Just a heads up that Bestbuy.com has the PS3 version of the new Rune Factory game for $40. That's $10 off Amazon and you can do ship to store or get free shipping through their media store link.

They have the Wii and PS3 prices reversed, as the Wii version is showing up as $50. They don't seem to be in a hurry to correct it, as it's been that way since last week.

ya, i was gonna go through them but it seems gamestop is the only one that gets a real pre-order bonus =(
http://www.gamestop....9#bonusFeatures

they have some exclusive little art/fact book that comes with the game. Amazon doesn't seem to have it so i guess i have to order through gamestop. The really lame thing is that its ONLINE ONLY Which is friggin bullshit. I gotta pay shipping and hope it doesn't arrive damaged. I dont get why i cant pre-order in store


^I feel the same way about Fate/Extra's pre-order bonus. I got Otomedius and Sonic Generation pre-ordered at my local Gamestop. I so would pre-order Fate/Extra for the bonus.

Then again, my local Gamestop has screwed me over with the bonus stuff in the past. So after November 1st, I probably won't pre-order ever again unless maybe for the Assassin's Creed Revelations Signature edition if that version is pre-order only.

I kind of want the bonus just because I was impressed with the watch I got from Aksys's website for 999.

I mean the watch did become available through Aksys instead of just Gamestop online. Does anyone know if this pre-order bonus for Fate/Extra will be available on Aksys's website/shop?

I ordered Legend of Heroes from them, got it in a box and was damaged. Exchange and it was also damaged. It just make more sense for me and amazon that I shop elsewhere. They also don't want someone who is too OCD and keep costing them money.


I just got LoH: Trails in the Sky from them when they had it as a lightning deal this week and it came in a rather bulky box and MINT inside, so maybe they are wising up? Also I noticed Persona 2 was listed as having problems which they are looking into. I live in NYC if that matters (in an apartment building with laughably small mailboxes too)


Cheers

Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage for the PS3 has finally went down. The XB360 was down for a while but the PS3 was always around the $23 range.

http://www.amazon.co...19517853&sr=8-3

UPDATE: Scratch that....it was third party. Darn!

Blazing Souls Accelate is being sold by third party but fulfilled by Amazon for $14.99 which is pretty good:

http://www.amazon.co...19518487&sr=1-8

Amazon Warehouse Deals has "Catherine" for $32.99. Hopefully by the holidays we'll see more of a price drop.

That's fine, maybe I can finally get a plusie that I pre-ordered with the DS version. Gamestop "ran out" when I came to pick up my pre-order for the DS version. Now with a delay I can pick up Otomedius Excellent and hopefully, a plusie.

Speaking of Gamestop, I might buy a gift card from them so I can pre-order Fate/Extra for the online only pre-order. $50 is enough to cover it right for shipping/taxes on a $40 game? Never ordered online from Gamestop.

Yes, but for whatever reason, I can no longer find information on Gamestop's site about the pre-order bonus.

Just noticed that too! I guess I'll pass then if the pre-order bonus was taken away or it is too late to pre-order to get that bonus.

I'm going to hope that the Aksys store will carry the bonus item. I'll buy the game from Gamestop since it looked kind of interesting.

the bonus item looks cheap though. I like more substantial bonuses like an actual item, or a soundtrack. The little booklet thingy for Fate/Extra looked like a pamphlet of 5 pages or something. The best preorder bonus in recent memory is the WATCH from the 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors game on DS. Looks amazing!

I'm not sure if this is the proper place to post this, but the Asian version of Idolm@ster 2 for PS3 (which is $62.90, as opposed to the Japanese version which is usually around $90 - $100, due to the current conversion rate.) just came in stock a little while ago on play-asia after having the "all pre-orders filled" status, since the game ships today.

http://www.play-asia...en-70-4con.html

I was skeptical before I tried the demo, since this game is in Japanese and has a fair bit of dialogue, but after playing the demo like 30 times, I realized I was hooked. Anyway, since I believe this is cheapest the game can be had, I had the feeling it may not last too long, so I thought I would post it here for those who cared about it.


Well, that was quicker than I thought. Out of stock now.

BlazBlue: Continuum Shift is $18.53....

http://www.amazon.co...19783097&sr=8-7

Although if Aksys does their Holiday sale again...this may come with a soundtrack or so.

Also, noticed that GoHastings on Amazon has Cross Edge for $16.99 (not inc. shipping). But not sure if they include the booklet and original cover. Has anyone ordered from GoHastings before?
