Regular edition is oddly £39.99 plus the shipping.


EDIT: Regular edition is now £34.99 and HMV updated the boxart for the collector's edition.

I think I'm going to bite. I ordered Xenoblade Chronicles from GAME and it came within about 10 business days. But, they were hacked recently and I don't think I want to order from them right now.

Wait for it to be released in the US in April.

Well 365games.co.uk is the only retailer I had any luck with getting an order through so I might consider it if they get it.

eBay. It was a GAME exclusive and I think they only did a first-print run on the CE.

Wait for it to be released in the US in April.


Unfortunately, there's no CE for the US, just the standard edition. But I'm still so damn happy they finally brought it to the US. I'm still going to preorder the Last Story CE though, both so I can play it and in hopes that strong sales will encourage NoA to bring over Last Story as well.

Gotcha, thanks. I'm definitely in for one. Heck, you couldn't get a CE of a game - especially an RPG - released in the US for that price at release. Plus I kinda doubt they ever bring this one over. Even tho I'm personally double-dipping & picking up a US copy of Xenoblade, I doubt many are.

The CE for Xenoblade wasn't anything special, just a red controller.

Preordered. I will also buy the standard ed. if/when it gets released here. I'm really only buying this for the steelbook haha.

$66 for a collectors edition of a game that may not be released in North America is very tempting. Even if it does get localized we probably won't get this collectors edition, and I love steel cases. Hmmm.. do I wait and hope for a localization, or should I bite and jump in on this? Damnit I did write those Op Rainfall letters to Nintendo so I think I'm going to wait, and if nothing happens by the end of the year I'll import.

I wound up ordering it - this really doesn't seem like the kind of thing NoA would bother bringing here. If anything, we'll probably just get the standard edition.

Oh snap! Definitely in! Not only do I get to show NoE love, but they're basically giving us an awesome package for roughly $15 more than the standard $50 MSRP in the states.

I think I'm going to bite. I ordered Xenoblade Chronicles from GAME and it came within about 10 business days. But, they were hacked recently and I don't think I want to order from them right now.


Oh man, I know what you mean. Their site was down nearly all the time. After 3-4 weeks, I tried to email them to cancel but had no luck. But then I saw a charge on my card was made by them the previous week and a few days later, I got the game.

Does anyone know how HMV packages things? Do they just put it in a mailer or in an actual box? I bought the Xenoblade CE from Game and it was packaged very well in a box.

No they did not.

And don't count on this one eventually being localized like Xenoblade. Xenoblade getting localized was a fluke. 8 months after the European release with a very limited shipment is not a standard release.

I'm sorry since this is always asked in these threads, but when does HMV charge your card? I know Zavvi waits till it ships, so I'm hoping this is the same before I order.

EDIT: Finally found the answer, and it looks like they don't charge you until the item is dispatched for anyone else who was wondering the same thing.

dvd.co.uk also has both regular and LE versions. Their pricing on the LE is more expensive but I know they're reliable since I got Xenoblade through them last time. Their regular edition comes out much cheaper though. Putting items into your cart and checking out will show you that the end price is actually cheaper than whatever it says and it comes to about $42 shipped total.

Did they ship your xenoblade in a good box to keep it safe?

Check out my youtube channel! I do video game collection updates, unboxings, final impressions, and intelligent game industry commentary.  Expect lots of collector's editions, as well as steelbooks from all over the world! :D

They just filed for the trademark, they never or did anything beyond that. Companies file for trademarks all the time, it doesn't mean anything will come out of it.

And as Nintendonly said, NoA is releasing Xenoblade in a very limited manner. Being exclusive to only GS and NoA's online store are two small fragments of the new game market. I mean, new games only make up such a small fraction of GS's business and I doubt very many people shop at NoA's online store (or even know if and when they sell games). A vast majority of consumers that shop at Amazon, Best Buy, WalMart, Target, etc. aren't even going to see the game.

dvd.co.uk also has both regular and LE versions. Their pricing on the LE is more expensive but I know they're reliable since I got Xenoblade through them last time. Their regular edition comes out much cheaper though. Putting items into your cart and checking out will show you that the end price is actually cheaper than whatever it says and it comes to about $42 shipped total.


They used to be a lot better with their prices... now their prices are usually higher than most other retailers. HMV is a reliable retailer though so I don't see the problem with getting it from them.

Thanks OP! I switched my preorder of Last Story from Zavvi to HMV (having the LE for an extra $15 is a no brainer...)

I would recommend HMV without any hesitation. I ordered White Knight Chronicles: Origins for PSP last year from them & my order came quicker and better packaged than anything that I've ordered from Zavvi/The Hut. They are usually a little more pricer than the other UK retailers that ship overseas, but I will take my discount from whoever I can get it from ;)

Thanks, Preordered. I figure at worst I can probably sell it if I find wii modding to be hard (which I have seen is not).
