Whatever it is, I am interested in this :



It has been stated that it is Japan sales only, similar to WA2 earlier in Feb this year. So.....does anyone know of a way to get this game? Looks interesting (especially on the account that Mana looks ridiculously cute with her twintails....no, I am not a lolicon).

I've always been very satisfied with my orders from them (and I love some of the markdowns they have), though their payment process freaked me out the first time I ordered from them. So since I happened to stumble upon this, I might as well explain it for you .

Once you order, they "confirm" it with an e-mail, and after all your products are ready for shipment, they will send you a bill indicating the shipping cost and the total cost and ask you to send a payment via PayPal (this is the strange part). Make sure to follow their instructions - I always have, so I'm not sure how they handle missteps, and you could have troubles if you don't (most notably use the same e-mail to sign up for AmiAmi that you use for PayPal). Once you've paid, they usually send some sort of response within one day, and they usually have it shipped by then, too.

(A few extra notes: PayPal's "exchange rate" tends to be ~5 yen lower than the actual rate, which is a bit annoying, but it's better than the markup some other companies will force on you, and if you want the cheaper shipping you must indicate it in the "comments" section when you make the order)

Hopefully this is helpful .

When did you last ordered something from them? The last time I ordered something there was an actual option to change shipping, but it's a fairly recent change, so...

Anyway, I personally have had no problem with them, and have several orders coming from them in the next few months, with a lot more things that I plan to buy from them. The discounts are very very nice, though as ameskitty said, Paypal does add a bit to the cost.

I would like to know where I could buy Ever 17. Is there by any chance... any places that sell it? With the most reasonable price for something as rare as this? I would appreciate the best possible prospects... If any.

Regardless, Thank you.

I'm looking for a copy of the PS3 version of Tales of Vesperia. But everywhere I look, asking price is in the USD$70~ range. Is there any possibility that the price on this item will lower anytime soon? Sigh. Namco Bandai. Why?

HimeyaShop has both the regular edition and the limited edition. According to them, the games work on non-Japanese PS3s, though last time I checked, Sony didn't get any more lenient on region locking, so I dunno about that. There's also Amazon.jp, but you'll have to get a proxy to ship the item to you, since Amazon.jp doesn't send video games abroad.

P.S. The limited edition comes with an artbook and the game's original soundtrack.

Unfortunately it has been out of print for a while now even though J-list managed to snag a limited stock that has now run dry and there's going to be no more available unless someone else picks up the license.

The chances of that are extremely slim unless yesasia (or some other site) decides to drop the price themselves (although I've now lost my trust in them after I ordered ar tonelico 3 from them and they cancelled it even though I ordered it just before golden week started).

There are no region locks on the PS3 (or the PSP) when it comes to games so it would work on a non Japanese PS3.

I might go second hand then if i can find it for a reasonable price. Really not happy with Namco Bandai this gen. They don't deserve my money.

You have to remember everything is expensive in Japan so it's not just the fault of just one company.

I don't hate them for the pricing. I hate them for their localization decisions. Tales of Vesperia eternal exclusivity with MS outside of Japan? I find it hard to believe.

Most of the localization is already done, this is Vesperia their biggest Tales product to date. And yet they're not releasing it on the PS3 outside of Japan? Mind-boggling. As far as I understand the game was partly funded by Microsoft in exchange for temporary exclusivity like Eternal Sonata.

What games are you talking about? If you're talking about all Japanese games, then definitely, unfortunately no.

Well, depending on who's making the RPG, there could be a high chance of a localization. e.g. if a company affiliated with Nintendo makes an RPG, chances are high unless the game is on Nintendo's Ban List (Mother 3 ). If you mean those RPG/eroge games, then chances of localization are low.

Where's the best place to pre-order Pokemon Black or White? Playasia seems to be really expensive.

They're about $5 cheaper on Yesasia, so that's where I preordered.
