If 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.

I 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.)

Some of the first two, but mostly the last one.

Where is Katamari Damacy? (GameSpot)

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.

I 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".

This is the weirdest game I've ever played, but highly addicting.

I picked up a copy earlier today at EB. (I finally got around to selling 'em my old PS1, so I paid under $10 to get the game!)

Wow. What a...strange game. I laughed out loud the first time I managed to roll up a cat. "Meeeow."

vsp, THANKS for posting this. Otherwise, I never would have even heard of this game.

Yes, I'm resurrecting this thread.

I picked this game up Saturday and played it all the way through by Monday evening.

What an amazingly different game - this was a blast.

If you had trouble finding it before, try again. I asked if they had this when I was checking for Phantom Dust, and they had a copy this time.

This is in my all-time top 10 I think.

Did you know? There is going to be a sequel! Hooray!

EDIT: I bought my copy at Best Buy for twenty dollars. The last time I was there, they still had plenty in stock, so I would assume that it is less difficult to find than you think.

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 are also a ton of copies on Ebay, along with someone selling hand painted easter eggs with Katamari Damacy art.

I put this game in the display PS2 at work sometimes...and I find myself being VERY judgmental towards anyone who doesn't just stand there and keep playing it
