I'll have to purchase two copies. One to keep and one two keep sealed along with Xenoblade and Last Story. Hopefully they are worth some good change one day, even if it is a long time from now.

They wont, three mediocre RPG's with each one being worse than the last one will not skyrocket in price.

Quality of a game has little to do with rarity...

I haven't heard great things about the other two but Xenoblade is supposed to be good. Giantbombs quick look of it pretty much says as much as well.

Have you seen the price of Xenoblade lately on Amazon?

Price doesn't denote value, there's a reason all those copies are sitting there not purchased.

Xenoblade isn't bad, it's in the "you might like this if you're part of a small section of people who like these things that other people normally don't"

Last Story and PT don't have that same draw

Xenoblade was a fantastic JRPG. I can't personally speak for the other two.

They are pretty good RPGs. Some of the best this gen. Maybe two of the top 5 this gen in Xenoblade and The Last Story.

I doubt most RPG fans would put TLS in the top 5 of this generation.

Maybe not, but that doesn't mean it is mediocre either. I think there are a lot of great RPGs this gen.

Because August already mentioned that he's getting that game day 1 regardless.

What's so freaking hard about understanding that games like Gears of War, BioShock, etc. get complete editions/game of the year editions 6 months to a year after they are released, and can be found for $20? Are people so dense on this board as to not realize this?

Simply put, only a fool buys those types of games at $60.


No GotY edition for Gears 3, any Assassin's Creed game (at retail,) Dragon Age 2, Mass Effect 2/3, Alan Wake, etc. Bioshock didn't get one until 3 years after Bioshock 2
& 5.5 years after Bioshock 1.

GotY editions aren't a guarantee, especially if its an EA or Ubisoft title.

Pre-ordered on Amazon! It showed up in my goldbox! I wish Target would carry this game though cause I can get 14.5% off there.

i agree with you. Not all games get GOTY. Also, why is the other poster calling people fools? Why does he care if people purchase at $60+? Sure some limited editions isnt rare, but some are pretty cool. (skyrim, assassin creed, etc.)

I saw people claiming they were waiting on GOTY for Darksiders 2. That was pretty funny.

No bonuses for this at all? No special box like TLS, or Artbook like Xenoblade. Blah.

That's what I'm thinking too. And without the whole "You can only buy this at Gamestop" bullshit that Xenoblade had, this game is going to depreciate and I'd bet we'll be able to pick it up for 20 late this year.

I'm surprised by this too. It's pretty rare for Xseed to release a game without any bonuses or special edition.

Xseed had already stated a couple days after announcing localization that they weren't going to include any bonuses so it shouldn't be a surprise. It's likely because they're unsure how well it's going to sell at this point so their costs for it down.

No bonuses is fine. I'm just thankful it's coming out in North America. Would love it if they could do Fatal Frame 2 as well.

Agreed. Crimson Butterfly scared the pants off me way back when. I'm sure the remake would do the same.
