Cyberdimension Neptunia: 4 Goddesses Online is back in stock at Best Buy for $19.99 / $15.99 GCU. Thought I'd missed it since it was on clearance before it went OOS.

Lucky. I've refreshed that page so many times since the clearance started...

Ummm has anyone else noticed that on Amazon maybe for some newly created pre-order games such as Punch Line (was going to pre-order this), Girl Metal, newest Atelier game, Death end Re:Quest, Zanki Zero, Liar Princess, Princess Guide, Penguin Wars, P5 and P3 dancing games, maybe others.....but I don't see any 20% off pre-order price for any of those. 

 

It may be speculation of course, but it maybe the beginning of the end for the pre-order discount. These games don't fall under the remaster rule or whatever for that, so it may be sneaking off of newer listings and well that's it for it. 

Yeah, I've noticed this as well.  Basically every new title that I have been interested in hasn't had the 20% preorder offer applied yet.  Dead Cells, which comes out in 9 days doesn't have it and has been orderable for months.  I've got that preordered from BB so it doesn't bother me too much.  Moonlighter though is not available at BB yet, and still doesn't have the 20% off yet from Amazon.  Many other titles as well.

 

It seems like they are phasing it out - and trying to do it quietly.

Yeah, I see that the VC4 special edition I ordered right away is still showing $99 on Amazon. I was hoping it would sneak in with the 20% off, but I guess it won't.

My Fallout 76 has the discount though :roll:

Bestbuy has VC4 SE, so if you have GCU, you can get 20% off there.

 

Since Amazon doesn't have any discounts or bonuses though, might as well grab it from Gamestop which includes a hat (also less shipping damage risk).

It's kind of sad I may get Mario/Zelda though I don't plan to get a Switch until SMT or a really good bundle is out....or a redesign haha. Reminds me of when I had a Neptunia LE and some other RPG before I ever owned a PS3.

Forgot to post the PS+ games last week, so I'm doing it this week. This weeks sale is just an Ubisoft publisher sale, so I'm not linking it.

Does anyone know if the PS4 version of SNK Heroines is exclusive to the CE? I see the Switch standard edition up for pre-order, but I can't find the PS4 one anywhere, and the game releases in less than a month.

Yes, the physical PS4 version is exclusive to NISA's CE. The digital version should be available on PSN.

Well, that really sucks. I don't want to spend that much money on it. Haha
