11 (My favorite of the bunch): Cross Edge
Nothing sets a game collector's heart a-flutter quite like obscure, limited run Japanese RPGs. Cross Edge, published by Nippon Ichi Software America, fits the bill perfectly. A crossover RPG featuring characters from Capcom, Namco Bandai, Gust Corporation, and the publisher Nippon Ichi, Cross Edge is a traditional Japanese RPG that you may not have even heard of. It launched in 2009, right in the midst of the first Infamous and Prototype games, and copies were hard to come by from the beginning. If you love RPGs and you missed Cross Edge, well...prepare to pay a pretty hefty catching up fee.
In early July of 2010, it was confirmed through NIS America's forums that Tim Langdell and his company Edge Games had begun legal action against NIS America due to the name of the game. Tim Langdell is notorious for suing video game companies over properties that contain the word "Edge". However, since his removal from the IGDA and a court decision throwing out his trademark claim to the word "edge", he has been ordered to give financial compensation to any products damaged by his litigation - including Cross Edge, and to no longer attempt to obstruct their sale. NIS America has not resumed sales of the game as of May 2012, however.
In a nutshell, The game is out of print.
Price: $150 (New/Sealed) $100 (Used)
