It appears to have USA shipping available now based on replies. Site is getting slammed.

I used ShopTo ages ago and they shipped to the US before so that's good, but I can't even add the game to my cart... 

 

I got an order in but holy shit, $125... they charge VAT and shipping is 18GBP.

Yes I have been watching this link for two days.  2am a couple nights ago it wasn't there yet, then several hours later at 9:30am it was 'not available'.  I don't believe that it ever went live.  It's the only amazon site that I've even found an 'unavailable' listing on so far. 

guy in wario's comments says he was able to order this morning

It just popped back in stock, but then goes out right away. Got an order in for about 90 Euros with shipping, so about $100 USD.

As soon as I login the website stops working. Cleared cookies, changed browsers. Same deal.

I have it in my cart but I'm not seeing an option for US shipping. Do we need to go further into processing for that to appear?

if you do the actual checkout and put in your US address it will let you checkout fine and charge you international shipping

18 pounds for US shipping to California. For some reason they are still trying to charge me VAT, which would make the total like $150. Hmm

Wasn't going to try being on my phone, but decided to try because watching a raid rebuild was getting boring.

Shopto went through with zero issues for me. Yay!

mine showed VAT but didnt appear to be charging it at shopto, total USD showed $120 or so. They have a pay later thing, do that and ask them to remove VAT if it's still there I guess, since you aren't supposed to pay it

Holy lord $125 is hefty for this. Watching Amazon like a hawk now but still says sold out.

VAT is in the price of the item. So it's 80 GBP, which includes 16.xx GBP for VAT.

I'll just wait for Best Buy to get the steelbook six months after the game comes out.

You'd think by now, these retailers would find a way around these high demand CEs that result in people continuously refreshing waiting for the item to be listed, trying to find it, add to cart, and check-out. 

 

Sure it might drive traffic to your site but it's causing more problems than benefits as those people aren't gonna buy something else just because they're at your website (vs a retail store where they might as they already made the drive/walk) and it's slowing/shutting down the site for customers who actually want to buy shit.

I don’t know. I haven’t seen anything about a US release yet though.

My other is that I have lost trust in having an order even securing my order, I end up ordering at multiple places just to make sure I don't get randomly cancelled at one and left sol before launch

Yeah I do this to the point of overkill. If I want a CE to be excellent condition then I'll preorder like 3 copies from different retailers with at least one for store pickup. It's annoying for those that want to be slow with their preorders, but I don't mind getting 4 notifications that my BBY order is ready for pickup when I already received a pristine copy in the mail.

 

Preordering multiples from Europe can be a bit more trouble....

You don’t seem like you have a technology background, but what would you suggest they do? Ban IPs so people can’t refresh their site? All e-commerce retailers employ some counter-measures against robot/script traffic, but people manually doing it from their browsers are real people so they wouldn’t try to block them via CAPTCHAs and other throttling measures. As for limiting re-sale, just about every site has quantity limits now.

You're right, I don't and I don't really care about this enough to have a detailed discussion about it since it benefits me in a very menial way but... just of the top of my head: they can figure out what people are searching for, can't they? If they're getting a lot of queries for something similar over and over again from either one or multiple people, then start showing a message: "We see you're searching for "Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening Limited Edition"! We don't anticipating listing that today so Fuck off". 

 

Helps both parties- me not wasting my time searching, them not having their site slow down.

Does anyone know if the Fire Emblem special edition will still come with its original case? I know it includes the steelbook, but I don't see the original case explicitly listed, but I can't think of a single Switch CE that didn't come with it.

Cant wait to see the giant PEGI/USK logo ruin the Zelda box and forever brand and taint it as IMPORT.
