Just so you know, nintendo was sued because the joystick was hard plastic. It wasn't soft, and many minigames required you to spin the joystick around.

Well actually the main reason they got sued was because people decided to use their palm to rotate the joystick, the lawsuits were minor and some didnt up hold because technically it was their own fault for what would be considered "improperly" using the contoller in a way nintendo did not intend for you to. Regardless nintendo ended up making a statement warning kids against doing this.

This was two years ago that I played it. It had only really just been released at the time and the fact it hasn't been released to the public suggests there's probably been a lot of tweaking going on. Might be a lot better than it was last time I played it. It was kind of a linear RPG style thing with tasks based around teaching you mood control/mindfulness/self awareness etc.

I found that you could play it at least somewhat on the LinkedWellness website.

The game is available for free as a beta right now--you don't even have to register. Go to You need to login to view this link and click on the Click Here To Play SPARX Now link in red in the top menu. There is a link that shows the game isn't finished being ported from CD Rom so there are a few bugs still. Great idea though. I hope they do well--definitely a good idea.

Most games in the US cost about 50-58 bucks right?

A game during it's "launch price" in brazil goes from R$210-R$300 depending on the store, and do you wanna know how much low the price goes after some time has passed? Some stores leave the price the same while other games stores price them at about R$140-R$200 just because they can.

No ********, Last year (about a month ago faggots) I sall a demon souls USED copy at R$249,99 at a local game store.
