slidecage was right way back when. I read somewhere the other day (don't remember if it was Atlus forums or NeoGAF) that people are already getting cancellation e-mails. So, hopefully that first Monday morning was early enough for me.


I haven't gotten any cancellation e-mail as of yet and I pre-ordered in store that Monday morning. That was a day or two before Atlus announced they sold out in store and you could only get it on Gamestop's website.

Looks like people did start getting cancellation emails starting a few days ago. Anyone here get one?

I'm pretty sure that Gamestop oversold but I want someone to copy and paste the e-mail. The OP just ditched the thread and no e-mail has been posted.

I pre-ordered from Amazon after they sold out and put a couple more up but it seems shitty of Gamestop to blame others when it's their fault. No reason they can't keep track of their numbers like Amazon.

Yeah, if all of these preorders are getting canceled, I'd imagine at least one CAG getting the email... I mean, it doesn't make sense that they wouldn't send out cancellation emails ASAP to everyone effected.

I don't think those people are lying though... I mean, what would be the point?

No, but this would seriously suck if it turns out to be true. I think a lot of CAGs suspected GameStop of overselling pre-orders and it would be shameful if they actually did. :cry:

I believe Atlus announced the pre-orders were all sold out. I wouldn't want to see a third batch. Be glad you got one and if amazon doesn't come through then they will compensate you most likely.

LE For 70 or Normal for 30 not sure if the LE is worth 40

yea but that tweet was just made a few days ago i think.. amazon was taking orders late august and sold out really fast. i'm hoping amazon had a third batch sometime in between so another cag was able to pre-order after the second run

Gamestop.com is still selling this, they pulled it down for a week and then put it back up. Maybe Atlus decided to print more since it sold out so quickly. There's really no reason why they can't.

Yea but Amazon, Amazon.ca, & GameStop were the only places to order it. Amazon had the 2 pre-order opportunities but don't know about Amazon.ca. We all know GameStop over sold so I wouldn't expect Amazon to put this up again. Don't get me wrong anything can happen I just wouldn't count on it.

They really can't just reprint the LE. The extras aren't like making a cartridge after all, lol. There is some legal stuff they would need to work out with Hori I would imagine before a reprint would even be thought of.

The second time Amazon had it up was likely to sell copies from the initial pre-orders that were cancelled. Amazon will probably have it again just after release so they can clear out remaining copies.

I doubt they plan to make more then 10000 copies. I'm almost 100% GS fucked up big time (maybe they were allocated 5000 copies and instead, put 50000 in their systems).

I preordered one of these from Amazon as soon as they went up, if their really only making 10000 copies should i just leave mine sealed when i get it and buy the game separately? My vita already has a carrying case, screen protector and a skin on it so the ones in the ce aren't going to be used even if i open it.

I'm seriously torn on this as well. I'm a huge fan, but I can't help but wonder how much this will be worth. I suppose it helps that Amazon has my copy coming in the week after release, so I'll have a chance to see what's up on eBay. I may just keep it sealed just for myself, though I will very much need the skin and cases. :-#

amazon is including the skin in the reg version of the game if you pre order. it looks like it's the same one that's included in the premium edition.

I pre-ordered this from Gamestop and I chose value shipping, but I'm worried that the box might get damaged during the shipment. It isn't too late to change shipping to one or two day shipping. Would it be worth it to change the method of shipping?

GS usually packs their stuff in boxes now. Amazon is more hit or miss these days with special editions.

Don't worry about GameStop. They usually package stuff very well. And most of the time their value shipping is actually 2 day shipping.

Damn... all this time I thought I had pre-ordered this on Amazon long ago, but apparently not. Doh. Decisions... do I order one through Play-Asia? Shipping runs an extra $17 or so, which basically makes it about $110. I may just pass and take my chances trying to find one cheaper on eBay or AWD after release.

Buy It for play-asia. Eliminate the risk and uncertainty.

Damn, if shipping wasn't $17, I probably would've gotten it. Oh well, I guess I'll continue keeping an eye to see if Amazon has any near the game's launch.

So does Play-Asia ship instantly at launch, or do they take a bit to process orders?
