Wondering the same thing myself since I ended up over-paying for a copy of Rune Factory Frontier for the Wii last year on Ebay. I totally forgot about the release and checked Amazon one day to see it was going for $85+ from market sellers! Jumped on Ebay and scooped a BIN copy for $70 only to have it come shrink-wrapped:bomb: Due to it being the first transaction under my account and not wanting to start off with bad feedback or something, I just ate it and threw it on the pile. A few months later I decided to expand my Wal-mart run to a 50 mile radius and found a store clearancing tons of games. After some digging, found 2 copies for $19.99 apiece (correctly y-sealed this time), so said what the heck and bought them both.
Needless to say, I ended up giving the shrink-wrapped copy to my son, but it still stung to have paid less for 2 good copies, than some re-wrapped garbage. Think I'm just going to press my luck this time and wait for some drops, keeping a close eye on inventory levels at various retailers.
that sucks. I hate that shrinkwrapped bs. Pisses me off as a collector. The thing is im noticing some real retail games are like that these days, mainly capcom DS games and the like, making it hard to tell if your getting screwed on ebay and sites like that. I really wish there was just a Y-fold standard across the board or something
Well, shit. I should have grabbed Rune factory when it was in my gold box a few weeks ago. Too damn late now. Hopefully it will show up in there again? @ Frontier
. Did it get a reprint? i see it cheaper on amazon now
I am not sure if this is a Japanese niche game, but amazon has
Fate/Extra Limited Edition up for preorder. It came up in my goldbox for 37.99. It says it is for the PSP.
ya, i was gonna go through them but it seems gamestop is the only one that gets a real pre-order bonus =(http://www.gamestop....9#bonusFeatures
they have some exclusive little art/fact book that comes with the game. Amazon doesn't seem to have it so i guess i have to order through gamestop. The really lame thing is that its ONLINE ONLY
Which is friggin bullshit. I gotta pay shipping and hope it doesn't arrive damaged. I dont get why i cant pre-order in store
