    Looks good so far.
    Let's see...
    1. Too Big
    2. Too expensive (despite the absurd crap other companies put out for more money) Most I've spent for any other LE was the Xonic Xotic, and this will hopefully beat that.
    3. shipping box (nothing fancy)
    4. the fact that you translated it
    5. who needs coasters?
    6. shipping box again (why wasn't it in another box???))

    I guess you have to do what you can when you are peddling the games they do. Of course I'm sure that they think every game is "great".

    I'm intrigued.

    1. Doesn't make it much bigger at all.
    2. Unadvertised, so the cost was not out of buyer's pockets. It comes out of our profit as a gift to fans who supported the WE.
    3. No more fancy printed shipping boxes. People have proven they can't handle the reality of them.
    4. Localized. LOCALIZED!
    5. None of the stuff I'm talking about has been advertised, let alone shown.
    6. Shipping box is PLAIN as plain can be. Not falling for that "I now need a shipping box for my shipping box" trap again.

    This is only for the direct WEs. The VGP ones will get a (still cool) piece of this, but not the whole thing. That's reserved for the direct WE sales as a "thank you."

    A shame that many still fail to understand the difference.

    So, is the May 23 release date for real?

    It looks like I can save $25USD picking the 3 standard versions with a 1 month Prime subscription. But that'd get screwed if the release date changes.

    You can only get the discount for one copy I thought.

    Edit: I suppose if they are separate listings for each cover variant it would work.

    The ROM we received that was supposedly final was missing content when we tested it, so we have to have that fixed. Even if we get it back, tested and into Sony by the end of next week (which is herculean, and assumes the replacement ROM is right), I doubt the end of May will hold. I just don't have a better idea until we receive the fixed ROM and test it. We've told retailers and distributors, who may put up new placeholder dates, but know that we have NOT set a new date, and can't until we test the replacement ROM. Once it gets past us, it's very likely to get through Sony, so we're on the manufacture train at that point, and manufacture is a few weeks.

    Sucks, I know. We're disappointed, too, because it means ANOTHER playthrough to test the fixed ROM, and a delay for fans, but trust me, you did NOT want the version we got, and I prefer to release as clean a disc as possible instead of a mess that is day-one patched, because someday those patch servers will not be there and the mess on the disc is all people will have to judge the game by.

    Was waiting for a delay. But, rather that than a day 1 patch.
