Originally posted by vspIf anyone's been waiting for this year's sleeper PS2 title, this is it. Pure delight, if you can find it, as it's reportedly a small press run.
I don't know how sleeper it is. I work PT at lets just say "Great Purchases" and am in charge of the video games. I put out the 4 copies we got so far on Saturday about 2pm, and all were gone by 3pm. Every gaming magazine I have read and website are giving this game VERY high scores. I think the word is out though. And what's up with the box art? Very relaxing and I love it.
Originally posted by TwoflowerI can't find the game at any of my local shops; either they don't carry it, never heard of it, or it sells out instantly. Maybe I can find it online somewhere; Amazon doesn't stock it, unfortunately.
Amazon has it listed as "Katamari Damashi."
(Whether or not it's in stock, I dunno.)

I got lucky and found a GameStop that had two copies on the US release day, and snagged one of them. Try EB, GameStop, Best Buy, and then hope for a second shipment if they give you no joy.

Originally posted by ZeruelI went to the Best Buy @ Laurel, Rockville, and Gaithersburg MD in the last couple days for various purchases. All had 12+ copies of the game. I got one, haven't played it yet.
If it's THAT hard to find, maybe I should get three or more copies to eBay. It was only $19.99 plus tax.
Thank you for proving my point. Video Game stores are for VIDEO GAMERS, and a nitche title like this will sell out. Search for bigger stores that sell games secondary and you'll be in luck.
Just because it's a short supply now doesn't mean it won't be ramped up. So I wouldnt throw too much thought into a "collectors item".
If anyone is still looking for this game it looks like bestbuy.com has it for $19.99 in stock. I haven't gotten it yet, but bestbuy.com is how I managed to dig up the slightly rare Gamecube remake of Ikaruga last year.
And yes, I *really* looking forward to the DS version of Damacy. It should be a blast to play with the stylus.

There is Blue Force, which was designed by Jim Walls, but as far as I know, you can't obtain it legally anymore. Other links of interest: http://freesci.linuxgames.com/ This is an emulator much like ScummVM which allows you to play old Sierra games....
