I just picked up Summon Night Twin Age(Atlus) for $9.99 used after a price drop from ebgamestop.

It's not as good as the GBA games but it's worth $10(It's $19.99 new btw)

Did you see Blazblue 360 used at Gamefly for $17.99/no shipping? I think thats a nice deal, though I haven't played it yet.

My favorite game companies in one thread! I'm happy to watch this and hope for good used prices. Too bad I already own a good chunk of the Atlus games. :/

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


It's cheap at Newegg too. I think their copies come with sound track too. I have yet to see a version sold without sound track.

Yes, at Gamestop. It's been that price for many months though, so it'd probably be hard to find. I picked up my copy of it sealed for $5 sometime during the summer.

Me too on all counts, but there really is just too many games to track.

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.


oos ;_;

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.

Super Robot Taisen OG DS no longer comes with the soundtrack CD in a premium box. I recall someone reportedly ordering it from amazon 2 months after launch and didn't get the soundtrack.

Hi everyone, quick question. For GameFly, do you have to be a member to purchase a game? If not, then I'll start incorporating some prices to the front page.

Absolutely not. Gamefly wants EVERYONES money, not just subscribers. I am not a GF member and have purchased many games on separate occasions.

No, but you get discounts if you are a member for so long. I got BlazBlue for $11 after coupon/discounts

When I wanted to get Knights in the Nightmare a few months ago, I went looking for a copy with the soundtrack CD -- tried about six stores that had the game in stock, and none of them had the CD. I finally gave up and just bought the game without it. So apparently they do put out releases without the extras for at least some games.

OP might consider adding another small US publisher to the list: Valcon

Two of my favorite games from Valcon are:

Dai Senryaku Exceed 7: Modern Military Tactics amazon link

and

Shepherd's Crossing amazon link

I just snagged a mint and complete Phantom Brave for the PS2 last night at my local GameStop for $6.99 (before Edge discount). YMMV obviously, but a nice price. I checked the website but it isn't listed for online purchase sadly.

Is that one any good? I've picked it up and looked at it a few times now, but haven't been quite sure enough to actually buy it yet.

No idea, but I always think SkyGunners when I see this.

Mostly decent reviews (75 @ metacritic): http://www.metacriti...ersinnocentaces

I've been waiting for this to drop at GS (credit to use) because it's a difficult one to find used.

If anyone is interested in retro game challenge its available in Canada for $4.99 used and $9.99 new (probably gutted). I can pick up a few copies.

It's cheap to ship to/from Canada. Please take a look at Magiic's Magiical Shipping Guide.

For NIS, Disgaea 3 on the PS3 has dropped down to $19.99 new and $17.99 used at Gamestop... though the website says the used price is online only, I just called a local Gamestop and they said it was $17.99. This is a $10 price drop.

Might be a temporary price drop on Disgaea 3. Amazon dropped theirs to just under $23 yesterday too, but it is back up to $29.99 now there.

Tokyo Beat Down is on clearance at J&R for $6.99+$2.95 shipping, so all in all, about $10 shipped.
