Was hoping to get Yakuza 0 soon , noticed there was sale barely a week ago and now BB doesnt even sell the game anymore >_>.

Around the Holiday it was on sale, but it really hasn't been on sale since. It's an amazing game though and I recommend picking it up when you can before it goes out of print.

I want to get A Link Between Worlds too.

Still shows up as "Coming Soon" on the website with a release date of 2/11.

 

Did I miss it go up online?

I don't know why Nintendo gave these a weird Monday street date. My stores delivery of the 3 new selects isn't coming until Friday. :-k

 

Can't tell what the batman Gotham by gaslight giftset is.

Thanks, if I can't get the steel book from target. I will try to get that version. Would be nice to have the book with it.


How many people besides me still haven't received their codes yet? I just called again for like the 5th time since January 14th when it started and kept being told to "check your email, and we are still working on it. Have a nice day bye"

SOTC Special Edition coming out tomorrow, and my order still hasn't shipped. Am I getting shafted?

Can't comment for sure, but seems like the demand for this SE is higher than anticipated so I doubt any stores will have extras let alone enough to cover all the pre-orders in some cases. I hope you get your copy and hope that I can get a copy myself since I missed pre-ordering, if I can't I luckily have some options. SotC is one of my top 3 favourite games of all time and I really want to frame the map that comes with that SE.

Wario64 tweeted Newegg taking preorder for the SE again earlier, prob gone by now

I PMed this mod with my 3 order numbers and they are sending me a $30 giftcard since the codes never came.

Why is this $40 Samsung 32gb microSD card on the front page? The same card is $27 on Amazon. And anyway 32gb cards with performance as good as the Switch can utilize can be found easily in the $12 range.

No Collector's editions available in-store at any of my local Best Buys. I guess I'm waiting on this one.

It looks to be sold out just about everywhere. It's already being sold for $100 or more on eBay too.  :bomb:

It's like Sony doesn't like money, I really don't get it. The CE was my only incentive to buy day one, otherwise I'm waiting until this thing hits $15 on psn.

This whole SotC SE being OOS is ridiculous. I thought only Nintendo employed such practices of creating artificial shortages. I think the item's been unavailable to order from BB since it was listed. The window to pre-order must have been incredibly short because I swear I tried to do so once the contents of the SE were revealed. I'll take my chances and see if my store has any copies after work. Highly unlikely but I refuse to buy it from GameStop.

I tried to pre-order it about a month ago and couldn't. It is possible that they put more out though, I still see Xenoblade Chronicles 2 CEs in regards to Nintendo as well.

It did popped up for preorder every now and then, first time was when BBY send out those $10 saving code, last time it ever opened for preordered was Jan 26th (that is when I preordered). What pissed me off is if they didn't have enough inventory, they shouldn't open the listing for preorder. Missed the last boat with Newegg preorder (yesterday) because of this mess

I guess my SotC CE money is going towards Monster Hunter instead. You snooze, you lose Sony.

That sucks. I felt the same way about the Monster Hunter steelbook issue a few weeks ago. Luckily I ended up getting one a week later when my store got more in, but still sucks they didn't have enough to cover all the pre-orders.

Are they for sale individually or to cover missed pre-order?

My Target has about 4-5 Xenoblade 2 CEs. I doubt they are all missed pre-orders because I just noticed them a few weeks ago.  I also recently saw a couple along with the Fire Emblem Warriors SE at Best Buy.

Haha, that would explain why you quoted that part. The steelbooks were to cover pre-orders, I didn't see any for individual sale.

I noticed this morning that Bestbuy dropped the regular edition of Super Mario 3D Land to $19.99.

$19.99 ($15.99 GCU)
https://www.bestbuy....p?skuId=2809399

I know this is going to be the new price with the Nintendo Selects version being released on Sunday, but it’s great for anyone that wants to get it early.

I personally would much rather have the original artwork anyway. So for anyone else that feels the same way this is a good time to get it.

I’m so sad I won’t be able to get the SE edition of Shadow of the Colossus : (. Target and Walmart don’t carry them? What are the odds of GameStop or Best Buy getting any more in at some point?

IMO, I doubt it will stay out of stock. Search by location on Gamestop, some stores seem to still have some in stock.

They're going for around $100 on the resale market. If you believe in the efficient market hypothesis, then no there's probably not going to be much more coming in stock.

They are called "special", after all, it's not like they didn't warn you. Could have pre-ordered. I frankly feel that this was rather predictable.


Every time I checked on Best Buy’s website it said ‘Coming Soon’ with no option to pre-order (I checked probably 20 times on 20 separate occasions beginning pretty close to when it was announced). It wasn’t like I had months of the thing being easy to preorder at Best Buy.

The closest GameStop that says it still has one is like 65 miles away, might as well buy it at a $100 based on gas and time spent.

Never put one past "S" to short supply on a desired item and reap all the benefits.

What benefits are they "reaping" from selling fewer of these, exactly? 

 

It's a limited edition. The whole point is for quantities to be limited. It's for the benefit of collectors. The greedy thing for Sony to do would be for them to decided to make tons of these, so they'd make more money but it wouldn't be a true limited edition and would have no real collector's value.

Are you for real? There's limited and then there's "What in the actual Fuck!? This is definitely a "What in the actual fuck" situation.

The fact that I woke up and drove to the store as soon as they opened on release day should've been enough to secure a copy. The fact you basically had to pre-order to get it is fucking bullshit!
