    Jet Set Radio Future is going out of production my friends. Make sure you snag a copy ASAP if you have been holding off or if you plan to get an X-box anytime in the near future.
    Heres the link for those wondering what I'm babbling about:

    What the heck? Are they insane? I was hoping the price would drop down to $65. [​IMG]

    Glad I got mine on release week. I still need to finish it. I haven't played it in quite awhile. I don't know why, since it is the 2nd best game for the X-box.

    That's extreme scare tactics by IGN. I'm a little disappointed by that. People said the same thing about the PS2 REZ...

    Camp, what's your thoughts on this? Is JSRF still available through retail channels?

    It's still available, that's not what they are saying. Thing is, how many copies of this sucker have been made? Snow White went OOP long ago and you can still find that at any store you want.

    ARGH! I've been holding off on this one because it is so expensive up here and since I only got my Xbox a few weeks ago I've been busy with other titles. The thing is, JSRF is one of the main Xbox games I was looking forward to. I figured whenever I had time I'd be able to just walk into a store and pick it up, and maybe the price would've gone down a bit. Oh well, I guess I'd better go get a copy.

    On the bright side I get to go buy and play a copy of JSRF!

    i dont get the logic. rez is not really popular so it makes sense to OOP-ed it. but jsrf? come on, i think that is only a marketting tactic.

    Joseph, most games that sit on the shelves aren't reprinted - you'll get the initial couple of runs & that's it. It's only the huge sellers that get reprinted & reprinted.

    You also have to remember that JSRF contains large amounts of licensed music. They could have only licensed for a particular period

    *hugs copy of JSRF*

    Perhaps I am just one of a small group of fanboys for the JSR series. My impression was that this was a widely ancticipated and appealing title, but that was obviously wrong.

    Well, regarding the poor sales of JSRF.. there's no accounting for taste.

    What gets me is I can still find stacks of Jet Grind Radio in the stores. How many of those bad boys did they make.

    Actually, if you take into account what I paid for JGR it's not too bad: JGR - $15, JSRF - $80. which comes out to an average of $47.50 per game. Not too shabby.

    Understood Brian. Seemed kind of out of the blue is all.
