Did anyone here use shop4megastore for their skyward sword steelbook and did you get any tracking update? I didn’t have an account, just used paypal but cannot find any info on the actual order.

Wtf for real. Oh well at least my other ordered shipped. Makes me wonder if they over sold the skyward sword steelbook bundle or something.

Woke up to the same cancellation email, so I placed an order with shop4megastore since they had a few left to order, pretty upset after I’ve been so patient waiting for it to ship

For those who ordered Zelda + Steelbook from ShopTo, how much did they end up charging? I got the email at the beginning of the month saying it dropped from $112 to $84 but now when I look at my invoice it still charged $112 and my ShopTo account shows it is empty. Did anyone else have this happen?

Same.  It did add like $12 to my balance for a while, but it went away. I should have the game tomorrow or Friday. Same for the amazon.it Joy Cons. 

 

I got another respond from Bandai that my Scarlet Nexus is finally about to be shipped.  It only took a month.

im really enjoying skyward sword; plays really well since they got rid of the mandatory motion controls.

 

I tried playing it on Wii 10 years ago (jeez has it really been that long???) and just could not get into having to swing the wiimote every which way every 5 seconds.

Interesting, every review I watched said the manual controls are really awkward and they went back to motion controls.

 

My wii mote never calibrated right when I tried playing it on Wii. It took me a half an hour to be able to perform a diagonal slash in the opening tutorial and I said there's just no way this is going to work having to complete a whole game with my controls this imprecise. So I shelved it and never went back to it.

Apparently some (most?) NIS boxed CEs and limited editions appear identical from the outside for multiple regions?  Bought one online from a US based reseller, examined pictures, title and description carefully.  It was identical to the US version from all angles, no region code anywhere, and no mention of not being US region, so of course I assumed that was what I was buying.  Guy has it up on multiple sites, same thing, he said he got a bunch of them from an overseas distributor, so he knows it’s not US region.  How do you not mention that, unless trying to scam people that will not open the sealed CE and never know?  

 

Seems to have connections with limited run and NIS distribution, that’s all of his listings.  Huckster shipped it with media mail as well, which he has enough experience to know is mail fraud.  Can be opened and inspected, confiscated and disposed of, or buyer may be forced to pay the additional postage that he skipped out on.  He has thousands of sales, based on current listings, mostly boxed CEs that would appear to be US region, but are probably a mystery region.  Funnily enough though, only time he does mention region, is when the item is US region, probably since he knows that is a selling point for most, or the region code is visible in pictures, then he adds “this will work on all regions systems”.  Even then online functions and dlc may not be compatible though.

 

Guy knows what he is doing, and doesn’t care.  Needless to say, he has been nasty to deal with.  I saw discussion about potential scams and fraud with sealed Limited Run CEs, that most would never even know what was actually inside.  This is one thing to watch out for with NIS CEs I guess.

That's super shady. If you bought off eBay with PayPal then you should have no problem getting your money back, just gotta jump through the hoops. Hope you get it sorted.

Well if the listing was marked as ntsc region, then yes it would be an easy claim.  My guess is the shady seller just gave no region description at all.  Intentionally misleading.

 

And yeah, my recent nisa LE's have come in a generic outer box.  Saves on manufacturing with multiple platform releases and possibly avoids potential censorship issues.

Very disappointing to hear. Should just be upfront about that IMO and then people who wouldn't want it avoid the item and those who don't mind will still buy it and it ends up being less hassle for all. Best of luck, hopefully PayPal can help you get this right.

My amazon it joy cons came in and were in good condition despite the box being scrunched on one side.  The flap was bent down a bit, but not bad.   Shopto zelda steelbook was in a bubble mailer but was perfect.

It never really occured to me before but people could easily pull scams on LRG CEs by just gutting contents and placing it with similar weighted stuff inside and then re-seal it, given how cheap/low quality their seals on on CEs.

Holy shit, thought I was the only one. Pisses me off to no end when I want an NTSC version, go to the NTSC listing to order an NTSC version, and then get sent a "world edition" or whatever it is.

Yeah, his response has been “too bad, should have asked, no returns, you made a mistake, live and learn.”   It’s been fun hearing him whine about the few bucks he would be out on shipping though, because of “my” mistake.  What makes it even more ridiculous, is I did send him a message immediately with purchase.  I’ve only bought a few NIS CEs, but they have had a little blue or red “for home device / for hybrid device” sticker on the outside of the packaging.  I thought I could I see it laying in the background in one of his pictures.  Not that I really care about it, but went ahead and asked if he could include that if it was one of those stickers.  I added, “and this is US region, right?”  There was nothing other than the missing sticker to make me question anything about the listing, and that could be easily explained, but I still added that confirmation anyway.  Just to be safe.  Took him a few days to ship the item, he had plenty of time but never responded.  Claims that means I knew it wasn’t US region, and keeps saying I didn’t ask until after shipping, which is a lie…really bizarre.  I’m not too worried about getting my money back, but a little worried about my sanity and view of human kind.  Just kidding, know he’s just a bad apple, not gonna let him spoil the bunch.  Thanks all.

ebay will side with you, leaving out important details is considered against the seller. They stress to be very descriptive.

 

I do enjoy sticking it to sellers who are dishonest and/or greedy and try to get one over on you and watch them meltdown because they were slightly inconvenienced by a few bucks. They're such dbags.

 

The same thing goes for the sellers who put items for like $50-$100 dollars more than the going rate because they claim theirs is in "pristine/mint condition" and when you get it, it has a bunch of dings on it. It's like I'm not one to be a stickler for condition like that, but when you charge way over the going rate because you claim your item is pristine, and it isn't, and then you get mad at me for wanting either a partial refund or to return when I paid above market value for your item, don't mislead just to pocket some extra money. Be honest. They know damn well what they're doing. They just hope you won't notice or will be too lazy to return.

I also got a new tracking number for Scarlex Nexus and hopefully steelbook.  It's going UPS now and is on the move.  Prolly be next week before I get it.  That's a long wait for a pre-order of a standard edition.

File a SNAD claim. Enough of these will either get the seller blacklisted or forced to pay 5-10% more in FVFs. Or just buy from me instead, I only sell US region stuff lol.

 

The US region ones will all have the red sticker that says "for hybrid device" or blue sticker that says "for home device".

Sent it back. Amazon charges sellers for processing returns.

Yeah I had a seller clearly label their listing as the game being brand new, pictures show brand new. I get it and it's opened and dlc code was used. Messaged him about it and he told me to suck a d*ck. Filed a claim and he never responded to it and got refunded. It wasn't a super expensive game, but as you mention you gotta stick it to sellers that are dishonest.

This is not always the case. My YS IX switch LE has no stickers. It was purchased from NIS US store. Bottom of the box clearly says published by NIS America though
