Do you guys think a new factory sealed copy of, "Baten Kaitos," for $29.99 is an intelligent investment as a collectible?

If it's not a good investment for a collectible, then at least it is an investment in a good RPG.

From my experience, rare Japanese RPG's (and shmups) tend to be better collectibles and rise up in value more than other games/genres from other countries.

Why SKTTR, is, "Baten Kaitos," considered a rare JRPG?

Well, I don't consider it rare. Not yet, since it was one of the later Gamecube games. But with the years passing it gets harder and harder to find for a reasonable price. There are plenty of JRPG collectors, and people building up Gamecube collections now that the games are cheap. At least that's how the situation looks like in PAL regions. It can be completely different in NA.

Another thing to keep in mind is that Baten Kaitos was co-produced by MONOLITH SOFT, and with the Xenoblade Chronicles hype around now there might be quite a bunch of people interested in other MONOLITH SOFT games for their Wii and search for Baten Kaitos and other games like Disaster: Day of Crisis now.

That seems like a fair price for an unopenned copy and it's value should only go up. But it's one of the most popular GC RPGs and not exactly a rare find.

BTW Gamestop is liquidating their Gamecube games now for 70% off so you might want to check out your Gamestop soon before the good stuff is all gone. Wink
BTW they're doing the same thing with PS2 games now too I think they're 60% off. Wink
I saw Rogue Galaxy for $5.99 used and GTA: San Andreas for $9.99 new. Wink

Nice! Did you decide to purchase a copy because of this thread Stinkerbri? Anyways, I can't wait for the upcoming review.

SKTTR and gamerace, let me put it this way, do you think a factory sealed copy of, "Baten Kaitos," will become a valuable collectible someday?

If you hold onto it long enough. But there are other rarer games that will probably be worth much more.

If WiiU has GC games on the download service then Baten Kaitos may well be on it since Nintendo now owns Monolith Soft. Not sure how that will affect value but certainly softens demand.

gamerace, can you please give me a few examples of rarer titles I should keep an eye out for?
