They still have copies of Contra Shattered Soldier and Suikoden III? I haven't seen those new in nearly 10 years.

Yeah, the list is pretty crazy. LoS LE was pretty rare to begin with, kinda surprised to see they are offering either version. I already own the LE game, but I wouldn't mind having another one just cause my slipcover is slightly cracked.

Guess we'll see what happens, besides I traded in this game waaay back in May lol, so no big deal for me.

Lol yeah, I feel bad just going in and bitching about it then at the end saying "So.. free game?". So I just ended up bitching about it, I'll see if they send me an e-mail with a list of what they offer and go from there.

Lol so um.. this is what I got, must say that was a pretty fast reply though:

[FONT="]Dear Sir,[/FONT]

[FONT="]Thank you for contacting Konami Customer Support. We’re deeply apologetic for the obvious inconvenience and frustration this has caused you.[/FONT][FONT="] Unfortunately due to technical constraints we simply will be unable to patch the XBOX 360 version. The PS3 version was prioritized as it appeared to have the worst of any possible issues, and the Xbox 360 version contains fewer technical issues, and the remaining ones we are unfortunately unable to address.[/FONT]

How long did it take to get a response and did they offer you a game or was that the entire msg?

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

That was the entire message, so I'm unsure how to throw them the REAL question, hah.

I sent them a e-mail practically like 10 minutes ago, and received that e-mail like a few minutes afterwards.

No point in not doing so, either. Give it a try!

who saves receipts? that's unfair!


I guess you do starting now! 8-) Seriously though, just take your receipts, fold them and put them in the case behind the booklet. I do that and it makes it super easy to price match, etc.

It seems like it since they are doing this. I guess there is something really bugged in the code for the 360 that would cost more time and effort.

Even if you do not like anything on this list, how can you not get CastleVania LOS: Limited Edition for the PS3 and try to make money by selling it? That game is OOS everywhere and the PS3 is the rarer find between the two console versions. With two new games announced in that LOS series, the demand for brand new sealed copies on Amazon and eBay still sell for MSRP or more which starts at $80. So you could conceivably sell this and get MORE than what you paid for SH: HD Collection, but you should do the traditional auction over a set price. Just look online if you need proof of the completed sales.

Exactly, but at the same time it's what is so absurd. How the heck do they have such rare games still available? Doesn't make sense to me, like I said, the LE was pretty rare to begin with so I just find it hard to believe they would actually still have sealed copies still chilling around in their warehouse or w/e.

Not doubting the OP, infact thanks for posting this! But has anyone else gotten an e-mail besides me? For all we know this could be YMMV, or maybe I missed a certain key phrase in my e-mail? OP could you enlighten us?

No.

I don't get the decision to not have a GameCube disc reader on the system. Is it just to resell GCN games as eShop downloads later? Is it to keep the cost down? I can't imagine adding GameCube BC would cost a lot of money.

Ah, good to know. I know a patch came out for the PS3 version, but I thought that was because the PS3 version was that much worse than the 360 version and the patch made the PS3 on par with the 360 version.

Did the PS3 patch fix all/most of the issues or is it still glaringly unfinished/bugged? I was on the lookout for a cheap 360 version, but I suppose PS3 is the way to go now.


From what I understand, the game is okay now. No framerate issues, no missing sound files and no graphic errors. The patch apparently is around 500MB and adds the missing files.

This is a video with some of the glitches:

From the sound of it it may be ymmv. I can only speak for myself but all I did was send an email saying that I've been waiting to play the game until the patch was released and now that they announced that there would be no patch forthcoming what do they plan to do to make amends?

They responded by apologizing and then asked where I purchased it and if I still had the receipt. After I responded, they sent me a second email with the list of games I posted. Maybe they are out of free games or just changed the policy but that's how it went down for me.
