This game, published by the now-defunct THQ, has become hard to find new at a reasonable price. This is a great deal for those that missed out on it before.

Nice find OP. I've been trying to snag a copy of this even though I have it on Steam.

There's only 7 in stock so it's probably gonna go past.

7 in stock? Normally I see the countdown when there is less than 20 left, but I do not see that here. I was thinking there would be more than 7.

I think that's only for items where Amazon is the seller. This is just being fulfilled by Amazon, but sold by a third party seller.

Just a heads up for PC gamers.  This game looks like it will be offered as a bonus game for the Humble Deep Silver Bundle. There's a thread for this bundle so check it out.

The seller now has 9 available. I'm guessing the seller is just fucking around with the quantity to make it appear that his stock is lower than it actually is.

I just checked mine and I'm getting August 6th as the estimated delivery date. I don't get what's going on with Amazon... Prime no longer qualitys for all items and now, 2-day shipping takes 4 business days.

I've noticed that. How is it prime then? Just free?

It is sort of like when Amazon (not a 3rd party) sells out an item, but they still accept orders at that price while they wait for more stock to arrive. They usually adjust the ship time to say something like "Usually ships in 1-2 weeks". This is a 3rd party, though, and you would expect for their slot to just disappear once sold out rather than saying that you will have to wait.

 

I ordered 2 copies yesterday, and they both shipped today. Hopefully everyone gets what they ordered in a reasonable time.

Did anyone that ordered on Wednesday receive it yet?  I'm wondering if these are the original THQ copies, or if Deep Silver might be doing a reprint now that they have the Metro series.  If it's the latter, the game will likely be available from other retailers in the future.

Whatever they've done, Hubbagames is killing the other sellers with that price!  Unless there is a reprint, this thing will probably be at least  an average of $100 for a sealed copy by the holidays.

Hmmm, to buy one at this price or keep trying to nab a $15-$20 used copy elsewhere...

 

EDIT: Argh, damn. I picked one up. Didn't really want to spend more than $20 on this and was pretty sure that at some point in the future I could get it at that price for a used copy. But at least this way I don't have to worry about the condition of such a product. I've been curious what this game is like for a couple months now and if I had hesitated, someone might have bought them all up to resell. So whatevs I guess, I'll deal with almost $30 for it.

I'll be interested to see what everyone receives. I know the game isn't ultra rare but it's hard enough to find that I'm a little curious if these are reprints or resealed or what.

If it does happen to be a reprint, I will more than likely just return my copy and wait for a better price on a reprint.

Can't imagine it is a reprint though, if no one has spotted it for a cheap price at any retailers.

Thanks, I bought one. Still had 64, I think. 

 

BTW, why is it charging me sales tax? I live in MA and I thought the Amazon sales tax was supposed to start being charged after Nov. 1, 2013 in MA...

This is through a 3rd party, and they must be collecting for your state. I have had that happen for me, too.

Well, whatever. Still only $30. Not too bad for a game like this.

Has ANYONE had theirs ship? I'm not buying any because I still have my region free UK Metro 2033 (which if as a fallback can be found super cheap) but hubbagames has made the TiV yo-yo from the $28.xx it usually hovers at.

This game is terrific. The game got pretty eerie at times; a good refresher from the traditional fps games. I snagged a copy a year ago for $25. $28.99 seems like an okay deal.
