Title says it all. Game will be released on March 29, 2011.

New MSRP or great deal ??

Either way, I pre-ordered with release-date delivery (free with Prime). Non-prime members still get free Super-saver shipping.

Can't wait to play this even though it comes out with the 3DS :)

edit: now says "In stock on March 21, 2011"

I loved the first PE and hated the second. Don't know if that has any bearing on the 3rd birthday but I will wait until it's $20 or less.

Sadly I have heard terribly things about the story. Which is a shame since I really liked the first two. I would wait for the English reviews on this one folks.

Gamestop and Walmart still list it for $39.99. It's why I ordered. You can always cancel later on.

I wish Square-Enix would just release their games on PSN already. I don't wanna buy any more UMDs, since the NGP won't play them.

Nope. No solid date for 3rd Birthday yet.

Also for anyone interested in the Limited Edition Import:

I have heard no confirm on that release date; it's previous Amazon listing was March 31 @ $39.99.

Thanks for the heads-up OP, I've been keeping close watch on this listing. Pre-ordered.

Most of their recent games, minus Kingdom Hearts, are available on PSN. There's issues with Disney as to why Kingdom Hearts isn't.

I'm confused by this and Duodecim both being $30 brand new. I'm wondering if this is some sort of early adopter thing by Squenix, or a new standard due to PSP "being on the way out". (IE with NGP due out this year)

Either way, highly tempted to pre-order and secure at this price. Thanks for the heads up OP!

Personally, I will probably jump at the sound of skeleton hooves and distant screaming for the rest of my life.

I think my wallet made a shrieking sound and scurried off into a dark corner, once I pulled up the Steam page.

  • Artbook (48 pages)
  • CD

    Mini-Soundtrack CD
  • exclusive DLC costume for Dissidia 012
Just like the Tactics Ogre one, which does have a picture. I haven't seen a picture of the 3rd Birthday LE yet.

I am guessing it will be similar to this:

Well, both Lords of Arcana and Tactics Ogre are still $40, so it could just be that they are trying to encourage people to buy all four now rather than buying just one or two of the games and waiting for the others to drop in price.

Will PSP games bought via PSN work on the NGP (PSP2)? I was under the impression that there would be no backward compatibility whatsoever.

I've perused the GameFAQs forums on this game after the Japanese release to get a sense of whether the game turned out well. From my impression, the story sucks, gameplay is above-average, and its main draw is the fanservice. Sadly, as an ex-Squaresoft fan who liked the original PE, I am still interested. Just like how I am interested in FFXIII-2 despite thinking FFXIII was one of the worst "big" games of last year.

It's working on me at least.

NGP will be able to play any PSP games downloaded off of PSN. At least that was the understanding I have from the different reports.

My only concern now is the one shared with many CAG peeps. Do I buy 3rd Birthday, Duodecim, (as well as) Persona 3 Portable and Phantom Brave? Sure I could buy em as UMDs for collecting and buy them again on PSN, or I could be halfway smart and just buy em directly on PSN from the getgo. Decisions, decisions. :cry:

(Also, i would be much more okay with PSN downloads only if someone would get the Fuck to putting Valkyrie Profile Lenneth on PSN. >=| )

Personally, I will probably jump at the sound of skeleton hooves and distant screaming for the rest of my life.

I'd be all over this... but with the PSP2 announcment, I honestly can't bring myself to buy any UMD games since they're basically going to be obsolete.

I'm not sure if I'm happy people seem to be thinking this way or not. On one hand I hope this makes companies price their games lower so I can buy more, on the other hand I'm worried it might make some companies start releasing what's left of the PSP games as DD only titles. I'm not buying overpriced DD games. I'm just going to have to accept that the NGP is not backwards compatible as far as I'm concerned.

I honestly never understand how people make this leap. The PSP2/NGP probably won't even launch until November or so. That's eight months after this game is tentatively scheduled for release. Are you planning on throwing your PSP and all your UMDs away the day the PSP2 comes out?

The code is in the game case on a small piece of paper. So you would still get it probably.

No, but many may be planning on selling/trading in their PSP and UMDs to be able to afford a NGP.

I'm definitely the same, backing off on physical UMDs for now. I do not plan on carrying around two portables when I want to play my library when the NGP comes out, I want it all in one. 8-)
