Got Project X Zone in the mail, but it wasn't the limited edition. Since I saved $10, I've decided I'm not going to make a federal case out of it.

i was dissapointed i got my project x zone in the mail and it was the standard edition. they really shouldnt put the picture of it saying limited edition on their bestbuy website if its going to be the standard. i was really looking forward to the poster :(

I agree. I think that there is supposed to be a CD in the limited edition too, if I'm not mistaken. There was a time when I might have bothered trying to return it, but I've got so many of these limited edition sets now that it's not worth the hassle of paying $10 extra for those things. I've got a huge backlog too, so I'm not even sure when I'll get around to playing the game. But, yes, they should have mentioned that it is the standard edition.

If you have the chance, you should run to Best Buy and see if you can exchange it for the LE. I wasn't even aware that a standard version of Project X Zone was out yet, as every store that has the game has a large stock of the limited edition.  It is worth a shot.

That's a good idea, but there isn't a Best Buy that's extremely close to me that's showing it in stock. I know the Target near me still has the LE, but it's still $39.99. Therefore, the Best Buy deal might not have been a sale. It might have been the new regular price for the standard edition. I'm kind of surprised that the game sold well enough to be printed again in a standard edition since it's more or less a hardcore gamer's type of game and not one that the mainstream gamers would be pick up.

Probably had a small first printing, demand was higher then supply, so non se edition was printed.

Need for Speed help. :)

 

I must say this is the first NFS game I'm stuck on. How do you guys win the medium and hard races? The AI is so fast, it's not even funny. Pretty much, 1 minor mistake from the player = race lost. Am I supposed to do something to upgrade my cars? Can't even win the 1st Most Wanted car. lol

First off find other cars and find one you feel comfortable with. Once you do that do the easy races first to unlock off-road tires & nitrous. Each race tells you what you get for coming in 1st, 2nd, or 3rd. After winning the race it will ask if you would like to apply the upgrades or you can do it anytime by pressing right on the d-pad and going to customize car.

 

Whichever car you unlock the upgrades for is the only one you can use it on. If you want to use upgrades on a different car you need to go win that race again.

 

I beat the game [beating all 10 cars] with minimal upgrades. It's really not that hard once you get the controls down and find a car you can control well.

 

But yes, you're right. Sometimes one mistake and you can lose the race but if it's still early on in the race you can easily catch back up [assuming it's not one of those ridiculously short races] and occasionally your opponent or opponents will crash as well.

Thanks for the tip; will try it out. Btw, which view you race in? There are only 2 and none of them is over the hood or in-car view which are my preferred views.

Anyone think it's worth it to email best buy to complain about not receiving the Project X Zone Limited Edition? I really wanted it :(

if you really want the limited edition, it is best to try to exchange it in store if you can find it.

Received both Ni No Kuni and NFS: Most Wanted.  Most Wanted isn't the LE version...that's OK.  Great price for a game I've been wanting to play, so I can't complain.

 

What I find really awesome is that even though both games arrived separately...each came in its own box with that big bubble bag stuffing.  That's what I love about buying online at Best Buy....they know how to package an item!  Not once have I ever received a game from them in the mail with any kind of damage or even the disc dislodged from the holder within the case. 

 

The extra care they take in packaging saves them furthers costs of a return, processing, etc.  And saves me the time and headache.

I raced in whatever the default camera view was. I never messed with them.
