I wasn’t to excited for this or even had it on my radar, picked it up the day of release and wow is this a proper classic JRPG.

I actually preordered it because my local gamestop guy said, with this, you never know they may only send me like 5 copies.

Glad I did. It is a great game.

I canceled mine because I had a backlog on PS4. I may have to go digital if I get some free time because I am not waiting for a back order lol.

Hindsight is always 20 20...

I was talked into pre ordering on a post on the 8th. It was tooo late! I didn't get any notice from Amazon about being late. So I bought it digitally. Since I pre ordereded the wayfarer edition I did NOT cancel. I'm still going to get that special edition!!!

I couldn't find it at 3 different targets and a walmart.

Seems to be available to purchase on BestBuy online, and was available for pickup within an hour at all 25 stores close to me. Not saying you aren't having issues in your area, obviously, just letting people know other potential options still seem to be out there if looking to grab a physical copy now.

I couldn't find anywhere walmart they had 3. probably sold out by now. The game stop I went too Saturday said he could not find a single store that had it ANY EDITION within a 100 miles. But since I had already got the digital I did not cry. I think

I just bought it digital on a whim after barely knowing anything about it. As a whole, a pleasantly surprising experience about 10 hours in. I'm not surprised there's demand for it.
