How so?

Their games are priced at the old pricings. Ps4 games are $59.49, 3DS are $39.99, etc.

Most of the stuff I want is still not up for pre-order on either Best Buy or Amazon.ca...still got to wait for that third to top off Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, and Super Smash Bros 3DS

Did you click on the E3 promotion offer on their front page, or did you try searching for the game?

Tried both; had more luck just searching for the games specifically.

purchased from amazon.ca (all ps4):

wwe 2k15

the last of us remastered

evolve

nhl 15

alien: isolation

 

had to use the help chat to get the 30% discount (originally gave me only 15%), but good deals and took less than 5 minutes.

How did you get the other 15%? As far as I know it's already 15% discounted, then you get another 15% at checkout or something. The confusing part is they don't show the discounted game prices, only the discounted total at checkout.

Looks like Amazon fixed their goof, for anybody who hasn't ordered. We were getting 30% off the already 15% discounted price earlier today, they fixed it so that it only removes 15% at checkout instead of 15%.

 

For anyone who submitted their order you lucked out.

They'll probably fix this for people who already placed their orders.

Actually, some people have had success getting the additional 15% by contacting customer support. I gave it a whirl, I spoke to "Hema", she removed an additional 15%. You gotta submit your order then request the extra 15% after.

 

Last of Us, Destiny, WWE 2K15 for PS4 and Smash Bros Wii U came down to $180 total after the new discount.

I'm going to wait for E3 before pre-ordering. They might announce something I want during the presentation.

Yeah I know what you mean. I don't own PS4 or XBO, there's absolutely nothing for me to preorder short of the hypothetical Last Guardian and mayyyybe X but I'm holding out for a CE.

Hypothetical Last Guardian will be on PS4.

Yeah, and that's the thing with these savings from a collector's perspective - it's a waste considering most of us are willing to pay whatever for the CE/LE/SE. I'm not a fan of pre-ordering over a year out either.

 

I was thinking of discussing the chances of certain titles getting the premium treatment from their publishers here. For example, some Nintendo games like Smash Bros. and Pokemon I can't see getting that. Perhaps some kind of pre-order bonus like a poster or 5-track CD, sure, but not a legit collector's edition. Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem, on the other hand, might if Atlus has anything to say about it.

 

Anyone have any sort've prediction on this sort've thing? for any upcoming games that haven't had a CE/LE/SE announced.

 

No? I'm the only motherfucka that thinks about this shit. Well, okay.

Don't understand why stuff like Skylanders Trap Team and Disney Infinity aren't on the list. Added them to my cart, but no discount. Plus they have a bunch of games still not posted.

More games should be added to the E3 deal tomorrow. I did a search for Zelda Wii U, Final Fantasy Type-0, splatoon, Star Fox; and all them showed up so expect them added to the deal.

Yeah, Fantasy Life (and other stuff from Nintendo) is going up too. Hopefully this will all be on the deal by morning.

Best Buy finally added more Wii U games, but now there are options to buy both "X" and "Yoshi's Land", or the same games under their new titles, "Xenoblade Chronicles X" and "Yoshi's Wolley World". I preordered the games under their old names. I am assuming they will combine the orders for each game?

Yoshi's Land in my cart became Yoshi's Wolley World, so I don't expect any problem.

 

A quick question for those experienced with pre-orders over the years: If MSRP goes down for some of these games (ie; Captain Toad is $64.99 right now, but I expect it to be more in the $44.99 range officially), will the price on these pre-orders be reflected to match that, or will I be stuck at the higher price and forced to cancel?

I have some games from the last BestBuy preorder deal that aren't out yet. They're $53.99 each but if I preorder with the E3 deal instead, I save an extra $5 each. Some of the games from when I did the deal before have already arrived, so I think that's why it won't let me cancel the order. Is there any way to cancel the order for the rest of the games? Can I just return them when the games come out?

I am just about ready to checkout my 12-game pre-order, just a few quick questions.

 

1) Because my pre-order is waaay above the threshold for the 30% discount, can I simply cancel a pre-order in the future (before it ships)? If not, what exactly is the return policy? Do I bring the game to a retail location or ship it back?

 

2) I live in downtown Toronto, can I realistically expect the game to arrive on my doorstep on launch day?

FS has never missed a delivery on launch day for me in Toronto. It might depend on how Canada Post is in your area though; You may have to trek down to the post office to pick it up, as they say 'no safe drop' on all packages.. although they always stuff mine into my mailslot. :P

The price on the pre-orders will drop to reflect the new price, BUT, what's uncertain is whether you'll get the 30% off that new lower price.

That's not uncertain, they've spelled it out in the past years. The discount isn't supposed to carry onto any price drops. So if any of the $70 games drop $20, we'll only be saving a dollar...

Unless you argue feverishly with CSRs. I managed to get them to honour it on one game, once. It wasn't really worth it though. I've learned from the past couple E3 sales, if the games drop in price and you're pissed - just return the pre-order and wait till it drops further haha.

I ordered these games last year, FS/BB better not screw this up.
