With shipping resistance retribution is $19.97 + tax. Not bad at all. I'd assume it's the same for Phantasy Star, didn't bother to check. :lol:

Gotta eventually get around to buying Resistance. Big fan of the series. I know TRU and their website are separate entities, so does anyone know the in-store price?

In store? Awesome. I kind of wish it was Phantasy Star 0 instead of Portable, but that's a great price.

I played a friend's copy of Resistance Retribution for a while but not enough to be able to gauge how good a transfer of the Resistance console experience it was. Anyone have input?

Is TRU still linked to amazon at all? I assume not. I have prime so itd be nice not to have to pay for shipping.. Closest TRU is 35 mins away so id prefer not to waste the gas money plus tax ugh.

Guess they are not. I wish Amazon would price match it. Id be game with prime.. 2 day free shipping, no tax. Itd be another insane deal for a top PSP game (got Dissidia for $15 through amazon a couple days ago)

i think i picked up Phantasy Star Portable: off gamestop a year or two ago (whever their dollar days sale was for i think 19.99 or was this game 9.99)

still sealed LOL

if amazon would PM would pick up resistance ..though im going right past a TRU tomorrow might stop and see

game is only worth 600 goozex pts (30 cash) not worth it to flip (be close to 20 after tax and shipping maybe even 22)

Retribution's single player was much better then Resistance 2's single player. It puts it to shame. Also, some portions of it are quite challenging.

Be aware as well with the release of Adhoc Party for the PS3 that there are more people breaking out Phantasy Star Portable to play multiplayer. There should be some carryover to Phantasy Star Portable 2 when it is eventually released here in the US as well....

Phantasy Star Portable is really good and super worth it at that price. It's pretty much the game I'm most angry about not being available for the GO and the sequel is my most anticipated PSP game by far (other than maybe P3Portable).

Phantasy Star Portable is weak compared to PSP2 and Phantasy Star Zero.

Does anyone know if you can still bring used games into TRU for a gift card? I have a bunch of old games I dont play anymore (some old sport games that have decent value at tru) so just curious. I got 4 games that i have not played in forever tru shows the trade in value online as $35.. So I could pay for both games without spending more $ lol.. I mean I got the $ but I have been blowing too much.

PSP2 wont be out for months if it all and PS0 is on a different system and is more different than better. It better captures the feel of the original PSO and has online play without needing a ps3; but the graphics/camera/controls/available pallets blow. Only being able to map 6 actions/items is nearly inexcusable as is any reasonable way of weapon switching.

That's kinda like saying dont buy Halo 3 cheap because Halo Reach and Uncharted 2 are better.

Original PSO called. It wants its control scheme back. It was always only 6 mappable actions.

The PSP version is worth it, IMHO. The campaign is super long, the gameplay is quite good, and it even has online multiplayer with voice chat.

Wish this was an Amazon sale... Good price for Phantasy Star but shipping and tax kind of kills it for me.

To alleviate the shipping just go to your local TRU to pick it up - it's the same price there.

I just picked up both. I traded in 4 old games I have not played in over a year (2 of them its been 2 years) I got $33 trade in so I did not have to pay for them at all. Great deal :)

If you enjoyed the Syphon Filter PSP's like me, go get Retribution.

Why not just buy Resistance Retribution at Amazon for $13.43 shipped? Just use a nonfeatured merchant. People already have here with good success.

Awesome! In for both!

I'll have to swing over to TRU tonight and see if they have them both at that price.
