It pretty much is constantly $20, if you don't mind a physical copy. It goes on sale on PSN every few months it seems, if you'd prefer to wait for digital.
i'll pass, its not worth it for me to ship it out
its $20 Here - [link]
That's right. These games normally cost around $40-$70 digital long after release and when importing physical most games are at least $50+taxes+customs. The sale is noteworthy if you want them in Japanese, especially games like Persona 4G or Final Fantasy which don't seem to go on sale that often there but in English you can find them much cheaper. Even at this very moment you can get English Persona 4G physical from Amazon for 20 bucks with free shipping and it's not a bargain.
I wish I could honestly say that this sale is bad, but unfortunately these are pretty steep discounts by Japanese standards.
How do you feel about JRPGS? If you're up for one, try Persona 4 Golden: Manage the daily life of a Japanese high school student by day, solve a supernatural murder mystery by night. Includes monster collecting elements.
If you are done with gamestop, it's only $20 on Amazon. When I brought One Piece Unlimited World Red 'new' it just had a sticker, but Tales of Hearts R was in full plastic. Could just be random.
Happened a lot in the PS2 days. Brought Kingdom Hearts 'new' but when I got home and played, I noticed a huge scratch. Didn't effect gameplay until the very end cut scene. I still haven't seen the end of KH to this day.
You can grab P4G off of Amazon for $20.
If you're looking for just a game or two to hold you over until you can save up some spending money, then you really should go for Persona 4 Golden ($20). P4G will give you 60-150+ hours of really quality entertainment (many would call it the best game on the platform).
Also in your price range is Gravity Rush ($20), Tearaway ($20 used), LittleBigPlanet ($18), Killzone Mercenary ($20 used), and Final Fantasy X HD ($20).
If you're really sold on getting one of the games from your post instead, then you really can't go wrong with Chrono Trigger =).
For a game under $20, I really want to get my hands on Persona 4! I played 5 recently, and absolutely fell in love with it. I spent about 150 hours on it total between 2 complete playthroughs, and getting every trophy, too. So now, instead of being tired of the genre and needing a break, I've actually just got a craving to play even more. Basically, the game boils down to being a student, living your (literally) day to day life, then going into places and fighting monsters with other monsters. It's like Final Fantasy X meets Pokemon meets Time Management. And it's so good.
For a favorite game, I've gotta go with Super Mario RPG. This game oozes charm. It was my first JRPG ever, and features my favorite plumber, too (sorry, Luigi). The game takes the typical Mario formula and turns it upside down, and while that isn't out of the norm these days, it was a huge switch from convention back then. It's a good intro to RPG game with a good story, easy-enough mechanics, and, like I said, a crazy amount of charm. I go back to it every year or two to run it again.
FYI P4G is $20 new on amazon [link]
US Amazon has some copies. I'd just go digital if you're having this much trouble.
Canadian amazon aswell Persona 4 Golden - PlayStation Vita - Standard Edition [link]

Welcome to the club!!
Sub to /r/vita now if you'd like. A niche community of course but always helpful, aside from their discouraging saltiness given the way that Sony has treated the Vita. Their complaints are valid but sometimes it clogs up the place and makes it toxic.
Never played Tearaway but heard it is a "Must-have" and never touched the Final Fantasy series aside from being an avid gamer
since around '94-'95^shhh^don't^tell
P4G is amazing! (but everyone is pretty much going to tell you that.) But it really is one of my favorite video games ever to date. Just be warned that it takes a long ass time to get to the actually gameplay (about 2 hours.) When I started it, I was on a short road trip so it didn't bother me at all, but I still feel like even if I wasn't I wouldn't have gotten bored and begged for gameplay (which can't be said about a lot of story heavy games). Still think it deserves a warning, and after that though the story vs. gameplay is pretty balanced. Also you can skip through all the cutscenes and even fast forward the dialogue but I feel like you would really be doing a disservice to yourself.
One last thing, I prefer to own physical copies of games that are very long and I know I will be playing extensively to save memory. P4G is almost always $20 bucks on amazon I know it's more expensive than what's on sale now but just throwing it out there.
Persona 4: Golden - $19.99
LittleBigPlanet PSVita - $13.58
Uncharted: Golden Abyss - $16.98
That's 3 exceptional games in new condition that are all very different. Swap those out for whatever appeals to you. Most Vita games hover around $10~$25 after they've been out a while. If you get them on sale and/or used you can get them even cheaper.
So on average I would say: 3
Hm? Amazon or GameStop has it $20 exactly.
Yup, is 20 dollars
I'm in Europe.
It's $20 right now for the NA version.
It's actually on sale for 14$ on amazon.ca. Just stumbled across it. [link]
