I'm apprehensive. I did this with Infinite Undiscovery, and it ended up dropping to a low price a few months after release.

Nice. Was gonna try and hold off on it, but for 40 bucks, can't miss out. Thanks OP! (and if the reviews slay it like Infinite Undiscovery, hopefully they'll be out in time to cancel, but this game looks like SE's AAA product for the holiday, so I have high hopes.)

I'm in for one. This is probably what the game will drop to relatively quickly, like IU did, you just don't have to wait for the eventual drop.

Dang, really on the fence about this. Hopefully it will last long enough for me to think about it a bit more. If only I wasn't already spending a fair amount of money on games these days. Escapism can sure be expensive. Regardless, thanks for the heads up OP.

Thanks a lot OP, I've been looking forward to this heavily, and shaving 1/3 of the price off at release just doesn't get much better.

Thanks OP, I was just reading the preview of this game on IGN this morning and thought it would be an interesting purchase when it dropped in price....glad to see that price drop came before it was released!

The game supposedly has been pre-ordering horribly with 0 buzz. No shock its got a budget pricing before release. IU was a terrible game and this looks no different. Crappy rushed RPG's FTL =(

Blue Dragon was awesome tho.

Nice - always good to support the JRPGs, especially since Infinite Undiscovery did gangbuster sales (410k WW). Nice to have Square-Enix spread the love across consoles.

Never hurts to preorder and cancel if you change your mind.

Amazon rankings are pretty darn low compared to Tales/IU, so perhaps they got significantly more copies ordered for their warehouse than the actual # of preorders they've been receiving?

40 bucks? SAWEET :)

No free poster though..

The most important question to ask is if I can kill someone with the Batrang


Just call my local bestbuy and they had no clue about a sale..

In for one. I wasn't sure whether I wanted this for $60, but it's good deal for $40. Hell, if it turns out to suck, I'll probably have time to cancel it before it ships, especially since I'm going for the free (slow) shipping.

Plus, there's no way you can go wrong with the "Goblet" formation.

IU SHIPPED 410k WW. Its now being clearanced out at most major retailers due to excessive stock. It sold like crap. Last i heard, first month sales was ~42k in the US. It pretty much bombed worldwide.

I expected this game to be bad and this just reinforces that belief. Glad I passed on Infinite Undiscovery and I'll probably end up being glad I passed on this as well.

Well, probably shouldn't have, but I went ahead and got one. It's supposedly coming (eventually) to PS3 and PC as well for those interested.
