There is so much beauty in this image! :)

 

It would be nice to do an in-store pre-order at gamestop for this, so I'll wait for that. It'll prolly be tomorrow (08/31/2018) when it opens, so keep an eye out!

 

If I miss it though, I'll just line up outside Target in December like I did for amiibos. It'll be like it's 2015 all over again!

 

edit: it's up at gamestop BTW: https://www.gamestop...-edition/167558

Yes. $74.99 by itself.

Sorry, OCD at work, why would you feel the need to post the gamestop link WHEN IT'S IN THE VERY FIRST POST OF THIS THREAD... and it's actually been up at gamestop for a while now, nobody is buying it because of tax + shipping ($12) which stings for what you're getting.

I pre-ordered this 3 days ago from GS. I have elite pro. I did not get charged shipping. Is the $12 shipping everyone complaining about for non-elite pro?

Hardly qualifies as complaining, $12 is a lot for shipping especially since most other online retailers do free shipping.

So yes or no?

Yes, Elite Pro is the only membership that still gives free shipping and that will only be until your membership expires.

$12 shipping really is ludicrous considering other retailers offer it free. If I didn't have elite pro there's no way I would pay that, even if it's something I wanted. Main reason I didn't preorder the Solaire amiibo; I'm not paying $23+ to get screwed over. We're reaching Square-Enix levels of shipping-killed-the-deal now.

Oh that's good to know. Have Elite Pro until 2021 so that works. I barely buy from GS online though but nice perk.

I suspect they will cancel your Elite Pro benefits long before 2021 given that the program is no longer available to join.  I suspect they will probably give us until the end of the year and just refund the balance, if any.

Not bad if they do. I don't mind a refund if they do.

GameStop is being very smart, which is also very douchey in this case. They know damn well that this is a very rare and sought after item. They know that with Amazon out of the way, they’re more or less the last option for people who want this. They also know people will absolutely want this game day one.

So, online only. By not allowing in-store, they make the only option to get the special edition and have it day 1 to be paying their $22 day one shipping. But that’s all profit for them. They will mail these out before release day, via normal shipping speed, to arrive on launch day. They will not wait until a day before and do an overnight shipment.

So, they’ll pay the normal cost of shipping and pocket the rest of that $22. I will be missing out on the first ever special edition of my favorite game series because of this. I missed Amazon preorders for having a job.

On top of that, GameStop will almost certainly oversell these intentionally. That way, they “pre-auth” your card periodically from now until launch and collect interest on that money before returning it to you. Then, just before launch, the cancellation emails will be sent out. It is MUCH harder to oversell an item in-store than it is online.

I’ve decided to pay a scalper instead. I hate scalpers, but I hate GameStop more. And I hate pre-auths more than basically anything. I’d rather pay $300+ to a scalper than pay GameStop $22 for release day shipping and also deal with their periodic pre-auths leading up to the inevitable cancellation when they don’t get enough.

$22 shipping is pure profit for them. They are paying $4-$8 to ship, and pocketing the rest to use later as masturbatory lube.
