Yeah I thought they were doing a CE? Maybe I'm wrong.

To my knowledge there hasn't been an announcement of one. If anything I would expect some sort of art book for preordering the game similar to Xenoblade. Only The Last Story got a CE out of the trio of Wii JRPGs so far.

Glad that gamestop isn't getting exclusive rights to this game, as with Xenoblade Chronicles.

Xseed had nothing to do with Xenoblade.

All those Ys premium editions on PSP, I'd be shocked if Xseed doesn't do a CE for it.

I never mentioned Xseed in my post. I just said that it would probably get an art book similar to what was done with Xenoblade. Yes I know that Xseed is/did localization for Pandora and Last Story but that doesn't mean it guarantees that Pandora will get a CE just because Last Story got one.

For all we know maybe throwing in the extras for Last Story didn't move many more units in the US. It seems a lot more cost effective to JUST do an art book instead of "premium casing" and a soundtrack as well as an art book. Just my 2 cents though. It does seem a bit odd that they haven't announced anything regarding a CE despite them already putting pricing out on GameStop and Amazon. Wouldn't be surprised if it stayed that way and they just opt for the SE.

I'm sure Xseed will do a CE--probably a first print, no extra $ type thing just like TLS.

Fuckin' hell! March has so many titles coming out!

Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk
Tomb Raider
God of War: Ascension
Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory
Gears of War: Judgment
Bishock Infinite
Pandora's Tower

...all games I want... I'm gonna have to make some hard choices here :|

Which ones you think are gonna drop faster in price? I feel like God of War, Bioshock and Gears of War will all drop pretty quickly... and I wanna grab the CEs of the JRPGs.

Yeah the bigger name games like Tomb Raider, GoW, etc will likely drop faster in price than the JRPGs. You also won't have to worry about small print runs or anything like that for the bigger name games which is something else to consider.

oh ya, Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk. I had forgot about that. I dont really see it on NISA's site. Maybe im blind and tired. Is it not listed yet?

Also i seem to recall hearing some grumblings about the translation being shoddy or missing stuff. Anyone know anything about that? I'll have to search up on it i guess. But ya.. as to August's question Gears of war, GOW, and Tomb Raider will drop really fast. Bioshock Infinites up in the air too.. ive heard some serious grumblings about that game being kinda shit

Hmm... my friends generally buy Gears day 1 and play campaign... not sure if that's the case this time around... but definitely effects my decision. I reaaaally wanna play the new Tomb Raider...

Fuuuuuuck! Well... I can cross off God of War and Bishock Infinite, I'll wait on them. I don't wanna buy more than 4 new games that month... so I'll need to let go of one more. I guess it'll either be Gears or Tomb Raider...

I'm already limiting myself to just Aliens: Colonial Marines in February too. Forcing myself to wait on MGSR: Revengeance and Dead Space 3. God. I guess it's a blessing I don't have 3DS or Wii-U yet or I'd be going nuts ><

Regarding Atelier Ayesha, I'm pretty sure they announced the release in March, but pre-orders aren't up yet.

Koei Tecmo is publishing it, so it probably won't be on NISA's store. Neptunia Victory is also coming in March and it is already up for preorder

Only issue is this time the game will be dub only.

Great list of upcoming games on March.
If I were you, I'll wait for the God of War: Ascension, Gears of War, Tomb Raider and Bioshock Infinite (unless you're getting the collector's edition).

As for Atelier, I'm pre ordering it once if I hear any news about some premium edition. Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory will have a steady price for a long time and Pandora's tower will be pretty steady for around $30-40, but who knows, it may end up to be "rare" like Xenoblade Chroniciles. Good news is that it's not a GameStop exclusive.

I've decided to wait on God of War and Bioshock. I think I'm going to get either Tomb Raider or Gears on release... not sure which one.

Tomb Raider was a lot of fun when I played it during PAX Prime:bouncy:

Hmm, I swear I saw a pre-order for it on Newegg awhile ago for 3/26, but it looks like it was pulled. I remember reading that it would be released in March elsewhere, but perhaps it was delayed or it was just a guess.

Man, all of these games coming out in March (of which I'll be getting a fair amount of them), and then there's also Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate which will take the most time out of any of them from me since I love that series so much, I'll probably end up getting this at launch though either way.
