I've been waiting for the Silver Anniversary Edition to pop-up at Best Buy so I can get 20% off with my GCU. The thing is though you CANNOT get through checkout on your Desktop, you need to go through the mobile site and then you shouldn't have any problems with checkout.
 
$48 (pretax) after 20% off.
 
Edit: Updated with direct link to the mobile site - wouldn't direct correctly until I put it in a quote.

 

Edit 2: Regular site works now, added that link too.

Not a problem partially my fault since the link I gave was to the desktop version of the site - I updated it with the mobile link (which wouldn't direct correctly until I put it in a quote for some reason).

Very tempted to get this!  Previews say this is an action RPG (a genre I love), but do you control just one character, or a whole party of characters?  I prefer to just control a single player like in the Diablo games, not constantly juggle control of a "party" of characters.

You control a party of members, but only really need to switch characters when you run into an enemy that isn't weak against your character's weapon. It's all really fast tho, you switch characters with a press of a button, so you'll be back to your main almost instantly after the enemy is taken down

OK thanks for the update!  Sounds like its very manageable.

Nice find, OP.  Worked well with a $5 RZ certificate I had to use on the purchase.

 

Also, reviews for the curious:

Grabbed one. Been looking for a slightly discounted version of this since it came out. Thanks!

Had this since launch, and still haven't opened it. I ordered through the mobile site, and I had a $20 certificate so I only paid $16 out of pocket for it. It looks like a ton of fun though!

Full price unless you have GCU.

Are you sure this will actually ship?  I've never heard of something like this which isn't really limited in any way only working if you order using the mobile site.

Nope, but I'm willing to take the chance. Worst case scenario is I get my money back, best case is I get what I paid for.

 

Edit: Mine is in the "Preparing Order" phase. Looks like it will ship.

I ordered one a couple weeks ago using the mobile method. I received it with no issues. No idea why it's not available on the full site.

This video will give you an idea

 

 

Anyway, took the plunge and bought this, thanks. Had a $40 reward code. I did try to buy this weeks ago through the regular portal, but I couldn't because they would not ship it to my local store or to my home. I was able to select my local BB through this, so fingers crossed. I don't want to waste that reward code.

The soundtrack is worth the extra $20 by itself (3 disks, 64 songs.) You also get a 150 page mini strategy guide/artbook. The cloth map & compass are just filler by that point.

We've been making some changes to how we handle links, mainly for performance reasons - I've edited your first post, it should be fixed? (Note that URLs now go through a CAG redirect script.)

Thanks OP. Had zero luck preordering this on the Best Buy website. I got the same errors you get now using the desktop site but had no problem using mobile. Bizarre but at least I should be able to get it. Had a $15 reward cert so $36 out the door is a great deal.

I'm guessing this one wont be around very long. I checked Amazon out of curiosity and they only had 486 left in stock. I hope I'm not kicking myself in 6 months seeing this hit $30 or less.

I think you meant 2 years for $30, and you need a coupon for that.

Yes sorry 2 years for $30. Still waiting on my coupon my gcu expired in April. Was hoping they were still sending them out. Getting this game with the 20% off would be nice.

I preordered this through the main BB site the weekend before it released - it gave me trouble at first but eventually went through.  Anyway, the game is great as is the collector's edition package.  It's the perfect type of portable game to me - light on story, heavy on action, easy to jump in & out of as needed.  Be warned, it's a little slow getting started (and the setup for the story is extremely cliched) but once the action starts it never really lets up.  And the story does improve later on - it's almost the JRPG version of The Hangover.  :-P

You should go to the BB unboxed forums and PM Mike with your info (id, name, email, last renewal date) and he can arrange to get you the coupon. Don't just sit around waiting for it.

Actually, he shouldn't.  His GCU membership expired more than six months before 11/15, so he's not eligible for the coupon.

I can also confirm that I was able to get a copy of this pre-ordered, shipped, and delivered a few days after release date by pre-ordering through the mobile site--app, actually.  Still haven't played the game, but the soundtrack is glorious--3 CDs worth of a combination of lounge music, metal, and those generic RPG pop songs that always crop up.  Makes the drive to work an adventure every day!
