Gutted I had missed out on thegamecollection's preorder for Xenoblade Chronicles, but found this and think its nearly as good (via cashback sites) - though without the keyring.

Hope it helps )

Good price, but I was hoping to find a copy around this price that comes with the keychain too. I'm gutted I missed out on TGC one as well since it was cheaper + came with both a keychain and a poster.
What was the gamecollection one?

I posted a deal from the moment you could pre order for roughly just over £1 more than this, with the keychain from ShopTo and it got cold votes yet so similar to this price lol.
I am happy keeping my pre order with ShopTo but if I could get it cheaper I would. Not cancelling over about £1 ish though lol.
Intrigued by this Game Collection one though which I did not see and I've been constantly keeping an eye on this too

ShopTo comes up to roughly £44 now because they charge £1 delivery for orders under £50, and they only give a poster and no keychain now.
The previous price (the one I assume you posted) was good, especially since it came with both pre-order bonuses, so I don't know why it got voted cold.
TGC one was for £40.95 and came with both pre-order bonuses too, but now they upped the price to £50.
Been playing this since yesterday, not bad at all

Or have you managed to get the Switch version early through some jiggery pokery?
If your switch is one that can be modded you can cfw on it. playing the game myself and it is great game
13.65GB for those who were wondering
Whilst I’ve also been guilty of cfw in the past with various consoles, surely this game deserves to be purchased legitimately
Odds on getting this on release day?

I asked shopto and with them I had to pay for the dpd24 to get it from them on release date

That might be the best way to play it portably, unfortunately. I’ve just read this so called Definitive Edition runs @ 378p ~ 540p max in handheld mode and 540p ~ 720 docked. I’m someone who doesn’t give 2 stuffs for visuals over gameplay, but this isn’t good enough, especially if you compare that with the Switcher 3. Yeah, my pre-order has bitten the dust.

For someone that doesn't give 2 stuffs for visuals over gameplay, you sure give more than 2 stuffs in reality, lol. I mean, this was the exact same in Xenoblade 2/Torna, and it was barely noticeable. Certainly less so than a big framerate dip. It's 720p, and drops only if necessary.

There’s a difference between graphical fidelity and game optimisation (in this case resolution) which does effect the experience. In my opinion, that low of a resolution will look very soft on the Switch’s screen and that’s not an experience I am looking for.

huh really? so the price they state on the ShopTo page now has additional £1 on it? That sucks lol. Still it's only £3 difference to this deal if you really do want the extras!
Ah I see, no keychain now.
Well I may still cancel mine if they don't send it soon. I was hoping to get it a week early like the VII Remake but don't think this title will be lol

To be fair I cannot say anything about the handheld experience if that's what you are focusing on, on TV the games play absolutely fine. The resolution on handheld is quite low.
How you getting £41 pounds it coming up as £43.10

They upped the price :/
There is another seller on eBay selling the game for £40, looks like it will be shipped the 29th & received later. No key-ring or poster. Probably not worth the risk tbh if you got the Boss Deals £41 buy.

Not quite sure I fully understand your comment. If you’re saying that playing a game portably can not offer the best way to play, then in my opinion, you’re wrong and it’s subjective at best. Otherwise you’ll have to clarify what you meant. From memory it played well on a new 3DS

What I got from your comment was that you think that the 3ds version is the best version?

The Switch version is the definitive edition, nevermind the graphics just the additional content (Epilogue), remastered OST, quality of life changes etc.

I don't understand why you'd want to go back to the 3ds version when you can play it portably on the Switch and it will look better than that (also control better)

Still think that the 3ds is more "portable" in every aspect but we're talking about the game - I didn't mean that playing a game portably takes away from the experience.

I got a £5 off code so ordered it for £35. Worth a punt.

So interestingly, although ordered on eBay, it came in an Amazon parcel from Amazon in Dunfermline! So I managed to get it for £35 from Amazon via that eBay seller even though Amazon sell it for £50. Go figure.

Wow... That is a steal! Not sure how he/ she managed to do that ? maybe a secret Amazon director who's making up for Amazon not paying taxes ?

Unless Amazon accidentally sent me my cancelled order. But given they weren’t dispatching games I doubt it. Lucky me!
