It was mentioned in the psp forums that this was probably reprinted. Ebay was flooded (relatively) with new copies starting about a week ago, plus it was available from other retailers (such as on preorder at Best Buy with a release date of 4/17) and Amazon through other stores.

If it was indeed reprinted, hopefully it means they will get to work on a port of Disgaea 2 for psp after they port AoD to the DS.

Is $29.99 an universal price drop?

I doubt it.

Most places don't / won't carry it anymore (except an eTailer similar to GQD).

Some people have suggested a reprint. It's possible there was excess inventory at the manufacturer, which was bought up by other distributors.

I think a lot of people bought the Amazon.com copies. Now, these people are listing these up at various places like eBay. The price should fall for a while, so you may want to check out other sources for a copy.

So tempted b/c of all the praise this series gets; but, other than Jeane D'Arc, I haven't spent much time with this genre since Shining Force II on the SEGA Genesis. Would this game be too difficult for me to enjoy it?

Wasn't SFII epic? They've infused a lot of depth in the genre since then. FFT and Disgaea are both heralded, but they're not as accessible as SF was for its time (nor Jeanne for the current period). Basically, if you have a solid sense of patience, they're probably more rewarding, but the learning curve is definitely steeper. Disgaea's pretty funny, especially if you're an anime fan. And FFT pretty epic. But even I've only played bits and pieces before I get overwhelmed. Your call.

29.99 is universal...i saw it for that price at GS and Walmart. The cool thing about waiting for this one is that I'm only paying $9.99. The first order they cancelled after 3 weeks by mistake, I got $10 off...and then DoYa had that $10 for recommending businesses, and that went there...so, $10 for a great game = awesome

and thank freaking god, it's being prepared to ship after waiting since February!

Is this a good port? I never played the PS2 version.

I doubt they'll reprint since they're coming out with it again on the DS later this year.

Thanks a ton for your thoughts--they've just saved me $30 on the point about being patient, because I am not.

Yeah, me too. I've disliked every Final Fantasy Tactics game I've played (always quit within a few hours), and most of these games are too hard for me.

Good to hear Jeane D'Arc isn't like that. I might pick it up now that it's $20 at Toy's R Us.

I loved Shining Force 2 (and Dragon Force was AWESOME). Some other games you might like are Vandal Hearts 1 on the Playstation 1 if you can find it, and the Gamecube Fire Emblem (I haven't played the Wii one yet and it's supposed to be WAY harder and got much worse reviews because of that). Vandal Hearts 1 I think almost anyone that liked Shining Force 2 would like.

I hate these games where you've got to reload thousands of times and memorize people's birth date and favorite food or whatever :lol:

The Sunnyvale Frys received three copies of Disgaea PSP and they were both priced at $29.99, so I can verify that this are not just amazon.com prices. All three copies were gone by the end of the weekend.
