The game will be no more a collector's item than every other random game that ever came out is a collector's item. The fact of the matter is that ALL games eventually cease production.
Gamestop a month ago threw something like 300 game titles from their store in a furnace because they no longer sold and they couldn't think of a way to get people to take them. Games like Sky Odyssey or Unison or even Madden 2002 were obliterated. The same theory that Too Human becoming a sudden collector's item would mean that all 300+ of the those titles are pretty much a collector's item too.
So why is everyone so concerned about getting a copy of THIS game now, when they could have picked up the 300+ games Gamestop was getting rid of for a combined price of around $30? --- Owner of The NES, SNES, N64, GCN, Wii, SMS, GEN, TG16, PSX, PS2, PS3, XBOX, 360, GB, GBC, GBA SP, GB Micro, DS, DSLite, PSP and a lot of crappy games. --BLINGO!

I for one bought a new copy. I put in so many hours having a new copy just seems right. I just checked amazon and since i purchased mine the price has doubled. --- The average anime character has 47 gallons of blood.

Because not only its destruction was announced extremely early, but also its source code will be destroyed, therefore preventing any further rerelease years later.

For the record, games at Gamestop don't get "thrown into a furnace", they get "pennied out", which means that the price sticker prints out at $00.01 and they are to be field destroyed out back...
...which generally means that employees take them. --- Tell them to send the next most dangerous.

Theoretically, it could become a collector's item. However, people would really be over estimating how much that really means. Best case scenario, Too Human 2 comes out and it is the greatest game ever and has super devoted die hard fans that absolutely must have a copy of the original Too Human. A near mint copy of Too Human would still only get about $15. Granted, it's much better than the $3 it currently goes for, but it's never going to be a title that goes for more than that.
