Kinda cool. I didn't preorder this from BB (I got mine with the skin from Newegg) but I'm hoping best buy gave these out to preorders otherwise it is kind of a dick move for them to sell them on their webiste for a profit.

Are these the same or similar to the one that comes with the solid gold edition? I have one coming. Curious if its the same. if its is I wont bother ordering one of these.

Also the wallpapers are available free from atlus. I guess its just a link to that webpage that is included with these and the solid gold edition.

If you scroll down and read the fine print, it says this is only available if you pre-order the game. Otherwise, it clearly states on the lower right-hand corner on the back of the skin with a black box around it "NOT FOR SALE". Pretty shitty of Best Buy, a major retailer, to completely ignore this if true.

The URL for the wallpapers is on the skin itself.

Or you could just order the game from amazon and apparently still get the skin free.

At least, the one I ordered over the weekend came with it.

If you buy the game at Newegg you will get the Vita skin, which I did recently. (Ordered a Vita not too long ago XD)
What Best Buy is doing is really low.... Disappointed in them right now....

Newegg has them also and it's stated in the title of the order page. I ordered one a few weeks ago, and it came with the skin, no problems.

I don't really see how this is low. If they didn't get enough pre-orders to exhaust their stock of the pre order bonus, selling the item separately isn't low IMO. People who forgot or missed the pre order have a chance to get it People who want to wait to try to get the game cheaper later on can still order it and get it without having to pay MSRP at launch.

I would guess not by now but it wouldn't hurt to ask your store might still have them around somewhere

I would normally agree with you except for the fact that it clearly states on the packaging "NOT FOR SALE". This is not only low, but in my eyes, criminal. Best Buy is essentially stealing money from ATLUS.

It looks cool. I didn't like the way it made the screen feel though. It felt rough and like it was harder to drag my finger across it. I ended up taking the skin off.

Lol do you actually think ATLUS just gave these to best buy without them getting any compensation ? And your NOT FOR RESALE point is a double edged sword have you traded in any of those dj heros or udraw games that have not for resale on the back of them what do you think happen to those? Either way shady or not I rather buy it from best buy if I was interested instead of from the eBay scalpers or for that fact even the people on here selling them for $20

Well, there's nothing criminal about it. At most it would be a civil issue between Best Buy and Atlus as to whether any contract between them was broken in Best Buy reselling these outside of the pre order. My inclination is the "Not for sale" sticker is meant moreso to prevent ebay gouging and not this situation.

No, it's the opposite; "Not for sale" notices are for retailers but it doesn't preclude individuals from selling it. It's like how mattress tags say "it is illegal to remove this tag"--that is ONLY for the retailer prior to the sale and delivery of the mattress.

Not exactly. Those tags on mattresses are due to very specific consumer protection laws. These stickers on promotional items have no specific law addressing them, it's only the contractual relationship between the two companies that govern it.

I'm saying it's similar in terms of who is bound by the particular obligation in question, not legality vs contractual responsibilities.

The whole reason this pre-order item even EXISTS was to encourage people to buy P4G. For Best Buy to circumvent that is EXTREMELY scummy. My real point is that Best Buy is double dipping and re-selling a pre-order item that they had no hand in producing and for a drastic price. And if my memory serves me correctly, this was also the most expensive pre-order bonus for ATLUS to produce to-date. Making it just that much more of a underhanded move. It may not be "legally" wrong, but it is in terms of morals IMO.

You kinda have to "wear it in"... I thought this at first as well, but after a couple of days there's no difference at all.

Also, I'm fine with BB doing this, just not for $10. That's at 25% of the cost of the game itself! Now, if it were $3, I'd grab one. $1 and I'd pick up a few, at $10 that's pretty much price gouging and reminds me of something TRU would do.

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?

Did anyone Fuck up when trying to put this thing on? I got one tiny bubble under mine and its driving me crazy. I was considering buying another one but they were going for around 20-30 on eBay.

People have reported that you can take it off and put them back on as much as you want. Makes sense seeing how it isn't a sticker, it's a skin. Just be careful on whatever corner you decide to start pulling up on.
