Not many pre-order offers for this quirky masterpiece from Platinum Games. (PS4 version currently has a 90% on Metacritic). Although unconfirmed the game is likely to use Denuvo copy protection.

The Day One edition includes several cosmetic items:
- Valve Character Accessory
- Cardboard Pod Skin
- Retro Grey Pod Skin
- Retro Red Pod Skin
- Grimoire Weiss Pod
- Machine Mask Accessory

If you're after something a bit different I highly recommend taking a look at this one.

Grrrr, Play-Asia had this Steam pre-order for $31 last week but I held out for PS4 reviews and now it's out of stock!

Hot price, now we know it's a good game.
Yoko Taro is a genius, all he needed was a good team to make the gameplay itself solid. The game is really getting the reviews it deserves.
Are there possibilities that CDkeys could sell it even cheaper in the following days? £32 seems like a bargain!

I guess it's possible, though CDKeys usually increase their prices as the release date approaches (currently £36.56 with FB code). Perhaps they haven't secured their supply of keys yet and they're playing it safe?

It's currently unclear whether they are offering the Day One edition.
cold. not Zelda.
Does anyone know what DRM this game will use?

It's a Steam key but published by Square Enix so probably Denuvo (Tomb Raider, Deus Ex, Hitman & Just Cause 3 all used it).

They've said nothing concrete, but its heavily hinted they're using Denuvo by stuff they've said in interviews.
Heat. This looks amazing.
Why the hell does this translate to 49.29 euros
Don't forget Quidco. It tracks at £1.64 (5% new customers), 2% for existing. Making this deal after cashback £31.15 (new customers) and GMG are decent trackers/payers I believe...

Only thing I will say is GMG are an authorised re-seller so the developer will certainly get a better cut buying from them than CDkeys who's keys likely come from Russia/Brazil etc etc. So for the sake of a pound or two consider buying from GMG.
Hold your horses people; we don't know how well will the Port will run. God knows there have been a few **** ports the last few months.

Tough call... The PS4 version would have trade/resale value.
Performance wise the standard PS4 runs it at 900p and has some missing effects, the Pro plays at 1080p though neither can sustain 60fps. Probably worth waiting a week to see how well the PC version runs on various AMD/Nvidia cards.

I thought it did manage 60fps? Is this just a selling thing and it actually doesn't?
It's the first I have heard of it not running at 60fps
loved the PS4 demo. It's Deffo on my to play list.

Both target 60fps but there are frame rate drops, Digital Foundry compared the two:

Hmm, not too bad considering but thanks.
AAH I wish the PC version was out at the same time so I could decide which to buy but with PC stuff I am not risking buying until I've heard people comment on it. Hopefully it's not a bad port

Just received my key from Greenman
Apparently the preload is around 26gb.

Yeah, I just sent a support ticket to GMG hopefully it gets sorted out before the price increases.
