If i didnt let you guys know it was back in stock, I’d never hear the end of , “how come no one said anything?”!
And then I’d feel bad

So here!

I mentioned it in the Nintendo thread but when i saw a lack of response i realized. Maybe no one noticed, so i thought I’d try posting, it was still in stock when i posted
I guess the last of them got snagged dude
Oops

Bestbuy was sold out for a while I think, prob just came back for a bit. 

 

And sucks I missed Target. With no GCU discount, Target is actually the best deal for me with 5% off on RedCard. Not much but it's better than the 0% off I now get everywhere else.

Is there supposed to be another batch of pre orders? If so, I should cancel and get it with GCU, i didnt know BBY had it

Damn I just found out the European edition comes with an awesome steel book. I might cancel my dreamer edition pre order since I have the regular version pre ordered from back when I had GCU.

It does but it has been tough as nails to get. It's way cooler than the US LE imo though

Yeah I wish I could get my hands on the European version. The US version doesn't seem worth it to me for just the art book.

It doesnt have the steelboook? So this is all just for a nice little art book? Honestly?
It’s not worth losing the GCU at $48 for another $22 for a book without a steel case....that is wack

Nintendo is consistently screwing the US on switch CE releases at this point

The CE thread is proof of that... Multiple big N releases and exclusive EU content normal people have no chance of getting. It's frustrating.

This has been the case pretty much since the Wii, and unless their NY store offers up some special offering, no chance of seeing most items in NA.

NoA hasn't gotten ANYTHING for about 20+ years at this point, so no, they don't get it, and I have no faith they ever will at this point.

 

All of you are going to buy the game anyway so there isn't much for them to learn.

This is the fact of the situation^

 

LoZ: LA is probably my favorite Zelda title, and I really wanted to get this to have as something to play for me getting the Lite(and I love art books). I actually saw this early yesterday on Target by mistake, and didn't really know how hard it was to come by, as I would have ordered at that moment if I had. But now having missed out, I'm in no rush to buy this for any higher price, and now I'm not even going to get the Lite until I hear back on if the analog sticks will have the same issues as the standard JC or not.

 

I've spoke with my wallet for as far back as I can remember, and this is from someone who imported every "N" system/handheld since the SNES(and I would still buy the NA offerings as well). My streak of course ended at the Wii U/Switch, as I didn't see the value for either at launch, and set $200 and under for my own buy in(I had other issues as well, but to many to post here). "N" knows they have a lock on it's audience, and they give us shit, and many make mud pies and ask for more. If that's your game, have at it, and good luck to you, but if anyone is tired of fighting to spend your own money, why would you give a place such control over you? I guess sheep are always in need of a Shepard!

I had no idea NA was even getting a CE for this, but seeing as it's just an art book I can't say I am upset that I missed the boat on pre-ordering. Like everyone else I am going to buy the game regardless and have already pre-ordered a Switch Lite also proving once again that Nintendo has my wallet by the balls.

Thing is .... why? They know what we want and they offer it to others....
I dont get it, the customer service with my console defect was incredible..

It’s frustrating about the inconsistency, because now the seal of quality disappearance makes sense! ;)

No, they do get it. Japanese culture respects the term collector's or limited edition. It means that not everyone gets one and that's the point.

Well, the terms "limited" and "collectors" have different meanings.  "Collectors" just implies less quantity since there are less collectors than average players, but it does not necessarily equate to that.  "Limited" should mean a limited run and when it is over, it is over.

I'll never forget having to come back from a vacation in NYC the day before the Mario Kart 8 CE was released at that store...I rated so hard about that. I think they just hate Americans. No other reason they wouldn't sell the best stuff only to the US.

It's marketing, Nintendo probably makes a killing out off these things with the small print run and large markup.
