    Rare Games

    What are some rare PS3 games, that would be difficult to get if I explicitly wanted the disc version? I'm preferably looking for NA titles.

    Thanks to Thunder for the platbar!!!

    Well.... JRPG's are kind of rare in the west, and if you don't go get Deadly Premonition: Director's Cut soon, you may be too late.

    It's a very small studio and they couldn't afford too many copies. The original version for the Xbox 360 is even more rare.

    Some Jrpg's indeed..

    Katamari and Africa are probably hard to get too.. At least here in my country (EU) when I wanted to buy them.. Could only find a used copy of Katamari in one shop back then and Africa I could only find in one online shop. Maybe they're easy to get in NA though.

    Well I know with Afrika, that the US version has trophy support. I'm not sure about the European version. That game isn't too rare. I've seen it on GameStop shelves in the past.

    Yeah, I don't know about NA. We don't have Gamestop here, but I never saw Africa in one of the shops who sell games here..
    I have trophy support as well and I think I have the EU version (not sure though).

    There may not be a difference between the PAL and NA versions, but I know the Asian version doesn't have trophies. Didn't there used to be a thread here that had all the different regional versions of games?

    Afrika seems rare to me, I have asked my local gamestop about it and they said they have no idea when the next one might come in and it is not available online (through gamestop) and no store within 100 miles has it.

    both Cross Edge and Disgaea 3 are very rare from what I've seen, with the former being around $75 new on amazon for NA atm. Okami HD is also rare if you're looking for the disc to the game as only the JP import has a disc format, but it does play with english text etc.

    I've seen large numbers of different JRPGs in my area including several so called limited collectors editions. If it has to have trophy support I would have to go with NBA Elite 11 rumor has it that EA pulled copies off the shelves and you could only get them from 711. I have a copy but I'm keeping mine sealed.

    Afrika is rare, yet that's because it's sort of boring, and not a popular genre to begin with.

    It was the only time I heard someone say 'I've never actually seen this game before' when I traded it in. I asked them how long they've been working at the EBGames/Gamestop, and in total, they said 6 years, 4 years of which were fulltime.

    We have an EB World which has 9 sealed copies of Afrika. Another game that I have never seen until this past weekend is Summer Challenge. I've seen tons of the Winter version but none of the other.

    I ran a search for it through GameStop. One of my closest stores actually has a new copy. Lol.

    i'm a collector and from my own research and experience, the rarest PS3 games tend to be collectors editions for example the uncharted 2 fortune hunter edition or fallout 3 collectors edition . but for standard edition games i'd have to say tales of vesperia
