I just can't believe that DeNardo, owner of the only know game cartridge of Gamma-Attack thinks that his cart is worth $500,000! Top value of this game is listed at $130.00+.

I'd give him a $1 for it.  LOL.

 

To be honest, I don't get where used game stores and people come up with the prices for these games.  And honestly if I got a hold of a game, new or CIB, no matter how rare it was, it would be getting played.  What's the point in getting them if you are not going to play them?  Just my opinion.

I agree with you k. If something is too valuable to open and play, I would just sell it.

Im the same way.   The only time you'll see an unopened box in my collection is when I have a loose copy to play.

 Haha...it wouldn't be valuable once I got my hands on it.  I would have to play it first...then maybe sell it if it's not a good game. :)

If all of the components in the cartridge were made from super-rare precious metals and the rest of the empty cart space was made out of diamonds, then maybe.

 

Otherwise, I find it difficult to justify any old game costing 4-digits, much less six
