One second I am telling myself I can wait for this one, next thing I know the damn thing is sky-rocketing out of control in price on eBay. I think my work is out of them, going to double check tomorrow, but anyone seen one of these around NW WA lately? Thanks!

I'm in the same boat as you. I was waiting for a price drop, and now all of the sudden it's near impossible to find! Such are the dangers of a true cheap ass gamer... :(

I just got my DS for Xmas, and haven't seen a copy yet. (Lots of Trace Memory, though.)

There's one down here in Cascade Mall dude, come on down, I was actually debating between either that or Riviera for myself but Riviera won out.

playasia.com still has it listed. It says it will ship in 2 to 4 weeks. So I don't know how successful it may be.

My wife got it for Christmas from my dad and she hasn't put it down. I have been trying to find something to get her into games that is more than a puzzle game and this has done it.

Hmm...good thing I picked up this gem back in November. =) I'm currently playing it, and it's a wonderful game-- the perfect alternative for a college student who commutes to school every day.

To answer your question, my store copy got in some copies a few weeks back...(I work at the Lynnwood GameStop). The Alderwood Mall GameStop across might still have some.

Inflated ebay prices, eh? Best Buy had some yesterday. I didn't know it was getting hard to find, and I debated picking it up. Wish I would've grabbed one! :sad: (I live far away from a BB...)

I called my local Gamestops and they all said its discontinued and not in stock. I just finished trace memory and was looking forward to getting Phoenix Wright. Lucky for me my brother found one in CT for me.

I beleive that was me. Good luck finding it. It took me forever. There probably still some copies Gamestop and Fry's would be your best bet.

I bought mine the day it came out. I figured that it would be one of those games that would hard to find, so I'm really glad I did. Its nowhere to be found around here anymore.

I really REALLY dont think this is anymore than a temporary vacuum caused by Christmas. Capcom will probably have more out to stores at some point, perhaps they were just caught off guard.

i actually think so too. but knowing capcom these past 10 years on game printing, it may well be out of print.

I work tomorrow (Gamestop across from Best Buy in Burlington) so I'll check, but I'm pretty sure we sold our last copy last week.

It is not temporary. The game was an experiment and it didn't sell well. I still hold out hope for a reprint and many people buying it but. . . It's unlikely. The sequels are getting released for the PC in Japan. And i've heard they might be translated to english so theres hope.

For anyone looking for this: check Amazon.com. There is a seller there, alphacraze, who must have fell into a ton of them, because they are selling new ones for $29.10. I bought one and it shipped. They have sold out and then put more up at least two times now, so give it a look. I'll let you guys know when I get mine to tell you if anything shady went on, but they have like 200,000 feedbacks and I have bought school books from them before, no prob.

Thanks for everyone trying to help me out though! ^_^

i should have picked up a copy in December, when they were still around, haven't seen them since.

I hope BB stocks more so I can use the $10 coupon.

Not going to happen. If you want this game you're going to have to pay more then likely. Because it's on the way to rare. Why hesitate. If you buy it you can sell it for probably more then you payed. That is if you can locate it.

The GS I work at (Burlington, across from Best Buy) got a copy traded in last night. If you want it, you better hurry.

If you need it, the phone number is 360-757-2745

Perhaps I should go pick up a copy then, I keep putting it off because it hasn't been exactly hard to find in the past.

Well I did a lot of shopping right after christmas and I already owned phoenix wright but I do watch DS games very closely (its one of my main systems I collect for) Anyway

Tacoma,lakewood,puyallup: gamestop/target/ebgames/circuitcity/compusa/bestbuy/toysrus
None of those stores in those 3 cities have phoenix wright, and to be honest I havent ever seen phoenix wright in a store around here even when it was new, I had to get mine off the internet.

Since december in the dallas area only Fry's and gamestop have had them. And now I haven't seen them even there lately.
