I mean the content is the same it looks like

Box is different, that's why I said "slightly"

Judging from the picture looks like Europe's is a soft cover art book, while ours is hardcover and has 20 more pages. Their soundtrack comes in a jewel case, our's comes in a cardboard sleeve. The box is also different. So quite a bit of a difference.

Only thing that matters is the box in NA since 99% of NA ones won't ever be opened  :D/

At $100 I'll hope have to hope they overproduce it like they did for the Wii U one. I even bought it again when it dropped so I could get one in better condition since BB kept butchering the ones they sent me. Had it been $64 or  maybe $72 after GCU I would have been all over it but don't even have a Switch yet. It does look good though.

 

I will be buying 2 of the Culdcept Revolt LEs when Best Buy finally lists it. I'm sure that will be the one to be overproduced.

Pre-ordered the Xenoblade Chronicles 2 CE instantly.  200 page artbook sounds amazing.  Really glad they're doing another Xenoblade SE.

Wonder what the odds are that we get a Switch Wolfenstein or DOOM CE now that they have been announced.

Less hassle to get it from NIS directly, then it will be packed properly and you only have to order one.  I wish NIS handled ALL CEs for every company.

The Culdcept Revolt LE was already up at Best Buy - got my order in a few months ago.  I'm sure it may come back in stock closer to release date as people's orders get canceled for incorrect payment info, etc though not sure how many more Best Buy will have.

Fuck. Thanks for letting me know. I bought a $150 eBay gift card in preparation for it. Why the hell does it still say Coming Soon? I thought they only did that when it hasn't been up for preorder yet. Does Amazon limit how many LEs you can buy with the Prime discount like Best Buy? I have two friends that want one so if I got 4 would that be too many? Those fuckers needs to get Prime.

I think it says "coming soon" when they sell out before release date, then once the release date hits it changes to "sold out."  Like I said I also wouldn't be surprised if they put canceled orders up again right around the release date so just keep watching it like a hawk.

Culcept will in all likelihood come back in stock. I originally ordered one then cancelled it. I'm pretty much done with all NIS/XSEED/Iffy LEs. Rare exception was Ys because it came with a nice steelbook and I like the series.

Not a CE but if you buy Mario from Nintendo UK you get a bad ass Cappy hat! You'll either need to use a mail forwarding service or live in the UK.

Got an order in for XC2 CE. Looks good. Odd that the US gets 20 more pages... I wonder if it's just some extra content or if the book is entirely different?

Managed to sneak in an order for MvC Infinite at Walmart for $110. Now what's this I hear about it going back to one on one? Going to have to look at reviews closely. Might just sell it off or cancel it. Already feeling disappointed. Stupid honest game trailers. Lol

What did you buy exactly O_o, the CE is exclusive to Gamestop, and the Deluxe is only $90.

I know why you thought that... There is/was something that is GS Exc that is very similar but I can't quite recall it. Something other than the UMvC3 standalone release.

I probably missed it because I had it ordered from NISA at the time but then GameStop announced the preorder DLC so I canceled. Now everyone gets that DLC (here - http://nisamerica.co...evolt/free-dlc/) so now I'll hope Best Buy lists some more closer to launch or just get it from Amazon.

I wish NIS handled ALL CEs for every company.

I agree with that 110%^

 

My Ys just showed up from them Monday, and it was packaged beyond well, like everything I get from them. I normally buy a few games together from them, to qualify for the free shipping, and sine my backlog is beyond reason, I'm never in a rush for the games anyway.

 

But even if I had to cover the shipping cost out of pocket, I would gladly pay it, as their shipping is spot on in almost every case(packaged well, shipped fast/secure, and often arrives before release). If and when you do happen to a get a damaged item, they have more than enough saved to offer replacements. They are one of the few places I can honestly say understands it's user base.

 

If you get a sold out item from GS, BB or Amazon damaged, your SOL each and every time. I wish those places offered a premium packaging service, as their shipping is normally ass due to the "numbers" of it all. If any company would ever offer something like that, it should be from GS, as their user base are gamers. So they should understand the collector more than anyone, but when you have a place like that gutting games, you realize rather quickly, they are probably the most clueless of any of the big retailers. So I gave up on that dream awhile back. LOL

If you just want the discount, you can get it Amazon. One of those odd ball CEs that are still getting the 20% Prime discount.

My Ys VIII CEs both showed up to day. And damn, it's a heavy ass package. I almost cancelled it because I'm sick of NISA CEs but decided to keep it since I like the series. 

 

Also I was hoping for a real CE for Radiant Historia but I guess a free launch day upgrade is a nice enough extra.

North American Version

Europe gets a slightly different version It seems.DJox09NXUAEvbRA.jpg

Hmmm.....why does the US version say "Metal Case" while the EU version says "Steelbook"? I really hope Nintendo isn't giving the US a crappy knockoff case.

Well the US artbook is 20 pages longer. I just wish the main characters weren't 12 years old because than I'd be more excited for the game.
