Man not sure what to do. I want this game but I'm not sure if I should get it now or take a chance and get it cheap if they reprinted too many. I waited on DQ5 and ended up getting it for $17.


I'm in the same situation as you. After reading all the praise for this game, it makes me really want to have it. I remember going to a Gamestop around mid December that had it with the CD for $35 'new.' I didn't think it was that rare though. x.x Since then, I haven't seen it in any store. What to do, what to do? >.<


There aren't too many Atlus games that have kept their value after a 2nd reprint and eBay's is already being flooded by all the people trying to ditch their copy before word of the reprint spreads.

I may get criticized for saying something like this on this site, but I recently heard how awesome this game was so like others I have missed out. That being said, I have no problem paying msrp for this title because I feel that Atlus needs all the sales they can get to keep pumping out great jrpgs! I have no problem holding out for a sale but in this case I don't feel like gambling due to atlus only being able to produce so many copies at a time.

Without Atlus, we wouldn't have seen Demon's Souls. Just saying.

I feel obligated to pick up a copy because I couldn't find a copy last year and I used "questionable methods" to finally play and beat it. I enjoyed the game so immensely that I feel like the devs deserve my money and I will definitely be picking up a reprint.

Wow... I didn't realize this game was so fun (and so valuable!) - I still have the sealed CD copy sitting on one of my DS backlog shelves......to get to sometime in the future (yes I have a backlog collection that needs some serious gaming ex-lax but I'm not really a collector per se) now the real question I think everyone is asking is... does it blend??? :rofl:
They think it's all over. Well it is now.

This game was <$20 on Amazon at one point last year. I didn't bite and now $35 is a bitter pill to swallow. What to do. What to do.

For those of you that have the game with the box and cover art, would you be willing to scan the cover art and sent it to me? I got it used from Gamestop and for some reason they toss out a lot of cases WITH their cover art. All I got was the little cartridge.

I don't have the game yet, but I have it ordered on amazon for the reprint. If no one who has it now offers, I can scan it and email it to you when I get my copy late next month.

Just noticed that the reprint is now in stock at Amazon. They have over 999 copies so I'm gonna hold off and see if it'll go cheaper at some point, all the while keeping track of the current stock.

I got the game from Goozex and was delighted to finally get it. I'm happy to many people will be able to get this game at an affordable price now.

20 bucks and then MAYBE I'll bite. There are too many RPGs on the DS as it is and they are too similar to each other.

That is correct. This is the 3rd printing but I'm guessing they were all fairly low print runs.

Personally, I think this is the best RPG on the DS (ignoring Chrono Trigger, which was a remake).

I am wondering how many reprints there are. I got a copy but am not going to open it probably if I can get another...one for my personal pleasures and the other for keeping in a collection. I might stack on Amazon credit but hope that the process of trading in will happen before selling out....

I say good luck on getting a lower price; maybe they'll just keep printing more over time but I didn't feel like missing out yet again so I paid full price this time around.

I actually paid $30 for the first print, got a second print during a B2G1, and I'm still paying full price for print #3 so I can finally play it.

Pre-ordered about 3 weeks ago, got an email yesterday that it will be shipping soon!

Never played this before so I'm pretty excited.

Also:

I haven't played this yet but from what I've read online at a lot of places including various RPG websites, this is the definitive RPG on DS and one of the best overall in the last 5 years.

I doubt that this will ever drop that low, so I suggest you get it while you can.

My copy naturally came in stock right after my Gamestop had a copy shipped over from another store (and by the time I got it, it was "Shipping soon" and too late to cancel) So now I'm going to wind up having two copies. I dunno if I should hold onto the reprint sealed copy from Amazon, or return/sell it (I'm leaning towards holding onto it in case it gets rare again later)

that was in the past... you be lucky to get 20 to 25 out of one without the cd now .


ALSO i would not be sticking the new reprint into the cd outer box and soundtrack and saying you have a NEW SEALED FIRST PRINT on ebay cause people will file a dispute and you will lose it all

I went ahead and got a copy as soon as I saw that it was in stock again.

Having missed the game twice already, I wasn't taking any chances this time.

I just don't see it getting that rare again after a reprint. Even after it goes OOP again I don't think used copies will sell over retail, but who knows for sure depending on how big the reprint is.

I saw it was now in stock at Amazon and ordered today.

you completely misread what i said slidecage lol. im not selling the reprint all i stated is before the reprint was released i sold a bunch of the carts etc..im opening the reprint to play and just stated that i got lucky and found a box/soundtrack at gamestop that will give me a complete 1st run set for my play collection.

wasnt just pointed at you i know a few people here at least locally have the outer box and music cd.. They have told me as soon as the reprint hits they are buying it and sticking it in the outer box and saying they have a first print sealed.

i had one as well (got it first day) but sold it before the reprint (cd only had 5 songs on it so wasnt worth keeping to me)

at least for me (before all ebay fees i got)

48.88 for game itself
27.05 for the outer box and music cd (found it after someone bidded on the game

75.93 total

got a used one off gamefly for 27 shipped

48.93 then say 10% ebay so ended up with around 41 buck profit dumping the first copy...
WOOOO I STINK
