And this is my buy price. That's kind of sad considering how excited I used to get for FF games in my youth.

Yup appears to be dead now. Shame. I already own it but I was thinking about picking one up for a gift.

Thanks OP, I thought about ordering it (when the dead was still alive), but I think I will wait for an in-store $20 price drop/sale.

Already have it, but still thinking on having a sealed copy to have for another 20 years.

Edit: Nevermind. This deal is dead, posted at 44.99 now.

Thanks for heads up on FF13, I missed the bestbuy offer by mere seconds. Purchased the Amazon offer of 19.99 and got a PSN $10 card also to get free shipping. Also gambling on buying 2 non Sony controllers with sixaxis ability for 25 each with shipping.

Even though I already bought this at the Sears sale a bit ago, for this price it is an absolute bargain!

I bought it for $30, and felt that price was justifiable for the game...in fact, I liked it, amidst the mixed reviews. Then again, I knew what I was getting into. Sure it is different and linear to propel the story in a rhythmic pace, but for what it is, it was enjoyable.

Of course, I will agree that it could have been better...and yes, implementation of classic towns and cities would have helped flesh out things. But for $20, you can't go wrong, and it will entertain you...not to mention the production values are extremely high, enough to warrant the $20 spent.

Just my 2 centavos...

On the one hand, I'm sad I didn't wait to buy this cheaper.

On the other hand, I'm happy others are getting a deal/chance to play this. Loved the game. Linear wasn't a problem for me, I embraced it because the game is directed at casual and hardcore gamers (endgame optional stuff). I don't think casual gamers normally beat a Final Fantasy until now, which is a shame because they are missing out on the stories.

I fell asleep after getting the first auto achievement and haven't played it since. Maybe one day I will get back to it. =/

Give me a good old FF6 remake with Kefka in all of his glory please. =p

Thanks for the heads up (bought it earlier, but never posted)

I didn't know where to ask, but recently (after FF13 being shipped) I read there is this freezing problem (actually in some cases kills the PS3's laser).

Did Sony / Square-enix fix this problem? Is my ps3, fat 80gig with software ps2 emu, more in danger of freezing/ylod?
