Your first paragraph almost perfectly describes me as well. More excited for this release than any other game so far this generation - it's the game that got me to buy a PS4 Pro in preparation last year. And like you it's the third time I'll have bought it. My only concern is whether the special edition will actually release in Europe (it's listed on Amazon but only as a 'we'll email you when this item is available' listing; I really hope it does.

Regarding sales I've been pleasantly surprised by the pre-order data we've been getting (not just US, but in Europe as well), but it's notoriously unreliable data, especially when it comes to games of Japanese origin, which our data seems to consistently over-estimate. The good news is that there's a constant flow of new orders - not just one big surge - which bodes well.

I hope it does well. A fairly sparse Feb will help, and it's being given a bigger push at retailers than I would've expected for a release of this type.

Hey Machina! I love reading when others also appreciate this game as much as I do. I have noticed that those who do consider it pretty much the gaming experience of their life. It changed them in ways because of how deep it is. There's just something so ethereal and majestic about it I can't even put into proper words (or maybe I kinda just did? lol). It's pure escapism and the perfect game for ME. Not too long, not too complex, just right - I can jump in and just play whenever I feel like it, really, and always get enjoyment out of it. I must have just popped in the game just to beat the first colossus hundreds of times. With the updated look and on a console like the PS4, well...geez I'm stoked!

Also, I just HATE double-posting but after I read what you wrote I felt I had to help out a fellow fan just like a fellow fan helped ME out over at gamefaqs. The special edition is NOWHERE to be found outside of the US. Canada isn't even getting it (where I'm from) and I looked and checked literally EVERYWHERE. So here man, if you're like me and I truly believe you are, then you won't mind paying $90CAN ($70US) for the sure to be beautiful special edition right HERE:

:D I figure I gotta return the favour now. I placed a pre-order on this quicker than you can say Colossus lol. The only thing is, the price is acceptable but the DAMN shipping - $23 express. And I NEED this ASAP so it was an obvious decision.

 

Damn, that's a shame. I may have to order from them then. The price is very reasonable but I was hoping to play it day one, and that kinda kills those hopes :(

Eh, you may have to wait 3 or so extra days with express (I doubt longer than a week from what I heard about people ordering from there). I can live with that if it means I get the SE.



Oops, didn't realize poll was FW, voted over 500k I'm expecting a little under a million lifetime.
