Anyone know when this started asking prices of $70-$90 for a US copy on ebay? One of my friends was wanting to get the game so we can play together and got turned off by the eBay prices for a US copy. I remember this game being somewhat cheaper last year. Like around 30 or so. I guess it's going to be one of the ps3's more rare and valuable games?

We don't like the idea of buying digital games when physical copies are available. We aren't huge supporters of digital. Just found it weird the physical copy cost so much more now.

You're gonna have to deal with the price hike, or maybe try to find a used copy (doubtful). The game was released with a fewer amount of physical copies compared to other games in the first place. If I didn't pre-order when I did and waited years to wanna get it, then I would've bought it digitally in a special sale. This is the unfortunate state of gaming we live in right now.

If you're not completely ultra-super-anti-digital then the game is part of the flash sale for this weekend on PSN for $5.99:

Sounds like a pretty good deal compared to $70+ on eBay.

Honestly, I'm not big on digital games myself, but there is a pretty steep price gap here.

You can cough up six bucks for a digital copy, or more than ten times as much for a physical copy.

The choice is yours.

defending physical is pointless if you can get for 6 bucks right now.You will never get a physical copy of Jojo for that price,especially because,if I recall,they produced limited quantities from day 1(undubbed games on PS3 rarely got physical copies,and if they did,it was limited.Compare the undubbed Dynasty Warriors games released on PS3 and other systems:PS3 was digital-only and PS4 and Xbox One got normal physical releases.).
and since it's a licensed franchise,you should NEVER pass the oportunity to get a digital copy pretty cheap.You never know for how long it will last there.

If anything, a very good discount is often a telltale sign of a delisting coming soon thereafter. It's very common with a sale right before they take the digital game down for good, without announcing it in any way.

I would guess that this isn't the case this time since it's an anime themed sale and other similar games are discounted but safe vs. sorry and all that.

One Piece Pirate Warriors 2 was taken out last year without warning.Which is weird,because every other One Piece game that got released on digital stores are still there,including the older PW1,and Namco Bandai owns everything,so go figures...to play PW2 in English,you have to import a physical copy from Europe.
