Why do people who have no interest in the CE stuff feel the need to come into these threads and tell everyone how "stupid" they are for buying them?  Y'know what?  If you don't want the stuff, YOU DON'T HAVE TO BUY IT!   :shock:
 
It's an amazing concept, I know.   :roll:


The internet has no need for your logic good sir.

I pre-ordered.

I loved the the collectors edition of Tales of Xillia. 

 

I just put a pre-order in at Amazon for this one! I love that the Tales series is seeing some more love after all these years.

There hasn't been word on a limited edition for the standard edition like ToX? I'd like the novel and soundtrack, but I've never liked chibi looking figures

Looks like junk for an extra $60.  Cancelled.

 

Enjoy the 4 figures, soundtrack, and artbook.

Since no one else did, I feel obliged to point out that there are 5 figures.  How could you ignore the cat?

The ToX CE was a little disappointing, just because the whole game felt like a bore to me, I couldn't get into it.
 
But ToS is one of my favorite tales so I'm in.


Agree about ToX. IMO the characters weren't very likable.

I pre-ordered off Amazon, and also got one off Namco's website. Might keep my Namco one, after debating since it seems it'll be limited and worthy of a colectors item

Went ahead and placed an order at Amazon. Not sure which order I am going to keep. Amazon charged tax but I'd definitely prefer to deal with them if something were to happen.

Yeah, no way I can justify the extra $60 for four figures, two incomplete soundtrack CDs, and a booklet.  That's nuts.  To give you an idea, those figures, part of a line called "Ichiban Kuji" here in Japan, generally have a market value of roughly $5 each.

 

Despite what they are worth, they are of VERY good quality! I own one of the Pokemon ones and it is amazing! Import pricing-wise, they go for around twice that much, though, since not everyone has easy access to Japanese pricing. There are sites like Amiami that have Japanese pricing on figures, sure, but they don't often carry these figures, and definitely not for $5 either!

Technically, they are 'worth' $5 IF you win them from your $5 ticket, but that's a game of chance :/

So I have a couple questions on this:

 

As a fan of the Gamecube Tales game, but as one who hasn't played any other tales game, am I missing anything? Are they all connected or do we have a Final Fantasy situation going on here where every game is completely separate?

 

I can't add the CE to my cart, gone already?

Oh yeah, definitely, they're nice quality; I have quite a collection going, too.  Though I prefer not to chance it with the actual lottery - they're one of the most common tickets, but I want to know what I'm getting before I fork over the cash.  Instead, I hit up the secondary market, and in most cases I pay even less than 500 yen for 'em - in fact, I just got the new Zelos and Rita figures for about 300 per.  I'm hoping even these will start showing up at my nearby hobby shops, since like I said, the CE pricing is pretty crazy for this one.

They're all different; There are direct sequels to Destiny and Symphonia (sort of), but otherwise, they're set in different worlds.

The games are generally separate, the two in this package are connected though and part of this version will be bridged the two.  Xillia also has a direct sequel that's coming here at some point.

 

I just ordered one from Amazon so shouldn't be.

namco burned me last time with ni no kuni, so Amazon it is.  Will try to place an order at gamestop if they start taking pre-orders so I can pick them up physically.  Cant trust Amazon to pack things up properly to avoid shipping damage as most of my shipments contain the item on one side and air cushions on the other side.  WTH Amazon???!?

They have been getting cheap on their packaging and only using the smallest size box possible instead of the next size up and putting in more protection.  At least they have decent quality boxes that stand up to abuse unlike say Gamestop.

Because we have an interest in a CE of a game that we enjoyed...but not the crap being offered for the price. You honestly expect the thread to be filled with "Thanks, in for one!"? Maybe if this came with a Colette pillow. /jk

 

So I'm gonna go ahead and assume I was dead on with my assumption that you'd prefer a wet towel.

To be fair, the to get the complete soundtracks it'd take 8 dics, and in Japan they cost almost 8000 yen alone total.

I don't like imcomplete OSTs myself, but one couldn't expect it all here...

Damn I love the Tales series. And Symphonia was my favorite. But this is just greed. I'll get the regular edition.

I loved the Xillia CE.  I think the Milla CE statue, CD, DLC and art booklet (I really can't see them justifying calling it a full art book) was worth the extra $40.  I've been fairly disappointed in the quality of bonus art books lately though and this book hits the trend... what used to be a highlight of the CE pack-in or pre-order bonus is now typically a few glossy postcards stapled together.

 

I know Namco is trying, but I can't justify +$60 for $5-10 minifigures, CD postcard-sized art booklet.  I could probably go +$30 or maybe +$40.  Sticking with the standard edition here.

 

Also, why is the general sentiment of this tread seem to be picking this up to flip and personal attacks on collectors?   :headache:

You have to tell Amazon about their packaging.  There's a feedback section specifically for that.

 

As for the CE, it's not my bag.

Doesn't mean they listen.  Every package I get I tell them to stop using those stupid cardboard wraps.
