I'm curious as to which direction this will go in myself. In retrospect, I'm glad I didnt get it though. Barely took me 6 days to platinum the game itself

The game still seems to be available at Best Buy and Gamestop. Worth jumping on it now?

It's never about the length in my book. It's about the enjoyment I had throughout the journey. :) Vanquish was a short run too (although the platinum took me some time) and if I had the opportunity to get some swag that would remind me of that experience, I'd dive right on it!

Depends on the game for me. If its something I'm hyped for, I'd gladly throw out the extra for the C.E, this one really wasn't on my radar. Was going to pass it up till I lucked out and found a used copy the day after release.

Sorry, but this will be worth less than MSRP within a month.


and why do you think that when the price has only been going up?

it is not going to go down, but i doubt it will skyrocket in price either. so unless you are planning to buy it for the collectors purpose. I doubt you will make a huge profit with reselling. It could very well end up selling out tho, before it finally gets a price drop.

Look at the ones that have sold in the last few days on Ebay. There are several near or under $150, and even the ones up to $170 are still a loss for the seller.



the cheapest on ebay right now is $192, which is more than $150 which is well ABOVE MSRP

cheapest on amazon is $250

Those dwarf geckos are amazing. Wish I imported that, but I was under the impression the Konami store didn't ship out of Japan.

And yes, that's the exact same art-booklet that gamestop handed out.

Great news on the artbook. Here is where I got mine. It's still in stock, and it's really quite cheap--all things considered, at least.

ordered!

Holy shit! Yes!

Edit: Shipping from this place blows though. 25 for the LE is fine. More than happy to pay that for MGR. But adding a single game in a standard sleeve is 25 as well.

Anybody know a decent place to order Okami HD? With shipping this one turns out to 56USD.

The awesome packaging, the artbook, the little figures included--I think they're lame, but that's just me--and an exclusive steelbook. The UK edition has by far the least content of any of them. It's just the figure.

UK edition comes with a steelbook with the soundtrack as well, if I recall correctly. And if you preordered it, you would have gotten another steelbook as a bonus.

And these guys grow on you fast.

It definitely doesn't come with a steelbook. I also didn't see the soundtrack in the unboxing I watched, but I could have missed that.

Is the JP edition limited?

I already have the NA edition with lamp, and the UK edition is arriving next week from zavvi, which is limited to 25,000 I believe. Now I'm contemplating on getting the JP edition, but the only unique thing I see is the small gekko figures, which are very small...

Yeah, it's sold out at most places. The packaging is awesome--was a big plus for me--and is completely different from the others. The steelbook included is also exclusive. It's similar to some of the other 4 steelbooks, but it is a 5th variant.

That's fine, but in the last few days, 3 of them have sold below MSRP, and several more were just above it. There were also buyouts on higher priced ones.

I didn't say they would all instantly be changed to a lower price on Ebay buyouts, I said they would be worth less then MSRP within a month. I'm not sure why that's hard to believe for anyone, there isn't anything particularly special about this LE. I'm just saying that this would be lucky to even hold its value.

Edit: Also, $192? There are tons of buyouts from $168-180. Like dozens. And that doesn't even account for how many copies are on bid, which is where all the below MSRP ones are coming from. Obviously nobody is going to have a BIN for cheaper than MSRP dude.


lol what do you mean "nobody will have a BIN cheaper than MSRP?" You just said in your last post that you guarantee it will be below MSRP within a month. You're just contradicting yourself.

They are in the $170-$190 range. And not "tons" There are only 3 listings below $190

You are so cocky that it will be below MSRP in a month, all I said is "why do you think that?" Something that is in stock everywhere yes that will most likely be under MSRP in a month, however this game is out of stock on amazon and WELL ABOVE MSRP on ebay and on amazon. It is HIGHLY LIKELY that it will NOT be below MSRP in the next month.

When stores stop selling things, they go up in price.

You're fighting a losing battle. Flow is dense as Fuck, and eager to argue. Might as well back down with logic, it's not gonna work. :D

I'm just glad I got a copy with a working lamp that wasn't broken. Great game too.
