For those who follow the Uncharted series will know of all the cool limited edition items that have appeared on auction. Almost all items were made available to N.America & Europe with the exception of one; The Uncharted 3 Gold Dualshock Limited Controller.
Now it’s not insanly rare as one seller from Hong Kong is selling the game + the controller and has 6 in stock. But if you want to stick on the safe side, one US seller has the limited edition controller up. It’s not known how many of these controllers were made but we do know they were only made available for Japan. This particular controller shown today was a special prize at the AMC Event. Item is brand new and has one bidder on it. I still haven’t figured out why ND never released this controller over here.
Also on auction is the rarest Neo Geo game; Quiz Chibi Maruko Chan Deluxe. For those who don’t know, Maruko Deluxe Quiz is a notorious Neo Geo cart among collectors. What is it? Well, Maruko Deluxe Quiz is an insanely obscure Japanese quiz game with super graphics that was released back in 1996. The game was released in very few numbers, although I was never able to find how many were released. Because of this, the game is on a lot of Neo Geo collectors wish list. This game fetches for a lot of money, and the last time a Chibi Maruko Deluxe Quiz popped up on regular auction it ended at $3499.99! This time there’s a “Make Offer” on the auction and so far no offers have been made.
Please note, this game is also known to have plenty of bootlegs floating around and sometimes it’s incredibly hard to distinguish the original release versus the bootlegs. Visit this Neo Geo forum thread on how to pick out the bootlegs. So a little bit of research is needed on your end. It’s a little too premature to judge how this auction will turn out since it just got listed, but I imagine it won’t last till the end of the week depending on the seller’s expectations. This is one game I would love to have.

Crash Bandicoot Original Black Label Sealed – This is one game I don’t see too often sealed on eBay. Infact, I don’t think I’ve even seen a VGA Crash Bandicoot. This is the only black label copy thats sealed and it does come with some faults which is too bad otherwise the price would have been dead on. If you don’t mind the price tag and small plastic rip then check this auction out.
Sonic Adventure Plush Set 12″ Japan – This is a hard set to make, and just Big the Cat fetches passed the $100 mark, if not more. So $200 for the whole set isn’t too bad. Seller says: “These are very rare plushes won in Japan during the launch of the Sonic Adventure Dreamcast game in Japan in 1999. only two have tags but all 4 are new”.
