Being EA I figured a reprint was unlikely, but also, it was like $300 and I'm not that big of a gambler.
    I was thinking the same way but I think it was like 500 each by the time I saw them. No way I was going to gamble on a really bad EA sports game for 500 even if super limited. Always wondered the exact number of these that made it in the wild?

    LOL holy ****. Guess it would have turned out pretty well. But hindsight is always 20/20 I suppose.

    Yeah some DS stuff has gotten pretty nuts for sure. I figured bootlegs would impact it somewhat but I guess not.

    Didn't realize that game had shot up that much.

    I bought it way back around the time it came out. Its an incredibly well done Quake style FPS with polygon graphics. Really cool to see this pulled off on the DS. Any FPS game back in the day that made it to handheld was impressive to me.

    For whatever reason I no longer have the game and kinda want it again. Oh well.

    Wow thank you @storino for bringing this game back to my attention

    I checked Gamestops website to see if any in my area had the game and one did! Just picked it up for less than $7!

    Im mostly happy because I know I got rid of the game years ago and wanted to play it again so this is great. Maybe I can get a cheap box/manual off ebay down the road.

    I was shocked to even find one at Gamestop. I have something like 20 Gamestops in the Buffalo area and just the one popped up within 100 miles.

    C.O.R.E. isn't that expensive. Infinite Space still doubles it even after the reprint.

    And other bad stuff I've never heard of:

    Higher stuff too.
