King's Quest VI, the only game that was designed by both Roberta Williams and Jane Jensen, is hands down the best King's Quest game ever. And its CD version was even more impressive and one of the few literally multimedia gaming offerings ever. Now, you could believe me and try grabbing King's Quest VI in its big box over from eBay. Seller ships worldwide. Then again, you could google around and discover its glory.

Always thought the ZX Interface 2 for the ZX Sectrum was a brilliant addition to the machine, what with its two joystick ports, the printer port and an insta-loading cartridge-like ROM slot, but apparently neither the masses nor game developers loved the thing. Must have been the price, the failure to be Kempston compatible and the distinct lack of popularity. Only 10 games were developed for its cartridge slot.
As the Interface 2 was quite the flop, you can imagine it's not the cheapest of Speccy expansions. Especially when boxed. Still, prices are far from astronomical and 25£, 50$ or 30 euro should be considered more than reasonable. Oh, and there's a fantastic boxed Sinclair ZX Spectrum Interface 2 with the Chess ROM game eBay auction going on. Seller ships worldwide too.

Released back in 1980 by Mattel, the Intellivision was a revolutionary (early) 16-bit console that never truly managed to threaten Atari. Still, the thing is a rare and very entertaining addition to any retro gaming collection. So, uhm, why not follow a link to an Intellivision & 8 games eBay auction? It's UK only and quite a bargain. Oh, and the Intellivision usually goes for more than 35£.

The Phillips CD-i 370 is a rather rare, portable and powerful version of the CD-i console. It is fully compatible with all CD-i games, comes complete with a digital video decoder to play VCDs, offers TV-out options, sports a rechargeable battery, can do both PAL and NTSC stuff, and is beautiful and compact enough to actually be ported around. To find out more about portable CD-i consoles click here.
To actually grab a CD-i 370 in great condition and what seems a logical price try this CD-i 370 eBay auction. Seller ships worldwide. Mind you, the battery pack of the console on offer does seem quite problematic. On the plus side, you do get a manual.

The Atari Lynx may not have been a commercial success, but still managed to attract a cult following that is keeping the machine alive even in our DS/PSP infested day. The Lynx also managed to be the most powerful handheld available for something like 10 years and featured many interesting innovations, some excellent games and a fantastic colour LCD display. Average Lynx prices start at 20£, 40$ or 25 euros.

Rare game are astonishingly rare and Dragon Force for the Sega Saturn is definitely one of the better of this... uh... rare breed of games.
