Game Reprints - Get 'Em While They're Hot!

GameQuestDirect is an independent company responsible for re-releasing many rarer, valuable, or highly desirable games from the past that didn’t quite get such good initial runs in retail stores. Reprints the company has previously released included such highly regarded and valuable titles (most of them fetching upwards of $70 or more on eBay for used copies) such as Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure, Rez, Persona 2, and Gitaroo Man.

The folks at GameQuestDirect are now at it again with another red-hot batch of game reprints. While their fresh new reprints – Suikoden III, Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner, and King of Fighters 2002/ 2003 Double Pack – aren’t quite as valuable as games like Rez and Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure were during their obscene price peaks, they are still uncommon games that fetch a good amount of dough on eBay. Also, while collectors are sure to swoon (especially if they paid top dollar for these titles) after hearing the news of these recent new reprints, it is great to know that people who have previously missed out on many of these exceptional experiences the first time around will get a second chance to give these titles a go.

The anime-inspired, cult hit Disgaea: Hour of Darkness, initially released quietly in Fall 2003, has still managed to retain it’s value even after a few reprints and has bewildered many people in the difficulty in trying to track down a copy (though it definitely depends on what area you’re in, because used copies have always been readily available – abeit for ludicrous prices – at game stores near me) will also shortly see another re-release from a source other than GameQuestDirect by the end of the month.

They sure fumbled the price thing... Still it would be a nice idea to re-release some PC classics too...

Hmm, I wouldn't mind picking up the King of Fighters 2 pack. I wonder will these folks re-release Castlevania Lament of Innocence?
