Planning on picking up The Last Story when it hits US shores later this summer? Better snatch that gravy up fast. According to publisher XSeed "...we do anticipate a limited run for the game as we already have a number in mind of how many units we can expect to sell of this title, and all our pre-production efforts will be geared towards being able to manufacture a final number somewhat close to our initial estimated number. It's too early to start thinking of doing additional runs, but as a general policy we haven't been very active on doing reprints of our other titles so far. "

The last time a Wii game with this kind of consumer interest got a limited edition was Metroid Prime Trilogy. Now that sucker goes for up to $300 on eBay. If you don't want to have to shell out that kind of dough for The Last Story, you'd do well to shell out for it while it's still in stores. Xseed is still undecided about putting out a special edition, like the ones released in Europe and Japan. If they do, I assume it will be super-limited, and as a result, super-expensive on the second hand market later on, unlike the Halo 3 limited edition (currently running for $30 or less).
