Yea. I think about how much money I spent. D; Two sections of that is almost all LRG stuff too. 

 

And then we have Axiom Verge and Velocity coming in October. :lol: And I haven't even gotten around to buying the JPN titles.

I try to play em. That's all I can tell you. lol. I just finished Dengeki Bunko. I need to return to Macross Delta Scramble and the Adventure Time game. 

 

But I understand what you're saying. My backlog is insane. I generally keep my games sealed until I decide to play em.

I'm clearing out my Vita collection... just a few games left to get rid of. Only keeping stuff I regularly play. Ended up with way too many I had hoarded. Down to two LRG titles to move, and a few normal releases... almost there! Now I just need to replace Rainbow Moon with a PS4 copy.

Problem with keeping them sealed is that they often go up in value by the time I get to play them.  Then I need to buy a used copy or a digital copy.

So all of a sudden Odin Sphere is at nearly every gamestop near me. Either it's a giant coincendence or perhaps GS sent some out?

Too bad they raised Used Price to $45. And New is $30. :lol:

They probably realized it'd be easier to dump them in stores at that price than having a ton of stock of it never going anywhere online.

 

All the stores near me do have them in stock as well used, lol.

I just want one copy of Ys Origin with the North American version on the cart. If LRG wasn't doing the game I'd be fine going with the Asia version. If the preorder art looks better I may opt for it, though usually I don't care that much about art since only the spine shows on my shelves anyway.

I agree with everyone else that the cover art for LRG's version of Ys Origin is fugly. I might preorder it if the variant is much better (it'd be hard to do worse honestly) rather than getting the CE. If the CE is gonna have ugly art, it defeats the point of getting it for me.

I like the cover with the tower, but not a big fan of the sides with the heads facing out. At least it's reversible :pray: Play Asia's cover is good too, but I still like the tower the most

Actually the only JP games I'm keeping are Miku ones, the IA one, and EDF. All but the IA one are out here too, and I have their US releases too... just those games I never get rid of. I think all of the other JP stuff sold except Tales of R or whatever it is. I didn't even want that one, it was cheap at a local store though sooo... I got it because I have a problem with buying games that are cheap.

Don't forget, back in the day Gamestop used to reprint rare and sought after games and sell them as used.  Back then you would be able to tell if there was a reprint by seeing a sudden influx of the formally hard to find title at every Gamestop in your local area.  I believe there was even a news article about it (think they may have worked with VGP on the reprints).  Anyway it wouldn't surprise me if they are now doing that with hard to find Vita titles, especially if they are selling them as used and jacking up the used price.

I'm pretty sure they still do this. Nier got a lot easier to find inside of GS after Nier: Automata released. Odin Sphere getting a reprint wouldn't surprise me.

 

On one hand it's kind of a crappy practice, on the other hand if they're still undercutting eBay scalpers I'm kind of okay with it. Copies of Odin Sphere were going for $60+ at one point, so GS just saved anyone trying to get a copy $20.

I would totally agree with this because it is rather odd that there is a increase in copies that can be found at GS and like Tothoro said its happened before (Dokapon Kingdom as well) but the thing that makes me think twice is that aren't a lot of GS eliminating Vita games?  So why go through the effort of reprinting a game for a system they are not going to sell anymore?

Usually when a rare Vita game shows up across most GS stores used it's because they converted new games to used.  It certainly made more sense to do this if the new versions sold for less than the used copies.

 

That said, I remember when GS suddenly got a lot of Shinobido 2 instock new out of no where.  Like, every store in my area suddenly showed stock when they had previously had none.  So I think some reprintings happen.  Not sure this late in the game that is what's going on.

They reprinted PS1 games long after everyone moved on.

There is a significant difference. The PS1 sold more than 100 million units. It had an absolutely massive install base, one of the largest in video game history. (it was eclipsed by its successor, the PS2, but it is still one of the most successful consoles ever) The Vita, by comparison, has one of the smallest install bases in video game history. Not THE smallest, but certainly on the lower end of the spectrum. The fact that games, and cartridges, no less, are still being produced for it is actually rather surprising.

Playing through Odin Sphere right now, late to the game I know but my Vita backlog is too large. I preordered it with GCU. This is easily one of my top three games on the Vita, joining the master ranks of P4G and Danganronpa. Without hesitation, I would list it higher than Dragon's Crown because Dragon's Crown is a tad bit too complex for the Vita, because the extra dimension of movement does make it too chaotic for the small screen imo.

I bought Odin Sphere when it finally got cheap enough to buy it (for a Vita game) and I finished it in June. Loved it. Can't wait for their next game to come out.
