    Basically a friend has a copy of Space Channel 5 pt 2 on PS2, and he discovered that one of those second hand games places were offering £10 for that particular title, which for them is astronomical.

    My friend then did a google search and some Japanese seller is selling his for around £120... so that's got him wondering about his, but exactly where can he go to find out a going market rate?

    All I could really suggest was eBay, but thats hardly accurate, at the end of the day most of what you see are BIN which are what someone is expecting to recieve, and you'll probably miss actual auctions which probably will reflect going market rate... and thats assuming your games isn't so rare that it never appears in the first place.

    Any help would be much appreciated, I myself wouldn't mind pricing up some of my gems... (Panzer Dragoon Saga on Saturn! Shenmue 2 on DC! Demolition Girl on PS2!)

    Amazon has a huge game market to explore (both new and used older games). A lot of the asking prices are right in market range. Go snoop around a bit and see what you can find.
