DDS2 is still readily available. I was at Fry's today and saw a bunch of copies. However, that's not an LE, and DDS1 is... Which was mentioned to be a hard find and pricey on eBay. I say don't take your chances and preorder the game. It seems being able to find their games is extremely spotty without a Fry's nearby anyway.

I heard somewhere that the Special Edition (with the art book) is going to be the only edition produced and will have a limited run, so you might want to pick it up if only to ensure your copy. It is unlikely to be lying around in a year or two. I could be wrong, but I personally think it would be better safe than sorry.

On a similar note, DoubleJump is making the strategy guide and their guides have a tendency to be quite rare, possibly even more rare than the games they cover.

Yeah, just keep them for like 5 years and sell them on ebay or amazon where they'll be worth 150 bucks a piece or something like that.

After five years, with the inflation and all, wouldn't that be kind of a really lame profit for such a long wait? Though that might just be me.

In any case, I can't wait for Persona 3 to be released. I'd pre-ordered it, but well, delay is inevitable. Plus, seeing as it's the printers' fault, you can't really blame Atlus for a lack of foresight or anything.

A 2-liter bottle of cola-cola was, what, $1.50 back in 2002?  Do you pay $4.50 for the same bottle in 2007?  Do you pay $6.00 for a Big Mac, these days?  I don't think so, heh.  If he can, indeed, sell them for $150.00 each in five years, I highly doubt "inflation" will shatter the man's profit... Go read an economics textbook or three.

Yeah, the issue really is whether you want to wait that long or not. Even WITH magical hyper inflation, that'd just make the game, if the Coca Cola example is any indicator, $450.

This will most likely "beat a dead horse," but since I have eight hours of free time @ work on a daily basis and spend most of that time fucking around on the internet, I did a little research.  The subject interests me, after all.

$100.00 in 1987 = $183.96 in 2007.
That's an average inflation of 20.99% over each 5 year period in the last 20 years.  From this, we can estimate that $100.00 in 2007 will be around $120.99 in 2012.  And therefore, a $49.99 copy of Persona 3 will, in theory, be worth $60.48.  

If one were to sell 5 copies of Persona 3 for $100.00 each in 2012, that is a free $197.60 magically pulled out of his/her ass.  I'd say that's a rather respectable profit.

Econopwned. :P  Moral of the story: Want to make money?  Buy lots of Atlus' shit, lol.

"I heard somewhere that the Special Edition (with the art book) is going to be the only edition produced and will have a limited run", that happens with almost all Atlus games I thought?

... It applies to all of ther LE games. Like the one this topic is about. Actually, I have no clue if there'll be two versions of GrowV or not. That seems way too excessive to be the only option.

Edit: LOOKING AT GAMESTOP WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA BEFORE POSTING! GrowV's in an LE and sold at $50. It could have the same ultimate fate as DDS and probably Persona 3, but Magna Carta's been available for a long while, and really this seems more likely to match that.
