This has always been the price everytime I see it. But I do agree It's great, playing it right now and loving every second of it.

Loved this when it came out. Coulda sworn I paid $20 for it 5-6 years ago. Enjoy that FFXII demo that comes with it. :P

Meanwhile, DQVII 3DS remake on the way, hope it comes stateside...

I wish Sony would pump out some HD remakes of RPGs. I'd love to play this one.

An HD version of DQVIII wouldn't really do much. It's cell shaded, so it still looks great on HDTVs and I believe it supported widescreen out of the box.

I guess this deal is okay for collectors who want a sealed copy, but I can find it used with the original case for around $10 all day.

Has the price of this game been going up? I remember seeing sub - $15 prices on DQVIII (new) for years .

Sadly I don't have a BC PS3... :( I would love a PSV playable version of this.

Should make it a ps2 classic for sure- one of my favorite RPGs of all time and don't think there's any other game I've clocked so many hours in

For me that was about an hour or two into the game. The excessive random battles... yuck...

I stopped enjoying it and beat it anyway. Waste of 80 hours with no one but my self to blame :cry:

I never did understand the acclaim so many people gave it. I didn't think it was good at all. In fact, I thought it was a average to bad JRPG. The cheese factor in the characters was annoying as shit to me (as well as the terrible acting).

Yep I'm with you. I never got into it, either. Very strange how much love it received. I feel the same way about Persona 4.

It probably is. My wife bought it as a birthday present a couple of years ago, and that is what I have. Still haven't played it yet...

Completely disagree, it looks absolutely stunning running on...hrm...what am I allowed to say here? "Better hardware"? ;)

And you have to like old-school JRPGs or you won't enjoy the game, obviously, but if you do it's easily one of the best around.

DQ8 wasn't revolutionary, but it was incredibly charming and had tons of personality. I kind of lost steam toward the end, but I enjoyed almost all of the 105 or so hours I spent with it.

Agreed. It would look stunning with and HD upgrade.
Much like Wind Waker does.

This game is already amazing! The cel-shaded art gives this game most of its charm, so IMO an HD remake is unnecessary. I played this for over 150 hours and loved every second of it. The only way they could make it better is to add more content so I could play it longer.

Me too! The game is great I wouldn't mind playing it again.

I guess this deal is okay for collectors who want a sealed copy, but I can find it used with the original case for around $10 all day.


To me it would, it doesn't really look great on my hdtv.

My favorite game. You owe it to yourself to play this.

I'm 34 years old, and damned it, I want my freaking half-undressed anime chick.

+1. This was my first Dragon Quest game, but also my favorite PS2 game. Yes, random battles do suck, but I feel that anyone who likes JRPGs owes it to themselves to at least give it a shot.

I actually ordered this last week and it showed up today. I was surprised to see it's the original release with the FF12 demo, still all sealed up.

Playing it on my PS3(60gb phat ftw!) Graphics still look decent considering it runs at 720x480 res. ;)
