Tales of Symphonia Chronicles for $29.99

Just checking Best Buy as I often do and saw that ToSC dropped to $19.99 online. Cannot confirm in-store. Amazon has yet to price match. The price after GCU would be $15.99.

 

EDIT: If link does not work, search BB for "symphonia" as "Tales of symphonia" does not generate the ToSC result for some reason. It is worth noting that the game is $10 on PSN for PS+ memebers until 3 PM EST or so as part of the Golden Week sale which ends today. If you wanted a physical copy, like me, this is the cheapest the retail product has been as far as I know.

Should be $10 on PSN for a few more hours as well if you don't mind digital.

My local BB had the CE still at regular price ($80 after GCU). Should I get it or just standard?

 

EDIT: I meant Tales of Xillia CE.

I just took my copy back to BB so I can get it $10 digital. This game is dropping quick. Now if only FF X get a sale soon so I can price adjust.

search for 'Symphonia' on the BB site.  It comes up. 

 

Xillia is also on "sale" for $31.99 before GCU.  Not a terrible price with GCU if you want the disc, but it's been cheaper.

Well, scratch my plan--$10 base value at GS means I might as well just keep my copy. Oh well, I don't mind.

Thanks for the tip! I've had my eye on this, as I've never played a Tales game, but heard wonderful things about these two...can't beat $16.00 after GCU. Even if the in-store price is different, you can always order for store pickup, or they should price-match their website in store. And heck, if they won't, go to Target or Walmart and do it.

Wish they remade this instead of simply porting it.  I still have the original versions, and apparently the only addition is the Japanese voices.

I know, I know. I was scrambling to pick a sixth game at that time, and ToSC was what I chose. :fridge:

Either Namco overproduced these or the appetite for Tales games have severely diminished. All the recent Tales games have been less than $20 frequently.

I can't see this getting cheaper physically...so i got one. thanks OP!

 

Was looking at the Target clearance thread and apparently Target also has this on a temporary price cut for 19.99 if you want to look there.

Damnit I was going to get this off the PSN store but I have a feeling I'll be selling my PS3 soon because if I don't my backlog will keep growing and I really don't have the time to knock them out.

 

But I still want this game.

 

I know it makes no sense @.@

I think the $10 digital PSN sale helped push the price down (temporarily)

This to me is worth it, but the re-release is based on the japanese PS2 version and it's changes are summarized here:

They will do a price match for the base price, but problem is they can't apply the gamer's unlocked discount at the same time.  So pretty much your only option to get the gamer's unlocked discount with sale price is buying it from the website.

Is it just me or did the Tales series turn into the CoD of the JPRG realm?

Namco must have really overestimated the demand for it. Symphonia is still my favorite in the series but I don't think it was ever that popular, even though it sold well on the GC. Dawn of the New World probably didn't help matters either, since it sucks.

It does seem like Namco has a lot of Tales games in the pipeline. It seems like every week, I hear about some new Tales game in development or being announced.
