    Default Kuon on the Rise

    Has anyone else noticed that Kuon for PS2 has been steadily going up in price? Complete copies are going around the $40 range online I wanted to pick up and i've been having some trouble. Do you think that it will become uncommon like Rule of Rose? BTW if you are looking to purchase, gamestop still sells Kuon for $5. I checked all around me without any luck unfortunately I envy someone who can find a complete copy for that price

    Last week, I walked into a Gamestop that had a copy sitting on the counter ready for pricing! It was missing the manual, but I bought it anyway. Any later and it would have fell victim to an old fashioned case gutting.

    I noticed the price has begun to climb too. Dark Souls probably has something to do with interest, what with being a From Software production and all.
    In Heaven, everything is fine.

    Nice going! too bad there wasn't a manual, but that's life. I hope From Software gets the recognition they deserve, the Echo Night series surprised me in a good way

    For those wanting to check if Gamestop has it, see online if any stores have it in stock. It's nice that the US Gamestop has this feature working, it doesn't work right on the Canadian site as most games aren't available to look up.

    The gutting thing seems to be a US only policy, I've seen that when I visited the states but no stores here seem to do that. There are plenty of worthless PS2/Xbox/Gamecube games still in their original cases, for those missing the cases they're kept in generic labeled cases so they still take up floor space.

    Gamestops here in the US pretty much gut all games $6 or less. They just shove all the discs in cheap sleeves and put them in a bin with a bunch of unwanted sports games from 2002. It's sad really

    I was in an EB Games/Gamestop today and a different one yesterday, plenty of boxed sports games for $0.99 or $1.99. Lots of boxed $4.99 games too. When I was last in the states the one Gamestop I visited had a print out with all the cheaper games listed, the print out was just left in the same section as the other games. It's really not like that here, and I can see why there's more complaints about Gamestop in the US.

    Most games are cheaper in the US stores but I know that Fatal Frame is priced $2.99 here while it's still $29.99 in the US, if only I could find a copy somewhere. This is one of the many games that isn't listed on the Canadian site.
