since to not damage it. Hmmmmmm i guess it would be special for mmgn to have the only review on the net of it.

Interesting comments, perhaps they should join us here (evil)
Is reviewing this game permitted by EA? or will they ask to bring it down? (unless they liked the review [MOG] )

EDIT:
Another one on eBay for a Buy It Now price!

Price: US $529.99

Ok assuming no one buys it off me and once i receive the sealed copy i have just bought, i am happy to send you my promo copy for it to be reviewed.
Hmmm I might by that one. It is sealed too, so would be worth even more.
So tempting, on my watch list for now :P
I just bought MLB 11 the show from eBay so I'll think about this for a day and if it is still there tomorrow I will grab it.

Buy it.
Seriously because someone will snap it up.

I am slightly concerned at how many seem to be popping up on ebay as this might affect value if there are a lot.

LoL I want to buy it but I am getting married in January and every penny counts at the moment, the fiancé would KILL me.
But if it is still there in the morning, I'll take iras a sign (I need some lame sign/excuse lol) and buy it.
Ok i have an question you got it for ps3 in an xbox case ps3 is down how can you update it?....

The xbox case automatically updates it wirelessly before you put it into the console.
It is something Microsoft implemented but not many people know about. It is also why updates are less frequent and quicker on the 360.

My bad.......


....I'm the turd who posted it so it probably got more attention. But as for purchasing it....as Shaggy featuring RikRok would admit...."it wasn't me". www.youtube.com/...

[MOG] :D

Hmmmm. Maybe it's not worth as much because it's in an X-BOX case??....the one EndZion posted would've be a better investment for the same price IMO. Especially considering it's a lot of money {for a game anyway}.

Thats why i bought one sealed in the packet and am now selling the lose one in a promo case.
Having received my sealed copy i have now posted my unsealed copy for auction on ebay. Anyone interested can take a look at:

$8 postage plus insurance fees??? For $600 I would offer free insurance....
PLUS I don't think you can use insurance on a pre-paid express bag...

Cheers for the advice might need to adjust the postage details. Insurance is not free - if you want it enough you will pay for it and if not, a person doesnt get it. Standard commercial transaction.
Well registered post only costs an an extra $3 above normal post
Yeah, insurance should be paid by the consumer, not the seller. The seller's obligation essentially ends once they post it. Even if it gets lost in the mail, the seller wouldn't be liable if they have proof of postage. They transfer the obligation directly to the post office to deliver the product.
So i thought i would drag this thread back from the doldrums......why?

To comment on the belief that this game would not be worth anything. I sourced a sealed copy and purchased it a while back, and then sold my unsealed copy.

Has the value of this gone up? You had better believe it. One of these sold for well over $2500 recently on ebay. It was a sealed copy that had been graded by the video game authority.

I am in the process of arranging for mine to be graded by the VGA and sealed.

I have said it before and said it again, rare video games are valuable irrespective of if they are a good game or not.
