I'm pretty sure many people already went ahead and made preorders already, but will start a thread anyhow.

 

http://www.futuresho...rder-games.aspx

 

I think all games under $59.99 are on sale, not just the ones listed here.

 

What I've preordered so far...

 

Time and Eternity (PS3)

Dragon's Crown (PS3)

Tales of Xillia (PS3), cancelling amazon.ca $49.99 preorder

Beyond Two Souls SE (PS3)

Bravely Default Flying Fairy (3DS)

Shin Megami Tensei IV (3DS)

Pokemon X (3DS)

Pokemon Y (3DS)

MGS Legacy Collection (PS3)

Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem (Wii U)

Final Fantasy X X2 HD Remaster (PS3)

GTA V (PS3)

 

Muramasa LE and Project Zone X are sold out :-(

I know this has been a nice deal for people in the past and I've always missed out on it! So thanks for the heads-up. This is what I managed to pre-order:

 

The Last of Us (PS3)

Dragon's Crown (PS3)

Final Fantasy X & X-2 HD (PS3)

Tales of Xillia (PS3)

 

Bravely Default Flying Fairy (3DS)

Mario & Luigi Dream Team (3DS)

Shin Megami Tensei IV (3DS)

 

Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem (WU)

 

I also have the Muramasa LE preordered from Amazon, but I would have gladly downgraded to the standard one for this price break.

 

Hmm... I also just noticed that Pikmin 3, Dark Souls 2, and Skyrim: Legendary Edition are also available as part of this deal... [EDIT: Scrap that, Skyrim is PC version only.]

Glad to see they're continuing to do the yearly E3 deal. Great for people who are certain of buying 3+ games day one and saving $20 off each of them. Hadn't jumped on it before. I put in an order this morning solely for three copies of GTAV (one for me, two for friends), but reading into the fine print left me disheartened. Someone at RFD noticed that GTAV isn't included. My order went thru correctly at what seems like a sales price, but I'm just waiting for them to correct / cancel it. Kinda bittersweet.

I got GTA:V, Last Of Us, COD:Ghost 39.99$ each with free shipping, good deal. Some games are not listed on the site page but if you add it to your shopping cart at checkout you will see the discount as been applied. You can otherwise get 1 59.99$ title for 10$ off.

Couple notes:

 

1) tales of xillia Collector's Edition isn't part of the deal

 

2) they're "sold out" of Project X Zone preorders (whatever that means)

 

3) they're "sold out" of Kingdom Hearts 1.5 "limited edition" (just an extra artbook but still)

Cool deal, there are only 3 console games I want and all 3 were in the deal so I'm saving the full $60.

 

Last of Us (They better ship it Thursday!!!)

Grand Theft Auto 5

Beyond Two Souls

 

When I was first checking out they had high shipping prices for every game, so I hit Edit next to the shipping and it only gave "Free" as an option for one of the games. When I chose free on the one game, all 3 games switched to free. Pretty stupid but it worked out in the end.

Grabbed 9 preorders so far.

 

Last of Us

Xillia ( not paying 60$ extra for bigger artbook/figure sealed the deal on cancelling CE)

SMT VS Fire Emblem 

Bravely Default 

Game and Wario

Mario+Luigi

Time and Eternity

SMT 4

Pokemon Y

 

Tempted to go another round. Especially if they rustle up more stock of Kingdom Hearts w artbook and Project X zone.

 

Technically will cost me next to nothing since I have a PRP giftcard coming from my regular 3ds and 75$ in rewards giftcards from Esso rewards.


Then went and preordered Project X zone Kingdom hearts and Smash Bros from futureshop .

 

 

Ebs about to get alot of cancellations.


And then with extra digging....

 

FFX/X2 remastered

The Guided Fate Paradox

and

Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness

But considering the screwjob that is Tales of XilliaCE the limited edition/normal edition is a better deal at 40$ unless you wanna pay 60$ for a artbook+figure.

May end up moving some of my pre orders from EB to here, plus get a few for my partner :P

Not sure about doing Lightning Returns since that one is pretty much guaranteed to get at least some pre order bonuses....

Yep, FFXIII & Dark Souls 2 should get nice LE bundles.

 

I didn't notice that Wind Waker was on the site yet though, so I may go back for another round of Pikmin 3, Wind Waker, and something else. Hmm.

It's easy to get lost in the E3 hype.  I'm really interested in many of these titles but I think we'll see the same lightning fast price drops that we have seen in the past.  So I'm going to wait, check out reviews as they come out, and buy the good ones a month or more after release. 

Besides, it's nearly summer and I'll spend most of my off time fishing on my boat anyways :p

This is great, thanks for posting.

I assume each game will ship separately? As in, I won't be waiting for GTA to release to receive The Last of Us, etc?

Also, are you just charged for each game as is ships? I've got an order with 3 games for $120, so when the first ships will I be billed for it and then have a total of $80 on that order until the next ships and I'm billed another $40? I'm just curious because it would be great to be able to just add gift cards as I get them from trade ins and such throughout the summer.

Yes, they ship in bundles according to what comes out, so you might get 2-3 games around August 10th for example, Last of Us next week, and GTAV and FF later in the year, etc.

 

You're charged for each game/bundle as they ship.

all the ps4 and xbox one games were sold out at 8am this morning - is this some kind of joke this year?

 

update:

now they are all back in stock which makes sense but when you add 3 games to your cart the discount is not reflected at checkout, come on futureshop get your act together  :headache:

Their checkout system is also a bit screwy. I had to choose ground shipping for everything to get the free shipping, but two of the options for ground were priced at $3.99. If you're placing an order, make sure shipping is free in the checkout, and if it's not, keep messing with the options until it is.

That's generally true, but first-party Nintendo games are notoriously slow to receive discounts.  These deals are especially good for those titles.

 

I just did a count and realized that I pre-ordered 12 Wii U games and 6 3DS games. :shock:

 

Couldn't find Zelda 3DS, sadly.

 

Also!  Was excited to find a listing for X:

 

www.futureshop.ca/en-CA/product/wii-u-x-nintendo-wii-u/10204320.aspx

 

This is the forthcoming Wii U RPG from Monolith Soft, makers of Xenoblade Chronicles.  It looks HYPE.

Perfect, thanks for the info.

 

I'm assuming that once one item in your order ships, you're pretty much locked in for the others as well, regardless of when they ship? I created an order of PS3 games that included TLOU and some stuff coming out later and it looks like my card has already been charged $45 (hopefully this means I will receive it Friday) and I can't find the "cancel order" option. I think because of that it may be smartest to just make orders in groups of 3, rather than slap 12 games on a single order, unless you know for sure that you won't wind up getting them elsewhere, though I guess returns are easy enough too.

Someone just mentioned X, I know nothing about it but if it's an rpg I think I should order it ._.

The only game I pre-ordered with this deal, was Mario & Luigi: Dream Team. Does SMTIV come in the limited edition bundle? I have my pre-order on Amazon.ca due to the costume. I would pre-order Xillia or Dragon's Crown, but I want that artbook that comes with pre-order for DC, and I have my Collector's Edition of Xillia paid off at EBGames.

The only way to be sure is to have a preorder at Ebgames and Futureshop. Return the Futureshop copy or cancel the order if it doesn't come with the art book. Or another morally gray option is to return the Ebgames copy without the art book and keep the discounted Futureshop copy. Either way better decide soon cause the preorder sale ends in a couple of days.

 

I wouldn't worry about SMT4. It seems pretty cut and dry that all first prints get the extras regardless of where they are purchased hence the $49.99 price tag.

Yeah, but the issue I have is that this promo claims Limited/Collector Editions don't qualify. Yet, SMTIV gets the discount either way. I guess I'll pre-order SMTIV with Mario & Luigi and something else instead. I'll just keep my DC pre-order at EB.
