More Demon’s Souls shipping to stores due to overwhelming demand
This of course is assuming that you don’t want the Deluxe Edition with the 160 page guide. That version is officially sold out!
In the press release from Atlus, it was stated that stores have been shipped additional copies of Demon’s Souls and they should be arriving this week.
There is no indication to how many copies that stores across America will have, but it’s best that you make haste. If you haven’t gotten the game yet, and you want it but can’t find it, then you’ve already failed once! You don’t want to miss out on this opportunity.
“We’re thrilled at the level of interest and acclaim gamers are showing for Demon’s Souls, one of the best reviewed games of the year and one of the highest-rated role-playing games of all time,” stated Aram Jabbari, Manager of PR and Sales for Atlus. “We’re working quickly to get more copies of the game out onto store shelves. We thank fans for supporting a daring, innovative product, and we ask interested gamers to be patient as stock is replenished.”
Oh, and the Deluxe Edition? It looks like you’re out of luck finding one now.
The publisher also announced that the game’s Deluxe Edition, which featured a 160-page strategy guide and collectible embossed slipcase, is now considered out of print in North America and will not be remanufactured.
Ouch! This is good and bad news for gamers who haven’t picked up Demon’s Souls yet. The classic saying of “you snooze, you lose” seems to appropriately describe this situation. For those of us that have the Deluxe Edition, just take another whiff of it right now….oh yeah.
Don’t forget to check out our Demon’s Souls review, it’s just as awesome as the game itself (ok, maybe a little less awesome).
