First time I'm ordering from Gamestop in years; never thought I'd see the day again... I'm sure this is will be a universal pre-release price-drop, or they'll cancel it. Even still, can't hurt to try!

I might get it especially since I enjoyed Crush on the psp.

Hmm, I've had my eye on this game but I wasn't too sure about it for $35. This is tempting, but I'm still not totally sold as I've heard the game can be frustrating at times. Still might jump on this deal though, nice find!

You're not kidding, I looked at both of them after reading that (and wondering what the heck this game is). They both look like some early 90's PC shareware games.

Loved the original Crush on the PSP. This looks way too bright and cheerful.

Still, for only $20, I'm tempted to give it a whirl.

Is this a remake of the PSP game for the 3DS or is it a new game?

It is a remake of the PSP game. If you want some hands on time before making a purchase, there is a demo available on the 3DS store. IMO, it isn't worth purchasing if you already played through the PSP version. It may be worth it for someone who has never played the game though.

This is more of a remake (probably same old puzzles). There's a demo on the Nintendo eshop. They got rid of the voice-overs, and it's all heavy text now (bad decision, as some of the sarcasm is gone). The psp version had a darker tone, and so they gave the main character a make over (more kid friendly).

Crush has always been good for the first few stages. However, as you progress everything becomes trial and error. Finding your way to the answer is always rewarding, but your feeling of accomplishment diminishes when you have to do too much guessing later on.

GS seems to be getting it a week later than other places, so maybe that has something to do with the deal.

I'm hoping for a price match from Amazon. Has anyone brought it to their attention?

Same here. I really don't want to go into Gamestop if I don't have to.

Hmmm. tried the Crush 3D demo and liked it.....but never having played the PSP version, torn between buying the PSP version on Amazon (under $11) or the 3DS version ($20). I think I like the "brighter" 3DS aesthetic a little more....but beyond that. What do y'all think? Which should I get?

Dan, if you want to try the PSP version, check PSN and download it. It's only $4.99 to buy the download.

Looks like Crush3D is now a Gamestop exclusive. That or Gamestop is now pretending getting the game a week late makes their version extra special. Whatever, I did enjoy the demo something fierce, and knocking the price to $19.99 hits a sweet-enough spot for me.

It's still available on Amazon and Best Buy tomorrow, according to their sites (Amazon told me they weren't price matching, though - Maybe BB will).

For God's sake don't choose in-store pick-up. The system is still a bit buggy and you can end up being blacklisted by them, which is a real hassle to get fixed.

Here's the link where it claims it is a Gamestop exclusive. Perhaps Gamestop is just insane?

That or they are in denial that Amazon exists. In any case, GameStop has the lowest price. Gosh, those were 5 words I never thought I'd say together.

Maybe it means "exclusive price" and they're being clever with their wording.

Sucks that they've actually got the lowest price for a game BUT they're inexplicably getting it a week later than every other retailer.

Just pre-ordered the game yesterday at GS. I tried the demo and it was pretty good. Not a bad price for a new release.

Yeah, every Best Buy I searched had it listed as "unavailable". Sounds like Gamestop somehow managed to make this an exclusive ONE DAY before the release date. Ridiculous. I played the demo a couple nights ago, and it wasn't that impressive, so I'm out on this one.

Yeah, I wasn't blown away by the demo. Think I'll pass. Still have MGS to play through and Kid Icarus comes out in a few weeks.
