I would have wondered if the GS employee had to say, Sorry, its on hold, for a CAG, yeah, power to the players, exactly, lol.

Seeing how big that Titanfall CE box is...it isn't gonna take Best Buy any time at all to clearance that thing. IF there is stock remaining. I give it 2-4 weeks and whatever's left will be discounted.

 

And I also would be wary ordering this online from them because they will almost certainly slap a label on it and send it. I've had numerous CE's smaller than that come that way from them.

Question regarding a best buy preorder: If I don't pick up my titan fall CE on release does that preorder stay in their system so say there is a clearance in 2-4 weeks can I still use what I put down towards it to pick one up?

I think they're like GameStop and only hold it for 48hours.

I just saw a thread for the Tales of Xillia Collectors Edition coming back in stock, but now it seems to be gone.

 

Anyway, I think I am going to jump on this, but can't decide now If I should just buy it from an Ebay seller or Namco, which would be from Digital River. My LR:CE came fine from DR, but should I risk it again?

 

Also, to anyone that has it already, is the box that it comes in hard cased, like to Tales of Symphonia CE or is it soft cardboard?

they eat your preorder $ after a month or more, after the game has been released.  you have to bring a receipt, or proof to get a refund of your preorder with a managers override.

Boo, I didnt realize the # on the Symphonia CE was on the top.  My store had 5 so I should've asked to get the lowest #.

I don't think this item will ever hit clearance. My guess is that stores only allocate actual orders and that they aren't buying extra stock to sell on the floor. With inventory costs already high as it is, what incentive do stores have to order more stock if they don't think they will sell it. Even GameStop is following this model where they aren't getting extra copies of expensive CEs.

 

I'll use CoD Prestige Edition as an example. Other stores like Target got plenty of stock. My Best Buy only got the actual amount preordered and they had no more to sell on the floor.

It's strange. My local BB has 4 copies of ACIV Limited Edition. Three for the PS3 and one for the PS4. Those are the only big box CEs there, however.

That's my point. It doesn't make sense for them to order more allocation if it isn't going to sell. The size of the Titanfall CE is huge. I don't even think they can put one display box out either. GameStop didn't even get extra allocation of Last of Us Post Pandemic because they took up so much room and were of course limited.

I'm not sure what the timeline is, but I preordered Dead Island Riptide to get the Steelbook. I did it at an out-of-state BB because I was on vacation and was worried that my local BB would be sold out. Anyway, I never bothered to pick up my preorder.

 

A few weeks later or so, the CE dropped to $45 online so I ordered it. A couple days after that, I was presently surprised to see the $20 preorder BB reward certificate.

 

Bottom line, their system seems to keep track of preorders by MyBB account, and it's possible to get the preorder bonus even if you don't pick up your copy at the store you preordered it at.

Double post!

 

My BB is the same way. I haven't seen a CE on the floor in a year or more. They only order enough to cover preorders (which means you need to pick it up on release day before an associate accidentally puts in on the floor).

Right, but online it very well may. They may not take up floor space if they aren't there, but unsold copies will take up warehouse space.

 

It may not come to that, but it just depends on how many cancelled pre-orders they get, and how fast they sell those that cancelled, IMO.

 

Also, is the XBONE the only system getting the CE? I imagine the 360 won't sell as well.

 

And I dont think either of the 2 best buys around me adhere to this new practice, as both have numerous AC Black Flag and Prestige Editions on the floor.

I believe the 360 will be getting a CE version as well. I'm not sure about the PC... but I would assume that would be getting one too!
