I was like 260+ on the 360 wait list, but was also on the ps3 wAit list and was offered ps3 version. Says it won't ship for 1-3 weeks but who cares?

it tells me waitlist is full. So they only had 5 copies of this game for sale at the gold box price? WTF, amazon...


Of course they didn't have just 5 copies. They had probably hundreds of copies. It was just such a great deal that everyone pounced. People just angry and uninformed so they like to say some crap like "they only had 5 copies!!! :bomb:!!"

my gold box changed to Add to Cart. that's how i knew I was off the waitlist.

The only game I would've bought sold out instantly. Fuck you 40 minute League of Legends games. :(. Oh well, this will make my wallet more prepared for the upcoming slew of AAA titles coming up this fall.

Is this a meme or something? I don't get what's the big deal about EDF.


I would tell you to buy Earth Defense Force 2017 and see for yourself, but I see now that the game is going for crazy high prices on the Amazon Marketplace.

The game is a fucking blast.

and some people dont recognize sarcasm. Were sure they had more than 5 copies, were exaggerating. Honestly i would be surprised if they had more than a hundred or so of these with how fast they went though


my gold box changed to Add to Cart. that's how i knew I was off the waitlist.

hmm guess i'll have to stick around and check in on it from time to time. How late did you join the waitlist? for me it was 4 minutes after it went live. My main concern is that i have no popup window or anything. Just says im on the wait list

Yep. But you have to keep the browser on Amazon's site and it comes up pretty unobtrusively-- no sound or anything, so make sure to keep an eye on the tab/window with Amazon in it.

You only get like 2-3 minutes to add it to cart from waitlist before you're kicked off and they go to the next person.

I wish they had a "you're out of luck, you don't need to keep staring at us" alert but I'm sure they don't specifically so you keep mindlessly browsing around looking for deals.

lets be honest to those singing the praises of the original.. it was.. OK. The only reason it was amusing was its b-movie appeal. Unfortunatly the game was also b-quality, with pretty poor graphics, menu's, ect. I actually only played a few levels then got kinda boared. I heard this version is a lot better though. Hppefully it has a better fleshed out story

Got a copy. Just went back to amazon page and I had less than 90 seconds to put in my cart. But it does say I will have it on Thurs Juky 28th. Got the 360 version since the PS3 waitlist was full. Good deal.

What # were you on the waitlist?

I got in on the 360 waitlist around 134 when it took me about 1 minute to realize the PS3 and 360 waitlists were separate. (and I went for PS3 first :/ ). Still not giving up entirely, though...

hmm does it at least tell you if you missed your wait list call? Ive been checking the page every few minutes. but there was probably a 6-7 minute stretch there where i didn't. Would be lame if it passed then =P It still just shows me in the wait list.

Sorry dude, I honestly have no idea which # I was. The PS3 list was full though when I tried to get on the waitlist. I went for PS3 1st, then tried 360 and got on the list. But did not catch which #.

yeah, you'll have a popup with "Sorry, your chance has expired" (as a leftover from the "hurry up and add to cart" popup).

At least this is how it worked the last time I was on a waitlist (and missed the popup :( ) about 3-4 months ago.

I just looked up this edf insect armageddon game and honestly, it just looks like a 3'rd person shooter version of dynasty warriors mixed with lost planet skins.the visuals look bland and uninspired. As for the gameplay, it seems ok. I do hope that my fellow cheapies who missed out on this good deal for edf get a good deal on it soon.

thanks. No popup or anything for me. I even have everything disabled on firefox for amazon. I guess i'll keep waiting. I do notice it says 'SOLD OUT' on the description. I wonder if that means everything was claimed and bought? Its kinda annoying because im starving. I want to go get some food but im waiting on this ;P

I was shocked to see EDF sold out mere minutes after the deal started (I believe I checked 3 minutes in), and I got on the waitlist, but after thinking about it, I think I can wait for this to drop to $19.99 (again) or lower (:lol:). So I'll just let my turn pass if it comes around. I hope some of you are able to get a copy!

One reason I can wait is that I currently have EDF:IA checked out from a local library (I just started it tonight and it really is as fun as I've heard); if I really enjoy it, maybe I'll buy it later.

its not that i didn't care for it, its just not as awesome as everyone seems to make it out to be. The B-movie feel is cool, but the problem is the B-game quality that goes with it. Maybe i'll pick it up and try it again or something, but i just never got super into it. It was an average game IMO
