Well then you're not playing it. 80,000 copies were made, no more. Those 80,000 have been bought. Perhapse with the new line of tactical RPG's, another shipment will be released. But don't hold your breath.

This is a common case of, you snooze, you lose

$44.99 if you dont mind getting it pre-owned. (and no box or instruction manual:D)

Is there a place to find out how many of a game have been made?

I didn't have the money at the time to get this game. Too bad for me.

dude, thats a rip off 44 dollars for used and no manual and stuff! well there used to be alot of copies around i saw, but i didnt know much about this game. Blah , looks like im never gonna be able to get it lol. and now im thinking...La Pucelle tactics is coming out soon, will it be "rare" really fast? and i dont wanna buy it rite wen it comes out cuz i jus bought Jak 2 and DDRMAX 2 each for 15 buks and i jus bought Kingdom Hearts Greatest HIts version for 20... making me feel guilty for even thinking of getting Disgaea or La Pucelle tactics which i would gladly like to own

btw, are they gonna have any more copies someday?

look at this :too mad: this is from a Disgaea auction on ebay and wat this guy says

Hello,you are bidding on a mint RPG game called Disgaea. It is rare and very difficult to find.In fact, in most retail stores they are out and the main company is not producing any more! This auction is for a mint copy, no scratches or bends in the item. Basically the same as new. Reserve is held at $40 and shipping is set at $5, shipping only in the U.S.Thanks for looking and happy ebaying! ^_^

WHAT? you think its funy that the company is not producing anymore and i have to bid like 50 buks jus to get this?

You could always import

As opposed to paying $50 at a store?

I didn't know this game is rare now. I'm glad I got my copy in time.:bigsmile:

This is essentially why I've pre-ordered La Pucelle and will pre-order similar games. You know quanities are going to be limited.

Wait till in a year the game is even harder to find and sells on ebay for 100 bucks. :p

MoMo
05-03-2004, 05:32 PM
how many copies of La Pucelle tactics are they going to ship out? how come they stopped production of Disgaea if it is a hit in US and we demand more?

Sinful Sam
05-03-2004, 08:39 PM
Well it's a possibility they'll re-release more in the future but don't hold your breath. Many developers know that 2D games don't sell in western area so they don't make a huge amount of them.

what got a better review, La Pucelle Tactics or Disgaea?

man this game is still soo easy to find..if your willing to buy from an online site ..

http://www.ncsxshop.com/cgi-bin/shop/scan/MM=9f3da9973e2ddd8f2f098507a3b8d4ab:20:29:10?mv_se ssion_id=eWChuLEn&mv_pc=298&mv_more_ip=1&mv_nextpage=results&pf=sql&sid=4&cid=5&alpha_id=1

or

www.therage.com has it as well

the rage costs like $59 and ncsx costs $49 though...so thats around 50 bucks brand new sealed copies though

SpaceManSpiff
05-04-2004, 03:24 AM
You know for sure those are brand new, sealed, If so Ill pick it up.

Yeah man.. ncsx.com is an really good/reliable site and i ordered Disgea from them ($49.00) last month and it came on time brand new and sealed. Last time I checked (yesterday) they still have some copies=)...if you want to be sure if it is in stock or anything you can email them at ncsx@msn.com and they'll get back to you quite quickly..

I haven't ordered from therage.com in a while but they have been quite good in the past. It'll cost 10 bucks extra from them though heh

Thanks for the find, I ordred it. $56.83 shipped. Not bad. I hope it wasnt the last one MoMo.;)

Buwahahaha It must have been the last one that I bought, cuz if you go to that link at NCSX now, Disgaea is SOLD OUT:lol: They still have it at The Rage for $60 though.:( So If you really want it Id get it before its too late.

Also, that site (NCSX) has some weird pricing. Pretty much every game, old or new is $49. So its a good site for rare games that sell for more than $50 but for older games that sell for less, its bad. Like Castlevania:LOI and Breath of Fire 4 are each selling for $49. I can get BoF 4 for like $20 or less.

Hey, I just ordered La Pucelle Tactics also, and I went to Amazon looking for a strategy guide to both games, La Pucelle guid runs for like $10, but the Disgaea one is over $70!! more than the game. Which doesnt make sense since Brady Games can just make as many of them as they want... But anyways, I also found this!! $49.99..http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00009YEJY/qid=1084258650/sr=8-1/ref=sr_8_xs_ap_i1_xgl63/104-5362390-6647905?v=glance&s=videogames&n=507846 I swore it wasnt here before when I looked. And if you buy it from Toys R us store and add another cheap game for a $50+ order, it is free shipping. This is your best deal IMO Momo.

Spiff, it depends on the edition. If it's a first edition, it's worth 70 dollars since only 10,000 were printed. They released a version 2 but it's way different from version 1. Which is why version 1 is considered a collectors item and sells for more than usual.

Edit: I looked at the back of my Disgaea case and they spelled Laharl like "Larharl".

SpaceManSpiff
05-11-2004, 05:23 AM
Hmm I just relized it isnt published by BradyGames. And I think I found the "2nd edition"http://www.cafeshops.com/doublejumpbooks.10952765

Hmm I wonder if the La Pucelle Tactics guide will end up like Disgaeas? Maybe I should pick up like3-5 of them just in case, since they are selling for $11 each.:evilsmile

05-11-2004, 05:32 AM
Nah, since Mastiff doesn't limit their copies like Atlus does, I'm sure the strategy guides won't turn out rare. But damn, I want La Pucelle. I wish I had money.

05-13-2004, 03:24 AM
damn i couldn't log in as my regular name=(

anyways yeah ncsx.com.. the games always cost $49 regardless of new or old..except on a rare occassion

therage is better for game deals. I got rygar for 17 dollar=) dunno why disgea is 60..oh well

Now that I've finished Transformers (yes, it was very short and finding all the minicons was very easy), I'm gonna start on La Pucille tomorrow. Ah, the summer of gaming, how I missed you.

Sweet! All I could find was a rental copy at Blockbusters. It'll be nice to actually own my own copy.
