At the end of last year I "spoke" in a thread re this game I am now pleased to say I was one of the lucky few who did pre order a copy of the PAL version and got it on the day of release (well I ended up with two!! but I declined one from Another World on mail order for £170 inc. P+P) I got one from a local independent store for £130 much better!!. Steel Battalion/Tekki was the single biggest reason I went for the Xbox as opposed to the PS2. I was wondering how any of you've found the game in the long term? also I must say I am really ****** off with what looks like blatent profiteering to me with the amount of factory fresh examples on sale on ebay, at one point I really wasn't sure I would get a copy of the game at all, and then I had the opportunity to profit but declined to knowing how ****ed off I was when I thought would have to go to the 2nd hand market to get one at inflated prices. Surely as the game was of relatively "limited" appeal all these factory fresh examples were bought buy retailers or staff to then be sold on without any intention of playing them while genuine puchasers have been left high and dry and at the hands of these profiters. I was wondering everyone take is on the situation?
