So basically $90 bucks for a lava lamp type thing and a steel book. Maybe the box if you can even count that.

I think even vanilla version at full retail price day one is better.

I'm a super hardcore MGS fan but I can't justify that much money. Id rather have the European edition with a quality play arts kai figure but import fees still ruin that as well. I'm not forking over about $200 bucks for a video game.

Really sad. I waited a long time for this and my worst fear was that $149.99 retail price. About $50 past what I would have purchased it at. That $50 dollar difference is a huge deal to me id rather add $10 bucks for a vanilla copy and be done or wait for the very first price drop.

This game and the other metal gear game as well as GTAV is all I look forward to for 2013. Not counting sleeper hits like 2009 demons souls coming out of no where.

Did anyone pre-order Ni No Kuni from Amazon UK? The price match guarantee lowered my base price to 58.33 pounds. With shipping (according to a currency converter) it's now almost exactly $100. So it's almost the same exact price. :)

Was it actually from amazon, not a seller; also, how long ago was it?


i tried yesterday after reading this thread. iirc it was from a seller, that may be the answer.

Yes - my preorder is currently £63.28 - which converts to about $101. Good importing times ahead!

That's $92 USD which is actually a decent savings from the US version which came to about $120 shipped. Not too bad if that includes shipping for being a import.

What's up with this game or Amazon? This is like the 3rd time it's come in stock/gone OoS on Amazon.

After shipping (£4.95) it's $100... there's no FSSS to the US unfortunately.:lol:

I'm wondering why these appear to be non-limited over in the UK but limited here.

I don't think EU is getting the Nino starter program as the US is getting. Still a good price if you missed the US pre-order.

This. I had included the shipping cost. So yeah, if they're charging $20 for shipping the US version then it's still a hell of a deal.

It's probably still limited but maybe it's less popular and/or people don't feel rushed into ordering right away (as they would in the US with that fake kickstarter).

Tomb Raider Collector's Edition Announced for NA:

$99.99

It was on their Facebook page. So far they only show the Tomb Raider website as the place to pre-order it. I hope that Gamestop and other places will offer it as well.

Looks like shit imo. What happened to the ridiculously hot Lara that was on the Game Informer cover quite awhile ago? Wish they would have stuck with that look. I would have bought it then even though I hate the statues in CEs.

As it is, a lousy statue and a tin with some extra junk I dont want for $40 more. No thanks. Will stick with paying less than half that for the standard.

I'm probably really just mad at all these cookie cutter CEs. It's beyond annoying at this point. At least go for quality if you're going to do the same thing as everyone else.

I'm just happy that they didn't price it ridiculous at $149.99 like some of these CEs have been lately. I'll gladly spend $100 on this one!

Has anybody imported into the US from the GAME UK website? If so, does stuff show up crushed or just fine? I am thinking about getting the Epic Mickey 2 CE and it is exclusive to GAME. Let me know if anyone has any scoop on GAME. Thanks.

I recently ordered the Tekken Tag 2 exclusive from Game UK. They shipped it in a vacuum sealed bubble mailer. This is very similar to what Deep Discount does if you've ever ordered from them. One corner of the box was dinged a little, but it wasn't too bad.

I'm still waiting for Gamestop to update with this on their site. I guess I could give them a call and see if they can upgrade my copy to the CE. Unless Eidos is selling these from their site, I may buy from them.
