    Well Namco did it right in America by releasing it at $30 (both the original and the sequel) as I know the first one sold reasonably well. It's pretty much guarenteed Chibi Robo will sell like ass.
    Mostly just play Nintendo 64. If you've got games PM me! Cart only.

    I'm not sure where the "not worth $50" comes from though as you're looking at over 20 hours of gameplay probably to complete it (from those I know who've beaten it). I'm on about 12 hours so far with a ranking of #4, but there's still lots more to go...

    And there's some interesting stuff in there... family disfunction? Divorce? Hardly kiddy stuff here me thinks. Plus talking frogs, a dog that hates you, eggs on patrol, a mummy in love, aliens, a woode pirate, a giant robot and the cutest flying lovable television ever made heh.
    It may be a 20 hour game, but its alot like Zelda Wind Waker was/is. Where most of that time comes from traveling back and forth (rather obviously) rather than doing missions/dungeons/quests and whatnot. I personally had no issues with it being 50 as i'm insane and pay that much for good and interesting games weither they are worth it or not. I just think that it being priced as high as it is shoots it out of a general populous that could actually like the game but would be put off by its price and not its quirkyness.

    Again, not that it matters, the major mags are mostly giving it alright scores and a fiddy buck price tag means R@R3 in the future for us collectors.
    Because it makes no attempt to be great, it is therefore extremely great.

    Mediocre ratings and a $50 may mean "ZOMGOBLLERS DA R4RZORz," but mediocre ratings, high price tag, and pitiful sales will likely result in a price drop. I wouldn't be suprised to see the game go down in price by about $20 within the next two months.

    Disney Party?

    Not as hard to find as the Disney Sports games, but definitely not a game I see everywhere.

    Yeah, but its a Nintendo published title. They've been really dragging in price drops. I remember waiting forever for Avalanche 1080 to drop.

    Actually the first one retailed in the US for $19.99. Only the sequel came out at $29.99.

    Someone mentioned that Geist may become rare in the future but I seriously doubt it. Chains like Toys R Us warehoused a massive number of them (and they're already on permanent clearance of $9.99 there). It's the Syphon Filter 3 of this generation.

    I wonder if an uncensored version of Hitman 2: Silent Assassin ever made it to the prototype phase? It must have since the PS2 and XBox versions actually came out in stores, the GC one coming out later only to change the content on "all" copies. I would think this would be the hypothetical holy grail of US releases if you're counting prototypes or betas.

    Ever since the game reached US stores it's had an MSRP of $19.99, I applied the price stickers myself. If you saw it being sold for more than that in the US then you got ripped off. :P

    I can guarantee that it was $20 with a scan of the receipt with the launch date. Second was $30.

    I agree that Geist will NEVER be rare. In the end, it will be the Perfect Dark of this generation. 5 years down the road, you will still have no problem buying a sealed copy for $5.

    I'm pretty sure that didn't happen with the cube. I'm also pretty sure that the PS2 one came out well before the Xbox and Cube ones did and as far as I know, only the PS2 one got dual releases. I've never seen the different text colors on any XBox versions and my eye catches stuff like that.

    Yep, I definately believe that too. There will be like 30 copies at TRU until 2010 or something.
    I just bought this game last sat, and am wondering if I should return it and wait for another price drop. Are they really only $9.99 at TRU now? Didn't notice it last time I was there at TRU.

    With the massive amount of Chibi Robos I've seen around my neck of the woods, I have a hard time thinking it's gonna become very obscure. I'm wondering, though, about Odama. I have a feeling this is gonna be getting a really low print run (and it too is appearantly going to retail for $50). I'll definitely be trying to snag that one as soon as humanly possible.

    It might be QUITE a while for TRU to drop anything below $9.99/8. You're better off spending an extra dollar or two to make sure that you have it, rather than hoping in another two years it will be available for 6 or 7 bucks.

    I just had thought that people were buying GEIST RIGHT NOW at tru for $19.99? I definately wouldn't wait a couple years just to get something a couple bucks cheaper.
    I was just stating since I just bought it for 20, why not save 10 bucks if Geist is only 10 right now. I'm definately not the penny pincher type like I know many are, far from it actually, I just buy so many games I do try and save when I can.

    Nope. The first Katamari game was $19.99 from the get go. That's half of the reason the game became as popular as it did.

    Dragon's Lair 3D here in the U.S. is a tuff find as far as I've seen, the few copies that I've see in the last 2 years have been in pretty rough shape.

    Yeah you don't see too many copies of it. I also believe there is atlease 2 different boxarts for it, one with a yellow circle that has some writing in it, and another without the yellow circle(my copy does not.)
