Overpriced Final Fantasy XII swag sells on eBay



Recommended Videos

Ryu Kazama who was at the London Final Fantasy XII launch party dropped us a line about an eBay auction with some of the swag from the event. The seller has a bunch of FFXII postcards, the “limited edition” (read: sampler) soundtrack, the rare FFXII Nono moogle that 100 lucky people got for waiting in line, and an autographed copy of Final Fantasy XII.  The auction has soared to £230 ($450!!) and while Final Fantasy fever is at a high point in the UK, maybe the world, $450 is a lot to pay for a signed game and a plush toy. Ryu Kazama who has the signed FFXII PS2 says this:


”Makes me wonder how much I’d make for my collection…just take out the Moogle, add the signed PS2 plus Japanese game, add a normal, unsigned game (PAL), posters and imported FFXII map book or something. Oh, and a complete collection of Potions (yes, that nasty drink). And the FFXII 8MB Memory Card from Japan. The complete official OST too and the US FFXII Collector’s Edition. Hmmm…nah, I’m keeping these babies for a good while yet. Until I happen to need to owe some mob boss some money.”


Are signed video games really worth hundreds and hundreds of dollars? Or does Final Fantasy have such a strong following of collectors that this auction is the exception to the rule. Personally, I’m beginning to wonder how much my signed copy of Metal Gear Solid is worth…
