Possible 'The Last Story' Steelbook?

 

XSEEDGames annouced that ALL first print copies, will come with a 44-page softcover art book and a custom outer box. So it doesn't matter who consumers purchase from, everyone gets the same bonus. However, if FutureShop offers a steelbook, the steelbook may get consumers to purchase from FutureShop, and not from the competitors.

 

This is what the Europeans got:

Would of loved a steelbook for The Lasy Story but I don't think its possible since its already so close to release date and so far nothing about it.

Usually they will announce it a month early so people can pre-order.

Re: Possible 'The Last Story' Steelbook?

Hi everyone,

 

Sadly, we will not have an exclusive steelbook for The Last Story :smileysad: We tried to make it happen but due to lead times, and a few other factors we weren't able to.

 

Now, what I can say is that this year we will have about twice as many steelbooks as last year. A whole bunch will be announced over the next coming week.

 

Thanks,

Contributor

Edit:

 

I forgot to ask, is FutureShop going to have the soundtrack as a pre-order bonus too?

I'd also like to know if it comes with the CD - i may switch my pre-order if it doesn't.

Re: Possible 'The Last Story' Steelbook?

I emailed XSEEDgames if the bonus soundtrack is limited to the 3 retailers mentioned in the IGN article, they replied that the 3 retailers are just a sample of retailers and other retailers will get the preorder bonus. And said that we should ask other retailers directly if they will carry the soundtrack.

Less than 10 days left.
Is it safe to say Future Shop won't have the bonus soundtrack sample?
