I don't know if this has been covered yet, but a decent deal for a hard to find game. Was there a reprint recently?

Yep. Someone posted a link where someone was selling them new on amazon and ebay for $70 but this is much better.

It's possible there could be a reprint since Persona 3 sold extremely well for what it was... enough for Atlus to bring over Persona 3: FES, as well.

This might be Atlus trying to strike while the iron is hot and everyone is already excited over one Persona, surprise, here is Nocturne, get more of your SMT fix. It makes sense, when you think about it.

I guess we will know if Amazon suddenly gets new copies in stock, since Atlus goes directly through them now.

It seems too much of a coincidence that Play-Asia gets new copies at the same time as some random Ebay seller does, and decides to sell them lower than everyone else.

I called my lady friend last night and said my buddy had to beat off on my chest, she is kinda pissed at me, but it was the best idea I had all night, and I stand by it.

I second this. Great deal on Nocturne but I already own it.

I'd like to buy it, but I'll also be pissed if Amazon throws up a few thousand in a few days a lot cheaper than Play-Asia's price.

It's one of those things where I want to wait, because I don't really have $50, but hell, the game is like $150 for a new copy on Ebay... decisions, decisions.

I doubt it'll be up for very long at this rate.

Well if there is a reprint it wont go for $150 on ebay. If there is a reprint and the price will keep dropping.

Can anyone explain why Nocturne is so great? I was reading the Wiki of the game and it didn't interest me that much.

Eh, I dont buy shit to resell anymore, it was more or less "hey if this isnt a reprint im not ever buying this for insane Ebay prices".

If it had one, P-A would say, so I assume it doesn't.

The only thing stopping me from pulling the trigger is that if this really is a reprint, and copies show up on Amazon, they will be cheaper than P-A, who usually overcharges for their US games.

I'm going to laugh at the guy who bought 8 of them on Ebay if it ends up being a reprint.

Almost seems like that Ebay seller sold them that cheap because he wanted to get rid of them because he knows something is coming.

It sucks because I know if I pull the trigger, Amazon will have it for something insane like $30 by the time P-A ships my copy, and I'll get free 2 day shipping to boot... but if I don't pull the trigger, it will be gone foreveeeeeeeeeer.

Oh well, Fuck it, too much other shit to play anyways, so if it shows up elsewhere in the US, I'll get it, if not, oh well. Because I'll just be shelving the game in what, a week when FES hits? Then Mario Kart, then GTA... nah, can't pull the trigger.

What is the chance that is it not a reprint? How likely is that PA just found some sealed copies? That ebayer was also the first person to sell sealed Gitaroo Man just before the reprint. The evidences point to a reprint so far. I guess in a few days you can get it for $30.

That's what I'm thinking too... and it's actually PERFECT timing, as Atlus just teamed up with Amazon, I really can't think of a better way to boost their sales then throw an OOP game on there that most people pay a good amount for, for just a used copy.

Or maybe Gamestop and the like didn't want to carry the reprint, Atlus didn't have the proper distribution channels through their own store, but Amazon can more than handle the burden of distributing it.

That Ebay seller probably knows this, $70 is the sweet spot where he probably made a good deal of cash, and would get everything sold right away.

only the first shipment has the soundtrack, so proably no soundtrack with this reprint.
