IMO no. Artbooks, soundtracks, etc. Dissidia has the Warriors of Light statue that looks okay and FFXII has the Judge Magister statues, but I have enough statues already and no particular affinity toward either game.

The SquareEnix store has become even more of a shitshow and funnier.  Their solution to their CE debacle is to charge hundreds of dollars months in advance in order to prevent people from cancelling.  These guys are a joke.  :rofl:

Can't people still cancel? I thought it was possible to cancel up to a few days before the item ships?

people can still cancel, they're probably doing this to gauge on how many of these preorders are from serious buyers and not wait till the last minute to find out how many orders are bad orders.

Given this dick move by them, I might still cancel at the last minute to counter-dick them. 

 

For now though, the game looks promising and FFVII is probably the most memorable game I ever played (it's the game that made me fall in love with RPGs) so I do want it.

Definitely promoted me to cancel. Although it’s not as nasty as the companies like LRG that obviously grab cash and earn off of it for months before intending to deliver.

It's actually $330 which I totally forgot. This is a $360 buy. I'm gonna keep this one because FFVII is my favorite game ever and I want this as a collector's item, but I'm sorry I draw the line if they try and churn out $330 CEs for every episodic release. Not paying a thousand dollars for the whole set of any CE unless I get total "F you money" in my future.

I was considering the cost of the figure/bike as the $250 difference between the CE and Deluxe edition, which I'm buying instead. But you're right that it was actually more, when I went to cancel my order I think it was like $370-something after taxes and shipping. Yikes.

An easy way to make the decision for me was to frame it as, would I spend $250+ for the figure/bike separate from the game (which it already sort of is anyway)? And the answer for me was a resounding no. There's been plenty of expensive FFVII figures out there for years already which I've passed on for costing too much, and I figure if I've been living without all those all this time, I don't need this one either, especially when half of it isn't even unique to the CE.

And yeah, they probably will churn out $330 (or more!) CE's for the rest of the parts of the game, I can't imagine they'd throw away that opportunity to milk it even harder. I'm sure it'll be an Aerith or Sephiroth figure or something for the next one. And my OCD would kill me if I ordered the first one but not the rest. Definitely don't want to fall into that trap.

I was gone for a week so naturally I was a little worried.  But everything came in just fine from shop4megastore.com.   The international package required signature upon delivery.  So they had it waiting for me at the post office.  The total was $101.98 for the steelbook collection.  Would definitely order from them again.

It's harder for me to justify the CE when I got the premium on amazon for $50ish a while back.

Totally this.. 

 

I might go ahead, and cancel because $400 coming out 2 months before release is ridiculous ..

We'll know how many canceled in the next few weeks when SE has that inevitable restock. Regardless I'll be keeping mine, I actually collect Final Fantasy PlayArts Kai figures to begin with. So it was actually a perfect CE inclusion for me.

The retro packaging for Aladdin and The Lion King collection is pretty nice in person but not $50 nice. Would have made more sense to introduce these at $30 whenever the regular version gets an official price drop to $20.

Also, I ended up preordering the new Persona 5 CE at Best Buy.  Totally missed that announcement yesterday!

Chase's Q4 bonus category is Paypal. Any time you use your Chase Freedom card for a PP transaction, you get 5% back in points.

Best Buy and Amazon both have it. More of a "Day 1" edition since that is the only one available.

Once Best Buy removes a listing for an item, do they ever bring it back or is it gone for good? Just curious. Some things I was interested in and it has the “this is no longer available” but curious if they’ll bring it back eventually.

According to Microids Twitter, we are not getting the CE in the United States despite them promoting it at one point, just this Day One limited edition.

Normally when it says that on the website it means there are some stores that have it in stock so it can't be completely removed from the system until they are sold. But its very rare they do go back online.
