Everybody (including me) seems to complain about GameStop putting these limited consoles (KH3 and 500M) in bundles, but the funny thing is that the KH3 bundle is a great deal this time. "the story so far" is selling for double the retail price on eBay because it's almost sold out (at least it is in Southern California), and the Funko box is going for a bit higher than retail on eBay as well.

I didnt realize the story so far was rare too. Just got my bundle in the mail and the funko box and game are both opened (no plastic wrap) is that normal? To avoid returns/flipping? Just weird and reminds me of their gutted “new” games they try to sell in-stores a lot.

I already have the game and was gonna ebay it as new but now cant. Kind of sucks. Also very strrange that people are buying the box on ebay for $50 when it’s available on gamestop.com for $22 (even though they charged us $29.99 in the bundle) in-stock

That's lame the game is gutted. I was planning on selling our returning and buying the all-in one digitally. It looks like you can still get $60 for used on eBay (vs $40 retail).

Was ‘the story so caf’ supposed to be limited? I picked it up last week and noticed no one really sells it anymore.

It's just a compilation of the 1.5+2.5 and 2.8 releases right

Yes. Nothing new or special. It seems it was a one time shipment, no idea why.

Yeah. But $40 for a 2 disc compilation was a good deal if you wanted to catch up on the series.

I guess... the first compilation and 2.8 were $20 each anyway, so no real savings. I'd prefer to have them separate.

24K points hit my GS account for the PS4 Pro purchase since it’s 2x points. Nice to see 👍🏼

It seems the deluxe edition of KH3 is massively overproduced. Wish it was more limited. Debating on keeping my preorder or just canceling it and waiting for it to drop half price.

That's not too surprising as this was a long waited game so I'm sure they would rather over then under produce.  Also wasn't the majority of Kingdom Heart games overproduced.

My copy of The Story So Far also came without shrinkwrap and with the case cracked. Pretty lame

I'm thinking of skipping my preorder of the deluxe edition as well...$87.59 after tax. With my backlog I could wait until Black Friday and probably pay $21.89 after tax.

So is the 10 months, Steelbook, pin, artbook and pre-order poster worth $65.70?

Idk about that since it’s either out of stock or low stock at all best buys near me. Couldn’t even get my pre order n got an email saying it’s out of stock. Talked to an employee at bestbuy saying the truck is arriving tonight so they’ll probably have one for me tomorrow. Fingers crossed

I really want this and was totally planning on keeping it... but it's essentially a matter of how much is the special edition controller and console are worth to me. Definitely not worth losing out on $300+ in profit. That being said, if I were to sell it there's no way I would sell it on ebay as it's not worth dealing with scammers on there. Even on facebook/craigslist, I know I would get plenty of butthurt people threatening/insulting/trolling me, so dunno if it's worth it.

It's not worth it to sell locally. There's a 500-Million Pro listed around me for $900. It's been sitting there for almost a month. You should see the comments. Basically asking to get robbed because there's so many scammers. Good luck if you try to sell it locally.

Who cares?  Aren't you the guy constantly bitching about scalpers and resellers?  Producing a sufficient quantity kills that secondary market and may even result in some people picking it up at a significant discount down the road.  That's a win-win for everyone.

Anyone get their Pro yet? If so, how was it shipped—i.e., was there a proper shipping box, packing, etc.

Just got mine. It came in a proper box that fit the console snugly with no packing materials. Mine looks to be in perfect condition.

Edit - I'm pretty shocked it came in today. The est delivery was tomorrow

Best buy stock near me is low, too; but, there's plenty at GameStops, Target's, and Walmarts.

It's back in stock on Amazon.jp. It cost me $520. Not bad especially how rare it is. Does it come with the game?

Wasn't really too much packaging, but at least the box wasn't overly big (i.e. it would have been bouncing around).

The last thing I tried to flip locally was the Mario themed new 3ds that was available Black Friday 2016. Got some real nice people texting me. Haven't flipped anything since. Will just sell it used when the PS5 comes out (if it's actually backwards compatible). Most people are crazy, so don't think it's worth it either.

The only reason I jumped on it right now was with best buy GCU and the $10 extra back. I'll keep it sealed for now since I have six weeks to return/price adjust if need be.

That may be your store screwing up. It's plentifully available from best buy's website and at every gamestop store.

I agree. I'm just making a point in that it's called the deluxe edition, so it probably isn't limited. I do want my 'collector's editions' more limited though, as then what's the point of collecting if an item is massively produced. I think this is price to high though. Sekiro is $90 and includes a lot of physical items. This steelbook/artwork should have been a pre-order elusive or day one edition at the same price.

Almost every BBY in LA and OC counties in California shows earliest pickup is February 7th. The supply chain at Best buy is truly f'd.

Ships immediately from Best Buy and in store pick up available at all stores within 100 miles from me by Feb 2.

I mean Sekiro is also one of the top 5 deals I've probably ever seen all time in a CE. Holding anything else up to that is pretty silly, getting a statue, a steelbook, an artbook, and a letter opener for $90 is absurd.

I preordered it day one before the letter opener existed and did think it was a good deal. I'm just hoping, though I am expecting, the statue to come out like the Marvel vs Capcom egg fiasco, or Fallout 76 nylon bag.

To anyone that got the console and opened it... Is the theme and keyblade a code in the Standard game, on a separate sheet of paper or already preloaded in the console?

I presume the console edition comes with the game in a plastic case. That irks me to no end, got the God of War PS4 Pro and no steelbook inside. The only way to get that at the time was to buy a second copy, and only in the collectors edition at $150. Still don't have that steelbook to this day.
