If you have been a Xbox fan since Microsoft first entered the console arena in 2001, you’ll want to check if you’ve amassed any rare and valuable retro games in your collection. Research of PriceCharting retro gaming site revealed the rare and valuable original Xbox, Xbox 360 and Xbox One games that are selling the most on the collectors’ market. A number of Xbox games released in the UK are now worth hundreds of pounds, while an Xbox 360 game released in the US is now worth over £6,000.

When it comes to the original Xbox, the two most valuable games released in the UK are the Room Zoom racer and Xiaolin Showdown.

A brand new copy of Room Zoom fetches over £600 while Xiaolin Showdown has been known to sell for over £920.

Other rare and valuable Xbox games include OutRun 2006: Coast 2 Coast and Capcom’s cult classic mech game Steel Battalion, which was sold with a huge controller that looks like it was taken right inside a built-in mech. .

Explaining why Steel Battalion is so sought after in a blog post, PriceCharting previously stated, “Steel Battalion is a Mech game that was sold with a large, specialized controller. The controller tried to spawn inside a Mech and had nearly 40 buttons. Because the controller was so large the game retailed for $200 and only limited quantities were produced. Initial production was close to 2,000 units but the game was re-released, adding a few more copies on the market.

In terms of Xbox 360 releases, for the UK market the most valuable games are Halo 3 (Legendary Edition) and Fallout New Vegas (Collector’s Edition) – with new releases of these worth £265 and £191.

However, if you like importing games, you may have a game worth a lot of money.

Xbox unveils the next Series X console

This title is the US version of Dead Space (Ultra Limited Edition) for Xbox 360.

A full boxed version is worth over £5,900 – while a new version is worth over £6,000.

Talking about why this edition is so valuable, PriceCharting in a previous blog post said: “When the original launch of Dead Space was in 2008, EA made 1,000 ultra limited edition copies which they sold for $149 each This special edition includes the game itself, special packaging, “Downfall” animated DVD, lithograph, art book, graphic novel, and Ishimura patch.

“The price is much higher than other limited editions because EA made such a small quantity and never reprinted them.”

When it comes to Xbox One, the most valuable games released in the UK are the Collector’s Editions of Titanfall 2, Doom Eternal and Cyberpunk 2077.
