    Yeah, thanks very much for that! Got an order in for one as well as both the new amiibos! Not had good experiences recently with the Nintendo UK Store but there's no way I'm going to miss out on this so ordered with them anyway.

    Got my order in for the LE and Amiibo. :)

    Might cancel the Amiibo as I don't really collect them to be honest, I only have a Zelda Guardian in fact. They do look nice though, and I was temporarily overtaken by consumerism.

    I'm just sick to death of scalpers, and sick to death of Nintendo never releasing enough stock of anything. It's turning me off of them.

    Am I reading the product description right? You get a standard game case, the lovely cartridge case, but a download code for the game? 2 cases, 0 cartridges?

    The download code is for an older game.

    No, the download code is for a copy of the original GameBoy game.

    I'm tempted by the new Samus amiibo - I only have five, two of which are Samus ones - but with this and Destiny 2 coming out so close to one another, I'll have to leave it, I think :(

    Ah, I'm an idiot. Ta!

    Ordered, along with that crouching Samus Amiibo. My first one. I hope it doesn't awaken anything in me.

    Ordered the wobbly Metroid amiibo as well. Already got the Smash ZSS amiibo.

    Was getting errors trying to order for some reason despite all my details being correct. Reloaded the page and the legacy edition is already out of stock.

    Wow, the Samus and Metroid Amiibos are gone too.

    Nintendo really do seem to find making money to be slightly grubby, and make every effort to avoid doing so.

    Managed to get the LE and Metroid preordered.

    I would love to know the actual totals orders for keeps and for sell ons...

    I just ordered the standard game with a t-shirt - plus cheaper than Amazon at the moment too.

    Can't wait - really love Metroid games. Surprised they haven't done a 2.5d sooner.

    Bah. Missed out yesterday on Game's preorders (shockingly they didn't overcharge) due to them seemingly having broken my account. Then missed today's Nintendo store one due to having to go to an unintended school meeting. Sighs. Ah well, saved me 60 quid for a set with a game that won't work on my 3DS anyway (I have a US system so tied in for this generation)

    Will probably wait for game to get a sale price now (US) as the US LE is a waste of time.

    Glad I missed this thread, saved me from buying more tat I don't need.

    Yeah. As far as I'm concerned, the touts and Nintendo can all go and fuck themselves. I checked my emails about an hour after the email from the Nintendo Store had gone out. Needless to say, I'd missed the damned thing. Looks as if the limited edition sold out in about ten minutes or so. What the fuck is up with Nintendo? We all know about the Mini NES fiasco, and of course the recent Mini SNES fiasco. But now with the Samus Returns limited edition, Nintendo must have known it would be very popular, and yet they produced so few that it sold out in a matter of minutes. Cupid stunts.

    And the touts on ebay can fuck off. The cheapest copy of Samus Returns limited edition that I found is in the region of 160. Er, no, I don't think so. Not at that price. The only thing in the limited edition I was interested in (apart from the game itself) was the soundtrack CD. But paying well over 100 for a CD? Nope. Not going to happen. Screw you, touts, and your outrageous prices.

    I expect the tracks on the CD will end up available online to download illegally. I have no qualms about downloading Metroid soundtrack music illegally. I already own the legitimate CD soundtrack release of Metroid Prime/Fusion, and so illegally downloading other Metroid music doesn't concern me.

    Game seemed to have it in stock for a while yesterday but they screwed my account up so I missed up. Was definitely up for several hours but I agree that Nintendo need to just automatically fulfill more inventory for out of stock LE stuff so scalpers suffer. Thankfully the only one where it mattered to the game was FE Fates which I managed to get.

    I'll be happy with just a standard edition, myself. That should be freely available at launch, but I wonder if it'll become harder to find a few years from now.

    I'm glad I missed out on the legacy edition actually. The only stuff from Nintendo that I actually display is the Luigi's Mansion and Nintendo character dioramas.

    In fact, I'm going to wait for reviews to see how the game turns out. I doubt it'll be bad but it might not be amazing.

    It's a long shot but if anyone has multiple pre orders that they no longer need, could you let me know as I've missed all the allocations and the legacy edition really itches my consumerism button.

    Cheers!

    Did anyone else who ordered through Nintendo automatically get some fire emblem stickers added to their order? I couldn't see any way to take them out of my basket so just left them.

    Nintendo for some reason have decided to post me the stickers. On their own. Royal Mail tracked.

    :confused:
