Will you get that Poptart looking Animal Crossing 3DS XL if it comes out here?

He won't because

A god damn collectors edition bundle for a game like Animal Crossing kinda demands a physical copy. Its BS that were getting a shitty digital copy. Basically just looks like theyre trying to pawn off some stock by slapping little logos on a 3DS XL

Just curious, anyone do Instore Pickup at Gamestop often? It says you don't get charged, so does that mean you can pay with Credit/Coupon's instore instead?

If thats the case, no harm in trying for the artbook/possible early release

why does animal crossing have to be physical ? it's one of those games that is always good to have handy and it's a minutes a day game. Prrfect for a download title. That's why it's sold 800,000 copies digitally in Japan so far

sorry for off topic

but damn reviews for this game are lookin good

A little off topic, but here are the IGN and Joystiq reviews. Got a 9.6/10 and 9/10, respectively. Overall it has a 92 on Metacritic and is defenetily one of the most critically-acclaimed games on the 3DS. So happy to see this succeed!

Has anyone gotten a copy of the normal 3DS game? I've been seeing several reports (with pictures) of Game Stop selling the game (with artbook) early.

This.

I ended up passing because my store told me even if I did do pickup, I'd likely not get the artbook, and possibly not get on release date.

I usually do and yeah you dont get charged before you pick it up. I never use Credit/Coupons at Gamestop (Usually never have it), but I would not see why you couldn't. As for getting the preorder item early, I would be careful, as in making sure they have your preorder in their store computer. I had done Preorder InStore Pickup for Xenoblade Chronicles when it came out last April and was screwed out of the artbook because they only had enough for the instore physical preorders (I still dont know how that made since cause I should have gotten the artbook regardless). At least I got 2 of those books thanks to GS Customer Service (I still dont know how I got the second artbook.)

Don't take it as rude, but this has been discussed in the past pages for a while now (edit: okay, not a while; just a day. I swear, there's been so much going on that I feel like it's been a few days since I first heard about what Canada did) - and new reports say that they realized their mistake and aren't selling it any longer.

That being said, hope you can still get lucky and nab a copy. I know I can't wait 'til the 4th.

Ha it's okay. I skimmed the last few pages real quick and it seemed you guys were hearing rumors about it being sold early so I though I post it to help out.

I really haven't heard about this selling early thing about one hour ago and this link was posted on the screwattack twitter like two minutes before I made that post.

I keep hearing so many different things that it's all starting to get jumbled in my head.

Now someone's posted on another forum that his Gamestop already had the artbooks and that they gave it to him when he went in to pay off his preorder. I attempted calling the store I preordered the bundle from and ended up talking to a very busy manager who didn't have time to look and see if they were in. I'll just waltz in tomorrow after classes and see what's going on.

Called 2 Game Stops, got 2 different answers.
- One said they weren't getting shipments until Feb 8
- Another said there was no date for the game in the system, but the bundle had a date of Feb 5. They said they would not sell the game until that date.

Apparently since the street date's allegedly been entirely lifted their shipments likely won't process until release day, although I saw someone in Florida saying that their GameStop already had copies and sold him one because there wasn't a street date.

I have no idea what that means for the bundle if that's true, or for people who ordered the game or bundle online to have shipped to their homes like I did.

Anyone care to clear up the shipping delay warning on Amazon? Was that put up just as a precaution or are you definitely not getting a copy on launch week if you pre-ordered after that went up?

I pre-ordered about two days after the warning went up... Anyone else in this boat? If they don't ship mine by launch day I might just get it digitally... There any good reasons not to do so, other than their recovery steps being iffy?

Thanks in advance for replies.

I don't really understand why Canada would get their shipments so early and US get them so late.

Mine said the 8th. I'll swing by and pay off my stuff to ensure artbooks and game held for me

@TheGuardianWolf: Given that just about every store has stopped taking orders or has put them on backorder, I'm guessing Amazon buyers are every bit as screwed.

If you've got at least a GB of space free on your SD card I don't really see any reason not to get it digitally, unless you really want the case and manual.

I personally like the ability to use the game on more than one handheld, too, along with having the case and manual. There's also resale value if anyone is crazy enough to want to sell their copy somewhere down the road.

Even if it was an XL, digital copy = insta-pass. Seriously...when will these companies get it through their minds that digital media is never going to adequately replace physical media...
