I have noticed quite a few 3DS games in Asda for £5 each lately - RE Revelations, RE Mercs, SF4, Mario Tennis, Splinter Cell & Ghost Recon. Seems a good price for RE Revelations in particular.

I'm not sure I'd bother with Mercs and Splinter Cell, but the rest are well worth having at that price.

^^^ Don't have the space anymore for huge boxes like that but if I did then it might be a different story. Also, the fact that I probably can't put £80 aside for it is a big factor. Might get the game on its own at some point though as it looks nice.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Placed my preorder for that Bravely Default, not sure if I'll regret it but I've got a lot of time to think about it and cancel at least. I really want it but it's just the cost of it that's the issue, but I don't want to take the risk of having it sell out and have the prices sky rocket.

Also preordered Hakuoki Memories of Shinsengumi Limited Edition, not even sure what it is about at all (I've read a ton of different things) but it looked fairly decent from what I could see. From what I could gather some were saying it has some sort of like dating/relationship element with all the guys in the game and others were saying it's like a visual novel where you choose your options I'm not sure either way but It's another one I thought in my head might have a limited release so thought best not risk missing out.

I was going to preorder that one from Shopto who are saying that it has art cards & a soundtrack whereas at GAME, they're saying it comes with an artbook, fan & towel. :o

When the starting price for a video game is £80 that it might sky rocket should probably be the least of your worries! Still, given what's happened with Xenoblade, I dare say that a few people will be sensing an investment opportunity here, so that might well happen.

Been really, really looking forward to that game and want the stuff in the box, so yes.

Before anybody thinks I've lost my marbles, I've got £71.04p in credit with them from reward points waiting to be used up. :wink:

Look at what happened with the Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch - Wizard's Edition on PS3.....

Oh yeah, I'm not buying it as an investment opportunity or anything it would purely be for just my collection. But it's one of those games I can see selling out as I'd imagine there will be limited quantities and the types of people that buy it I can see holding on to it. Still I'm sure I'll get my moneys worth out of it.

On a slightly less expensive note I saw this game is out in a couple of weeks and it warmed my heart.
