Oh, for sure. I probably shouldn't of said pre-orders, as what I meant to say was more along the lines of first runs/prints of games, ie. Project X Zone, and Shin Megami Tensei IV.

 

SMT's first run upgrade is from the publisher, not the retailer, so anyone that Atlus ships the game to will have it.

How has FS been like with pre-order bonuses? are they up to par with EB?

Nobody is up to par with EB for pre-order bonuses. They always get the best ones. Other stores may get a bonus weapon while EB gets the weapon and an exclusive mission or something, that is a routine thing.

Oops, I have no idea about that.

I am quite sure the first run specials will be on FS. I just have extra preorders on amazon just in case FS does not.

Futureshop should have SMTIV/Project x Zone Limited Editions. As every single first print copy gets them no matter what.

Does anyone know if Best Buy ships my Last of Us today but Futureshop doesn't, can I open the Best Buy copy and then return the FS one to Best Buy later for refund? Will there be any difference, they'll only scan the UPC code right? They ship them from the same warehouse.

 

I'm asking cause I want to play the game ASAP and my Futureshop copy was cheaper, I didn't have time to cancel the BB order.

 

 

I think you should be fine, I don't remember seeing any "Future Shop exclusive" or "Best Buy exclusive" type stuff that would have different packaging or anything. Personally I'm planning on just going into FS tomorrow if my copy doesn't ship today and then returning my shipped copy with my store invoice just so I can play it over the weekend.

Do the games ship on launch day or the day before?

 

I seem to remember receiving them on launch day during the 2011 E3 deal...

I've only had one online pre-order from FS, but it arrived on release day (Metal Gear Rising). This time around, I've yet to receive an email saying The Last of Us has even shipped...

I didn't get a notice, they often send that email many hours after the website status changes to Shipped.

I remember when Tales of the Abyss 3D was releasing, I pre-ordered it off their site after trading in Uncharted 3 for that $50 gift card offer.

They shipped Tales of the Abyss early, and I got it on release day.

During the 2011 E3 deal only 1 of the 6 games I preorderd came release day, all the rest came later the same week or the next. The only thing that really bothered me about that is that some people who preordered the games closer to release got them on release day and they ran out of stock on some before all preorders were filled.

 

The games I have preordered this year from FS have arrived release day, or at the latest by Friday of that week. I received a shipping notice for Last of Us last night, and they delivery date they noted was for Friday. So hopefully it will arrive then, I'd hate to wait until Monday to get it  :(

Just a warning boys and girls. I just went through my orders and one of them had decided that Saints Row 4 was to be shipped via Air. Which I had certainly not asked for. So I cancelled and re-placed my order. Seems fine now. You may want to double check while the promo is still on, just sayin ;)

Got my email at 11:30 last night, but it's supposedly being delivered to me today so that's great.

 

EDIT: For those who care, I did receive TLOU in the mail today. Makes me even more excited about the pre-orders I made on this deal.

My friends swear by those headphones. I figured at 50$, they'll be my go-to solution for multiplayer. So yea I ordered a pair. And since it's FS, you (and I) can always return them if you hate them.

If you're not going to use it, please consider sending it my way (for good karma?). I could REALLY use this at my place.

Did anyone get the pre-order bonus with Last of Us? I thought it came with all pre-orders but then I saw that EB is claiming it's their exclusive.

 

Best Buy and FS are continuing this new policy of not leaving games in the mail box, so glad I was around to accept my delivery yesterday. They used to leave it in the box every time.

 

I have two of those headset codes if anybody needs it, one from FS and one from Best Buy.

Does FS accept open box items? Just wondering because I also bought the headset. Not sure how good it is

That's probably a delivery service thing. I got my Last Of Us in my mail box. But seems whenever the postal worker changes, they have their own new preferences/quirks.

Yea like Solid-Snake-Eyes said, they do accept open box items with some exceptions, say an open video game. But I've tested and returned multiple headphones. I've had a hell of a time trying to find a pair I like :/ At least thanks to FS/BB I can try them, then return if I don't like them. Same will go for this pair. Although at 50$, they only have to suit my needs for multiplayer for me to keep them.
