I don't know if this has been mentioned but DJ Max for the Vita is $39.99 for the U.S. version with free shipping. That's the lowest I've seen that game get.

That's tempting, but I might hold off for the PSN digital version to go on sale. I'm still on the fence with this one, seeing how I don't have a Vita at the moment.  Not having a paper manual is also discouraging.

Aside from "Tales of Xillia" being pricematched on Amazon, "Kingdom Hearts Remix", "Final Fantasy Theaterythm" on (or was on) sale and the ICO set for $9.99.... I'm a bit shocked that Aksys, Xseed, NIS America, Atlus game sales that we have seen in the past on Amazon are zilch on BF.

 

Hopefully, "Dragon's Crown", "Code of Princess", "Killer is Dead" "Sweet Fuse: At Your Side", "Zero Escape" and others go down in price.

 

I'm hoping "RE6", "Project x Zone", "Fire Emblem" go down...

I think Amazon matched Gamestop's sales on Dragon's Crown and Killer is Dead.  I know someone mention Sweet Fuse several posts ago so somewhere might have that on sale.

My Gamestop had the LE for Killer is Dead for $40. Is that a good price for it? Not entirely sure what comes with the LE

Dunno, but what's in the LE is an Artbook, Soundtrack, and a DLC code for Gigolo Glasses (or something like that), so yeah...>_>

Yeah, I know but for $10 bucks I can own it and not have to worry about losing access to them when I get tired of PSN+. Plus it can test out remote play on them with my Vita since I currently have Vita fever.

Same here. I went through the checkout process all the way up till when they asked for Paypal and didn't see any place to put in the code. Blegh.

 

Thanks for the heads up though, I'll browse through their stock in the interim.

 

 

Edit: The sale sucks after looking into it. 30% off is great, but there's a flat $5 shipping fee for each item. The Jubei plush is nice but not good enough to make up for the shipping.

 

Has anybody figured out where to put the stupid code for the Aksys sale? I'd like to get 999 from them, but they don't seem to want my money. =P

That's MSRP I believe.  It's ok I guess seeing as it may be hard to find the LE (first print) version

That's a good price on Technika Tune... I have DJ Max for PC and bought DMJP3 while $20 (I know there's hate, but I like it...).  I spent my Amazon funds and some cash on Muramasa Rebirth and Dragon's Crown for my Vita... so those three (plus an unfinished Persona 4 Golden!) will keep me busy for a long time to come!

Some really great Japanese game deals today.

Saw it on Siliconera.  What a bummer.  I've never played a Rune Factory game I didn't enjoy, and RF4 is selling more briskly than any before it.

 

I know they worked on some Lufia and Shining Force games, too, but I assume those were not Lufia I, II or Shining Force I, II or III.  :)  Anyway, Rune Factory is quality.

I didn't even know DJ Max had a pc version. I bought a copy of DJ Max Portable 3 new for like $8. The song selection was okay but I liked the music more in DJ Max Technika.

ok... where the hell do you enter the BLUE promo code on Aksys's site for the 30% off? I may be blind but i just cant find it. I was trying to snag a couple copies of ragnarok tactics. Wanted Sorcery saga too but its sold out

 

*edit*

 

Has anybody figured out where to put the stupid code for the Aksys sale? I'd like to get 999 from them, but they don't seem to want my money. =P

They developed Lufia I & II and Shining Force Neo and Shining Force EXA.

Wow!  Just to be sure, the SNES Lufia I and II?  Gosh I loved those games.  I have wanted re-releases for years, or even just Virtual Console releases.

I emailed their online orders division, but haven't gotten a response. I love Aksys, but this is just kind of sad. (It looks especially bad when I emailed Winter Wolves on the same day and got a response in like 2 minutes.)

Never played any of the games in the Lufia series.  Maybe I'll pick up Rune Factory 4 one day.

Went ahead and ordered from Aksys Games website before the end of Black Friday.  I hope things get straightened out.

This might be hope, or it might not be.  Who knows.  Japanese society dictates such vagueness.

As Japanese games have become marginalized in recent years, I wonder if we will see more developers shutter their doors. I think Cing, the makers of Hotel Dusk and Little King's Story, shut down for similar reasons.

Aksys Games has fixed their code input issue, least that's what I have been led to believe.  Now to figure out how to cancel a Paypal order from them and reorder.
