Isn't it cheaper using Newegg's $10 promotion? Just checked my Newegg order status, I got it for $29.99...

It's still listed at 39.99 on both Amazon and Newegg, so as of right now 29.99 is a better price (I have it preordered at that price too, from Newegg with the promo code). Looking forward to this game, we're lucky to have it released in North America!!!

Any new promos to get $10 off? I finally got word that is new job is a go and I had to hold off until I knew if was finalized before doing a pre-order for this. And as I see the offer is now expired.

So I'd appreciate any help otherwise I'll be waiting for an eventual discount (sadly, as I'd like to support the release) but I'm not paying $40 for a game I already own on the DC already just to have it on PS3, $30 yes, full price no. :booty:

MSRP is $30 but it was only announced a day or so ago. Give it a few days and New Egg and Amazon will adjust the price accordingly.

Crazy, I used to own the DC deluxe version that went for $150-200 on Ebay. Im amazed this got localized!

Thanks Thrinn! Updated OP thread title with new price (Amazon only right now, Newegg is still 39.99) and added screenshots of Under Defeat HD as well. Got this preordered from NewEgg for $30 anyway with a $10 off code, I doubt Newegg will bump it lower, but thats OK. I really want to support RSG on this release, and $30 is a great price for this game!

The retail package also includes an art book, soundtrack, and all the DLC produced since the game's Japanese release. It's going to be a $30 PSN title, too.

What's special about the game itself tho?

Will this be something you can turn a profit on then?

Unlikely. It looks like the art book is going to be a pamphlet inside the regular PS3 case along with the soundtrack. It's nice they are including these items for the price, but it's hardly an elaborate collector's edition.

If it's anything like what Raiden IV did then it could just be a link to a .pdf file for you to download.

Product Features

The most requested remake in G.rev?s library

Regarded within the shmup community as one of the all-time classic games

The original Dreamcast version pushed the console to the limit, becoming one of its best selling games

Both game and developer have a great reputation within the large shmup community




I think chunlirocks answered your question quite well. However, even though shmups in North America may drop low in price at some point (like Akai Katana), they sometimes come way back up. Raiden Fighters Aces and Raiden IV are a few great examples; I bought these as low as $12.50, but both are way back up on Ebay (brand new sealed). No way to know about Under Defeat, but most people buy it to support he developers and enjoy the game. Maybe an extra copy or two for collectability doesn't hurt. ;)

And any of the DC shmups, kept their price or went way up, even 2nd tier stuff like Trizeal, Border Down is still fairly expensive (last time I checked) and some of the CPS2 shmups from Capcom go for crazy prices as well.

There is a strong shmup community in the US that buy pretty much anything and the main thing that stops casual buyers from getting on board is the prices at launch. (edit: just looked at the comments at the PS Blog and I was right on the money, biggest gripe right now is price, one guy even went as far as calling it a CASUAL game, rolf, wtf, it's so far from that it's not even funny, whadda idiot)

Speaking of which....

According to the PS Blog the MSRP has been reduced to $29.99.

:lol:

Seems like my procrastination paid off, plus when they had the sale, I didn't have any money, so off to Amazon now to pre-order my copy at the price I was looking for. ;)

$30 is a fantastic price for this game. Speaking of which, Newegg just lowered their price to 29.99 as well, will update OP. Looking forward to this highly rated shmup in N.A.! (Now where is the 360 version?!?! :cry:)

Anybody know if this means that Newegg will drop the price for previously made pre-orders? I pre-ordered it when it was $39.99.

Generally you need to cancel and reorder since NewEgg doesn't seem to automatically update their pricing on existing orders.

As bojay1997 said, I think you need to cancel and preorder. See this link:

http://help.newegg.c...price guarantee

EDIT: LordVila stated that NewEgg WILL adjust your price according to their "Low Price Guarantee", so you should be OK. I think they should have clarified this in the FAQ about "price guarantee", its a little confusing.

I think there is a difference between a price match/price guarantee and a Low Price Guarantee. Taken from the Under Defeat page on Newegg:

Low Price Guarantee
Newegg will monitor your purchase for any price decreases and will honor the final Sales Order price of the item if it is lower than the price at pre-order. Newegg will not honor any other lower amount before that time.

FYI, I've looked around a bit, and it seems that Under Defeat HD (PS3) may be an Amazon exclusive. Even though I preordered a copy from Newegg, it never shipped, and it now shows "DISCONTINUED" on their website:

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16879797001

Gamestop does not carry this game, nor do Best Buy or WalMart. Amazon has plenty in stock, and I have one coming from there anyway. But if you ordered from Newegg, it doesn't look good.

Also, if only Amazon ever carries it, there is a possibility it will be a bit more rare. Not widely distributed, no brick & mortar, and we're not sure what quantity was printed.

My copy from Amazon is in transit, I expect it in the next day or two. Anyone who gets theirs, please post your impressions.

EDIT: XBox 360 version is out in EU, and its region-locked; won't play on N.A. 360s. :cry:

I got my copy from Amazon last week. I pushed it in front of the backlog since I've never played the series. I'm loving this game there are some slow downs in gameplay but I can look past them. Glad I picked up this series cause shoot em ups are one of my favorites.

Also looks like an easy platinum just requires 6 playthroughs with other trophies you will get from playing.

I also got mine, last week, and fired it up this morning and had a lot of fun with it. I'll be back on tonight to blow more stuff up. :bouncy:

I just looked and Deep Discount also have it for sale even though Yen Hau posted that it is exclusively available through Amazon. You can see the post, from the US PS Blog, here.
