To keep this in perspective as far as value. The market is flooded right now, on Amazon there are 40 listings at least from re-sellers.

Now think about it. 40 copies out of 10,000.

I would still say this is rare and valuable. Price has fallen a little due to some sellers panicking and some brief restocks on Amazon and GS but give it even a few weeks when Christmas comes around and the price is likely to go up. For us collectors, a sealed copy in a year or two will likely be worth 2-3 times what we paid at least.

Lol, wonder if flippers/resellers are trying to buy them all up to keep values somewhat high.

Either way, I opened mine the moment I got it, love the Hard Shell and Pouch.


Ya, I love the hard shell and pouch as well.

I think the copies that are popping up are coming from canceled orders sliding back into inventory.

After the first two runs like these, it should be sold out completely.

But then again, they're selling the Vita screen cover separately so who knows maybe they'll also sell the hard shell and pouch separately too which would lower the value of the premium edition.

Amazon does this with all collector's editions that sell out.. They keep extra in case of mistakes and then if there are no problems they sell them off.

and ofcourse everytime they do this people start talking about how the game is being reprinted or isn't rare..

Vintage gaming is vintage gaming. Once the PS4 and 720 arrive, do you think the value will drop for the Uncharted 2 LE? Or the Dead Space LE? Their prices will only continue to rise once the systems are no longer around in the same way prices are high still for rare Sega CD, 2600 or Vectrex games.

If the Vita dies tomorrow, it will soon get hacked and even more users will begin to use it, so I really can't see a numbered LE ever dropping in value, unless it isn't really limited, and then prices will for sure fall, but considering how long other regions have to wait for this game, and considering no other english LE will be released, I'm sure this title will be bullet proof.



there was a winning post for the ps2 that fetched over 100 or 200 back in the day.. i think its like 20 now

Actually, they don't. Amazon simply ends up with extras because people's payments don't go through or they otherwise get caught in transit between warehouses. If your copy was damaged or stolen in transit, Amazon would have simply issued a refund. Some retailers do actually maintain a damage and error reserve. Amazon does not and it's simply luck if they happen to have leftovers on something that's sold out.

Yep and the Uncharted LE and Dead Space LE were limited to 1000 units or less and in the case of the Uncharted 2 LE, couldn't even be purchased by consumers and had to be won. This is a niche game with 10K copies out there on a niche system. No way this is a $200-$300 item a few years from now. Maybe $100-$120, but as someone who has collected games for 20+ years, I can say with certainty values don't grow that quickly on modern games with very, very few exceptions. I think you fail to appreciate how many sealed copies of this out of the 10K there still are. Very few people in this thread even opened theirs.

Agreed, its not going anywhere near 200$ in the future anytime soon lol. Imo i dont think this is going to be too rare. . .

That's not true vigilante. Maybe in this case where supplies are limited but I got Persona 4 Arena from there for 35.96 when it was still 60 dollars every where else. It just takes them time to get the stock in to fulfill all the orders. In fact I've never placed an order with them that I didn't receive.

And like Gamestop, there appears to be a 3 qty limit per account.



I often buy for people every bluray Tuesday but LE things should be one per person.

You really can't compare Dragon Ball to Persona, Dragon Ball has a way bigger following.

It appears to be hit or miss though; trying to add it to your cart usually results in an error.

But I've tried a couple times today and finally managed to snag one 10 minutes ago.

Same here. Mine's immaculate. I'm ashamed to say this, but I'm tempted not to open it and just buy a regular version to play. Dammit, when did I become the kid who doesn't open his Star Wars figures?
