Weird, I placed my 5/30 order with a US billing and shipping address. They just updated it on 6/15 to say it's in storage due to Covid 19.

Yep, they have been taking orders from US buyers for a while and said they would ship once Covid restrictions lifted.  Maybe they decided it wasn't worth the hassle going forward.

Keep in mind though that the versions sold at Best Buy are a lesser version. For instance Gorogoa doesn't come with the window cutout case and Sayonara Wild Hearts doesn't have interior art and doesn't come with the patch.

yah REZ, What Remains of Edith Finch, Hyper Light Drifter, Donut County and Grim Fandango are so far the only iam8bit PS4 games that are not available at best buy

IAm8Bit games going to BestBuy is a (relatively) recent thing. The first several PS4 releases (the ones redrum mentioned) all predated that arrangement. Every IAm8Bit game I'm aware of since then has also been sold at BestBuy.

There was also an iam8bit store exclusive release of Grim Fandango on PS4, and (although they’re available on disc from other publishers in different editions) Inside & Gang Beasts.

That makes me feel a wee bit better about buying Sayonara Wildhearts via Iam8bit. I really don't care for limited releases, and if I had known this was getting a BBY release, I would have saved $15, got it faster, and scored BBY points.

Was looking through my wishlist on amazon and noticed Cat Quest 2 (Cat Quest 1 + 2 Pawsome Pack) for switch was listed.  Fearing the worst, as items you order disappear from the wishlist, I checked my purchase history and I have no open orders and Cat Quest 2 was cancelled on me.  Super bummed.  I ordered that when it went live. Thankfully Bestbuy still had it for preorder so jumped on it... though no free shipping option.

I always order PQube stuff from Videogames Plus.  With the favorable exchange rate, free shipping and no tax, it's usually slightly cheaper and they usually get PQube stuff a few days or even a week before Amazon or Best Buy.  They also ship from the US side and the games usually get to me on the West Coast in 2-3 days.   For Cat Quest II, they also have an exclusive pin set on both platforms that other US retailers won't get.

Don't forget that VGP has a major security issue on their web site. Don't enter your credit card info directly, use Paypal. It has been going on for quite some time and they refuse to do anything about it.

 

I figure most people know about this by now, but I saw someone get caught up in it recently. They got hit with fraudulent charges on their credit card right after ordering from VGP.

 

Personally I won't use their site because of their stubbornness to fix this. If I must buy from them I use their eBay store.
