I got Nier Automata Black Box because I am a Platinum Games fanboy and the game looked really cool to me. I also love lots of Square Enix properties and knew that some things, like their Final Fantasy CEs, tend to sell out/become expensive. I didn't really know anything about Drakengard/Nier/Yoko Taro and went in only expecting Platinum level hack and slash action. What I got was an unforgettable gaming experience and I ended up being super glad I went for the CE because it's so meaningful to me now.

 

This new game is a remake of a PS3 game, has nothing to do with Platinum and just generally lacks the same appeal to me that Automata had. If the game ends up being good I'll get it, but I can't say I care enough to buy an overpriced CE, regardless of what happens to value/scarcity of it post-launch.

Everything but combat, I actually like the first Nier better.  The game is an acquired taste, it was hammered and derided when it came out.  Less polished, flashy and popular than automata, but if you like automata for anything other than the platinum influence and combat, I think you would definitely like the first Nier too, if you can look past it’s rough spots (which are probably being cleaned up for the remake?  Fishing game, I’m looking at you...)  It’s the foundation of automata, and not Drakengard levels of wacky.  Even so, I’m still skipping the CE, it’s too much for too little.

No issues checking out on my end for the PS5 version by credit card.  I did need to be sent and enter a verification code though.

Looks like a standard version of the game?  There is a deluxe and ultimate version with dlc on the xbox store.

Edit: the same CE on the EU page shows all the DLC.  I hope they include all of that.

 

I just got the CE and added Scarlet Nexus for the steelbook pre-order.  Together it was $288 with taxes and $12 shipping.

I went with xbox.

The Square Enix store is also offering the steelbook for FFVII Intergrade as a bonus. The obvious difference compared to Gamestop is shipping cost. $10.99 for SE Store.

 

But Gamestop's isn't included in the order, it's just a throw-in, so it's an extra option for those who really want it and are worried about getting screwed by Gamestop incompetence.

Does anyone else still have a Nier that says ready for pickup but with no estimated delivery date or progress yet?

Speaking of shipping updates, why did UPS screw their tracking system up so horribly?

 

You can no longer get no detailed information on the tracking through the website. You have to use the app. Unless I'm missing something. The website doesn't even tell me where the item currently is anymore. Just the destination and current status and that's it.

 

Just awful.

Yeah, I noticed this too when trying to track my order. I hope this isn't a permanent change, it's pretty bad just getting barebones information =/

I don't normally sign in to my UPS account, but I did to see if tracking went back to what it was. Nope. Still no details of where the package currently is.

I ended up having UPS send me a detailed update via email to finally see where my Nier was.  I hate the new layout on UPS.

Anyone still waiting on their Nier Replicant White Snow Edition to ship out from SE store? Mine still says not initiated under the status.

So Wario posted last weekend about how select items from Amazon warehouse had an automatic 20% taken off at checkout. There were cyberpunk Xbox one collectors edition’s included in that and I bought one listed as like new for what ended up being $85 plus tax.

The collectors edition was still in its original shipping box from Warner Brothers with the November release date on it instead of the December release date, and the collectors edition was still factory sealed. Incredible get for what I think will be a collectors edition that will rebound in value eventually.

You guys might not be too thrilled about the White Snow Edition lol.

 

Game comes separate from the CE contents. I actually accidentally almost threw out the game. It comes in this little cardboard sleeve separate from the White Snow box and I thought it was just an insert to keep it into place. Because that's what it looks like. I picked it up to throw it out and realized it was way heavier than a hollow cardboard insert.

 

Be careful you don't do the same.

In fairness, they made it clear that it wouldn't all be in one box from the very start and specifically said it would be a "soft bundle".

The three individual Amiibos were confirmed as Gamestop exclusive (just like the individual Rise ones were), but this morning was the first time the CE was even mentioned.
