Speaking of Greatest Hits, why doesn't Nintendo continue on with their Player's Choice lineup? Not continuing this seems like a way for them to sell their software for as a high a price as possible for as long as possible.

For example since DS doesn't have Player's Choice or Nintendo Selects, you can find certain games from 10+ years ago like Super Mario 64 DS, Mario Kart DS, and New Super Mario Bros. for $40 for a brand new copy. Wii fortunately had some titles in the Player's Choice lineup for $20, but that was toward the end of the gen instead of during the gen.

They seemed to have abandoned the label this gen in order to repeat the same pricing BS from the 7th gen.

Hopefully this paves the way for a sooner release of the fifth installment. I do miss Kazuma Kaneko's character design but Shin Megami Tensei IV looked like it was the proving ground for possible replacements.

Amazing game. One of my Top 5 on the system.

I will pick this up soon enough, but first I must finish TotAbyss, and go back and finish Persona Q and Soul Hacker.

Fun fact: both Dragon Quest 8 and Dragon Quest 9 sold more than that in North American alone... and Square-Enix deemed them FAILURES.
