Wow I'm glad I kept my xzone preorder at Gamestop. Back when the pre-order was offered I noticed the LE wasn't listed so I didn't wanna take any chances despite the awesome price. If this becomes the case for my Shin Megami Tensei IV pre-order though that would suck so I might have to place a pre-order down at Gamestop today.

 

Atlus actually does first print editions though and then reprints later....also the Newegg page has the CE looking version of that up. I trust Atlus a heck of a lot, and I doubt they would screw over their fans on editions like this. To make sure take a screenshot  of the SMT 4 page showing the package and if it's any different it will give a good chance to complain. Just my 2 cents and yes i'm an Atlus fanboy...SMT games rock!

We should be fine with SMTIV at Newegg. 

 

Amazon, Gamestop, Newegg, BestBuy, and Walmart are offical retailers

Yeah I love Atlus games as well, it does appear to be the limited first run edition on the website so hopefully we don't get screwed over.


We can learn as much, if not more, from bad games as we can from good ones.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.

Super Metroid, on 25 Jun 2013 - 3:56 PM, said:Waltzed into walmart at 11:30 this morning, waltzed right out with a limited edition.

Yup, I've seen it there too. I also went to Target and Toys R Us on the way to pick up my LE from Gamestop and all 3 retailers had several LEs in stock.

Newegg must've struck a deal with bamco to sell a meat and potatoes version for a couple bucks less, what a trick.

Do we know if ANY other retailer is selling this lame secret gimped version? So strange. I hope Newegg is getting a flood of returns on this and it sends a message.

What makes you think it's a standard edition? I got mine from newegg today. It comes with a box and I guess music cd and art book in it (I've left home so can't open). Is it for sure a LE? I don't remember seeing the LE word on cover and your comments made me nervous. Please let's know and if its not LE I will try buy one during my trip. ----------- UPDATE ---------- Nevermind. My newegg copy is still on the way and the one I received was from Amazon. Somehow I forgot it and double booked. Now I'm glad I did so I can just refuse newegg's shipment.

You do.  I'm gonna try to contest it over the phone tomorrow.  If they give me an attitude I'll try that Google protection thing that I opted into when I placed the order.

The support tech I spoke with at Newegg was of no help, kept giving me canned responses and basically said "too bad"

 

This is the last straw with Newegg.  Every CE they've sent has been damaged because of their poor packaging.  They messed up with several promotional codes they've sent out.  They even tried to tell me that the Last Story I pre-ordered didn't have the bonuses...only to hear from the publisher that all copies would have it.

 

They are beyond useless and worthless.  Going to return what I have and see if I can get it from another store.  Stupid, stupid move on my part to ever trust Newegg to not totally Fuck up.

Newegg customer service basically shrugged their shoulders when I called. "We only have this listed, says nothing about being limited." On phone with Namco. I'm betting they are of no help either.

The anonymous employee in the GS trade thread warned people last weekend that when his store got an extra copy after their initial shipment that it was a vanilla copy.

So once these are sold out, they will be replaced by vanilla copies.

I just picked up my package from UPS today, and I noticed it was a thin bubble envelope. I figured it was a STANDARD copy, and now I'm going to bitch at Newegg customer service.


 

 

 

EDIT: Alright, here's what you guys need to do in order for you to NOT have to pay for return shipping:

 

Make sure you specify that it is NOT up to the customer to contact Namco-Bandai and that the situation has to be dealt between Newegg and Namco-Bandai.

 

If the customer service rep still doesn't budge, make sure you ask for a manager and hammer that into their skull. Luckily, I didn't have to ask for a manager, but I had to repeat that statement to the rep multiple times before he decided to send me a UPS shipping label.

Does the vanilla edition scan as the same as the limited edition at Gamestop? Would I be able to return the newegg copy with no problems? I'd like to avoid groveling to newegg's customer service.

I was lucky enough to get a receptive CSR when I called Newegg today.  He emailed me a free UPS shipping label with no fuss at all.  Meanwhile I picked up a real copy of the game at GameStop during my lunch break, minus a $5 rewards coupon.  So I suppose this ended well for me.  :bouncy:

 

Good luck to everyone else!  Make sure to check whether you opted in to Google's free protection thing back when you first ordered.  If Newegg doesn't cooperate you could try taking it to Google.  That guarantee has to be good for something.

What's the vanilla edition's SKU? I can compare it with my LE one.

I chatted with their support and actually did not have an issue, they obliged and will send me a prepaid label.  Just make sure you state the situation clearly so they understand. Not sure what the issue was, disappointing at first since I had to go out and check a couple of stores but Walmart had 3 copies so all is good. I think I'll keep one sealed and just get a digital to play, game seems unique and I'm glad they brought it over.


The barcode # on the back of both the standard and LE are the same. So I suppose that you can return the Newegg and get a LE instead at a retail store...

Different UPC numbers.

 

EDIT: Scratch that, this time they decided to make the UPC numbers the same. However, it is entirely possible that the standard editions that Newegg got were actually limited editions without the limited edition outer packaging.

How can that be as Namco "denied" the issue themselves (see previous post regarding Namco response)

Who knows what the actual situation is, but what you can do is actually return the standard copy to GameStop using your receipt because the standard and limited edition copies share the same UPC numbers.

Bottom line is, we took the risk to save $6. We knew this could happen and it did. Newegg delivered EXACTLY what they advertised. Bashing them because we assumed it would be the special edition is idiotic. Yes i got the standard edition as well, yes i wanted the special edition. Am i happy, no...but its not their fault.

Join the club man. I was expecting my Newegg copy to arrived in a bubble mailer and in fucked up condition, but they did one better and sent out the regular game.
