Can't find a copy anywhere?

I gone to every store to try and get a boxed copy of the gamy for the mystery prize box promo but everyone is sold out and I have been told countless times it's not being restocked. What gives?

    It's supposedly being pulled from the shelves.  It might do the same thing that ESO did when it got pulled from the shelves which is go B2P or possibly even F2P.

    Just go to the game website.  I downloaded it from there.  They offered a free 10/day trial or some such thing.

    I guess because it's going F2P? I think the mystery box promotion only applies to physical copies.

    Amazon 20 bucks i think.

     

    May be others didn't check further.

    EDIT: These are region locked for the key for the promo...so make sure you do NOT buy from U.S. if on EU or other way around.

     

    And yes must be a boxed copy from what i read not a digital key.

    I wonder if they're doing this boxed copy promo just to clear the shelves of stock. There must be a significant return cost if retailers pull them off the shelves and send them back to the publisher, right?

     

    I doubt the included tchotchkes will appeal to someone who's never played the game. So of course it's designed to get the hardcore fans to buy the same game five or six times before it goes F2P/B2P. Pretty smart marketing.

    Could be, but maybe some stores don't have the boxed version anymore because they simply sold out.

    I still see them on the shelves in different stores.

    Is not the same.  ESO got pulled from Australia and somewhere else in advance, and likely without knowing Zenimax was going to re-release the game again with the same price a month later.  Because here in the states, still Gamestop and Wallmart have some of the original release boxes at the re-released original retail price.

     

    My local Gamestop has copies of Wildstar,  but with the retail price of $39.99 which I find expensive for 30 days plus a rare.   Gonna check tomorrow the BestBuy in the  big city to see if  they have copies, since they had it for sale at $19.99.
