According to wikipedia it was released for dreamcast and gamecube, I've never owned/played either system. So I should be exempt from being banned!

Seconded!

SOA is one of the all-time great JRPGs. It also has the (somewhat dubious) honour of being amongst the first console games to incorporate DLC (at least it was free though). It's sad that even with two bites of the cherry, it never got the airplay it deserved. The Delphinus is arguably the best "airship" in any JRPG - even more so because you don't just blow crap up in pre-rendered CG, you do it in the turn-based ship to ship battles.

Okay good...I'm just glad I'm not the only one who loves this game...

Probably my favorite Gamecube/Dreamcast game ever...

I has the GCN version for my Wii, but it is part of my only-growing backlog of games that include things like DQ8, Rogue Galaxy, Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn, SO4

Shouldn't have a problem finding a copy. I'll see about buying sometime.

Quick question, this game (the gamecube version) will it work on my Wii?

EDIT: I think Mav just answered my question.

Yup and Yup. The game shouldn't be that hard to find...but it will be higher priced than gamecube games (used or new) simply because it was released early in the product lifecycle and it didn't do terribly well at market. I paid $45 for a new copy a couple years ago...it'll be a lot higher now.

It is definitely worth it!

^Right. It's not terribly priced (especially for how long the game is), but you can usually just find GC games @ around $10 w/ shipping nowadays.

Used is $32.98. Trying to find a reliable seller is my main concern if I'm to pay in between those prices.

I assume you live in the US. If so...Amazon has a used copy that they are selling direct (with their new trade-in program) so you have a guarantee, and they require the case, manual, and usable disc...

http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listi...condition=used

Try that if you're out of options on ebay...

Hope this helps!

Oops, that one is for Dreamcast I will be needing Gamecube. Sorry that my previous posts were misleading.

You are right I do live in the US.

I found Skies of Arcadia: Legends for $24.00 used on amazon. Now that I have an idea for todays going price, I'll be putting this on my list of things to buy.

Just in case this is skipping peoples minds... you will need a GameCube controller to play this if you're using your Wii.

Yay! The world will be a better place with 1 more Arcadia fan!

@Lynk: Thanks for the heads-up!
