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.

Any pics?

 

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

I am sort of glad to have gotten the normal edition for switch cheap.

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.

I know they did this with the Zombie Army 4 CE preorder.  Didn't preorder when it was first listed, then went to preorder it a week or so ago noticed it was no longer listed.  Not sure if this means they sold out of preorders or the game has gotten delayed but I imagine it will show up again closer to release date.

I played through Vanquish at 4k 60 FPS recently on PC. It holds up quite well, and the technical upgrade makes it much more enjoyable. This will be a nice little package.

That looks awesome, probably my 3rd time buying Bayonetta but it’ll be nice to have vanquish on next gen. Plus that steelbook is NICE

Glad it's up. I'll wait for bestbuy or Amazon to put it. I refuse to give lamestop even a penny.
