I love this thread. Most games I buy are Japanese games. Thanks, OP for putting all of these up, and thanks everyone for mentioning games they're interested in. I forgot about My World My Way until this thread, and now I have to search for it. And I would have never known about Fragile Dreams if it wasn't for another post about the pre-order bonus soundtrack at GS. I also never knew about the translation of Flower, Sun, and Rain. Going to track that one, too. Again, big ups.

My contribution, although it isn't out yet:

Deadly Premonition, developed by Marvelous Entertainment, being published by Ignition here in the states. Called Red Seeds Profile in Japan and being sold at full retail. $19.99 here, and we get it a month earlier. Screw Alan Wake. http://www.amazon.co...66092658&sr=8-1

Definitely picking up Persona for $17.99 at Newegg. I hope to see the Disgaea series on this list soon.

I've bookmarked this thread and check it daily now. Thanks for keeping this up to date.

edit: damn it, looks like Persona is OOS at Newegg.

This is an awesome list. Some eccentric games on there (Chulip) but all of them interesting in their own way.

I like to try Yggdra Union, as well as Kenka Bancho and Hammerin' Hero for PSP.

Awesome thread!! I want to start by saying it is a shame Natsume doesn't have any 360 games.

I would like to add to the thread that alot of SNK games are on clearance at Toys R Us (in-store) for $5. I recently picked up KoF 11, but also saw Neo Geo Battle Colleseum, Fatal Fury Vol 1, Fatal Fury Vol 2, Art of Fighting Collection, and SNK classics all for PS 2

Dang... I already bought most of the ones I wanted at higher prices.

Anyone going to a Frys in their area want to pick me up a Jake Hunter? If so send me a PM. I'll add shipping and throw in a couple of bucks for the trouble.

Hi everyone, I'm not posting this on the front page but with "Ryū ga Gotoku 4" (Yakuza 4) coming out in Japan and the third game is coming out on the PS3 in a few weeks, maybe...just maybe their might be another "Fatal Frame" like surge in price for the past two games. I enjoyed the past PS2 games and maybe others may want to get it because I'm noticing prices started to jack up.

Anyway, the game is from Sega and if you haven't yet purchased any of the "Yakuza" games, the cheapest right now are:

Yakuza - [USED][PS2] - $9.99 - Gamestop ->not sure of this company but Glyde has it for $6.75 (new?)
Yakuza 2 [NEW/USED][PS2] $19.99/$17.99 Gamestop

Oh man great thread! I just picked up Steal Princess along w/ 2 other games from that ebay seller, since he has really cheap shipping to Canada.

Disgaea DS is 10$ [new] at vgp.ca (+3$ shipping)

kndy...Yakuza is a great game but I'm not sure what you're trying to do.

Newegg has Persona (PSP) back in stock, but it's back to $39.99. Sucks I missed out on the $17.99 deal.

Deadly Premonition came out today at Gamestop, but won't be until next week at Amazon. My store had two copies, one sealed, one gutted. Haven't popped it in yet, but it looks like a great game with lots to do. Almost like D2 meets Silent Hill.

Also the Yakuza 3 demo is out in the PSN store for anyone on the fence about it. Myself included.

What is $9.99 Canadian in US dollars by any chance? Hehe... Yeah, that "Steal Princess" is a great deal since it's a game that people are not going to find that easily. I think the seller has around 15 more.

$9.57. You can change the currency in the right-hand sidebar. vgp.ca is extremely popular with European importers.

Rosenqueen.com has Ar Tonelico (w/out artbook) for $19.99 and Ar Tonelico 2 w/ Netherworld Harmony Set CD for $29.99. Not bad considering Amazon has them for $37.19 and $39.99 respectively. And you don't get the CD included w/ Ar Tonelico 2 on Amazon.

I just ordered both along with Disgaea 2 (PSP) w/ Laharl prinny plushie ($39.99).

Shipping was only $5 (but I live in CA so YMMV on shipping).

Anyone buying Mimana Iyar Chronicles? The launch copies seem to be bundled with a soundtrack CD. So I"m not sure if I should jump on it before the CD bundle is all gone, or just wait for an eventual price drop.

I am. The whole "launch copies come with a bonus" thing is hard to read. On one hand Aksys did do something similar with BlazBlue, but that was specifically labeled as a limited edition. On the other hand Atlus does this all the time, and as far as I'm aware none of their "launch copies come with bonus" games have had any release without the extras.

Do all Personas come with the soundtrack? The reason I'm asking is because I was going order it off Amazon, because my local Gamestop still has it for $29.99 and the box is beat up badly.

Was at Toys R' Us today, saw a bunch of SNK PS2 games on clearance for $5. Art of Fighting Collection, Fatal Fury Collection 1/2, SNK Arcade Classics 2. YMMV of course, they aren't on the website at this price. This was in Topeka, KS.

If it's Persona PSP then they were still coming with the soundtrack from amazon as of a week or two ago.
