hmm this was mentioned earlier, but looks like the gamestop page finally has a little blurb on what the extra is. Looks like its some kinda little booklet? Not much info given. Is this REALLY just a gamestop exclusive? Id rather order from amazon or anywhere else.

Actually it looks like its Online only, so i have to pay both tax AND shipping. What the hell?? Is it letting anyone else get it for pre-ordering in store? That seems like a huge hassle for an extra we have no real info about

Just to clarify. Fate Extra Limited Edition is not exclusive to GS (amazon link here). However, the pre-order bonus, the fact booklet that is sort of a 20-page magazine, is.

Got mine, but it's almost in perfect condition, other than one notch that looks similar to spider wrap damage. Mine was shipped in a bubble mailer.

Usually, the games I got, that are in boxes, like PSP games, come in that plastic wrapped with a cardboard piece, or in a box with the air pillows inside. Sucks that this time, you guys got the bubble mailer.

I'm guessing they have a very high return rate on the game because I am seeing reports on other sites of most of the warehouses shipping it out in bubble pouches and the game box is thinner than previous releases and doesn't have shrink-wrap, so it's very easy to damage. I cancelled my Amazon pre-order last week after I saw a box mock-up and ended up buying it locally. It cost me a few extra dollars, but at least I don't have to make a trip to the UPS store or Post Office for the inevitable return. By the way, the soundtrack isn't an exclusive or even preorder bonus. Every store I have seen it at has the same soundtrack included version on the shelf.

craappp a lot of people saying they got their copies of P2 in bubble mailers. I better go through my piles of games and see if that happened. I think i got some mailers the other day but assumed they were something else. Hopefully its not this game. I usually have these things shipped in boxes from amazon. The only stuff ive had issues with getting damaged from them are art books. They dont package those well at all most of the time

I ordered it with a Blu-ray and they put it in a box. It seems to be totally random though. A few months ago I ordered Legend of Heroes with 2 movies and it came in a mailer.

My P2 came from Amazon in a box and was in perfect condition. So they're not shipping all of them in mailers, anyway. Sucks for those who did get damaged copies. I wish Amazon would just stop using those mailers.

Jesus tap dancing christ. I just checked and my persona 2 just shipped a few days ago.. which is awesome, that means it sat in some transit station of the weekend. If its a bubble mailer im sure its crushed. I notice their webpage shows its not avalible through them anymore because its under review. You'd think they would catch on by now

DONT USE A DAMN BUBBLE MAILER FOR LE STUFF!


Amazon used to be great for shipping but ive been getting a LOT of damaged artbooks and stuff in lately. Its starting to piss me off actually. Did they change shipping companies or wharehouses or something? They have seriously gone down hill.

Actually they've stopped selling Persona 2 because of the damage to the box during shipping. I bought it the day before they posted the explanation for the temporary sales freeze of Persona 2, and they seem to be holding my shipment. This isn't rocket science - I hope they resolve it soon.

Ah someone shares my pain. Actually Amazon did not get any new shipping companies. I know because I have family who works in a distribution facility. I don't know how they ship items but it's a bad place at Amazon. They are treating their employees like crap and in return I can see a lot of people not giving a jack Fuck about people's items.

Also it might just be Amazon trying to save costs for whatever reason and then having it backfire in the end with damaged products.

Just wanted to let you guys know, who are interested in the PSP Black Rock Shooter game, that NISA wants to see the demand for the Premium Box version with the White Rock Shooter figma. They are doing a poll on Siliconera. NISA linked to the poll from their facebook fanpage as well. Here's the link: http://www.siliconer....-out-of-japan/

i know, thats what i was saying. I noticed that they had froze it. I ordered mine a while back, on the 18th i think it was, and found it strange that it shipped a few days ago when shipping was frozen. I was worried because it sat in a shipping station durring the weekend >_< If its in a bubble mailer im boned

Jesus.. well that doesn't sound good. That sucks that theyre treating their employees like that, if thats true. I find it kinda hard to belive they just had paramedics standing by to help people that fainted then fired them o_O Its been a couple months that ive noticed they've been shipping stuff poorly. For me its been mostly art books. Ive had to send like 5 back so far, and i think i got more sitting downstairs that i gotta check in on now.

Strangely enough, my P2:IS came in a bubble wrapper, crammed into the little mailbox... and was completely undamaged except MAYBE for a very subtle crease that could've been just part of the box's design since that was about where the extra bit of cardboard for holding the CD case was. But yeah, I usually got minor dents in the corners from them. I didn't usually worry too much, but it's probably worth considering just going to GameStop instead for stuff like this that I care enough about.

So far I've had good luck with my Gamestop not gutting CE or LE products, just normal games. That said I have had pretty good luck with Amazon too. Some pretty messed up boxes, but the contents have been good.

My P2:IS was delivered on the 21st according to UPS, but it's nowhere to be found in my building's mail room. I contacted Amazon support last night and they refunded me in full for it no questions asked. Hopefully my re-order will be sent in a box once it's available to be purchased again.

good news: fry's (concord, ca) protects P2:IS with an acrylic box.
bad news: it also slaps the price sticker directly on the non-shrink wrapped outer carton.

If it's pre-ordered it shouldn't be like that, at worst they stick a price sticker on anyway and theirs are usually very easy and clean to remove. But if it WAS a choice between a superficial crush and that? Yeah, I'd go with the superficial crush any day.

I requested a replacement for my crushed Persona 2 as soon as it became available again on Amazon. Of course they sent it in another bubble mailer and it was crushed again. It's kind of surprising that they would continue to ship these in a bubble mailer after all the complaints they got. They only difference for the second shipment was that it was delivered by A1 Courier rather than UPS.

I put in a request for yet another copy. If it arrives crushed again, I'll give up and ask for a refund.
