You can even make a bit of profit as the current trade in value at Amazon.com is $22.50

Its been 17.99 used for awhile but I think the 19$ new is recent. Good game for this price.
Your right.. i think its been 19 for maybe the last two weeks. I picked up the last brand new copy from the GS near me.... looked like it was selling out quick in the areas near me though.

If anyone doesn't want any gutted copies, you could go to Bestbuy and get a pricematch
Well, that's really YMMV. BestBuy doesn't always price-match that readily...at least at the ones near me. They will call around to every Gamestop in the area to confirm that they do not have a new ungutted copy before they'll pricematch. Given how GS stores are, that's practically impossible.
Also, great game. Excellent price. But platinum for this game is downright insane. Not necessarily hard...just extremely time consuming. I once read somewhere that it'll take you around 500 hours to plat it.

I'm 34 years old, and damned it, I want my freaking half-undressed anime chick.
In for 12 to afford a dozen roses for my body pillow Kimiko.

what is amazon's support email? maybe i'll send them one to see if they'll match it.

I just... can't bring myself to buy this game at any price. Star Ocean 3's disc 1 was magical. It was sooo good... easily the best game I played at the time... then it asked me to insert Disc 2. How a game can take such a nose dive so drastically and so fast is still beyond me... all I know is it broke my heart. Never beat it, and don't think I ever will. (already been years)
Feel the same. Played this on 360 and frankly hated it; IMHO, one of the worst JRPGs this generation (and I've played a whole bunch of them).
Voice acting and the writing/story are just downright awful.

I also bought this on Amazon the day it was $29.99. Still buried in the drawer under Neir $19 at Kmart and White Knight Chronicles $12.48 at Target. I'm 30 hours - maybe half? - way into Arc Rise Fantasia with Epic Mickey under the tree in 2 days. I printed out a Return shipping label for Star Ocean to ship it back to Amazon but realized after the $5 shipping fee (claimed on Amazon's site) it's $25 so too much work to save $5. Plus my wife reminded me I bought it with trade-in credit from Enslaved and New Super Mario Bros. Wii so it's all under the bridge at this point. Glad to hear it's good though, and I don't care about platinum, barely got time to play anything as it is, just signed up for Netflix and started Torchwood.
i had a sealed copy i got from amazon on bf for 29.99 and then returned it when gs did the price drop (i found 1 sealed copy by my house). amazon sent me a prepaid shipping label and its free cuz i told them it was an unwanted xmas gift. on my refund they deducted 4.98 for shipping, so i promptly contacted cs via chat and they refunded me the 4.98 immediately. doesn't hurt to ask
