Seriously, ordered from Amazon. I just can't resist that price and all the great things I've heard about the game.

Thanks for posting this, OP--after sales tax and in-store pickup, I just saved $5 on 3rd Birthday vs. Amazon.

Doesn't look like they are going to match Tactics Ogre either.

How long will the sale for MGS last for?

Anyone think that MGS will go down to $10 sometime?

It's only a 4 dollar savings, so you can do better during the numerous B1G1 50% off or B2G1 deals if you wait around for them and have 2 or 3 games lined up.

But do you think this game will be cheaper later on, like WITHOUT having to buy other games like a B1 g1 50%.

Well Best Buy's sale is suppose to last until March 5th so Amazon's sale will mostly likely end the same day.

I did one for Tactics Ogre, but with them matching everything else they obviously know so I'm not hoping for much.

MGS: Peace walker, KH: Birth by Sleep at that price is great. Tactic Ogre and 3rd Birthday is kinda meh.

I was looking further into it and 3rd Birthday MSRP is $29.99 and Tactic Ogre MSRP is $39.99. Both PSP game, one made new from scratch and the other a remake. What is up with that? Does 3rd Birthday suck or is SE trying to milk the Tactic Ogre name?


3rd Birthday sucks because it's not true to the prequels and Square Enix can only make money by buying out developers and remaking old games that have a quality that Square Enix cannot reproduce.

Watch TRU for new release PSP games I got socom fireteam bravo 3 for $12.99 after the clearance price and one of there b1G1 % off. The key is finding the right TRU. Montgomeryville PA, Horsham PA & lawrenceville NJ can have good selections.

I have a $10 RZC so I'm trying to decide which option to do here... Just looking for some opinions of those who have played some of these games please (closed my other slightly similar topic).

- For $10 I can get Pixel Junk Monsters and then two others which I'm having trouble picking from...as of yesterday they had Twisted Metal, Burnout Legends, NFS Most Wanted, Final Fantasy, SOCOM 1, LocoRoco 2, Patapon 2,and Medal of Honor Heroes 1.

- Or I can spend a little more and get two newer games that are on sale for $15.99. Ones they had that I'm interested in are Little Big Planet, GTA Chinatown Wars, MGS Peacewalker, GTA VC Stories, and AC: Bloodlines.

- Final option would be to just get one game that's one sale. For 23.99 they have Kingdom Hearts: BBS, or tomorrow 3rd Birthday as well for that pric

I'd be all over 3rd Birthday, but I'm getting the PSN version so it'll play on the NPG.

I read an interview recently that said 3rd Birthday was only being released (stateside anyway) on UMD. Has SE changed their mind on this?

Also, assuming free in-store pickup I am definitely in for this. Had planned on getting 3rd birthday from Amazon anyway, so might as well save $6. Thanks OP!

When SE releases a PSN release for PSP games in JP they usually are also released in the US on PSN.

Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep is down to $23.99 now.

Also, I was at a store today and the 20% off prices were marked in store as well.

I really hope so. I have no problem picking up a digital copy, but I really wouldn't mind having Parasite Eve I and II on the same memory stick as 3rd Birthday when they all go on PSN soon.


Then again, I'm always wary with square ever since the kingdom hearts psp thing.

It just became a $20 GH so most times the deals on those are b2g1f.

Tactics Ogre is in my Gold Box today. It would be awesome if they price matched and I got it for even less. One can dream...

Maybe you're misremembering and thinking of the Joystiq story with the press release? Because the press release for Tactics Ogre didn't state that there would be a PSN version either, but it ended up there on the same day as the UMD, so I think they made a faulty assumption when trying to look between the lines. All they really should've said was "no PSN version was specified in the press release".

It's possible, I just would have sworn I read elsewhere (for some reason I'm thinking Siliconera) that someone in SE flat out said no PSN release. I'm trying to hunt it down now and will post the link if I can find it again. (I could seriously just be misremembering or zoning on this though. -.- )

edit - Well, I can't find it at the moment. I guess disregard what I said until I find something supporting what I said earlier.

"This is a UMD-only release with no plans for a downloadable PSN version at present." So that's not to say there will never ever be a PSN release, just that there hasn't been any confirmation of one even happening. So yep, that's the one I was thinking of.

And actually reading over the press release, yeah. I didn't see anything speaking against a PSN release. Kinda irritated now at Joystiq for filling in blanks that weren't there in the first place. >=|
