    Good price though for people that just want to play these games.
    These are a few PS1 RPGs that I don't have. I held off on the for far too long and the prices went up. Still looking for the right deal but low bid auctions aren't common enough (when I'm looking).

    I guess that WA2 can be easily found for less than $10 complete, but that's about all I want to pay for each. The other two tend to try to go for more.

    After thinking about it I got every one of these games via trade. Snowboard Kids 2, Ocarina of Time (n64 grey cart) and Killer Seven for Wild Arms, Wild Arms 2 Demo and $50, Wild Arms 2 for a game I paid $2 at a thrift store for (Civ 2 PS1) and Legend of Dragoon as part of a bigger trade where I also got DQ5. They are all games I wouldn't really want to buy, especially in a physical store setting where PS1 RPGs tend to receive a big mark-up (some are worse than others, and it just depends on the store). All are very common. On ebay if you are patient and don't mind GH discs for LoD (it was an issue for me because of the disc art) you can get them all for $10 or less shipped easy.

    I pretty much have all the PSX Rpgs I want. The ones that I missed were priced way up, overpriced, like Hoshigami: Ruining Blue Earth was $EightyBucksplus, and I was like, uh, I am sitting here in front of Electronics Boutique, with one copy in the store, and I have to decide whether or not I want to buy/purchase it. I did. Ended up buying it, purchasing it, only to have a friend take it off my hands, so, *dusts off clapped hands on the PSX*.

    WiiU is cooler, because they're going way, way back into the storage vault for proper VideoGame r-right now. Earth Bound on the WiiU? Breath of Fire 2 Super NES edition? That's wellwerthit already. I bought a PlayStation 3 just so I can play my upgraded PSX classics on the new, standard hardware itself. I would gladly drop down for a new console for Backwards-compatability, IMMEDITATELy. Just to be able to play Wild ARMs, all the way back to Azure Dreams on the PlayStation 3, so cool. I even thought it out-loud in my head, ''Xenogears would be so much cooler, if...'' a lot of old classics helped out a lot by new hardware, in my-o.

    I hardly wish SEGA would drop-in on us again and be like, here's a system available through Amazon.com that lets you play your old classics. I would just dye of a heart start-up.

    Hoshigami PS1 version is $20-30 game. If you want to spend $40 you can get it all day, every day any time you want.

    But it's really kind of a crappy game. We passed on it at WD. I think I still have the evaluation gold disc they sent to us.

    Oh I agree, it's terrible. I wouldn't pay more than $10 for it. It doesn't help the game that there are so many better examples of the same genre on the ps1.

    It had a LOT of buzz when it was in development because of who was working on it, but once I actually PLAYED it, I was very, very, unimpressed. The game design was broken (imo) and the story and missions were not helping matters. We might have taken it if it was VERY cheap because I think I could have fixed or at least improved the more broken elements of its design, but Atlus was bidding and I wasn't getting into a bidding war over a mediocre game that would require lots of work to even make passable. So, I let go of the rope before the tug of war even started.

    Going into WD trivia territory again but was this a situation where it was one or the other? Like if you got Hoshigami would a different PS1 game not have been brought over? If that's the case there is definitely no WD PS1 title I would want to swap for Hoshigami.

    DBZ: Attack of the Saiyans (DS) for $19.99.

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listi...5214258&sr=8-1

    It has been going in/out stock for a while so it must have been reprinted. This game was pretty expensive at one point.

    Yeah Bamco won't leave money on the table if they think it's there. Every Tales game after Eternia has had multiple print runs.
