So I am like predicting/hoping or/and maybe asking is there going to be another PS3 lightning edition system coming out?* I know if something does come out like that it will be a JP exclusive.* The first time around they gave us that beautiful all white with a pink lightning on it ps3.* Sold a matching controller separately that came with some extra stuff.* 2nd time around was a bold black ps3 with the design of the new lightning in pink.* With lightning returning and everything for the last time.* Maybe they'll go out with a big bang.* Selling a lightning limited edition*peripheral for the playstaion move would be cool if LR FF13 is move compatible.* I don't know, something like what ninja gaiden did?* Heck instead of a peripheral, they can make a whole lightning limited edition playstation move!!?

Anyways, I got the controller and the ps3 lightning edition ver 2.* Wouldn't mind adding to that.* Was also wondering what would everyone else think.

I could see the Japan branch doing something for game systems, but not the NA or EU one (though if there was a special edition controller packaged with the game or in a special edition, asdfghjkl I would drool-plus I need a new controller, lol).


As for it possibly being a Move-related thing, I dunno. Unless they plan to make LR a Move game (and I hope they don't), I can't seem them making it optionally compatible either. And if there's nothing Move-related, I couldn't see a Move-related peripheral either :/


EDIT: Also, if they were to enable Move on the PS3 version, then Kinect would somehow have to be enabled on the 360 version too, me thinks, so keep things fair between the ever on-going console wars.

I always wonder sometimes why they just make something*available for one region and not another.* Importing stuff is expensive...

Haha, yeah. Prices are enough to scare me away, even if it's stuff I want. Seriously, sometimes you're paying MORE than the cost of the item to import. Yikes X_x


But I think it's also a market thing. I don't know why, but Japan's market appears to be willing to dish out cash on more things than other regions. I recall seeing a pic of a massive line up to buy a limited edition yellow Pikachu Nintendo 3DS. If Nintendo did that in North America, I don't think there would be as much of a frenzy.


Sure, you got the rabid fans like me screaming "take my money!" when special editions actually get released in the same region, but the average gamer is more like "lol, no."


But seriously, if they announced a LR special edition that costs twice as much as just the game alone with a FULL artbook and OST, and PS3 Lightning controller, I will scream. Very loudly, I think *nods*

Speaking of 3ds, I'm very surprised square enix didn't give NA the limited edition kh 3ds.* But the protective case with the same design was a very nice alternative!

The DLC content would be nice, and maybe access to a*demo of another SE game, especially if it's Versus XIII, that'd be awsome!

Ok, so I have both a FFXIII and a FFXIII-2 product registration card on my desk, but I cannot for the life of me remember which one was for which game!! The have no indication of which game they came from, my profile is no use as it does not show the code I put in, and when I try to re-enter them to see which one is which, it does not work.

However, one has a grey box around the code on the bottom half, and the other has a red box. All other information is pretty much the same. So... comparing to your own product registration cards, which one is which??

Thank you in advance!

I'm just guessing here, but I'm betting because this is the last FFXIII game, there will be a Limited/Special Edition (since they did one for FFXIII-2).* I'm just hoping they'll have another soundtrack, DLC, and hopefully something really epic for it too. (like another artbook and maybe something we all wouldn't expect...)

Hey guys, so my first gen 60gb PS3 just YLOD, and really, aside from being*an extra Blu-Ray player as of late, I've been hoping it would hold out till FF13LR and a few other games dropping later this year. So being in no nessesary rush, I was wondering if there is any FF themed PS3s, and although I keep seeing Japanese systems, has there been and is there any reason to believe in a possibility of one coming out. Some brief looking before this I found plenty of them, but all the wrong region for me, needing one for NA. I just dont get why microsoft puts out all these awesome looking xboxs, but sony only does it overseas... Thanks!

I'm looking for the Square Enix** Sterling Silver Final Fantasy XIII Lightning's Necklace.
I want the SE made one, there are knock offs around online and with the store being down I can't seem to find it.

Ebay has one at 260$ which is a bit too steep for me


So if anyone knows another site or option I'd be happy to hear it :)










Thanks Guys!!!

I reccommend www.dv8cag.com/ (http://www.dv8cag.com/).* This is how I got my ps3 lightning controller and ps3 lightining ver 2 console out of the gate.* Or you could wait and hope the other import sites like playasia get some copies and they don't go out of stock.

I wonder how much domestic shipping is if they ship out of New York. I got a quote from whiterabbit for USD $310.33, but that doesn't include shipping costs because they need the item on hand to determine the shipping rate to the US (to determine weight I guess). So, could be as high as $350 or so.

US dollars but 389 NZD so a hell of a lot cheaper then the 460.


I noticed that so still trying to decide if it's worth it. I thought it came with a controller?


Where are you from? What trouble are you having?


I translated everything on the page and it says nothing about weight. Only thing i can suggest is getting 3 game cases, a cd case and trying to work out the weights at home.

I got a quote from whiterabbit for USD $310.33, but that doesn't include shipping costs because they need the item on hand to determine the shipping rate to the US (to determine weight I guess). So, could be as high as $350 or so.


I estimated the NCSX shipping and got this:

<table cellpadding="3" cellspacing="0">
<tbody>
<tr>
<td class="cart-subtotal-label">Subtotal:</td>
<td class="cart-subtotal">$359.90</td>
</tr>
<tr id="ctl00_pageContent_shippingRow">
<td class="cart-shipping-label">Shipping & Handling:</td>
<td class="cart-shipping">$13.38</td>
</tr>
<tr id="ctl00_pageContent_taxRow">
<td class="cart-tax-label">Estimated Tax:</td>
<td class="cart-tax">$0.00</td>
</tr>
<tr id="ctl00_pageContent_totalRow">
<td class="cart-total-label">Total:</td>
<td class="cart-total">$373.28</td>
</tr>
</tbody>
</table>








They quoted me $303.83. Price doesn't really bother me that much (would rather not pay 460.00) but i don't want to pay for it now.


When i ordered my Lightning Returns figure, they charged my card but refunded it.


Is the weight on the Square Enix site?




You're in New Zealand? Is that $303.83 NZD?


I am having trouble ordering the Lightning Figure from the American Square Enix site but I know I can save shipping costs if I order from there - hopefully it'll be fixed soon.


The box also has the Lightning figure if you didn't know?


I don't see a weight at the Square Enix site - even after translation. Might have to ask someone who can read Japanese!! ;)









US dollars but 389 NZD so a hell of a lot cheaper then the 460.


I noticed that so still trying to decide if it's worth it. I thought it came with a controller?


Where are you from? What trouble are you having?


I translated everything on the page and it says nothing about weight. Only thing i can suggest is getting 3 game cases, a cd case and trying to work out the weights at home.






Yeah, that is a big difference! do it!!!


I thought the controller was separate...if it is bundled that would be so much better! But I haven't found any websites that state where we can preorder it...


When I click 'preorder' it just says the item is out of stock and wasn't added to my cart. hahaha... try it!

I emailed back whiterabbit asking for an estimate shipping costs. We'll see what they respond with..

Actually, it's a $60 price increase over whiterabbitexpress. *That's enough money to justify paying up front, in my book. *I mean, for Ifrit's sake, we're talking $300 for a CE, even if it is a super-badass CE. *


A Lightning controller would be cool, but there's no way I'm spending money on a new PS3 controller. *My controllers and my PS3 were brand new last October, and if one craps out, I still have the other. *But, SE, please give us a FFXV CE worthy of the title. *Maybe you won't sell as many in the US as you will in Japan, but the only people who buy this stuff are the hardcore fans. *Maybe American fans aren't as hardcore as otaku, but give us a chance.

Does anyone know if the Steelbook is coming to North America and what the price difference is between all editions of the game? I know the regular edition is $60 US, and I've seen pictures of a Steelbook Edition and have read about an Ultimate Edition Box, but haven't seen any prices for them...

I clicked on the link and it looks like you might of missed out.


Christmas is coming up so the Box would be a great present and i wouldn't have to pay for it.

Looks like the Steelbook is a European exclusive, while the Lightning Ultimate Box is a Japanese exclusive. Our exclusive is a lousy Cloud Strike costume.

I reccommend www.dv8cag.com/ (http://www.dv8cag.com/).* This is how I got my ps3 lightning controller and ps3 lightining ver 2 console out of the gate.* Or you could wait and hope the other import sites like playasia get some copies and they don't go out of stock.









I can vouch for this website. He's been nothing but good to the CAG community.


Send them an email and you'll be happy with the price quotes and service.

Hey Belmevian! There will be no Limited/Collectors Edition of the game, but the majority of pre-orders come with great bonus goodies. You just need to check with your local retailers. Follow this link (http://www.lightningreturns.com/preorder) for more information :)

ah man this sucks, why does japan only get the lightning play-kai arts figurine included with the game? and i don't live in north america so where can i alternatively buy if from? can i order directly from play-kai arts?

I saw that the EU gets a steelbook

JP has a proper bundle



Seems that NA gets the least in form of a dlc costume?


If there was more to be offered I think preorders would jump up


Take my money already NA

Here you are (http://store.jp.square-enix.com/detail/MFF130018?).
You can still import it directly from Japan. Ask White Rabbit Express (http://whiterabbitexpress.com/) for help, that's what I usually do.

I've been saving up money for awhile now so I could eventually get FFXIII Jewelery, Namely, the L'cie Pendant and two of the Snow/Serah engagement pendants. I was so excited when I saw it show up again at the store a while back. But, now it's gone again...yet...the item is still there. You just can't access it from the store directly or buy it. Nor does it say it is out of stock.

Oh, that one. "Winter" might last until April 1, according to the Square Enix fiscal year. However, I would guess that this pendant will be released sometime around the release of the game itself, that is: next month.

Where can I buy some official LRFFXIII merch that's NOT from the horrible SE/DR store? I couldn't even try to preorder the LRFFXIII CE because of stupid "trade sanctions" that DR are hiding behind.

Despite me disliking LRFFXIII, I'd like to buy some merchandise; posters, figurines, steelbooks, artbooks, etc. I'm not talking about the JP ultimate edition, OST, or the Kai playarts statuette or things on ebay. I'd really like a snow poster though (CGI render looks a lot like Troy baker <3)

Any info would be appreciated.

Amazon has awesome stuff. Not too much for LR, yet. But I'm sure they will eventually. They have scrolls amd posters with most of em made out of some nice material. Some kind of fabric. I bought a Lightning one and a Tomb Raider one last year. I might drop a pic of em.

They have one (a scroll) with the Cloud costume, but her face looks likes it's kinda squished from top to bottom, or else ida got that one real quick, hahah. Shame though.

Try typing 'Final Fantasy Lightning/snow poster' or 'final fantasy xiii poster' to get other results too that's not necessarily Lightning Returns stuff, if you just want something of Lightning and or Snow. Though they don't have much for Snow.

11th Mar 2014, 05:38
Well. After looking again, it seems most of the stuff from XIII and XIII-2 is gone now, and there's not much LR stuff, but some though. The mouse pad/table mats are pretty huge though, and could still put it on your wall or wherever. I know you like Snow, and they have one of him in his LR outfit. Just a matter if you like the pic or not. Even though it's not necessarily a poster, it's still prety big. You can scroll through the pics and see how big it is next to a keyboard
http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00EN3FBCC/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?qid=1394514050&sr=8-3

There's this wall scroll. Nice size too, bout 40x28 inches.
http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B003OQVRJA/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?qid=1394515304&sr=8-1

Good luck on your search for something. I'd keep checking back with Amazon err once in a while.

ValhallaChaos

Thanks for the info and links, appreciate it. I kinda wish it wasn't amazon though; to (standard) ship to my country costs an arm and a leg. 90% of the time the shipping fee costs more than the actual item I buy. I'll browse amazon nonetheless. BTW that link you provided: that is one gigantic mousepad.

Do you mind taking a pic of the lightning wall scroll you have? I saw a LRFFXIII one on eBay a few days ago (most likely someone has bought it by now) though the seller was asking $50 for it, postage not included. Yeah, I really like snow (especially the LRFFXIII version of him), but my fondness for him is mainly because Troy baker's his VA. His character isn't all that special, not to me anyway.

Sure. The ones i got are fabric posters that i put in some cheap frames.. They were only $20-25, can't remember, and they're 37x23inches. Really nice size. They were also ahipped from China. Shipping was free too, hella lucky with that. So that one on Ebay for $50 sounds kinda steep. The Lightning one I'm about to post right now is only $13.98, for the exact same one o_O Here's da link, just in case. http://www.amazon.com/Fantasy-Poster-Printing-38inch-24inch/dp/B00IT56UY8/ref=sr_1_115?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1394648266&sr=1-115&keywords=final+fantasy+xiii+poster

Sucks shipping cost so much for you. The ones available on Amazon right now are $11.50 for shipping for me. And it's looking like almost all of the FF 13 fabric posters n scrolls are buy one get one free too, right now. I'm not sure where they ahip from, but I'm guessing from over seas. Maybe that might bump the price of shipping down for you. Or is it because of your countries policy on getting things from other countries is why the price is high and not because of the distance..?

EDIT* The wall scrolls are made out of the same stuff and have the same quality of print. They just have those hanger things on the end instead of not having them. And just to give ya an idea, it says cloth, but it's like a mix between cloth and paper. It'll still crease just as easy as paper if you fold it or anything like that. But the material feels like a paper towel, and is about as thick. That's the best thing I can compare it to, lol.

EDIT*#2 I also take back what I said about the not having XIII and XIII-2 stuff much anymore on there. It seems about the same from what I remember. Good amount to choose from.
