Rare Playstation 3 Games

With the announcement that Sony is ceasing production of the Playstation 3, I decided to write my list of 5 Playstation 3 games that will be the rarest in a few year. This list will not include Limited or Special Edition of any games.

1) Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon

This is the final game in the Legend of Spyro trilogy. The game begins three years later, after The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night with Spyro and Cynder, who are now teenagers, being broken free of their crystalline prison by mysterious enemies known as Grublins. Spyro and Cynder must save the land once again from the Dark Master, Malefor. Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon has been starting to creep up the price charts with a CIB copy costing you $50.

2) Combat Wings: The Great Battles of WWII

Combat Wings puts you in the pilot seat as you take on the Axis forces to try and help them win the war. This game was developed and published by a little know company from Poland called City Interactive. While the game got lackluster reviews, it has been out of print and started to climb the charts. A loose copy will cost you over $60.

3) Afrika

Afrika puts you into the role of a photographer for National Geographic, where you explore the plains of Africa taking photos of wild animals. One of the early highlights is taking photos, while riding in a Jeep, of a cheetah chasing down a Gazelle. You rarely see this game in stores and it has been climbing the price charts since its limited release. Afrika currently retails $63 for CIB.

4) Class of Heroes 2G

Only a few hundred physical copies were made available of Class of Heroes 2G through the Canadian online shop Video Games Plus, with the rest of the production run being exclusive to those who had pre-ordered on the Gaijinworks' website. A low print run has driven this games value up with some copies going for $80 or more.

5) NBA Elite 11

NBA Elite 11 was going to be the follow up to the NBA Live series but was cancelled due to numerous glitches being found, however some copies found a way into circulation and it became highly collectible. NBA Elite 11 currently retails for $1028.
