The game is out early and I went to BB today to pick it up.  With @gamers unlocked it is $40.  The clerk said, oh this comes with a $10 gift card.  I don't know how, I did not see it anywhere, but I did get a $10 gift card for buying it. 

 

I don't know if this gift card is specific to this game, but it seems like it is, so if you want the game, now is the time.

the ps4 version is $40 not $30 so might want to change your title cause not every one has gcu so the title misleading. And also add ymmv in store only maybe on the gift card deal cause it not in the ad and also not listed on the website

Will try to see if my store has one later today. The PS4 version is MSRP of $49.99 with GCU it is $39.99. If a gift card was included that would be a nice bonus.

It depends on who you talk to and how they perceive the deal...just as long as you don't apply the $10 savings to this purchase for getting the GC AND to the next purchase for using the GC you'll be A-OK. :)

I pre-ordered this on PS4 to try it out last week. I didn't see anything about a $10 gift card but it would nice if one magically appeared in my email. My copy shipped the other day so I should have it soon.

It saddens me that there isn't a version for :xb1: yet, but if the game does well enough maybe they will release one down the road?  Doubt it, especially if it has to compete with the likes of Dragon Age: Inquisition...

This. A GC bundle should be stated explicitly.

I did an online preorder on Monday for in-store pickup. No GC when I picked it up this morning.

The dev has made several public comments against the XB1 so I doubt that will ever happen.

I did a store pickup today and didn't get a giftcard. Had them ring one up in store and it prompted the GC.

I feel like this game will tank in price regardless, I'll probably just wait a few weeks and grab a used one

Although it is just one article, it doesn't mention any contention between the two companies other than the devs didn't get the dev kit for :xb1: in a timely fashion:

I get from that article that the situation could be worse.  However, unless the game sells millions of copies I doubt they'll port it to :xb1:.

I've been interested in this but think I'll just gamefly it. Don't think it'd be one I'll want to keep in my collection but definitely want to play it. From what I've read from other people who have played it, I guess its similar to The Witcher in terms of combat.

 

BTW-Here is a small review from a amazon customer (PS4 version)

 

I didn't expect much going into this game but I did get quite a bit of enjoyment out of it. It doesn't do anything new for its genre but it sure as hell is an interesting ride

Pros
+Challenging Combat
+New ip
+Classic Rpg feel
+Choose your story
+Doesn't hold your hand
+Crafting was deeper than expected
+The world craves more exploration

Cons
-Uninspired Enemies
-Story did not interest me
-Character customization was lazy
-Terrible lip sync and voice acting
-Skill trees felt bland

Overall - Bound By Flame is one of those games that I'll always remember playing. If you buy it just for an rpg you wont be dissapointed, but if you're looking for Dragon Age you will not find it here. Bound By Flame is just a good game.

Yup. This is why I'm passing on it entirely. Sounds like a real twat blaming Xbox for "not getting a dev kit in a timely manner". Seems more like they didn't wanna spend the time to make one for X1 owners. Their loss.

I downloaded it from PSN on Tuesday for PS3. I have played for about 2 hours thus far - and it is surprisingly fun. Satisfying combat and a good crafting system. For crafting, you just open the menu and craft - no need for a table or station. It is not open world - you progress thru the world/story in hub-like areas.
If the gameplay of Amalur, Diablo, or even Dark Souls came together - but had visuals and dialogue closer to something like Hunted: Demon's Forge - it would be this game.

Just an FYI for those looking for some info from somebody who has actually played it.

People get a feeling of being in the superior cool kid club when things go right with their favorites. Personally I'm a huge gamer and buy all of the consoles and handhelds to enjoy. Coexist baby.
