How long do you guys figure before we see a price cut for this title. I'd like to pick it up but 59 is a bit much considering the downward price pressure these days.

Well, the price history on Vesperia is a good thing to note. IIRC it ran something like:
It released at full price, and mostly soldout. There were a handful of sales it could be had at, like the usual Bestbuy 10% off sales and such. When soldout the used market dipped down to maybe $40-$50, and stuck there. After a long time of being soldout Namdai gave into the fan demand and tossed out a second printing @ $20, at which point the used value naturally tanked.

So yeah, YMMV on Namdai actually tossing out reprints. If you want a new copy it's a gamble to wait for a signifigant price cut, it may never come.

I feel bad waiting to a price drop this game; JRPGs are getting slammed these days and I'd love to support them mope enthusiastically. Alas, I'm super poor so I gotta cheap out on this. I'm holding out till the 20 mark myself.

I think the newegg $48 pre-order deal was pretty bitchin'. It's too bad you missed out on that.

Check out my youtube channel! I do video game collection updates, unboxings, final impressions, and intelligent game industry commentary.  Expect lots of collector's editions, as well as steelbooks from all over the world! :D

I was surprised to see Graces f and Abyss 3DS at Walmart. Mainly because the website didn't list Walmart as a retailer. But then again, I also saw Vesperia at Walmart back then.

I'm going to blame you guys if we don't get Xilla now! If their is one game series to not cheap out on it's Tales...

Given how low the print run was on this you might honestly be better off not waiting.

We get so few of the Tales games localized that I'm giving them my money just so the others can see the light of day in the West.

I was trying to wait for at least a small discount, but it showed up in my Amazon quick picks for $56.xx so I just bit the bullet and ordered it.

It's the first Tales game I've played and I'm loving it so far.

Also Bandai Namco has lost all their tales love for me when they didn't release the bulk of their PS2 releases and are picky choosy and what Tales games come here that no matter how well they sell or are reviewed (symphonia) the series won't be released in its full in english.

I am bitter that I can't play Tales of Destiny Remake and Tales of Destiny 2 among many others.

So I'll grab it when it's 40 or less.

symphonia i heard was cause of the fact that the script belongs to nintendo and they definitely don't want to have to redo the script just so they can do the ps2 port.

the other ps2 tales were probably related to SCEA's fairly restrictive rules on what games would be localized or not.

You could have gotten it for $40 on day one by preordering at gamestop and selling the DLC code for $25

I'm planning to sell my copy when this one arrives. At the very least you'll offset some of the price. I figure I can get at least $40 out of it.

Hmmm. I've never sold any of my games before. I get attached to objects, I don't think I could sell it lol. It's only a matter of time until I give in and order the special edition, but I don't know from which online shop yet.

It's also on zavvi for £34.85 + £0.99 shipping, which comes out to around $58. I've heard mixed reports about their packaging on limited editions, though.

Last time I ordered the Demon Souls Phantom Edition off of them and the box came in a bubble mailer and dinged around the edges. Just a heads up.

I received a unique £3 off £30 code from The Hut that worked on Tales of Graces f. Check your emails, as I believe the 10% off codes they sometimes send don't work on preorders.

Does Zavvi charge once an item ships or do they charge right after you made your order? Thanks in advance.
