Pretty good deal -- If I didn't have BB Credit I had put onto a pre-order already I'd jump on this. Oh well.

At least I'm getting some...Hardcover...book...thing..?

You can always price match Target's ad, which will get you $20 for the game too. You just wouldn't get the boss or the mini guide.

It only has some CDs and nicer packaging for $40 more (assuming Amazon credit as a discount) than the regular edition. That's hard to justify.


You do know that Square charges $35 for the soundtrack, right?

That article should give you a good idea which version is better even though its done with the demo.



Looks like they pretty much closed the technical gap between PS3 and 360 that XIII had. I'll still be getting it for PS3, since that's what I got XIII on. Just in case there are some bonuses for having a completed XIII save when you start.

Which is ridiculous. I'll never understand why game soundtracks cost so fucking much.

The mini guide is an 18 page PDF that is 36 pages from the Piggyback guides, looks very pretty.

Welcome to buying music from Japan. If you ever import anything, you can pay a lot more than that. That's why many retailers at cons don't import stuff anymore - it is just too damn expensive.

From what I heard you get a lightning theme.

Gah... I kinda wanted to grab this from Target to play it tonight, but I have the Amazon credit card, so I can't not get it from them. I just wish they would have done this before they evidently ran out of the Omega DLC.

Ahh I bit even though it was probably a bad idea given my final impressions that FF13 left me with. Figured I would get Revelations for 20 bucks with this credit next week.

Given I really will enjoy the battle system and soundtracks once again. Hopefully the rest of the game feels like an improvement.

I got the e-mail for the Omega DLC, mini guide, and $10 promotional credit but I didn't get the e-mail for the original promotional credit... I'll give them another day and then I'll contact them about it I guess. They already screwed me over on my order of the game + guide though. Was supposed to get the 5% off for buying them together and the discount was there and then they removed it when they shipped the game and charged me full price. Amazon is starting to piss me off lately seeing as I have to go through hoops to get the promised stuff they offer.

I just ordered a normal CD from Japan. It costed me $45.

This is a little annoying. I checked up to yesterday to see it they would do a $15-$20 promo on top of the Weapon DLC, so I didn't order. Now I wish I had.

Originally, I was going to get the collectors edition, then I remembered that the chocobo song was on it. So I said no.

Same thing happened to me. They took off the 5% after it shipped. I explained it to a CSR and he told me that because they were added as 2 separate orders (even though I ordered them both at the same time, in the same cart), they retracted the discount. I provided him with a copy of my original invoice (sent in an email) and he gave me the 5% as $3 of promotional credit (which is fine because I used a Giftcard to pay for it).

Also, I didn't get the extra $10, but another CSR put it on my account. I wonder if I'll still get another $10 from another email.

Luckily they gave me a $5 promotional credit instead of the $3 I would have saved. As for the missing $10 promotional they said I should get the e-mail sometime this week and wouldn't apply it. Sucks, I really want to order my PS Vita memory card but I'm going to wait until I get all of these credits.

So don't need to worry for those that pre-ordered.


Whoops, I guess I should have read that before I fired off that e-mail about not getting the other $10... haha.

I preordered the CE and haven't received the Omega DLC yet. Am I the only one that didn't get it yet? I know it says 2 days after it ships but I'm being impatient.

No more Omega DLC? I guess I'll just stick with my CE from Best Buy. I would have double-dipped for the credit AND Omega DLC and just flipped the copy after the promo ceased. Oh well!
