A lot of people remember this game as being relatively easy, and it could be – assuming you cheated. The famous Konami code would give you 30 lives, but if you instead tried to play without it, you are given only three lives, and any random pixel coming at you could spell doom. With no regenerating life, no armor, and no cover, all you can do in this game is run and run and run.
Uncharted 2: Fortune Hunter Edition – Price: $4,990
While Uncharted 2 is not a particularly rare game itself (in fact, it is one of the most popular and highly praised games available on the PlayStation 3), there is a certain edition of the title that has proved elusive for collectors. This was completely by design though, as Sony decided that for their limited edition version of the game, it really should be limited rather than just a more expensive bundle. The company only created 200 copies of the Fortune Hunter Edition and gave them out randomly to players who had spent some time on the official demo during selected weekends. Copies can sell for anywhere between $8,000 and $12,000 and come with the game, as well as an official art book and game guide along with a replica dagger.
1972 – Magnavox Odyssey (Hockey pictured)
Odyssey was the first ever video game console to be released. Did you know that its inventor Ralph Baer intended it to be a cable TV service? Note: As we travel forward through history, please keep in mind that this covers major U.S. released consoles only. So no Casio Loopy or ActionMax. Further, U.S. release dates are used.
1975 – Atari Pong
This is the only Pong we’ll cover. In fact, it was first distributed by Sears. There were around 40 pong-style consoles in the first generation.
