This comes with a preorder bonus as well:

Cheaper than the Prime discount or Best Buy GCU discount.  This price and the preorder bonus convinced me to buy it today!

 

Thanks to those that corrected me about the preorder bonus.  Nice to see the price dropped some more!

It looks like the preorder bonus being advertised on Amazon is just the launch edition. GameStop is showing the same thing.

 

Edit: It just dropped to $44.33 on Amazon though so still a better buy than anywhere else.

That's a nice price.  I'm trying to decide between that and the limited edition.  I'm also trying to figure out if I wan the vita edition, since I got the last one on that system.

This and God Wars, it is always only the PS4 version that gets discounted, I wonder why.

I didn't see any at Best Buy.  I am really excited for this game.   :)

There's a limited edition version, but it is only sold through nisamerica, $100 PS4, $80 Vita.  http://nisamerica.com/games/ysviii/

^ That's what I got. Been watching a few streams from the JP version. It looks and plays incredible. Can't wait to get my hands on it.

That preorder bonus isn't Amazon exclusive; Gamestop is including it as well.  Gamestop, however, does cost more.

I'm pretty sure the preorder bonus is just a "launch edition" bonus that will be availble at all retailers at launch, including Best Buy.  That said, the price does beat Best Buy's GCU right now.

 

Of course, we have Walmart to thank for that as Amazon is just matching Walmart's preorder price plus in store discount (like they had done for Sonic Mania and I believe God Wars PS4).

Start pestering Walmart to lower their price as that's the only way Amazon has any sale prices anymore.

If you preorder on amazon, you automatically get any future price drops.

what about the 20% off prime thing? I put it in my cart and went to checkout but it's showing 43.44 still.

Amazon Prime discount is not like GCU.  The 20% off comes off the LIST price not the actual price.  Since the actual price is cheaper than the list price with 20% off ($47.99) you get the actual price.

Already have this pre-ordered for Vita, but at this price I can afford to get it for PS4 as well. Just in case. Need it for the backklog.

Good price, but I am going to wait. Not sure I will be playing this Sept. 12 when it comes out or some other game. 

 

Looks incredible. Part of me wants Vita version because WOW that's cool. Other part of me just wants to sit back on couch and game on big screen.

FYI, the PS4 version has more actual content than the Vita version.

I opted to pre-order PS4 over Vita because of this. I love collecting games for Vita, but I have long given up on going for a complete collection.
