Wait, the ad says "Save $20" on Xillia, making it originally $40. Future price drop?

 

Ni No Kuni at $15 is great though. MSRP should be $20 now I thought, and it is getting a Greatest Hits version.

 

Surprised Dragon's Crown is $30 in that ad, a mere $10 off at current prices.

Dragon's Crown (:ps3:) was only $39.99 ($29.99 for the Vita version) through this past Tuesday--it's back up to $49.99 everywhere now.

Keep in mind, it just needs to be redeemed on an Asian account. It should work with any region.

Xenoblade is also going for $40. Surprised no one mentioned that yet.


It's also B2G1 on pre-owned games so it's an even better deal, unless they somehow exclude Xeno.

Everything Persona for starters.

 

In addition, I got Knights in Nightmare and Crimson Gem Saga based on recommendations and reviews. I doubt you could go wrong though.

I really wish they'd stop making games for Nintendo systems and move them all over to PC/PS3/Vita. I've absolutely no interest in the hardware Nintendo puts out nowadays, but the system gets great games. :(

Yeah, since the wii u is basically at the same level of an eight year old 360, Nintendo should get out of hardware like Sega did and concentrate just on software -- one fewer system to own in order to play all the games.

Yeah...they've got tons of great games, but the Wii U is a gimmicky POS. Same with the dual-screen aspect of the DS systems, IMO. I had one for a while and it always felt like a kids toy to me with the silly little stylus and the tiny, low-quality screens. I had an original Gameboy when it came out...and that was fine for when I was that age...but the 3ds doesn't feel like an adult toy, it feels like it's aimed at the age I was when the GB came out.

Well I personally disagree about the Wii U being gimmicky (the DS too, for that matter).  The Wii's motion controls, sure.  The 3D aspect of the 3DS?  Yup, but since you can turn it off & ignore it completely it really doesn't matter.  But I love the dual screen aspect of both systems, it's a feature that's actually very useful when used correctly.  

 

At any rate, Nintendo owns Monolith Soft (the Xenoblade dev) so good luck with waiting on their games to appear anywhere else.  ;)

The 3D aspect does matter. It's expensive, gimmicky technology that increases the cost of each unit. It's why the 3DS retailed for $250 originally before they dropped it in response to the Vita. Without Vita, it would have stayed that high for much longer. Nintendo finally understands this if they're making new ones without 3D technology. But you're right that they won't give up on making hardware unless they absolutely have to - licensing software for their machines is just too profitable.

I played all the other Persona's when they were on PSP

3DS 3D is a bit gimmicky though it's fun to use at times (I like to use it for cutscenes such as in the Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask it looks excellent). I can't play with it all the time mainly cause I have very sensitive eyes and they start to hurt a little while after using it. The touch screen on the bottom of both the 3DS and DS is awesome though...sometimes it feels weird trying to use the thumbstick or such and use a stylus too but it's decent esp in some games like Etrian Odyssey 4 where you can draw the maps.

I'm not.  It means level 5 had a good selling game...for once.

1) People suspect it wasn't that the 3DS cost $250 due to the 3D, but cost $250 dollars because thats what people suspected it would cost. 

2) The 2DS isn't designed with that in mind, but with children. There were a lot of speculation that points to it was designed to be less breakable, cheaper, easier to hold and like 10 other things that would appeal to younger children. Additionally, several people on CAG liked it for their young ones, but would have got a 3DS for older ones.

I fully agree and find it funny how many people hype remote play, which is just a more costly and longer distance version of what the Wii U is doing. Or to be more exact, Nintendo copied the idea of the original remote play and blended it with their DS concepts to make a new console.

Haven't seen anyone else mention this since we all got shipping notifications: for anyone who's still waiting on their Class of Heroes Kickstarter physical version, mine arrived today (Indiana) via USPS.  Everything arrived in tip-top shape, plus they threw in a neat little card. 

 

Good luck to the rest of you who ordered, hope you all get it soon.

I paid $60 day one for Ni No Kuni and Tales of Xillia, no regrets myself so I'd absolutely be all over them at $20 or less.

While I have not played ToX yet (still wrapped until I decide I wanna play it), I will say Ni No Kuni is fantastic. ToX probably is fantastic too because the Tales Series never seems to let down.

 

For $20, it's a no brainer. Especially Ni No Kuni, that might just be my GOTY.
