My Latest Dragon Quest Collection (Picture Inside)


Recommended Posts

A couple of years ago I've shared my humble DQ collection with you. But after those years many things joined into my collection and so I wanted to share it with you.

You can see the picture of my collection below. Only a couple of side games are missing (like Young Yangus and Slime Mori-Mori) and all of them are CIB except for the DQ3 (SNES) and GB version of the DQ Monsters. Also there are some guide books in Japanese, DQ5 monsters box set, a couple figures, cards and amigurumis done by my wife.

It's so hard to gather a collection in a country like Turkey because or money is totally worthless (1$ = 5 Turkish liras). But I bought most of my stuff via eBay and I'm really proud of it.

I hope you like it also!!!

Good stuff. I had no idea there was a PS2 Torneko game.

Thanx. It's the 3rd game of Torneko Mystery Dungeon series. Too bad that it's only released in Japan and no translation patch is available though

Very nice. What's that DQ5 CD at the bottom?

Thanx. It's Guide to Dragon Quest V Monsters CD+ Bundle box. It contains a world map, a monster guide, monster card, artworks and a small soundtrack CD

I thought the third one was a GBA game. Is the PS2 one in full 3D like Young Yangus is?

It's both released on GBA and PS2. And yes, it's in complete 3D

Ah, so it was a dual version release. Good to know then.

Nice. Are you planning to add DQ XI to your collection in September?

If I can find it in a decent price, yes. Buying this type of stuff in Turkey is extremely expensive

Oh.

I suppose I am extremely ignorant as to the price of gaming in other countries.

How much do new games usually cost in Turkey?

From my understanding, a new game like DQXI will run over 3200 USD. That is, if my math and conversions are accurate

WHAT?!?!

How the hell does the price get hiked up so much?

Turkey Lira is valued at .18$ USD and the Turkey PSN shop has DQXI listed at 179,00. My only guess as to why the price would be significantly higher would be a combination of a weak currency, trade laws of some sort, and/or the cost of production in relation to sales. We often don't think about it because for us, English games sell a lot more so they can afford to charge less per unit. Somewhere like Turkey may have lower sales so in order to actually break even they need a higher price that will still somehow reach the target sales goal. I would bet dollars to doughnuts that there are things behind the scenes that we do not know in which are major contributors to said price or I have no idea how to read the Lira and totally messed up the conversion

Hmm, usually it's takes around 60-70 dollars in here. But the thing is, 1$ = 5,6 Turkish liras now and because of that we have to pay a huge amount of money for them. There is a huge economical crisis in Turkey right now due to our idiotic president and our money is losing value every single moment. Because of that I can not nearly buy anything from eBay anymore.

3 years ago 1$ was around 2,8 liras. Our money was still worthless but was still much better than this.

Does Turkey use Euros?  That makes sense in Euros.  But translating to $3200 seems a bit... much.

No, we use our own currency as Turkish Liras.

By the way Turkish Lira lost so much in value since my last post. Now 1$ = 6,5 Turkish Liras, so from now on it nearly impossible for me to buy cheap games from Ebay
