I paid $50.00 USD for it... well with shipping and states sales tax I paid $57.50 USD. Did I pay too much? It is brand new and still sealed after all. :lol:

I bought mine for $20 new at ebgames.com MONTHS ago. (Sometime in mid 2002 I think). I think the amount you paid was the same price when it was released. Soul Calibur sold well so it took ages for that game to drop in price.

Well I have it unsealed, but lately my entire Dreamcast collection has been purchased brand new and sealed (of course I open them to play), I then take my game of the same game and sell it.

I do this to guarentee no scratches, perfect cases, and all inserts. :mrgreen:

I'm a real pain when it comes to videogame collecting, everything has to be mint, and include all inserts, and include the manual. :P :D

I would say you got ripped. Also there are places that do profesional resurfacing jobs for pretty cheap. Non of that disk doctor crap.

Yeah you got ripped off. The USA one goes for around $20 sealed new and the Japanese one goes for $30 or 15. I don't understand why sometimes the Jap one goes for more and then sometimes it goes really each.

Yeah I know what you mean. Don't you just hate you they have custom case's because once they get cracked the only way to fix it is to rebuy the damn game.

Sorry I haven't commented on anything...I have been in California on business for about a week. Nevertheless, you did pay too much. It is readily available used for under $20 in numerous places, and EB had it new some time back new for $19.99. Ofcourse, feeling ripped is relative. It is harder finding it new; but as long as you are happy, that is all that matters. I spent many hours last week unlocking stuff on Soul Calibur. It is a truly terrific game, and I really wonder what they did to add to the game's mystique in the sequel.
