Dragon's Crown has finally dropped a little more in price, after holding its value for a long time on both platforms.

Amazon - Vita version $19.99
Amazon - PS3 version $25.99

Gamestop - Vita version $19.99
Gamestop - PS3 version $29.99

New copies for both platforms at Gamestop are getting kind of scarce, I was able to pick up an extra Vita copy (already have the game) at one local Gamestop, but many stores just have one gutted copy (or no copies) for both platforms. Amazon's PS3 copies have been selling quickly at the new lower price, last I checked they only had two PS3 copies but "more on the way" (supposedly). You may need to view other sellers on Amazon's PS3 link to find Amazon's version, since they temporarily ran out of stock.

Come on Best Buy price match! My GCU is the only thing making me not immediately jump on this. I've been waiting sooo long for this to drop to $20 or less. Missed out on the one time Newegg had it on sale for $20. Never even saw the thread till someone pointed it out to me in a thread weeks later. Apparently was gone in just a few minutes. No surprise there.

 

This had to have just dropped. I looked maybe a couple hours ago to see the current pricing out of curiosity. This is the only Vita game I want that I don't have yet.

Best Buy never even carried this in stores, just online.  They seem to be very slow to drop the price, I doubt they bought too many copies of the game.  $20 is a great price for the Vita physical version, although they did have a digital sale for less than $20 recently on PSN.  I already owned both versions (physical) but got an extra Vita version to keep sealed, and will get an extra PS3 copy when I get a chance.

They had them in my local Best Buys for a few months after release. I would have bought the digital version when it was on sale, but I have a fairly strict $15 cap on digital games. I only break it for occassional digital only games because you never know if/when it'll drop lower.

 

It doesn't have to be available in-store for the website to match the price. I managed to reach elite status at Best Buy last year thanks to my dad buying a new TV through my account so I'd get free shipping on it so that's not a factor for me.

None other than the same for most any platform: feed the developers and not Gamestop. Used works just the same as new. As long as the box isn't trashed it's virtually indistinguishable.

I picked up a complete PO copy at GS when it was reported in the SMTIV thread on Weds.  $14.xx with CA taxes.  Nice deal.

Grabbed a complete (used) Vita copy from Gamestop yesterday for $15ish + tax after the birthday coupon.  I was going to get a new copy as the same store also had one, but I would rather save the $5.  I bet the copies dry up from Gamestop quickly, so I would grab one while you can.

Still waiting for $10 on this or just free on PS+.  Maybe we're finally getting closer...

I imagine it would be a PS+ first (or maybe I am just hoping). I have the disc based, but I will take a free download.

 

Those who would buy this used over a new copy if you had a chance- just by the damn new one. Like the above post stated, feed the dev not Fuck en GS.

 

But buy it whatever option is available.

Thanks OP, snagged one! I don't care if it comes to the PS+ IGC relatively soon, I prefer physical copies whenever possible.

Agreed. Even though it's possible to see it next month, I had to grab a copy at Best Buy with a PM. Thanks for the topic.


Yes! I am in a signature! :applause:

Just received my copy from Amazon today. Surprisingly they sent me one that is shrink wrapped with the art book. I believe this is only for those who preordered the game from amazon. Kinda surprise they still have them in stock.

Plays better on Vita anyway. The touch looting trumps scrolling around with the stick to click each piece.

I ordered one of each version from Amazon, will report back about the art book when I get them. PS3 version was OOS when I ordered, so I doubt it will have one (they're restocking). But there were 3 more Vita copies left after my order, so it may still be included with that copy.

You don't have to click on ps3 anymore, you just have to move the cursor over an area. They patched alot of stuff including making the wizard op with charge and adding a harder difficulty.

The vita version certainty plays a lot better than it used to be, but it still suffers from some frame drops. Especially in the Tower of Mirage.  :???:

Gamefly has the PS3 version for $17.99. 

Last time they had it at this price it went pretty fast.

Oh, that's the missing link. The first guy who reported getting the artbook probably also ordered the Vita version whereas most people would want it for PS3. Thanks Fry.

Has anyone else received the art book with the PS3 version?  This price drop was very temporary as it's now $29.  If the art books are gone I'm going to hold out for $19.99 which was my original plan with this game.

I ordered the Vita and PS3 versions a few days ago, but haven't received them yet.  The PS3 version was OOS and no shipping date given, the Vita version was in stock but hasn't shipped yet (slow FSSS).  Will report back on the artbook, but I really don't expect to get one since Amazon is restocking that version, and probably won't get more artbooks.  I am hoping to get the Vita version with art book since that never went out of stock, but who knows.  Others here have gotten them.  But Amazon only shows 3 copies left right now for Vita (or is that a 3-copy limit per order, who knows), so these may come without art books in the near future as well.

I just clicked all the links in the OP and all prices are still valid.

I just received my copies from Amazon (that I ordered on the 20th) and the Vita version did not come with the artbook but the PS3 version did come with the artbook shrinkwrapped to it.

I'll report back when my Vita copy rolls in tomorrow. Hoping that artbook is included, but I'm fairly optimistic that it will.
