Three Hotspots To Find Rare Psone Games

There is an entire market devoted to people who are still using “outdated” gaming counsels. It may have appeared like everyone on the planet was sleeping in front of Target for the new PlayStation 3 or the Nintendo Wii, but we didn’t see the large population of people who were content with the same gaming system they had 10 years ago. In 2005 Sony sold over 100 million units of the PSone. A large portion of collectors and gamers have found that gaming experience has little to do with cutting edge graphics and more to do with replayability and originality. Games like Final Fantasy VIII, Thrill Kill, and Vagrant Story have stood the test of time and are seen by gamers as classics. There is also a large market for imported games like Tobal 2, Kurushi Final, and Intelligent Qube. While technology has been improving pre-gen game systems have become to be seen as obsolete causing buyers to work a little harder to find their favorite titles. If you are a new buyer looking for some nostalgia in your gaming experience here are some places to look.

Auction Sites- This is a no-brainer and is probably a buyers first option. Currently there are over 38,000 listings on Ebay. If you are willing to pay the right price you should be able to find what you are looking for. The downside is that there is no real way to know what kind of condition the disk is in. Be sure to communicate with the seller before bidding and always check their feedback.

Forums- This is my favorite option. You can meet like-minded gamers that may buy, sell, or trade new and used games. These sites offer more then just games they offer community, tips, and resources. Take some time to investigate it out online and find the right community for you.

Bargain shelves in Game stores- Most store owners do not have any idea about the goldmine they are sitting on. Some stores have thousands of games that they are trying to get rid of. If you have a little patience and time dig through these games, you may find exactly what you were looking for or possibly even something better.

Here is your last tip…Have fun! It doesn’t matter if you are Psone gamer or a Xbox 360 gamer if it isn’t fun anymore stop doing it. This is what it is all about so have your friends over to play, argue, and trashtalk.
