What an amazing price. Gonna buy 2 to keep sealed

Anyone have any codes for zavvi?

Great deal - cheapest previously was about £28. Hopefully this price doesn't mean that there was another print run of this title.

Nice used £5 off and reward points so got it for £13.75!

Trade-in at Amazon for £25.80 in gift card balance, if anyone is interested (_;)

this is a reprint...

What a great price, this game is always £35 everywhere. Nice one.

The game has gone back for re-manufacture. It lowers the resale price for those that keep track of things like that.

ordered 2, thanks

Do online releases of games lower the value of physical copies too? eg. Tales of Vesperia getting released on Live etc.

Is this a second reprint or is this a clearance of the first reprint?

I'm pretty certain they are identical so it doesn't really matter. Not just the game obviously but also the version number and contents.

No, not really. Niche Japanese stuff like RPG's and shmups are never really affected by digital re-releases. It might shave a tenner off on occasion.

Yeah, any dialogue changes etc will have been done when it went form PS2 to 3DS, no one's going to make a fortune but you'll double your money in 6 months I expect.

Tales of Vesperia actually did drop quite a bit after its digital release, because you lose the people that just want to play the game. In other words, the market gets smaller.

Sorry. Should've been clearer. I meant - Is this a second fresh reprint of the 3DS title or is it still part of the first 3DS reprint that happened a few months ago? If this is a second reprint, then the market value will probably drop like a stone. If not, then there's probably some collector value in it.

It didn't. It was a subsequent reprint that effected the price. It was still hitting £60 last year dispite being on G.O.D

Ta!

In terms of reprints they are identical, I have a first run copy and a reprint copy, no difference at all.
They will probably start doing more reprints for the Tales Series as they've gained alot of popularity, so I'd expect another run of Vesperia's, a few run's of Graces f and a couple more run's of this, there was a point sealed copies of TotA was fetching £90 on eBay.

Has anybody's been despatched yet?
