Edit:

Found it at the Book Depository for about 6 bucks cheaper, plus free shipping.

http://www.bookdepos...lectors-Edition

Wouldn't have looked it up if not for this topic though.

For some reason the Book Depository says it's only 500 pages, weird.


Found it in my GB, thought some of you might be interested, 600 page Hardcover Future Press Guide, I'm sold. Looking to be a decent game too!

FWIW, IGN video review.

Amazon link.

Looks like it's only $21.18, at The Book Depository. That's with no tax and free shipping

You can update the post with that cheaper version if you want.

The Book Depository is a UK based site, but I ordered the Future Press guide from them for Dark Souls, and it's the same guide no matter what county.
I think I remember Future Press being based in Germany, and all their same language guides are the same.

From what I've found out, they are adding more to the guide. so that's why it's coming out later.

This worries me too, amazon.co.uk has it at 500 page too.

If anyone can find out if the UK and US versions are the same...

I believe futurepress (via facebook) said it will be at least 600 pages+ at release. Most likely the various sites (uk, book depository, etc) are not using the updated info yet. At one point, us amazon reported 400 pages while uk reported 500 pages.

Yeah on Amazon.com it used to say 400 pages and was $2 cheaper than it is now. I'll just keep that 24.99 order over the UK one though I think just so I get it sooner.

i got it locked in at amazon for the 24.99 price for 2 copies. im keeping that only cause the book depository you get charged foreign currency fees from them. also my dark souls guide took 3 weeks to get and i plan on playing this game right away.

Wow, you mean this thing was selling for $12.50 at amazon before? Next time, please post a thread so we could all get in on such great deal!

Also, I changed my order to depository, since they are charging US$, I hope there is no foreign currency fees.

I'm down for this, wish it came out with (or before) the game though since Ken Rolston is signing stuff at the gamestop down the street this monday. Seriously, who knew that shitty ol' Northern Baltimore was such a gaming mecca?

It's the same price at Gamestop and if you buy it with the game, you get either 10 or 20% off the price depending on if you're a PUR member or not.

Just got an email from Amazon saying my preorder for the guide was delayed due to change of release date (Feb 7 to Feb 21st now). Not big deal since their adding 200 more pages.

I will never buy a future press book again. The dark souls one they did had to be the worst guide book written if not the worst book written in history. Don't support them!

The guide since they're adding to it apparently. I probably won't be getting it now since I really won't want/need it by February 21st when I'm getting the game on the 7th. I wonder who's Fuck up that was.

The fact that you say it could be the worst book written in history makes it really had to take your comment seriously.

I've heard nothing but great things about Future Press, guess you're in the minority.

I have that Dark Souls guide, and while I haven't really checked it out yet, it looks to be a really well put together guide. Care to comment more on why it's so bad?
I think most of us can agree the worst player's guide ever made was the guide for Final Fantasy IX. That's why I buy a paper guide, to be told to look online for most things, what a pile of crap that guide was.

I agree with you. It looks like the worst guides would have to be Final Fantasy IX and Disgaea 4.

http://www.amazon.co...28427901&sr=1-1

Future Press makes some of the best guides. I know some of the information is different now with the patch 1.05 but it's still has some good information in it. The quality to Future Press guides is well worth the money. My only other favorite guide company is Piggyback.

To each their own but I will support Future Press until they stop making guides for games I'm interested in.

eh I wouldn't say the Digaea 4 guide has anything on the POS the FFIX guide is now

at the time of release it wasn't bad but since Square didn't keep PlayOnline support up the guide is now pretty much useless

just too bad Double Jump went out of business :-( they would have made an awesome Disgaea 4 guide

Are you guys talking about FF IX or FF XI? Cause I know the FF XI guides were updated by year for a little bit, IE 2003, 2004, etc.

It's the Final Fantasy 9 guide we're talking about. It's the guide where Square was really trying to push PlayOnline on everyone. So instead of the tangible guide actually giving you info, it told you to go to the PlayOnline website, to get the info you bought the damn book for!

It was simply horrible.

PUR benefits page says only 10% ... am I missing some other coupon or offer code?

Wow, I had no idea FFIX guide was this crappy! A few years back I came across a local store that had a ton of this for sale ($15 each), I brought a couple and ended up selling them for $50 a piece on amazon, so I went back and brought a copule more... still have them somewhere in the house...

You get 10% off just for being a PUR member, and another 10% when you buy the game with the guide. I believe it's a 20% discount, not 19% (i.e. 10% off then 10% off that), but I could be wrong.
