Spotted by blacksark over in the OT for the game. Hopefully we'll see a console release as well but I'll take what I can get. Seems to include a Steelbook, the game's soundtrack, postcards, game manual and a poster.

Going off that same listing Ori is also getting a regular physical print on PC from Nordic Games as well.

I doubt we will see a console release since the minimum print run for the XBO is pretty high.

Nordic Games? Why is Microsoft not involved?

Seems like a case of Microsoft giving them publishing duty. It's something that MS has allowed plenty of times before with various franchises. Examples are:

Blue Dragon
Crimson Skies mobile
Ninety Nine Nights 2

Steam or Windows 10 store key though?

Hopefully neither or at least have the disc have a DRM free version of the game on it in addition to a code. Don't know if that would fly with MS after the Shadowrun stuff though; took work from Harebrained Schemes to get MS to approve DRM free versions of the game to be made available.

Oh damn, that looks incredible. If there is an Xbox version of this I will probably triple dip.

I preordered it and today I received a delivery date confirmation from Amazon. Hoewever when trying to check the item it gives me a 404 error. Did they make a mistake or is the problem on my side?

That's weird. Yeah, I got the delivery date email too.
They took down the listing. What was the price?
30 clams. I wonder why it's down.
Maybe they were limited as eff... (this is a joke)

Aww, I wanted to pre-order. I guess it went up too early since it was never even announced.

That's not bad. It'd be $24 after Prime discount.

It'd be great if it came with a DRM free copy as well as a Steam code. If it's just a Steam code, it would just become a Steelbook for the soundtrack.

I paid good money for this Dynex!

If it's DRM-free, I'll absolutely buy that. Gladly. If it's just a Steam activation, forget it.

That is a lovely looking steelbook. I'll pick this up digitally eventually, I've heard too many good things not to. Isn't it a Metroidvania style game?

Yeah, there was a 6 dollar Prime discount, sales tax and shipping bumped it back up to 24 and change for me. I think the shipping charge is waived when they actually send it out. I'm not sure.

Has anyone's pre-order shipped yet?

There seems to be some kind of delay on the Limited Edition. My tracking says:

"Delivery date pending
You'll get an email as soon as we can provide you with a delivery estimate."

EDIT: Since poster below is talking about GBP, I should mention I'm talking about in the US here for my copy.

Got mine in today! =D

Even though I already own it and have just completed the DE on hard mode I still couldn't pass it up at £20.

Very pretty and I don't own the soundtrack yet.

Sorry to bump this, but I just got an email earlier tonight which told me that:

Your new estimated delivery date is: Thursday, June 30, 2016 - Thursday, July 7, 2016

which is strange that it gives me a range since it still says "One Day Prime shipping."
Anyone else get this, or has everyone already gotten theirs?

I'm just gonna say... I'm a little jelly you already got yours.

Mine arrived today. Bought from Play Asia.

Don't quite understand how it all came together .... (Xbox One version so is US only?) but it left Hong Kong on Wednesday, then visited Dubai and Germany before hitting the UK today.

Very impressed with UPS delivery!
