    I noticed my existing preorder also dropped to latest price!

    •  

      Yep that preorder price guarantee works nicely. I figured we might see some better prices and amazon match it just before launch.

    Well my order isn't updated yet, just posting my order status so others are aware(in case anyone else asks) I Will post or edit if this changes. Thanks OP for the post!
    Edit: Correction, Now has been updated! that was fast :)

    The Dual Pack with Steelcase is now $129.10 for Prime also :)

  •  

    Argh ok I'll bite lol.

    Which version to get?? My younger self says buy both but reality is I won't have time so just want to experience the story.

  •  

    What's the go with cancelling an existing pre-order and doing it again on this offer?

  •  

    Hmm not sure if it is sold out but the Dual pack seems unavailable.

    how much is the cashback on this

  • +1 vote

    Thanks! I usually always buy it from BigW but I think I will use the $5 pre-order bonus to pay for my Amazon Prime, to get expedited delivery, and hopefully get it a day early :D

      My copy of death stranding arrived the Monday after release. so don't count on release day delivery with amazon.

      • +1 vote

        Mine too. All through the pre-order period it stated release date delivery, but the moment it was actually sent and handed off to Australia Post it became Monday the 11th.

      •  

        what ?? I've been reading comments that people are getting certain pre-orders early. Did you guys choose the expedited delivery or just standard delivery ? Going to be very disappointed but I have a full weekend anyway, so Monday isn't too bad.

        • +1 vote

          Expedited with release day delivery, but they didn't send it out until Thursday afternoon and from NSW whereas i'm in VIC. The customer service rep said it was delayed due to there being "too many orders" and Aus post couldn't handle them all at once or something.

          •  

            @acidantics: Thanks for the heads up. Pokemon is a very big game, hope they send it out today :'(

              @sleet: Just spoke to Live Chat and received ;

              I have checked the tracking and both orders are planned to ship on Wednesday, 13 November 2019 and you will receive the orders by Friday, 15 November 2019.

                @GreatZeroTaste: Legend! Thanks heaps for that update

              • +1 vote

                @GreatZeroTaste: I have pre ordered every single major switch release from Amazon since they started.

                All have arrived release day except one, which is always annoying as switch games release on a Friday.

                They all say shipping on a Wednesday, as prime is meant to offer 2 day shipping.

                But what had always happened is they post on Thursday (sometimes quite late in the evening) via express and arrives on Friday.

        •  

          Apparently Amazon had stock issues with Death Stranding. My copy wasn't shipped until Friday and arrived yesterday. Others had their copy Friday morning.

        •  

          They have screwed me with mine. Now arriving Tuesday.

      •  

        I got my copy on release. NSW to QLD in 1 day. I guess it depends on Australia Post.

      I heard the same and pre-ordered Luigi's Mansion 3 via Amazon.

      It arrived on launch day in the afternoon. Knowing that, I would have popped by BigW in the morning to buy it instead

      •  

        Do all your other Aus Post packages arrive in the afternoon? Our guy delivers first thing in the morning (guess we're early on his route), so good chance for 8-9 am delivery here!

        •  

          Not sure, I dont normally pay attention to when stuff arrives lol

          Thought it'd come via courier like most amazon packages

  •  

    I literally bought this on Sunday for $63 with amazon using that preorder $5 discount.
    Edit: order seems to be updated to $57 :)

  •  

    Which one guys? Choose for me….I have no idea

  •  

    I pre-ordered with JB hifi, at $69… anyone know if you can negotiate with them to split the difference when you go and collect?

    I wonder if i can cancel my order and re-order with Amazon?

    • +4 votes

      ive never been able to price match amazon at jb.. or eb … my local eb is the worst … never buying anything there again.

    • +1 vote

      JB won't do it…unless you're lucky.

      My local never does anything - I don't shop there anymore.

      • +1 vote

        I've sent them an email. Given it was an online click and collect order, you can cancel it! So i've asked them if they can refund the difference, otherwise they can refund me the lot… will see what they go with!

    • +1 vote

      JB has dropped their price to $62 and mention you'll always pay the dropped price on release. So you're fine to stay if you're happy with $62.

  • +1 vote

    Yes! :D from, 68 to 62.10

  •  

    Ohh nice work Amazon - $57.10 for Pokémon.

    I wonder when they'll ship it.

    • +2 votes

      Apparently it ships so it arrives the day it's released

      • +3 votes

        I wouldn't guarantee it.
        My Death Stranding order did not get delivered on release day. Amazon did let me cancel the order however, so I just went and picked it up from JB Hifi because I wanted to play that night.
        I've had 4-5 other pre-orders from Amazon arrive on release day though.

  •  

    My price is not updated when I go to order details.

    I also ordered BOTW with it which has already been delivered. Not sure if that has anything to do with it.

    • +2 votes

      Mine hasn't been updated either. Live chat claimed all orders of the game had no pre-order price guarantee which i promptly sent her the link to this page. She then changed her tone to say that the price should update after a while, otherwise i can contact them again for refunding the difference.

    Pre-ordered at Harvey Norman with 10% off today for $61.80…Should've waited for this one but HN not bad already

    • +1 vote

      good luck getting it on release … i'd advise to call them… last time they didnt even bother to call and then when i called they didnt even have stock.

      •  

        Yup, this happened to me, I don't pre-order with HN anymore.

      •  

        Oh thanks! First time pre-ordering with HN… Thankfully this is a christmas gift that I wanted to get in early while prices are still low. Will call them once released and fingers crossed!

    I ordered this when Shopback had the 12% cash back on Amazon.
    Anyone know if the cash back will reduce to reflect the lower price, if it will lose tracking and not pay out at all or what might happen?

    •  

      I am in the same boat, I think it will be ok.
      Additionally I paid with an Amazon gift card (bought at 5% discount from Aust Post) - now order shows a "-$5.90" balance, not sure what that will now do to things however, hopefully it goes back on the gift card.

  •  

    Is 62.10 big w's release day price? If so I'll pick it up from them

    •  

      It's part of Big W's Click Frenzy Deals, I would definitely purchase now before the deal ends. It will go back to it's original price.

  •  

    Just wondering what will happen to cashback. Will it still go through after the price drop?

  •  

    Order total
    $-5.90

    Amazon order total above, signifies I'm getting a refund I guess? Hahaa

    •  

      payment via credit card or gift card?

      •  

        Gift card!

        •  

          Unlike credit card, the gift card balance is deducted instantly when you ordered. This means when the price dropped by 5.90 it needed to refund difference back to your gift card balance.

        •  

          -$5.90 me too - also via gift card. Hopefully goes back to gift card rather than amazon credit (preventing future cashback when redeeming).

    How are the Pokemon games these days? I still remember the good old days of Pokemon Yellow and the like on the Gameboy.

      You wont get that same feel.
      The new Pokemon designs are lackluster.

      The games however do have better graphics etc.

    • +6 votes

      These newer gen Pokemon games are more "casual" friendly in terms of difficulty. There are too many tools now that make the game easier which I think takes a bit away from that old school Pokemon experience. Other than that and the graphics, the core gameplay is mostly the same.

      •  

        The exp share is so annoying! Takes away the need to try different pokemon.

        •  

          Agreed, the buffed Exp Share is the worst thing they've done as it encourages such a boring play style. Granted you don't have to use it, but just the fact it's there is saddening :(

      • +3 votes

        I do agree they've made it so much easier but being an adult now, I don't prioritise much time for games so this short-cut is well received by me.

        •  

          I can definitely understand this and have nothing against it. I just wish they would actually put in difficulty options like every other modern game.

    • +1 vote

      The music isn't as memorable in the new games. And the lack of voice overs with rhse graphics is jarring.

    •  

      with all the leaks going on regarding the games, people are not looking forward to this one as much

    • +1 vote

      You should get Let's Go.
      It's a direct remake of Yellow.

    •  

      I played Pokemon Blue as a kit - Purchased a 3DS XL for the first pokemon game on that, I really enjoyed it.

      Don't currently own a switch but seriously contemplating buying one just for this release, I mean they are all really the same…just tarted up.

      This post will contain spoilers, however I consider them more of a PSA than spoilers personally.

      In order to avoid upsetting anyone, the rest of the post will be a screenshot, so that those who do not want to know anything can avoid information about the games.

      Edit: And for what it is worth, I only covered a small portion of the issues with this game.
