Well, it's not a specifically good game so the factor for the high price is more than likely a combination of the complying with factors:

It's somewhat rare

It's component of a collection of 4 games (which boosts it's collectability because civilization like to finish sets. In the case of .hack the 4 games create a picture alengthy the spine once they're lined up)

It has actually a tie-in through a popular anime series

It comes through a bonus DVD (aacquire, more collectable)

Those determinants seem to have a multiplier impact and the end result is a high-priced mediocre game :)

Edit: Just had actually an additional thought... Since it's a set, and also people prefer to finish their sets, and the initially few games offered better than the fourth tbelow must be even more duplicates of 1-3 out tbelow without sufficient duplicates of #4 to fulfill the demand of those that desire to finish their set. So there's an additional reason for the inflated price.

Winner - FotW 8/28-9/3

I did a bit of google looking before I posted, and also I see the game detailed as "expensive" in their lists of top 10 X and also Y..but no one ever before states why. I see no point out of it being rare or difficult to find (there are constantly 10-20 of them obtainable on amazon alone). I'm starting to think I don't desire to get my full .hack collection if it's gonna cost me $60+ for 1 game that is that old.

Its rare, and also its part of a collection, and its an anime tie-in.

I found my cherimelted copy for $20 at a Sci-fi convention, of all areas. Other world search for T-shirts or statues, I run straight for the video games. Considering the mark-up at conventions, I have because stopped doing it.
