Some people around here for what ever reason like feeling like there video games are worth or are going to be worth something. It feels at times people just buy some of these so called "rare items" just because of that reason and have no intention of playing it. I buy what I enjoy, I find collecting enjoyable as a hobby and purely just that. Not because I hope to make a ton of money years from now.


Behind this mindset all the way. I never understood how people could place so much importance on a collectible/premium edition of a game that they would meet with repulsion and anger the news of additional runs of said edition of the game. I've seen it a few times on these boards and it always throws me for a loop. They use words like "devalue" and "company integrity" in their rants but all they're really saying is "this lollipop is mine and no one else should get one!". Like they've completely forgotten they are dealing with a video game.
With that said, I hope Aksys has enough watches ordered that all that want one tomorrow can get one or at least have plans in place to sell them in their store for a small profit.

What's not to understand?

They collect because they think it'll be worth money and when they find out a company is printing more copies, that means that their collection will now be worth less money than before.

I'm not saying that they're right (in fact, I think collecting video games for profit is beyond stupid), but it's not rocket science as to why those people would be upset about companies producing more of what was perceived as a limited edition item.

Apologies, I wrote that with the exclusion of resellers in mind but for got to type it in there. Hope that clears up my post from earlier.

Any truth to Amazon only shipping one watch per house even if you were able to order more than one copies?

I think it's fair for them to release more pre-order bonus editions now, but they shouldn't advertise the watch as pre-order bonus if they start selling the watch by itself. They can make a similar watch and sell it if they want.

So just to double check: they will be putting the pre order bonus watch back up sometime today? How will we know when its up? It appears to be the regular standard edition without the watch right now. Im watching the 3ds version

I tried to sign up to be notified, but it just said it was the regular version. Guess I'll have to be watching CAG and Amazon all day.

I gotta atleast get an order in for the Vita

Not sure how much I trust the "afternoon" comment from neogaf as he still says "It's up to Amazon"
As such, I will continue to play the waiting game.

I'm leaning towards the 3DS version, but if I can't get that I'll go with the Vita version if it means I'll get a watch!

I'd lean towards the afternoon as to when they might put it up, but I can't say for sure.

"They MIGHT"
"I can't say for sure"
"I'd LEAN towards"

Clearly he/she isn't trying to earn anyone's trust.

I don't see the problem with them selling the exact same watch in their store. It's not as if they're advertizing the watch as a collectible or a numbered production item. The way I see it in that scenario, if you pre-ordered the game, you gained the watch for free but anyone else that wants it must pay separately for it.

As for when the watch will be up, that is all on Amazon and when they update their pages. Some people have suggested that they tend to update their pages during the afternoon and therefore, that would be a good time to check. I wouldn't put to much faith in the auto notify they have up since a lot of people claimed they got the notification days after the first wave of pre-order watches went out of stock. Best thing to do is just keep checking periodically.
Testaroo: Yeah, that is true. A Aksys rep at Neogaf confirmed that Amazon is under instructions to ship one watch per address. Only exception is if you ordered a game for each platform, Vita and 3DS, then you would get two watches per address.

That's the only reason I plan on ordering both copies, wish Amazon would update already with this. I need to go to sleep! xD"

The one with the bonus will have (with Pre order bonus item) next to it and be 39.99 instead of 39.96. On an unrelated note I bought my vita a month ago and this will be the first game I buy for it.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

i can confirm it's live, just completed checkout for it with the pre-order bonus. Weird thing is it estimates shipping in 2-3 weeks, which is before the actual release date, but I'm sure that's just a placeholder.

Must have been the 3DS version. I got the same thing and the vita version says releases on Oct 24.

Awesome! Pre-ordered a copy for 3DS! 999 was my favorite game from last year and I was worried I'd miss the watch for this (I was lucky and managed to get the 999 watch from Aksys).

Random

I see it's letting me order more even though I already have 2 preorders for it. I thought the limit was supposed to be 1 per version.

The watches are what's limited 1 per version/household
