Two Classic RPGs Get Reprinted, Average Price Cut In Half
If you're an RPG fan, you probably already experienced one - or both - of the following PS2 RPGs: Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne and Digital Devil Saga. But if you're a fan and missed them, you may have been trying to get a hold of a copy...and you would've realized that it was a very pricey endeavor.
Well, thanks to a reprinting by Atlus in April, these two great RPGs have now dropped in price by almost 50% on the resale market. According to VideoGamePriceCharts, Digital Devil Saga was going for about $75, but after the April 26 reprint, the price has now dropped 43% to $44 for the month of May. Prior to the end of April, Nocturne would've cost you about $97, but now has dropped 53% to an average price of $46. That's one hell of a drop, and RPG fans who missed out earlier should leap at the opportunity to secure a copy of both. We will recommend Nocturne, just because it was the first of the saga that came to North America and, in our opinion, the best.
When games get too rare, prices skyrocket, but a publisher can issue reprints to bring those prices down. Atlus is well known for not providing enough copies of new titles upon launch, and we're actually surprised at these reprints. We're definitely not complaining, though.
