I might get some flak for this as it may be misinterpreted as an MSRP deal, but Amazon has Resident Evil: Revelations for $39.96. That's normally the MSRP for 3DS games, but Crapcom decided they want to charge $49.99 for this title because it uses a higher capacity cart. It's supposedly a full console experience game, and looks pretty good.

Everywhere else seems to have it for $49.99 so if you're interested in getting it this is probably the best deal out there

This is a Pre-order that releases 2/12/12. It's best to lock in this price now since it might go up after.

Alternatively, I noticed Gamestop has an exclusive 3DS case with theirs. It's MSRP for the game, but the case is pretty awesome and changes in different lighting

Good chance on a vita port, but really no murmurs of anything console related. But we shall see.

Wow, Crapcom is getting pretty greedy. $50 MSRP for a 3DS game is a joke.

Oh sweet, I forgot I had already ordered at the lower price with the gold box discount! I hope this game is as good as the hype, my 3DS barely gets any playtime.

$50 for a 3DS game? Now I don't care if it's a higher capacity cart, the only and I mean only way I would ever consider paying $50 is if this game was as good if not better than Resident Evil 4.

Since I have no clue if it will be, I am waiting. I might as well do an Amazon preorder. Can always cancel it.

Fuck, Amazon really wants me to sub for Amazon Prime. $5 to ship this game for 3-5 day.

It was. I preordered it with the case from GS online for $40. Hope they honor preorder prices like Amazon does.

if this sells good I'm sure you'll start seeing more games coming out at $50 for the 3ds, I recommend not supporting this one for that simple fact.

I think you are a tool for making such a dumb comment. How's that?

Pre-ordered on Amazon for $40 just in case the price goes back up to $50 and they decide to offer a $10-$20 gift card with it. What are the chances of that though?

That would also mean more games that uses capacity cart. I don't have a problem with that.

The quick switch into 1st person view while aiming makes me wanna vomit for some reason. Game graphics look great though. Don't know if the controls will hold up without that atrocious circle pad add-on, or if it is even supported. Is there no 180 degree quick turn option either?

As far as the gamestop preorder case goes, the quality of the RE Mercs 3DS case was quite flimsy, so I'd pass on that. Would go for amazon preorder or better yet, wait for price drop.

Sweet, preordered--thanks for the info, ssjmichael!

What has me most pumped for this RE is the new writer they hired, Dai Sato, best known for Wolf's Rain, Ghost in the Shell, and...oh, I don't know...freakin' Cowboy Bebop! :bouncy: Maybe the story will actually be good this time. :applause:

I thought 39.99 was average for a 3DS game........funny how Mario doesnt even go 49.99, I'll return my 3DS if I ever pay 50 for a new release

Mmm... I love me some Jill and Jessica sandwich (a nod to those who get the reference).

I want to get this game, but not for the 3DS.

Get it for the Atari 2600 then. It's probably more affordable for you. ;)
