    Loved this game. People, go buy! >=3

    • Timovisch

      Wish I could but I live in Europe.

    • Timovisch

      I wish I could but I live in Europe. Still waiting for this game hehheh. :)

  • *patiently waiting for Europe release* well good on you -_-

  • Demandred

    Oh, wow. Nintendo sure know how to discount!

    • TiredOfMyOldUsername

      So true…

  • EdgeKun

    Very awesome! This gives me a bit of hope that we’ll see more discounts on full blown eShop games as the 3DS matures!

  • NimbusStev

    Man, you just can’t compete with Amazon prices. The $10 off is a nice incentive, but brand new copies are going for $25 on Amazon right now.

    • 60hz

      yeah this is a great game but way over priced, considering that two layers of middle men (distributer and retailer) are skipped in digital download you would expect prices to be ALOT lower. Sad because i was going to DL.

      • Mozendo

        I was beyond satisfied paying $40 for it. It’s not overpriced at all.

      • Τζένη Μπότση

        Τhis happens because Nintendo doesn’t want to antagonize the retailers with lower prices. They would react like Gamestop did with the XboxOne DRM policies. So same or similar prices and more money to Nintendo with the Digitals. It’s a win/win for both of them but the consumers…not so much…DL is still in it’s infancy for Nintendo.

    • Shane Guidaboni

      Digital prices are always way more than retail prices. And digital prices never decrease the way retail prices do. That’s why I’ll never go digital.

      • Barrylocke89

        I wouldn’t say always. On PC, Digital games get sales pretty often, even beyond the mega summer/christmas sales. The problem is that Consoles and handhelds are being very slow to do the same thing. I imagine it has to do with not wanting to upset retailers, who have a bigger hold on Console games than they do on PC games.

  • thaKingRocka

    If only they had done this sooner, I would have bought it for sure. I need to save my energy for IV.

  • Laith Rem

    Just a remainder.

    A boss battle is a dolphin with wings on a living painting. This game is so 90s you will feel like a kid (or an unborn depending on your birth year I guess)

    • RoxasTheUnknown1

      That battle was so arrrgghh. xD Figured out the gimmick eventually but man!

      • I had to go to gamefaqs to figure that one out. I pretty much just beat him to death with my physical attacks, haha. It took forever, but it worked!

    • Lightthrower

      This game is so 90’s because it IS a 90’s game :-P

  • Brimfyre

    I want this so so bad but I’m afraid if I play it I’ll be burned out by the time IV releases.

    • kmantle

      You can finish Soul Hackers in 25 – 30 hours (+ a few extra quests and a NewGame+ with a second ending).
      Believe me, you will not be burned out… YOU WILL BE WANTING MORE

      • RoxasTheUnknown1

        All they need to know is Raidou Kuzunoha XIV is there. xD

        • kmantle

          …and he and Raido summons the Souless God Oumagatsu

    • Oniros

      That totally happened to me. :/

  • I kind of wish I waited now, but oh well. I payed full price and felt like I got every dollar’s worth out of it. This was the first Shin Megami Tensei game I actually finished. I’m sure veterans breezed through it, but I had a little trouble learning all of the magic names. I had to look them up eventually.

  • Dont-leave-us-Atlus

    I was lucky enough to get a used copy on ebay for this price but it was the first print edition so it came with the extras so im happy with my deal

  • mojack411

    Saving for SMTIV. Money and energy wise.

  • ragingmerifes

    Buy it. It’s really worth it.

  • Zoozbuh

    Ignoring the fact that I’m in EU (and can’t buy this game yet anyway), WHY are Nintendo’s digital prices always more than retail games? It just doesn’t make sense, and they need to seriously re-think their online pricing. Not to mention the eShop isnt as accessible/secure as Steam or PSN (with the whole ‘lack of an account’ thing)

    • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

      At this time the Amazon copy cost 2 cents less and has shipping costs

      • Zoozbuh

        I know, but it’s particularly bad in Europe. Digital prices on the eShop are typically £39.99 and above (with a few exceptions)- and the prices on amazon are almost never that much. Not sure if that’s changed yet though. And hey, a few more discounts/knocking games down to £20 every so often couldn’t hurt?

  • AJ

    It’ll be 19.99$ on store shelves in another month or two.

    • Tylor Boreas Makimoto

      Didn’t happen to Overclocked. I just bought it used for $30.

      • AJ

        Devil Survivor 1, 2, and Overclocked were always impossible to find in my area. But every store in my city has 10 copies of Soul Hackers on the shelf.

        I do not know if this is unusual or not.

        (Also, Atlus games used are always high priced. It’s not “rare” if you have 40 copies on the shelf Mr. Used Game Shop Employee.)

  • Guilherme Matheus Silva

    Soul Hackers can wait, I want SMT4 right now, but not sure if I buy it physical or digital…
