I know people want things in great condition, but having worked in retail, people like that are a pain in the ass to deal with. Anything minutia-related can be irritating. I'm sure they do it because the "customer is always right" mantra, but I can tell you it definitely grates on them most likely.

 

When a company doesn't ship a product correctly or sells damaged goods , the customer should complain.

Why would someone pay full price for a damaged CE?

 

If I decide resell any of the CEs that I bought , I make sure to use a sturdy box and lots of bubble wrap , packaging peanuts , etc. and not a  thin envelope that has a some bubble wrap glued inside.

 

Normally when I buy a CE from a company like NISA , they tend to package it very well unlike other distributors like Gamestop and Amazon.

In for one at Amazon. Since I moved to my apartment, I actually received my CEs in boxes.

That has nothing to do with what I'm talking about. I'm talking about customers who are nitpicky in general in-store(not online) and sorting through various things until they get the one they want. Once in a while it isn't a big deal, but it grates on you after a while. The most difficult customers to deal with having worked in retail are ones that nitpick. Even worse than rude and obnoxious ones, because you expect jerks once in a while.

 

Not saying it isn't a customer's right to at least ask, but I do feel bad having been on the other end telling employees that this CE isn't the one I want because it has a little ding on the corner and to go and swap it out for another. Having been there it makes me think twice is all.

I stopped by GS on the way home & preordered in store, cancelled my Amazon order when I got home.  That GS has good people working there, they put up a mint Zelda CE for me when most of their shipment came in damaged because I'm in there all the time.  The manager told me today when I placed the preorder that they got corporate to replace the damaged ones so no one got stuck with a dented box, but it was cool that he set me one aside.  I feel much better getting a CE there than from Amazon, especially after the shoddy treatment I got with SMTIV.  

And as for the whole $5 figure thing, is it really reasonable to go by what an item costs in Japan if you don't actually live there?  I'm guessing by the time I imported a $5 item it would cost me significantly more than that.  And I'm not planning a trip any time soon.  ;)

I wasn't looking for something limited.  I just wanted a high quality figure closer to pvc so I could display it instead of a cheaper plastic figure.  Even though the figures in this set is "rare", I could put that $60 towards a really good PVC figure for display which cost around $80.

 

Now that I can understand.

Namco confirmed at the NYCC panel that there would be a limited edition like ToX. It includes the light novel and soundtrack, just no figures or bigass box. Gonna be ordering this version since I don't care for the trading figures.

Thanks for the info. I pre-ordered the regular version now as well, if it does get listed with everything but the figures I'll go with that as well.

Solution: buy this to keep as a rare piece, and a high quality figure to display :whee: :whee: :whee: :whee:

I wonder why a fansite run by someone in the Philippines seems to be getting a lot of info for NA releases.

I've been told that there are a lot of people from that neck of the woods who are interested when Tales games get an English localization. Reasons seem to range from the language barrier to it being relatively cheap to import from the US to I-JUST-GOTTA-HAVE-EVERY-VERSION-OF-THIS-GAME-WALLET-BE-DAMNED syndrome.

Yeah I guess that's why there might be some reps that leak info to the guy and his site.  I guess NA/EU (and maybe AU) version sales look a lot better for the company than JPN/Asian. 

Would also somewhat explain why the actual Namco community manager retweeted this guy when info was tweeted.

I've cancelled orders before that were backordered and then received them anyway 6 months later.  I'd say better safe than sorry and hound them a bit.

For what it's worth, there was no mention of a steelbook at the NYCC panel. It probably is just Gamestop jumping the gun until proper images are released.

Amazon is taking some time to sell out of its 5000 allotment even with no buying limit. Odd -- the Namco store sold out in a day and had a limit of 2 per order.

 

Maybe Play Canada didn't get the memo about this being on Amazon or Amazon is taking more orders than CEs they are getting.

are you just assuming NB/Amazon/GS get an equal allotment of 5000 each?

Didn't want to, but ordered one from amazon for my nephew before they sell out.  He is a big Tales fan and his dad is an idiot who couldn't figure out he doesn't need to pay now, even though he knows Amazon doesn't charge until it ships.
