Eek What is the most expensive Amiga game ever?

I don't know what the most expensive brand new Amiga game ever is but this has to be one of the most expensive second hand Amiga games I've ever seen:

Some poeple are totally crazy on eBay. Either that or they're all loaded to their eyeballs. Funny thing is that I bought this exact same game (in mint condition) from my local car boot sale for 50p!! If I pick another one up for 50p I'll sell it.

Arrow Collectors item?

If a gamescollector is really desperate to collect this RPG, who knows what he/she will bid?

What was the most expensive game in the Amiga days? I think it was Space Ace or any other Readysoft game. They cost 40 pounds if I am right. -Now call that poor value for money.

Weird, I don't remember this game being done by Psygnosis....


However, I'm willing to bet it doesn't come with the GOR coin I got with Chaos Strikes Back! That guy is probably keeping that.

Psygnosis bought the rights to re-release Dungeon Master and Chaos Strikes Back together in one pack in 1992. You're right it doesn't come with any of the Chaos Strikes Back extras like the fold out Map and Gor coin. They were only available in the original release of Chaos Strikes Back.

Nightlong $70

Nightlong comes on 3 or 4 CDs and cost $70 plus another $20 for the PowerPC add-on. It is developed by Clickboom.

56.00??? Sheesh...that is insane! Of course it's being bid on by a (0) user, too, so that says a lot. This person has a high likelihood of never paying that high sum.

BTW, my copy of CSB has the Gor coin, too!

And I thought I was an Amiga freak.

That's one strong display of faith and devotion

I'd never folk out cash like that for boxed games. Amiga hardware yes, but not boxed games. Unless someone nicked Bloodwych.

Guess I'm just an Amiga Enthusiast........

...and Preacher. Hail the Amiga fellow brothers!
