it's true... but then there's 3.20 shipping. So is this the same as the dreamcast version or is this Space Channel 5 part 2?

Thanks. That's a cheap game. Too bad shipping's almost $4, but still a nice, nice deal

Stop! You're both right!
It's actually the DC game AND its sequel. It got a good review in the recent Gamepro.

It's both...the game includes 2 discs, the origina which was released for the DC, and Part 2, which was only released for the Japanese DC. Placed my order, this is a great deal for the game even with shipping!

The publisher on the site is wrong, it's being published by Agetec apparently Tommo Inc. is another name for Agetec. Their games on the BB website say Tommo Inc but looking a the box says agetec. I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't honor the price upon release.

Cool! I was hoping to pick this up for less than $20. Just hope they honor this price.

Since this is one of those sites that charges you immediately for preorders, I would imagine they'd probably honor the price. It becomes a much bigger headache to issue a bunch of refunds than it is to just cancel a preorder without issuing a charge (like Amazon tends to do).

I remember playing the original on a friend's Dreamcast. It was pretty fun. I like rhythm games. ~$12 including shipping & no tax for part 1 & 2 is a great deal. Thx for posting; I decided to get it.

Nice, ordered mine too. I always wanted to play this game, but I never got a DC.

Space Channel 5 part 2 has gameplay that involves singing in addition to the up down left right chu chu chu!! or so I've heard Interesting game with some pretty swinging music , my only complaint is that the first game was super short, it could be beaten in little over an hour. Hopefully the second is a little longer.

i just got email confirmation that this shipped... not even sure what kind of game this is (is it a dance/rhythm game?) but figured for that kind of price, it was worth the shot.

-
looks like it's scheduled for delivery today so i'll have it by tonight.

By the way, I just received my copy from Buy.com. I didn't realize it was 2 discs. Great deal! If you missed out on the Buy.com deal, read my post above for how to get it for $13.49.
