I dont think you pay anything on online preorders. If Im not mistaken, nothing is actually charged to your account until the item ships,


I'll test it out. I'm going to do store pickup though. I imagine it might be a little different.

Sly Cooper is so far the best game I played all year, in fact im playing it right now. Easily worth $30 in case somebody is wondering, what a mistery that such great games go on sale so rapidly but other sh!t titles take forever.

^ I think it takes a couple business days to show in your statement, but in the Best Buy invoice on the website it should say something like $15 in Best Buy Digital Credit.

the truth is ni no kuni is a jrpg/ niche game, they tend to do poorly in the U.S. To most US gamers, it is not a real "game", unless it is your typical fps like Call of duty, or your typical "madden", nba2k sports games. For any1 interested in ni no kuni, you should pick it up, and if it drops further you can still pricematch down the road


I think the price will drop down the road. They didn't make any commitment to not do additional prints of anything other than the Wizard Edition. I really doubt this will turn out like Xenoblade Chronicles which seems to sell for an extra $10 on eBay every week for the last 5 weeks.

Do you have to pay in full for online pre-orders? Also if I pre-ordered in store would it work if I only put $5 down? I'm thinking of switching over all my newegg Wii U pre-orders.


you're not paying full, they are authorizing it. paying and auth only are two separate matters.

That's good...right? Considering it's a JRPG? For some reason due to the hype I thought it was selling way better in the US and that it wouldn't go on sale for a while. I just want it to sell well enough so we get a sequel >_<


it's acually bad because of the money they spent on advertisement in Japan + studio ghibli etc. it didn't help cover the loss of the NDS one, which had very very poor sales (mainly due to that big book that was needed...)

Store pickup and shipping did not work for me because I don't have enough cash on my debit card. I'll assumes that means you have to pay in full. It might be because of the sale.

Thats assuming he has a PS3. If not, then its not really in his best interest to trade his Vita copy for it. I also beleive he'd have to pay the shipping fees to have it returned to Amazon


I was just assuming he owned a PS3 as well. I figured that most teens and adults who have a Vita have a PS3. Maybe I'm wrong though.

Still, the sales ranking is a bit misleading given the fact that it came out so late in the month.


It is not because most sales are during the first week anyway.

Wish I would have seen this before I got my copy at best buy. Oh well it doesn't look worth taking it back to best buy and ordering off amazon.

Thanks, I'll be heading in to PM Ni No tomorrow and Bioshock ultimate rapture edition ($20 @ Amazon) to grab Sly for $10 or Dead Space 3 for $25 oop (PM Kmart). I figure after the price matches $25 is essentially like getting DS3 for $15 used (unless I wait for a Gamefly sale and get the online pass included)....

I made sure to check Amazon one more time before I headed out to peruse through my local Best Buy's selection. The first time I checked was maybe an hour and a bit before I looked again, and I am glad they were quick to match it!

I don't like giving money to the Best Buy here as many of their employees are poor in customer service and politeness standards.

Don't mean to hijack the thread, but am I able to PM the giftcard deal over at BB? I just happened to reserve both MG and Crysis today so that'd be awesome if I could get $4 in RZ certs + another $40 in giftcards :bouncy:


It's YMMV but I've done tru gc pm's a ton. Don't try to do everything at once just get the pm & come back later for the pre-orders. The end result will most likely be you each game marked to $40 & them ''charging'' you for a $40 BB gc. It's 2 instant pm's so that's good for me

You could just order one then return it on the receipt. Im sure you knew this already tho. You could probably ditch the Griffy code tho for something (id be interested in it too if you do).
