Weird, my amazon pre order (steelbook edition) isn't cancelled and no email. Placed a backup order on best buy but to be honest I don't really care, extra steelbook is no big deal in my book and I am not that much into persona that I want the CE.
The plush edition is still available for pre order on best buy for me, but not for shipping just store pickup.
Well, I'm on the west coast if it is an issue with their Reno distribution plant.
edit: And it looks like my preorder was placed in early November, so maybe that has something to do with why I was one of the people to get the cancellation emails first? Maybe they do have some stock, but only enough to go to the people who preordered right when the game hit Amazon?
Hmm thinking the Premium Edition will be hard to find down the line even though Persona is super niche. I went ahead a preordered it on BestBuy figuring it would probably be cool to have the plush and bag.
Newegg, Walmart, Target, Bestbuy also still have it up
Had my pre-order for the TYH edition in since June. I really hope it doesn't get cancelled. It's like,the game I've been waiting for. I've been waiting ever since they announced a 2014 (ha) release, please don't do this to me Atlus.
Tbh it seems like a lie, or a miscommunication. They likely took too many orders and are canceling them. Amazon customer service reps aren't exactly reliable sources of information, they will tell you an item will arrive on time even if it hasn't shipped yet and you were supposed to already get it.
Only thing I can think that can be defective is the Blu-Ray's. It's not as uncommon as one might think. If my guess is right, it might be a first for videogames. This all conjecture on my part of course.
