Gamestop may be sold out on the LE preorder, but they have more LEs than they preordered for. If you preorder it now, you might still be able to get it. At least that's what an employee said to me today. Look carefully at this, for this is the only series I will ever preorder for.

 

Best Buy doesn't have the LE, right?

Is this thing actually limited, or will it be back in stock everywhere at 50% off by Christmas? What exactly is "limited" about this, just the book? Is there no difference in the game case or anything?

Actually, there is no game case. The artbook has a place where you put the game.

I think I read in another thread that it doesn't even have a case. Just a slip in the artbook that holds the disc.

It is just like the HITMAN HD collection packaging. Artbook with a little disc holder connected to it, which slides into a sleeve of sorts. I can confirm there are also basic non artbook regular plastic PS3 cases for sale (at least in North America).

FYI it's also still available for preorder at most Best Buys. I was able to preorder mine just the other day there.

Thanks for this.  I don't like the Hitman HD packaging and will look for the normal case version.

Are you serious? You go out of your way to order a "limited edition," and the game packaging is worse than the normal edition? That's just stupid...

Is the artbook seriously the game case? I'd rather have a standard game case instead of a combo case that is a mini artbook. I might have to cancel my pre-order and wait for the normal version to drop in price.

From what I've seen, it's like a digibook that some blu-ray movies come in. The book is filled with whatever and at the back is a normal slot that the disc goes in. The whole thing then slides into a slip cover.

I work at Best Buy and saw them in the back and can confirm with the way it was packaged that this is true, was very disappointed with this when I got my collectors edition of Arkham City :(

 

But damn it, I want that art book. Will buy a empty case in the future like I did with Arkham City. Or spam mail Square Enix demanding a game case :P

wow this bites i guess im only going to get one and not worry on trying to trade for a read artbook as it is the case.  this is really poor on squares end.  they KNOW they have a huge kingdom hearts fan base and they go and cheap out.  shame on them!!!!

Found a video on YouTube of the UK LE. I assume this is also the same as the US LE.

cant deny the artbook is pretty, but still wouldn't have bought it like that.

I don't know why Square-Enix keeps doing this cheap stuff.  Looks like the FFX/X2 HD LE is going to have an art book that is also a game case too.  Just make a separate art book and a real game case.

Is anyone else sick of this "omg its so limited BUY IT NOW" nonsense? 99.999999% of the games labeled 'limited edition' are not in fact hard to find or rare. Limited just means they made a specific amount. Square-Enix could easily make 500,000 copies of this and still call it an LE because, well they made a specific limited amount.

I bought Shin Megami Tensei IV day one, full price, $50. That's extremely rare for me, I'd rather wait for a sale, but it was a 'limited edition' and had a $30 Nintendo shop credit off, so I bit. Plus gamestops around me only received preorder copies, none were on sale to the public. One month later they restocked the 'limited edition' and I still copies laying around at all stores.

I want this game, I do. But I'm not naive enough to think its rare.

No it doesn't. Rather be a "whiner" than be in denial.

Man I'm tempted to pre-order but I got a feeling it will be $20 sometime during the holidays. Plus I got a gang of RPGs in my backlog that I'm going through and I want GTA V.

I actually don't mind/kind of enjoy the packaging. Not sure why everyone's turned off by it. Sure i'd still probably prefer to have the art book and game case separate but I enjoy the slip case. I'll be picking this up along with Puppeteer.

Cancelled mine last week.  I don't care about art books so I'll wait for this to drop below $20 or show up on PS+.

Once something sells out and is gone for good and is never sold for MSRP again, it's too late to say, "Oh ok, so I guess this really WAS limited."
