:360:http://www.amazon.co...=Anarchy Reigns
:ps3:http://www.amazon.co...=Anarchy Reigns (priced dropped to $29.99 on 10/19)

Finally, gamers in the West can get their hands on #AnarchyReigns Jan 8 in North America for $29.99 and Jan 11 in Europe for £19.99/€24.99!


Thanks to excellen for the info, $30 is the MSRP so you may want to cancel your orders and wait for a price below MSRP.

So a quick (and probably incomplete summary)
Spoiler

It has a new release date of January 8 (according to Amazon).

It's set to release March 2013.

If you're paying with a credit card, you won't be charged until it ships. If you're using a gift card balance, that amount will be set aside for the order.

This game is not worth even $30. I played the Japanese version at a friend's house and can say that the game gets old REALLY quick. It's ridiculously repetitive and even all the other characters don't offer enough variability in game play to make it worth-while. This is a renter at best.

Any idea which of the two platforms is preferable and might be the lead platform?

I had $5 applied because the release date for Epic Mickey slipped to a Sunday and wasn't eligible for RDD anymore. It could have been for any reason though.

I remember well about the mess that was Bayonetta on the 360 vs PS3. Not sure about why Vanquish was better on the PS3 vs 360, though a refresher wouldn't be a bad idea, as I remember it being pretty much a toss-up between the two consoles.

MGR: R was a given for PS3 over 360, so no worries there.

So this really is the new MSRP, guess I'm cancelling my GS preorder. Hate that the in store pick up preorder at GS cannot be cancelled online or by emailing CS.

For anyone wondering, the game isn't worth 30. The story is simply awful. The gameplay gets old fast. The platinum is short. Online is dying. etc.

so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more


guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

Bayonetta was mess on the PS3 since Sega handled that version.After that Platinum made sure to make develop Vanquish themselves for the PS3

Frankly, if Sega is going to have the balls to delay the game by nearly a year just because, I should hope that I get it for a little cheaper. I've heard a few reasons, like Sega reorganizing their board of directors or something, but delaying it for so long just can't be excused IMO.

Especially when they're sitting on the localized versions. Seriously.

I agree, this is a nice price point. My guess is they delayed it so Japanese players didn't import our version instead, since it would be so much cheaper for them. P4: Arena region locked the game to prevent this.

If that were the case, then they shot themselves in the foot in the western market because they're delaying it for too long. Are they even marketing this game at all now? That's what worries me.

I was a little interested in this game, though. Has anyone here imported it and/or played it? Is it worth waiting on?

I imported, platinumed and reviewed it (even posted my opinion earlier), so I can tell you it's not worth 30. The gameplay is fun at first, but it quickly gets old. The story is simply awful and doesn't even make a lot of sense. The campaign is only around 5 hours long. The platinum can be done in 3 days. Most of the side characters have virtually no role in the story. The game sold poorly, so the online is slowly dying.

@ Barrit

Not likely. The game was originally planned to sell for 60, so the delay has nothing to do with the new price point. If I was to take a guess, I would say that Sega has no faith in it. The demo was released around the time of E3 and it wasn't there. By a stark contrast they were giving away Hell Yeah! buttons, plus it had a 2+ hour long demo there. Additionally when you consider platinum games sells poorly here, they're not trying to market it AT ALL (Bayonetta wasn't even confirmed for preorder back when Japan was...) or anything at all. Being completely honest here, I can see them scraping it all together.

so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more

I imported it. I thought it was pretty fun and had some interesting/funny characters. I've never played Mad World, so everyone was new to me. In story mode you are pretty limited in who you can play, but they also have a mission select option where you are able to choose any of the other characters for all of the stages (once you have cleared that particular stage in story mode). I liked the online mode, but it is hard to find a match. Given the time difference though, I doubt I'm ever on during peak hours for Japan. Like admiralvic said, I read the game didn't sell too well, so that doesn't help. None of the trophies were tied to online mode though, in case that matters to any of you.

When I pre-ordered it at Gamestop a few months ago, all the research I could scrape up online pointed to the PS3 version being the lead platform.

I still have to go to GameStop and cancel my pre-order. When does this game come out?


Yup, me too. I hope it's not too big of a hassle. Anyway, preordered on Amazon just to make sure to lock in the price. If it turns out $30 really is the MSRP, I may cancel it, haven't decided yet.

EDIT: I hate GameStop.

When I called to try and cancel over the phone (a no-go) the guy said I could just not pick it up and I'd be ok since I didn't put any money down (ordered it online). However in the email confirmation I received it said that they have the authorization to charge my card $5 if I don't pick it up within 48 hours of release. So I kind of don't want that to happen.
