Open it? Considering that it's just a slip of bubble wrap it really wouldn't hurt to take a look. The watchband is several pieces of metal connected to the body by three thin plastic straps, so it may look like it's in pieces but that's what it's supposed to look like.

Aksys IS planning on restocking the game/watch combo pack soon. How soon is anyone's guess. Might as well pay $35 for the game and watch than $35 on ebay for the watch alone. ;)

$37. At least that's what they charged me for my game + watch shipped.

I don't think your going to get this cheap, your better off just buying the game and the watch.


I'm mostly just worried Aksys won't restock the bundle. I'm keeping my fingers crossed but I don't know how likely it'll be.

Though I have heard it's a great game. My best friend's playing it right now and she's totally hooked.

Wow I want this game SOOOOOOOOOO BADLY!!! But I don't know what to do!
With that $20 gift card from Livingsocial that I got I can't decide if I should use it on 999 or Advance Wars: Days of Ruin. AW isn't sold new elsewhere but my e-rewards balance is at $12 and don't know if I can get the $25 card in time...pffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff :whee:

Your concerns are valid.


From the Aksys store:

The watches are now gone. :( We will have the game back up in the store soon, but it will be just the game—no bundle.

To those that missed out on the watch, it's still a good game even without the watch, so buy it now or wait to see if it goes on sale, but buy it and support Aksys so they will keep providing some of the most unique and coolest bonus items I've seen.

Not really, because the post on the Aksys store page saying there are no more watches was just updated today. I believe the post you mentioned that they are coming back in stock was from a few days ago, so I'd say that the earlier post as been made obsolete by ( or corrected by) the newer post.

There's actually a more recent thread on their forums where an Aksys Staff Member says:

"Unfortunately, the bundles have all sold out.

We're currently waiting on our re-order of copies of 999, which should arrive early next month, but alas, we're no longer offering the bundle on our online site. Only the game. :( "

So yeah, looks like the watches are all gone now.

Oh gosh, now I feel horrible. :(

It looks like I'm for sure cosplaying Santa though...so if anyone does want to part with their watch, please let me know. I'd be willing to pay within reason for it, or trade some junk in exchange (I've got games/comic books...help a sister out!).

I'm super bummed. I couldn't afford the bundle when it was in stock, and now I've got the money it's gone. And just when I get my hopes up, too. Bah~

Any free moment I had this past week I spent it with this game. It is 5:25am and I just got the True Ending. What an amazing experience.

My thanks go out to every one of you that peer pressured me into getting the game. Brilliant.

Yeah, I was up until 2am last night....thought I had the "True Ending" because a bunch of new info was revealed and I got the game credits, but there are still 2 more endings I haven't seen (based on the 6 pictures at the top of the save screen, the leftmost 2 pictures are still hidden).

I've been enjoying the way the game lets you form your own guesses on the background and motives of each person and then you revise your guesses as more information is revealed on each additional playthrough. However, I do get a bit tired having to solve the same puzzles over and over, but at least I finally started writing down the solutions to some of the more tedious ones (like lining up the numbered pins in the right order).

I'm looking forward to getting the rest of the endings, but hopefully I'll be able to get them fairly easily w/o having to repeat the same endings I've already gone through.

I wasn't sure I was going to dig this game. I mainly ordered it because I knew I could make my money back if I didn't get it, but I'm totally going to recommend it to all of my friends now. I'm on my third playthrough, and while solving the same puzzles again and again is perhaps a bit tedious (perhaps an option to skip through the escape section and just view any pertinent conversations that would have occurred therein would have been a good idea), the story is enthralling. Feels like Battle Royale meets Ten Little Indians.

Anyone on the fence about buying this one should take the plunge. Even at full price, it's a bargain.

^ you know how there's those little silver clips hanging off one end? they need to sorta wrap around the bars on the otherside of the watch and then clamp into the otherside of itself (the silver clips, they fold into themselves, but you need the bar between otherwise its not gonna close the watch). It can be a bit a pain to get it in yourself if you don't have smaller hands, have someone else do it for you.

Aside from that, I finished all endings few days ago, and no doubt I lost alot of sleep playing this game.. was HOOKED! Everything good said about it was true and I'm happy I grabbed a bundle near the end of availability!

One end of the strap should have two silver clasps that open up and then hook around the wire rods on the end of the other strap and the snap closed. It's a bit tricky to put it on yourself.

Almost immediately after posting about it and having a whole mess of trouble with it, I finally managed to snap one closed.

I have super tiny hands, but the snapping process was just way too difficult for me to do. There should have been instructions on that, imho--written in the same Engrish as the rest of the instructions ("School the time" made me giggle).

I've been playing 999 after borrowing it from a friend and I'm hooked...definitely liking Santa, which is good since he was my initial favorite. I'm a total Titanic buff so this is making me really giddy. Just went through the second or third set of doors. It gets a little TL;DR at times and I absolutely abhor math (the others must think Junpei is stupid...I keep getting everything wrong) but I'm having fun so far.

^ I'm sorry, but when I read "I have super tiny hands" it made me think of that old Burger King commercial where the guy couldn't eat a Whopper because his hands were too tiny :)

Glad you're enjoying the game. I have to wait until the 3DS is launched in order to play this, Ghost Trick and Okamiden.

As I was playing it, I was really uneasy about having it around, lol.
