Well, I thought about ordering the game. Then with this popping up might as well.

EDIT: cancelled mine. I'm sure it's great but I'm gonna try the demo. Just watched an unboxing and while it's nice I don't really care about the extras plus I'm not going to put that stuff on display. I will just get the regular later if I like it.

Nice, I didn't think it would actually be in stock. I pre-ordered the regular one which has shipped already...

And so the great "It's out of stock everywhere!" CE process begins the next phase of its lifecycle...  where all of a sudden on release day, there are plenty of them available.  

 

EDIT: Three pages worth of sellers on Amazon trying to hock this for $100 or so.  Ha ha!  Burn, flippers, burn.

Long time reader, but had to make my very first post to say thanks! I had a $25 Amazon GC that I was waiting for the right time to use, and this was it. Missed the pre-orders on this game, as I wasn't really aware of what it was until the CE was long sold out.

 

Thanks again!

Don't be so certain...

 

In the last 30 minutes, this has gone from being "in stock" at Amazon to "requires 1-2 extra days to process".  I'd bet my left toe that in the next short while (~15 min?) it will go into "temporarily out of stock"...then to out of stock.  It happens every time (albeit at a different rate depending on the overall stock they had). 

 

Amazon usually will have items go back in stock for a short while on the day of release as preorders are cancelled (customer request, credit card declined, etc.)...but usually only in limited quantity.  At least in my region, this item is OOS at all retail locations with no intention to restock.  Of course, it may be restocked, but I have my doubts (portable niche title on a Nintendo console vs. COD #12345).

Thanks OP, decided to pick this up as I loved the demo and I had Amazon credit to burn.

Quoting myself for timestamp - only 15 left in stock.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

So is the sarcasm lol.

They say back ordered, but there very well be no more inventory coming in.
I went to buy another from them and apparently they have an item limit where they aren't allowing for multiple purchases/orders of them lol (kind of glad about that). Saves me $50 I would have spent on an impulse.

Grabbed one. For $10 more it should retain more of it's resale value if I decide to resell after I beat the game. Although the game is like 60 hours, so who knows when that'll be.

OOS now (at least temporarily).

 

Methinks this is still going to be fairly limited, so hold onto your copies (if you have them)!

i grabbed an extra one.   had an add on item i needed to buy so if they cancel it, i won't be too put out.   Hopefully best buy doesn't f up shipping.

good call

Went ahead and ordered even though I only sort of want this game. It will probably ship, but if it doesn't, I don't think I'll be upset since Amazon doesn't charge until it ships.

Well they are banking on the fact that they may be getting more in stock, which is not always the case.

I went ahead and pulled trigger on "Temporarily OOS." If it shows up again in large quantities at other retailers I'll bail. It's lead IP in a new franchise and has huge buzz from Japan and great Western reviews. It'll command a pretty penny in a few months (a la P4G Solid Gold) if its genuinely scarce.

don't worry, temporarily oos usually means their warehouse is out. they will be more shipments incoming. but the conditions it will come in will probably be damaged, due to them shipping it in cheap mail bubbler envelopes.

wonder how big of a lost amazon is going to take  on them when you complain about it being damage they go 

 

We will send you a replacment and you keep the  old one.    i mean that is a  major hit  at 50 a pop   say x  100  that is a 5,000 buck hit
