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.

They're working on a Nintendo DS version as well.

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

Obviously, they don't have final hardware yet, but AnandTech (anandtech.com) got some hands on time with the 360, and it's the most I've seen of the system yet. It looks like a very well designed piece of hardware.
