sounds like a rip off to me. Atlus I like your games but why did you make this expensive?

Game, soundtrack, artbook/strategy guide, sexy sleeve.

I'd be willing to pay full console release prices, personally. But to each their own.

50 dollars for a first print auto CE edition. So you could either wait for the second print or buy it on the e-shop for 40 dollars.

It's Shin Megami Tensei IV. I was fine with $50 before I knew there were extras.

This is probably the biggest 3DS game.

This. I was perfectly willing to pay the $50 for the game alone, but the extras sweetened the deal.

This would cost $50 + $57 for me, with the shipping to Brazil, and yet I think I will pre-order it. A amazing game plus art book and soundtrack... Sounds a good deal for me.

Why? (And this is in no way meant to defend their decisions; just offering a likely reason behind their pricing)

Atlus has really been ahead of the curve, I believe, when it comes to pricing their games. They know they need to make more to make a profit, but unlike other companies (Square Enix perhaps) that just raise the price and assume audiences will recognize the value, Atlus throws in a few extras (in this case, the strategy guide and OST). However, those extras probably don't cost a whole lot, and it justifies (on paper and in perception to consumers) the higher premium.

I'm cool it with, personally, simply because I really want this game. But I can easily sympathize with curious non-fans who might be put off by the higher price.

I've never known a SMT game to suck.. even the ones I wasn't a big fan of were still ok by my standard and everyone else loved. So yea, $50 is ok.
