Over at the gamestop/ebgames website used. This was just discovered in the Play-asia thread, so i believe it deserves a separate one.

So for anyone that didnt take the plunge, and got tired of waiting on amazon, heres the next best thing...I suppose.

Tip: Search for a nearby store for further inspection of the items.

Dont forget to use the coupons
CAG16
SAVER
Your Edge Card code

to get up to 25% off ($30.23 + tax) with free shipping (but not free handling :-( )

apparently theres something weird with the math, and it doesn't add up...

Price will come out to $30.23 + tax when using SAVER and CAG16. Not sure why, since it should be $29.59, but oh well. CAG16 only takes off $5.74.

Nearly $15 in savings as Botticus put it:

The discounts online are not added on... so first they take off 16% and then 10% EDGE. So that's probably why...

OP, please give the original poster credit.:-\

Did you really? I guess if the title of the Play-asia got changed to show multiple venues to purchase this sought-after game, then this thread could get locked up right now

Wow, they actually fixed that. It always used to just be a straight 26%.

Ah, that's another $15 I could have saved if I had waited. Oh well.

Huh, they're suddenly listed as "Not for sale" on the GS website. Guess there were a lot of people waiting for it to drop.

Interesting note....

When I went to pick up FES today at gamestop, the manager that I'm tight with talked about the reprint from play asia. He mentioned and CONFIRMED to be that the reprint of Disgaea (1 or 2? forget) was indeed opened and sold as used (at a high price).

This could be a clear indication that gamestop is just opening their nocturne copies and selling them used.

... We already figured that out, a long time ago. They've done it before with pretty much every reprint.

That's a great price since I paid like $70 for it a year ago. [That's the highest I have ever paid for a used game] Ughh...

telling someone to use edge/googleCO etc.. is not a specific deal and should not be factored into posts like this

I actually found a used one complete at a GS and paid $60. I'd still pay $60, so you should all jump on this!

If you're willing to spend the money, and like the music, you can buy the two Japanese soundtracks and have all the songs. The soundtrack that came with the deluxe version has all the tracks from one of the soundtracks and selected songs from the other.

More importantly, people who are getting this game from either GS or Play-Asia - what type of PS2 case are you getting? The new or old one? Just out of curosity....

I bit on this one. I had credit I wanted to get rid of so it came to like 10bucks after the coupon codes. If it comes in poor condition I'll just in store return it.
I'll update when it comes in for any one that is hesitant to bite.
