I'm having the same problem as a bunch of people here, I have it pre-ordered, but I also have the standard one on preorder..

I might just cancel and use Gamestop credit on Madden instead.

UUGGGHHH, & I was planning on pre-ordering today after finding out they stopped pre-orders for in-store & discovering Amazon was out of pre-orders. I even cancelled my Newegg order w/ that $10 off code. Maybe I'll get lucky when I order online, considering Atlus tweeted that you can still get it from GameStop's site a few hours ago.

I find it odd that you can still PO online if stores stopped taking pre-orders. I mean, if stores stopped taking POs on Sunday, how is it that they've lasted this long online, especially since Amazon sold out a while ago (even with the short period when it returned in stock)?

Perhaps there's a limit as to how many pre-orders stores allow, then a limit for online. *shrugs*

DAMN IT, stupid billing information error. I swear, they better not run out by the time I get this fixed.

Probably because they put a quota for every store way in advance so that everyone in an area with a gamestop has an equal chance to preorder. If this is true then that allotment is less than the total amount that Atlus agreed to ship to gamestop. So, the leftovers are put online.

I was able to pre-order on Monday.

I'll trust a tweet from Atlus before anything slidecage says, I'm sure they would have said something before then or about anyone preordering before a certain time.

Wow. Pre-ordered on GameStop's site when I looked at the thread earlier today. Good thing I didn't delay any longer or I might've missed out entirely, like I did with the original P4 CE from Amazon.

Just make sure to double check because it seems that Gamestop might have taken excess preorders and might have to cancel the late ones...^^

I was unable to preorder last night in store while I was picking up Guild Wars 2, but was able to place an order online just now. I know I'm late to the party, stupid life, but I hope they don't cancel mine...

I do like that this does seem to be a legit limited edition and we shouldn't see dozens of copies on the markdown shelves.

I'm amazed that GS is still has this listed online... I just can't believe that GS hasn't sold out or that they simply haven't/can't take the page down.

If you weren't able to preorder from Amazon, might as well take a chance on the Gamestop one then jsut hope for the best that they don't cancel.

Atlus posted on Facebook within the last day or two announcing that Gamestop.com was the only location available for preorder, so I'm guessing they actually still have stock to sell.

I saw that but I still can't help but wonder. I'm wondering if Atlus actually has word from GS that they have it available online, or if Atlus is relying on the item page on GS.:-k

And what I'm wondering is this: Amazon sold out a long time ago, and given how fast they sold out, the people on the fence and the re-sellers would probably rush to pre-order the only other place that still has it available. I can't imagine that GS would outlast Amazon that long.

Granted, it could still be available but unless the allocation numbers were grossly skewed in GS's favor, I don't get why they still have it in stock.

I'm absolutely amazed that Gamestop still has this available, especially considering how quick Amazon's stock went. Either there's some major screw up here, or it went something like:

Gamestop - 8,000 copies
Amazon - 2,000 copies

The articles I read seem to conjure up these images of Capcom executives sitting in a dark room with a cauldron and cackling about how no one will be able to buy this game used.


Do you really think I could start a fast food restaurant called McDonaldz and use the golden arches as my logo and get away with it?

I have a feeling that Gamestop is taking more orders than they can fill.


That's how I feel too. Even if Amazon got less of the 10,000 than GameStop they should've sold out by now. With both online and instore orders it seems weird that they still have some in stock considering Amazon sold out on the day it popped up and the other day when they started taking orders again. Either Amazon is rationing their stock out a little at a time up to the release date or GameStop is taking more orders than they can fill. Maybe I'm wrong on both accounts. Either way I feel more confident with my Amazon preorder than my GameStop preorder.
