This game has gotten pretty rare, and new copies were going to cost you around $100 or more. The seller MOST_WANTED put up some new, cheap copies!

amazon.com/gp/product/B003UI518U/ref=olp_product_details?ie=UTF8&me=&seller=

The difference is shipping is free on eBay. Sorry, cannot post links yet. :(

EDIT: eBay link not working. Just search "Rune Factory 3" and find the $34.90 price listing.

EDIT 2: Rune Factory 2 is $34.90 on Amazon (after shipping) and $29.90 on eBay from the same seller.

Didnt realize they were OOP.

Also figures the ONE store I don't want to go to is the store that has all 3 games used.

Not really interested, but I'm betting this is signs of a reprint too.

They're back in stock (currently has 198). Rune Factory 1 & 2 are also in stock.

I hope these are legit, I need 1 & 3. But I've received multiple counterfiets (though they were well done) and re-seals from Most Wanted in the past, on both Amazon and eBay.

I think this is a sign that the games are being reprinted. This isn't the first time I've seen Most Wanted dump a huge number of games and then that game subsequently gets a reprint.

Thanks OP. I picked up Rune Factory 2 to complete my collection. What kills me is that I did have this game prior but traded it in to Best Buy as the game was cheap everywhere. I remember seeing this game at Costco too for cheap, but left it behind then (they had a varied selection of DS game a few years ago around Christmas). Lesson learned ;)

yeah, i'm always weary of purchasing any new games from them or any other similar big game seller on amazon to be honest. it's actually prevented me from making a couple purchases recently.

What were the giveaways that your copies were re-sealed or counterfeits?

Natsume posted on their twitter that these aren't reprints. Don't know why the seller has so many.

Who knows if they are legit. If you buy it you don't want to open it and you don't know if there is a game inside or not.

How can you tell if they are resealed?

Metal detector or watching the x-ray monitor as they run the game through at an TSA airport security point. I guess a security tag with a metal strip might throw off metal detector on false positives.

Well, if that's not a warning sign, I don't know what is.

you don't have to open it to see if there's a game inside.. you can always weigh it and compare. Although resealed games are usually easy to spot without opening.

i've bought games for a few years and i've placed hundreds of orders with "Most Wanted" on amazon and i've never had a bad experience of a resealed game with them. I've had many bad experience with other sellers trying to reseal used games but never with Most Wanted. I always pick them if it's between other amazon sellers.

There is a first time for everything though, I bought a few, so we'll see what happens.

I'm surprised Vinny has reported that he received bootleg merchandise from Most Wanted... They have an extremely good track record on Amazon.

Maybe they got these games from some sort of wholesale distributor trying to liquidate in the same fashion that Ross gets there stuff. I've always wondered how some of these online sellers are able to sell the games the way they do.
