Silent Hill Game's Values Skyrocket For the Moment

Before the Silent Hill movie made its way into theatres (which looked laughable when I saw commercials for it), no game in the Silent Hill series really sold for much money (they all were in the $10 range, and every used Used Game Store U.S.A. had many copies of each title in).

However, now with the release of the big budget movie, the games are selling like crazy all of a sudden and are going for ludicrous prices on eBay! Silent Hill’s 2 (Xbox ‘Restless Dreams’ version included) and 3 are going for nearly $45 each on average and the original 1999 PSX release is going for about $60! (Even Silent Hill 4 is going for reasonable rates on eBay. What I’ve played of that game is awful, though).

It’s amazing how much the value can increase when the hype of a big movie or another game release surrounds it (just a few weeks ago I posted about Final Fantasy VII’s value going up as well, probably due to the incoming release of the Advent Children DVD). Will these games fetch the same amount of money a year from now (or even mere months)? Not very likely. However, it may be wise to snatch up a copy and sell it off (or sell one from your personal collection and re-buy it again in a few months) as there is a good amount of profit to be had.

From the ads I've seen, Silent Hill doesn't look half bad. I must admit I've only ever played the first game on the old PSX, but the scenes on TV look quite faithful to what was in the game...apart from that you played a guy in the game (I think...it's all gone misty...just like Silent Hill!)

And I have to add that Silent Hill 3, according to reviews and my demo-based opinion, is atmospheric to say the least...

And, oh mama, what a big update!
