I switched my reserve of FFIII over to PoR and it appears as though GS's price for PoR is indeed $34.99. (good; I'm sure I can get FFIII cheaper than the $39.99 they advertised it at!!)

Question for anyone who ordered right when the extra gift pack became available (like the 15th or 16th); has your order status of the gift pack been backordered since you ordered?

To ALL CANADIAN out there, this deal is also avaliable at Eb games canada.
But, you have to do it B&M because EB doesn't have a website here. For the first time ever, the price for games at eb CANADA are the same as EB USA. Look at recent releases. Pokemon mystery dungeon, starfox command, mario vs DK 2, are ALL 34.99. This game, however is 39.99, same as the price advertised on the site. The bonus gift pack is advertised in the circular with Need for speed carbon as the cover. Check it out if you dont believe me. Also, I preorded at the coquitlam centre eb games and i'm the first person on the list. Noone knows about this deal. I preorder on oct/16/06.

Hi, I've never pre-ordered at Gamestop before. Do they charge you instantly or after they shipped the order?

I just pre ordered the game, something I've never done before. I don't believe in spending full price for games, but for this I'll make an exception. The funny thing is I don't even own a DS... yet.

I'm the same way. But with this, I've sealed my fate. I own a bunch of DS games and I've just been mooching off my two pals with DSes for playtime, but I'll get PoR right before winter break, so I'll NEED my own DS to play it. Here's hoping Black Friday kicks out an awesome DSLite deal.

Do you have the receipt? It may be YMMV, but when I tried to exchange a copy of Nanobreaker without a receipt they said they'd have to treat it as used and give me $3. Screw that.
You can try it, but if they offer you next-to-nothing just ebay it.

DQ Heroes gets $16 right now, $17.60 if you put it towards a preorder. Actually, $19.36 with the Edge card.

does this apply to in-store pre-orders? i went into GameStop two weeks ago to pre-order it. when i asked the manager yesterday about it, he said my pre-order mentioned nothing about a bonus, and that there was no separate sku listed for a pre-order bonus version. also, the price listed was still $35.00.

Wow, that guy's a winner. Preorder bonuses don't have an SKU, they're just freebies that get shipped to the store for them to throw at you along with the game. I don't really recall any preorder bonuses on the website not applying to stores, unless there were any that were marked as "Online Only" that I'm forgetting.

I had no trouble resisting after noticing that they're selling it for $39.99, and they're charging me tax. Added 3 days shipping. That would cost about 50 bucs...too rich for a DS game.

$42 for a DS game... Ouch I had it pre-ordered somewhere else for $27. I'm such a sucker.

I finally caved... ordered it online for $40+tax... and I dont even have a DS!

I might go pre-order another copy in store just to see if I can manage to save $5.

Any word on rather this is online only or not?

Thanks OP for this awesome info.

The wax seal is an awesome touch... crap, I might have to order two just so I can leave one sealed. I'm really glad I ordered this before the hype machine went into overdrive, though. This is a really nice "thank you" from Konami to all of the Castlevania fans... they could have easily charged an extra $25 with an LE version... after all, it's not like they actually have to give anything away to get people to buy a Castlevania game.

Just use "FREESHIPALL" or "SAVER." One of those, I forgot which, gave me free shipping from GameStop.

FREESHIPALL = GameStop
SAVER = EB Games

SEeing the coupons pselled otu again just reminds me how much I miss the old CAG15 + SAVER + Edge Card for 25% used game + free shipping. :(

Seconded to an amazing degree. Those were the days.

Edit: Looking at that large image from IGN...does that stylus remind anyone else of those extendable ones?

The picture isn't new, but some of the info is.

"The wax-sealed package will feature a 48-page artbook detailing every game in the Castlevania series, a 20th anniversary soundtrack CD that covers the best music of the series, a timeline poster detailing key events and characters in the Castlevania series, a special edition DS Lite Castlevania stylus that extends for comfort, as well as a special game case that allows gamers to keep both Castlevania DS games close in their possession."

Man, whenever I typed in SAVER I thought the same thing. I actually felt a pang of sadness at not having CAG15 + SAVER + Edge Card for 25% used game + free shipping anymore. Honestly I was doing atleast a grand a year at that site if not 2 grand. But hey, guess they dont want my bussines.
