A large percent of it is taxed so they're not getting anywhere near 500k to begin with.

Still, you could make a game from scratch for 500K. Seems like they are asking for more than needed.

500k does sound like way more than it should need for the "physical deluxe" version. They said it was for 7,000 copies of the physical version to be produced.

Has anyone even tried to do the math? 500k for 7,000 copies? So $71~ each?

I wish they would just do a basic UMD release. I honestly do not want to put down $60 for this. None of the extras are that enticing to me. Have they even said what the download will cost if it goes dl only?

I figured I would share this here if anyone wants disgaea 4 they can get it for 26 dollars. The catch is you have to do it today, it is the European version so you can't use American dlc and you have to import it. Anyway Zavvi has it on sale for 15 pounds plus 1 pound shipping to the U.S. I ordered one myself, but for those of you with doubts I have used zavvi before when I imported dodonpachi for the xbox. It came about 2 weeks after I ordered it. Here is the link - http://www.zavvi.com...n/10432386.html

I found a sealed Atelier Rorona with the art book at GameStop for $29.99 today, so if your local GS has any left, it should be the same price.

Not sure where to put this.

I preordered Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2 Limited Edition: Gamindustri S on January 12. About a week later I got an email saying the payment couldn't go through because I switched debit cards and didn't change my payment method. Misfortunes were had and I couldn't buy the game anymore so I just ignored the email since they said it would be canceled in a week if I didn't fix it. However, last night I got an email telling me my order went through and the game is being shipped. I double checked and this is the limited edition version for $64.99 and it is not available on the NIS website anymore. Also, it was put on my credit card I have through Bank of America, which is where I got my debit card from.

I'm not complaining cause I wanted the game and do have the funds now but I'm totally in the dark of how this happened. The game is sold out and selling for a lot on amazon.

I had to share somewhere and what few friends I have that game all play CoD and no RPGs so, I don't know.

NISA did have a waiting list on hand for people that wanted mk2 but could not get in before the early pre-order cut off. My thoughts are that they went extremely conservative with the pre-orders in fear that they might go over the target amount and now are distributing the many extra copies to people on the list or with outstanding orders. It's good to see that those that NISA is taking care of those that missed out initially.

Not everyone that was on the waiting list got to order after the LEs were sold out.

I don't get what you mean. The waiting list was created because the LEs were sold out on their page and I don't believe the people on the list ordered. If a copy was available and their turn was up, they got contacted by NISA for a sale. No ordering took place on their part since the game was never officially relisted by NISA.

The purpose of the waiting list was so if somebody cancelled their order, NIS would allow the next in line on the waiting list to purchase that copy. There shouldn't be any outstanding orders because that would imply they were taking orders after the game sold out.

Frosty the Batman has an outstanding order as he worded his post to make is seem as his order was never cancelled and weeks later it was processed. Also, several people online have been claiming to have had luck with previously cancelled orders and getting a sale through the waiting list. Can't say how but it appears that NISA had more copies available than the pre-order amount. Perhaps a shipment solely reserved to be used for customer exchanges and are now distributing that out?

Either way, I do not care as I am extremely glad that those that wanted this particular set of the game are actually getting copies while keeping the scalpers out of the way.

They probably has X number set aside for damaged or defective copies. I remember a few people complained theirs were damaged.

I'm more interested in how it went from my debit card to my credit card. I was told my order was canceled. Also, very happy and not a scalper.

Right after the item sold out on the website, and orders started being fulfilled/shipped, those that missed out got an email saying you could call them and be put on a waiting list.

What I was saying before, was that not everyone who was put on the waiting list, got the game in the end, obviously. It just has to do if they have any available left over.

I'm wondering if the Atelier Meruru limited edition is going to be sold out soon.

I already see people listing 10+ of them on Ebay.

Edit: Is Ebay even suppose to let preorder items be listed by sellers?

I see it all the time... I don't believe it's actively monitored.

I heard they aren't suppose to list something they don't have on hand, but if that's the case, they don't seem to enforce it.

From eBay learning center:

If you want to sell presale items, be sure to meet all of the following criteria:

  • Guarantee that the item will be available for shipping within 30 days from the purchase date. Be sure to clearly state this information in your listing.
  • Clearly indicate in the listing that the item is a presale item.
  • The handling time specified in your listing should reflect the time from the end of the listing until the item is shipped to the buyer—not the time the item is in your possession. Be sure to specify the correct handling time in your listing.
  • In the listing form, you need to use the default font size of 3 so people can easily see these sale terms.
If you don't meet all of those criteria your item could potentially be removed.

thanks for pointing this out. amazon shows a release date of june 30, 2013. ok so i just talked to cs- at first they said it was for a different item because the publisher before was ignition and now its atlus.. i had to point out that the game is identical along with amazon's preorder price guarantee.. then they didn't budge because the price before was too great (29.99 to 49.99) but i had them check my initial order details and they could see i got it for 28.49 (gold box discount). so then he finally agreed and had me place a new order for 49.99 after which he manually adjusted the total to 28.49. hope you saved your amazon order confirmation emails because if you try and look it up under your account on amazon it won't be there.

You lucked out man. I made all the points you did, but my CSR would not budge because his "lead" wouldn't let him... :/

keep trying man. i would keep trying if i was u until i got someone that budges because you are entitled to the preorder price you placed. keep stressing the preorder price guarantee and hopefully u get someone who understands the situation.

It was my impression that NISA did preorders based on number ordered, i.e. people preorder X copies they prepare X copies, but I'm sure they also have a limit in place to ensure they can fulfill all the orders so have maximum of Y copies.
