X-Zone... so tempted to cancel my Amazon pre-order... this is guaranteed to be the limited pre-order edition? 99% sure but nervous that it doesn't list it.

Yes, it will be. As a matter of fact, the only edition that will be released in the US is the "limited" edition that Japan got.

I wish these places packed these games better. I'm still worried Amazon will send it in a bubble mailer too.

Wait, you don't get your item in a box?
I've order from them about three times, and i've never gotten a damage item. The item always comes in a little small box.

Preordering Infinity from almost anywhere else gets you an additional action figure of your choosing and a pack of power discs. If you are interested in buying anything past the starter pack preorder from Amazon.

Nope. I think Newegg is very YMMV on packaging depending on which warehouse they ship from. For the last few years, I've gotten all of my smaller CEs from Newegg in bubble mailers. Looking at my order history, the two most notable ones were RE5 CE at release (they did give me a $10 refund, which I used to buy a replacement box) and Kingdom Hearts 3D CE at release. For the KH3D CE, they bubble mailer was ripped by the item's corner... which they covered up with the shipping label.:-x

The rest I got post release and at a discount so I can't complain too much about those.

Some CAG said that they always covered refund shipping for returns, but they never do for me. The only CEs they ever shipped in a box was Skyrim and Uncharted 3. Funnily enough, they often ship regular edition games in boxes.

Not dissing Newegg just saying they need this option as does Amazon. I order from Newegg just don't order limited editions unless I want a crushed box and want to pay return shipping. Also Newegg has the worst CS out there I've encountered.

Tempted for the Project X Zone, but Newegg doesn't take Paypal for preorders.

My code of princess packaging came damaged. Had to sell it on eBay. Amazon isn't any better, but returns are easier with AMZ. I'm just going with the lower price and will figure out the rest later.

If you actually read some of the responses in this thread, you'll see that I'm not the only one who's received damaged CEs, nor are you the only one who receives everything in boxes. It varies.

I've shopped with them since 2006 and it wasn't until 09/10 that I noticed a huge shift to using bubble mailers for games (they always shipped my PC components and electronics in boxes though). Amazon has been 50/50 for but their return policy is much better.

Don't get me wrong, I won't ever stop shopping with Newegg. The fact that they're fighting patent trolls makes them golden in my book.

Their pc product orders come just fine, as they need to be handled fragile. Their collector’s edition video game products are the main concern people are having an issue with. Crushed, flattened, shattered, dented, destroyed during delivery is the problem. Either angry warehouse workers or rough delivery handlers.

He's just ribbing ya

He's referencing the third (fourth?) rise of pepsiman from earlier today on the AWD thread

That being said, I'd be all over the X Zone preorder if I wasn't getting it free from amazon due to them giving me an extra $20 coupon from that trade deal

I've received dozens of games from Newegg (many in bubble mailers), and only one was damaged.

all games this year have been in bubble mailers. I think the last game that Newegg sent in a box was when Tales of Grace came out.

I do recall noticing a different state on the tracking sticker last year so maybe they got rid of some warehouses

Yeah, I know they issued return shipping labels in the past when I contacted them (the problem was usually a loose disc that had become damaged during shipping). But they have also offered a discount on the item as well, which I refused since I don't want a scratched new game. So sometimes I had to be persistent. But they may have become less lenient about returns now...

Newegg is a backwards company. I have two copies of Animal Crossing pre-ordered but I can't just cancel one of them. I have to return it. Might as well just sell it for $30 on CL when it comes in.

Anyways, I've ordered Etrian Odyssey IV and Soul Hackers from NE. Yah, they came in bubble envelops...but there was no damage.

So I must be getting lucky.

Pre-ordered SMTIV and PXZ.

Just Pre-Ordered Project X Zone. Could not pass on a price like that. I hope it's worth the wait. Thanks for the deal.
