Someone should complain to Atlus. See if they can do something especially they're the ones who said Bestbuy is one of the participating stores.

Oh and apparently it's only the US's branch. Cuz Canada gets it:

Watch them pull a "We said Bestbuy would get it but we meant only Bestbuy Canada would get it." Many jimmies would be rustled. Mine to an extent but I was sorta expecting not to get it.

This wouldn't make any sense as all. Every other retailer in the US is getting the art book yet only Bestbuy doesn't have it. It doesn't make sense when Atlus partnered with all of the retailers/Amazon to provide the bonus.

My amazon one weighs 1.2 pounds. My newegg package weighs .2 pounds.

Don't ask why I have 2 separate packages coming 2 different retailers :/ (forgot I preordered at newegg a few months ago)

I'll give them the benefit of the doubt. Perhaps the new layout doesn't allow them to show preorders (or they haven't found a way to do it to their liking). The KH 1.5 page is also missing the artbook preorder on the page but I know my store will be getting those since they have flyers in the PS3 aisle.

best buy really needs to say something about this but they are not answering this question. I really want to know even if one person got the artbook from best buy. I do hope people will post if they received it or not through best buy today. It's funny how a best buy rep says "should" instead of "will" receive it.

I just got my package from Best Buy for the Vita version- had it pre ordered for about 1.5 months, no artbook. Going to wait and see if they send it tomorrow, when I ordered other games with bonuses they came in 2 packages.

"Not anymore :P I'm going to try Amazon tonight, even if I won't get the game on release day, and wish for the best, then cancel my preorder at BB tomorrow."


just gotta say, amazon is worse than best buy and intentionally holds off all preorders at the lowest shipping cost until all higher priced shipping orders are met (more profit for them since they gouge for shipping). i have preodered games from amazon (at least twice this happened), waiting "forever" only to get an email 10 days later saying "sorry, demand was too high" so screw you for being a cheapskate.

if it is important to get a game at launch or a specific launch version, DO NOT TRUST AMAZON. i guess best buy can be added to the list of crappy merchants not to trust too. :(

I want to agree with you but then we'd BOTH be wrong...
