After the reveal of the release date of Armored Coire 6 Fires of Rubicon, the wait for the next production FromSoftware it gets bigger and bigger. And the hype towards the return of the series is such that it is having significant repercussions in the retrogaming field.
Since it is the return of a brand that has been standing still for ten years (the latest game, Armored Core Verdict Day, dates back to 2013), the release of the sixth game could push fans or newbies to want to get closer to the series, perhaps recovering some of the previous episodes to play on their old consoles. After all, in the field of collecting the Armored Core they have never reached particularly large figures, therefore recovering some of the main games would not even be so expensive economically.
This though until recently, given that many dealers and collectors are riding the wave of hype by putting the previous titles in the series at ever higher prices. The most demanding in this sense remains the progenitor published on the first PlayStation, in general always the most expensive of the lot: if previously it was possible to take home Armored Core for 80 dollars, for some time its price has risen, even touching averages on $220, to then settle on 130 dollars. But a similar situation has also affected other chapters: think of Armored Core 3which from an average value of 25 dollars has risen up to 75, or even ad Armored Core 4 in version Xbox 360which went from about $10 to $35.
Even taking a tour online among European retailers, a similar trend is noticed, with much higher prices even for games such as Armored Core For Answer or Verdict Day itself, which could previously be fetched for a few euros. In short, if you are a collector and we wanted to expand your knowledge of the FromSoftware franchise, get ready to spend good money.
