Extra Swag for Pre-Ordering Trails in the Sky

edited March 2011 in Latest Updates
More swag on top of a limited edition? Sounds too good to be true? Well, it is true, and XSEED is the one doing it. Better act now if you're getting the Trails in the Sky Limited Edition, becuase March 10 is just around the corner.

    Oh man... my bank transfer from Japan to the US might not go through until the 9th. That's cutting it a bit close! Recently, I've been checking out media related to this game, and everything seems to agree on one thing: it's awesome. I have decided on this above FFIV: Complete.

    Is the art book they are offering here the same one they were giving out for Ys Chronicles?
    And are any of the OSTs different from the ones that come with those games themselves?

    I'm trying to figure out what, if anything, is worth the money of a pre-order.

    The art book is actually the same one as was included in the Ys Seven limited edition, as are the OSTs for their respective limited edition game version.

    Thanks.

    The cynic in me says they are just getting rid of surplus 'bonus material' in the guise of a give away.

    Why not give away this stuff to their best customers?
    That is: people who preorder the limited edition of their latest game? (I think they make a little more money on the limited edition but not sure)

    Yeah, it's pretty obvious that they are giving out surplus bonus material. I don't think they're trying to trick anybody. They're just saying, "Hey, instead of throwing this out, we're throwing it in with your pre-order."

    You might be surprised to know that companies tend to have lots of leftover material from games they sell. Atlus USA used to let you buy it separately (for surprisingly cheap!) if you contacted them through the long gone shop. Not too long ago Atlus sent an e-mail to its mailing list letting us know old copies of Persona 2 that were laying around were available on Amazon, but there were only a few hundred copies. Apparently they had been sitting in a box in the office for almost a decade. I know from working at RPGamer that XSEED has boxes of leftover bonus material sitting around.

    I have no clue what they usually do with it all. Maybe it supplies employees with bad Christmas gifts to relatives for years? Maybe they give it away as E3 swag? You should be happy in this case they are giving leftovers to fans who support the company by pre-ordering. No need to see it through cynical eyes.
    The lesson here is that dreams inevitably lead to hideous implosions.

    And maybe TitS lovers didn't buy Ys and would like the bonuses? But yeah, this is extra stock, so why not share it?

    Pfft, at least you're not staff. Mac has been going on and on about his TitS for months now.
