Are any XBox original games worth much?

    My nephew has given me a bunch of XBox titles - about 40. They're generally not in great condition and i'm wondering if i bother going through the collection one by one to see if anything is worth selling.

    I've never had an XBox, and from the look of the covers - it looks like there's no such thing as a 'rare title' in this era of consoles.

    EDIT - Here's what i've got...

    You could just lay them out and take a photo of all the covers.

    Stubbs the Zombie is the main one I can think of $100+
    https://www.ebay.com.au/sch/i.html?...ubbs+the+zombie&LH_Complete=1&rt=nc&LH_Sold=1

    just had a quick glance at sold items on ebay over $100.
    seems like Def Jam fight for NY and Jet Set Radio Future can go for $100 or more as well.

    I sent a mate of mine the link to sold copies of Stubbs a month or so ago and asked if he still had the game. He threw out the games with the xbox when it died. :sick:

    If you find something of value and the case is the only rough part of it you can go get a copy of top spin from CEX for $0.75 and do a case swap before flipping it if that's your intention.

    Stubbs is great. I clocked the PC version back in 2006/2007, I distinctly remember the night I finished it. Thinking at one point a car in the street had its headlights on my window. Turns out it was just the sun coming up.

    The Grand Theft Auto Trilogy box set which I happen to have a copy of sometimes goes for more than it should. I have a copy of JSRF as well. Both were part of console bundles I bought so I kind of lucked out on those. They aren't consistently $100+ though.

    There's rare titles for every generation of consoles that had physical media.

    I admit it's hard to imagine when there would have been millions sold. It's not like disks from the 80s or 90s when it would have been quite rare to sell a million copies of a game. My kingdom for The Great Giana Sisters on Amiga - it was only on the shelf for a few weeks i think because Nintendo sued them :(

    As an (ex) avid Japanese PS2 game collector, I have numerous titles in my collection that only saw 10,000 copies printed. All of them worth a fortune today.

    You'll find a few XBox titles like that too.

    None in my lot i bet :D

    Was the low volume because they were poorly received? Or perhaps deliberate 'limited edition'?

    simpsons hit and run can go for a bit.

    that original non classics copy of splinter cell is good for softmod exploiting too but it doesn't command a high price tag as its fairly common.
