I have a game that I play every year. It's called "The Legend of Dragoon" and my copy is getting a little on the worn out side. I love it to bits and it shows. I checked around the city and found a used copy at High Tech Game Traders for $42. I told the dude there that I already own a copy and he said he could resurface it for $10. The rate is usually $5 per disk and it's a four disk game. I then checked on the internet and there are some new copies for $45. The tough choice comes in because the dude said that resurfacing is not guarenteed to make it work better. I don't want to spend $10-$20 on something that may not work. But $45 is a lot for a game I already have. I may not even play that copy. I just wanted a backup since Sony is stupid. Of course having a new copy could be good since it would probably gain value if I keep it sealed and I could sell it if I ever got too tired of it. Another problem is the Playstation Network. The only reason I can think of for it not going on the Playstation Network is "The Legend of Dragon". Which is only one letter different from "The Legend of Dragoon". So there's the chance that I would be unlucky and Sony would put it up the same week or month I cave in and buy a copy. I have to make this choice pretty quick since it sells out fast. To be honest, it's not the best game in the world, I just have a ton of nostalgia towards this game. I actually bought the soundtrack today for $16. I know it's my money but I never got a disc resurfaced before. I heard from Protonjon during one of his livestreams that it usually works well. I also did some research to see if it could possibly make things worse. It seems like that only happens with lazer burns and not with light scratches and finger prints which is what my game has. TL;DR; I'm a cheap person who loves a game to bits...literally. Should I shell out $45 for a new copy or pay $10-$20 to have it resurfaced? Or should I do neither and hope Sony smartens up?
