I hope this sells well. I like that NIS are giving Prinny its own hardcore platformer.

Eh, I don't really like the extras, the normal version with CD, Comic, and big box has everything I want (Which is more or less just the CD), so I'll just buy it in store.

u can buy the Prinny plush on its own for $15, and the blue pouch for $12,

so u only save $2 buying the 2nd bundle.

for those like myself who are intrigued by the toy but have no need for the pouch,

I can buy the game and toy together for $55, $10 less than the bundle!!

I think the game on its own will be just fine for me in this case... thanks though, OP :)

I couldn't care less about a carrying case because my PSP is skinned heavily for my yearly 3287854645564 accidental drops. >_>

The plushie on the other hand is badassery personified. I want that in my car asap.

This is really a great example of a game that should be $20 and yet they are insisting on charging $40 and giving you a box and a comic you will never read. Collector's editions should be reserved for games that really move the art of gaming forward, not throw-away obscure titles.

Me too. Although I'm glad it isn't. I can't afford another PSP and being denied a Prinny one would break my heart.

Hmm I wonder if they are going to do some kind of bundle for Cross Edge since it is out around the same time.

So the soundtrack is pretty much the only thing that's not being sold separately? You save a few bucks but it doesn't seem worth it... though the deluxe box would be nice.:-k Plus, the fact that they're the only online retailer I've ever shopped at that charges you when you place the order and not when they actually ship it.

Not sure about this one... but I'll go for it for now.

I was gonna say I really love the pouch and plushie, but I don't think I want the game... and the OP has me covered!

I was going to comment on this, but it's so wrong I'm not sure where to start. Anyways I'll probably just order the game from Amazon, I've already got the manga, and saving like two bucks off the plush and pouch by ordering the bundle isn't really a great deal for me.

Scary negative review of the import on Gamefaqs if anyone is interested:

Main complaints seem to be it's insanely hard and the story is ridiculous. I think those are actually the selling points.

Ok, I'll play. I think Bioshock really deserved it's collector's edition. This is just a cute little game which is probably going to be fun to play, but there is no way it should be $40 and include a box, comic and CD. Making it $20 and therefore making it an impulse buy for more people would have been a great way to go. As it stands, this is going to become a niche, niche title.

It's a semi-short shooter. It boils down to an FPS games that has magic. Yea, it's pretty, get over it. It's fairly linear, while yes you can explore some, MOST games have *some* exploration you can do, but by all means you are stuck going from Point A to Point B.

I agree that Bioshock at least justified the price of its collector edition. $10 over regular price with a big-ass, cool looking figure in some impressive (if easily damaged :( ) packaging is cool with me. Anyhow, I don't want to push this off-topic anymore than I already have. It's late and I'm tired. I should be playing videogames rather than picking fights about them.
