Just ordered this a little while ago from Newegg. Looks like it's $5 less than most other stores price.

Hardly a "deal" as is common around here, but Graces doesn't seem like it's going to have a significant price cut before it sells out, so this is probably as good as it's going to get. NewEgg has only 46 copies, it seems. I paid the full price and I'm enjoying it quite a bit. :D

I would really love a new Tales game but I just can't justify paying (almost) full price for a game, especially after the Steam sale.

God, I hate how JRPGs are priced sometimes.

They assume it's a niche audience nowadays so there isn't a mass demand for it (thereby meaning they don't have to mass produce like crazy). With supply/demand relatively stable, the price tends to stay stable as well.

I wouldn't count on it going rare. I mean no other Tales games after Abyss for ps2 became rare. Vesperia sold out for awhile then went as low as $15 and abyss for the 3ds is still in stock.

Thanks for the heads up about that! I am worried about if I wait too long that the US release will go OOP and jump in price, but now that I see this SE I might just go for that.

I nabbed this on Amazon Whouse deals for 40 bucks. Worth every penny. Super fun battle system. Story is meh(can be cheesy) but I'm really addicted to leveling up titles. I jumped on the 40 because I didn't see this dropping massive price anytime soon.

Glad I preordered on Newegg for $48, there hasn't been a better deal since it seems.

Same here. I originally had $40 set away for this game (if it went on sale), but ended up spending it towards Steam.

Dang that European only SE looks temping! Never used Zavvi though, how much would shipping to US be? If that dropped to around $40 I'd definitely get it. Until then, I guess I'll just wait til the standard US edition drops to $30 price range.

Zavvi would destroy the packaging. It's not even worth ordering a boxed game from them. I guess getting this for $48 from newegg on release was actually a good deal. Even at full price it would have been fine, though. It took me over 200 hours to get a'perfect' save, so it's a good value regwrdless. Lol

What import Site do you guys recommend for shipping to the us? Preferably one that isn't going to damage the item in transit

None. Every single one will use a padded envelope / jiffy bag when the item will 'fit'. That means that most boxed LE, unless they're huge, will sustain anywhere from minor to extreme damage. Any boxed item I will always buy off ebay UK. I can ask the seller if they have one that isn't damaged already, and make sure they ship it in a well packed box to keep it that way. It's the only way to be sure.

Really don't see this game getting much lower, it has been pretty consistent with its retail price, pretty sure it had a limited run so copies may become rare. It did sell well enough to warrant Tales of Xillia getting a state side port which is bad ass.

How much is shipping to the US? Also how often do these mega monday sales occur?

I've never bought games from that site before.

They charge like a pound for US shipping. They also have frequent price drops, and a 'Mega Monday' every Monday. They ship in bubble mailers, though, so enjoy your crunched and beat up box!

I did buy Under Defeat HD Limited Edition for the ps3, but it was off of ebay after it came out. If it was from an import store, it would have been crushed since the product box isn't exactly strong.

Is this game going to be pretty rare in the future? I don't actually own a PS3 but I'm nearly willing to buy one solely for Graces f and Xillia. If it's going to be rare I might pick up Graces f now just in case.
