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.
