News: What is going on with the UK Final Fantasy X HD Preorder?

“I want to listen to your story, I really do…”

Final Fantasy X HD is a much awaited title all over the world, so I guess I expected it to be readily available for pre-order when Square Enix made the announcement a few weeks back. Truth is, it is proving notoriously difficult to find for UK customers.

Amazon UK is normally good at following Amazon US a few days later. Similar to Kingdom Hearts 1.5: the pre-order was announced two weeks after the US version. The limited edition was ripe for the picking, and even though it sold out within a few days, it was still available.

With FFX HD, there appears to be a dud listing on Amazon, and no news of the limited edition (with the artbook), and no news of the standard version either.

UK customers usually get rubbish offers. Yes, thanks for making us pay a little more to get that “bonus” artbook for Kingdom Hearts 1.5. No free upgrades with each pre-order for us. Nope. However, I wouldn’t mind paying a little bit more to get the limited edition for FFX HD.

Is the only option to import it from the US at a ridiculous cost? It will cost roughly £40, which seems a little too much, even for my collecting niggles.

After scouring through the internet, a dead pre-order button was found at ShopTo, which seems to have the limited edition… but out of stock.

Backing up here, I understand that this is “just a game”, and “just an artbook”, and my life won’t explode in a fireball if I don’t get my hand on it. However, as someone that missed out the original FFX craze (I was a humble student in high school with limited money), I would love to jump on the bandwagon and enjoy the ride.

I am keeping fingers, toes and eyes crossed that Amazon gets a pre-order page ready.

Update: See my post here for the preorder information,
