Ninokuni: The Another World (Ghibli + Level 5 RPG) coming to PS3

Oh damn man. Sorry to hear that

The thing that kills me is they didn't ask me to update my info or anything, or for a different card. Makes me think they oversold what they had left.

Mine did the same thing. Between the time I ordered the game and now, my credit card expired and I got a new one.

I sent an email, but I guess no collector's edition for me.

EDIT: As if to cheer me up, my shipping notice for my Homestuck Kickstarter rewards arrived at the same time. So at least I'm getting something cool this week.

On the flip side you can actually play the game today.

No PS3 yet. Was planning on getting the white one that is out Sunday.

It's Ni no kuni day!

Doesn't look like I'll get to play until tomorrow, though. Taking a good friend out for smokes and brews since he just got back from a funeral. Ah, well.

Eek! That sucks about the transaction. I had a similar thing happen with Origin. I think they fixed the issue, but it messed up a Star Wars TOR pre-order and thus my account because I couldn't update the credit card to my new one. Sh** happens.

Now you can just get the regular version which we all know is the wiser option. All of us with the CE are gonna thumb through the book once, poke the plushy, and that'll be it. More stuff acquired trophy unlocked.

"poke the plushy"?

That's presumptuous.

How could you not?

We’re sorry but your order (redacted) for Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch – Wizard’s Edition could not be processed. The credit card on file could not be authorized for payment. As a result, your order has been cancelled.

Unfortunately due to the limited nature of this product, it is no longer available for purchase.

I'm so goddamn mad right now I don't know what to do.

edit: emailed their store support. I doubt they'll be able to do anything for me but I had to vent.

I could have sworn I was charged when I preordered back in July. Unfortunately their online store is useless for checking my order status. Ugh.

That's why I wish they would just release special editions like that to Amazon, or even Gamestop. Deal with companies who are used to taking pre-orders and handling limited inventory and processing lots of orders. I know they want their little extra cut for selling themselves, but usually the storefront and functions we are used to are crap, and there's limited customer service, if any, when issues arise... plus they charge outrageous amounts for shipping, always.

I would never have got the Limited Edition Disgaea 4 if it hadn't been available on Amazon. I love Atlus, but their store sucks, with all of the above reasons, especially the shipping.

Yeah, the payments get processed when you pre-order. BlindEvil just tried to order it when the new pre-orders opened back up again. So, somehow, something happened with the order.

You will have already paid. I'm curious if we'll get shipping notifications today. I hope so and would like to know that it's at least on the way.

Just picked up my copy while out for lunch. Sitting in the office. Waiting.

Aw crap, I realized that I sent the order to my old work address when I checked my order status just now. It was so long ago. I guess I'll be taking a long bus ride to go pick it up. I need to make a trip out there anyways.

Hey, if Namco doesn't resolve this for you, PM me. This is shipping to me soon and I'm not sure I really need / want the Wizard Edition. I wanted to push along the NinoStarter, but the closer the game comes to release the more I'm not sure when I actually want to add it to my "pile", given Persona 4, Fire Emblem, Dark Souls, etc. I'd be happy to sell you mine for exactly what I paid for it so you could get the Wizard Edition. You'd appreciate it more than me at this point.

No, no they do not. I ordered several months ago and got the email TODAY that my payment didn't go through. Presumably since I got a new card between now and then.

What!?! That's crazy. That's ridiculous. I guess I know not to order from them anymore. If they didn't allow me to use PayPal, my order probably won't go through either. I think I had a new card issued.

I guess I'll go to the store today during lunch and pick it up. I don't see any record of payment going through back then or today. Ah well, I'll save some moneys.

Yeah, they only charge once the actual item is shipped out.

Yeah, they are pretty crappy. My order shows that I placed it on Aug 9th, and that the item is sold out. No information about shipping to me. Nothing useful. Seriously just let Amazon have their cut and do it right.

I have to admit I will be pissed if I don't get my order. I ordered 4 months ago. I have written their help desk. Hopefully they will say something helpful.

I think his supposition about over-selling is correct. I've had this happen before with Amazon pre-orders, the publisher predicts they'll make X number, they tell the stores (even their own store) to pre-order X, but then they fail to meet that number. It sucks, I hope they do a 2nd run of the CE, they would probably get a double-dip from me.

If they oversold, then why'd they offer a second run recently?

I bought mine back when they first offered it. Telling me too bad is ridiculous.

The weird thing is that they charged me at the time. I'm confused. Did they charge you guys at the time?

What did is show up as? Bandi? Or Namco? I only ask so i can search my credit card on line to see if they have charged me yet.

I really thought they did. I checked my bank statement from July, though, and I didn't see that amount charged in July.

Okay, I just checked my PayPal history in July and 108.89 did go through to DigitalRiver US Inc. So, I guess I'm all good.

[size=8]I'm still tempted to go pick it up. [/size]

I don't remember seeing it. I'll check my bank statement after work.

From the store help page:

When will my credit card be charged?
For purchases of physical products, you won't be billed until your product is shipped. This includes any preordered or backordered products. If your items are shipped separately you will be billed each time a product is shipped.

How will the charge show up on my credit card?
The charge for your order will appear on your credit card as: "DRI*NamcoBandaiGames"

I haven't been charged at all since pre-ordering, but I used an actual credit card and not PayPal, so maybe that's the difference?

I went to look and they just charged me. Did they charge me twice? This is how it shows up on my bank statement.

DRI*NAMCOBANDAIGAMES ORDERFIND.COM MN

Looked back in the past and it appears they may have only authorized. I could have sworn they already charged me once.

I haven't been charged yet which makes me worried since on their site when I look at my order details it says "sold out". I guess I won't suffer too much, but I certainly won't order from anywhere accept Amazon from now on.
