I think lots of people (myself included) saw new copies just sitting around at GS for a while and assumed it would be available or cheaper down the line. I did happen to grab a copy for myself along the way but I was in no rush at the time.
I also wasn't aware of the Operation: Rainfall thing. I imagine other folks were in a similar spot.
if you at all knew about this game and followed it even a little it would be next to impossible not hear about operation rainfall. also niche jrpgs tend to usually not go down from MSRP.
This is what I find stupid about this, how much time have you had to buy the game? Then all of a sudden it starts selling for more on fleabay and everybody wants one now. Don't blame anybody but yourself by not getting this fantastic game in a timely manner, didn't anyone else see this coming being a Gamestop exlcusive?
exactly if you at all remotely followed this game you knew it was going to be a low print and a gamestop exclusive. how dense does one have to be not to know this could end up rare and pricey.
I wanted this game from the beginning, but I didn't buy it BECAUSE it was a GS exclusive. I'm hoping for a Wii U remake or DL before the new game comes out, which judging by Nintendo and JRPGs in general could be a couple of years wait, so no rush.
your irrational hate for gamestop is the problem seriously can we all just stop riding the gamestop hate train???
