Reissued Mega Man X Collection Gets Price Cut
As it turns out, Amazon just obtained another batch of fresh X Collection copies, slashing the price down to $12.86. Nice, eh? Well, it gets better. Amazon associates are offering new copies even cheaper. How's $7.82 sound for ya? Pretty slick deal, if you ask me. Mind you, there's no indication how many copies are in-stock, so you may want to act on this deal quickly before things deplete.
Unfortunately, I've no word on a reissued GameCube version. Amazon continues to sell the GC version for a staggering $75, with used copies starting at $24 and up. Just as it was in November, reprints are strictly limited to PlayStation 2. I'm not entirely sure why, but one theory I've heard is there's generally more of a demand for the PS2 version.
Anywho, if you don’t already have the originals or missed X Collection the first time around, you may want to consider investing in this deal while you can. Thanks for the tip, Rabidrodent!

GC > PS2.
Aaaand payment made. I encourage the rest of you, at the very least, get a Megaman game through this discount, to show these Capcom bigwigs that we still very much care for our series.ReplyDelete
I'm still amazed that they continue to resell this game several years after its release. It needed a sequel badly but that ship has sailed.ReplyDelete
Probably because the PS2 is still a viable format. The slow early sales of the PS3 has lead to the PS2 having a remarkably long lifespan.ReplyDelete
I have the GC version myself, but the Wii has pretty much replaced the GC, while the PS3 has not done the same to the PS2.
Purchased on the spot on my lunch break from work. Thank you, as always, Proto! :DReplyDelete
Already had my copy from way back then. =3ReplyDelete
So do I. I've had my Gamecube copy for over five years now.ReplyDelete
awesome deal, I remember for a while there the ps2 version was going for $30-50 before the reprint.ReplyDelete
I recently picked one of the reissues up at gamestop for $13.99, after my ex gf threw away my first print version 6 months ago.
I still wonder though, why do people think the gamecube version is so much better? they play the same to me.
This is going to sound lame especially given current events but dammit I want a Legends collection, it's impossible trying to find copies of either game and one has to turn to piracy if they want to play it.ReplyDelete
You can't go by Amazon prices, they're always ridiculous for out of stock items.ReplyDelete
What's the difference between the PS2 & GCN versions (other than the Ruby Spears vs Keiji interview)? I remember the PS2 version of the Megaman Collection was superior to the Gamecube version.
Why no GC version? :( My backwards-copatible PS3 broke 2 years ago. :/ReplyDelete
I bought the gamecube copy used some time back with memories of X1 on the SNES and watching my cousines play 4 and 5 when I visited.ReplyDelete
I learned that I am not very good at X games.
It's a shame too, because I wanted to play Battle and Chase.
Bought my copy last night just to have for collection's sake. Completes my PS2 Mega Man collection too, thanks!ReplyDelete
Isn't the 7.82 one has 4.98 shipping? Or am I missing something?ReplyDelete
