Yea im on the hunt as well but i think im gonna go ahead and buy the one one amazon for 110. Just kinda in the middle atm with the servers being low population. But your right these online sites are crazy, this game is old and dated and its future is uncertain.
The two places that list it as new do not have it in stock. They say they can backorder the item, but neither site has any available at this time. I may go ahead and try the backorder route with nuLime and see what happens!
