I hope newegg does another $10 off so I can snag the game from there. I forgot to do it when I did all my other preorders :/


Me too. Got Muramasa Rebirth preordered for $30 for Vita, would preorder both versions of this game if discounts became available.

I wish the retailers would update their sites about the preorder bonuses. I don't want to commit to one until they do


The day Atlas announced the art book pre-order bonus, this game skyrocketed to the top 10 on the Amazon VG Chart, and has remained there or close since. Wait too long and it may be too late. You know Amazon will provide the books while supplies last, so why bother holding out?

you make a good point. I can always cancel if I decide to go with another retailer, just checked out at amazon.

You are still young there are vast swaths of the internet that will do that as well.


Hah, definitely not young. I think I just successfully managed to avoid that portion of the internet at some point in my life. Probably around the time I stopped watching anime. Weirds me out, man.

I remember I did, but now it was as if I never pre-ordered. Its like they removed the listing and relisted or something and voided my pre-order.
Because I KNOW I preordered a long time ago.


This happened to me too... I had that pre-ordered for a loooooong time. Kind of annoying, but I'm not too bummed about it.

For those of you who with previously canceled preorders, who got Amazon to honor the original price, what was your approach? I still have my original email canceling my order, but I never have tried something like that before. I'm not about to throw away $10 if I dont have to.

Thank you.

Why not order the limited edition? It seems truly limited

I was very tempted by the LE of Muramasa, especially for the custom Hori Face Cover (not as much for the custom Hori screen protector). My Vita does already have a regular black Hori face cover though (and I love it). But $60 is just too steep for me and I have to draw the line on LEs based on cost. Too many games I want these days and I need to limit spending to accommodate that.

For Dragon's Crown, the preorder artbook WOULD push me over the edge to order, especially since it starts at $40 (Vita) and $50 (PS3); but I'll still try to wait for a Newegg $10 off promo for those, if possible.

Until Amazon updates their description to include the artbook, I'm suspicious that they'll provide one at all. Sooner or later some of these retailers will add the artbook info to their preorders, you would think?

Wow, thanks for the heads up guys - I had both versions preordered when they first went up for the cheaper price. Not only did they match that on a new preorder for both, but they even gave me the Gold Box discounts I had on them before. Both games for under $60? Yup, I can work with that! :D

The game is still three months from release and the bonus was only announced four days ago, two days of which were a weekend. Not sure why that's "not good" as it will certainly be put up soon and is very unlikely to be as limited as people seem to be anticipating.

Honestly speaking, it means nothing.

Gamestop listed a preorder bonus for NG2S+, yet it was removed on the last day without warning. On the other hand, Amazon had listed the Muramasa preorder item (GS too I think) well before it was announced, so it goes both ways. If you don't see it come the time of release, just cancel and go elsewhere.

so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more


guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

Well, after the $30 orders got cancelled, I have my "new" PS3 pre-order locked in since May 2, 2012.
I hope Amazon to apply a first in first out if this book gets really limited.

Cool, now we have reference if Amazon doesn't ship the book with our preorders. Thanks. :)

There is also a product preview trailer on newegg that shows the Art Book at the very end... Of course its all in Japanese script so I guess it could be nothing of note too.

I have my pre-order in. I've enjoyed all of VanillaWare's previous titles, so they get considerable slack where my wallet is concerned. I'm also quite happy that they went for a more mid-tier price. More companies need to release their games at a wider price range.

Called CS, replaced my original order and they gave me a $30 discount towards the purchase. Paid in full with AMZ gift cards. Thanks for the heads up :)

lucky. They did match both of mine but they didn't match the GB discount one of them had.

How did you guys who got it for the old price get amazon to price match the old pre-order price? Did you e-mail or do a chat? Was it a hassle? They cancelled mine as well long ago and I'd LOVE to get it for $30.

Anyone know if the dragons crown artbook is amazon/gamestop only? i pre ordered the vita version at BBY but notice they dont list one. I  need to know if i should cancel it and order at GS instead. Sooner rather than later so i dont miss out on it

 

 

 

For those of you who with previously canceled preorders, who got Amazon to honor the original price, what was your approach? I still have my original email canceling my order, but I never have tried something like that before. I'm not about to throw away $10 if I dont have to.

Thank you.

 

i just emailed them with a slightly pissed off message and copy/pasted my priginal confirmation. I did it a long time ago though. its probably too late now. Kinda neat getting the ps3 version for.. 25, 30? forget what it was. With the artbook

Shit. I was just denied via chat. Is there a customer service e-mail address, where I can forward my original confirmation?

 

edit: I followed up with an e-mail. If I'm unsuccessful, I'll go ahead and pre-order the game, and save money through my other routine purchases.

Thanks for reminding me about this. I remember when it was canceled and never bothered to get the price changed when the new listings came up soon after. Sent an email and was quickly rejected by some basic form letter about policy and which didn't reflect that someone actually read what I wrote. Sent another and was told that the old listing was "offered by different suppliers rather than the suppliers of your recent orders" but the rep changed the prices anyway. It really depends on who you get when you email them, and it doesn't hurt to try again (I'd give up after 3 tries, personally, and would only so much if I felt like the CSR was completely clueless). If you haven't emailed yet, give it a shot, there is still plenty of time until release.

It's not a huge discount, but the PS3 version is $45.12 right now at Amazon.
