Confused about MotoGP 3

Anyone know the deal with Namco's MotoGP 3 for the PS2 (not to be confused with THQ's MotoGP 3 for Xbox and PC)? It's available new on Amazon Japan for ¥7,140 (~$US 65), but only from third-party sellers on Amazon US starting around $US 50, and is on Amazon UK for £9.99 (~$US 17) from third-party sellers but with a different cover. I haven't found it anywhere locally. On eBay it's listed as "rare" and seems to go around $US 40.

WTF? Are those two the same game? Why is it so rare in the US, expensive-but-not-rare in Japan, and cheap in the UK?
