Final Fantasy XV

They only have a listing for PS4, none for Xbox One. Also, use promo code "earlybird" for free shipping.


*Edit*

Based on the UPC it seems that this listing is for Final Fantasy XIV and not FF XV.

$40 is the MSRP for FF XIV and will be released 04/14/14

*Edit*

Listing was pulled and pre-orders were cancelled.

Is that price guaranteed? If so I don't care if it comes out in 2017 I'll pre-order now....

The difference between this and the Atelier deal is that they actually had the msrp price listed on the Atelier game, but had a certain % discount/pricing error applied to it. This, just seems like a placeholder price, but I could be wrong.

I doubt a brand new Final Fantasy game on the current gen of systems would MSRP at $40. This may be a placeholder price, but I can't find any information that they will honor this price once the real MSRP is announced.

By the time this game comes out, I bet your payment credit card's date will have expired.

I wouldn't count on this pre-order coming through, it's wayyyyy too far off and we're talking about GoHastings, not Amazon here.

I just submitted a to Amazon that I found it at a lower price. So the best thing that could happen is that they price match Hastings and we can order from Amazon.

Thanks for the tip but I'm sure SE will have some Exclusive CE that I'll be jumping on instead.

sure why not, but amex doesn't expire until 2016 so I'll give it a shot.

I would think if the game came out after your card expired you could contact customer service to update payment information.

I'm pretty sure this is an error.  Idk why they would price such a triple-A title preorder at 40$ .

This is an error definitely.  If you put in a in store reserve for $5.00 it shows the release date of 4/14/14, which is the release date of Final Fantasy XIV.

If this is an error, Hastings wont honor it anyways, they never do.

Too good to be true I guess. Better cancel before they ship FF XIV to you next month. Hopefully Amazon price matches.

Yeah, I think I'm going to cancel. The Gohastings UPC is missing 1 number from the UPC and it's a near copy of the FFXIV UPC.

Error or not, everyone PLEASE submit this to Amazon--they matched Target.com's $19.99 price error for The Witch and the Hundred Knight, so there's hope they'll match this, too!

They honored my $30 pre-order of LA Noire way back when and someone in the Escha and Logy thread called them and the rep said the price would be honored.

Not yet. I pre-ordered just in case since Amazon guarantees you'll get it for the lowest price from the moment you order until it ships. So if they lower it anytime from now till shipping I get that price.

Yea I got in on that LA Noire price too. Was it $30 or $20? They honored it in the "spirit of Christmas" I believe lol. I have that email still somewhere. Was classic. What's the "Escha and Logy" thread you are referring to? Are you saying they'd honor this fubar? At least with LA Noire the UPC was correct. This one isn't.

I don't mind if they don't honor and just cancel the orders. People make mistakes. But I would mind if they ship and charge me for Final Fantasy 14.

Gohastings had the pre-order of Atelier Escha and Logy for $20 instead of $50 the other day.  This  I'm not sure on, but it has XV boxart, so it's possible that they'd honor it, but I'm not sure.  At the very least, if anyone receives the other game they'll be able to get their money back.  This is a weird case, though, seeing as FF XV has no release date and the UPC was wrong, so it's up in the air.  I think there's definitely a chance this could be honored, but it's Gohastings, so who can say?

I would expect them to ship you FF14 PS4. Why I won't risk preordering it.
