I don't think it'll go lower, but I might as well ask...I can cancel a Xillia pre-order if a better one comes up here or elsewhere right?

Yup, very easily too. All done via website. I know I lucked out probably, but I even got to cancel in the packaging stage of shipment when I forgot about my Dead Island preorder there. Sure they charged me, but I got the refund in about 4 days with no hassle.

Waiting for the PS4 version of FFXIV, provided I haven't had my fill after the beta is over.

Didn't they patch this already? I thought I read it a while ago that just created account, when you had one already, it doesn't work.

So it seems Newegg is not selling the Commander in Chief Edition of Saints Row IV?

No early access or preorder items for XIV, seems pretty dumb to gimp yourself out of a week of early gameplay and 2 rare items for 5$ lol

I would love to cancel my Amazon pre-order of Xillia and get it it from the egg but Newegg completely blows when it comes to any pre-order bonus stuff and so I'm not sure if they would even get the Day 1 editions of Xillia. I'd rather pay 7 bucks more and make sure I get all the Day 1 extras from Amazon.

If you have to pay a monthly fee to access the game, is it really a deal?

The monthly fee doesnt really matter since someone planning on buying this will have to pay the monthly fee anyways, so why not try and find the lowest price on the disc of the game .... your argument makes no sense -_-

Even though FFXIV 2.0 is a lot better than 1.0, I still think it's very weak compared to FFXI. That being said I will still defend the monthly fees. SE constantly works on their MMOs and constantly adds tons of content for free, like perpetual DLC, so it's definitely worth it if you like the game.

 

FFXI gave me thousands of hours of unforgettable content, people and memories; as such even with the monthly fee I still think I got a great deal.

Can I add a different view? As in, why are we paying for nothing? I remember a time when FFXI got maybe 1 update a year, the rest being just patches and fixes every 3-4 months. It took them 5+ years to roll out one expansion, Wings of the Goddess, while the dev team was split focused on secret new MMO, which turned out to be FFXIV. That's pretty inexcusable to take that long to "finish" the expansion.

 

Welcome to disagree with me, but I feel monthly fees are old and outdated models. It makes you feel obligated to login and play that MMO, because you're paying for a service you should use it. I feel a full rebuild of AAR/2.0 could have been a chance to change the model, adopting Guild Wars or other FTP models. Giving people a choice to pay for what they want, because the game was a one time fee or free, feels much better and willing to do so as a consumer.

 

I understand why they are doing monthly fees, they almost have to after the failure of the game, but I don't agree with them. I can't imagine how Dragon Quest X on Wii/WiiU monthly fees would fly if it ever comes to NA.

Pre-ordered FF14 and Xillia. Not sure if I'll keep FF14 since the PS3 beta does not look as good as it does on PC and makes my eyes become blurry. Not sure on Xillia either. I was hoping for a better deal, and then there is still that LE that I kind of want. So undecided. xD

Thank you very much!  I am preordering it now...and then we'll worry about the extras that it should hopefully get since it's a first-print run.

Xillia is one of those games where every copy in the first print is the LE.

I hope so thought the same for Project X Zone and everyone is getting a standard edition from Newegg. I'd rather not trust Bamco right now and they are still on my bad list from companies (Capcom and Square-Enix are living in this abyss too....). I just don't trust them....will likely still keep order on Amazon than save a few dollars and end up with just a bluray case with the game.

I hate Bamco as much as the next guy, but you can't really blame the Newegg fiasco on them. It was Newegg's decision to do it, not Bamco.

I'm not so sure, not with Newegg.

 

Did anybody pre-order Dark Souls from Newegg? If so did you get the Day 1 Limited Edition? Considering it's the same publisher as Xillia, that would give us a better idea.

Well I quit in early 2004, but didn't they also get Chains of Promathia & Treasures of Aht Urhgan? Or do you mean, it took them 5 years to finish Wings of the Goddess?

 

If Square didn't have that stupid policy where your character got deleted after 3 months, I probably would've joined again and played.

 

I will agree that XIV was lackluster compared to XI, it didn't have anything that made XI great. I haven't played 2.0 yet, and really don't think I will. I completely agree with monthly fees becoming an outdated model. It used to work because there were just a handful MMO's. Now, there's too many to even name, and with many adopting a F2P model and charging only for premium content, I can't see how games like these can survive.

 

XIV got a whole lot of backlash, and from what I played, I was left with a sour taste. I only played for literally a week before quitting, it was just a god awful experience. So even now that I hear how much improved 2.0 is, I'm not sure... I would rather wait for a game like PSO2 to hit North America (which is F2P) and support them through in-game purchases.

What I expect and what I want are different. I'd buy it at $40. Mayyyybe even $45. But not more than that. I'm willing to wait for my price point; I'd just prefer it sooner than later :)

I guess it depends if the Limited Edition stuff matters to you or not, if not then yeah you should probably wait for $40-45.

Says the guy with Halo and Gears of War as two of his recently played games.  I guess he's just playing single player.

 They got rid of that ages ago. They save your character forever and you can take as big a break as you want whenever you want. I still come back to the game during the summer months cause there's usually not much to play and I still love the game,. I've have yet to find any game that gives me the same rush as when tanking/soloing tough NMs on Ninja.
