Here’s What A Nintendo 64DD Is Worth Today
According to an old listing from Nintendo Japan, the Nintendo 64DD was provided to those who signed up for a subscription to Randnet, an internet service that allowed users to surf the web and even send and receive e-mail. The N64DD connected to the bottom of the original console and included a disc drive allowing 64MB magnetic discs for data storage. During the Nintendo 64DD’s short run, it was never released outside of Japan. In 2001, Randnet was officially shut down and production for the N64 disc drive was ended (via IGN.)
Today, if you can find one of these accessories, they go for around $1,500 dollars due to their rarity — according to Price Charting. If you find one complete, still in its original box, it’ll likely run you about $2,900. For a unit in new condition, you can expect to pay a much higher price of $7,830 or more. Despite the failure of the device, it has gained the status of a novelty in the retro gaming world, raising its price well beyond what it was worth years ago.
Above you’ll see a video of a rare U.S. version of the peripheral — apparently only ever created as a prototype for a product that’d never actually hit store shelves. If you see one of these at a garage sale, snap it up!
