Copy of ultra rare Dinopark Tycoon for sale on ebay

Post by Mattack » Wed Oct 12, 2016 8:23 pm

Someone is selling a copy of Dinopark Tycoon here:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/RARE-DinoPark-T ... Sw8w1X-fOg



It appears to be the game only with no box, and the asking price is $1100. Seems a bit steep for just the game but then again you almost never see a copy go on sale :D

Obviously, it is not mine. I am very fortunate to own a CIB copy of this game, and I am not currently thinking about selling it.

It looks like the listed copy for just the CD has been sold for $750!

I would kill to know exactly how many copies of this game were actually made, or even just a ballpark figure. :?:

I find it funny that this game got such a low production run, given that it was put out at a time when 3DO was still playing for the all-in-one multimedia platform title. Maybe they were banking on doing a second pressing once they got a better sense of how much demand there was for the game?

Also, crazy that people are willing to spend that much for it, regardless of how few copies there are.

Yeah. I guess there is a reason why the term, "collectard", is actually a thing.
