Is that really true? My brother came home with it for only $25AUD a few weeks ago, and he told me th same thing. It's actually quite common here in Aus, or around where I live at least.


I've seen used PSX copies being sold for 500$ and more at some places. Considdering that the discs are indeed fragile and the slightest scratch can ruin them, it'd be a pretty big gamble to buy an unsealed copy of the game for that much. Of course sealed copies are being sold for even more insane prices...

heh, i re-bought a sealed copy of FFVIII like 6 months ago for like 30 bucks (a bit less perhaps, cant remember exactly)

ps one games are rather still cheap over here, dunno why...

so that's what it feels like to be ignored..T.T

ok, ok. a serious choice of a game for your sister would be Ar tonelico: melody of Elemia. the story element would surely intrigue her, even if the main char is male and he gets to end up with 1 of three girls, this game is mroe than suited for girls i think. the battle system is amazing and incredibly fun, and plug in some decent sound output and she's in for a treat.

soooo...no one googled Rez?

Because Square reprinted a bunch of greatest hit versions for FF8, and FF8 is not as popular as it's predecessors.

But yes....Valkyrie Profile 1 is notorious for being 100 or so USDs on eBay and such. Friend got a used copy for 130 dollars. You COULD get the Remake for PSP, same game with pretty CG movie extras. Yes, in the United States jRPGs are also notorious for getting extremely expensive over time when word gets out how great they were what not. Disgaea was like 100 bucks till Atlus reprinted some. Atlus titles all become rare and sought after for some goddamn reason, while in Europe if they even manage to reach there it's not so pricy and you could go to a rental store and find a used copy cheap. Recently on eBay a sealed copy of Chrono Trigger for the SNES sold for 1,2000 USDs on eBay...and before that I saw a sealed copy of FF3(FF6) for SNES sold for 600 dollars...if only my copies were still sealed. Well that's the U.S for ya.

Aww come on.. Dont cry.. XDDD

alright.. I did (days back).. but honestly.. it looks like another version of dancedance/guitarhero/beatmania... More of a multiplayer game... And as i said in my previous posts..

I dont wanna be dragged out from my room just because she rather play with me on multi than against the computer... T____T


EDIT :
- I got myself a PC version of FF8 (Squall & Rinoa) for S$49.95. I think.. about... US$30?? Yeah... But this was about a year back... Sadly.. Never did finish it tho.. Got to the final disc, but my laptop required repairs... *shiku shiku*

FF8 huh, well you're not missing much. Beaten it twice...and I still hate it. Last boss and ending was meh.

And Atvaark...Rez...I'm buying it for a girl and that...peripheral.

It's number 1. Ha, of course Rez is a bitch to find and is expensive here in the United States. Expect paying almost 100 USDs for it. Of course they're releasing it for X Box 360 Live.
