Not a deal, but I don't even see this up for pre-order at Amazon yet. I don't know how long it's been up, but I checked a little over a week ago and it wasn't up.

Just a heads up.

Nice I was wondering when this would be put up. Going to pre-order this one in store. :D

No more local co-op = no buy at full price for me :(
And perhaps we can have a master thread for all MSRP preorders. Or do we already have one?

Edit: keep reading the thread, co op features are...complicated...

As soon as I read this, I thought, "I wonder how long it will be until some wet blanket comes in and complains about this being the deal thread." Turns out, just two replies. I, for one, appreciated the heads up.

If it weren't for some MSRP topics, a lot of people may have missed out on some collector's and limited editions. It's not technically a deal, but if you miss out, you'll have to pay out the ass somewhere else for it, so in that regard it saves you money.

This isn't a CE, but it's good to know they are taking pre-orders, and details for potential alternate editions may start to trickle in soon.

Is this going to be a collector's edition?

Going to buy this day one. Not sure whether to buy this at gamestop or to see if they have a collectors edition.

I think I am done with Gamestop for good after last week. I picked up my ni no kuni preorder from them on Tuesday and had the sales guy try to keep my steelbook until I finally reminded him it came with that steelbook that was right next to the game when he pulled it out of the drawer then he informed me for an extra $3 they would guarantee my game in the event it didn't work when I got home. So now we have to pay an insurance fee so that they will stand behind the product they sell? Forget that.

Yeah, due to the link-arte or whatever it's called, at least that what I heard last time.

I had so much fun experiencing Graces together with the Mrs. Disappointed.

Of course you need insurance, gamestop is selling you their used games as new!

Due to Ni No Kuni I don't see myself picking this up right away unless they offer something truly awesome; like a steel book case or something. Otherwise I'm gonna have to wait for a price drop

That's a shame. I haven't known anyone who's wanted to play local Tales since Symphonia so it doesn't really impact me, but it was still nice to have a multiplayer option in a RPG.

A note to all Tales fan. NB said that they looking at Xillia sales to see whether they should continue publishing the series outside of Japan. So if this one doesn't sell well it could mean the end of the Tales series in NA/EU.

The same thing was said about Xillia. If Tales of Graces didn't sell well, Xillia would not be released in the US. Now we are getting Xillia and I am sure this will outsell Graces so we have nothing to worry about.

Agreed. I'm not paying full price for this thing unless it's got some kind of super rare special edition. The last game I payed full price for was Xenoblade Chronicles and that's only because I had to. Prior to that...well it had been years.

There IS co-op, just that whoever the link partner is becomes auto-controlled. So it would be easiest to do just 2 player and have each person link with the other two computer controlled party members, or don't use links in 4 player.

in the past 3-4 years i think ive purchased 2 games in an actual gamestop and both times it took about 20 minutes filled with tons of bullshit. only time i still buy is on the website and thats only for exclusive ce's or a physical preorder bonus. even then they Fuck me. the last 2 games i got from them didnt come with the bonuses and i had to email to get them shipped to me.

Okay I haven't imported the game so I'm confused. So there IS local co-op (except when link is activated or whatnot)? Very much like Graces? TIA.

I'm definitely getting it. I'd hate to see the series go away again. We already missed too many entries.

Statement that NB released. I didn't know but it seems like they said that before with Grace F from what Biggy said. Their reasoning with saying that this time they will see how much they sell is because with Grace F they didn't advertise enough so that was expected.

Either way Xillia will sell more because it already has good reviews from Japan and it is a new game than just a port. I'm not sure they actually mean it but I hope not because that would mean one less Jrpg in an already sparse genre.

Am I the only one who read this and thought, "Namco also said they were watching the sales of Ni No Kuni to see whether to release a sequel. Seeing all the chaos of Ni No Kuni, perhaps they should spend less time watching sales numbers and more time watching their order forecasting?"

Sure fingers could be pointed at Digital River, but I guess I am left to wonder if you see all these preorders come in how could you be that far out of line with your order fulfillment?

I think I'll stick to waiting for a price drop like I did with Graces. A sweet preorder bonus will absolutely shatter my stance though.
