I got an email this morning telling me that the Special Edition was available for pre-order. So I go to the product page, put it into my basket (at £37.99) and get all the way to the order confirm page, only for it to tell me that's it's no longer available. But when I go back to the product page, it says it's still available for pre-order, but I can't put it in my basket!
What's going on Amazon??

i think someone beat you to it. I managed to preorder mine by not sleeping at all. Around 4 AM, 3 copies emerged and lasted by 9 o'clock am. So try during the night maybe... I think you could get lucky.

Do they really have that few copies? :S

Yeah, it's all sold out almost. But people cancel preorders all the time so you might get lucky. My advice is if you can, stay up all night and hope a few copies pop up. That's how I preordered. There's always a few during the night which get sold in the morning.

Awesome, I just managed to order one :) Do you know if this is the same version as the GameStop one? I read a post by Sony that GameStop have a special pre-order bonus, but from what I can tell it's just the special edition.

Damn. I'm so glad I got mine when I did. £32.99 as well! :D

It is. The US Amazon doesn't offer the Special Edition, instead only Gamestop is. While in Europe, it doesn't matter that much so multiple retailers offer the Special Edition.

@B. Thompson: I live in hope that the price will drop again :P

@Vedran: Oh right I see. That's great :) cause Gamestop is selling it for £45...

To be honest, the price is okay to me. I'm more worried if on 11th Oct we get an email that our preorders are canceled because there were more orders than available copies since the game is constantly appearing then disappearing from the site. I hope that wont be the case :)

Edit : Oh wow , the price is 43 GBP now and there's over 30 copies available.

Hmm...I didn't get any notification that the price had dropped. My order is still for £37.99 :(

Vnvim: I don't think the order page will update with the new price even if the price has gone down after your order. You'll still get the lowest price when it ships / is billed. That is if the pre-order price guarantee applied to this product, I'd imagine it did. "Whenever you pre-order an item eligible for our Pre-order Price Guarantee, the price you pay will be the lowest price offered by Amazon.co.uk between the time you place your order up to and including the release date."

Yeah you got to get in early, if you think a game is going for a good price, don't wait. I got this special edition for £32.99, and Rayman on Wii U for £20, now it's £30. These price cuts do not last. And you usually have to wait 6-8 weeks for a official price cut.

What exactly IS going on with this? Does anyone know? I pre-ordered it back in August (when it was listed as available) and now for the past few weeks it's been listed as "unavailable" - the release date is in two days and there's still nothing to confirm it's been dispatched or even going to be dispatched for day of release. I'm tempted to order with another website but the price is decent on here and I'm worried as soon as I do it will suddenly become available again. So, does anyone know what is happening with this?

Generally Amazon usually upgrade my orders. I.e I ordered the regular version and was moved to SE. If you have this already as your order than nothing to worry about
