    Okay simple question here:
    Can somebody explain this to me?
    [​IMG]
    What the hell is going on?
    "6 new FROM $71"
    That FROM means the cheapest is $71
    Are Japanese prices usually this crazy?
    Or is Pokemon Black/White going to be really overpriced?
    I mean like, compare that to Pokemon Pearl on Amazon! I think it makes a darn good difference! [​IMG]

    yes it is usually that price after all how is it gonna get to ur house a magic teleporter? they have to import it from japan. also if you want the price a little better get it from play-asia.com. they are great with imports the shipping price is slightly better

    I mean I wasn't intending on actually getting the JAP version. But I checked its price to get an idea on what the US version's price would be like.
    So... the US one would be cheaper right?

    yeah, scalping is rampant on amazon.com these days, saw some idiot wanting 10 million for a preowned psx game. :|
    Shame we can't force change on there, it's getting out of hand.

    The price will be cheaper with a flashcart. But really that price is outrageous $71 bucks for Pokemon, I guess it is only being sold to parents who wants their children to have no life by telling them, "I bought a game for you for 71 bucks so play it for the rest of your life because that is the only game I am getting for you ever"

    No problem! Just want to say that maybe Amazon's price aren't always the best one sometimes.

    Games in Japan tend to be slightly more expensive for some reason >_>

    In Japan?? I thought just because it's imported, it's expensive.
    That's weird.
