I don't know if it's an error or a reprint, but Amazon claims to have 999 available for $35, which beats the hell out of all the other prices I've seen online. It's not in stock yet, but it's worth a shot if you're interested in getting it. Amazon expects to get it in stock in two or three weeks. I checked it yesterday and many sellers were charging $70 and up. http://www.amazon.co..._pr_product_top
EDIT: Just read about the difference between a visual novel and an adventure game. This is definitely an adventure game. I can't edit the tags for some reason, though.
EDIT 2: It's been requested that I point out that the aksys store has the watch bundle available online for 36.99. http://www.aksysgame...s/nineninenine/ It includes a watch designed to look like the bracelets worn in 999. I feel like I should point out that the Amazon version does NOT include the watch.

Your tag description of the game isn't even correct.

Seriously...wow man.

Plenty of them at Gamestop around me for $35. Of course, you have to deal with Gamestop, but still, I dunno if this is a "deal".

Yeah, tons of these at Gamestops around me. I think the most disappointing part was not getting the watch from the pre-order. What a let down.

HAHAHA...I read the first post that Amazon has 999 available & thought it was referring to how many they had in stock...ah man it's been a long day... *goes off to eat dinner & pass out*

Amazon doesn't charge your card until an order ships right?

Employees for Aksys on NeoGaf confirmed that they needed to print more copies to keep up with the demand and that they'd be ready in early-mid January.

Only reason I haven't gotten this yet is the $35 pricetag. After being burnt by how terrible Lux-Pain was and seeing other visual novels drop so low I was hoping for a price drop on this. But it does sound interesting still... hopefully the reprint means it won't be too rare and get at least below $30.

It's my favorite DS game ever except for the Phoenix Wright 1 & 3 (It's better than 2, Apollo, and Edgeworth though). If you liked these games, or Hotel Dusk, do yourself a favor and get this. I can PROMISE you that you will enjoy every second of the game.

I stayed up many a night till 5-7am playing this game. Granted I typically didn't start playing until midnight, as the suspense has a better impact then.

Think it's a metal watch. I'd get it if they have it back in stock. (Though just the watch though, can't see myself buying three copies of the same game no matter how good it is)

Playing this game between 5 and 7 hours a night shouldn't take anyone many nights. ;)

999 was fun, but once you complete the six endings there is little to no replay value. Getting the true ending is nigh impossible without some type of guide. The game shouldn't take longer than 15 - 20 hours for all the endings.

Also, the translation came across a bit odd in some places; the cursing often felt forced.

Okay, those are my complaints. Otherwise the game was gripping, interesting, and did a fairly decent job of tying up the storyline.

Definitely a game to pick up if you have a DS.

I had a tough time finding a copy that was still sealed at Gamestop.

I finally found one about 2 weeks ago and was all set to buy it but my wife wouldn't let me pick up any games.

Turns out she had already found me a copy a few weeks before that and I got it for Christmas.

If you're still on the fence the website has a playable demo (it can be found on the link posted by Maniac Mansion)
