This is accurate in the U.S. as well. A lot of the Dreamcast fans that I know are currently hunting down all of the shmups to start their collections. I, myself, need to hurry up and get the remaining shmups left that will complete that part of my collection.

I'm very proud to own a sealed copy of Border Down (standard edition). That game stays at $150+ on eBay.

Also, all of the Capcom "For Matching service" online variations like JoJo, Tech Romancer, Street Fighter 2 X, Zero 3 etc. are steadily rising and all fetch decent prices (if you can get them at all).


I bought Super Street Fighter II X for Matching Service when it first came out. Excellent port of the arcade. I've never bothered to check on its price.

That's for a sealed copy. Used it's around $33. Though Amazon is probably the worst place for sealed, older games in general. The prices are usually ridiculously inflated.

Pretty much every Dreamcast game is going up. The more years that go by, the more of a cult following it amasses.

Not to mention that a whole new generation, Gen Z'ers, are now at the age creating more demand while the supply has always been the same finite amount since roughly 2001.

I have only recently looked at dreamcast game prices since you could actually still buy a dreamcast new and only crap the prices for games are outrageous. I was buying a lot of games on clearance at the end of the dreamcast's life new for $5 a piece no matter the game. Ill never forget getting a STACK of games from Best Buy. After seeing the prices online it seems like everything has skyrocketed just like Saturn games obviously not to THAT extent but theres no way in hell Im paying $40-50 for Jet Grind Radio when I bought it new for $5. Discjuggler it is then.
