    What happened to black label being expensive?

    It used to be if you sold a "black label" PS1 game, such as Final Fantasy IX, you'd get $200 without batting an eye. What happened to black labels being expensive and sought after?

    They're not expensive anymore? I'm working on rebuilding my GameCube library and i usually try and go with new black label copies of games and everything i want is upwards of $75-$100 on Ebay.

    But if I were to buy a black label final fantasy VII, I wouldn't pay much.

    I don't know. Maybe I'm talking about a used one and not a new one.

    It's only really FF7 that has such a high value for black label and that's if it's either

    A) The one with the misprint and/or
    B) Brand new and sealed

    An unsealed FF7 black label will probably cost you ~$30, probably due to the game being easily available on PSN now. And the PC version brand new and sealed costs even more than a PS1 black label new and sealed, mostly $300+.

    Black label games have gone down since PS1 titles started releasing on the PSN. FF7 went from $100 to $40 after it was released on the PS Store.

    Many rare PS1 titles were worth a lot because it was the only way to play them. Now the only PS1 titles worth much, are unopened black label rare titles. Mostly hard to find RPG's.
