    this is no surprise.many atlus/workingdesigns games are underproduced and disgaea has popularity beyond its current production so it would make sense for atlus to re-release it.thats why i always get these more non-mainstream rpg's right away when they are released.if mastiff is the same as atlus when it comes to underproduction maybe la pucelle will also get a re-release down the road.

    Also, if you send in your Disgaea registation after May 25th then you will get an art book that has previously unreleased, in North America, artwork from the original artists for the game.

    I haven't heard anything about a limited production run from Mastiff, and considering the popularity of the game just locally in our EB's district, I'd be *very* surprised if Mastiff didn't milk it for all it is worth.

    I wondered if/when Atlus was ever going to do a dual run on any of their games; the concept always made a lot of sense to me - have a ton of people drooling for the game, shooting the price wayyy up on Ebay, then throw out more copies to the retailer. If it's a good game (which Atlus generally localizes), then it'll be snatched up. Hype in this case == good for RPGamers.

    I am actually looking for a bunch of Atlus games, some including Persona 1 and 2. i heard they were really cool and i thought i'd try them out. There's a lot of other games i want to get from Atlus too, including Disgaea, but it's hard to find them. Even on E-bay, there are only like 3 to 5 Persona games on there but they are horribly overpriced. I haven't searched Disgaea yet but i will soon.

    I've heard a lot of great things for La Pucelle so that makes me want Disgaea even more.

    Do you mean before May 25th, because i would expect them to want people to do it before the re-release comes out instead of during? i don't know.

    If this is true though, mabye i will buy Disgaea off of E-bay instead of waiting for the re-release so i can get the art book. Plus, if the artwork ends up pretty bad or something i don't like, i can always sell it on E-bay to people who will actually enjoy it.

    Don't you think you might have it confused? Since the Disgaea is officially going to be released the 25th in Europe for the first time. Perhaps you read it wrong and it will not be re-released? I have no idea myself, but it seems more logical.

    Oh well...Murphy's Luck. I just bought a copy on E-Bay for a pretty penny since every online store I looked at was sold out or backordered...

    While it may be true that the re-release shares the same date as the European release (haven't heard about that, I usually don't keep track of European release dates), I am quite sure that it is a full fledged re-release. Read the press release for yourself smile.gif

    WTF... I was just over at microcenter the other day and they had like 10 brand new copies of disgaea just sitting on the shelf. Eh... I bought it on release day anyhow, so I don't care.

    I'm sorry, I didn't realize giving more people a chance to enjoy a [theoretically] great game is a bad thing. Shame on Atlus.

    Tell that to those with first releases of Xenogears. In fact, if I recall, the re-release had some changes from the original. Some censorships. It's still a collectors item.

    Suikoden 2, I believe, has hit the presses a couple times and still remains a hot item.

    Just because someone re-releases something does not mean collectors automatically miss out and if you do, so WHAT? I thought the point of games was for everyone to enjoy them, not for you to collect and put in little glass cases for display.

    If you're referring to the non-GH version, there is no difference. In fact, I heard it wasn't even a re-release, just that they had some extra copies in a warehouse somewhere. They don't re-release games at full (or MORE) price years later.

    Of course, if you're talking about the GH version, of course that sucks.

    Not recently, obviously.

    I saw one once for over $300.

    Red Shift:

    Just because some complete morons were willing to pay 300 dollars for a single game, does not mean that was ever an average selling rate for what it went for on Ebay. A hundred-hundred fifty might be generous for the average rate those things have ever gone for.

    Who stares at all these 'collectors' who can bare to part with their prized gaming collections.

    yes everyone should get to enjoy a great game but you cant ignore the potential of the secondary market.its simple demand over supply.if a game is "rare" and very popular it can be sold for over the original price for profit.i've done this many times as an ebay seller.you cant blame people for the money they are going to miss because of a re-release.i just barely got my extra copy of final fantasy tactics sold before the re-release,and i was sweating a little...but yes,there are too many people who buy a game and think they have something that not many people have and just love that feeling.more of a "haha i got it you dont" kind of thing.i dont agree with this kind of thinking either.

    Companies are really only doing themselves a disservice if they don't re-release a game that wasn't released initially in sufficient quantities. They don't make any money off the secondary market, only off of new sales. It's in their interest to have you buying from them... not paying really high prices on ebay.

    Anyhow, I'm a pack-rat. Once I have a game, I never let it go (unless it really sucks, and even then sometimes I regret it if I sell it). You could call me a collector, but I don't really care if it appreciates in value. I'm happy just to have a copy.
