They probably just made so little for each system because it's such a shitty Limited Edition therefore it looks like it has high demand and it's selling out fast when it's actually not. I'm fairly certain people aren't flooding the listing for a purse sized satchel and a flimsy poster. They could have taken this the normal LE route and made tons more sales, especially from people like me who tend to buy all their LE's (except this one obviously).

I personally think it's a neat package and the fact that they apparently only made a small amount makes it that much cooler IMHO.  Frankly, I was starting to get tired of the standard NIS LEs that they have been pumping out for literally every game in the past few years.

When I preordered it it said I would be unable to cancel it after I placed the order so I doubt it will come back up, I hope it does a buddy of mine wants one!

Guess I'll have to hope that some people have credit card info that don't go through around the time then...

the page still shows 25% stock but then at the bottom it's out of stock. is that normal? I'm surprised all three systems are gone.

There was never a boxed CE version, they literally were separate interchangeable extras for all 3 platforms taking orders from the same pool of however many backpacks/artbooks/posters they ordered.

I'm sure the people who are liking it are liking it because they either are fans of NIS/franchise, like cheaply made "backpacks/purses" or because it appears it was limited. It is safe to say it was "limited" because I doubt there was a lot of demand for this game. And as others mentioned it's not an exclusive collector's edition---you're getting the standard game, regardless of platform, and a few extra things thrown in what I'm assuming will be a standard shipping box.

 

It's like what the WBShop did with "The Dark Knight Rises" store exclusive edition. They threw the standard blu-ray in a plain brown shipping box with three cheaply made Chinese toys of the main characters. 

 

So basically---you're buying the game and some swag under the guise that it's a CE.

At least with THBS you cant buy the swag separate and the game later on down the road when it goes on sale.

 

Edit: Not trying to poke fun at anyone who preordered this (Kind of wish I knew from the get go that this was how it was set up as I would have put an order in---even cheaply made items (think ZE:VLR watch) are neat for collector's).

That's kinda nuts. I wonder if there is something weird going on there behind the scenes due to this CE looking like it's the same for all versions with the game tossed in next to it instead of packed inside? Maybe they have some challenges there related to the store software counting the number available?

If they did genuinely sell out that fast.. then that is pretty amazing. Low production run or a huge demand coming from some mysterious place. Very odd indeed.


Not odd at all. Looks like the ce stuff will ship outside the box and they probablly made the same amount of stuff they would if it were just on one system and are splitting it among the 3 systems pre orders till they run out instead of making thousands of them for 3 systems.

It isnt very hard to figure it out.

Best Buy messed up the listing for it.  They've fixed it on the page so that listing now says it's the standard edition.  An employee on the forums said that they ARE planning on carrying the premium edition and are working on getting the preorder page up for it.

 

So, ya, you might have to cancel your preorder for that and preorder again (at the correct $79.99 price) once they fix the listings.  But it might be worthwhile to talk to customer service, tell them that the listing was wrong when you preordered, and see if they give you the premium edition for the $49.99 price you preordered for.

The Best Buy product page for Persona Q is also showing a picture of the Premium edition. Could confuse people into thinking that they are buying the premium edition, based on the picture provided. Best Buy is really screwing up the listing of this game.

That's actually crazy.  They had it listed as the premium edition with the premium edition picture (but at the standard edition price).  Then, I'm pretty sure they fixed it and changed the listing to standard with the standard edition picture.  Now the picture is the premium edition picture again?  Go Best Buy!

That's interesting.  The SKU from the site for the standard edition (or what appears to be the standard edition but has the photo up for the premium edition) is 7377002.  So maybe you did get lucky.

 

Still probably best to talk to customer service, though.  Things have been a mess there lately with preorder screw-ups, website listing errors, issues like them not knowing if they were getting the special edition of Final Fantasy X/X-2 until they actually opened the shipment boxes, and not stocking certain new releases at all (like Atelier Rorona Plus, which they actually took preorders for briefly and then decided not to carry and cancelled all the preorders).  You'd think a company charging $120 gamers club unlocked memberships and trying to pimp themselves as a gaming store would at least make some sort of effort to not totally suck at it. *shrug*

Witcher 3 CE for Xbox One is back in stock at Amazon, just in case anyone wants to lock in a pre-order and decide later whether or not they want to buy it. I'll be cancelling my BB order in favor of amazon. I much prefer to deal with them.

That's exactly how I feel, the Collector's statue looks better to me.  I have both pre-ordered on Amazon, but I've been keeping my eye on bby to utilize my @Gamer membership.  I'm sure the Premium will pop up soon.

Here's hoping they screw up on the Witcher 3 at some point.



First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"
