Now I just need a deal for Ninja Storm Generations.

Nice deal. I expect a pretty low print run on this game since Namco can't market so it should be worth it.

Tempting, but I think reserving it at Gamestop and getting the exclusive costume DLC might be a better choice since it will absolutely never be released on PSN in the US (stated by Namco-Bandai on their Facebook page).

Couldn't agree more with you on Namco's marketing of Tales in the US. Over the years friends have borrowed various Tales games from me and they always ask me: "These games are pretty fun, how come I've never heard of this series before?"

I probably would've seen it in my email since I subscribe to the newegg ads, but nonetheless a big thanks to you sir. I really didn't want to pay full price for this game not when I want Mass Effect 3 and Ninja Storm Generations in the same month (although I might wait a bit on that last one.)

Was hoping they would do this deal. By the time you factor in gas and tax you easily save $20. As much as I would want the DLC... I don't think it will affect the game without it or will I really miss it, so I will pass on Gamestop. Go Newegg!!

It's Namco marketing in general... they're right up there with SEGA in just dropping games and people following the game not even knowing it came out.

Can a pre-order go OOS or is there a limit on how many orders they plan to take?

I say do it now because it could end up like Hyperdimension Neptunia 2 which stopped taking preorders due to over demand (at least the CE did).

This is a great price, but I also feel that the exclusive DLC from GameStop that has been said to never be releasing normally is more worth it at this point, but if you don't want that I'd definitely recommend jumping in at this price, the more people that get this the better chance of us seeing future Tales games!

Yeah, the DLC from Gamestop is stopping me from going through Newegg.

I'm afraid a low print/hard to find means that even used it'll be 30-40, at least, for a while so this is a great deal! Thanks OP!

Ugh, I've been anticipating this game for a couple years now, I haven't had a chance to play my copy of Tales of the Abyss yet, and with my work schedule about to get extremely hectic for the next 7 months, I know I wouldn't get to this til next Winter, so I planned on picking this up at a later date (figuring it should be around $30 by then)

Your guys' thoughts on that? Do you think I'll be out of luck and it'll be out of print or something? I know Vesperia never got Greatest Hits and you can still find it no problem.

I'm new to Tales games, is there a reason not to wait for a lower price after release?

Because most Tales games don't ever really drop in price and become hard to find. A used copy of "Tales of the Abyss" for PS2 runs for about $45 at Gamestop. Tales of Vesperia is the only exception to this and that's because Microsoft financed most of the localization.

They aren't. The dynamic theme you get is half-assed (it's just 3 different wallpapers that randomly alternate) and the costumes look tacky and reference a game that was never and will never be released here. The only reason why I'm not doing this deal is because I traded in MW3 for $30 so I'm getting this game for around $30 + tax.

Agh you beat me to it OP! Thanks for the post though, glad more people can save. I'm a diehard Tales Fan and I'll gladly miss out on some alternate preorder costumes so I don't have to give any money to the fat greedy corporate pig known as Gamestop.
