I was in Best Buy today and saw that the Record of Agarest War Zero LE for PS3 had dropped to $39.99. It's not listed on their site anymore, but according to an employee it's a permanent price drop.


360 version is also $39.99.

If anyone managed to nab an extra one of the $5.99 PS3 copies of Record of Agarest War Zero from that ridiculous Newegg sale today, I'd be up for buying one off of you. I still have to pick that game up, but can't believe Newegg clearanced it like that!

Bah, I wish I would have seen that. I've already got it on 360 but I'd buy it again for PS3 at that price.

Damn, I picked up the Skyrim CE for 60 bucks and figured that'd be it on deals for the day.. never even saw a post for this one! Oh well.

The 360 version was being sold for $15.99, not sure why the PS3 version sold for $5.99. Maybe newegg forgot the 1... :lol: I was going to make a post on it but it literally sold out before I could log into CAG.

Yeah that's weird about Agarest Zero. Look at my 360 card, you see it on there. I'd double dip for just 6 bucks though. Lame how none of us got a chance to pick some up. Wonder how people even found out about that. >_>

The best versions would be the PSP versions if you want some added content. Honestly though there's enough meat to the PS2 versions that you wouldn't be missing much if you'd rather them on a console. If you ever plan to get a Vita you'd be better off getting Disgaea 3 on the Vita since all the DLC is included(which is like $50 on PSN I believe).

Thanks to you and all the others who answered!

I'm just gonna look up which one is a remake of the first game.

That would be Afternoon of Darkness for PSP, and I believe Disgaea DS is as well.

One of the few times my jaw fell at a price, of course I just missed getting it.

That is very weird. I'm not even sure if that deal ever existed. I do see that they have the $5.99 and out-of-stock indicator on their website, but did they ever have it in-stock for $5.99?

And how good is Agarest Zero anyway?

I cannot wait to play Disgaea in my Vita! Honestly SRPGS and JRPGS are perfect for handhelds.

I'm tempted, but seeing as how Amazon has at least 999 copies, I think that magical $19.99 price point isn't too far away...:bouncy:

Nevermind, lol, same or cheaper on Amazon. I just get excited when I see cheap RPG's!

Not sure if this has been posted before but Newegg has Golden Sun Dark Dawn, Magical Starsign, and Glory of Hercules for $9.99 each. [ds obviously ;) ]

Magical Starsign has been around $10 new and used for years. I remember getting it for $8 brand new, back in 2010

I'm buying through NISA for my physical copy. This is the one cartridge that will live inside my vita. All other games I've purchased, and intend to purchase, are going to be from psn. I want the sexy microfiber cloth! Thanks NIS<3

Crap. I already have Disgaea for PS3. Is the bonus DLC and new content worth another $40??? I may have to wait and buy this used or wait for a sale for sub-$30.

Is Tales of Graces F one of those games that will probably be easy to find 5-6 months down the road or not? I am contemplating picking up a copy sometime in the distant future if it's going to be hard to find since GS is doing 50% bonus tiv for games.

It looks like we may be getting a NA release for Tales of Xillia... Namco Bandai apparently registered a US trademark on March 20th.

While this is good for western audiences, I do hope they put out the director's cut edition first in JP, and have that version be localized here. I think a previous article about an interview with Hideo Baba said that some elements were rushed from the game.

Agreed. Easily NIS's worst game. Although Last Rebellion is a close second.


no way, Last Rebellion is way worse

I wish the PSN Record of Agarest War would drop. Traded my 360 version back in, in favor of the PS3 version. No particular reason, just been playing my PS3 more lately.

Anyone know if Aksys/PlayStation ever had a previous sale on this one - or any sales on codes for it?

It had a price drop to what it is currently, but that's it. I wish they would put it on sale too. I have the PAL CE version, but it has no trophies, so I would rather buy it again on US PSN and play it that way.

I doubt it's really selling all that many at this point. Might as well drop this to $9.99 - I bet it would get a nice uptick in purchases after that.

Any clue when that drop was? Trying to figure out if it's likely we'll get another soon.

I was also hoping for a PS Plus discount on it - I'd even pay 50% off. $15 would be totally fine for that game. Just, with Zero and then this one, it's a lot to spend.
