Gamestop sent me the Monster Hunter Sunbreak CE notice. Does anyone remember how long before release date they usually charge? I remember in the past it was 7-10 days, but not sure if they have since changed.

The Modern Warfare 2 steelbook on GS now says it ships with the game.  When it went live it only said to pick it up at the store.

Just got a cancellation from GS for my AI Nirvana CE, but got a $10 coupon, not gift card. Interesting

Same, and that was my replacement order after my first one on Amazon also got cancelled. Did they drastically cut back on the print run for this or something? Seems like nowhere is actually able to fulfill orders for the thing.

Joining the AI Somnium Files Nirvana GameStop cancellation club. Also had ordered a copy on Amazon on originally when it was first announced which was cancelled.

Could be, especially with rising costs they could be deciding it's not worth making all the preordered copies. Could also just be difficulty in getting them manufactured and shipped in time and stores are canceling because it's easier than having to deal with open orders.

 

I'm hoping this will be like Shin Megami Tensei V's LE where it was hard to preorder and ones who did got canceled, but then months later it was sitting in stock and even went on sale. Or it could be Ni no Kuni Wizard's edition all over again.

 

I also just heard about Amazon having preorders for Nirvana on the 16th. So again, hoping copies will drift in, although this whole thing is so irritating. Hopefully not just scalpers and bots end up with shipments.

Also just had my GameStop P/O cancelled, which was my backup after my Day 1 Amazon order was cancelled. 

 

Honestly fucking pissed at this, and REALLY hope Spike Chunsoft commissions a second run of the CE. 

 

Really crowded market right now, would be a shame to lose a bunch of sales due to pissed off customers

 

Edit: EVEN one of the PRODUCERS of the game had 2 pre-orders cancelled on them

 

And according to one of the English VA's on the official discord, a bunch of employees at Spike Chunsoft have had their pre-orders cancelled.

 

Looks like the finger pointing has begun, Gamestop online is saying that the problem is "Beyond them" while Spike Chunsoft is saying that the problem is the retailers.

 

truly a shitshow of the highest of magnitudes for a game that is getting high praise.

Pretty shocking to see Target be the one fulfilling these... seems like they're usually the "approve delays, then cancel" retailer.

My Target order from February shows “preparing shipment”. I had an order with Best Buy from the day it was announced but cancelled it, changed my mind again in February and was lucky Target had them still. I think the retailers are too busy with the millions of other SKU’s they sell, and I think Spike probably sent a token email about stock amounts, declared their ass covered in their own conscience, and didn’t follow up. It blows my mind how much companies suck at selling their products. If I dropped the ball like this at any of my jobs in the past and lost a customer, and act like a child and point the finger, I’d be laid off so fast.

Large corporate companies like Target, have dedicated teams for specific categories, not to mention account managers and the like. Even if by your definition of a token email, that's all they got, that's enough of a paper trail to confirm their due diligence. Follow up would have been on the retailer.

I'm not defending spike chunsoft for whatever happened here, but please don't pretend to know what you're talking about to justify your point

I assumed it'd be cancelled but Target just shipped my AI Somnium Files Nirvana PS4 CE order! :D

I pre-ordered it back in September using a '$20 Off $100 Storewide' coupon and a 'Save 10% On One Electronics Or Video Game Item' coupon so I got it for $90.83 shipped.

 

Here's hoping everyone that got screwed over by other retailers is able to get a copy!

Target has also sent my Switch AI CE that was preordered last summer.  Says Saturday delivery.  Now I just hope it arrives in decent shape since I wont be able to get a replacement.

"My copy of AI Somnium Files Nirvana PS4 CE arrived today" is what I would be saying if FedEx had delivered it to me instead of somewhere else if they even actually delivered it at all -_-

So it looks like we can cut back on the cyber bullying of Spike Chunsoft, they are already posting updates


 

I was able to snag one PS4 CE from Amazon earlier for normal price, it doesn't have a release date just a "We will email you a delivery date soon" so let's see how well that holds.

Yeah, throughout this whole process I've gotten the feeling that Spike Chunsoft is just as confused about what's happening as we are. They've definitely been more proactive, vocal, and empathetic about the situation than other companies when their CEs get cancelled via Amazon.

 

Not to say that fixes the issue (clearly it doesn't since many are still without the CEs they ordered long ago), but I appreciate the way they're handling it at least.

I have a feeling this will be easily available soon, like a few others from similar situations 

Kingdoms of Amalur....I am looking at you!

Seems odd that so many retailers are having stock issues with this, except Target. 

 

I wonder if they accidently sent a bunch of extra stock to Target instead of GS, BBY and Amazon?

Sounds to me like the nsw and xbox versions will remain scarce while they make a new order of the ps4 version.

 

I'm still going back and forth on this one.  I own the LE of the first game and enjoyed it well enough to buy into a CE of the 2nd.  I just really don't want the aiba statue.

Fwiw the Aiba statue is by Goodsmile Corp which is a VERY good quality manufacturer. You will be able to sell it for prolly $40+ easily, if not more.

If this really is the only way to obtain the figure, absolutely. It's not unheard of for some $30-40 Pop Up Parade figures to sell for $90+.

Looks like the batch of ps4 CE's Spike Chunsoft said would go up on amazon at msrp sold out overnight.
