Is there any practical way at this point to get a XIII-2 steelbook from europe? Is everything sold out or is it simply impossible to import?

3DS are indeed region locked. Steelbooks are shipping to UK only, you'll have to pay out the butt for one on ebay UK after it launches.

JBHiFi.com.au (Australia) have Steelbook included as a pre-order and ship to worldwide.

From the responses I've received, Zavvi is the only one who might ship it to the US but only with the Limited and Crystal (which is sold out) Editions. I only say might be I still haven't gotten a solid confirmation from them. I got a friend in the UK to call GAME (since GAME doesn't seem to respond to email inquiries) to see if they'd ship the steelbook outside of the US and they told him that no, it would not. Nobody else seems to know...

I thought there were two choices, being the Limited, or the Crystal (which comes with a steelbook). They have descriptions for both but I can only choose the one shown. Shady site is shady.

Thanks, it seems this is a frustrating issue for others as well. Ah well, I can settle for getting the regular version, or perhaps the Chinese version if that's ever announced.

It's basically the regular version of game that comes with both English and Japanese audio, along with English subtitles.

It does not have English audio, only Japanese audio with English and Chinese sub.

See this is what I don't get. Why are 3rd party people that have nothing to do with the games making all the money, why not sell to us directly. I'm so sick of us not getting Steelbooks/Limited Editions, and the ones we do get are over-hyped games that come with a 2 dollar statue that ups the price to $150, or lame DLC extras.

Steelbook, Artbook, and a Soundtrack and they have my extra $20-$40 on release. Instead I just wait until the game hits $15-30 for the normal version.

I know, we are consistently screwed over on CEs and lack of steelbooks in the US. I don't get it. People would clearly go for it. Why do so many companies insist on leaving money on the table? If they made smarter business decisions then we could get what we want, they could get more money, and the industry as a whole would be better off. It just makes more sense.

I agree, we might as well turn this into a European CE thread.

We already have a topic for US CE. If we add in Japanese CE it will kill our wallet because they get some many CE that cost a lot more.
