$1000000000

Post by Takai Tenshi » Mon Dec 14, 2009 5:42 pm

Why must the games cost so much!? WHY I ASK YOU!? WHY!?

I'm getting so depressed about this. I bought Infection, and never got around to getting the other three, and now they are sooo expensive!

I know that they are not in production anymore but COME ON! $200 for volume 4!?

now I have only infection and G.U. vol. 1

should I rush to amazon and buy the rest of G.U. now or should I like, Wait?
is it safe to wait?

They're not that expensive. Even new, Quarantine is available for half what you said on Amazon, the first place I checked. For used it's a lot less, but if you want a game new you should probably buy it when it's new...

Why don't you use eBay? If you really want a brand new Quarantine, they've them at 99USD. I'm pretty picky too about my games, and how I buy them, but 98% of my gaming collection was bought locally from Trade-In stores. I think my Q cost me 65, came with the //Liminality and manual, and was in basically perfect condition. So yeah, if you haven't tried shopping local I would do that.

Edit : For the record, Mutation and Outbreak are rather cheap, even new, sealed in the box.

I bought all games for about $80-100 o-O I didn't buy them online though, i looked for it in shops around here...and sure, it took me like a WHOLE YEAR OF SEARCHING AROUND to find them, and i didn't find them all at once (first Infection, then Mutation, then Outbreak and Quarantine together)...Infection and Mutation were used too, but still, they were like at $25, with game, original case, instruction manual, Liminality disc, grunty on the side of the case, etc.

So yeah, either use eBay or look for them in shops. It's most likely you'll find them used if you go for the latter, but if it's complete with the original case and Liminality and all, you should definetly go for it.

GameStop online has all the original .hack games, pre-owned, for under $30 each. I think that's a pretty good steal, even if you can't get it factory sealed. Unfortunately finding the games brand spankin' new is harder these days; I was lucky to find 'em new online three and a half years ago, but... like I said, that was three and a half years ago.

Exactly. No use looking for them all sealed and such if you don't want to spend a lot. That's the whole reason people keep them sealed for so long, to sell them at a higher price.

I keep thinking I got QUARANTINE for $60, but a friend of mine kindly notified me that when I first got it, I said I paid $40 for it. It's almost a steal, considering it was basically brand new (game manual, Liminality episode and I'm pretty sure that the disc itself was immaculate...).

And I'd advise you don't look on Amazon - recently I saw .hack//G.U. Volume 1 there for $200, and .hack//G.U. Volume 2 from the same guys for $16. I got my copy of Volume 1 new for like $20. A full digit less than its price on Amazon...

Man I'm kind of happy that I still have my old games but if you look for the right places it should not be that hard to find them but don't pay That much for them or you'll be wasting a lot of money (I don't even have that much) I don't think anyone would buy a game that much.

Gamestop is atrocious. You're better off searching through Amazon.

I got ripped for .hack//QUARANTINE, but it was worth to complete my collection. <3 $60 on Ebay, +50$ shipping. (Yeah, the shipping gave me a heart attack x_X)

Indeed it hurted, but money came back fast. I don't mind it. I got all the rest quite cheap. .hack//QUARANTINE was the biggest problem.
